Special Rules

Breathe Flame: The dragon may breathe flame over an area as a Combat Action. The flame will cover a cone in front of the dragon, which stretches for its POW in metres. At its furthest extent, the cone is equal to the creature’s POW in width.

Any creature caught in the flame suffers 4D6 fire damage, though on a successful Dodge roll a character may dive for cover to halve this damage and AP counts as normal.

The dragon may only breathe flame once per hour. Further attempts to breathe flame within this time period require the creature to make a Resilience test, with a cumulative –25% penalty for every attempt.

Elemental

The only characteristic that an elemental has is SIZ; all of its derived attributes and skills are based on this.

Elemental Scores

Size of Elemental SIZ Damage Hit Points (=SIZ) Attack (=SIZ x 5) Area of attack (=SIZ /3) MR Dodge  Persistence  Resilience*
Small 3 1D6 3 25% 1m 15m 100 30 100
Medium 9 2D6 9 45% 3m 20m 90 60 100
Large 21 3D6 21 80% 7m 30m 60 80 100
Huge 50 4D6 50 100% 16m 45m 30 100 100

Elementals attack by engulfing their enemies. All opponents within the area of attack are potential targets. Elementals use their Attack percentage, which is equal to their size times five, to hit the target, who then resists using the resistance appropriate to the attack.

*Elementals are immune to disease and poison.

Elemental Type of attack Resistance used Attribute damage
Undines Drown Resilience Hit Points
Shade Fear Persistence Magic Points
Salamander Burning Resilience Hit Points
Gnome Crush Resilience Hit Points
Sylph  Bluster Resilience Hit Points

Shades attack using Fear. When they reduce their opponent’s Magic Point’s total to zero, they literally die of shock.

Other Elemental Abilities

See invisible: Elementals have magical senses that allow them to ‘see’ invisible creatures, such as immaterial spirits. They also gain a +50% when detecting hidden characters.

Almost invisible against the same element: All elementals have the equivalent of a 90% Deception when lying next to an environment of the same element as themselves. For example, undines are nearly invisible when lying in a pool of water and gnomes can curl up and blend into a surrounding rocky area.
