Re: Death on the Reik: Getting PCs off the barge

Does the barge have a roofed section? Give 'em rain. If there are Coaching Inns dotted all over the Empire's major roadways, it's not unfathomable for there to be "River Inns" for toll keeping purposes or for boats that do not have sleeping space or cannot safely navigate at night (due to size or ma...

Re: End Times: Nagash - The 'Bad'

Without knowing what you plan to put in the 'Ugly' category, I would also put the whole Malekith fiasco in this category as well. Malekith attempts to become the new Phoenix King, gets rejected in the Flame of Asuryan, and then leaves with his followers to go become the Dark Elves. In the End Times,...

Re: Major shake-up at Cubicle 7

At this rate, I'm just hoping we get *something*. Honestly, I doubt we'll see anything beyond TEW re-release before the license expires.

Re: High mage question

Here's one take on how I might do High Magic. This is somewhat off the cuff, so if you need any explanations please ask, I'm happy to go into further detail. - Arcane spells can now combine lore traits from any lore(s) the wizard knows at a -10 penalty for each additional lore.

Re: Major shake-up at Cubicle 7

I'd settle for just an updated timeline for releases. With the shakeup, it would seem to be an appropriate time.

Re: Origins of the Gods.

What I had planned was to have a grand plot of Tzeentch to eject Ulric, Hoeth, and Grungni from the Aethyr and put into bodies to take away the Empire's ability to fight/courage (Ulric), the Elves' magic (Hoeth), and the Dwarves' iron will (Grungni). Part of the PC's jobs, then, would be to find a w...

Origins of the Gods.

I'm putting this under the 4th Edition sub-forum because (eventually) it is in relation to the 4th edition campaign I am running. If that is a mistake, my apologies, please move it to the proper forum. **Brad, Mael, read this at your own risk. ** A lot of this stems from my recent re-reading of the ...

Re: Fairy-Feller's Masterstroke: Introduction

On a related note, bearing in mind that "No plot survives contact with the PC's", to what level of detail should I be writing out the events of the campaign?

What level of detail would be helpful for others who may want to run this for their own groups?

Fairy-Feller's Masterstroke: Introduction

The introduction to a campaign I am writing for my group, comments welcome. The Forgotten Past... During the year 1999IC, the God-Emperor Sigmar passed judgment on the city of Mordheim bringing a comet onto the city and leaving it a smoking ruin. Since then, few have had any reason to return to the ...

Re: The hidden daemons of the mists: A treatise on the history, biology and society of the Fimir

Second paragraph of the introduction, "..Sigmar's struggles against a cult of monsters one eye who worship..." , should that not be "...a cult of one eyed monsters who worship..."?

Looks great, still reading through it.

Re: Rules questions

The rules seem to be a bit less clear compared to WFRP v1? Remove the question mark, that is a true statement. 2. Strength was one of the best advantages a combat oriented PC could buy in WFRP 1/2; not anymore it seems, or am I missing something? Since dmg is also depending on WS I would be better ...

One rule that my group uses: Toughness in combat can only absorb TB wounds per round. Character A has a Toughness of 40 and is wearing Light Armor. A is hit for 8 wounds, he takes 3 (8 - A's TB - Light Armor). If A gets hit again in that same round for 7 wounds he only subtracts his Light Armor and ...

Re: Melee (Parry) and Shields

There has been no clarification that I know of, official or otherwise. I am really hoping that by answering and trying to similarly seek some clarity, the controversy from StS does not rise here again. As I look at the Two Weapon Fighting section on page 163, I do see where *attacking* with an off-h...
