    Another thought provoking episode! Thanks for discussing my query regarding designing some armour-piercing rules for maces and mauls - I did use them in one session and can report that, although they work as designed, the added complexity does take a little more time, and I feel the benefits in realism are not worth extending combat sessions for. Ah well - you called it right!

    I was interested to hear your consensus view that the Master level in the Keeper specialisation is not really worth anything (+d6 to health if a foe dies from Wrath of the Elvhen). Looking at the equivalent powers in the computer games, Replenishment from DA: Awakening lets the mage regain health when they inflict damage through the One with Nature spell (which is equivalent to Wrath of the Elvhen), with a bonus if a foe dies within the range of it. Arlathan's Grace upgrades Wrath of the Elvhen in DA 2 and again allows damage inflicted to heal the mage.

    As a question for a future podcast then, how does the following sound as an alternative house rule?

    Keeper Specialisation

    Master
    : You can tap into the natural cycle of death and rebirth. If you inflict any damage with a Wrath of the Elvhen spell, you regain health equal to half your Magic ability, rounded down. Also, if an enemy dies within the range of an active Wrath of the Elvhen spell, you get back 1d6 Health if you are wounded. In each case, if you are already at full Health, you gain no benefit.



    Keep up the good work!
