Empire at War v2

Monday, May 28th, 2007

I recently received an email from one Rolph Segers, who has completed the enormous task of converting the NPCs from Alfred Nuñez Jr’s brilliant alternate conclusion to the Enemy Within campaign, Empire at War. Empire at War, originally written for v1, is an option for those fans of the campaign who either cannot find the elusive (and expensive) official conclusion Empire in Flames, or desire to play through a conclusion that smoothly bridges the two versions of WFRP.

You can find Segers’ conversions here, and Nuñez’s original at Strike to Stun.

Unlimited Healing: Take Two

Sunday, May 6th, 2007

Sorry for the lack of updates. Life has been quite hectic over the last several months.

My previous post on solving the problem of unlimited healing is itself problematic, because it would increase the likelihood of rampant chaos effects with healers, primarily followers of Shallya. Since witch hunters would not tolerate the existence of Shallyan priestesses who, in their eyes, routinely traffic with the forces of Chaos (as evidenced by common chaos manifestations), it does not seem to make sense to attempt to limit the casting of healing spells by increasing the likelihood of calling down the curse of Tzeentch.

So, back to the drawing board. Fortunately, I may have hit upon a simple, elegant solution that does not involve Chaos at all: healing spells tamper with the recipient’s life force, and thus should come at some cost. I propose that every time a successful Heal spell is cast upon a wounded PC, that PC suffers a -10% to his or her Toughness score.
