Quote from: Ian O'RourkeThat was very interesting - though you lost me with some of the ME stuff later on :)The differences between the central fellowship were very interesting, specifically the concept that a character may lower ratings in certain actual abilities - but compensated for by ratings in relationships, destinies and the like. Interesting indeed. I realise this is the point of Hero Wars, but I sometimes don't see it through far enough.And if I'm not pushing the issue, then the players, who are less familiar (though I think they will transfer with minimum fuss) are not going to instantly grasp it.
QuoteA few questions do arise though - how do you begin even to get a feel for how you've guessed at those values? I realise a lot of it comes from actual play, but initially some of it must be imparted by the rulebook and I don't overly see it? The use of 3M, where does that come from?
QuoteAlso, since I'd be using Hero Wars sans Glorantha, I was wondering what effects a less magic soaked setting would have on the system - as the system assumes a certain amount of augmentation due to magical feats and the like? What if these cannot be assumed for the most part and the only augmentations come from relationships, etc?
Quote from: Ian O'RourkeI suppose I'm having trouble mapping such heroic figures to the system because I find it hard to imagine the odds, presentation of those stats in actual play.
