Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

Thank you for your unironic answer. So are you thinking that Aztec gods are Chaotic Gods or are aspects of the gods of Chaos? Do you believe that such Gods really exist in our real world or do you think that Chaos would in fact be unrelated to Chaos gods? If so, is being "Chaotic" not a fantastic a...

Re: Reviews and opinions of WFRP 4e adventures

My thought was that there was a strong chance that players would begin to wonder why there was a mill being built in the middle of an out of the way swamp. It seems a ridiculous place to put it: it doesn’t appear to be conveniently located and, since the ground is swampy won’t offer a suitable stro...

Re: Rules - Shield use

So basic shields are largely pointless - you get two armour points and defensive, but you get -20 to defend (effectively giving your opponent +2 damage), so a net of only +1. Sure you get armour to defend against opposition crits, but at the same time you decrease your own chance to crit and increa...

Re: Reviews and opinions of WFRP 4e adventures

Visitor Q: Glad to hear you've enjoyed it. To be honest, my low opinion of If Looks Could Kill is mostly based on how overwritten and hard to follow it is. It could be a fine scenario if someone deleted half the text and reorganised the rest. I generally dislike linear scenarios, so I would have to...

Re: Reviews and opinions of WFRP 4e adventures

During COVID related lockdown in the UK I agreed to run WFRP for people who had never played an rpg before. I rarely use published adventures but for time constraints I decided to run if Looks Could Kill more or less as written with little modfication. I have to say having played it I completly disa...

Re: Informations Rev. Garret Lepper

Over the years I have also tried to find Garret. At University in London (2004ish) I had the privilege of being in a short WFRP campaign he GMd. He also introduced me to the Game of Thrones board game and afterwards I started reading the books. I lost touch after this and similar to yourself no luck...

The players taking a contract to sink a mercenary captain's boat (by a rival mercenary crew) and discovering not only were they pawns in a plot to assassinate an Elector Count but the mercenary captain was an Ogre... hilarity ensued.

Re: How long does it take for Elves to physically and mentally mature?

For me I think there is a comparative element to this. By elf standards an elf may take 80 or 90 years or longer to reach full mental and emotional maturity. By human standards an elf would seem fully mentally and emotionally mature within the same time frame as they do (20-30 years). But that's bec...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

Not sure I buy Hashut being a god of law even within homebrew stuff. Kad'ai fire demons, Bull centaurs, fangs and mass human sacrifice all seem pretty Chaotic to me. Seems like you'd have to write out so much official material there's not much point keeping the name.

Re: Maps - which are you using?

Mostly the MadAlfreds ones. But I sometimes use other ones if they have particular features on them. But in practice after years of worrying about this kind of thing I've found it really doesn't matter. The PCs in my games have rarely actually had access to a map of the Empire (if a detailed accurat...

Re: The hunchback of Altdorf

Good ideas. Thanks a lot. He will be very stealthy indeed, fast and athletic, he must be able to climb roofs and bell towers. I like the possibility of the mutant/hunchback having a Voldemort face somewhere. Give home some more personality or personalities. My first thought was a mutation that only...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

I thought that it meant level in the sense of 'to demolish or raze'. So literally mountain destroyer which admittedly is a little exaggerated for what the Runefang can do but is quite a badass sounding name for a weapon quality of that magnitude. Also if it ignores Armour and TB as I guess it would ...

Re: Wizard skills/feats

Absolutely! Only thing I'd suggest with houserules like this is be collaborative with all the players for a few sessions to see how it beds in. Make sure you talk to the wizard so they know that if its not quite working you'll change it again. With magic in Warhammer this is easily done as you can j...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

If each man of the Empire worship both Ulric and Mórr and other gods of the Old World pantheon, then their religion is polytheistic. If some men of the Empire only worship Ulric, while still believing in the divinity of Mórr and other gods of the Old World pantheon, then, their religion is monolatr...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

I sort of get where some of your arguments are coming from but I still think you are conflating the real world narrative inclusion of the pantheon with how that then plays out in the warhammer world. What I mean by that is that there are two separate areas that seem to be merged but they are differe...

Re: Perilous Sands, an Araby sourcebook for WFRP (2nd)

I downloaded this recently and have been reading through it. Haven't read through enough of it to give a fully review but what I have seen is very impressive. The scope of the bestiary section is fantastic. Well done and more of this kind of thing please! :-)

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

But the real world doesn't provide anything like the same conditions as the Old World to provide a control setting for how a religion would manifest, does it?
