Re: Reviews and opinions of WFRP 4e adventures

I spent a couple of hours the other night trying to say basically what Robin has said, only they said it much better than I! I'd even go further and argue that I don't think the term 'railroad' really has that much value when discussing adventure modules; and also that every scenario ever written ne...

Archaon?

Can't deny his martial prowess, and he looses the odd fireball too.

But I think Loremasters of Hoeth are the better answer!

Re: Combat example

i'm fully expecting the GM book to mostly be fluff about considering the PCs better ad a few tables for random plot seeds. Are we expecting a GM book? Sorry, I don't keep up with the news and wasn't expecting one (1e and 2e didn't i believe, and 3e maybe?) FWIW, My group and I are enjoying 4e with ...

Re: If looks could kill

Small > Average > Large > Enormous. Enormous is two steps larger than average, therefore x2 damage, unless I'm missing something? But yes, did underplay the basilisk. Though the PC's were spread out enough it couldn't engage with more than two at a time anyway, so couldn't have used deathblow for mo...

Re: If looks could kill

I think you're probably right, but with 3x damage (pg341) it could easily kill with a single blow, especially those without a good Dodge (don't forget that characters will suffer -2 SL when defending using melee). 2x damage? (pg 341) Which is still heaps. Regardless, my players took it down no prob...

Re: If looks could kill

Ah, I had missed the melee skill of 45. That makes it much more dangerous!! I wonder if my group will run away from it once they see it chomp one of the brigands in half.

Re: If looks could kill

Halfway through it at the moment - enjoying the opportunity to ham up some Strigany accents! ;) I got a bit caught out by the attack by the Stirpike - I didnt realise at first, but if I'm understanding it properly it can't make normal attacks - it has no 'weapon' trait. Either that or it only adds i...

Re: Starter set

Yeah I have bought it, and at first wasn't too impressed, but having now read through the adventures, I think it is a good kit. I haven't done the maths to check, but I think the pre-gens start at an increased level of experience? If not, I am surprised at the level of some of their skills! Some of ...
