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

The rules for attacking someone unable to defend themselves are (for whatever reason) described in the rules for the Unconcious Condition, which details that the attack automatically hits the location of the attacker's choice At the maximum SLs possible to score . Melee attacks are opposed rolls so ...

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...

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

Wow, this thread is huge and is a gold mine of competent analysis and experinces about 4th edition. The overall idea I maturated about people playing 4th edition is that bascally NO ONE is playing RAW and house-rule the very fondations of the rules or change it up to it be unrecognisable. Is it a s...

Re: Winds of Magic

essentially, there are scrolls with the formulae for casting spells and Scrolls empowered to cast spells. we can assume the concil gave you spells to learn and not scroll to cast to save face with your GM (who should have read that your characters grimore can and should have more than on spell for h...

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.

Re: Questions on this game

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...

i'll dredge out the book and give my best explination, but take the advice of anyone that posts from actually playing it over me- 1:it uses pretty much the same general system their 40k game uses, get a pile of dice, roll against the number, pass the given amount to succeed. like always it's set up ...

Re: Why I think combat is less exciting in v4

While you aren't wrong, that's really a symptom of the problem- which is that the contested rolls are painfully swingy. Due to the way they built the system even a small advantage is quicklu overwhelming due to both the SLs system and the nature of single-die rolloffs. The result is either the GM le...

Re: Looking for RP-input on daily-life-behaviour of Sigmarian Warrior Priest

nothing saying a warrior priest can't get lynched for being caught pawning off artifacts instead of providing for the poor through donating to the local temple. it's not like the watch is going to get into the way of an angry mob to help a big man like him, just arrest anyone killing people with a b...

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.

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...
