considering the description of Talents, "Warfare" instead of "Siegecraft" is much better name for the skill, as suggested by Derek Hand at G+.

p. 92 Sorcerer: "the character’s resolve permanently by 0+[CD]2." shouldn't be 0+2[CD]? What is the meaning of 0+?

2 [CD] would mean 0-4 permanent resolve loss. Is this right?

@Allen, I didn't understood that rule, but with your question, it now make sense!

They shouldn't stack - Resilient applies to things like being knocked prone or becoming staggered as a result of the Knockdown and Stun weapon qualities.

I still agree that Conan is not about making lots of stuff, but having now read through the Sorcery chapter and the talisman and powders rules, it seems that it is okay to make tactical and story-related stuff.

A broad skill to represent general practice handiness is good, but I think that there is a place for focusing the craft on individual crafts/materials and making the Talents more generically useful. A craft-savy character could customising weapons or armour and add qualities, scavenge materials to make a missile weapon load, make traps, know people in the trade, fix/break mechanisms, make a fake copy, etc.

Just as sorcerers make things that are tactically useful, so too can characters with a craft.

Oh and Barricade is still weird.

Yes. That barricade thing among armor craft talents is awful....
Please, make Craft talents more rational and more specific!

It would be pretty cool if Craft was more like Alchemy.

LucaCherstich said Jul 20, 2016 13:00:06
And proper treatment of Craft would also make more sense.
I see many more PCs in a Conan game due to their background stories having varieties of the Craft talents than People with Alchemy.
There are many reasons why a PC should have specific talents regarding crafting weapons, armors, buildings,boats, etc.
Mixing things and Making a Mason requiring to be first an armorsmith is simply senseless.

Since the Sorcery talent Study is the same as Master of Formulae, it it safe to assume that MoF cannot be taken with just the Sorcerer talent anymore? Otherwise what is the point of Study?

@Drew - I noticed that too. I'm still a bit confused as to the hierarchy of Sorcery/Alchemy Talents.

P.88 Siegecraft Talent Tree: The entry 'Arillerist' should read 'Artillerist'.
