Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

PS There are two main reasons why I'd rather avoid Negative Levels. 1 They are used, generally, to portray a very specific thing in the game. 2. While simpler to handle at the moment (here, take 1 Negative level), I think they are a hassle to handle in the long run, especially if affecting the playe...

Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

But, on the original proposition its not similar, its worst, the victim suffers from similar penalties but can't be avoided (no ST allowed), can't use any spell (instead of just one of his higher level ones), plus can's recover HP and, unless he stays out of activity, suffers damage. Using Energy D...

I think in AD&D it was a 7th level spell, it drained one level only with no save.

Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

How about making it generate Energy Drain on the victim for 1 level per day for a number of days equal to the caster level with a Spell ST modified by CON to prevent the Energy Loss for that day? May 2nd option: If caster level is greater than victim's HD/Level by 4 he inflicts a lethal disease (ST...

Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

I like a flat effect that can be used against anything without doing anything to count or keep up with constitution, especially for those foes that don't have an official CON score. Me too, that's why I came up with the second version. The first one I wrote after re-reading the paragraph on Constit...

Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

Hi I can see how bean-counting Constitution points for NPCs may not look appealing, so here is another take: Cure disease cures all diseases that the subject is suffering from. The spell also kills parasites afflicting the target creature. Certain special diseases may not be countered by this spell ...

Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

So, what do you think? Cure disease cures all diseases that the subject is suffering from. The spell also kills parasites afflicting the target creature. Certain special diseases may not be countered by this spell or may be countered only by a caster of a certain level or higher. Note: This spell do...

Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

I'll clarify... either we need to write a description for that spell, or remove the star. Anyone wanting to contribute the text of Cause Disease can do so here; when we have it edited into shape, I'll incorporate it into the R108 document I'm working on now. I'll post the expanded spell description...
