Does a rune that doubles your attacks double the +3 attacks you get from a Blade of Leaping Gold or does it just double your Battle Level attacks?

Re: x2Attacks


Ah....a topic I've discussed in some length before, I think everyone has their own interpretation on this one.

As a rule of thumb I apply the double damage rules (RPB page 66) to all modifiers, so apply any multiplications before additions or subtractions.

Blade of Leaping Gold is certainly that I think this applied to (double attacks and then +3). For me the +3 Attacks are purely conditional on the blade being used to attack. If I had a Warrior with ambidextrous and blade of leaping gold for example I would not allow the additional 3 attacks to be used on the other weapon.

I do make the occasional exception though. The ring of power I consider to be a passive characteristic increase, thus affected by modifiers.

Sorry, not black and white answer for you, but I think that's just the way WHQ is.

Re: x2Attacks


that is also the way i run with this and other similar options.

this becomes essential as you get lots of options to add an additional attack from a variety of methods as you advance in levels.

battle potion: +1A
flash powder: +1A
lots of skills:+1A
blessings: +1A
spells: +1A

double all of that?

gets beyond ridiculous, so i double the base and then add the additions on top

most of my posts may run into essay length. I find that for a lot of queries/feedback context is important and that is why this happens more often than not.

have a great day :D

Re: x2Attacks


Thanks for the thoughtful responses. The Ring of Power
makes me think of The Tome of the Dragon. Using the Tome causes it to disintegrate after use while the Ring can be taken off. I would allow the Attack from the Tome
to double but not the Ring. Just as you cannot double the Attacks from the Blade of Leaping Gold because it
is a physical object like the Ring, that can be removed from the Warrior. Unlike the Tome (I hope emoticon )

Re: x2Attacks


don't know what the tome of the dragon is, but if it's a one off consumable how is that different from flash powder?

which can be bought by any dwarf and then multiple used at a time (unless you house rule that it cannot be)

similarly to the battle potion, although purchase is not so easy, and no doubt other options which i am not thinking of at this time.
