An area for outright mechanical issues.


This area is for opinions on the severity and scope of the new system. Please keep comments constructive, as overly negative posts will be removed.


I'm adding an anecdote here since I don't see an appropriate place to put this and the randomization can make it difficult to document statistically reliable information.

I've had one magical inert backlash today, and it lasted 10 minutes. If you find yourself in a magically dependent situation, beware - you lose all ability to use magic, perceive, or any related abilities, and your attunement remain locked at 0% --BEYONDDISBELIEF (talk) 11:11, 12 August 2016 (CDT)

The backlash that makes you unconscious will leave you unconscious for 5 full minutes. WHILE having a Very Bad internal head bleeder and complete paralysis of the body.

Be sure to have enough stamina to survive 5 minutes of v. bad bleeding and being effectively prevented from spellcasting!

Currently, I'm at about 25~35% chance of backlash from RESEARCH SORCERY. --BEYONDDISBELIEF (talk) 13:14, 13 August 2016 (CDT)
