  Coffins
Posted by: Shawn Loader - Yesterday, 02:31 AM - Forum: Rules Questions - No Replies

clarification on Vampire Coffins for those who own them and those that are hunting them...

the rule: "A coffin may be created from any material, from elaborate stone to simple wood. The bed of the
coffin must be large enough for the vampire to fit into."

is being revised to follow the spirit of the rules so that people can not "cheese" the rule to call obviously not Coffin objects their coffins.

what this means is if you own a coffin and it is a hole in the ground, armoire, sleeping bag, dresser or other household item it will no longer count as a coffin in game. the rule was in place to allow creativity in the material you use to make your coffin for ease of player sake it was not there for people to hide the fact that something is a coffin.

going forward all coffins will have to pass a average Joe test of at first glance if not tagged would a muggle say Hey thats a coffin if the answer is yes then it probably is...


  Greater Undead and Counter Magic
Posted by: Joseph - 07-25-2017, 02:32 AM - Forum: Rules Questions - Replies (5)

"Counter Magic
Pre-requisite: Occupation at 12th Level and at least one 9th Level Witch Hunter Ability
An Occupational Ability for Witch Hunters, this Arcane packet-delivered or touch attack will negate or destroy
any Battle Magic and most Ritual spells of the Witch Hunters Hated spheres. This ability may also counter any
spell that hits the Witch Hunter, so long as it is within their Hated spheres. Counter Magic will act the same as an
Advanced Shield Magic spell in this regard and the defensive call is “Arcane Counter Magic”.
When used offensively, Counter Magic will destroy any one spell within the Hated Spheres of Magic that are
active on the target and has a duration other than instant. The incant for this attack is “Arcane Counter Magic:
<specific spell OR sphere>”. If a sphere is part of the incant, the target chooses one active spell within that sphere
to be removed. If a spell named in the incant is active on the target, it is destroyed. If the specific spell incanted is
not active on the target, the Counter Magic fails without activating defenses. This ability is usable once per day,
per purchase.
Counter Magic may be used against a target without a spirit, such as a cabin. Once again, either a specific spell
may be targeted or a sphere. If an OOG note has been left describing an active spell effect (such as a Ward) and it
is destroyed by the Witch Hunter, they may leave their Counter Magic tag attached to the note to indicate that it
no longer exists. "
Pg. 43 of the core rulebook
Would this be able to instantly destroy things like Death Classes or Greater Undead? That'd be intense. Would it be able to destroy a Lich, and their Phylactery, or just send them to their phylactery? This is an interesting ability.

During the last event I overheard someone waiting for a shaper to do tracking. What skill provides tracking? I have Hunting.. would that give me the ablity to track? How does this work?


  Prelog is OPEN for "Along Came a Satyr" (July 14-16, 2017)
Posted by: SarahM - 07-04-2017, 07:29 AM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

Prelog is now open for our July 14-16, 2017 event
Prelog will remain open until July 11th.

----

The seasons have turned and the warmth of summer has returned has returned to the Valley of Ash. The strawberries have bloomed, the trees whisper in the wind, and the air is blessed with the sweet aroma of blossoms. The long evenings draw themselves out, leaving time for lingering visits and warm glances between friends. And how those fireflies love to dance... are they processing somewhere? Persons who've been in the Valley recognize a certain hollow where they dance there the most this time of year!

This is the season of life and fire but in this season - armies can march, unwholesome things flourish, and the short nights are full of hungry eyes. Is there a sweet scent in the woods beyond the blossoms? Many have smelled it. It is sweet, yes...but tinged with a stink of burnt hair and bitter rue. The birds sing so sweetly, and yet some wonder if it is a requiem.

Highsummer has arrived in the Valley of Ash! Sing, sing if you can, because a year and a day has passed since the last Season of Fire. Who knows who may return to visit the people of Ashendael, and what mischief they may bring?"

Welcome to our third full weekend event of the 2017season.

Unlike Tavern and Day Mods, weekend events are tagged events. If you need some help figuring out your skill tags, just ask for a NPL at log.

There will also be an archery workshop before game run by Carolina Lopez. If you have considered using or do use a bow, we encourage you to meet by the cookhouse clearing (where logistics is held) to attend. Further details to be added once Caro can confirm when she can be onsite.

