Thanks! Is this a recent change, or have I always misunderstood Ingenew to be a red smith?April 20, 2014 at 10:42 pm #7612
My Praxian campaign had a brief stopover there. About all that I can remember was that they had to deal with sentient quicksand (it could follow them around) and there was a fountain of glass with a water elemental living it that they wound up negotiating with. I seem to remember having gotten those ideas from some ancient post about Sandy Petersen’s campaign, so I can’t really claim them as my own ideas.April 20, 2014 at 10:39 pm #7611
I take your point about the Moorcockian approach to Law v Chaos, but S:KOH does say that, at least in the West, Law and Chaos are seen that way, as opposing polarities and therefore as Power Runes, so I was wondering if it had that application elsewhere. Law isn’t a very ‘developed’ rune (there isn’t a lot of material that really explores it, as opposed to, for example, the Earth Rune), so it can be hard to get a real grasp on it. But thinking of it as the rune for Sorcery makes sense. Thanks.April 20, 2014 at 4:05 pm #7602
I’ve always assumed that the Praxians used something equivalent to tobacco in their rituals, both as incense and as something smoked.April 20, 2014 at 3:00 pm #7601
Ok, thanks! That basically answers 1 and 2. What about 3. Am I right that an LM casts wizardry with his Law Rune rather than having a separate rating for his spells?
Can the Law Rune be used for anything other than spell-casting? In the write-up, it doesn’t seem like it, but wouldn’t something like Lawspeaking fall under that heading? Or am I taking too literal a notion of Law here? Could it be used for anti-chaos things?
On a side note, as a medievalist, I heartily approve of using Ramon Lull for inspiration.
