Re: Solkan: Lawful God of Vengeance and Retribution

Afternoon, chaps. This one just came to me, thought I’d share it here as well: “The night is darksome, Chill and deep. May Solkan guard thee while you sleep.” “The Witching Moon Calls forth Old Night. Solkan be thy shield ‘Til morning’s light.” - Stirland children’s rhyme, some substitute Sigmar’s n...

Re: Fear and Loathing in 4th Edition

Agreed. And Resolve and Resilience Points seem a terrible fit for WFRP’s grim and perilous vibe more generally.

Re: TEW Remastered - Collectors Edition Preorder!

As far as i can see the only difference in the actual product* of the special edition is the 'special covers' ( which i don't like that much ). Am i wrong? * As opposed to the 'extras' like 'developer diaries' and an earlier PDF. You’re not wrong, I got the same impression from C7’s Facebook post. ...

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...

Re: Solkan: Lawful God of Vengeance and Retribution

Cheers for the replies. The Gods of Law are one of the things I find most interesting about the WFRP setting (and it’s a real shame that GW abandoned them so quickly). I’ll probably be writing a few more bits and pieces for my campaigns, and will be sure to post them here. It’d also be great to set ...

Solkan: Lawful God of Vengeance and Retribution

Evening, all. If you're playing in my WFRP game in Northfields, then please don't read any further. Everyone else, I've written up some background and rules with my thoughts on how the Cult of Solkan might operate in 4th edition and a couple of handouts for use in my campaign. Let me know if you hav...

Re: Children PCs in WFRP4

Yeah, that sounds about right. How old are the characters going to be? I’d be tempted to waive the -10 penalty to Agility and Dexterity, as those reviews areas where a child character might even have the advantage over an adult. Depending on their background, access to Skills such as Stealth and Out...

I've never heard of anyone using him in a game, although he seems well suited to a Wicker Man style scenario.

Re: Miracles of Solkan

The problem I see is that with this kind of loose determination for the subject of the effect is that it can degenerate into a "I think..." vs "But I think..." unless you've done something terribly wrong with explaining things to your group, it should be understood that what the god decides is the ...

i think adding the +2 damage mentioned in cleansing flame to chaos followers would be properly thematic, personally.
That's a good suggestion, but it's already included in Soulfire (the Miracle of Sigmar that I adapted).

So Solkan is back, in the fourth edition?
Solkan’s not in any published materials from C7. These would be house rules.

Re: Miracles of Solkan

Overall, not bad. I like the re-use of other abilities (Soulfire/Unblemished Innocence/etc). My only real concerns are with A) Commination (did you mean Condemnation?) seems a little OP, I might change it to say that the flames can be extinguished with another spell or by dousing with holy water or...

Miracles of Solkan

If you’re playing in my 4th edition game, please stop reading. Everyone else... What do you think of the following house rules for Miracles of Solkan in the 4th edition game that I’m GMing? Give me a shout as to whether they sound balanced and appropriate, and whether you’d make any changes? Miracl...

Re: The Words of the Law

Something I thought worth giving a link, over on the subreddit someone has made a post asking for some feedback and ideas on a Cult of Solkan campaign they're doing. If your favorite color is grey, you’re currently considering piracy in Luccini, and constantly worrying about getting “vendetta’d”, t...

Re: The Lustrian Bubble fallout

IIRC, the scenario’s very heavily inspired by the events of the South Sea Bubble - so I’d suggest mirroring that. Perhaps the inquiry’s therefore conducted by Marienburg’s Board of Directors rather than through the court system.

The Words of the Law

Some Law based fluff from my Warhammer campaign: ‘His eyes were opened. And for the first time he saw the World, which he had taken in his blindness for a rich and noble kingdom, to be naught but a Vale of Shadows, ephemeral and fleeting. And he saw the people who dwelt there, as they fumbled in the...
