Re: LIBER INFECTUS - An Unusual Note?

I'm running Horror of Hugeldal next week and can't seem to find the "Handout: An Unusual Note" mentioned on p. 43. I am admittedly pretty dense, so is it there and I'm just not seeing it? Is it not in the module? Or is it just not reproduced digitally? A lot of the handouts for 3e adventures only c...

Re: Viydagg Retcon/Return

No problem. I've actually never read the Flashman novels, but since that's who Ciaphas Cain always seems to get compared to, maybe I should. There's also a bit of a Blackadder vibe to the stories too.

"Brunner Does A Runner!" would have been a better title.

Actually, I'd enjoy reading any Black Library series where the hero deals with conflict by legging it.
It's 40k rather than Warhammer, but are you aware of Ciaphas Cain? That's his go-to plan (not that it ever works).

Re: What is the right of eagrel?

Yeah, something like this certainly suits my own personal view of the Empire. There are enough female electors (at least in WFRP1) that the Empire seems to be more egalitarian than the real world Holy Roman Empire, whether or not you have a specific concept to explain it.

Re: What is the right of eagrel?

Yes, it seems like the writers of Midgard made up the term "eagrel". Short of contacting Tim Eccles directly (if that's possible), I don't think you'll find a definitive answer to your other question. Taken literally from what little there is, I would say "the right of eagrel" is something a woman c...

Re: What is the right of eagrel?

Gleichstellen = to treat as equal, so the idea of applying that term to a woman being legally declared a man seems right. But as for "eagrel", I also haven't been able to find anything other than the Midgard reference (although I've only done a very brief search. Given that the "eagrel women" are wo...

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

Well look at that, another 3e adventure (albeit fan-written) reworked for 4e!

Re: Hero's Call: Cards, no books

The pdfs for 3e aren't currently (legally) available. Some of the cards from Hero's Call will be more useful than others without the book. A lot of them are epic action and talent cards, which you can use as is, although you'll be missing the explanation of Skill Mastery (this was reprinted in the P...

Not finding any such public server. Meh, would have been curious to argue or hear the devs point of view.
Here you go: https://discord.gg/Na7KFSzrpQ

I don't go in the 4e sections though, so I'm not sure if the devs are still there.

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

Interestingly, Cubicle 7 recently released a free PDF guide to convert between editions. It included 1st, 2nd and 4th, but not 3rd. This might suggest they think the same, or at the very least feel that their time can be more efficiently spent elsewhere. I've skimmed through a couple of adventures ...

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

Because 2e was published in book format, I was able to go to a local shop and flip through a book and see if it was any good and then (usually) buy it. With 3e being released in shrink wrapped boxes (presumably to provide a single vessel to hold all the tokens, cardboard punch sheets, and adventure...

Re: Almarr???

From the place names, it sounds like the author may have been using a pre-WFRP1 conception of the Old World, when things were a bit less clearly defined. Middleton in particular is similar to the sorts of place names used in the WFB2 supplement Blood on the Streets : set in 'The Riding' with settlem...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

Did it? The first publication that seem to diverge from Empire in Flames is Games Workshop's Warhammer Armies: The Empire (WFB6, 2000): "It is the year 2520 of the Imperial Calendar, and Karl Franz is the ruling Emperor." Flame's Death's Dark Shadow and Descartes's Pour la gloire d'Ulric were in li...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

Yes, alternative SoC is probably a good way to look at it. But the point is that Archaon's ET invasion takes a different course to his SoC invasion, and involved different leaders of Chaos forces. Likewise, the activities of some of the Imperial leaders are different (e.g. Volkmar going to Sylvannia...

Re: What and where is Zaiyon?

It's always possible the Zaiyon/Zion resemblance is a coincidence, and we are once again "fooled by randomness" (or at least arbitrariness). Whatever the reason behind including it was, the Zion/Zaiyon resemblance must have been intentional. The verse on the DotR handout is modified from Father Bre...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

My preferred fix for the personality change of Boris Todbringer from 1E to 2E is simple: in the "canonical" timeline, Wasmeier's plot was successful and the Graf was actually replaced by an imposter. Thus they seem like very different people for the simple reason that they are different people. I s...

Re: Enemy Within Updates (plus other stuff)

This is the crux of it for me - we can draw on the locations and NPCs that the End Times, Storm of Chaos, Dark Shadows, Nemesis Crown, Storm of Magic, Lustria Campaign etc. gave us. But I don't see the point in ending the world for players and GMs. But I think an optional setting sourcebook for cam...
