Back in 2nd there was a ''Synod of the Faiths'', some big meeting where all the Heads of the Churches met at the Imperial Palace, With the Emperor presiding; even if he was usually just there for the first day- and even then, that mostly mostly just the entrance of all the Leaders of the Faiths and ...

Re: Sillyhammer

I'm stealing that Grail Pilgrim Hooligan idea; perfect for that tourney happening in Bogenhafen during the Harverst Festival (aka the Schaffenfest from EiS). Even if there's some 'fun' events planned for that Festival, what with Stevesdores filling in for the Watch, and the local 'hillbilly' family ...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

I think it does more with being able to argumentively beat fascism rather than using violence. I agree with Le Passant's thoughts about being an debatable subject; we must be able to discuss the matter is to be resolved. Using violence just drags things on with the intellectual equivalence of sticki...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

I haven't followed Vampire, but it sounds like they really struggled with trying to portray "shades of grey" as pertains to fascism. Really, that's not a political issue anyway , it's an issue of basic human decency vs. oppression. There has never been an example of "good fascism" so attempts to po...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Honestly it can die in hellfire. I want my RPG games to be free of real world politics do what you want at your table but for publishers that want my money keep it fictional. If you want your game product to be some passive aggressive messaging and preaching I'll just pass your product up. I play t...

Re: Roadwardens and pistols

Which stacking qualities of ammo and gun are you referring to? Ah, not stacking per se, but ammunition have qualities in 4th ed, compared to 2nd and 1st which the weapon had qualities, and the ammo was just ammo. Ammunition quality are more qualities and special rules you got to keep in mind when y...

Re: Combat example

The talents...just those are enough to go insane..

Re: Roadwardens and pistols

Well, both wardens respond directly to the Emperor, so as such they get good gear. They have a rather important and dangerous job to do, a pistol is technically more powerful than a 'mere' crossbow. Also say what you will, but a crossbow bolt is hard hitting but still is a bolt; a bullet kicks even ...

Yeah, good call..else it's gonna be 3-4 PCs agaisnt a regiment of Marauders, since everyone ran away... ''Retreat? But we're PCs!'' And Flanking negates rank bonus IIRC as well, so just charging head first may not be always the best move...got to suck up some melee before having the friendly regimen...

Re: Dogs of War: WFRP Weapons vs WFB Weapons

I'll have to recheck the duelligng rules form last edition, but it sounds good. Would combat resolution be affected by the PCs' round of 'Duel' in anyway? Doesn't t gives a bonus to Ld or something?

Re: Roughs Nights and Hard Days Impressions/Review

From the foreword of the book, only the Three Feathers is an old scenario, I beleive the others are new and added as a continuation of the Three Feathers. In fact only "A Day at the Trials" and "A Night at the Opera" are brand new. "Nastassia's Wedding" is a slight reworking of a 1E adventure (orig...

Re: Roughs Nights and Hard Days Impressions/Review

-There are now Guards and Bodyguards that are protecting the Gravin, seems a bit redundant, but yet again the career system is a bit more rigid than before. I expect this is due to the way in which careers and career names in fourth edition are more of a generic (though not totally generic; in rela...
