Re: Upstart GM planning to run a Skaven Campaign set in the Old World.

Sounds cool!

But what are we supposed to discuss in this topic?

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

Interesting take on atheism in a polytheistic society but I personally feel that you're going to heavily into a monothesistic view when describing the opposition to atheism. References to a "Godly Order" makes little sense with no clear big cheese in the pantheon. I think that a fear the atheists wi...

Re: Sillyhammer

Grail pilgrims as a kind of fotball fan clubs for their chosen grail knights, complete with hooligan behavior and rivalries with other bands of grail pilgrims And once our group, I wasn't the GM, went to Würtbad in Stirland to spend an evening watching "Stirland Pro Wrestling" games. Pretty fun sess...

Re: Custom minor deity concept: Pharos, God of the Dark Light

Second version of Pharos, God of the Dark Light. I've taken your comments into account and tried to work them into my vision for the god and his cult. EDITED: Fixed some language errors.

Re: Custom minor deity concept: Pharos, God of the Dark Light

I should note that future versions will probably have Pharos be a bit harsher as I told my GM I intended for him to be a fairly harsh god, but not outlawed or evil like Ahalt or Gundred. ***** I like the dark light concept. I think the 'Light and Dark' miracle should offer an improved chance of noti...

Custom minor deity concept: Pharos, God of the Dark Light

This is a little something I proposed to a GM in our group. When we try the Enemy Within to 4th edition I wanted to play a character associated with this minor cult. I'm throwing it up here for some feedback before I submi a final version to the GM for approval. Pharos https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

Just a thought to add to all the interesting points all of you made: Comparing to real world gods makes sense, but there is a big difference: in the old world you can assume these deities exist in some way. Miracles and the Warhammer rules prove it. In the real world we do not have that strong argu...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

I mostly agree with Capitaneus Fractus in his points, although I would add that most species, cultures etc. probably have a few divine actors of their own to turn to in addtion to the gods that are worshipped across the lines. In addition I don't see why pretty much every god could not have lax, mod...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

Hi everybody, we do not have many examples of real societies that would be as technologically and culturally advanced as the Empire and practice polytheism in some of its major variants, so the question of realism might be invalid from the very start. However, when one looks at the Imperial pantheo...

Re: Guild membership

As I said, I have a ton more on guilds in WFRP, including detailed systems on the economics, training, careers, etc. If there is interest, I could write it up in future. I would love for some more material on guilds. And perhaps even on criminal organisations. In fact, especially on criminal organi...

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

Fair enough, you know your group a lot better than we do. 🙂 If I were to go this route myself, I’d be inclined to have all the PCs be members of one specific Cult (e.g. you’re all Yellow Fang, or all worshippers of Ahalt) to bind them more closely together, but YMMV. This is certainly a possibility...

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

[Even in "Enemy Within" so far we've had one Khorne cultist, one Slaanesh cultist and a Chaos Dwarf and the party didn't fall apart and we didn't indulge in random acts of "Stupid Evil" activity. We did even have the Khorne and Slaanesh cultist in the same party, along with a zealous Sigmarite knig...

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

I think that a party such as you are advocating would collapse fairly quickly, as Herr Arnulfe predicts. Theft, torture and murder pale quite quickly - I believe cartoony type villains have a chance to last longer as PCs, such as Skaven or Goblinoids. Having said that, one could take each player as...

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

Based on my experiences playing evil campaigns, TEW would be far too long for a thought experiment. Most of the satisfaction of playing an evil PC comes from entertaining the other players with your interpretation. Players don't tend to derive much enjoyment from committing evil acts in-game. Based...

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

You seem to have divided the Empire into 'forces of Order' and 'forces of Chaos', of which i'd say (even in fourth edition) the majority of the Empire's populace, including the sample PCs given in the original TEW, do not belong to. Further, in so far as they exist, the 'forces of Order' (aka Solka...

If they succeed, they risk bringing more witch hunters to the area (who might accidentally find/ex...
