    I haven’t had anyone play a Heahwisard since the conversion, so I didn’t really consider that.

    I don’t think it would make much of a difference. Heahwisards can cast at -2 in one round, or wait 3 rounds to cast and have no penalties, but remember then can also wait longer and get bonuses to their rolls.

    I’ve found that the usual 5 round limit for non-instant spells are usually plenty. But remember, the wisard can spend another Power Point to maintain the spell for an additional 5 rounds if it is going to expire too soon for their liking.

    Also, outside of combat, this really isn’t a limitation. Taking 20 or more seconds to get a bonus on casting is awesome.

    One thing I would like to do, now that I’m considering Heahwisards, is to create an Edge that allows a Heahwisard to store Power Points in their staff. Maybe like a ritual that takes an hour or four (I don’t know, I’m just thinking out loud) and lets them put 5 Power Points into their staff. Then they could rest, recharge their own points and have a bonus “store” of points to call upon. It would be another cool way to offset their ritualistic penalty and give them something other Spellcasters can’t do.

    I hadn’t really noticed the gear changes. And just reading that section again I realized that Load Limits have changed to a table now. We’ve just been playing with the gear from Hellfrost as is, but it should be a simple matter to adjust the armor bonuses and include minimum strength. I’ll have to take a good look at the changes to weapons too.

    Thanks.

    Ok, Wiggy gave me permission to share my personal SWADE Conversion guide. The guide is in one document and the Spells list with Power Points, new Ranges, and Durations are in another. Note that the Power Point costs for specific Religions should be adjusted where there are limits, such as Boost/Lower Trait affecting only one or two traits as per page 150 of the SWADE core rules.

    Let me know what you think or how it works for your group. We’ve only had one session using these rules, but everyone in the party is a spellcaster, so there were lots cast.

    Likely it will be 2020 before the book is out.

    I read this and thought “I can’t wait two more years!”. Then I realized it’s halfway through 2019. Still living in the past I guess.

    That’s why I asked. I’ll send it promptly.

    Wiggy, that’s awesome news. I’ve finally purchased every Hellfrost product and will gladly purchase them again.

    I just posted a question about sharing my Conversion notes for SWADE with a power points based spell list. With your permission I’ll share it as a stopgap measure until the new version is out.

    Heroic’s should be able to survive this easily. All of the pre-gens are Seasoned, and with the 5 extras it is possible to complete the adventure. I purposefully made it challenging though.

    I would bump up the number of Orcs and Goblins on patrol if vs. Heroic characters.

    Ok, that took me longer than I thought, but here’s the full adventure:

    Let me know if anyone plays it. I had one session with a TPK when the met the Frost Wyrm. In another, I just skipped that encounter so we could get to the end.

    Yup, it’s a home-brew adventure I wrote for our local convention Gotta-Con. I’ve run it four times now and it’s been a blast. I tried to make it a 4 hour game, but it tends to go longer if the random encounters are used.

    It’s a pretty bleak and rainy Saturday here in Victoria. The only thing I don’t have in my write-up is maps, but I’ll see what I can cobble together to share.
