Re: Dark Reapers desing

If you're talking about the Eldar/Aeldari Dark Reapers, I think they look fine and in line with the rest of the army look. Alternate heads for conversions are cheap and easily available if you don't like the look of them. I think they are no better or worse looking in their aesthetic than most Space...

Re: Power creep?

Some scattered thoughts orbiting a central theme, here we go: To start, it depends on your definition of *over*powered. Similar numbers of similar enemies will cease to be a threat in the same perilous sense to a party consisting of a Thug, Hedge Wizard, Herbalist, Merchant when compared to thousand...

Re: In fighting rules

Not as I read it, I believe you are correct. Although your GM may decide to give a circumstantial bonus to wrestling or knife fighting or hand to hand disarm tests if one opponent has In-Fighting and the other does not.

Re: Strong back abd strike to stun

Absolutely, that would be my reading as well. Opposed Melee tests are for when you are comparing your Melee skill against someone else's Melee skill as in you are using your weapon to parry an incoming attack. Once you are defending yourself with something other than a weapon, then it's no longer an...

Re: Strong back abd strike to stun

My reading of it leads me to say no. Strong Back applies to Opposed Strength tests which I understand to mean Strength vs Strength, so something like wrestling or tug-of-war or pushing a recalcitrant mule. The Pummel test is Strength vs Endurance which I would understand to be something else. I'm th...

Re: Resources for adding Steampunk elements?

I believe the suggestion was to look at Main Gauche from the Zweihander system. However, I cannot vouch for that since I have not read it.

Re: Looking for input on greenskin campaign

My own thoughts on greenskins is that it would be quite extraordinary for them to have writing and be literate in a language other than their own. You may be better served to have the villain be Skaven, or even a coven of Dark Elves posing as High/Wood Elves. Partly because if you're trying to strin...

Re: Best adventures

I didn't like Witch's Song, although it's inclusion of some other elements (Dark Elves) instead of cultists, skaven, or greenskins was very refreshing.

Re: Best careers

"Best" is entirely subjective, so it's hard to give you a concrete answer. What are generally considered to be top tier careers (Champion, Wizard Lord, Crime Lord, High Priest, etc) will take so long to accomplish anyways that they're only worthwhile to think about if your campaign is going to go ov...

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 s...

You can't go wrong with the Orb of Slope Detection or the Ring of Detect Fire (range: touch).

Re: Elven Vampires

Exactly. Something gone wrong with experimental High Magic, yada yada yada, elven vampire. I like the idea of having to siphon magic. My initial idea had been that the elf in question would lose it's soul into the Aethyr (been reading a lot of 40k lore and also Retribution of Scyrah lore). The elven...

Elven Vampires

Let me preface this: Yes, I am aware that according to strict canon, Warhammer Elves are immune to the Curse of Nagash. With that said.... :evil: ....What if it's just called the Curse of Nagash, because Nagash was the first one to try and recreate-at-will and harness what had previously been a part...

Re: Advice for getting the WFRP tone right for scenarios?

I'm not sure about "Adventures take place in the shadows" While some (possibly even the majority) do, there are some that by necessity are either not in the Shadows or involve major characters supplanting each other and therefore definitionally "not in the shadows".

Re: Beasts in Velvet conversion

I don't know that anybody has, but it would seem to be relatively straightforward. C7 released a conversion guide for past editions, while it works less well for monsters, it does work pretty well for PCs (and NPCs).

Re: The Empire: From Civil Strife to the Storm

In all of the versions of TEW, has any thought ever been given to the impact on other nations? Perhaps with the exposure of the changelings/civil war, other countries might try and exploit the situation such as Tilea or Brettonia or even Ulthuan? Might make for an interesting epilogue, especially si...

Campaign help, setting the mood for Athel Loren/Wild Hunt

I am starting to outline my next campaign part of which will involve The Wild Hunt and Athel Loren in central roles.

Can anybody recommend any inspirational movies/books/shows/etc to help me get a feel for the mood?

Thanks,

Re: Speaking with and summoning the dead

Not really. I would just make up something, probably either a religious or magical ritual.

The 2e book Realms of Sorcery and/or Tome of Salvation can probably provide some good inspiration.
