Re: Enemy In Shadows Companion Available

The p[age numbering is a bit of mess, in the contents at least. I've let them know.

Re: Combat example

Has that 4.5 version been collected anywhere? I would be curious to see how different is Law's vision from the published wfrp4. As far as i'm aware Andy Law is putting all his WFRP 4th edition house rules on his 'Lawhammer' blog, and there have been five such posts so far, which are: http://lawhamm...

Re: Enemy In Shadows Companion Available

I took a look at the Enemy In Shadows Companion update on DriveThruRPG and there are two versions updated on 20201024 that i can see. The first is simply entitled "WFRP_Fourth_Edition_Ene...n_Shadows_Companion.pdf" and as far as i can tell, taking a very brief look at it, there are perhaps only mino...

Re: Enemy In Shadows Companion Available

I've had a quick flick through of the companion and i'm quite pleased by what i've seen, not least the choice to keep things as they were originally intended or written (in at least one case) rather than keep up with some other more recent version of the Warhammer Fantasy universe. I think it bodes...

Re: Combat example

I'm not against having a system for building NPCs from scratch (with both 'quick' and 'full' variants) at all, and indeed i'd very much like one, but it seems to me that this would be quite a substantial volume that wouldn't fit into the core rule book. It seems to me that by trying to squeeze such ...

Re: Comparison with Zweihander

It's not like Warhammer is without its influences. File off the copyrighted material from any one part of Warhammer and you might be hard pressed to say if Warhammer were the primary influence, or if Warhammer's infuences were the primary influence. Do you really want me to re-open that chapter and...

Re: Combat example

Another thing to consider is if not C7 then who will take the mantle of the Old World? Not that i don't want a company such as Cubicle 7 to produce official material for WFRP, but i think there would be quite a lot of people who would produce a lot of material for WFRP if Games Workshop hadn't (as ...

Broadly speaking, from what i have listened to and watched, i think your description of realistic combat is correct. I think i'd love to have this in an RPG, at least as the baseline.

Re: The Twin Tailed.

Continuing with the tangent subject of the twin tailed comet/orb as a symbol of chaos, i notice that @gideon has just posted a blog post: TOPOS: SYMBOL OF CHAOS , at the bottom of which is an "Unpublished illustration of Chaos symbols, by Martin McKenna, for The Enemy Within (1986)". One of the symb...

Re: The Twin Tailed.

I did some web searching. There is a history of Archaon here: https://warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Archaon . Note the quote on that page that "Archaon was originally known as Diederick Kastner, a highly devout and zealous Templar of the Twin-Tailed Comet". There is also a relevant webpage on the...

Re: The Twin Tailed.

There is another twist. If you read the description of Sigmar in The Enemy Within , a twin-tailed comet is not mentioned as one of his symbols! The text says: “The cult of Sigmar is usually associated with two symbols: a stylised Dwarven Warhammer, and an octagon formed by two superimposed squares....

Re: The Twin Tailed.

The plot thickens. The similarity can be exaggerated or minimised depending on the particulars of how both symbols are drawn, but both symbols are a circle with two 'squiggly lines' emanating away from one half of that circle. I can't remember where i saw it now, but i have seen Tzeentch's symbol do...

Re: The Twin Tailed.

I didn't buy into the dev. diary so no, alas, i have not had the opportunity to read Graeme Davis' pulled intro. (This is the first thing i've come across that would tempt me into buying the special edition with the dev. diaries.) I suspect the razor is likely to cut true in this case, but i'm more ...

The Twin Tailed.

It occurred to me that i've never, to my recollection, seen mention of the similarity between Tzeentch's twin tailed symbol and Sigmar's twin tailed comet. Has this ever been discussed or used before? Is there any official mention of the similarity? It came to mind because i've just read Phil Gallag...

Re: Combat example

To be clear @CapnZapp, is this example of play an example of how combat should go, or an example of how combat shouldn't go?
