Earthdawn 4E: Rules Variant 25 - Updates Part 14: Warrior

This is the twenty-fifth Rules Variant, part of an ongoing series about Earthdawn Fourth Edition. Introduction and Index.

Everything contained here is the work of a fan and not associated with FASA Games.

This is part of a significant update to better align things with lessons learned and best practices. The primary focus is updating various effects to static Difficulty Numbers, but this is not where it stops and it includes abilities outside that scope which require some attention.

This Discipline has some talents shuffled around, Disarm and Swift Kick cut, and Vengeful Flames and Zephyr Guard added. The purpose behind the changes was to be more in-line with the other alterations and take advantage of new talents.

Refer to the previous update on Talents and Skills for changes to the following talents:
  • Earth Skin
  • Momentum Attack
  • Rally
  • Stone Skin
  • Temper Flesh
