Re: Origins of the Gods.

things are a little more complex for the non-human races. the elven gods are essentially all representations of aspects of the elven psyche (yes, even the elves' gods exist to reflect how great the elves see themselves). I admit that I have a bit forgot how it worked, since I leaved Warhammer books...

Re: Origins of the Gods.

Re: Origins of the Gods.

-The chaos gods seem to me to be based on Cthulhu mythos spliced with Christian apocolyptic ideas. Sorry to bother, but could you explain this? I've heard this for years but as (too) much as i've read lovecraft's works never once has any parallels in their actions or motives come across. Is this ju...

Re: Origins of the Gods.

1: what makes a god in warhammer is intentionally unclear. this isn't a bad thing, but if you're trying to establish where the line is it can be a bit frustrating. the lazy version i've worked with (mostly to slam the door in the face of that one guy that tries to ascend to god-status in every RPG s...

Re: Post-TEW plans

OP made it sound like it's meant to follow TEW, which honestly baffles me because that's already a nightmarishly long and railroady campaign. i can't imagine anyone wanting to continue their characters from that point, since you're now all major political figures.

The worst thing that can happen if Cubicle 7 takes this as confirmation they don't need any quality control.

their existing releases have shown us they certainly don't intend to use this as any excuse for poor editing! >;D

Re: Wizard \ Magic related questions (new player)

Thanks about Petty Magic Clarification, makes much more sense to me now -Necromancy is a dark lore, and is intended for NPCs. if the GM wants he can let you learn it anyways, and the rules explictly state you can learn an arcane lore AND a dark lore. -The dark lores are only stop-gaps for the GM to...

Re: Switching to Apprentice Wizard career

rykof seems to have gotten the enthusiasm down so i'll just add in this little suggestion- magic in warhammer is an inborn talent, rather than simply an acquired skill and shouldn't be simply handed about. i'd suggest that if he's getting close to the XP he needs to make the switch to make a quickie...

Re: Hägercrybs adventures?

There hasn't been anything offical set in them, to the best of my knowledge. that said, i've never been very up to date on homebrew (honestly thought WFRP was a dead system when i got into it!) so i wouldn't give up hope just yet.

Re: Undead (vampires) in Old World

i think places the undead frequent are more of a "we cater to an exclusive clientle" sorta deal and just don't let anyone they don't already know (to be users of the dark arts) in" most of the time. it's less of a publicly advertised thing and more vampires bring more of their kind into the fold and...

Re: Changing Career Level

He could also do it via the changing careers endeavor Jareth, which IS a purely mechanical one that just requires the GM to agree to it. i concede that the way 4th handles it's progressions system is inconsistent and sloppy, but it's based around letting the players do what they want, and OP wants t...

Re: New campaign: Oldenhaller contract aka Boardwalk Empire

another matter to consider is that sigmar isn't the only god in the empire, and the churches of some of the gods like taal/rhya and ulric may decide it's part of their holy duty to allow these gifts to reach their faithful....i think rhya is explictly about wine after all. they might do it out of th...

Re: Changing Career Level

the designers don't get to overrule the printed material if your GM allows it. anything they say they "intended" after the printed material is out is just scuttlebutt. discuss it with the GM and if the other players want to bitch then let 'em cry. that said, instictive diction is handy and magical s...

Re: New Careers?

good work, but lore {empire} is awfully high on the list for what is essentially common knowledge. i'm also not so sure about "road agent" which sounds more to me like a tollkeeper, really. "road robber" maybe? flip that one with highwayman for titles. you could maybe mark which skill is the "earnin...
