Re: Encumbrance confusion

From the brief look I've had at some of the 2e encumberance rules, it looks like it may be trying to take into account both weight *and* bulk. Meaning that while gold crowns may be heavy for their size, they are relatively compact and easily stored. A sword on the other hand may not weigh a lot, bu...

Are you asking specifically about 2E rules? (Encumbrance rules vary widely between editions)
1E or 2E is fine. 1E is probably better since I mainly need it for trading in DotR, but either works.

Edit: 1E or 2E are the rulesets I have access to now. Haven't got 4E yet.

Encumbrance confusion

Getting into Death on the Reik, I'm looking into the various trade rules (the "River Life of the Empire" and the trading rules in the 2E, and that apparently means I need to get my head around the encumbrance rules for reference. But they appear at first glance to make no sense at all. Is there any ...

Hi there, my name is Ralph, I'm from Germany and a 1st Edition WFRP player and GM for 30 years. /.../ Now, I'm preparing for my third attempt to run (and finally finish!) TEW.

The Enemy Within Remixed, Season 2: Death on the Reik (campaign report)

After the holiday break, Season 2 of my remixed The Enemy Within campaign – based on Death on the Reik, mostly – begun last week. I’m still working out some of the plotlines. Campaign thread on RPGNet, including recaps of Season 1 and details on how I’ve modified the setting and plot I also talk abo...

Organised crime in Altdorf

Is there any good material written - official or fan-made - about criminal gangs in Altdorf (or other quasi-Renaissance cities)? I'll have some future subplots involving an Altdorf crimelord that a couple of my PCs have had previous dealings with, and while this won't be a major plotline for a long ...

Re: Call of Cthulhu rpg adventure 'Amongst the Ancient Trees' using WFRP 2e

On the other hand, keeping it as some kind of ancient space alien could make for some neat foreshadowing of, or even connect to, the plot of the Wittgenstein meteorite in Death on the Reik.

Re: Remixing Death on the Reik: The schemes of the Red Crown and the Wittgenstein meteorite (very long)

Things I haven’t decided on yet and would much appreciate input on: - Should my Etelka Herzen actually be a member of the Red Crown? (See my other thread for more on my take on the cults.) I’m leaning towards her maybe being more of an “independent expert”, but either way she’s mainly out for herse...

Re: Remixing Death on the Reik: The schemes of the Red Crown and the Wittgenstein meteorite (very long)

Some plot/background modifications I’ve already settled on: - Several parties interested in ancient and forbidden knowledge have learned about ancient and mostly lost technology of probable extraterrestrial origin, including a device to create doppelgangers or shapeshifting homunculi. This device w...

Remixing Death on the Reik: The schemes of the Red Crown and the Wittgenstein meteorite (very long)

I’m getting ready to begin the second “season” – that is, more or less, Death on the Reik - of my remixed The Enemy Within campaign . I’m reworking some of the plotlines, in part to fit better with my reworked setting (see the first few posts in the linked thread), in part to strengthen the links to...

Re: Remixed TEW: Rethinking the Tzeentch cults (long)

I remember reading your original campaign notes over on StS and really liking your ideas for remixing the Old World. Once again, you have lots of great ideas that I want to keep in mind for if I ever get round to doing something similar myself! Thank you. :) I'm (slowly) working on setting up a blo...

Personally i like the overall direction you've taken it. I wonder how the Cubicle 7 version of The Enemy Within Campaign will compare. Thanks! Yeah, I'm curious about the new version as well. Sounds good. Of course you could use a mix of all these things to different degrees in different places in ...

Looks like a very interesting adventure.

At a dramatic juncture the derelich, Herr ...

Re: Remixed TEW: Rethinking the Tzeentch cults (long)

I'm not sure where you are drawing the line between 'truly evil' and 'deluded'. Someone can be deluded and commit evil acts. Someone can commit evil acts because they are deluded, perhaps specifically because they believe that these acts are good, not evil. I was a bit unclear here. I quite agree, ...

As I’m getting ready to run the second “season” of my remixed The Enemy Within campaign , based on Death on the Reik , I’m going to have to start making some decisions about the Chaos cults working behind the scenes and driving some of the plots.

Re: Welcome!

Hi. Thanks for starting this up. :)

I'm starting "Season 2" of my remixed TEW campaign next week and thought I'd post my session logs here, as well as on RPG.Net, if people are interested in reading them.
