Tobcon 3 - report

Tobcon 3 was, just like the two previous events, again a lot of fun. Part of it is meeting up again with those people who have been to previous TimCon-WimCon-TobCon series of conventions, and who have sort of grown into a group of friends who meet once a year. The other part, of course, are the game...

Re: Switching to Apprentice Wizard career

WFRP 2e p. 141 flavor text seems to indicate one in a million can be a wizard and one in ten billion a Battle Wizard. I estimate the population of the Empire to be around 5 million citizens, so these numbers seem totally off. Heh. I remember the playtesting for second edition. In the playtest docum...

Re: Hägercrybs adventures?

Seems like your chance to ‘populate’ the crybs. Someone (a criminal? A pair of forbidden lovers? A young noble running from debtors? An academic who has found clues to the location of a treasure in the hills and is now trying to find it, not knowing of (or believing in) the curse upon that treasure?...

Re: Chaos Cultist Game Summary

To start, I had my players write me some answers to a few questions so I could properly corrupt them and goad them towards their ends. The questions were as follows: Where are you from? How religious is your character? What do you hate? What do you love? How many/what family members do you have? Ho...

Re: Wanna help me design my next WFPR campaign? (edition agnostic)

Whymme : Man, you’ve got some really cool ideas, and I like your set-up & pay-off character moments and tricks. Very cool stuff :D Thanks. Appreciated. I might put the whole thing to paper once the campaign has run its course. I'd like to get my players' comments on it all before I do so, though. M...

Re: Wanna help me design my next WFPR campaign? (edition agnostic)

Ooooh, that is really quite cool, Whymme. I have been toying with the idea of doing something in Marienburg, and I like the thought of doing something with a non-chaotic evil cult; a Khaine plot should be very interesting indeed. And your Dreamlands thing is very clever, and something that would le...

Re: Wanna help me design my next WFPR campaign? (edition agnostic)

I'm now running a campaign that's two stories into one. The first campaign is set in Marienburg, where the PCs started as a gang of smugglers. They get drawn into a conflict in the local thieves' guild, which has grown into a full-blown gang war after the death of Henschmann (the guild leader). Next...

Re: Looking for an encounter idea

I had wanted to report back to you before, but never got to. So, a bit late, my report. A tea party it was - the PCs stumbled upon it in the middle of an army camp, and apparently nobody else noticed the table or the strange people sitting there. The PCs could see everything around them in the camp,...

Re: Fixes for Ashes of Middenheim

It's long ago since I've read the book, so I don't know the details anymore. I know that I didn't like it at all, and I remember some of the points why I didn't. * The adventure takes the whole kitchen sink of WFRP baddies - skaven, cultists, beastmen, whatever you can think of. And the only reason ...

Re: The Lustrian Bubble fallout

Orin, you would be correct if people would only invest in the options with money they can afford to lose. However, ‘savvy’ investors and people seeing an opportunity might borrow money to buy shares, or use money that they have now, but would only need in a month’s time - buy the options now, sell t...

Re: Return of the Gnome

Gnomes were a bit of an afterthought in WFRP1, just a joke article to fill the pages of a WD magazine. Somehow, from there they achieved a sort of iconic status, partly thanks to the figure of Alphonse Hercule de Gascogne in the excellent scenario "With a little help from my friends", but mostly bec...

Re: Looking for an encounter idea

Thanks for your ideas. I like them a lot. Alas, I haven't read enough Moorcock, so don't know Elric of Melnibone. And my players don't know enough of the WFRP background, so we won't be dealing with Empress Magritta. I love the idea of the group barging in on an unbirthday party, though. The monster...

Looking for an encounter idea

My campaign is partly playing in the Realms of Dream, sort of like Lovecraft's Dreamlands, but now for WFRP. The setting is fleshed out as we go along. Next session, this weekend, the party will be on the trail of a small military unit who has kidnapped an NPC. In order to enliven the chase, I'd lik...

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

As someone who doesn’t have fourth edition, I’d like to know why you couldn’t compensate the advantage of elves and dwarfs at chargen with extra XP for the less advantaged races. So either you choose an elf, or you choose a human and get 600 XP extra to spend on skills and advances.

Re: TEW - From a PC's perspective.

Anyone remember the rather bland ten questions to flesh out your character's background, in second edition? Jude came with the fantastic idea to ask a follow-up question to each of those, to make that background count for something in play. For instance, he followed up the "Where are you from?" ques...

Re: Call of Cthulhu rpg adventure 'Amongst the Ancient Trees' using WFRP 2e

If you want to introduce the players to something uniquely Warhammer, then pick something that will occur in later scenarios as well. That makes it unique and useful. What use is showing something unique, only to not have it appear for the rest of the campaign? "Look, this world has Fimir! And we wo...
