Re: Career Specific Traits Homebrew

It's been a while, so someone please correct me if necessesary, but to "flip" the dice is to reverse the numbers. "Flip to fail" would be to take the 38 that you rolled and treat it as a 83 if that would make your fail. "Flip to succeed" is the opposite.

Re: Healing during combat

To assess a wound, dig a bandage out of a pouch/pocket, apply the bandage, and get the recipient ready to take other actions? Would take at least 30 seconds to a minute. My group puts rounds at 20-30 seconds each (not 10), which lines up nicely at 2-3 rounds for a heal test (one feels too short, 4+ ...

Re: Altdorf: Crown of the Empire

C7's page lists a section about life in Altdorf for non-humans, I'm really curious about that, the rest I'm more ambivalent about.

Re: Your best WFRP experiencce?

The first time I got to run a group of players through an adventure that I wrote.

I'm trying to write it out for sharing here, but I can't seem to agree on a format that I like that would be helpful to the reader.

Re: How long does it take for Elves to physically and mentally mature?

I would add in a third category: Emotionally Mature. Here's how I would break it down: Physically Mature: Fullness of bodily growth and sexually capable of reproduction and generally surviving gestating a baby to term (for females), in humans it's about 15-18. For elves, I would say it's about 18-20...

Re: Maps - which are you using?

As the GM, you can make the current state of the Empire whatever you want. If that's not palatable for you, then just pick a map and declare it to be authoritative by GM fiat. I said that settlements disappearing/appearing/renaming is a reason for maps to be out of sync. So what's happening in TEW i...

Re: Maps - which are you using?

One idea would be that towns can re-name themselves. Perhaps they want to 'rebrand' themselves to avoid association with past events, or because another town in another province has become associated with some misdeed (Nope! We're not *that* Wurlitz! This is Peshtigo). Perhaps through the trifecta o...

Re: The hunchback of Altdorf

A hunch is easily passable as a natural deformity, so it's a good way to hide a mutation. If you want to step it up a bit, take a page from Total Recall, and have your hunchback be like Cuato with a separate, sentient being growing out of his body.

Re: High Elf resistances

No. I don't remember where I read it, but there was a chart that you could roll on to see what sort of corruption you got, and elves were 100% Mental, meaning that they wouldn't mutate physically (tentacles, scales, wierd eyes), but rather an elf would develop an insanity.

I have some rough story beats planned out, but if *you* were playing in a military campaign, what would be a situation or scenario that would make you feel disappointed if it were left out?

Re: 4e Ingredients for Petty Magic

I would just say that you can't use Ingredients for Petty Magic since Petty spells are too general for specific ingredients, or to put it another way "you get what you pay for" ;).

Empire Military Organization

I am planning out my next campaign and starting to get into some of the details. Can anybody point me in the direction of some resources as to how WFRP-Comparable armies were organized? I could do a straight lift from modern armies with ranks E1-E9 W1-W5 O1-O10 but that seems both needlessly complex...

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...
