Re: Out Of Character

I don't think there is a house rule for longer term healing, so we fall back on the standard rule which is 1 die per week.

U&WA p35 (Healing Wounds) says: <<On the first day of complete rest no hit points will be regained, but every other day thereafter one hit point will be regained until the character is completely healed. This can take a long time>>.

Since a "campaign turn" is a week long, this means that 3 or 4 hp are alternatively re-gained each turn (each week). So that's an average of 3.5 hp per week, which is pretty much the same thing as one hit-die per week.

Of course, there is clerical/magical healing to throw into the mix also.

Re: Out Of Character

Speaking of "house rules" it has been over a year since the last house rules overhaul, so I think it's time I did some gardening.

Stay tuned...

Given a quick skim thru it, I'd also push the illusionist as a viable option.

Head over to the priomordial ooze area Sully... the dice await...


Playtesting @ ODD74 indicated that the ventriloquism spell's duration of "any number of times during one day" was probably excessively powerful.

that's also in line with "one hit point per every two days of rest" which I believe is the rate given in the lbbs, (I'm a little rusty on the rules though).

Re: Out Of Character

Welcome back Red Baron... good to see you

I agree re: illusionist. I am planning to do a formal overhaul to update the class to V5. Perhaps if someone were to play one (here or in my other games) it might motivate some haste...

Re: Out Of Character

Hey team, I've been having some hardware issues recently; my desktop PC is randomly shutting itself down while in use. Possibly, it's a problem with the power supply or cooling... not sure. I'm on the hunt for a fix. Meanwhile, please bear with me...

Re: Out Of Character

Hey team, I've got myself a cheap(-ish) notebook computer off ebay; I should be able to push onward shortly...

Re: Out Of Character

Belated happy Easter all!

I've been interstate over the Easter weekend with family, but now I'm back.
Tomorrow morning at 5am I head interstate again for the week for work, but I'm sure I will be able to make a few posts on the road. I sense a "challenging" scenario is right around the corner...
