    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...

    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? https://alliancelarp.com/forum/threads/2-0-carrier-defenses-vs-armor.40400/

    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...

    Resolute vs Massive

    Can you Resolute against Massive damage? Massive beats any kind of defense except the ones that cause you not to get hit in the first place (Evade, Dodge, Phase). One of the defense types is "Reduced". While some "Reduced" type defenses are mentioned in the packet, Resolute isn't listed as a...

    2.0 Carrier Defenses vs Armor

    In 1.3, there were rulings to the effect that the carrier effect doesn't "count" until it gets through your armor in terms of immunity, meaning that a carrier that you're immune to can still damage your armor (such as here). Since defenses were reworked to work more uniformly in 2.0, does that...

    Vorpal Coating with other swings

    Vorpal Coating says it will be used up with the next swing, but doesn't specify what kind of swing it can be used with. The only specific exception seems to be Slay. Does Vorpal damage add to damaging spell/elemental/arcane strikes that characters can swing?

    Render Improved on Armor

    The current text of Render Indestructible Improved says: Which is similar to, but not quite the same as, the text in Shatter that says how it works on indestructible armor types. The implication in the scroll text seems to be that Shatter does nothing, with the additional text just clarifying...

    Potency + Enhance Signature Spell

    Based on https://alliancelarp.com/forum/threads/alliance-2-0-prerelease.39024/#post-307276, potency appears to boost spell level by 1. How does this interact with Enhance Signature Spell, which doubles damage? It seems like ESS should work the same way in the sense that if I double a "10 Spell...

    Eternal Resolution aspect

    Eternal Resolution says the user can call X Elemental Healing or X Elemental Chaos, but it doesn't specifically indicate this is dependent on the aspect it was cast using. Is it intended to be reversible on the fly, or is the element locked in by the aspect?

    Casting Workplace of Convenience

    How does one actually cast a Workplace of Convenience ritual? Given that workplaces typically aren't repped and are ambiguous large things that generally exist in a vague region of IG-space, it's not entirely clear how one puts a circle around such a thing. My guess would be either the entire...

    Merchants Guild Publications

    There is a bulletin board posting in Deepjug's Tavern titled "Crafting Plans and You". Do you read it? The posting mentions a "Crafting Catalogue". Looking around, you spy it nearby. Do you read it? Finally, a notice is posted: The Merchants Guild has begun discovering tomes of lost crafting...

    LCO Crafting Abilities

    As mentioned in the in-game forums, some tomes with new LCO abilities exist in-game. The tomes grant abilities up to your applicable skill level after reading them for 10 minutes. There is currently no special battleboard annotation or tag associated with having these abilities, so honor system...

This process cleanses necromantic herbs that the Guild has collected of the taint they...

    Oak of the Archmage spell strike options

    Does the expended Signature Spell have to match the aspect of the Oak element selection? That is, if I select Healing, I can't Spell Strike an Ice Bolt from memory? Does the expended Signature Spell's element have to match the Oak element selection? That is, if I select Fire, I can't Spell...

    New ritual aspect clarifications

    Spell Swap: Right now, it appears that if you place this on a spell book with both Earth and Celestial spells written in it, you can swap spells in either of your pyramids (with spells from the correct pyramid, of course). This is convenient the way it is, but was the swap intended to be limited...

    [.11] Blocking "Spell" arrows

    Splitting off conversation from https://alliancelarp.com/forum/threads/denver-november-16-18-thoughts-and-musings.38721/#post-302538 I suspect that last bit was either from an older packet or intended to say "Spell Strike", since if "Spell" by itself is equivalent to "Spell Strike" then we...

    Cure for the "Black Blood" Disease

    I have news for those in and around the lands of Acarthia regarding the plague that began afflicting thousands who had been influenced by the Outsider known as Umbrasil. As you may know, normal curatives stave off death for a time but do not cure it. We at the New Acarthia chapter of the...

    [.11] Disease vs Unconscious

    Disease doesn't prevent First Aid from setting body to 0 (via explicit exception), but does it prevent a character with 0 body from returning to 1 body after a minute? Do they simply remain unconscious until the disease wears off?
