Re: Channeling VS Channeling (Any Colour)

Given that Channeling is a Grouped skill and needs a focus and that there is a Lore of Witchcraft, I am assuming it was supposed to read Channeling (Witchcraft). That's how I'm running it. As for counting for Wizard, I would say no, as Wizards are practitioners of color/wind magic. I would say you w...

Re: unbalanced races

An elf with a bow isn't as bad as a halfling with a sling. Our group has a halfling Hunter with the highest skill in the group (and we have one of each race) at a 65 in Ranged (Sling). Here's a question, how do you handle a player bringing in a new character after they lose one? If there game has be...

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

I'm with macd21 on this one. Having it there just to modify or ignore is a waste of word count IMHO. You also have the opposite issue to what someone said earlier. Some GM's see a date and have a hard time altering it. Played in a D&D Forgotten Realms game a couple decades back where the GM "couldn'...

Looks solid and serviceable.

I'll play around with it later this evening.

Re: High mage question

Here's one take on how I might do High Magic. This is somewhat off the cuff, so if you need any explanations please ask, I'm happy to go into further detail. - Arcane spells can now combine lore traits from any lore(s) the wizard knows at a -10 penalty for each additional lore. (Blast benefits from...

Re: High mage question

But what about elven High Mages, somebody might ask. Honestly, I don't give a crap . You would need thousands and thousands AND THOUSANDS of experience points before that even becomes relevant. Lemme focus on the 99% of actual Wizard characters I see in-game and not on some special snowflake Teclis...

Crabs are as they are.

But anyway, giving some basic rules for High Magic is certainly a thing that should be considered, by me if by no one else, for my own games.
I would be interested in your thoughts, if you would be willing to share.

Re: High mage question

If an elf has two different schools of magic to draw from, he has to keep his spell lists separate. Meaning if you know Blast for jade magic and then you learned bright magic, you would have to learn Blast again to cast it with the bright magic effects. EDIT: Yes, this means paying the full costs f...

High mage question

Question with what other thought. Elves can learn a second win of magic after a good bit of play, but how would you deal with the wind's extra effect? Does a mage with the white and red wind choose between blinding or setting ablaze or does it do both? Hopefully looking for honest on the question. D...

Re: Errata Update

So, for those who have read the link below: www.cubicle7games.com/wfrp-in-defence-of-defence Would you say a player has to read it to understand the rules of defence, or are they just commentary?

Re: Changing Career Level

Fair enough, forgot the endeavors. However as you said, if the GM approves though. IMHO skipping a level should always be a story reason, never a "do I really have to slog through Sergeant? It's so boring, I want to go straight to Captain!" Now the OP may have actual story reasons, but from what was...

Re: Changing Career Level

The basic rule is you have to have all your characteristics of the current level bought up to 10 advances, 1 talent from level 2 and any 8 of the 14 possible skills (8 from level 1 and an additional 6 from level 2) bought up to 10 advances. That's what's "RAW" is needed to advance to Wizard level 3....

Re: New Careers?

I've warmed a litle to Knight of the Road. In RL it was a bit of a subversion anyway, and Warhammer has a quirky take on both RL history and fantasy tropes. If we want our highwaymen to fall into the more romanticised, magnificent bastard type, I think it fits. There are plenty enough of the gritte...

Just a quick I threw together (finally had a chance to work on Warhammer). Please feel free to make suggestions/pick it apart. Trappings are missing, but I figure those are the easiest part really.

Re: Gnome warrior priests

Careers are set up with racial norms (Dwarf only for Slayer, etc) but mentions that those races are the ones typical to those careers. The only flat out banned is Dwarf spellcaster as Magic Resistance negates the ability to cast anything and Gnome Wizards choosing any wind other than Ulgu (Grey wind...

Perhaps start off as Brigand* rather than Desperado? The horse would be a brass level trapping to move to highwayman.

* I don't have the rulebook in front of me, so don't know if that's already taken in v4.
Brigand is level 1 Outlaw unfortunately.

Re: New Careers?

If this career is intended to follow, somewhat, the romantic idea of the Highwayman, rather than that of them as greedy and violent brutes, maybe the term "Knight of the Road" could work? https://www.thefreedictionary.com/knight+of+the+road EDITED: Or maybe the careers can offer chances to either b...

Re: New Careers?

I was looking at the Compendium last night and had a quick go at drawing up a spreadsheet to map them across to v4. I think it might be better to look at career paths due to v4s tiered system which formalises the paths. I actually forgot just how many careers there were in v2, particularly looking ...
