Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

Based on my experiences playing evil campaigns, TEW would be far too long for a thought experiment. Most of the satisfaction of playing an evil PC comes from entertaining the other players with your interpretation. Players don't tend to derive much enjoyment from committing evil acts in-game. Based...

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

You seem to have divided the Empire into 'forces of Order' and 'forces of Chaos', of which i'd say (even in fourth edition) the majority of the Empire's populace, including the sample PCs given in the original TEW, do not belong to. Further, in so far as they exist, the 'forces of Order' (aka Solka...

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

To the members of the Honorable and Fraternal Order of the Extremely Irate Water Buffalo, a very sophisticated Chaos cult, the Purple Hand is nothing but a bunch of amateurish hacks who risk too much. If they succeed, they risk bringing more witch hunters to the area (who might accidentally find/ex...

Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

This is something that I've been thinking a little about. I am currently playing EW for the first time with my group and so haven't read the whole campaign. But I still wanted to discuss the following scenario of playing this, and possibly other, campaigns from a bad guy perspective. I have no curre...

Re: Minor deities or local forms of major deities?

Thanks guys, I think I know how to proceed. I'll try to obscure the metaphysics for the players and add a political dimension with two factions, one that want the cults to be minor and see controllable by members of the elite and a faction that wants to see them either folded up or brought in under ...

Re: Minor deities or local forms of major deities?

Yes, it may have been the long-winded but the basics I want to get the answer; Is it more common/normal to go with aspects of major deities or minor deities? I know I can do as I wish, but I thought that I should check some other perspectives in before my decision on this.

Minor deities or local forms of major deities?

I have a question in regards to religious expression in the Old World. I am making preperations for a game in an area where I decided that these guys are a bit crazy about the classical inheritance of the Old World. Thus official stuff often gets a Greco-Roman look, there's a theater for classical T...

Re: Any canon examples of characters using both might and magic?

I am actually rather in favor of battle mages. We've got battle priests and the mages of the Empire are supposed to spend time on actual battlefields. I'd figure many of them wouldn't want to be entirely reliant on their spells if things gets tight, after seeing how a choppa with their own eyes. And...

Re: The Howling Man

A fun little scenario.

I do think that I have an idea how on to convert this to Bretonnia and use it as a start for a longer set of events to influence the players and story. Downloaded and saved. :D

What about the Tzeentchian cultists in TEW? Those trying to contact the PCs do not seem upper class to me.
True, but I have to ask if they are of note or if the Purple Hand is based on a lower class basis. Or if just the pawns and grunts comes from such background?

Re: Nurgle cults - what defines them?

A Warhammer novel, "The Enemy Within" (with no connections to the wfrp campaign) has a bunch of gutter level Tzeentchian cultists. The old Beasts in Velvet novel had Tzeentchian cultists playing in the background. An Agitator (Yefgemy Yefimovich, or something) might have been born above the gutter,...

Re: Nurgle cults - what defines them?

I am a bit surprised by the link of Tzeentch to the elite - I would expect him to have followers among the wretched lower classes of society, who crave for change. The elite generally are pretty content where they are and would favour stability. But that aside. Well, it was both in regards to from ...

Re: Nurgle cults - what defines them?

I usually see Nurgle cults as being pretty populist and so in a kind of opposition to the more elitist Tzeentch and Slaanesh cults. Hence I often angle their messages with some vague populist ideas and sentiments (mostly because I want something more to Nurgle than shock value and "look at me, I hav...

Re: Roadwardens and pistols

Reading this thread I have started thinking about lowering the prices of firearms. I have explained the high cost of firearms by them using a wheellock mechanism, and that being new and complex, with only a few manufacturers (e.g., Dwarf shops in Nuln) being able to produce those. So high demand + ...

I guess I am one of the few who is thrilled that the social aspects of the Old World being brought in and that it isn't just handwaved but there's a concrete way to deal with various elements that comes from a class society like the Old World. Now I understand that this could potentially be unnecess...
