Re: Adapting Age of Reckoning to WHFRP

the story, while not great, was never the main stumbling block. AoR's class balance is- at best, mind- terrible and openly against how many of the mentioned classes work in canon. if you discard the nonsense around classes and the MMO weapon stuff, it shouldn't be a problem to adapt the lesser quest...

Re: Slayers

It's well discussed in william king's "Trollslayer" (or really, in most of the slayer books, but they let gotrek lecture about in in the first one) and in the old but still gold standard "Dwarfs - Stone and Steel" if you can find a copy to read. The general gist of it is this: dw...

Re: Offensive melee talents stacking

because dirty fighting's bonus can only be employed when doing damage, and striking to stun can only be employed when opting to not do damage, i would assume they're mutually exclusive as you would not be striking to stun when you use dirty fighting. addationally, dual-wielding would only apply the ...

Re: Warhammer: The Old World

given we know the new games workshop game will be centered sometime during the three emperors period which is hundreds of years before the current warhammer fantasy RPG, i'd assume this is a period book.

Re: Self-made Adventure I'd Like Thoughts On

the bits of the adventure where the players have something to do are generally organized as though you, the writer, are telling them directly and understand what's going on. regardless of that being true, the adventure will be read by the person running the adventure who then has to explain what you...

Re: Self-made Adventure I'd Like Thoughts On

this adventure is groaningly stupid. that's not criticism, i'm just observing the goal set for the adventure is met. far more importantly (and less smugly), the adventure is at no point written with proper direction for the GM to execute the scenes. you clearly know what your goal is (and i'm making...

Re: Stevedore - Dirty Fighting but no Melee (Brawling)?

don't forget guys, talents give a +1SL on any tests involving them (in this case melee brawling) for each level of the talent, so the bonus is pretty reasonable even without having it as a class skill (and really, do you think stevedores are spending their pay on formal boxing lessons to top off the...

Re: Surprised opponents take less damage

well it's not khaine... the only ideas i have is that it's 1: probably from some other fiction he's jamming in for the story or 2: a play on the king in yellow. maybe sneak a peek at what he's been reading recently, get an idea what he's aiming for. also i'm betting there's some "clever" t...

Re: The Red King

while there is an old story of taal and ulric fighting the chaos gods (and most of the other gods helping to various degrees, i'm not sure who this "red king" is. maybe your GM's alluding to khaine's human cult?

Re: Flying combat

Oh, okay. that's easy enough, there's not really Rules specifically for flying so if the puppet can fly then it just needs to be faster than the elf's spell or start in a position it can intercept. Depending on how you want to read it, the Entangled condition caused by grappling may make the elf fal...

Re: Flying combat

give the limited rules regarding movement, why bother with a flying enemy when you could give a couple enemies slings which inflict stun. since stun precludes the ability to take actions and you are required to take a flght action on your turn not to fall out of the sky. if you're worried you'll kil...

Wow, this thread is huge and is a gold mine of competent analysis and experinces about 4th edition.

Re: Winds of Magic

the new text looks to just be shorthand for the effects in the old text, and says nothing about if it's consumed or not. in this case i would refer back to the main rulebook for clarification, which means yes it's still consumed.

I was a bit more worried that the the maps would be so detailed and officially described that there wouldn't be much space for inserting new elements into the setting. I like crossovers but I don't want to mess with official lore to much or usurp the main roles in the setting and lore with new stuf...
