Re: Warhammer Old World, a.k.a. WFB returns.

"One of the coolest aspects of returning to the world-that-was is the opportunity to revisit certain aspects of its classic lore and delve into them in greater detail than ever before." Coming from the immature gang of GW's employees who perpetrates their abuses on a tabletop game now designed to p...

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.. In 2nd those were extras: you can hear better than most, reload faster, maybe know how to twist a blade when it strikes for extra penetration or get a flat bonus when using a certain skill....Worse case you can do somethign special with them in comb...

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!''

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...

Re: Dogs of War: WFRP Weapons vs WFB Weapons

You can always run it full WHFRP, have the movmenet of the untis and battlefield be like WFB, but when regiments clash, switch to WHFRP battle? Regiments strenght are still a thing, but when you get down and dirty to it, each models have 12 wounds average, just that a single turn of WFB might be wor...

Re: unbalanced races

The Elves got high initiative yes. Perhaps just use the tens of Initiative +1d10 to make it that they might not always start first always all the time. Unsure why you would make the Elves/Dwarves the same as the others, I think it's what makes them stand out rather than just being diffrently shaped ...

Re: Adjusting the Initiate career

I believe it comes from the fact that in the Old world you are born with the ability to use the Winds of Magic, and it suddenly appears one day in the open, while a Priest uses Faith and prayer to communicate with his God and do 'spells', hance why an initiate is basically a student staring up while...
