Eldritch RPG: The Revised Edition

Greetings fellow gamers, I am revising the Eldritch Role Playing game, and we are in the last 24 hours of the Kickstarter. I've funded 80%, so I implore any fans of the original edition to come take a peek! I've added a complete campaign setting, and updated the game from years of feedback. Please c...

Re: Updated PDF's

Oh, and I will be expanding the spell lists too. You can control the available spell lists ya know :-). On the other hand, the improvised magic option is fun. I do see the comedy in sword to butter. Must have been the Nefarious Muffin Mage. Not so much the gross out as spell design degenerated from ...

Re: Endurance/Resistance

Hey it's been a while since I checked here, so I apologize it's been so long to respond. I think you're right, and the two can be combined. I'd simply increase the role Willpower plays in Resilience since most of the physical is represented by Toughness. For example... Toughness (Endurance MV ×2) Re...

Re: Perceive

I just thought of a way to handle Perceive and link it to Scrutiny or perception based rolls for other Abilities. What if you could get "temporary" Specialisation or Mastery depending on how well you succeed. And these can be obviously supernatural or superhuman. For example with 1 Margin of Succes...

Re: Perceive

And going to page 53... The detection of magic is a basic cantrip that all arcanists know from the start, even before gaining knowledge of and access to the spells of various Power Sources. For instance, a magic user with ability only in Arcanum (no Specializations) can still spend a single spell po...

Re: Perceive

A communication Effect for languages could be wrapped into Perceive if we made it Perceive/Comprehend. That would work without too much of a major change, I think, at least at first glance.

Re: Perceive

Let's take another look at the text. I think you've raised some points that may require some re-thinking about the Effect. For one, having an ability like Augury that limits an magical Effect category seems somewhat arbitrary at this point. So, Perceive "represents detection spells allowing one to f...

Re: Perceive

Hello! Sorry, you're right it has been quiet around here. The Perceive effect can be used for divination, augury, clairvoyance, telepathy, etc. was there some spell you were creating? Hello, Not sure how many still visit these boards but I'll post my question here regardless and maybe I get lucky :)...

Re: Print vs. PDF

Also I wonder how you rule with Obfuscate effects vs. Curse. Obfuscate effect can penalize everyone attacking you (regardless if Melee, Ranged, Unarmed or Arcanum basically) based on the premise that you are hard to detect for whatever reason. This seem awfully potent where Curse effect will effect...

cog wrote: Yeah, I might just add that to the Advantage as well. +1 Die rank at which level? Basic tier? Should it have some effect if there is spill over, ie. Basic Feat of Strength at 1d12 already.
yes, to basic tier. Then +1 if already at d12. That should work.

Re: Active games

There's been a change of plans and I will use the Eldritch rules to play a three weekend campaign in the Dark Sun setting. I have started to stat up the races which is progressing nicely. It is fairly easy when it comes to Abilities but I have to create some new Advantages to capture some race-spec...

Re: Print vs. PDF

I tried the magic system out of the box and it did not fly very well unfortunately. It feels clunky where the rest of the rules are so smooth and also a mage type character is rather quickly drained of his spell points and is reduced to whatever other way of contributing to the group beside spellca...

Good evening! I am blessed in that we have a rotating group of 3 GM's and it isn't Ray's turn yet but he is planning on running ERP. He is getting used to the system (ie realizing it is simplier than we make it out to be), So far Characters and combat are things he likes, right now he is dealing wit...

Re: Rules updates?

How did the GM session go at Rolecon? I'm going to GM Eldritch RPG for Gameday of Russian Rolecon. I think that for fast-paced play that is required for such events Eldritch works fantastically. I'm going to run the Swamp adventure , though I may add a few NPCs to it. Were there any rules changes I ...

Re: Active games

Let us know how it goes! I enjoy hearing feedback from groups playing with the ruleset. I do not currently have a game of Eldritch running but I hope to have in the near future. I will use the rules in a sort of steam punk fantasy setting which is based on a swedish game actually. So I will "port" t...

Re: Designers Blog #2: Character Creation in ERP

Well I ashamed to say I figured out what my difficulty with the magic system was, It's really easy to make spells. <sigh> The tight rope spell is the transport effect it lets him move in way he couldn't without magic. There is one mechanic to cast spells so you only need to list the power source an...
