Re: What and where is Zaiyon?

I was fairly sure it was a pun on Zion (assuming I'd read the script correctly). Yes, the script reads "Zaiyon". However, if we assume it reads "Saigon" (which is unlikely, though) we get another interesting pun. This one would refer to, depending on the perspective, either The Fall of Saigon or th...

Magic and Alignment

The issue I would like to discuss is related strictly to the first edition in its primal pre-Hogshead era. So, please, no Colour Magic, no Tzeentch's Curse, no Corruption rules, etc. On p. 138 the first-edition rulebook reads: The study and practice of the unspeakable art of Demonology and Necromanc...

Re: Sillyhammer

All good drama/action/thrillers make good use of lighter elements to help relieve tension before building it back up, good writers do the same thing. One of the things that makes Warhammer so delightful is that it includes those bits of whimsy and doesn't take itself too seriously. What are some th...

Re: Solutions to Whiffing

"if both combatants have WS less than 55%, double both ratings". Three doubts. 1) Your rule can be interpreted in two ways: either WS of each combatant must be less than 55% or the sum of WS of both combatants must be less than 55%. The example makes it clear, though. 2) If you double WS 54%, it is...

Re: Who has run both enemy within and doomstones

I agree about Kislev even back on the day when I used it a bit I wasn't happy with it. SRiK felt out of place.The TEW companion is a good resource and seems to help smooth out the edges a bit. I you don't like "Something Rotten in Kislev", you have a very good alternative: you can either smooth it ...

Re: Minor deities or local forms of major deities?

But my main question is that when these guys start up all manner of classical cults and build Greco-Roman/Classical Tilean-ish temples, which they don't really know much about when it comes ot it, is it likely given the general way religion works in the Old World that these are brought in as minor ...

Re: Imperial Calendar

Well, I am German, even from the equivalent of the Reikland. And what is the "real" equivalent of Reikland? Actually I've never thought one might be able to show it on the map of Germany. I really like the sometimes silly German names in WFRP. It's great fun. I concur. My knowledge of German is too...

Re: One week to flesh out a new adventure ...

Another reason would be in line with the second answer; by leading the peasants in revolution , the children position themselves as the natural leaders of those peasants. Somehow (possibly with the help of the peasants ) the PCs escape and flee through the tunnel. If peasants were followers of the ...

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

Thanks guy. This makes everything much easier :-) So, how about those Fimirs? My PCs will likely run into those guys in Act 2, and I wonder, what are some fun and interesting things to do with fimirs? Apart from orchestrating some kick-butt combat encounters? I've barely ever used them, and not sin...

Re: The Twin Tailed.

It occurred to me that i've never, to my recollection, seen mention of the similarity between Tzeentch's twin tailed symbol and Sigmar's twin tailed comet.

Re: LE GOFF, La civilisation de l'Occident médiéval.
