Re: The Enemy Within to come...

we don't know, but andy law's method seems to be to 1:include everything they can at 2:pushing back the release date like a half-dozen times and cutting into the time they have to edit the finished material for quality. they're supposedly rewriting a fair amount of it, to boot.

Re: Gurkhal's Careers for Bretonnia and Beyond

Oh don't get me wrong, i'm not implying that the nobles have any concerns about peasants getting manipulated (beyond the risk of it cutting into their own rule, i suppose) i mean that there's a rather obnoxious amount of traveling knights out looking for something they can call an "evil cult" to str...

Re: Gurkhal's Careers for Bretonnia and Beyond

i think bretonnia is actually a lot harder for cults of personality to get by in- mostly in that questing and grail knights tend to rove around looking for anything suspect that might impose on the grace the lady provides by way of nobles tending to their villages hoping to find evil to thwart. seem...

and then it gets to hit again- i put up the suggestion to give the adventurers an option of winning the required combat without having to be good at combat.

Offical ogre suppliment?

I recall there being a small article about using Ogres as playable characters, but i'm having trouble finding it just now. Was this a real thing, or some fan product that i'm remembering as being much better made than it actually was? And does anyone know where it might be if it's just fanwork?

Re: If looks could kill

i'm not clear how using fortune/resolve for it's explicit purpose is clever, but the concern isn't that it might gain the advantage and they'll be unable to remove, it's that it's likely to gain the advantage regardless of them resetting it. My suggestion was about providing an environmental advanta...

Re: If looks could kill

if your concern is how fighting the monster is gonna go, throwing more bodies at it may not be the answer, since it can kill a hit of them and get a big advantage stack making trying to fight it pointless. you might want to telegraph something to drop on it and stun it if things are looking like the...

Re: 2nd ed. Opinions on home rules

The issue I have with not giving str bonus to damage but using it as a max for degrees of success is that this kind of ruins the type of character or monster that is the low skill brute. Take the giant for an extreme example the monster has a very low WS something like 28 I think but relys on hard ...

Re: 2nd ed. Opinions on home rules

i think the most important thing would be to limit the degree of countering attacks players get, to encourage them to move around more rather than trying to focus on getting all their attacks out to overcome the other side's defenses, rather than adding to their damage. but another way might be to m...

Re: If looks could kill

it's very straightforward and honestly a little threadbare, so i doubt you'll run into any problems. my only concern is that the right character might try to stay close to the man that hires the adventurers which can halt the adventure (because it requires him to spend a large portion of time alone ...

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

When you make many rolls (as you do in combat) Opposed Tests work fine, and this is also why WFRP4 has solved the whiffiness of WFRP2- that's not how 4th solved whiffing with opposed rolls. they solved whiffing by removing the ability to apply multiple layers of failure to an attack and forcing it ...

Re: The Lustrian Bubble fallout

that still wouldn't break the market, but it would probably result in the investors making a claim for debtor's prison i guess.

well, if it works for your game that's really all that matters in this case.
