Re: unbalanced races

I'm not sure if I have a fixation on levels and stats etc. as I've been GM for diceless Cthulhu stories just next to Bolt Action tabletop war games. I like both of those gameplay types, but when we choose a system it's like a common agreement within the team, what we expect from the game. Sorry, bu...

The pregens will be coming as a separate download, apparently.
Thanks for the info!

Where did you find out? Also, do you know what the timeframe is?
Someone asked on the Facebook group, and someone from C7 said it was coming as a download. No timeframe though.

Re: Channeling VS Channeling (Any Colour)

Yeah, Channelling (no specialisation) is used by Witches and the like. You need a separate Channelling (Colour) skill as a wizard.

Re: unbalanced races

habdankm +1. You're right on spot. Elves are unbalanced. Resiliencee, Fate, Endeavour and Social stigma aren't enough to square things out. RAW, the elves are a race for munchkins players. The best way to deal with them is to keep them as for a NPC race or to tweak their facials bonus to make them ...

Re: unbalanced races

Hasn’t happened in my campaign yet, but I’ll probably give the new character 80 or 90% of the group xp. If something like Dooming applies, I’ll grant 130-140%.

Re: unbalanced races

Habdankm, you’re underestimating the importance of Fate/fortune, Resilience/resolve, and overestimating the importance of the characteristics. It’s really not a problem.

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

I can’t see how it’s easier to ignore if provided than to just choose one as appropriate to your campaign. I don’t see the benefit.

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

I think it’s better for campaigns not to mention dates at all, unless timing is critical to the plot (set at a certain time of year, or over a specific timespan), which isn’t the case with TEW.

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

If I was writing the campaign, I’d specifically avoid mentioning dates. If I was editing it, I’d be sure to remove them. The problem is that there are dates mentioned. The handouts refer to Jahrdrung amd Mitterfruhl, and they only work with the adventure as written if you use a start date of 24 Jah...

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

But what would be the point? I don’t see what it adds to the campaign, other than an irritant for all the GMs who have to change the date? If I was writing the campaign, I’d specifically avoid mentioning dates. If I was editing it, I’d be sure to remove them.

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

Problem with dates is that you’re supposed to be able to slot other adventures as you like. There’s not much point having a start date as it’ll be different for every campaign.

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

My guess re the crossed pines is that someone realised that when you added the furniture, the ‘bar’ area was clearly tiny, so needed to be expanded. Hence the removal of the backroom/servery.

Based on what a dev said about this, the +2SL entry is supposed to be an overcast option.

Re: The Enemy Within for Christmas.

Appreciated @macd21. I had a reply from Antony at Cubicle 7 saying they are hoping for a Q1 (2020) release on the first book. I had wrongly assumed the hard copy would be following the PDF quite quickly. There had been a claim that there would be minimal gap between PDF and hardcopy at one point. N...

Re: The Enemy Within for Christmas.

The first adventure is out now. But the whole campaign before Christmas? Zero chance.

Oh, and if you were hoping for physical copies, the first book won’t be shipping until sometime next year (Q1 supposedly).

Re: Wfrp 4e Starter set PC's

I think you could run it with new PCs, I’d probably run Night of Blood and If Looks Could Kill with them first though.

Edit: one issue is the nature of the characters. If you’ve no combat types, they may struggle with some stuff.
