I’m working on a project concerning hirelings, so I’ve been throwing all kinds of hirelings towards my son in our 1-on-1 game. He had never used an Adept, because he was using hirelings to fill the roles his Wizard couldn’t. My adult players had never even used hirelings until I started my project, and when they finally did they didn’t use an Adept either because they didn’t have a spellcaster to take advantage of Arcane Assistance.
So in play-testing last night I had a Wizard and an Adept (plus a Druid and Fighter) in the party. An Adept has the Arcane Assistance move which aids spellcasting to give the spell’s effects greater range, duration or potency. The question that came up last night was “If Tendil (the Adept) aids Cedric (the Wizard) with an Invisibility spell can they make everyone invisible?”
Invisibility requires the Wizard to touch an ally to make that ally invisible (I had to look it up). So I told them “Sure, if everyone stands in a circle holding hands with the Wizard casting and the Adept aiding then they can all get Invisibility, but if one person loses it they all do because the magic is broken.”
So they did it (rolled a 7 and chose to forget the spell), sneaked past a BUNCH of Orcs, and Regnar (the Fighter) assassinated the Orc Warchief by decapitation.
ALL of that just to ask how you all have use an Adept to aid a Wizard in your games LOL! Also, do you think allowing the entire party to go invisible too powerful?
