Poison question

Post by LordTyrantCort » 2013-05-06

Poison
Some character types have the ability to make poison; 
any character type may administer poison.
Poisons may be used in all adventure situations as well 
as Land Wars. 


I believe that the part about land wars are supposed to be "Land Searches" am I wrong?

What is the intent of allowing poisons and not scrolls and potions. Or did I miss this senate?

Just wondering

to my knowledge

poisions can be used in land wars because that is the way its written

John has stated in 1992 it was changed to not allow it but I do not yet see that in print anywhere

last year the president and I this year as magistrate have made a ruling that anytime that poisions are allowed then by default all spells and abilities that would protect against or remove poision is then also allowed and legal to be used even if it is a adventure only spell or ability normally

if for some reason I am wrong in my interpretation of how things are now please let me know but as of now this is my understanding

thank you,
magistrate 2013

I would like to see all abilities that aren't problematic for wars & normal battles (pouch/prayer touch/magic stone, gaseous, growth, curse, assassinate, animate dead, sanctuary, disguise...maybe one or two others) be made normal battle abilities. Who cares if I can cast Light, Cure Disease, or Commune With Nature?

However, all ITEMS that you can only create on Adventure days should be Adventure-only.

Cort,

If it is a mistake it has been in there since 2008. That is 5 years of use and while it may be wrong (because no one I know ever saw it in Senate) it is what it is.

In 1993 it was removed from Land War use when Hobbit of Mordom poisoned every arrow used in a boat battle and decimated the opposition. Even a light wound was instant death.

Since you can now cast "neutralize poison" to protect yourself from poison, it's not as much of a balance issue anymore (unless you don't cast it, and that's on you).

Going over my notes I never received word from the 2012 Magistrate if the Senate approved the clarification on Neutralize Poison use.

The 2013 Magistrate has already extended the ruling so hopefully it will be in the July 2013 rulebook.
