1 HP Thinking new Breakout from skill like "create dust storm" - like he did in the last battle.
1 HP Increase Turn arrow by +1 (since he used that)
?Maybe some special connection to "Lhankor Mhy" after the otherworld battle?

Why don't you call it "Create Dust Devil"? - it's not a full storm, but he can stir up enough to impede a small group.

Increase Turn arrow by +1 - that works.

On the last, how about one of these:
See through the Fog of Ignorance (Truth rune related)
Recognize the Ivory Tower of Knowledge (Truth rune related)
Key to Aid at the Temple of Knowledge (either as separate ability or under the Community: Jonstown Temple relationship keyword)

Or, if you have another thought, feel free to note.

Yeah Dust Devil works

So:
Air Rune
New Breakout "Create Dust Devil" +1
Enhance breakout "Turn Arrow +1" to +2

Community:
Jonstown Temple
New Breakout "Key to Temple of Knowledge"

Work?

I will take Relationship to Kin of Jenyr Lightning as a breakout under Orlmarth Clan at +1

Can I say, it was a close squeak?

Glad to have made it out, thanks.

Hi,

I am struggling with my laptop here at the moment. My old one, with all the data, is broken. After several days, I finally ordered a new laptop, but I am yet to have my old data transferred.

So, I am back online, but I cannot currently access my character sheet. It is good to be back online, but I still have a lot of work ahead of me.

All the best
Phil

Good luck with that!

Also, I don't know if it's up-to-date or not, but you have a version here: Beorht Shortspear

Making good progress with the new laptop, thanks. As with any major change, there are some things I prefer, and others I struggle with.

I must remember to update that online character sheet, it is a very useful resource.

Many thanks
Phil

Thanks guys, for the congratulations.

In regards to the current gameplay situation, would using Truth magic to check some of their words be in poor form or badly perceived?

Also, from a tribal point of view, would we be doing something problematic?

Truth magic would be visible, and probably poorly received.
If he wants to get a better sense without offending, he'd more likely use whatever abilities he has to gauge the situation without magic.

Jonstown is a city where several tribes overlap and have representation. The Colymar tribe, that the Orlmarth clan belongs to, is not one of those, however. Unless he talks to King Kangharl of the Colymar, he's not likely to know whether it would be problematic or not.

Hi Harald (and everyone),

Have been on holiday in Hungary with family for the last week or so. Thought I would have more time to post during baby feeds, etc., but didn't happen. Sorry!

I'm back now, but work backlog and a birthday weekend mean that I probably won't be flooding these forums with new posts for a bit. I will try to make some posts, though.
