Re: Stalo: Ancestral Weapon

I think it is possible for Ancestral Weapon to be two-handed. The Stalo would just need to spend some of the QR on increasing the reach. This does create the slightly odd situation of possibly having a Reach 2, Size 3 Great Sword, as Size for ancestral weapon is 3 or Reach whichever is greater. This...

Cheesy Blacksmith Exploit

So I have a Blacksmith who has the Active Power Soul Bound Strike. This gives a bonus for every item crafted by the Blacksmith that he is equipped with. The player wants to craft a bunch of QR 1 bells, etc, attach them to his clothing and get a massive bonus for being equipped with many, many, self-...

Looks nice. You know I'm interested, but I also understand having an overloaded plate.

Re: New Norn Tips?

Somewhere Andrew described FotN play as asking "What do I want to do and what runes do I need to play to do it?" This is a very sound approach. Many things can be done with generic actions by playing any rune. Yes, characters really are *that* heroic. When they start building rune chains o...

Re: How to Record/Track Power & Skill Information for Dwelle

I copyied the text from the pdf versions and pasted it into a word processing page for each character. Then drew in the runes by hand in cloloured marker. A good bit of work, but it made the game play smoother. I also searched the web for appropriate pictures for each NPC in Fafnir's and printed the...

Re: How to Record/Track Power & Skill Information for Dwelle

In my game we made "cheat sheets" for each character with the various powers and skills of each character as well as which runes they were bound to.

Re: FOTN Evangelists

Raleel and I are currently talking up FotN over on The RPG Site forum on a thread asking about games where mechanics and setting work together in synergy.

Makes me wish I was running FotN now.

Re: Gender Stereotypes

I have had players choose to play characters of different genders. I have also had players play the "female" achetypes with male characters and the "male" archetypes with female characters. Certain roles or Archetypes in game terms are more strongly associated with certain gender...

Re: Inspirational Movies

Beowulf and Grendel. It features Sarah Polley so worth watching for that if nothing else.
