Hello,
Thanks for the RPG! I'm having a blast with my group, but after the Sage Answers and some gaming sessions I've still got some questions about the rules.

- At page 166 there's a section about Magic Attacks. Maybe it's a term for attacking with spells, but from what I've understand mages, witchers & priest can make those magic attacks, as a kind of cantrip standart attack (like the basic attack of mages in Witcher video games). My problem is that I haven't seen anywhere what are the damage of the magic attack or its range (would assume it's melee, so about 2m). Also, witchers can use signs sure, but the magic attack doesn't feel very in tune with the profession, since their understanding and use of magic is limited.

- In one of the Sage Answers from Talsorian blog Cody is writing that : "If you get a large group of Nekkers ganging up on one person, that person can be taking defense penalties up to -4 or -5 on top of whatever they are taking as penalties for their...See more

1. Its a term for attacking with a spell.
2. This will be in the update/errata. You suffer a -1 to Defense Actions for each enemy beyond the first adjacent to you. An enemy must be capable of attacking you for you to get the penalty.
3. Magic Healing as written is not an Active duration so it doesn't require concentration.
4. That certainly could be house ruled. We didn't want to make Craftsmen a less attractive class by making it harder to craft in the field, though.

On page 25 for the familial fate, I noticed that for the family "your family is alive and together" tells you to go to parents and the "your parents are alive" tells you to go the family. I'm assuming this is a typo and they should be the other way around?

Please add Bookmarks/an Outline to the PDF ASAP. It’s not that complicated from InDesign! Also compressing the file reduces the file size by more than 80%, thank you!

Reducing file size will decrease the quality of pictures, i certanly would rather have a bigger file with good quality. However uploading a detailed original size and a reduced size pdf would solve this problem.

this totally depends on the settings of the compression; I don't care, what they will decide on, just two things:

1) DriveThruRPG has forcibly compressed files of other publishers to be more user-friendly in the past, I don't see why it would be different here

2) I compressed the file with ilovepdf.com with the default settings (basically 150dpi are more than enough for a digital file, unless you're into printing), and it removed 80% of the file size successfully

I don't have problems doing these things myself, I was just weirded out a bit, why it wasn't done already. Sometimes, publishers will offer two different file sizes, one might be digital use, the other printing. We'll see what they go for. Of course I wouldn't want bad quality.

Hello! I'm wondering about a rule on page 48. It states that your character can deadlift 50 times your body in kilograms. If I have understood the rules correctly your avarage character is able to deadlift around 250kg. This seems like a lot and I wonder if I understood everything.
Customer avatar
Levente K October 12, 2018 7:54 pm UTC
PURCHASER
That is correct, but 4-5 points in an attribute is the avarage for adventurers, the common folk is below that, 3-4 is avarage and 5 is pretty good. well 150-200kg deadlift is kinda much but peasant were and still are stronger than city people so you could assume it's okay.

Hello, I have a question about Danger rolls when you determine the Outcome of a Decade in your character's life (Witcher) . As I understand, I am free to choose the Risk I took for that specific Decade, but I got lost on how to actually determine if there was any danger or not. I can see the percentages listed below each Risk level, but I don't understand what they mean in terms of rolling. (Pages 242, 245)
Customer avatar

PUBLISHER
You roll percentile dice (2d10, with 1 die as the ones and 1 as the tens. So, if you roll a 5 and a 4, you've rolled 54). If the die is equal to or under the number in the Danger row for Safety you picked, you encountered Danger and need to roll on the Danger charts on page 245.

Example: Demetrius has decided his Witcher, Prym, spent much of his third decade as a Witcher engaged in study and not out in the field. He picks the Cautious Safety level and rolls percentile dice (2d10): 2 and 7 which is 27. That's above 10% so no Danger. Demetrius goes on to roll for Outcome (he rolls a 1 on a 1d10 and picks up a Benefit). Having spent a long time studying, Demetrius thinks the next decade of Prym's life was particularly hazardous and he goes with Risky. He rolls a 33, which is lower than 75% so there's Danger! Worried for his Witcher, Demetrius turns to the Danger section to see just what happened...

What happens if I roll bot d10's a the same time? Example: I roll a 2 and a 5, can I use it as a 52% or as 25%?

use different colored dice and set which is for the 1's and which is for the 10's, if you have only the same color then don't roll simultaniously... duh

You should always designate one die to be the 1s and one die to be the 10s before you roll.

I'm wondering why there's a lack of hyperlinking and no outline included within this pdf, especially as so much of the content requires the reader to go off in search of clarification on systems. I'm not sure if it's my pdf viewer or not, as some content is highlighted and obviously meant to be a quick reference to a system or rule contained further within.

I'm enjoying the system thus far and can't wait to play test it, but the PDF itself leaves a lot to be desired for how much it costs. Hopefully that's something looked at in the future.

Hi, I purchased the book on Friday the 12th of October 2018 and just added the bookmarks and hyperlinks myself, took me about an hour to complete. I'd be happy to pass this through if you want. The only thing I haven't hyperlinked yet is the index, but I can do this as well.

Hello
Seen this question but haven’t seen a proper answer for Quen. I cast quen with 4 vitality, are all 4 attacks blocked by regardless of turn (excluding the case when I get exhausted). This ability seems to be game breaking, can you add something like The shield can “ONLY” block multiple attacks in same turn.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
