Re: Richard Halliwell

He more or less wrote the rules for the first edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battle, so yes he was pretty important.

Also he did Space Hulk, which I played a lot.

Re: Reviews and opinions of WFRP 4e adventures

Grey Mountain Gold So, I grabbed an adventure pretty much at random, and go 'Grey Mountain Gold'. A PDF that costs £5 (which strikes my Yorkshire heart as somewhat pricey) but is also available as part of Ubersreik Adventures vol II. Its 17-pages long, including adverts. Given the reviews MadMarkus...

Re: Monuments of the Reikland

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 4e, the content is fairly edition-neutral, with only a few rules specific to the latest iteration. I am late to the party, but yes - this is excellent work. I really en...

Re: Reviews and opinions of WFRP 4e adventures

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 'miserable and hopeless'. yeah, i think that's a very good point. I like Warhammer to be grim (I'm a northerner, what do you expect)...

Re: Reviews and opinions of WFRP 4e adventures

It's interesting that you say that - I'd actually identify the beginning of that 'blood, shit and misery' approach to James Wallis and Hogshead Publishing, which would technically still be 1st edition. I think the Oldenhaller Contract has a pretty good claim on being the start of it, and that's fro...

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?

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 t...

Re: Any canon examples of characters using both might and magic?

As well as the Elf Ranger I mentioned above, another idea (although you would need to rework it a lot i suspect) is they way Defenders of the Forest at Liber Fanatica handled Wardancers, where they changed to Dances to spells. This is all pretty weak in terms of suggestions but I am really strugglin...

Re: Any canon examples of characters using both might and magic?

This is hard to answer tbh. Fiction tends not to make this distinction as fiction does not measure time in rounds in the first place. In first edition WFRP I do not believe this is possible, by anyone. In second edition WFRP Dart (and indeed Fire Ball) are half actions so can be combined with a Stan...

Re: Fan made?

Good catch. TBH that page probably has all the information in Dreadfleet anyway, I don't get the impression it was particularly in depth? Although the possible Nagash connection is quite interesting. Although we are possibly getting away from the main point, if you need magical construct-type things...

Re: Fan made?

Elementals (in the traditional sense of fire, water, air, earth) are part of Arabyan magic, at least as per the Arabyan character in Dreadfleet who can summon them. I don't think there's ever been an official source on Araby and how their magic works though. I think those are Sea Nymphs, Tempest Dj...

Re: Fan made?

Elementals last appeared for Warhammer Fantasy Battle in Storm of Magic which I think was published in 2010.

By Storm of Magic I obviously meant to write Monstrous Arcanum of 2012.

It may be worth bearing in mind that the Pistol is not even the most expensive trapping the roadwarden requires, the Light warhorse is worth far more.