---------

Some Guild Specific Policies

1. All fire pits must be approved as have a water bucket or C-rated fire extinguisher on hand.
2. Latex weapons are no thrusting.
3. A red safety light is required. Bike lights, a red filter flashlight, red electric glowstick are all valid. It's up to you whether or not you use it, but for your sake we ask that you please have them on hand. Safety Lights should always be pointed towards the ground or kept about hip level or lower, and are considered OOG.
4. Ashendael currently does not allow red armbanding, however we do have a blue armband policy in place. Blue armbands are for individuals with mobility or combat limitations. While you may still engage in combat and your character will still be at risk, a blue armband is a signal to treat you with care. We ask you to please speak with our head medical marshal, Andrea, before donning a blue armband (medic@underworldottawa.ca). We have limited amounts on hand for loan should you wish to swap to blue armband mid-game, but should it be a continuous state, please provide your own.
A blue armband entitles you to the following:
[*]Lightest touch combat strictly enforced, we relate this to being treated in combat as though you were a young child in terms of speed and force.
[*]NPCs will modulate their speed of pursuit to match your speed of running away, i.e. if you can only hobble, will follow at a slow walk until another target comes along.
[*] You may request "Fair Escape" from the marshal of any mod. This means choosing to disengage with a module and wait where the shaper tells you to for the module to end, rather than having to OOG run to get you character to freedom. Bear in mind this puts the well-being of your character into the hands of your fellow players, if more than 50% of them take an effect (including death), so does your character
5. Controlled Substances: Cigarettes and cigars, okay, but please do so by a fire pit and either use the buttcans around site, burn, or field strip your butt. Please use your prescriptions responsibly and report them on your waiver; updates can be sent to medic@underworldottawa.ca. Drugs and alcohol are not permitted on site prior to or during game, and keep your consumption responsible and legal.
6. Once game has started, no vehicles are allowed in the game space, except in the case of medical emergencies.


  2nd game Weapon question
Posted by: Lorena - 06-20-2017, 09:09 PM - Forum: New Player Forum - Replies (7)

I know you can start your second game with 2 simple weapons any way I could stretch that to a 2 handed pole arm the 1.25 pvc for the staff is just to big for my hands comfortably?


  Guild Policy on Tent Cutting
Posted by: Marcus Riverman - 06-20-2017, 02:18 PM - Forum: Rules Questions - Replies (3)

Can locks be used on the inside of tents to prevent lock picking.  Also, if a tent is locked, you just cut through the side.  Link is to the same question on the global rules forum.  Their decision was that it should be a guild specific policy.

  Spell Pyramids
Posted by: Fearlof - 06-20-2017, 07:57 AM - Forum: New Player Forum - Replies (2)

G'day,

So I understand the concept of having to have "two" spell slots below to support the next level spell slot in a pyramid formation but my question is, could I not get all 5 level 1 spell slots, then get all 5 level 2, then get all 5 level 3? IE. Fill a level before moving on to the next?

I was playing with the character builder and noticed it doesn't let you get spell slots except in the pyramid.


  Maybe silly question... Food?
Posted by: Lorena - 06-09-2017, 10:59 AM - Forum: New Player Forum - Replies (4)

My sister and I are coming to our first game ever on the June 16-18, and we are not 100% sure what is the procedure with food. I heard mention often that the is a tavern and we buy in game food but as starting player will I have enough money would I just be easier to bring my own? aside form snacks. also I know the food in tavern is only at specific times. 

also if I do bring some (which I probably will) is there storage options (like a dedicated food area) because camping rules you are not supposed to sleep with you're food because animals. 

finally would food that I brought be considered OOG or am I going to have to guard that too.


  Prelog is OPEN for "Old Oaths" (June 16-18, 2017)
Posted by: SarahM - 06-05-2017, 11:39 PM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

Prelog is now open for our June 16-18 event
Prelog will remain open until June 13th.

----

With summer right around the corner and the orcish warband seemingly driven off, the denizens of the Valley of Ash can take a moment to breath and put their affairs in order. Having matters both solemn (a funeral), and frivolous (the Count’s birthday) to address alongside the continued redevelopment of the Valley, June promises to be a busy and fiscally sound month for the growing town.
However not everything abides by Imperial regulation, and sometimes a community’s proverbial ‘spring cleaning’ can stir oaths long forgotten.

  Scrolls
Posted by: Rhovalin - 05-30-2017, 11:38 AM - Forum: Rules Questions - Replies (4)

So I have read, and read magic, and a sphere in Nature. Does this mean that if I find a scroll, I can only cast it if it is in the Sphere I have? Or can I cast any sphere of magic from a scroll?
