Re: Second Sight - Intuition or Perception?

Glorthindel, really good distinctions between Perception/Intuition. I'll start incorporating them as well.

Re: Arcane Colleges of Altdorf - Help me reconcile

A. Institutionally, they are located in Altdorf, but they have other satellite outposts in Middenheim (and elsewhere) to take in Apprentices and at least prevent them from killing themselves (or getting lynched). One appropriate analogy would be foreign colonies. London has always been the seat of t...

Re: Investigations

Given that it's a "critical path" to the adventure, I would communicate to the players and then require that they be specific about where they're looking. Just walking into the room and saying "I want to look around" would only reveal what is out in the open. Alternatively, as a compromise, you coul...

Old World Medicinals

In and amidst my many half finished projects, I am trying to outline the next chapter of my campaign which I intend to be an adaptation of Philip K Dick's book Ubik. Obviously an aerosol spray is out of the question for The Old World (is it? Hmmm) but what other forms could a medicinal take that wou...

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...
