Re: Imperial Calendar

Have someone an idea (or some sources) on how could be determined random lunations of Morrsliebe and eclipses of the Sun, of Mannsliebe and of Morrsliebe? I can't help you with lunar and solar stuff, but I can say that I wrote up the following little things for Morrslieb, about one and half year ag...

Re: New Careers?

Some other suggestions for the first part of the Highwayman Career may be; Footpad (may or may not work due to the fact that the character is supposed to get mounted, but may also work because the character supposedly is not yet mounted), Robber or Land Pirate.

Re: New Careers?

If this career is intended to follow, somewhat, the romantic idea of the Highwayman, rather than that of them as greedy and violent brutes, maybe the term "Knight of the Road" could work? https://www.thefreedictionary.com/knight+of+the+road EDITED: Or maybe the careers can offer chances to either b...

Re: New Careers?

i remember several careers in 3rd revolved around having special equipment as part of the career rather than skills, so i think it might be best to overlook it. I may take you to literal here, but I don't really see the problem with a equipment-basis for a career as opposed to skill-basis. There ar...

Re: New Careers?

not sure you should have to take a separate career just to not be a prick at doing your job, even if it is highway robbery. I agree, but I was more thinking that the characters get to pick between alternatives depending on which way the highway robbery is done. So for example Ranged (Crossbow) OR M...

Re: Videos and Podcasts

Some trailers to the great Vermintide series. :) Primary for inspiration, mood setting and visualization. Look at a drawn Skaven on a picture is nice, but seeing them move about really brings them to life and helps, at least me, to see them as they act in my mind's eye during a game. You seem to ha...

Re: House rules

As as kind of carry over from the 40k RPGs we have a house rrule, used in all Warhammer systems, that hits to the head does double damage. Because getting hit in the head is not good and its wise to invest in a helmet, or was, in RL as far as I know. Hmm.... if damage is done then yes, it can get s...

Re: Solkan: Lawful God of Vengeance and Retribution

Just want to thank you for taking the time to write this material. I will confess that personally I am not interested in the Gods of Law concept but I can see the use of a Solkan as a minor deity regardless, in my take on the Warhammer setting. But who knows, with more good material coming out regar...

Re: Warhammer novels, and short stories

Are they proper nasty or the "good evil" kind? I took a quick look at the Lexicanum and, from a potential ignorant perspective, it seems to me that Malus is probably a pretty nasty piece of work, but it seems he's primary positioned in the Chaos Wastes and Chaos-influenced north and so put against ...

Re: Warhammer novels, and short stories

I liked Darkblade when I was a teen, so take that as you will. Some of it is super edgy as you would expect, but some moments from the books still stick out to me to this date. Warpsword was my favourite of the Darkblade series, but the comics trump them entirely because of how filled with cheesey ...

Re: Warhammer novels, and short stories

Here's a question; are the books about Malus Darkblade any good? I know that Dan Abnett was involved with them and everything I've read so far by him have been good as far as I'm concerned. And do you think there could be hope that they would be released as part of the "Warhammer Chronicles" series ...

Interesting, I guess the only way to find out is to get hold of a copy and see where that leads me.

Re: Heresy Unleashed: Have AoS Battletomes something to offer?

Full disclosure, I've only flipped through the Sylvaneth Battletome briefly and that is the limit of my experience with them. I think they will be supremely useful if/when C7 gets around to publishing the Age of Sigmar RPG. What I saw was really useful for helping to set the tone both for the chara...

Heresy Unleashed: Have AoS Battletomes something to offer?

As many of us know the old army books, and other books, of the Warhammer Fantasy Battle game are becoming, in my experience, harder to get hold of, and I don't have a full library of them already :(, and for that reason I would ask if someone have an opinion on if the Battletomes of Age of Sigmar ha...

Re: Town garrison/militia, and WFB

If I were running a larger skirmish or battle - next time I see that coming up is when/if my players storm Castle Wittgenstein with the outlaws :) - I'll probably be using a more abstract mass-combat system. My favourite so far is GURPS Mass Combat - I've already done a conversion of it to my BRP-b...

Re: Town garrison/militia, and WFB

Have not heard of Field of Glory series. Have to check it out. Please do. Beyond its utility for simulating major battles in RPGs its a good game on its own. There's a "Field of Glory I" that can be downloaded or bought somewhere, even if I don't have it myself, and a "Field of Glory II" that can b...
