Re: Dreams in Glas - Adventure in planning

1) To make the investigation more interesting, you could add a few red herrings, like interviewing the midwife who didn't notice anything mutation with the baby in question, but did notice some strange things with another family who also gave birth on the same day. 2) Add lots of things that *can* s...

Re: Barge rules

You can have other characters roll perception to see whether they spot rocks/logs below the water. Ballistic Skill (or other) to throw ropes around trees to tie off at night. Navigation tests to know whether to take the right or left fork in the river. Also bear in mind that travel during the night ...

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

To the members of the Honorable and Fraternal Order of the Extremely Irate Water Buffalo, a very sophisticated Chaos cult, the Purple Hand is nothing but a bunch of amateurish hacks who risk too much. If they succeed, they risk bringing more witch hunters to the area (who might accidentally find/exp...

Re: Hello from Greece

Welcome!

If Advantage has you that worried, there are plenty of good solutions that aren't very difficult or intrusive that have been presented here. Which one works for you will, I guess, depend on what exactly has you worried with Advantage?

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

I have no qualms about changing written source material to in order to set the tone that I want in the setting that I want to tell the story that I want with the group that I have. As I suspect that many WFRP GMs already do with the way that Bretonnia, Norsca, Chaos Cults, etc have changed over succ...

Re: Campaign coming to a close ...

I hope you're able to wrap it up to your satisfaction!

Will you do anything particular to help keep the two parties separate? Or to help the players get in one frame of mind rather than the other?

Re: 2nd -> 4th ed. preparation.

If my players are in a scene where they are trying to sneak or infiltrate, then the difference between move and run is the penalty to move silently/hide/ or other related types.

Re: NergalCon

Tadcan, what's your intended format? Roll20? I don't know the platform (and don't really have time to learn it to a standard I consider acceptable to run a game, unfortunately). Discord? I'm willing to go text only (I'm not set up for voice chat and my house is rather chaotic). If we're allowing oth...

Thank you for the compliment! I'm just a fellow amateur hobbyist. I hope you're able to get some good story ideas worked out, let us know if you need any additional help, and let us know how it goes.

Re: Half-Elves in first edition Old World

I was thinking of using an Spy half elf who is hunted by other elves for some misdeed ( in the eyes of the elves but not humans/PC:s ). A spy? who were they spying on? Why? If they're spying on other elves for other elves, why should humans PCs get involved? If they're spying on humans for elves, w...

Re: Half-Elves in first edition Old World

*Can* half-elves exist? Yes. Can you be just as close to lore-canon without including half-elves in your game? Yes.
Do you, the GM, *want* half-elves to exist? What do you hope to gain by using a half-elf in your story?

Re: Solutions to Whiffing

I think your first task is to define what constitutes an acceptable chance of missing, and what constitutes "whiffing". Changing the mechanics to always hit (or nearly always hit) is equally boring to always missing (equally boring, but more is accomplished). Once you've done that, you have to trust...

Re: Minor deities or local forms of major deities?

They would join social clubs with rituals somewhat resembling the actual worships performed by the ancient Tileans, but garbled, like how we would read ancient texts about something and get some of the picture but not all of it. Even the names of these dieties might be confused. These new cults woul...

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

I agree, Archives of the Empire is probably one of the most intriguing entries on that list. But I won't be buying anything else form C7 until it gets to print; the endless waiting is a bit frustrating.

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

Until C7 starts being more accurate about their product release deadlines and transparent when they can't meet one, I have no interest in what they have planned for the future because they can't meet my needs for the present. I am not interested in C7 becoming the Cleveland Browns/Sacramento Kings o...
