Re: Shadows Over Bogenhafen help, please?

Are the player enjoying the game? Are you enjoying the game? Is this actually a problem that needs fixing?

If it is a problem: What are you players goals? What do they want? Why should they engage with the plot?

Re: WFRP 2 career advances

That's all correct. I would very much discourage anyone from choosing to pay the 200xp to leave a career early, it does somewhat screw up the system. One of the reasons is, yes you theoretically have to go back and remove the advances they have not taken from their advance scheme, which when I had t...

Re: Any canon examples of characters using both might and magic?

As well as the Elf Ranger I mentioned above, another idea (although you would need to rework it a lot i suspect) is they way Defenders of the Forest at Liber Fanatica handled Wardancers, where they changed to Dances to spells. This is all pretty weak in terms of suggestions but I am really strugglin...

Have you looked at the Elf Ranger (Mage subtype) from Warhammer Quest?

Re: Any canon examples of characters using both might and magic?

This is hard to answer tbh. Fiction tends not to make this distinction as fiction does not measure time in rounds in the first place. In first edition WFRP I do not believe this is possible, by anyone. In second edition WFRP Dart (and indeed Fire Ball) are half actions so can be combined with a Stan...

Re: Fan made?

Good catch. TBH that page probably has all the information in Dreadfleet anyway, I don't get the impression it was particularly in depth? Although the possible Nagash connection is quite interesting. Although we are possibly getting away from the main point, if you need magical construct-type things...

Re: Fan made?

Elementals (in the traditional sense of fire, water, air, earth) are part of Arabyan magic, at least as per the Arabyan character in Dreadfleet who can summon them. I don't think there's ever been an official source on Araby and how their magic works though. I think those are Sea Nymphs, Tempest Dj...

Re: Fan made?

Elementals last appeared for Warhammer Fantasy Battle in Storm of Magic which I think was published in 2010.

By Storm of Magic I obviously meant to write Monstrous Arcanum of 2012.

Re: Roadwardens and pistols

It may be worth bearing in mind that the Pistol is not even the most expensive trapping the roadwarden requires, the Light warhorse is worth far more.

Other materials written by other authors might be off limits without explicitly getting the authors' permission. I'm not sure how copyright law works in these situations though.

Re: Rights to previous editions?

Nothing of 3rd edition has been released as a pdf though, has it? I did not even think to check for third tbh. I suppose the problem is the core rules are so dependent on bits and special dice etc. that printing it would probably be a pain. And I can see why they would not be comfortable printing s...

Re: Rights to previous editions?

Looking at DriveThru, they have 12 1st edition pdfs and 25 2nd edition.

The big missing ones seem to be Apocrypha Two (they only uploaded one last November so its probably coming), Dwarves: Stone and Steel, and the last Doomstones books.

Re: Roadwardens and pistols

I think part of it was probably to make them more distinct from outriders, who are in a very similar niche.

Of course given the WFB Outriders, it probably would have made more sense the other way around.
