Re: Cathay sourcebook?

Hi again, Would anyone know where to get the Cathay sourcebook which was floating around some years ago? Thank you. If you mean the draft of Tetsubo (which was for Yamato, a Nippon equivalent, rather than Cathay), the authors have removed it from download, as there is a commercial version being pro...

Re: Contradiction?

So what do you think about my clarification (for my benefit). Like, this is what I've type up in my FAQ / Clarification document for future reference. " If you have the required XP, you can change career whenever you want. That said, it isn’t just about paying the XP, the change of career must make...

Re: Contradiction?

As i read it the rule, or guideline, as you will, is that a character does need to complete their career in order to choose one of their career exits. (Though i take Gideon's point that this isn't quite explicit i think it was the intent.) Graeme Davis was explicit in 'Onwards and Upwards' that tha...

Re: Contradiction?

It seems clear to me that the idea was to allow player characters to change career if the opportunity presented itself in the course of the adventure and if it made sense that the player character could take on that career.... I think this is a really important point. Regardless of what the rules s...

Re: House Rules

Here is an updated list of my quick-and-dirty fixes for WFRP1:  Character generation The starting profiles and skills are very unbalanced. I don't think they should be completely evened out, but as they stand they are extreme. My solution is to modify starting profiles as follows:  - Elves: WS-10, B...

Re: Contradiction?

There's definitely contradictions here and quite a few too. I think the rules are actually pretty consistent, though they might not immediately seem that way, and they certainly could have been expressed more clearly. Page 91 "...characters are not allowed to change careers during a session of play...

Re: Contradiction?

This was explained by Graeme Davis in ‘Onwards and Upwards’ in White Dwarf 89: “In some cases, you have to complete the career (ie take every advance form the advance scheme and acquire all the listed skills). In others you don’t have to stay in a career any longer than it takes you to earn the 100 ...

Mike Brunton has passed away

It has been announced in a few other places, but not yet here, as far as I can see. Veteran WFRP writer Mike Brunton died suddenly last week. For those who do not know him Mike was a major figure in WFRP's first edition. He was often the fixer who got difficult projects back on track and did the dir...

Re: The Enemy Within to come...

I also find it strange that the Companion covers Middenland and a separate source book will contain Middenheim. I wonder if they've suffered a bad case of feature creep. Personally I think separate city books is a good idea. There didn't seem to be much room to expand the original Power Behind the ...

Re: Enemy Within Volume Three announced!

Seems a bit early to be announcing this honestly. wonder what their goal is.... The post doesn't actually seem to be a product announcement, but just a preview of the cover art. That's probably why details are sparse. There are a couple of interesting nuggets, though: 1. "This adventure is signific...

Re: Enemy With Shadows Details

So the link, as weak as it was, was present before James Wallis's Carrion up the Reik. Yes, as I mentioned above, there was a suggestion to play The Enemy Within after The Oldenhaller Contract, but there were no narrative links between the two before Carrion Up the Reik; and The Oldenhaller Contrac...

I have an incomplete write-up of a reworking of 'The Oldenhaller Contract'. I was at some point going to finish it off and post it on my blog (under the title 'The Oldenhaller Amendment'). Unfortunately it'll be a long while before I get round to finishing it, but I'll try to dig out what I have for...

Loving the cover artwork, the Companion is very reminiscent of Ian Miller.
Yes, it's a reworking of an Ian Miller drawing from Shadows Over Bögenhafen.

1. The Oldenhaller Contract has to my knowledge never been part of The Enemy Within campaign. The original GW printing ending the adventure with a suggestion to follow it up with The Enemy Within, but that was just an invitation to buy GW's products, not an implication that they were part of the sam...
