Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

The Empire in Ruins Companion is now out on PDF. This things looks very much like an expansion after glancing at the contents.

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

Hello mate, when you've got a second, d'you mind giving your opinion on the mass combat rules? I've never found a "zoomed out battle resolution with scope for individual actions that affect the overall outcome" system that ever fitted/worked/appealed to me, was hoping this would be the kiddie (I'm ...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

Development update out today. Slight delay in Empire in Ruins Companion but Archives of the Empire Volume II has been released in PDF. I grabbed it earlier, lots of stuff on Ogres, a good 30 pages or so. A decent sized section on Magic Items - a more sophisticated version of what was in 1st ed. Some...

Re: WFRP

Best of luck with the endeavour!

If it's not an impertinent question, does this mean you are no longer involved with WFRP 4th edition in an official manner?

Re: The Oldenhaller coat of arms?

I used my fancy new search tool on my 4th edition content and couldn't find anything (The Oldenhallers are mentioned in 6 of the published books). Although I have most 2nd and 3rd, they're only in physical copies and after checking the obvious places, I couldn't see anything. What 1st ed stuff I hav...

Re: Post Hornes Rat rewards

Are you handing out at the top end of the experience rewards at the end of each chapter? Also, the max reward at the end of EiR is a barony so it absolutely cannot be that high. A knighthood maybe...but it would have to be strings attached - there are places in EiR which gives the characters the opt...

Re: Best adventures

That list is a bit odd - a couple of glaring omissions: Oldenhaller Contract and Rough Night at the Three Feathers. Also, Shadows Over Bogenhafen and Enemy in Shadows? Also, The Enemy Within was not published for 2nd edition and the version for 3rd is a different campaign (one that should have been ...

Re: Magic Weapons

1st edition had a section for magic item properties that was fairly large and one of the supplements (possibly The Restless Dead) also had a bunch more stuff in. 2nd edition had some in Tome of Sorcery but nothing extensive. WFRP definitely doesn't follow the D&D/Pathfinder approach of magic items b...

Re: Magic Weapons

Nice list. Might be worth creating a google doc or similar resource and seeing if Chuck will host it.

I've been thinking of creating some sort of meta index myself following the success I had with elasticsearch on the WFRP PDFs.

Re: Feast of Blood

Thanks Robin, I was originally thinking that maybe straight after the Horned Rat with a slight juggling of the timing of Heinrich's intervention. Partly because it's a bit non-stopping train from the mid point of The Horned Rat to the end of Empire in Ruins but also because having a few more scenari...

Re: Feast of Blood

I picked it up yesterday and it looks nice from scanning over it.

I noticed it's played out Sylvania, but do you think adapting it to drop into TEW is easy?

Re: Input needed for Nulner Skaven- hunting campaign

Perhaps not directly linked to your need for maps or skaven material, but try and get hold of The Oldenhaller Contract. This is the intro scenario for 1st edition and is set in Nuln. It definitely sets the tone for the city (and perhaps WFRP in general)

Re: Magic Weapons

I'd honestly forgot about that rule from 1e. I've just checked the rule book again and I can see no mention of a WP test to master a magical item. However, there is a test for detecting magical items and identifying their capabilities. The rule states that it may typcially only be performed once. I'...

Re: Magic Weapons

It seems to be a special rule for that sword and given the phrasing of "pass or never be able to draw it," I would say no.

If you want to veto that as the GM, whether any increase, or an x increase, or next level, I'd say it's your call.

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

I saw the cryptic post last week, which mentioned the something about the Sea Claws. I was wondering if it was implying the adventure to The New World was in the offing, but it's likely a reference to the Salzenmund book mentioned (unless they're linked...).

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

We finally get the big secret plots behind the new TEW and Ubersreik campaigns, and it turns out they’re not that complex and could easily have been (and should have been) summarized in a page or two in the Starter Set and repeated in the introduction to Enemy in Shadows. That’s not to say the plot...

Re: What Enemy Within material to purchase after the Enemy Within Campaign?

I don't think there is anything that is directly related. There's more info on groups like the low kings, other active cults, more geographic information. I think it comes down to whether you want go out of scope of PBtT or build on top of what is there. What I'd say is that you're spending a lot of...
