    I compiled a list of major differences between Fourth Edition and Magic Sword.

    • The number of healing surges the heroes posses will be reduced, and monsters will deal more damage at higher levels.
    • Weapons and armour will be simplified.
    • Most classes will be flexible enough to fill at least two different roles, depending on build.
    • Flanking will be easier to achieve, and Combat Advantage will mean more.
    • Mechanics will be streamlined and refined wherever possible.
    • The GM will be given greater control whenever possible.
    • The implied setting will now draw mainly from Celtic, Irish, Welsh, and Scottish folklore (since I'm a nerd for that).
    • The way races effect characters will be completely changed, and will now be more flexible.
    • Alignments will be completely removed.
    • Many mechanics will be renamed, for both legal and thematic reasons.
    • Non-combat challenges will receive greater emphasis, and will now be given almost as much attention as combat.


    How does this sound?

    Found Imageshack. Just a question. Once you get my Dwarf Fighter on this thread, can you please save it to your computer and inform me so I can take it from Imageshack.

    The image seems to be broken.

    Can anyone see this? If so, could Chainsaw Hobbit save it to his disk drive and inform me, so I can take it from DeviantArt?

    Why can't anyone see it? Should I be using a different site? What is the problem? In the absence of help, please go to this website: http://gligarman2.deviantart.com/#/d56mt5h


    (The absence of background was required.)

    So, what do my boss and fellow artists think?

    I LOVE your coloring style. I LOVEITLOVELOVEIT. Th eyes are very nice, too. And the way the shield sits on the body is very natural.


    I would suggest using a ruler to keep your lines straight. Also, maybe [ractice drawing hands. Hands, hands hands. Fill a whole sheet of paper with sketches of your hand. Also, you might want to make the hammer slightly larger.


    All in all, this is pretty solid!

    Alright. I can see it. I have saved it on to my computer.

    Its a very nice first draft. The lines could be more straight, the colouring could be made a bit more elaborate, and the lines could be thicker. The design, however, is very solid. Keep up the good work!

    I dabble in drawing myself, and after I practice a bit more, I might post some drawings of my own.

    Should I elaborate, or continue onto that Nephilim Wizard?

    Is it okay if I just clean it up a bit and add highlights and change around some color? I can't make it much more straight due to the shape of my tablet, and I can't make the lines thicker due to the quirks in photoshop. Is this alright? Any more changes? Thanks for the gainful employment!

    Something I really feel should be advanced in Magic Sword is the elimination of damage dice for monsters.

    Instead, monsters should just deal averaged damage like minions, and double damage on a critical hit.

    This would speed up play significantly, while making it easier and faster to put monsters together (you don't have to do the averaging math for each set of damage dice used).

    Changing around the colours and cleaning it up would be a start, and I obviously can't make you do anything, but it really would be nice if the picture was re-constructed. I understand that you are having technical difficulties, so I don't expect you to make the changes soon, but I would rather have quality than quantity.

    Sir, you are my boss. I respect you in your endeavors. I will continue my work once you specify what "re-construct" means. It is quite the ambiguous term. What you need, I'll do. This is OUR project. Elf's, mine, yours.

    I have finished the first draft of the Human, complete with powers, feats, and fluff.

    Please skim it and tell me what you think.

    The lines need to be more strait, thick and dark. The hammer seems a bit small, the legs could use forshortning, the nose could be made more square, the armour and skin could be darkened, and the entire body needs to be given depth.

    Hi, I really appreciate your feedback. This time I based the hammer off a swiss hammer from the 15th century. Is this revised version alright?

    At this link:http://gligarman2.deviantart.com/#/d56zyg1

    Please save this to your disk drive and inform me. That way I can delete it from DeviantART and get cracking on the wizard. What do you think?

    Could you please remove the symbols and aura from the shield?

    Wait, aura. That was just light bouncing off. Not to oppose your descision, but why the symbols.

    Ah. Okay. Keep the aura.

    I want you to remove the symbols because I think they distract from the dwarf herself.
