Re: Changing weapons in combat

Here's how I do it. To draw a new weapon *and drop your previous weapon on the ground* is a free action. But, QED, that means your previous weapon is... ...on the ground. To pick up and ready a weapon from the ground is a regular action. To sheathe/stow your old weapon before drawing the new one is ...

Adventurers wanted!

Since we're all still quarantined, I'm sure most of you, like myself, have a lot more free time on your hands. And if you are like myself, then you have the itch to go roaming through the Old World. Here's your chance. I'm looking for two brave souls to help fill out an adventuring party. When: Frid...

Re: WFRP 2 career advances

Yes, that was me.

I'm really glad it was helpful to you also! It really fit the problem without introducing a bunch of new problems and because Player's WS values don't change too often, the extra bookkeeping/work on the GM's part is quite minimal for the value added.

Re: WFRP 2 career advances

Stat advances are not cumulative, they are absolute. Each career you enter allows a certain number of advances to be taken in specific attributes, if the new career's max is higher **than the number of advances already taken** it raises the number of max advances that can be taken in that attribute,...

Re: Magic 4th edition

Every lore is useful in their own way. Pick whichever one looks the most fun or most in line with your character concept, they're all equally viable. Tier lists like that tend not to take adaptability and utility into consideration, and to that end, I agree with Jakhtur that there are some very stro...

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

I'm excited about this announcement because to me it indicates that they are actually moving forward with The Old World Project. But I was less than inspired by the sneak preview.

Re: Removing advantage from the game?

One simple houserule I want to test with my group is to keep Advantage working like it currently does, but in order to use it you have to spend it, so that you can no longer just accumulate it and use it passively.

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

How does the TW:W description of a Loremaster deviate from the concept proposed in this thread?

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

Malekith, most Loremasters of Hoeth (Teclis had the skill with a sword to do both, but he needed a potion of strength to balance out his otherwise weak body (but it proves your point)), Vampire Counts, most Chaos Champions of Tzeentch, Doomfire Warlocks (8e DE unit), Sisters of the Thorn (8e WE unit).

Re: Fan made?

You can always submit your version of things to this site.

You could try looking at Old World Beastiary (2e) if you need some inspiration, that might help.

What about disaffected priests/priestesses of Shallaya who want to alleviate disease in an area by distracting Nurgle to other places?

Re: Dice Mapping

I will check it out when I get home from work, thank you!

Basically what I'm looking for is something that says:
Fortune Die: 2 faces blank, 2 faces w/ 1 boon, 1 face with 2 boons. 1 face with 1 success.
Expertise Die: 1 hammer, 3 extra successes, 1 extra success, 3 faces blank.
etc etc.

Dice Mapping

My group is considering running through some of the 3e adventures in the future. But since we play online (via IRC) using the 3e custom dice is going to require writing/mapping our existing dice rolling scripts to the new dice.

Did FFG ever publish a mapping or enumeration of the dice faces?
