Re: Dice Mapping

I will check it out when I get home from work, thank you!

Basically what I'm looking for is something that says:
Fortune Die: 2 faces blank, 2 faces w/ 1 boon, 1 face with 2 boons. 1 face with 1 success.
Expertise Die: 1 hammer, 3 extra successes, 1 extra success, 3 faces blank.
etc etc.

Dice Mapping

My group is considering running through some of the 3e adventures in the future. But since we play online (via IRC) using the 3e custom dice is going to require writing/mapping our existing dice rolling scripts to the new dice.

Did FFG ever publish a mapping or enumeration of the dice faces?

Will the real Purple Hand please stand up?

As I'm wrapping up my first campaign (which went really well), I have started thinking about some things to include in my next campaign. One thing I want to do is adapt another episode of the Twilight Zone and the one I had in mind is "Will the real Martian please stand up?" Spoilers follow: A group...

The Howling Man

I submitted this to the scenario contest on the WFRP Facebook group, but wanted to put it here as well for the general repository.

Re: unbalanced races

Rarely, but when it does happen, then the character with the higher total I wins the tie.

Regarding your question to FasterThanJesus, how much tactics do you give your enemies? Why should the weaklings be the ones in charge range of the Elf instead of the leaders?

Re: unbalanced races

My group has been using Initiative as 1d10+Initiative Bonus (rather than 1d10+ full initiative) even since back when we were using 2e. You may find that helpful.

Re: unbalanced races

I think this is one situation where 'Mathhammer' and real table experience may yield different results, and would also encourage you to try it out in a game.

Re: Dogs of War: WFRP Weapons vs WFB Weapons

Warhammer Skirmish is basically WFB 6e with some of the unit mechanics taken away. But I already use those concepts (and from LotR SBG) for WFRP combat as it is, what I find lacking is large massed unit combat in 4e (and 2e, if I'm being honest) which neither game really delves into. What each lacks...

Re: Dogs of War: WFRP Weapons vs WFB Weapons

Correct about Flanking (which also provides +1 Combat Resolution. Rear charges give +2 and also break ranks).

Re: Dogs of War: WFRP Weapons vs WFB Weapons

Yes, wounds and excess wounds (up to +5) caused in a Duel count as points for Combat Resolution. Combat resolution is: Wounds Scored (including Wounds inflicted in a Duel) Unit Banner Battle Standard Rank Bonus And (a nice addition from 8th edition) +1 to the side that charged in that turn (if any)....

This is why I love posting my ideas here, because you all give me such good fodder to think about. A very sincere thank you to all of you. Braddoc, excellent ideas. Here's what I'm thinking right now, PCs in a unit would act as a second unit champion, and any combats with a PC would be resolved as a...

Re: Dogs of War: WFRP Weapons vs WFB Weapons

@makrellen That locks me into using WFB 2e or 3e rules which would be a huge step backwards in terms of playability (and also finding resources for my players). Great idea though. @FasterThanJesus I am familiar with Mighty Empires, but the flip side of the coin here is that WFRP characters have ~12 ...

Dogs of War: WFRP Weapons vs WFB Weapons

As I mentioned in a different thread, my next campaign is going to be a fusion of WFRP rules and WFB rules. At this point, I'm leaning towards WFRP 2e with Only War combat mechanics combined with WFB 7e rules. My current difficulty is how to move between the different weapon rules for the two rulese...

Re: Warhammer Old World, a.k.a. WFB returns.

1) I love the idea that we may see a return to the Old World, it keeps it alive. The more it stays alive, the more we'll continue to see continued, active investment in WFRP. 2) As a longtime model collector, hopefully this means that we'll continue to see new sculpts and new ideas for inspiration i...

Re: unbalanced races

@habdankm It sounds like your problem is not the stats, your problem is the players. Trying to use the rules to force your players to play nice with each other is like trying to drive a screw with a hammer. You're using the wrong tool to solve a different problem.

Re: unbalanced races

From a purely stat driven point of view, I don't think the races are supposed to be balanced. Elves and Dwarves in the WFRP setting *are* physically and mentally superior to humans. Emphasis on the word purely, because there are limiting factors that prevent them from taking over the world.

Re: Proof of ownership

If the horse panicked and fled, then it probably fled with it's saddle/tack/gear still on it. The saddle might have the PC's name inscribed on it (see the opening scene from the movie Silverado where Paden gets his horse back), if the finder of the horse doesn't have a chance to hide/remove the gear...
