Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

Because 2e was published in book format, I was able to go to a local shop and flip through a book and see if it was any good and then (usually) buy it. With 3e being released in shrink wrapped boxes (presumably to provide a single vessel to hold all the tokens, cardboard punch sheets, and adventure...

Re: Almarr???

From the place names, it sounds like the author may have been using a pre-WFRP1 conception of the Old World, when things were a bit less clearly defined. Middleton in particular is similar to the sorts of place names used in the WFB2 supplement Blood on the Streets : set in 'The Riding' with settlem...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

Did it? The first publication that seem to diverge from Empire in Flames is Games Workshop's Warhammer Armies: The Empire (WFB6, 2000): "It is the year 2520 of the Imperial Calendar, and Karl Franz is the ruling Emperor." Flame's Death's Dark Shadow and Descartes's Pour la gloire d'Ulric were in li...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

Yes, alternative SoC is probably a good way to look at it. But the point is that Archaon's ET invasion takes a different course to his SoC invasion, and involved different leaders of Chaos forces. Likewise, the activities of some of the Imperial leaders are different (e.g. Volkmar going to Sylvannia...

Re: What and where is Zaiyon?

It's always possible the Zaiyon/Zion resemblance is a coincidence, and we are once again "fooled by randomness" (or at least arbitrariness). Whatever the reason behind including it was, the Zion/Zaiyon resemblance must have been intentional. The verse on the DotR handout is modified from Father Bre...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

My preferred fix for the personality change of Boris Todbringer from 1E to 2E is simple: in the "canonical" timeline, Wasmeier's plot was successful and the Graf was actually replaced by an imposter. Thus they seem like very different people for the simple reason that they are different people. I s...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

This is the crux of it for me - we can draw on the locations and NPCs that the End Times, Storm of Chaos, Dark Shadows, Nemesis Crown, Storm of Magic, Lustria Campaign etc. gave us. But I don't see the point in ending the world for players and GMs. But I think an optional setting sourcebook for cam...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

The End Times start approximately 2519 and last approximately 10 years. If we take into account that TEW starts 2512, then we have 7 years till the End Times. There is too much material that you can fit in such a big timeline. Even inside the End Times you can find great adventure. That being said,...

I thought it did. It wasn't translated in France (or, more exactly, the French translation which was done never get GW's imprimatur [nor even GW's refusal]). Thank you for your correction.

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

One quote possibly interesting to some people: "The Storm of Chaos campaign focused on Middenheim and the Cult of Ulric. Boris Todbringer had been represented by this time as a somewhat more heroic and vigorous man who had lost his eye to the Beastlord Khazrak One-Eye. Tying this to the Red Crown, ...

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

I thought the issue with 3e was all about the rule mechanics and 'component creep', rather than the scenarios. The adventures I've read are just as good as other editions and they had some great writers - Dave Allen, Graeme Davis and Clive Oldfield from this parish, amongst others. You're almost ce...

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

Maybe given the general response to 3e among large parts of the community they just don't see it as a particularly worthwhile revenue stream, so not a priority.

Re: Cheap Tickets - Parts 2 & 3

Unfortunately it looks like they were never published. But Andy Jones has done a lot of Warhammer related stuff down the years, so who knows, maybe they'll appear one day.

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

C7 do own the rights to 3e material, and apparently there is interest from the design team in making it all available in pdf format (i.e. as previously published by FFG, not updated to 4e). But, unsurprisingly, they don't have the time or people-power to do that at the moment on top of what they're ...

Re: Best object quests

Isn't 3e's Witch's Song a broken object quest too? No, you might be thinking of The Gathering Storm, which is a fairly classic broken object quest. It might not be that exciting/interesting for an experienced group, but it's a very good intro to the Warhammer world in that it has a variety of enemi...

Re: Great Blog - Warhammer 3ed Opposed Checks

Sounds similar to my experiences. A stat of 5 can skew things a bit, but you pretty much have to start with another stat of 2 to get it, so I suppose it balances out that way.

Fortunately I haven't yet had a playing willing to commit the advances needed to get to a stat of 6!

Excellent stuff, thanks for sharing! I don't have anything to add, but I completely agree with you about limiting talents.
