Re: Contradiction?

So Ingrid has completed the Prospector career and that's why she can choose one of the Prospector career exits as her next career. Not sure what you're saying here. Are you implying you have to fully complete a career? As i read it the rule, or guideline, as you will, is that a character does need ...

Re: Contradiction?

I'm ruling you can change career whenever you want but it has to make sense in the narrative. The rules on changing careers in first edition have always been more of a set of guidelines for the GM. I took a brief look through the changing careers rules in the rulebook, the 'Skills and Careers' arti...

I'm also wondering if the TEW dev diary will ever appear again, since its solitary showing two months ago.
You're referring to the 'bonus material' you get with the special edition?

3 resignations. The Laws could be passed off as personal reasons. The third has wider implications.
Ha! Well it is a Games Workshop licence. Who is the third resignation? (Andy Law, Lindsay Law and ?)

Re: Halfling Size

Page 341, the rule is pretty clear: "it multiplies any Damage caused by the number of steps larger it is (so, 2 steps=x2, ...." Humans are just 1 step larger than Halflings, so Damage x1, not double. If anyone is thinking that they can invoke this rule to receive x0 damage from an opponent, the rul...

Re: Origins of the Gods.

My feeling is that links that one might found between those two natures are quite superficial in my humble opinion... I'm not sure superficial is the right word, but i'd say they are, or were, tenuous. i'd say "imagined" is the right word, honestly. it would likely be more fair to say Call of Cthul...

Re: Origins of the Gods.

This influence isn't significant on the nature of Chaos Gods... Mythos's gods are asleep space creatures hidden in the beneath of Earth, while Warhammer Chaos god are creatures created by (mainly human and eldar) souls in the warp who happen to interact -like other Warhammer Gods- with the material...

Re: Origins of the Gods.

The influence of H. P. Lovecraft on Anthony Ackland in his development of the WFRP 1st edition depiction of the Chaos gods has been specifically stated, but Call Of Cthulhu has also been mentioned as one of Graeme Davis' gaming influences. Given Graeme Davis' involvement in WFRP 1st edition i think ...

Re: Origins of the Gods.

I took a look at Gideon's 'Awesome Lies' blog and i found some references to Lovecraft and Cthulhu in these posts: https://awesomeliesblog.wordpress.com/2017/03/18/theogony-part-two/ https://awesomeliesblog.wordpress.com/2017/09/28/interview-with-graeme-davis/ https://awesomeliesblog.wordpress.com/2...

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.

It seems to me that the diversity of the apparently different natures of the various different gods reflects the origins and influences of the Warhammer Fantasy universe from which they came. The dwarf gods seem to me to be Tolkienesque, based on the idea of the seven ancestors of the dwarves in Mid...

Re: The Enemy Within to come...

I think C7 is leaving this open. Everyone can decide how they will play the future of Warhammer World, if their games reach circa 2521 and beyond. You can ignore both SoC and TET. Or play either one... [Lots of interesting stuff] My own impression from what I've seen so far of the 4th edition backg...

Re: The Enemy Within to come...

To (attempt to) be clear, and to paraphrase both myself and FasterThanJesus to some extent, WFRP 1st edition's The Enemy Within campaign is set 10 or 20 years (depending on which commentator is correct) before the WFB Storm of Chaos if it is set within the/a version of the Warhammer Fantasy universe...

Re: The Enemy Within to come...

I’m new to all this. Ha! No shit :) . I advise not spoiling it for yourself with spoilers and the like. Is the new Enemy Within pre or post Storm of Chaos? It's pre Storm of Chaos. Indeed, though it may be a little presumptuous of me to say so, i'd say it's pre any version of the Warhammer universe...
