Re: Calculation of ADPs in Updated PDF

Wow, did my search skills fail me. I actually posted this very same question a day or two ago when I couldn't find any reference to it via a forum search. Ah well, I've removed the post and will continue from here. :) First off, the updated version of Eldritch looks much better Dan, congratulations!...

A Few More Questions

Our next game is Wednesday and I've come up with a couple more questions I'd like to have answered before we get started (especially as this session will include our first caster): 1- Where are the ranges for ranged weapons? If they were left out, have they been put in an errata? 2- I'm a little fuz...

Re: Now, that's interesting about Eldritch prices... %)

Oddly enough, my players and I were just talking about this. We decided to use copper coins (100 to 1 gold), silver coins (10 to 1 gold) and gold coins. But to reduce the high numbers of coins we take current prices (not accounting for market trends) and divide by 20, rounding up or down for odd res...

Re: Armor

I figured as much but wanted to make sure before I told my players it's just a matter of characterization and taste. Thanks for the info. :)

Armor

My players and I finally had our first game session last night and it went very well. Everybody was really happy with how the game played out. :) And the only question that really came up was about the various types of armor. Is there any reason (besides in game/roleplaying) that every character wou...

Re: Random Questions

Thanks Dan, I'm glad you liked the movement idea. If nothing else it would make a perfect "sidebar option" like the rest that are so common in Eldritch (I love those by the way, especially how they are mixed in with playtest insight). And, yup, we picked up the shortened character sheet. I...

Re: Random Questions

Basically...smoke em if you got em? :) The only question I have regarding your answers is the PC who acts in Battle Phase 2 has a reflex of d10 as you mentioned. But you said his speed would be 10' per phase. However, I mentioned above that his speed was a d4 (reflexes is for initiative and speed is...

Re: Random Questions

Thanks for the answers Dan, I appreciate them. And sorry about the crying baby. ;) The only thing I'm still a little shaky on is movement. Before I get into that though...it seems that even you don't use the system presented in the book, so will that be changed in the upcoming revisions? Until then ...

Re: Permanent spell effects?

I'm new to Eldrtich so my knowledge of the system is shaky at best but I have been running fantasy rpgs since 1985 so I do at least have a thought. ;) What about adding a new effect (or perhaps spell, not sure which would be best) specifically for making certain other effects permanent? I've no idea...

Re: Random Questions

Thanks much, that neatly takes care of questions 3 and 4. :) By the way, you mentioned the formula for calculating Resilience has been changed but I don't see that in the FAQ...is there some other place for errata I haven't found yet? Also, is the simple initiative system you use (regarding answers ...

Random Questions

I looked through ERP, the FAQ and the forum and couldn't find these questions...so if they've been answered before I apologize in advance. :) 1- Page 25, Simultaneous Attacks: The text says, "Handle opting for a simultaneous action as an extra, free attack for the defender. However, once the de...

Re: Bestiary?

Is the wiki still around? I can't find the link to it, but I'm probably looking right over it. lol No. The website was put together by some volunteers, but they didn't have the time to maintain it, so I felt a poorly maintained website was worse than none at all. The wiki can be recreated using one...

Re: New to Eldritch

I had a sit down with my players last night and they seem to like the game (though I admit we haven't finished our read through) enough to give it a playtest. I'm still combing the rules to make sure I'm getting everything and so far, it's not as rough as some made it sound. Though I admit I still ...

Re: New to Eldritch

How about that, two surprises in one day. Another C&C player in VA (I didn't know of any outside my group though I had heard rumors) and a designer who's readily available. Shocking. :) Hey Jackal, where are you located? I'm in the Shenandoah Valley. Pretty far from any other C&Cers, or so ...

New to Eldritch

I've been playing one fantasy rpg or another since 1985 (C&C most recently) and I wanted to give Eldritch a try for something different. I picked it up some time ago and was quickly frustrated by the layout and seeming complexity of the game. But after doing some digging and research (thanks for...
