Re: Cathay sourcebook?

Nothing wrong with being "woke" and wanting your modern RPG product to fit modern sensibilities (especially if they are your own sensibilities). I don't want to speak for Fox, but I don't think he's saying the developer of any new Asian-inspired fantasy RPG has to be Asian, just that that's what he ...

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

Not sure about mechanics, but Grey Wizards seem to be quite fond of using swords as more than just symbolic weapons. And of course, there's always the Bright Magic spell Flaming Sword of Rhuin.

Re: Nurgle cults - what defines them?

I am a bit surprised by the link of Tzeentch to the elite - I would expect him to have followers among the wretched lower classes of society, who crave for change. The elite generally are pretty content where they are and would favour stability. But that aside. Well, it was both in regards to from ...

Re: Fan made?

Thanks for the clarifications regarding the Dreadfleet djinn/spirits/elementals. I do own the book, but it's been a while since I read it.

Re: Fan made?

Elementals (in the traditional sense of fire, water, air, earth) are part of Arabyan magic, at least as per the Arabyan character in Dreadfleet who can summon them. I don't think there's ever been an official source on Araby and how their magic works though.

Re: Dice Mapping

Nothing official that I'm aware of, but Gitzman's dice stickers accurately recreate the dice faces, so you could use those to work it out: http://www.gitzmansgallery.com/docs/WFRP-Sticker-Template.pdf Failing that, there are a few online dice rollers/apps. Not sure if you'd be able to integrate them...

Re: Combat example

Fair enough. Perhaps a good rule of thumb would be that if someone or a group wants to discuss the beastiary's problems, they start a thread called "my problems with the beastiary" and discuss it there? That won't shut down critical discussion or individual critics, and in fact if there are any lur...

Re: Combat example

I have been doing this "level of work" for a long time and in several different systems. (Emphasis mine) That's great for you, but lots of people haven't, and wouldn't necessarily know where to start, especially if this is their first RPG. I personally dislike the D&D style of monsters for anything...

Re: Rights to previous editions?

Regarding the 3e TEW, I seem to remember Graeme Davis's comments being non-commital but with a strong implication that they wouldn't be incorporating material from that into the TEW Director's Cut. That would make sense because the 3e version is a completely different campaign set 10 years later. It...

Re: Enemy In Shadows Companion Available

"Sadly" they fixed the issue I raised, but I'm keeping the old version for posterity. There's something humorously Warhammery about high priests being based in the wrong cities! I'm just skimming through, but I already noticed that the list of electors (page 15-16) says the High Priest of Nuln is ba...

Sure. Though full disclosure, like OldPlayer I get tired of opening a thread and reading the same few commenters tell me why a system sucks. A problem certainly not limited to WFRPG4 That's fair. I don't think I post enough (especially about rules) to be one of those commenters (again, I hope). I f...

Re: Comparison with Zweihander

Thanks Karanthir! The idea I had about Fox was that he tried to make his wfrp-homemade-clone when FFG was no more supporting the line and maybe he tried to acquire license from GW. C7 did it instead and I've always thought (from comments in some forum or blog I can't recall) that he tried to slip i...

Re: Comparison with Zweihander

The gods in Zweihander don't have names as such. They have titles instead. So not-Sigmar is The God Emperor, not-Ulric is The Winter King, not-Shallya is The Martyr, etc. I presume they are supposed to represent 'universal concepts' to which you can add your own names for your setting. My understand...

Re: Roadwardens and pistols

i'm pretty sure the reason is because pistols can be used one-handed and carried easily, so roadwardens can draw up ahd be ready to shoot without having to get out and steady a big two-handed crossbow. besides, maybe they don't own them? what if it's supplied by the state and they're expected to pa...

Re: Comparison with Zweihander

For all the people claiming that Warhammer/GW is "just inspiration" and Zweihander is "theft", bear in mind that Michael Moorcock invented the Chaos Star and has never received a penny from GW (or any of the many, many others who have used it). They didn't just "file the numbers off", they literally...

Re: Combat example

Fair comment regarding less experienced GMs and the need to have some intuition about how to set the level correctly and lack of guidance. You don’t have to do it in details for all creatures. Just the special ones in my experience. If you're doing guidance, yeah, just a few examples is fine. If yo...
