Re: Traps

That's a great method that can be applied to lots of situations (dodging falling debris or poison darts, snatching up items on the run, etc.). Good thinking!

Re: Magic Item questions

1. Some items (magic sword) can be used by anyone with an arm, while others (wand perhaps) would require knowledge on the part of the user to activate its abilities. 2. Draiocht is modern Gaelic for "magic." 3 & 4. I'm not sure 5. Arcanum is restricted, is it not? (No book in front of me.) Assuming ...

Re: Magis system question: spell points

That's what I took it to mean. As for probability, all I would consider is average results. d4 = 2.5 d6 = 3.5 d8 = 4.5 I have a friend that would calculate the chance of rolling 16+ on a d8+d6+d4, but not me. If you need to defeat something's defense, bring all you got! If you do damage to yourself ...

Re: Theoretical Maximums for the Defense Pools?

Really Dan, why should you get extra defense because you have knowledge of weapons that you are not wielding? Personally, it would make more sense if you only got DP for what is in your hand(s). You cannot parry very well with that sword that you left at home, or the pike you sold in the last town.
