Assasin and rogue armor

Post by doomed_bishop »

I just have some difficulities to understand when apply the penality because they use armor or shield.

So, for assassin

Case target = The ability is not affected by wearing armor not on the assassin's amor list

Question : Does it has a penality for helm and shield

Climb = Nothing is written

Question : Does it has a penality when wiedling armor, helm, shield or both

Death attack = Nothing is written

Question : Does it has a penality when wiedling armor, helm, shield or both + if yes, on witch check

Disguise = Nothing is written

Question : Does it has a penality when wiedling armor, helm, shield or both

Hide = This ability is affeted by wearing armor not on the armor list for the assassin

Question : Is that include shield and armor

Poisons : Nothing written

Question : Does it has a penality when wiedling armor, helm, shield or both

Sneak attack : This ability is affeted by wearing armor not on the armor list for the assassin

Question : Does this apply when wearing shield and helm + wicht check is penalyse

Trap : Locating traps is not affected by the armor worn, however, disabling and setting traps is affected by wearing armor not on the armor list

Question : When affected and not, do they include shield and helm

Helmets never affect an ability unless it makes sense for it to, like for a Listen check. Shield use would affect anything that incorporates needing the phalanges... so, trap setting or removing, picking pockets, climbing, etc... anything you need your hands to do would be interfered with if you have a huge shield in the way.

Common sense.

This is self evident. When it says 'not affected' it means not affected.

Page 14, 3rd printing, 2nd column, top of the page under Special.

Read that section. It explains everything.

It explains much the same thing on page 16 (column 1) under the "Special" heading in the Assassin section
