Re: Comparison with Zweihander

Thanks Karanthir! The idea I had about Fox was that he tried to make his wfrp-homemade-clone when FFG was no more supporting the line and maybe he tried to acquire license from GW. C7 did it instead and I've always thought (from comments in some forum or blog I can't recall) that he tried to slip i...

Re: Comparison with Zweihander

The gods in Zweihander don't have names as such. They have titles instead. So not-Sigmar is The God Emperor, not-Ulric is The Winter King, not-Shallya is The Martyr, etc. I presume they are supposed to represent 'universal concepts' to which you can add your own names for your setting. My understand...

Re: Roadwardens and pistols

i'm pretty sure the reason is because pistols can be used one-handed and carried easily, so roadwardens can draw up ahd be ready to shoot without having to get out and steady a big two-handed crossbow. besides, maybe they don't own them? what if it's supplied by the state and they're expected to pa...

Re: Comparison with Zweihander

For all the people claiming that Warhammer/GW is "just inspiration" and Zweihander is "theft", bear in mind that Michael Moorcock invented the Chaos Star and has never received a penny from GW (or any of the many, many others who have used it). They didn't just "file the numbers off", they literally...

Re: Combat example

Fair comment regarding less experienced GMs and the need to have some intuition about how to set the level correctly and lack of guidance. You don’t have to do it in details for all creatures. Just the special ones in my experience. If you're doing guidance, yeah, just a few examples is fine. If yo...

Re: WFRP3 Resources

Ok, everything has a link now (finally found a couple of missing fan scenarios). Added the Gong Farmer career by Graeme Davis*. Always on the look out for additional resources, so let me know if you find anything not on the list! *Just in case he doesn't update the blog post, you need to make a coup...

Re: Combat example

Ok, read this you lazy GMs 😀 complaining on the bestiary: https://lawhammer.blogspot.com/2020/01/trolls-trolls-trolls-trolls.html?m=1 Except this isn't really advice for lazy GMs - it's justification for lazy games design (framed as advice for "lazy" GMs). This is kind of a separate topic, so I'll ...

Re: Troll a la Morceaux: A Warhammer Recipe

Excellent stuff! I'm sure there must be at least one halfling chef who's attempted this only to have it go horribly wrong!

(But just to note, there's some sort of error with the URL: it's auto-inserting "www.windsofchaos.com/forum/" at the beginning, which leads to a 404 error.)

Ah cool. It's always interesting to read these sorts of things. And I have a soft spot for the old 40k Illuminati/Sensei stuff too.

Re: Enemy In Shadows Companion Available

I'm not going to get into a discussion about what's canon and what's not. After 30+ years everyone has their own version of the canon and what sources they accept as canonical, and even people who agree on the broad strokes will probably disagree on specific details. The thing with Boxtree and WFRP1...

Re: Missing: Pamphlet about mutants are people too!

Otto's Printworks is in Apocrypha 2, but there doesn't seem to be a pro-mutant pamphlet - just an anti-mutant one reacting to the emperor's proclamation.

Re: Enemy In Shadows Companion Available

As far as I can tell, none of the official WFRP or WFB publications (not counting Boxtree or Black Library) have ever listed a date of death for Karl-Franz's father. In fact, almost all the timelines skip directly from the accession of Wilhelm III to the accession of Karl-Franz. But C7 have explicit...

Re: Roughs Nights and Hard Days Impressions/Review

They are definitely different adventures that share the same name and happen to be set in Nuln (hence Emmanuelle von Liebewitz appearing in both). Maybe Graeme Davis was inspired by the earlier adventure for RNaHD, but he was adamant that 'A Night at the Opera' was a new adventure. Sounds like it's ...

Re: The Enemy Within Remixed, Season 2: Death on the Reik (campaign report)

I've spent the last few weeks reading your blog after meaning to get round to it for a while, and finally got caught up yesterday. Really enjoying the session reports, and I like your version of the Warhammer world a lot. Sounds like you're all having a lot of fun with the campaign!
