So, with Solo Heart of Fury runs being kind of crazy now, I decided to try something different: a party of 6 different specialist mages, with the following rules:
- A no-reload campaign set to Core Rules and no Max HP on level
- Initial spells must be chosen from the mage's specialist school. All scrolls acquired thereafter must be given to the party member who specializes in that school
- No purposefully farming XP
Obviously, some of the challenges are going to come from the lack of scrolls available and having 6 mages battle for the few items that are usable by mages.
Since we can only cover 6 schools, I have to go without 2 of them. Diviner seems an obvious choice, but what other school should I forego? That question might be better answered by answering another first, that being:
- Once a specialist mage has scribed a particular scroll, should I allow any of the other mages to scribe additional copies? With the -15% chance that comes with learning a non-specialist spell and the restriction to Core rules at all times, there is no guarantee this will be easy.
