Re: (TFT) Greetings TFT'ers After a long haitus: Questions: Clerics/Priests, scrolls, components, runescience?
1) What do you guys do for a heal spell?
In TFT, we had no heal spells. Healing potions only.
When I adapted my TFT campaign to GURPS, some people knew the GURPS Magic
healing spells, but those are massively effective, so I added an expensive
ingredient requirement (somewhat cheaper than a TFT healing potion) and
also a side-effect rich critical failure table, so it was risky to use.
2) Spell component list? When you get a wizard who
wants to send you out for components he needs for his
spells potions etc... I remember a really long list
but I lost it.
In TFT we didn't embellish this much beyond what's in AW.
3)Cost for purchasing a scroll at low level was about
300 gold... How do you make a scroll? is it worth the
Scrolls didn't get used unless there was a reason to use one, which wasn't
often. I don't remember it being 300 gold for a simple scroll though - 300
4)I have a magic system called Runes Science that came
from an old game called Melanda back in 1981-2. ...
How would you guys implement that in TFT
Either I wouldn't use it, or might use the system as is, for wizards who
learn a new talent for it (say at least IQ 11, 3 points, prereq: literacy).
Thing is, it doesn't take into account TFT attributes, but maybe that's
interesting. If I didn't want to use percentile dice, I might map the
percentages to the 3-die probabilities, and/or make it an IQ roll starting
at 6 dice, minus one die per year of study, minimum 3 dice, maybe with a +1
to Adj.IQ per so many uses (50?), or something like that.
5)Clerics/Priests, What do you guys do with them?
In our TFT games, mainly they were social leaders/workers and didn't see a
lot of use outside that. No "clergy are a variety of wizard" stuff. In
GURPS, I had some who had certain magic spells as part of their discipline,
on a per-sect basis.
