    Diversity Committee: Applicants Needed!

    Since the Alliance Oregon chapter is now closed for business, you may want to check with the new Refuge org to see if their version of this committee has openings. That said, don't let me discourage you from volunteering for Alliance work.

    And from a technical perspective, the CMA recognizes National/Regional events and will accept whatever stamps they're supposed to accept as possible payment methods.

    Platinum legal currency

    The new 2019 coins have a tree on the back and their denomination on the front.

    Gone Exploring

    To whom it may concern, Ever since my horns began growing out some time ago, I have been feeling a swelling sense of wanderlust. The Howling Rage epidemic kept me quite occupied until recently, but since that has been resolved, I have decided that now is a good time to take a nice mistwalk and...

    CMA Change Log

    New Feature: Unplayed Character Reset Characters that have never received PC event credit can be freely reset by players, including their skills and race. So feel free to experiment with that character you've been blanketing. The reset button appears in the Manage Character section when...

    CMA Spirit Forge Wylderkin

    No, the freeplay reset is unrelated to how the spirit forge and racial transformation work. Spirit Forge will reset all your skills to 0 ranks, but leave them "learned". A wylderkin can't pick new racials after they have learned two, even if they later lose all ranks in them. Racial...

    Resolved Dispel and Purify vs Corrupt/Create Undead

    It looks like Corrupt and Create Undead are both in the scope of what Dispel will remove, and neither specifically says it won't. Presumably this would leave the target dead as usual for the spell duration ending. Similarly: While Corrupt is technically in scope for Purify, this presumably...

    Feb 2020 Infograph - Crafting

    Using potions offensively in combat has a ritual requirement (Potion Coating). I guess you could render an enemy helpless (or trick them) to pour a Sleep, Charm, or Paralysis potion down their throat, but that's not exactly a combat usage.

    The Tiberion Council Background and Explanation

    Just to be clear here, you're saying that only characters proclaiming residence in (or are willing to move to) the estate of New Acarthia are eligible? That is, other Acarthian citizens, including anyone living anywhere else in the ducal fiefs, the four baronies within the duchy, the other...

    Relic suggestions, to buy, for an elf

    Is this for your celestial staff-using elf? If so, consider finding the Enhanced Source ritual so that you can use your staff as a source for both schools. But having a backup relic is still a good idea. My recommendation would be some sort of pendant, since you can easily wear it at your neck...

    Dragon stamps Q&A

    As long as the item's ritual count limit isn't hit, yes, all of that is fine. For point #3, in case it isn't clear, the rituals that you cast later would be a distinct batch with its own shorter duration. If you're thinking about buying a Preserve with DS, keep in mind that it's cost effective...

    Confused about Character Creation

    There's no button to submit a character. Just register for an event with it when you're ready. In the "Manage Character" section of the character sheet, there is an option to discard the character. The Templar class was renamed "Spellsword" in 2.0. You can change your character's class at any...

    Traps with the New Game Room Mechanic

    The standard for area traps seems to be that if multiple area traps have the same trigger, then a single instance of the relevant defense will block all of them. So in your example with 5 explosive traps, it would seem like it depends on whether one trap blowing up the other four counts as a...

    Traps with the New Game Room Mechanic

    Tangent: Since Dispel is in the Protection group, Dispel Scrolls can't be placed in scroll traps.

    Spell Store Aspect

    Some spells are Earth and Celestial. If cast from memory, there's nothing in the call to indicate aspect compatibility to the recipient. Does it matter what school the spell slot was if the spell exists in both schools? Do the caster and the recipient need to briefly check OOG that their aspects...

    Looking for volunteers for Treasure Bag

    Thank you for your service, Goodman Belswin! At least a few representatives of the Merchants Guild would be happy to take over this responsibility for you. I eagerly await your instruction on the finer points of this role at your next convenience. - Assistant Guildmaster Markov of the New...

    The reality of the staff rules

    #1 may also be related to the fact that it's a blunt weapon. No blunt weapon in Alliance can stab, whether or not it's got a thrust tip, and whether or not the real-world weapon would be useful to thrust with. They cost less XP to reflect this, but some skills also only work with blunt weapons...

    Resolved 2.0 Carrier Defenses vs Armor

    As I have gotten zero responses on this in Marshal Questions in over a month, could ARC take a stab at it?

    The reality of the staff rules

    Maybe add Warstaff as a special weapon exclusive to 2H Master. All the advantages of Polearm and Staff in one package - two business ends, 1H block, thrusting, relaxed grip rules, and maybe even still counts as a Staff for Archmage purposes.

    Fortress clarifications

    That's lower-case weapon, not Weapon Qualifier, so does this protect against physical delivery Poison-qualifier attacks? Not all weapon attacks do damage. Does fortress block swings like "Weapon Sleep" on the basis that 0 damage is less than 10, or do they go through on the basis that there's no...
