I swear I saw it, but now I can't find it, so unless I come back with an "AHa" post about it, consider it the product of an overworked, under slept brain. Apologies.I don't see this under the Alchemy description, actually. Can you point to the page number for this, please?
To me, there is a base level of consent universally given as standard by playing the game. Some examples of that is being that you agree to be indirectly touched with things like boffers and packets, and also agree to be lightly and directly touched for things like Healing Arts, Picking up incapacitated characters, First Aid, and the like in order to keep the game flowing smoothly."A player who is being given First Aid and does not wish to have body contact must tell the player with the First Aid skill."
Why is the onus on a person who wants to not be touched rather than a person who is about to touch someone else? This new rule book is an opportunity to introduce better consent nationally, such as by stating a player should ask permission before touching others. If consent is assumed until refused, like it is here, it's likely the First Aid skill user will have touched their target before the target has the opportunity to announce their refusal.
The recipient chooses a single type of blade when the spell is cast on them and announces the total damage of their weapon swings while saying “” as their weapon carrier instead of “normal,” “silver,” or whatever they might otherwise call. They are not required to use the temporary carrier on every weapon swing. Available choices are limited to: Magic, Ice, Flame, Lightning, or Stone. It may be used on any weapon, even bows or crossbows. The caster chooses which element the spell will grant at the time of casting.
The above quote is from the pre-release packet v0.12b concerning the unique meditation rules for signature spells. I was not able to find reference to this anywhere in the beta ARB.When a Signature Spell is cast from memory (meaning not from a Magic Item or the Flexible Casting skill, and not used via another skill such as Magistarium Strike), if it hits a target but triggers a Guard, Return, or No Effect defense, the spell may be subsequently Meditated back as though it had missed.
This picture is a prime example of photo quality and lighting making all the difference. Being the same model and being indoors and as such less environmental messing with their makeup. This picture is the popular DE picture choice and it is such for a reason, its amazing. The picture looks professional, polished, and a good resolution.I'm attaching another picture of him. This is easily my favorite dark elf photo period.
