Re: Mutation and Ableism

There was a Witchhunter trilogy of novels from GW that had some useful elements. The main character wasn't a softie, but also seemed driven to do his job correctly. A few times he seemed harsh to the reader, but never didn't make sense for the character and way chaos is presented in the setting. It...

Re: Mutation and Ableism

Perhaps there is a Church of Sigmar (or Shallaya) ritual (requiring a priest of sufficient ability, a quest in and of itself, then payment, etc) that can determine whether or not a deformity bears the taint of chaos or not. And perhaps that person can be given a certified letter from a priest that ...

Re: Mutation and Ableism

I would suggest an element of uncertainty is always possibly best. In the not so great stories about Konrad, the hero had different coloured eyes: is that a Chaotic mutation? It seemed it was but no one called in witchhunters. In a world where there are people who can cast magic but still live with...

Re: Mutation and Ableism

to the best of my understanding, mutant trials are actually pretty informal, and handled by witch hunters as it comes up. so there's probably some general guidelines that might be in that witch hunter's handbook they put out once, but nothing set in stone and those witch hunters are anotoriously un...

Re: Elven Vampires

Morathi and Hellebron have Countess Bathory vibes, using soul energy from blood sacrifice to maintain their youthful appearances. There was also a corrupted wood elf in the Orion novels who kept prisoners in a giant wicker cage to harvest their soul energies.

Re: Mutation and Ableism

this is assuming that there's some agreement on what counts as a mutation, as opposed to having one village where they beleive crimson locks is a sign of chaos and are all normal, dark-haired folk, then another villiage a few miles down the road where everyone's got red hair and sees children born ...

That's the other mutant who pops up in Book 2. Vargr Breughel is the dwarf and is the one who they name the new theatre after.
Ah right, the stage manager from Drachenfels who resents being seen as a Dwarf.

Re: Mutation and Ableism

I remember re-reading the old Jack Yeovil Warhammer novels and there being a dwarf that works for Detlef's theatre company. That is, a human with dwarfism. I guess people just regard him as a Dwarf with a capital D. Good point, although he spent most of his time hiding under the theatre IIRC. I rec...

Re: Mutation and Ableism

After Storm of Chaos people would be less tolerant for mutations even if it not even conected to Chaos but there are reasons for that. Its a matter of perspective how dark You want Your world to be. Would the average Imperial citizen even be able to recognise the difference between a congenital dis...

Mutation and Ableism

Any ideas for adapting the usual mutant tropes to modern sensibilities, while still adhering to WFB8e Chaos canon? Do NPCs in your game distinguish between congenital disorders (e.g. extra finger, clubfoot) and Chaos mutation? Are 'gifted children' subject to discrimination, and if so, how are they ...

Re: Any chance of a Soulbound subforum?

I'm not keen on 32mm miniatures either, despite the extra level of detail that could be produced at that scale, because they take up so much more room than 28mm miniatures. (This is quite apart from many miniatures that are described as 32mm scale not actually being of a consistant scale, being 'he...

Re: Any chance of a Soulbound subforum?

32 mm scale is annoying. I would play Old World if I could use my old WFB armies, but I'm not going to start over from scratch.

Re: Any chance of a Soulbound subforum?

The destruction of the Fantasy setting doesn't bother me now as much as it did originally, because GW has been very supportive of licensed properties. In fact, I'd wager the success of Total War: Warhammer demonstrated to GW how popular the Fantasy setting really is. People just didn't want to play ...

Re: WFRP4's Altdorf vs. WFRP2's Altdorf

The most significant change for SoA would be the locations of the Colleges of Magic, which are no longer scattered around the city but instead grouped together in a single district. Otherwise some of the SoA locations are given even more detail in the Altdorf book.

I doubt that I'll be able to spend $2K+ on an overseas trip this year, and probably won't have the vaccine by August. Remaining hopeful for 2022 though.

Re: The Timeline and after the End Times

Equally if 1 million of the most hardcore Choas marauders, mutants and sorcerers storm out of the Chaos waste into the Empire and 99% get driven off or killed that still leaves 10,000 trapsing around the Forests starting cults and causing trouble. These aren't your average emo Altdorf student dabbl...

Re: The Timeline and after the End Times

Interesting idea advancing the timeline 15 years after the Storm of Chaos. Was the SoC just a failed Chaos incursion or was it the first stage of a long, protracted End Times event? Although the horrific forces of Chaos have been driven back to the Northern Wastes or skulked back to the depths of th...

Yeah, although I think that Cathay might draw in more players than the Southern Realms would. Still, a Tilea based on mercenary armies, a Border Princes which could perhaps be a made to essentially thrive in anarchy and disorder? And something for Estalia but I know to little on what to suggest. :(...
