Re: Simplified resolution system

I am in the situation of playing with D&D 5e rules. I have put a few thoughts into how to play in the old world with D&D rules. Also I thought of converting WFRP stats to D&D.

What you describe is very familiar, except for using a d10 instead of a d20.

Re: Imperial Calendar

I intend to go through your list and see where I can provide input. I need some time during an evening for this, which is rare.
I do not know historic versions of German. So you will only get a contemporary view.

Re: Imperial Calendar

'Abend' means evening according to the translator. If that's the case then i think that Geheimnisabend could be an interesting alternative name for Geheimnisnacht, and it could be 'Geheimnisnacht' and 'VorGeheimnisabend'. The word Vorabend has a meaning either as the evening before a certain day. I...

Re: Imperial Calendar

Well, I am German, even from the equivalent of the Reikland. And what is the "real" equivalent of Reikland? Actually I've never thought one might be able to show it on the map of Germany. With the Reik being the Rhine, I see the Rhineland as the equivalent to the Reikland. I would point to the area...

Re: Imperial Calendar

It might also be interesting and verisimilous ('true simulating') to use a different prefix for Geheimnisnacht instead of 'Vor', such as (note that i don't know German and that i'm using a translator here) 'Bis' or 'Bisvor'. Well, I am German, even from the equivalent of the Reikland. I really like...

The old world podcast had an episode about conversion. They also provided an excel to support it.

Re: Nurgle cults - what defines them?

What about the Tzeentchian cultists in TEW? ... True, but I have to ask if they are of note or if the Purple Hand is based on a lower class basis. Or if just the pawns and grunts comes from such background? Probably the second is true. So in the end such cults may simply reflect the same old hierar...

What about the Tzeentchian cultists in TEW? Those trying to contact the PCs do not seem upper class to me.

Re: Welcome!

Hi. Things seem a bit busier in here of late :) I'd like to know what you make of playing Heart of Glass. I've read through all the Ubersreik Adventures and that was the one I really wasn't sure about. It reads well, but it is very railroaded and feels like it's a big adventure compressed down too ...

Re: Nurgle cults - what defines them?

Just a quick idea: what about hypochondriacs assembling in a cult, because there someone finally takes them seriously?

Mad Men of Gotheim

We just played mad Men of Gotheim last weekend. We had a great time and enjoyed the short adventure. It is good for a one-shot filling a 4 hour session. I listened to wreckless dice' podcast version of it before, which gave me a good overview. The podcast actual play is around 2-3 hours. I did not f...

Re: Comparison with Zweihander

I never read the Zweihänder books. What are the gods called therein? Ulroc, Sagmir? Also, wasn't Zweihänder developed in the time, where there was 3E only? I had the uneducated understanding that it was done, because there was no hope for WFRP to be continued in the spirit of 1E and 2E. That would e...

As an aside, I hate that Cubicle 7 is making me pay attention to Twitter.
I fully agree. Why can't they just send their newsletter? Same with Facebook and all those discord channels. We have this perfect forum.

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

I finally acquired and started reading the PDF. So far I got to the Weissbrück episode. The whole thing so far is full of promises for the next books, especially the horned rat and empire in ruins. Nothing to substantial, but it raises high expectations. I really hope that C7 will fulfill that. I li...

Re: Ties between Starter Set and Enemy Within

They are not tightly linked. A few Background NPCs appear in more than one adventure. I see them as small fleshed out pieces in the Ubersreik "Sandbox". The single adventure can be railroady, at least heart of glass.

Does anyone have access to the guilty party? I cannot see it on dtrpg yet.

Re: Ties between Starter Set and Enemy Within

Opening this up, because C7 announced "The Guilty Party". First of all to let everyone in the forum know.
Second: does somebody know, if this particular Ubersreik adventure is going to be available as PDF?

Re: Combat example

I understand that it went well for the party, maybe to well. He had already upped the stats of the beastmen and it is surprising that it still was relatively easy to beat them.

I have no 4e experience (due to missing VTT support), so I cannot judge, if this should be expected at 5500 XP.

This may be a wild proposal. Wouldn't that mean that it may be worth trying the 4e advantage system with 1e or 2e? Did someone try such a thing?
