Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

[Even in "Enemy Within" so far we've had one Khorne cultist, one Slaanesh cultist and a Chaos Dwarf and the party didn't fall apart and we didn't indulge in random acts of "Stupid Evil" activity. We did even have the Khorne and Slaanesh cultist in the same party, along with a zealous Sigmarite knig...

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

Fair enough, you know your group a lot better than we do. 🙂

If I were to go this route myself, I’d be inclined to have all the PCs be members of one specific Cult (e.g. you’re all Yellow Fang, or all worshippers of Ahalt) to bind them more closely together, but YMMV.

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

I think that a party such as you are advocating would collapse fairly quickly, as Herr Arnulfe predicts. Theft, torture and murder pale quite quickly - I believe cartoony type villains have a chance to last longer as PCs, such as Skaven or Goblinoids. Having said that, one could take each player as...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

I agree with this 100%. However, I still think Toby, Stuart and James should start a far-right fanzine in protest against the new paradigm of inclusivity and representation. It could provide an outlet for all the WFRP fans who feel alienated by lefty sensitivity. Sure thing, Jude... because everyon...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Sigmar's Justice & Peace Warriors "Big Red" was believed to have immolated when the comet hit Mordheim, delivering a sermon to it that it was woman-hating sorcery at its worst. The comet proved to be quite egalitarian, as history shows. Either way, "Big Red" was not seen after the comet's destructi...

There's a rather interesting Gotrek & Felix story called A Place of Quiet Assembly that deals with a Solkan school, although the finale is a little one note.
Cheers, I must have missed that one! I’ll check it out.

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Perhaps the Empire might be plagued by a fringe cult that similarly demands absolute ideological purity of its members, including slavish obedience to its prophets’ ever-changing demands. Differentiating this cult of “Sigmarite Justice Warriors” from other forms of puritans and theocrats might be c...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Again, Herr Arnulfe, you're using fairly aggressive language to suggest that leftists (which I assume you identify with) have immutable characteristics that make them superior. In this case it is moral superiority, and a feeling of moral superiority, as we know, leads to justification of some prett...

If anything that kind of humorous scenario hook can make some lovely 2020 commentary on the controversies facing cis-female athletes. Just the kind of "thought provoking" content I'm sure everyone will welcome. "'Arry might be 7 ft. tall and built like a small watch tower, but we found him as a cal...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

You haven't mentioned humour and black comedy much, which is the main way I introduced social justice movements into my games. My last TOBCON scenario changed Karl from The Thousand Throne s into Karla - a Greta Thunberg clone. Her followers were busy trying to tear down a statue of Sigmar, daubing...

Re: End Times: Nagash - the 'Good'

The Gods of Law barely feature in the End Times but their effective proxy is the undead. Basically, the credible case is made that Nagash and his world of the dead are the true opposite of the Ruinous Powers - unchanging and permanent, if Nagash destoys all life, then the Chaos Gods will die.

Re: WHFR 4e - Are Wizards playable?

I’ve been running a 4th edition game for the last 12 months, and one of my players is a Wizard. We certainly haven’t found the class unplayable, or even underpowered. Dart is his go-to spell in combat, and we’ve found it exceptionally effective in combat. The damage output is (usually) minimal, but ...

Re: Ahalt the Drinker

To my knowledge, no. Ahalt the Drinker is briefly mentioned in Tome of Salvation as well but it doesn't add any additional information. Turns out I was wrong. Ahalt’s also mentioned a few times in C.L. Werner’s novel The Black Plague, where one of his druids appears as a minor villain. Ahalt’s desc...
