    Silence and Adept/Spellsword Skills

    Can you use Adept or Spellsword Skills while Silenced? Specifically: Enhanced Strike, Combined Strike, United Blow, etc. Silence says that the target "cannot talk, activate magical items, or cast any spell." However, all of the Adept/Spellsword Skills use the text "expend a spell" rather than...

    Intercept and Killing Blow

    A question came up at our last game: Can you Intercept a Killing Blow? Here's the Beta Rules text for reference (emphasis mine): My call on the field was "Yes", and since you cannot perform a Killing Blow on an unwilling, undisabled target, it effectively interrupted the Killing Blow. I...

    Creating A Bestiary

    I spent several weeks studying a group of imprisoned Volig. They do not speak the common tongue (uncertain whether that is due to biology or choice), but can communicate with each other, similar to wolves or other pack animals. They are aggressive against other races, but even when placed in...
