House Rules[]

  • We are using the RedBrick Alternate Discipline rules found here: [1].
  • Windscout sub-Discipline Delver
  • Ba'ru-C'li (Way of the Dragon) Discipline Work in Progress
  • Karma costs 5 LP per point.
  • Movement House Rules: You move a number of hexes equal to your Dexterity Step for combat movement, with a bonus or penalty as follows: Orcs and Elves get +1 Hex, Obsidimen and Dwarves get -1 Hex, Windlings get -2 Hexes for walking and +1 hex for Flying. This isn't a hard and fast rule, but a simple method of resolving movement. Full Movement is twice your combat movement value, as usual.
  • Legend Points for Journal entries are worth Current Circle of the primary discipline x 100 LP.
  • The Tail Dance (Talent) can be used as the second Tail attack instead of rolling to remove the -2 penalty for the attack. In other words, you may elect to simply attack using the Tail Dance roll as the result for the second attack.
  • Ritual of the Ghost Master, as a Talent or a Talent Knack, is not needed to learn from Ghost Masters in this campaign.
  • Wound Balance adds to all Knockdown rolls instead of just Knockdown rolls after taking a Wound. This is to simplify bookkeeping.
