Re: IQ points, talents, spells, XP

XP cost to buy additional attributes = as listed in ITL p. 45; additional IQ does not give additional points to buy talents or spells.

XP cost to buy additional talents or spells:

Re: The Wizard's Guild is very very evil.

Probably more than that even. Just like with any trade professional, if you need someone today you pay a premium. But I think wizards are more likely to barter via the "mana bank" idea I posted in...

Re: TFT Setting Influences

I've written my own appendix N (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1QDvnuXTs5tXzGnt-7lHPbxcnADPcdxVJdZgq3auMGEU/edit?usp=sharing) showing my own influences. TFT is in it...

Re: Knocked up a few classic scale 3d models for printing

Hackaday has an article from October 1 about using an airbrush nozzle, of all things, on an FDM 3d printer to improve detail work. The article recommends against just sticking an airbrush nozzle on,...

Re: The Wizard's Guild is very very evil.

They're charging a lot less than half! $50 a week is what the Guild charges for the use of an apprentice, plus $1 per ST the apprentice uses in casting (ITL p. 60). Interestingly, the Jobs table...

Using metric in TFT - house rules

In my world -- in fact, in my worlds, from here on out -- the Wizards' Guild or whatever passes for it, uses the metric system. Along with any closely related guilds or guilds they oversee (such as...

Re: Why bother with powerstones?

I'm thinking the Wizards' Guilds have what they call a "mana bank". Wizards who know the Aid spell can come in and "deposit" ST via assistance to other wizards. Their total gets tallied, and an...

Re: Why bother with powerstones?

Ah yeah, Rule of Five. I forgot. Five 5-6 pointers. Or thirty of them, and only take five at a time.

Re: Why bother with powerstones?

One 30 point Powerstone takes 30 days to fully recharge. Thirty 1-point Powerstones take one day to fully recharge.

Re: Snow White and the ever diminishing dwarves.

That it does. Might almost make it worth gaming it out again.

Did you ever play Gauntlet Legends (video game)? In that game, every so often you encounter Death, who makes a beeline for you and...

Re: IQ points, talents, spells, XP

I think I did miss that. That's actually very close to what I'm looking at, except that all of the points come out of the same pool. If we make each attribute point two character points, and each...

Re: IQ points, talents, spells, XP

Either IQ is massively overvalued during character creation, and of normal value after (to the tune of 6 to 1 against ST or DX), or it's of normal value during and borderline worthless after.

Re: IQ points, talents, spells, XP

If they're worth more, then okay, but make them cost more also.

If ST and DX are just as critical, why, during character creation, does each cost 100 XP, but IQ cost 600 XP? Or why is each...

Re: IQ points, talents, spells, XP

The problem statement is that during character creation, points spent on IQ effectively get you 600 XP worth of "stuff" (e.g. 1 IQ plus 500 XP worth of talents or spells), while points spent on ST or...

Re: IQ points, talents, spells, XP

Those might change. I at least wanted to have the basic character points idea, and doubling above a certain attribute total.



I was composing a long post to go into the IQ/Talents thread,...

Re: Snow White and the ever diminishing dwarves.

Hmm. Maybe if the caster has the Bola and/or Lasso talents, they can use the Rope spell as a bola (without the damage) and/or lasso. In this case, treat the Rope spell as a Thrown spell rather than...

Re: New Staff to-hit roll using IQ! (serious balance problem, no?)

I like all of this a lot better. I might house-rule flip the 1d+2 damage with the free action, but everything about this is better.

Re: Snow White and the ever diminishing dwarves.

Ooo. +1d of difficulty to hit the staff (unless Grumpy is doing something silly like Defending with his staff...), and if it hits, make a 3/ST vs. 3/ST contest. If the player wins, Grumpy loses...

IQ points, talents, spells, XP

I keep wanting to veer off into house rules territory out there, so I thought I'd start a topic in here for open discussion of how the general readership would house rule it.
