Re: WFRP 4 analysis

I'm pretty much exactly where you are Cap. I've given up on 4E and see it as a bit of a disappointment.

Oh well, here's hoping that the 5ed is better.

Re: Hide Skill (and Concealment Rural/Urban)

i think it was more intended to imply being aware of not disturbing anything that might make noise or otherwise direct attention to their location, but it's not really compatible with the way the rule is exeucted. I'd just say +5% for moving at half speed or lower for caution, or otherwise having t...

Re: Hide Skill (and Concealment Rural/Urban)

I think I'm going to house rule that the +5% (pg 48-49) is deducted off the Listen check (pg 70) when a character employs the 'Sneak' skill (pg 71).

Do you think that will work or does it upset something somewhere else?

Hide Skill (and Concealment Rural/Urban)

Pages 48-49 Concealment Urban/Rural : " Hide tests should be made with a +20% modifier if the character is keep­ ing still, or a + 5 % modifier if the character is moving cautiously. [/color]." Page 69 Hide " This test shows whether characters can evade discovery by skulking in the shadows, in a dar...

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

So not CpnZapp obviously - but I will answer that anyway. I have found it much easier to import the few good things from 4th into 1st than to house rule 4th. But I never had a big problem with the way magic works in 1st edition so keep that in mind. You make a good point. I've always thought that a...

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

So what's your current opinion on WFRP4 CapnZapp, is it worth saving with house rules?

I've just bought 1st edition and updated the pdf with the known errata. Still not sure if I'll be GMing 1st or 4th though.

I want to love 4th but I've heard so many negative reviews about it.

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

Not sure that's enough to satisfy my wants to be honest. It's actually more a case fo not wanting a player to get bored with a limited use of magic.

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

A spellcaster is either an Uber-Elf or restricted to just one colour of magic If non-elves can only cast from one colour of magic, then that does suck. EDIT: And yes, it does look like it's one coloured magic per character. I'm sure in 1st ed you could dabble in them all; summoning, demonology, nec...

Sounds like this isn't the system for you.
Was thinking the same. Not that I have much of an idea, seeing as I'm still going through the rulebook.

Re: Errata

Great news (it's out) and disappointing (I just hope they do update later print runs with the errata).

House Rules

There was a great house rules document on the STS forums but I suppose that is now lost. It might have been an all in one document or I might have put it together myself out of all the house rules out there. Have you incorporated any WFRP4 rules into your 1st ed games? I was specifically looking to ...
