Re: Sillyhammer

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.

Sillyhammer

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...

Re: How to play kid characters

Disclaimer, I am not familiar with Stranger Things, so I'm afraid that's not much help for me to frame my thoughts, my deep apologies in advance if I'm not understanding something. Question 1) Are you restricting races to humans only? --How different races age/mature will be a big factor in this. Qu...

That's the name of it, The WFRP Companion. The cover has a picture of a ship being torn apart by a squid-like thing.

Re: Homage to Chuck

I'll second that!

Regardless of Facebook groups (I've seen a few names that I can attach to usernames), and Reddit, it's forums like StS and WindsOfChaos that will always be home for me. A deep and heartfelt THANK YOU to Chuck.

Re: Dreams in Glas - Adventure in planning

1) To make the investigation more interesting, you could add a few red herrings, like interviewing the midwife who didn't notice anything mutation with the baby in question, but did notice some strange things with another family who also gave birth on the same day. 2) Add lots of things that *can* s...

Re: Barge rules

You can have other characters roll perception to see whether they spot rocks/logs below the water. Ballistic Skill (or other) to throw ropes around trees to tie off at night. Navigation tests to know whether to take the right or left fork in the river. Also bear in mind that travel during the night ...

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

To the members of the Honorable and Fraternal Order of the Extremely Irate Water Buffalo, a very sophisticated Chaos cult, the Purple Hand is nothing but a bunch of amateurish hacks who risk too much. If they succeed, they risk bringing more witch hunters to the area (who might accidentally find/exp...

Re: Hello from Greece

Welcome!

If Advantage has you that worried, there are plenty of good solutions that aren't very difficult or intrusive that have been presented here. Which one works for you will, I guess, depend on what exactly has you worried with Advantage?

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

I have no qualms about changing written source material to in order to set the tone that I want in the setting that I want to tell the story that I want with the group that I have. As I suspect that many WFRP GMs already do with the way that Bretonnia, Norsca, Chaos Cults, etc have changed over succ...

Re: Campaign coming to a close ...

I hope you're able to wrap it up to your satisfaction!

Will you do anything particular to help keep the two parties separate? Or to help the players get in one frame of mind rather than the other?

Re: 2nd -> 4th ed. preparation.

If my players are in a scene where they are trying to sneak or infiltrate, then the difference between move and run is the penalty to move silently/hide/ or other related types.

Re: Half-Elves in first edition Old World

I was thinking of using an Spy half elf who is hunted by other elves for some misdeed ( in the eyes of the elves but not humans/PC:s ). A spy? who were they spying on? Why? If they're spying on other elves for other elves, why should humans PCs get involved? If they're spying on humans for elves, w...
