Re: Typos and other blunders in ASOBH pdf

For the Fragile trait (p3), I'd suggest changing "fragile" to "brittle" in the first line of the description: Fragile The model is made of bones, crystals or other hard but fragile substance . Crushing attacks (Bludgeon, Ball-and-Chain, Earthquake Maul, Flail, Flying Hammer, Heav...

Re: what is Norindaal?

I entirely agree! I think the "kitchen sink" approach is vital - unless you plan to put in decades of work and hope that you end up with a Glorantha or a Middle Earth! And I think an important point is that a fantasy gaming world should have many more species than a literary one: tabletop ...

A couple of thoughts on the lizardman roster

The lizardman roster looks good, especially the different grades of lizardman, which should allow players to fit the various models in their collections in easily (I have lizardmen ranging from about human child size to ogre size). I note that the "classic" SoBH lizardman is now a "ve...

Re: weapon interaction

One question: how does Unerring Aim interact with the weapon-specific range modifiers for Crossbow, Long Bow, etc? Does a longbowman with Unerring Aim fire at +1, +0, -1, for example, with the trait affecting only the three-stick modifier (the only one that can be halved)? Also, with missile weapons...

Re: what is Norindaal?

I think it would be good to have something to that effect in the text - though it leaves me wondering what the "hob-" element of the slur means. (As an aside, etymologically - in the real world - it's probably a diminutive of "Robin", as in Robin Goodfellow; the discovery of this...

Re: what is Norindaal?

One thought on the hobgoblin text, both on the Norindaal wiki and in the Hammer and Forge book: it's a little odd that there's nothing to link hobgoblins to goblins. Why are they thus named? Are hobgoblins some god's attempt to improve goblin stock? Are they in fact unrelated but superficially simil...

Battle Reports

I noticed that there wasn't a thread for these. We (the kids and I) played a three-way ASOBH game yesterday afternoon - a "steal the treasure from the guardians" affair, with Medusa and skeletal followers guarding a treasure chest in a ruined temple that bands of ratmen, lizardmen and gobl...

Re: Typos and other blunders

"Arquebus The model is armed with an arquebus or similar musket-type firearm. The arquebusier may fire a ranged attack at +2 over Long Range, at +1 over 2 x Long, and at no modifier over 3 x Long. These modifiers include a +2 bonus for the weapon's accuracy and a halving of the range modifiers....

Re: Typos and other blunders

Page 12: "Right after the players have deployed their forces, roll two dice and draw an imaginary line from the lower scoring die to the higher scoring die. That line shows the direction of the wind, which will remain unchanged until the end of the game." ' "lower-scoring" "...

Re: Typos and other blunders

Page 8: "Thumas Ven is also responsible for another turning event in Miners history. Like his father before him, he was a dragonslayer, and killed Wisath the Red Fury, the last of the great Red Dragons. But Thumas had discovered that drinking a concoction based on dragon eggs kept him free of d...
