    Laws for ed usage

    Often, I will use ed incorrectly at the end of a word or not using it at all. I have made attempts to google the rule, but ed gets a lot of result that do not relate to English. Can anyone suggestion a few simply tips and rules that relate to the correct use of eds. Such as Ended or End. I think it has mostly to do with tense.

    This sentence is the motivation for my question. It has me a little confused with the usage of ed.

    "Entice as he may be, he would not dare strike until his prey is closer."

    I was told "Entice" here should be given a ed and be "Enticed". I am just unsure why.
