You can't do that! It's contrary to the specific levels of immersion and simulationism that I like!

comment Can a PC cast a Floor of force?
@izkata I think we both misread different parts of it. You're right in that it's flat like paper. But it doesn't take up 10'x10' on the battle grid. It takes up 10'x0'x10'... I.e., it is a vertical plane of depth 0', height 10', and width 10'. You'd draw it on the map as a line.

@izkata In this case "flat" means "has no bumps or protrusions on its surface" instead of "is thin like paper."

comment When should I use active defense?
@SteffenSchindler You can also make a character with a high wits. Such a character won't deal out much damage, but will be able to parry effectively (and will be great at social scenes).

Have you read over 7th Sea's initiative rules yet? If so, where are they falling short? It would seem reasonable to switch perspectives every round, with phases/panache giving faster characters more actions per time period.

comment Can a Pyeryem Mage Talk to a Black/Porte Wolf?
@CatLord The wolves have a reasonable Wits score (2), and basic tactics (attack from behind). This suggests they're at least as intelligent as an extremely simple animal, such as a lizard. Personally, I'd also allow Pyeryem mages to speak with them, but twist their motivation enough to make compromise difficult. On the other hand, you could get a lot of mileage out of the "Porte has robbed them of everything, including their voices" angle. Particularly given the antipathy between Porte and Pyeryem.
