4th Edition Earthdawn

12 posts in this topic

So who liked the Earthdawn RPG? Well good news.  It's Back!  FASA is back too and after re-aquiring the license for Earthdawn, they have cleaned it up, made it all shiny again, and are breathing new life into it.

 

The kickstarter prerelease book I have access to is pretty light on the setting but apparently they've moved the "Metaplot" storyline forward to just after the forcers of Barsaive headed up by Throal have booted the Therans out of the province...

 

I've already noticed a few changes that I like (the removal of Karma Ritual and Durability as Telents you have to spend Legend on for one) But I'm curious to know if anyone else is an Earthdawn fan?

Not really, but I've always like that they made the halflings cannibals! 

 

What setting is the new edition going to use? The same?

Umm the cannibal Halflings were from the Dark Sun world for D&D... Earthdawn is the way back prehistory of the Shadowrun universe

Jordan sins around and tips over his own feet and fails to see the nekkid Chris Pratt dash out of the room has he picks himself up off the floor...

 

"Dammit!"

I loved the setting and some ideas in the game I just utterly hated the crazy step system with all the dice. Rolling 1d10 + 1d8 + 1d6 + 1d4 for a single roll is just silly

It has windlings, so I like it a lot.

 

All other concerns are moot.

HA!  I was just looking at Windlings and imagining them as different Disciplines.... I think the most awesome has to be a Windling Sky Raider! The idea of an tiny little fairy person dressed like a barbarian and screaming out a high pitched cry as they use the Battle Shout talent to intimidate his enemies is just hilarious to me....

Here is a question for ED fans... Was there ever a name guide for the various races?

Jordan, you basically read my mind. Uncannily so.

I do not recall there being a guide, but if you read the name you get a pretty good idea. Hmm. there might have been a mention about names in the players guide or something like that.
