Re: Liber Arcanum

OK! Thanx for your patience everyone. We had a slight format malfunction for the print version, but it doesn't cause any issues with the digital version. Since we have received final approval for the project the digital version of Liber Arcanum is now live and available at http://rpg.drivethrustuff....

Re: Liber Arcanum

And it's off to the printer for a proof copy!! I hope to have that back within the next week or two, but it's out of my hands for the time being. Thanx everyone for your patience, I'll be spending the next few days building the book-marks for the digital version and both will be available soon. :D

Re: 5E arrives at Goodman Games

Maybe you're right. I've been going over the rules as I can using the copies of the PH available at the games, but I don't think I'll ever understand the 5e system well enough to run it. Maybe I'll pick up one of these modules and see and donate it to the group to see if it makes the DM's job any ea...

Thanx for taking the time to respond, but I think you've just served to highlight the extreme fragility of the brick and mortar game shops.

Re: Dispel Magic

My understanding is that there's no hard rule covering this aspect of casting; as such it is entirely a matter of play style. For my games I've always assumed that spell casters (arcane & divine) have the ability to dismiss spells that they have cast even if it is upon someone else; unless the spell...

Re: Liber Arcanum

Well the quest for Liber Arcanum continues because in the last week, we've added another artist to our intrepid band of heroes. I'm also currently negotiating with a 4th artist, so the current layout receives a stay of execution!! :mrgreen:


More Later,

I just hope the the change in date to June 21 isn't a permanent switch. If it is then I won't be able to participate in FRPG Day any more due to scheduling conflicts.

One way to mitigate this kind of metagaming, and encourage the role playing aspects of spellburning, is to use the alternate spellburn effects table created by my friend Judge Hook. http://www.goodman-games.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=44802&hilit=alternate+spellburn Not sure how 'metagaming' ap...

Re: Limits on magical healing

Just my 2cp on pg. 108... I have always thought that this part: Spellburn represents a mortal sacrifice to a supernatural entity for strictly selfish purposes. A cleric’s ability to heal represents drawing on the power of a god to further that god’s agenda in the mortal realms. These are inherently ...
