User Summary: The second edition of the Ironclaw rpg. List of changes from the introduction: Fewer Skills, more Gifts. Everything else is a Gift. Lower starting abilities. You now start with 2d8, 3d6, and d4. You only start with 13 Marks to put in Skills, with a maximum of 3 Marks in any one Skill. If that bothers your group check out the Variant Rules for ideas on starting with more power.
Flat Costs. Skill Marks cost 4 experience, all Gifts cost 10 experience. All Gifts have the same cost, but many have requirements. Everyone starts the game with the same number of Gifts and Skill Marks Bonuses and Penalties are more dice. A bonus for you is another die to roll. A penalty for you is a bonus die to the other side.
No more bumping up die sizes, no more re-rolls. Exhaustions and Refreshes. Some Gifts grant abilities you can use any time you want. Faster Combat. Characters take their turns in the most logical order, and everyone gets two actions to do. Recovering from Reeling is one action so getting hit only makes you lose half your turn, not your whole turn. The standard melee defense is now the Counter Attack: two combatants dice off, the winner hits the loser Your attack roll is also your damage roll.
Each weapon adds bonus damage to that. You still roll Soak dice, but now you count 4s or better as -1 point of damage, each. All Magic is handled by Gifts. There are no more Magic Points. Many magic spells are weapons that are readied, thrown, then readied again.
You can exchange Marks and Gifts for experience points, to change your character.

JoJojas The fluff describes why sorcerers are so rare: Characters take their turns in the most logical order, and everyone gets two actions to do. I like the idea of grabbing a bunch of dice of different sizes from different appropriate places and generating some kind of result. Like new with only the slightest wear, many times indistinguishable from a Mint item. On Order — Availability Unknown. So, is Ironclaw any good? But if you have gotten accustomed to the rapid narration and story progression that follows conflict resolution rather than task resolution, like I have, you will pull your hair in frustration. Each weapon adds bonus damage to that.
