Re: Arcane Colleges of Altdorf - Help me reconcile

The colleges are the only place were you can be lisanced to use magic throughout the empire, but various nobles have the authority to permit a magic user to operate in their lands. These permits.....wouldn't be AS effective at protecting you from witch hunters, but it would allow for smaller schools...

Re: Casting - gestures?

Rules as written, no movent is required in any sense. Regardless of the requirements in lore, the game mechanics treat casting a spell as having the same requirements as blathering- you only need to be able to open your mouth and let nonsense flow out of it. The prone condition does nothing to restr...

Re: Shieldsman Vs riposte

the person initiating the attack is the attacker, and their target is the defender. the attackers using the shield gets no bonus from their shieldsman talent, and (presumably) suffers damage from their target's defense as a result of the riposte talent. the rest of the table is allowed to point and ...

Re: Multiple wizards dispelling or counterspelling

As that's several people working towards a single task that would fall under assistance, page 155. everyone is aiding in the counterspell, but there's still only the one roll.

Re: Memorizing spells

No, you do not in fact have any requirement to learn spells at all (beyond the ones you get as a bonus with the petty magick talent) to become the highest rankign wizard. so you can easily end up with the patriatch of the jade college being an overly enthusiastic animal breeder that believes the can...

Re: Fit Ogres Vs Fat Ogres

i think most of it is that Ao$ isn't fantasy and most/all of the factions are at least partly different from the ones we know. it's reasonable to assume that the maw did not survive, so the ogres aren't as driven to eat. that said, ogres weren't massively fat until 6th ed FWB, so skinnier ogres migh...

Re: A few questions.

okay, so the deal with elves is they CAN learn more than one lore canonically, but they don't get to learn a second lore until they've mastered the first, and so on. which means practically they aren't likely to have multiple lores as a player character unless you're throwing around a LOT of XP.

Re: Old World Medicinals

i think ungents/salves and smokables are both possible (the empire is definately a place that would have yo do opium for your toothache), as well as elixirs of dubious origins. really i think the only diffference between lotions and ungents is thickness.

Re: Sigmar's hammer, Ulric's axe, Verena's sword

I disagree. A term ”warhammer” in the Miracle is a generic term and not the Game Term (definition on page 7) since it’s written with small letters. Warhammer as the 2-Handed weapon is the Game Term. That means any warhammer can be used in that Miracle, one-handed , two handed , mounted or not. Same...

Eh, just get the GM to roll with handling the torture/fire stuff "off-camera" instead of acting it out. i do that all the time to move the game along.

Re: Torture And Burn

it's not explictly required, but the order prefers you risk killing an innocent than let a guilt one go free because of misguided mercy. if you have reason to suspect they're a witch or servent of the dark powers, you should kill them or torture them to prove their innocence. let too many cultists f...

Re: Sigmar's hammer, Ulric's axe, Verena's sword

the invocations do not specifiy that it's listed as the weapon in the equipment list but that it's called that weapon, so a travelling hatchet, woodcutter's axe or Orc's choppa would count as an axe for the purposes of ulric's requirement. similerly, rapiers are considered swords, but a main gauche ...

as you said, it's page 164. the last bullet point states "if you wound an opponent without engaging in an Opposed Test, gain +1 Advantage." both mundane and magical projectiles fall under this rule.

Re: In fighting rules

he is entirely correct, the talent only addresses the optional rules mentioned regarding range, and none of the modifiers enter play elsewhere in the book (in fact they're not even mentioned regarding unarmed combat, meaning you can bareknuckle your way through a pikeline without those rules!)

there is a rule under healing criticals that states a broken bone renders the location unusuable, so the DM can simply deny thatplayer the attemppt to do anything that requires it. i'd also like to point out that excepting wounds, there's no rules preventing chatacteristic from going Below 0, so it'...

1: without a talent that gives you spells, you have no spells. petty spells are learned without a grimore (effectively training exercises, i guesses) and do not need to be consulted over. 2: you automatically get the WP bonus in petty magic spells when you take the talent, as opposed to arcane spell...
