Re: Reviews and opinions of WFRP 4e adventures

My pleasure. If you do buy it, please post your thoughts, whatever they are. Well, okay, constructive thoughts, whatever they are!

Re: Reviews and opinions of WFRP 4e adventures

I think the Oldenhaller Contract has a pretty good claim on being the start of it, and that's from the original core book. The financial rewards for PCs completing the Oldenhaller Contract were not insignificant. I think, as Robin says, there's a difference between 'grim and perilous' and 'miserabl...

Re: Gnome thread archive

You could search the Wayback Machine website. It's not there; almost nothing on StS got archived. Does anyone who was there for a long time (I was only an occasional lurker, & only ~2018ish when my thoughts returned to RPGs) know of anyone who tried site-scraping it or any other of the more dramati...

Re: Monuments of the Reikland

Hello, I'm not particularly comfortable promoting my own work, but Wolf suggested that I did in the 4e forum, so that gets me off the hook. My conscience is now clear . Last week Cubicle 7 released a pdf that I wrote - the first official thing I've had published for WFRP. Although it's designed for...

Re: Typos, Missing Text & Errors In 4th Edition Books

I'm looking to complete my 4th Edition collection but want to hold back buying any books which have very glaring typos or missing text and wait for reprints of the most obviously typo-ed books. So which books are the most error free and least likely to be offensive to this borderline OCD collector....

Re: Alternate Castle Wittgenstein maps

This map looks great. I am looking forward to seeing your version of the Inner Bailey. Thank you! I've realised since that some of my calculations and scales were off, so there'll be a "second edition" of the Outer Bailey along with the Inner. I'll see if I find some time to work on it next week, i...

Hello mate, I'd love to have a look but Google Drive says the files are locked?

I've just asked permission on two of them, via the sign-in.

Re: Shadows Over Bogenhafen help, please?

Hello everyone, thank you for the advice. After playing through last night's session I came to the conclusion that one player likes to "problematise the narrative", shall we say, & seems to spend every second dreaming up ways to derail whatever's going on & remain in a state of analysis paralysis. T...

Are you aware of Gideon's Companion to the first edition of the campaign? It can be downloaded here: https://onedrive.live.com/?id=C86ACFA4B04325B4%21240&cid=C86ACFA4B04325B4 . There is some advice on pp. 34 and 37, with some handouts. There are also a bunch of links here: https://awesomeliesblog.w...

Re: Shadows Over Bogenhafen help, please?

Are the player enjoying the game? Are you enjoying the game? Is this actually a problem that needs fixing? If it is a problem: What are you players goals? What do they want? Why should they engage with the plot? My players are definitely enjoying it, thank you. They don't really have any goals, oth...

Shadows Over Bogenhafen help, please?

Hey people, hope everyone's well in these weird times. Long post incoming, sorry! I'm running Shadows Over Bogenhafen for the first time (with hacked WFRP 2 rules) & it's getting late on the second day of the Schaffenfest, & I'm a bit worried. I think the problem might be my group's lack of familiar...

Re: WFRP 2 career advances

A quick hack: add (50 - opponent's skill). So if your opponent has Melee 35 and you have 35, you'll both get a 50% chance (35 + [50 - 35 = 15] = 50%). If you have 25 and your opponent has 35, you roll 40% and they roll 60%. Using the to-hit table, two 35% opponents would each have a 50% chance of h...

Re: Fate points and critical hits

It seems we are two who are the evil ones :D Seriously - having tried a more soft approach to Fate Points earlier (yes - burn a FP now and your hand is still attached) I find that making hits really count is far my preferred method. I laid it out to the players before my current 1st ed campaign and...

Re: Fate points and critical hits

It appears I am the evil one. In the instance of losing a body part & death from bleeding/shock/whatever, a spent FP means a player will miraculously survive/use their own belt as a tourniquet before passing out/tied off their torn artery with their teeth etc., but they still lose their body part. I...

Re: WFRP 2 career advances

Stat advances are not cumulative, they are absolute. Each career you enter allows a certain number of advances to be taken in specific attributes, if the new career's max is higher **than the number of advances already taken** it raises the number of max advances that can be taken in that attribute...

Re: WFRP 2 career advances

That's all correct. I would very much discourage anyone from choosing to pay the 200xp to leave a career early, it does somewhat screw up the system. One of the reasons is, yes you theoretically have to go back and remove the advances they have not taken from their advance scheme, which when I had ...

WFRP 2 career advances

Hello everyone, I hope quarantine is going well. I have a bit of a quandary I'm trying to resolve before our online WFRP2 session tonight. It's time for Advances. I've read the exhaustively confusing rules on this repeatedly, but there's still many grey areas. The most looming of which is: If a play...
