The barbarian Otto of Clan Northwood is dead…along with the rest of the party. (Can you say “Total Party Kill”?) So, we’re all starting from scratch with mostly classes we have never played: a human skinchanger, a death knight, a dwarf oathbreaker and potentially one unknown (if he ever comes back from coaching wrestling on TB nights).
So, I’m sure we’ll have several questions on these new abilities, but we’ll start with these two:
Nature-Singing: Support Nature descriptors are new to me personally. We’ve had a halfling in the past with Merrymaking and my bard’s Singing will possibly function much the same. I just want to make sure we’re doing it right. Basically, when we camp, the halfling would do a Nature: Merrymaking test to relieve Angry or Afraid conditions, whichever was more prevalent in the party. Whatever the Ob would be to normally relieve the condition, the GM would add one to that to relieve the entire group. (Angry would go from an Ob 2 Will test to an Ob 3 Merrymaking test, Afraid from 3 to 4). Success would relieve whoever had that particular condition. Failure would relieve none. Is that how the rule was intended? It’s kind of vague under the “Hidden Nature Rules” section.
Death Knight-Vow to the Lords of Famine: This benefit reads “Once per session, when made Hungry and Thirsty, the Death Knight may recharge an expended use of the Cadaverous trait. If the Death Knight has not used their trait yet this session, you may increase your trait by 1 until the end of the session.”
So, if his Cadaverous trait were L1, it’s pretty obvious how this works.
However, due to a Nature question during character building, his Cadaverous trait is already L2 and usable on all appropriate tests, so the recharge benefit is of no use. But, if he waits to use it until after he gains the H&T condition, it will upgrade to L3, correct?
And what about when the trait actually reaches L3 (+1s to all appropriate tests)? Is the benefit obsolete then or am I missing something.
I’m sure we’ll have more questions in the near future, but these two will do for now. Thanks in advance.
