It can be very interesting in certain campaign styles, less dungeon crawling and more political intrigue/urban adventure kind of thing. That said assassin 3 is a good move, particularly in combination with some bard spells (silence, invisibility etc)
If a character does good things and is a good person but wants to enact violent revenge on an individual or group of people, what alignment are they? Can you have good alignment but still want specific, bloody vengeance?
Would it be best to start in Bard or Rogue? Also should I go to 4 in one first for the ASI or 3 then 3 and play a Half-Elf to make up for the late ASI?
Pretty good doesn't mean shit when everything insta kills you.
Do they think the revenge is a good act? Do they deeply believe the world would be a better place when that individual or group is dead? If so you can call it good, neutral or evil. Considering that they're nice other then that I'd call them Good.

Think of it this way. They're basically replacing moments where the entire squad is falling back with you occasionally having a dude scamper away or a bunch run off instead. More key, if your guardsmen are holding a position, they'll continue to hold it so long as some of the guys are left. This makes them less likely to get entirely swept in combat.

Plus, you'll have to consider that most armies will probably have some way to mitigate this. I'd imagine Guard will be able to get commisars to cap the number of fleeing guys at 1 a lot of the time.

Effectively, yes. Basically, if 6+model count is not at least 2 above the Ld score they would never break until they're all dead, if my math is correct.

working on a homebrew of it.

Going with a beasts get a semi morality by blending in with other splats and that is put in jeopardy when they don't act the way they should(they get a patchwork morality based on who is in their family, and doing things their family members don't like makes them loose their appetite), merging with your horror is harder but stronger(so is getting Satiety), nightmares are powerful but contagious and hard to get rid of, Atavisms are a massive pain in the ass to do anything with and so much a touching one makes them somehow feel more broken then they already are.

Also heroes start with High integrity and get most their shit from spending willpower and shit I'm still working on it its in Alpha.

Like holy bloody hell beast base has some really weird power curves and trying to get a consistent 'feel' is like sending your dick threw a cheese grater.
Hey, so Forsaken by Rome is extremely good, probably the best chapter in Dark Eras Companion. Someone should run a Forsaken by Rome/Requiem for Rome campaign.
So has anyone on the General made homebrew Changeling courts with the 2E preview?

Quick question again

What's up with spirits and paracritter's normal weapon immunity?
Is it total immunity or more like some variant of hardened armor?
4e and 5e
>Immunity to Normal Weapons: This applies to all attacks that are not magical in nature; weapon foci, spells, and adept or critter powers function normally. If the critter also has the Allergy weakness, then the Immunity does not apply against non-magical attacks made using the allergen..
>Effectively, the critter has a Hardened Armor rating equal to twice its Essence against that particular kind of damage (see Hardened Armor, p. 397). This means that if the modified Damage Value of the attack does not exceed the Immunity’s rating, then the attack automatically does no damage. If the modified DV exceeds the Immunity rating, perform a Damage Resistance test as normal, adding the Immunity rating to the dice pool for this test. Additionally, half (rounded up) of the Immunity rating counts as automatic hits on this test.

I think he's talking about IRL wizards. You have to be 30 years a virgin before you gain your magical powers, and during those early years/levels, the fighters are getting all the action.

Wizard is the ultimate "power through enlightenment" beta fantasy, and WotC knows this. It will never not be good.

Oh no, how awful. You have to sit at the back where you can't do any-oh fucking wait you're a goddamn caster and are not hurt at all by having to position yourself at the back where you are now safe from 90% of enemies you would face at that level as they would have to run past the entire rest of your party.

...the 4e swordmage is an ARCANE class.

It's expressly a spellcaster.

That is why Fighter powers tend to have Reliable. So they are not expended if they fail.

I like the wild magic surge mechanic in 5e, something like that would probably work for causing random effects and sometimes explosions. Something like, every time you cast a spell you roll a d20. If the number rolled is equal to or under the level of spell you're trying to cast, a wild surge happens.

I'm trying to make an OSR setting and it's fucking tough cookies.
Not yet, those are planned for later. But I am glad you saved my shitty class inspired by another anon.
Well the other anon was me, so I'd feel terrible if I didn't save it. And it did trigger a bunch of other anons, so clearly, it's a great idea.

I think that's neat, but it still makes the spells predictable.

Wizards have nice orderly spell lists. They're like the guy in tacticool armour with bandoliers and carefully labelled pouches and hand signals.

Sorcerers are like these guys.

I think they could be friendly with either the Samari (sharkfolk) or the Guppi (cannibal frogfolk), but it's just as likely that they are all at war with each other.

Let's go with the Samari, since they lack a real nation to wage war on the Ogren. The Guppi are ambushing fucksticks as far as the Ogren are concerned.
Its 4 islands that collided or some shit like that
