Re: Entering a Class, Does It Stick?

My personal take is that a PC is eligible for any downtime option for his current career or any past careers.

Just because you don't do that any more, doesn't mean you can't do it any longer.

Re: Entering a Class, Does It Stick?

Good question. I would say yes, RAW. Personally, I do not charge my players that extra XP penalty for switching classes. I am in the process of a re-imagined career web for 4e, we'll see if anything ever comes of it.

Re: High Elf game suggestions?

Your elf apprentice is fresh from Ulthuan? You could impose a small penalty that wears off over time when surrounded by unfamiliar architechture (particularly if they are underground). Or when surrounded by large noisy crowds (sensory overload). Let's imagine that in Altdorf, when the Temple of Sigm...

Re: [Help Needed] Ritual Magic - lore of Metal (WFRP2)

You don't need to *justify* it mechanically, you just need to make it *plausible*. I think you've already done the lion's share of that work. You just have to set a difficulty for this. Why don't retired (or failed) Gold Wizards set up shop just creating new limbs for people? What would it take for ...

Re: [Help Needed] Ritual Magic - lore of Metal (WFRP2)

So normally, I would say "Go talk to your GM." ....but you already did that. Well done. ...And your GM said yes! Fantastic! ...So what's the problem? If your question is "Can I use The Body Gilded to get my hand back." The answer is RAW, no, you cannot. It will be gold, but still paralyzed. It sound...

I found this http://fabledlands.blogspot.com/2016/12 ... relic.html
I don't know if that's the same thing that Wolf had in mind. I have only skimmed the intro as far as content (but I plan to do so sometime this week).

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

the people in the former camp ((Disliking the mechanical elements -Hyarion)) - during the time of 3e's publication - weren't rushing to praise the adventures, Because 2e was published in book format, I was able to go to a local shop and flip through a book and see if it was any good and then (usual...

Re: Channeling and Moving

Here's how I ruled the issue when it came up with my group. 1) When you start channeling, you must state what you are channeling towards (IE Shroud of Invisibility) and may not change what spell you are casting. Essentially, you are not *just* drawing in the winds of magic, you are casting the spell...

Re: Every. WFRP. Scenario. Ever!

The Howling Man as well as The Hope (and Madness) Diamond.

If I can get my act together, I hope to write out the full campaign from which I took The Howling Man, but we'll see.

And a magic book, and some other stuff, including possibly Gav Thorpe writing some kinda non-Empirey seafaring Elf/Marienburg/Ulthuan/epic voyage.

Some day.

I believe it's scheduled for sometime just before the next Mayan calendar rollover (so it will come out sometime after that).

Re: Best object quests

You could probably get a lot of good mileage out of various episodes of Star Trek which revolve around running out of fuel, finding scientists in hiding, parts for a ship, missing colonists, etc. If you want a heist theme, you could look at Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home. If you want more of a combat ...

Re: Lore of Life

That's quite reasonable. I'd probably either move Healing Hand to the Lore of Life and/or allow Earthblood to also apply to the caster.

1) Priests of any religion can cast Petty Magic (Divine) Blessing of Healing. 2) Wizards of the Light College can cast Healing of Hysh 3) Shallayan Priests specifically can cast Cure Wounds 4) Priests of Sigmar can cast Healing Hand. Making healing too common would obviate the need for Barber Surgeo...

Nice ones, KnightOfTheLady, Orin, and Hallucyon. Which reminds me, if the players ever need a lawyer, there's always the Law Offices of Dewey, Cheatum, and Howe.

All good drama/action/thrillers make good use of lighter elements to help relieve tension before building it back up, good writers do the same thing. One of the things that makes Warhammer so delightful is that it includes those bits of whimsy and doesn't take itself too seriously. What are some thi...
