Thief Specialties

Thief Specialties

This is the 2017 – 7.1 playtest rules specialties for Thieves.

During the playtest period, PC characters will be able to play the various specializations without committing their character to that path, and PC characters may temporarily switch to the new Bard class for playtesting. In fact, PCs are encouraged to try the new specializations out and comment on them to the FRC (frc@ifgs.org). Also note that no magic item using new abilities may be created during the playtest period.

New Bluebook

Time for some new toys! 2017 Revised Blue Book_2.13

The Society Board has approved an update to the IFGS Blue Book. The biggest news is that Extreme Enhancements (+4 and +5 bonuses) for weapons and armor are now available as permanent effects. We also have a new game mechanic for learning (and pricing) additional languages.

There have been changes to the resale and trade-in policy to prepare for the new shinies, and, as usual, minor corrections here and there.

Happy looting!

March 2017 Playtest Rules Release

Here is the March 2017 Rules release from the FRC. This release contains the Optional Character Build Rules, the Bard Class, and the specializations for Cleric, Magic User and Rangers. Additional specializations will be released as they become available. Please send any feedback to FRC at IFGS.ORG. There will be a poll sent out towards the end of the season to solicit feedback from players. These rules will not become ‘official’ until the Society Board votes them as version 7.1 at the end of the year.

NOTE on Play Test Rules:
The current Optional Rules, Bard class, Cleric, Magic User, Ranger Specializations are play test only and no magic items may be created using the new abilities. Additionally, during the play testing time frame a PC is not locked into one of the new specializations since they are not ‘official’ yet. In fact, PCs are encouraged to try the different specializations and comment on them to the FRC.
