Sounding pretty good! How do you propose to handle durational effects? Charms, curses, potions, poisons, someone on fire, someone encased in ice, etcetera?

Good question.

Creatures afflicted by conditions with non-permanent durations will be entitled to some kind of roll or skill check at the start of their turn in order to shake them off. Most conditions will give the afflicted a bonus on the roll based on the number of times they've failed it, ensuring that characters don't stay (poisoned, on fire, stunned) forever, etc.

For example, a character on fire gets to roll a d6 at the start of his turn, and gains a +1 bonus on the roll for each time he's failed it since he's been on fire. If the roll is 6 or higher, he's no longer on fire.

I like the FAQ. Will there be drow?
At release: probably not - we'll be releasing with the basics (human, elf, dwarf, hobbit, etc.) After release? Absolutely. Given the incredible popularity of "dark elf" races, it'd probably be one of the very earliest race expansions.

Abandoned Arts - when do we start? Do I need to register at paizo.com? How often would I need to post?

P.S. Count me in as a high elf rogue/warrior hybrid.

When the design process is actually finished. I'm working hard at being able to produce an "example of play," and then a proper playtest. Keep an eye on this thread (or on the Paizo forums thread), and participate (or just bombard me with questions) as much as you can. Keep interest high and keep these discussions alive!

You will not need to register on the Paizo forums, or any other. Once development is complete, this would be a free-for-everyone PDF manual that you could pick up at OneBookshelf, DriveThruRPG, or the Paizo webstore (or by e-mailing me for a copy).

Good to know.
