    Age Manipulation: Can this be done?

    griffin - - SHARD Magic

    Post

    The Fabric of Illusion can effect the senses of Sight, Hearing and Smell but not touch... So with the clever use of the Disguise skill combined with this Magic many more things would be able to be accomplished because in essence a player could use one or the other to increase the effectiveness of the overall disguise, thereby making it much more difficult to detect ( all of this is assuming that the rolls of the dice are in the favor of the player wishing to use the Disguise or Fabric of Illusio…

    Good question... In the game of SHARD the concept of sexuality is a matter choice, so there is no definitive answer. ( The makers of SHARD have no negative aversion toward loving relationships in any form what so ever... other than to create situations which produce great fantasy and can be used to address social issues such as slavery, sexuality, the caste system, religion and any other possible societal dynamics in a safe and enjoyable setting)... To elaborate further these things would depend…

    Yes, I can see the way this would inspire you! I should also add that the DREAM in the game is a very mercurial place prone to extremes of wonder and terror so if you do decide to journey there as a child be very very careful to not get lost otherwise it would lead to a situation which may not be very healthy for the character and could even result in the characters body being inhabited by the spirit of another being... similar to being possessed.... this is but one aspect of the dangers to be f…

    Oh I can totally relate to that... It makes complete sense to put each of them on your Christmas wish list, and if you have been exceptionally good this year there is every chance that Santa will bring them... be sure to add the packet of special shard dice and a handy Game master screen to the list as well... These two additional things are relatively inexpensive and will make your life so much easier when playing the game itself.... The dice are custom and in the shape of multi colored shards …

    WOW!!!! There have been an amazing amount of non apex predators used as character types.... let me see if I can recall some of the most notable ones... There has been an Aardvark character who had only one eye played in one of our games by a player named Zoltan he made the character a stand out due to the fact that he also used a rifle and thus suffered from a substantial disadvantage having no depth perception... In the same game there was a Porcupine character who suffered from absentmindednes…

    Okay, well that just means we will have to find a way to perhaps connect you with a group of friends you may be able to play with over your computer using either a video chat or in the same way that the two of us are communicating... then you will be free to have regularly scheduled sessions with your group in which ever forum is the most easily accessible to each of the members of the group.... How does that sound? It is unfortunate that so many people have the stigma that anything anthropomorp…

    I love the idea for a module presented here.... It is whimsical, exciting and captivating all at the same time! There are many different ways that this would be magically possible using ritual magic from the game of SHARD. Each one presents its own strengths and weaknesses while differing in the level of difficulty as well as the to actually achieve the amazing feat. So I will cover these in no particular order and even cover the Rituals which could be used in an indirect way to accomplish essen…

    This is an excellent question and one that sadly with out the most updated information related to the new Animal templates can not answer with absolute certainty.... What I can say is (at the risk of being vague) that there may be some in the latest book with this DRAWBACK but most likely it would be a suggested DRAWBACK as opposed to one that all of the members of a particular animal species are afflicted with. The primary reason this is so..... is so as to, not discourage potential players fro…

    Oh, so what we need to do is work on getting you the books to begin with and after that we can start to actually show those people what they are missing out on! It can be exceedingly difficult to convince people to play a game when you do not have the books because they need something concrete to reference regarding rules, not to mention the fact that for myself the artwork presented in most RPG'S actually does most of the selling for the game itself which is why we have taken extra measures thi…

    This whole thing reminded me of the scene in the GAME OF THRONES were the theater group was making fun of the death of the young king and the queens sorrows! I could easily see these things being done in the world of SHARD, keeping in mind that intrigue would designate you be prepared to deal with any blow back from being associated with the tarnishing of the name of a noble house's reputation or possibly dishonoring them by not making the source of the fantastical material difficult to trace. A…

    Thinking from the direction of combat, this might present some issues if a shot were to be directed towards the exposed breast of that character... which is one of the reasons we choose to make it simple and say that regarding armor that both males and females would be similar in respect to this area of the body...

    Oh, absolutely!!! In the same way that tales like Sinbad and other heroes are popular in many cultures so it would be with the world of SHARD, the stories could include real or fictional characters and extend to a wide range of topics. Including local tales, ghost stories, romantic fantasy, and tales related to all the skills listed in the Basic Compendium, ( in many cases when a skill check is made to determine if a character knows about a skill they may be drawing from both direct knowledge or…

    This sounds like it would be fun for a whimsical adventure, although I could easily see it being given a darker feel as the story was allowed to progress...

    Excellent question, I would answer it in the following way....First of all there is no hard line in the rules determining the number of children possible for a single mother to have in this game, the same as there is great variety in the human world based upon culture and the time period in question... During earlier times in earth's many civilizations the number of children born varied a considerable amount. The same would be true on the world of SHARD. Which leaves us with many options, to cho…

    First of all allow me to apologize for the time it took me to respond to your question, I recently injured my back doing yoga and have been playing catch up every since, AND, I happen to know that both Scott as well as Andrew have been working their collective butts off alongside and with the various artists to get this next book into your hands as soon as humanly possible without sacrificing any of the quality and content.... YOU WILL BE VERY PLEASED TRUST ME!!!!!!! Now to answer your question.…

    I wanted to start this thread to answer any potential questions about Magic Rituals and to have an opportunity to share some of the things which I personally use during the game when in ritual myself. I normally take an approach to magic which mirrors some of the practices from my daily life, so most of my magic rituals begin with cleansing the space the ritual will take place in by using sage, this helps to ensure that no other negative energies are present during the time of the ritual and pre…
