I’ve been GMing a Blue Rose AGE privateer pbp rpg for some months now, and I’m struggling with balancing Adversaries and some types of Arcana.
I’m very combat-oriented in rpgs, so we had several combat encounters in the game so far. It’s been fun so far, and I absolutely love, love the Aldea setting (especially Aldis of course), but lately I’ve been getting occasionally frustrated with trying to do the combat encounters, especially with the Arcana and Sorcery usage. (The Psychic Arcana are very confusing and time consuming for me.)
One major issue I had recently was Cold Shaping (like Frostbite) being able to be spammed, because it had no Fatigue in its entry. (Which I wouldn’t mind for the most part....but the other Shaping Arcana and many other Arcana have Fatigue, which makes it feel a bit unfair to me.)
However, in the table, Cold Shaping has the Fatigue Test as: Test Result.
What does that mean? So if someone rolls a 17 on their Frostbite Test, they then have to roll a Fatigue Test vs that result (of 17)?
