Re: Cathay sourcebook?

I see that Grim and Perilous Studios have pulled out of publishing Tetsubo : https://grimandperilous.com/tetsubo-licensing-to-end-with-grim-will-not-be-renewed/ Some of the reasoning sounds a little odd. How exactly is it deemed a product of it's time, I wonder? Some cultural sensibilities being off...

Re: Nurgle cults - what defines them?

I remember having a conversation with Theo at a previous TOBCON about the problems I had imaging why anyone would worship Nurgle. He made the interesting point that the fiction depicts followers and demons of Nurgle in an often joyous state - frolicking about in Grandfather Nurgle's garden. There is...

Re: Combat example

I've been playing WFRP since it first came out in 1986, through all editions, and I quite like this most recent one. I've been playing in a campaign for over a year with numerous combats and not found anything broken in the system.

Re: Rights to previous editions?

Nothing of 3rd edition has been released as a pdf though, has it? It was also the first stuff to start getting converted - such as part of 'Edge of Night'. I guess this could be because Cubicle 7 have largely followed FFG in fleshing out Ubersreik as a base for PCs. Has the section on Ubersreik nobi...

Rights to previous editions?

Am I right that Cubicle 7 have the publishing rights to all the WFRP material ever published by Hogshead, GW, Green Ronin and FFG? I see that they've adapted a bit of 3rd edition stuff but I'm surprised they haven't just released on pdf other stuff that FFG (and others) designed. Is there a reason f...

TOBCON IV

It's still seven months away, but I wanted to announce that TOBCON IV will be taking place at Northfield community centre in London this August Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th). Attendees are always a mix of regulars and newcomers, so all are welcome. The event involves playing i...

Re: Comparison with Zweihander

I found the wound mechanics in Zweihander completely incomprehensible, I'm afraid. I did like the mechanics to travelling a long distance, as I recall, having played it twice in scenarios at a previous TOBCON.
I much prefer 4th edition WFRP.

End Times: Nagash - the 'Ugly'

1. Pegasus droppings - I wish I'd thought of this in my own Bretonnian campsign. A flyover of Pegasus knights could make quite the unintended impression on watchers below! 2. Brass Keep - I quite like the way that during the End Times incursion, some completely wacky things happen out of nowhere. Th...

End Times: Nagash - The 'Bad'

1. Endless Quest Items - to raise Nagash from the dead you require his three magic staffs. Oh, make sure you get hold of his magic crown and his withered hand. Err... I think you also need his magic armour. Ah , I almost forgot - you'll also need his nine magic tomes. Got that? 2. A Terrible Plan - ...

End Times: Nagash - the 'Good'

SPOILER ALERT: The Return of Nagash novel Given that it chronicles the extinction of the Warhammer world we all know and love - 'the world that was' as GW term it now - there has long seemed litle point reading the End Times stories, as the events in them will not come to fruition in most WFRP games...

Re: Starter Set Advice: Are Trolls Really THAT Scary?

I'd have thought that 'killing' a foe can also be mitigated by the loss of a fate point instead - that's usually the case in Warhammer. Fate points are like gold dust, so the loss of one for a PC is hardly negligible.

Re: Tobcon 3 - report

For the first time, it wasn't a lack of GMs to run games that was presenting challenges to me as the organiser of the con, but a smaller number of players than I had expected. This was due to several regular attendees not being able to make it for various reasons, so I was forced to think on my feet...

Re: Tobcon 3

OK, here's the final timetable with players allocated. As you can see, this year we have a few players lacking at this stage after some dropouts. We could certainly use two or three more each day - Rich Murkin is only a possible for Sunday. If you know anyone who wants to come, do get them to drop m...

Re: Tobcon 3

I'll post the timetable with everyone's allocated games this weekend. Just a quick note to say that after a couple of players dropped out, we have a couple of spare slots - if anyone has a friend who wants to come, do let me know asap.
