Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

I thought the issue with 3e was all about the rule mechanics and 'component creep', rather than the scenarios. The adventures I've read are just as good as other editions and they had some great writers - Dave Allen, Graeme Davis and Clive Oldfield from this parish, amongst others. You're almost ce...

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

Maybe given the general response to 3e among large parts of the community they just don't see it as a particularly worthwhile revenue stream, so not a priority.

Re: Cheap Tickets - Parts 2 & 3

Unfortunately it looks like they were never published. But Andy Jones has done a lot of Warhammer related stuff down the years, so who knows, maybe they'll appear one day.

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

C7 do own the rights to 3e material, and apparently there is interest from the design team in making it all available in pdf format (i.e. as previously published by FFG, not updated to 4e). But, unsurprisingly, they don't have the time or people-power to do that at the moment on top of what they're ...

Re: Best object quests

Isn't 3e's Witch's Song a broken object quest too? No, you might be thinking of The Gathering Storm, which is a fairly classic broken object quest. It might not be that exciting/interesting for an experienced group, but it's a very good intro to the Warhammer world in that it has a variety of enemi...

Re: Great Blog - Warhammer 3ed Opposed Checks

Sounds similar to my experiences. A stat of 5 can skew things a bit, but you pretty much have to start with another stat of 2 to get it, so I suppose it balances out that way.

Fortunately I haven't yet had a playing willing to commit the advances needed to get to a stat of 6!

Re: Talents - What I learned from novels, comics, and movies

Excellent stuff, thanks for sharing! I don't have anything to add, but I completely agree with you about limiting talents. Your way of justifying it really fits with the logic behind the narrative dice system (imo). I'll be getting my players to read this guidance in future. Looking forward to heari...

Re: Great Blog - Warhammer 3ed Opposed Checks

Yeah, in my experience those double swords can be brutal. My players almost never pass Daunting checks unless they throw all their resources into it. But there might be something in making opposed tests more difficult for characters with high stats.

Re: How Do You Play It - Perplexed and Overwhelmed

Fake Out is an odd action because it doesn't really explain how the basic success level is supposed to work mechanically - I guess it's meant to just be a roleplaying thing left to the GM's discretion. I think you did the right thing reducing the difficulty by one. Adding an expertise die would be a...

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

Lord of Ubersreik in Rough Nights and Hard Days was adapted from 3rd edition (it was originally part of the Edge of Night adventure). But they mainly seem to be trying to cash in on 1st edition nostalgia. Which is probably fair. Are there any adventures/campaigns from 2nd or 3rd that are as fondly ...

Re: 'Crimson Rain' question

It's a great scenario (although I haven't run it yet myself), but I'm generally not a fan of anything that takes away from player-agency. So it's something I'd look at moderating too.

Re: Great Blog - Warhammer 3ed Opposed Checks

Yeah, the purple dice can be very harsh, so I'm wary of imposing too many on my players. Interested in hearing your experiences if/when you get a chance to try this system. Statistical calculation is fine, but doesn't necessarily take into account the variety of possible results from the WFRP3 dice ...

Re: Great Blog - Warhammer 3ed Opposed Checks

Thanks for the link to the blog - it had completely passed me by.

I can't say I've had a problem with opposed checks (I think only the wizard in my group has a 5 stat, and that's Int), but I'm intrigued by this alternative system.

Re: Coming back to 3ed. What I've missed....

Great to hear you're coming back to the best edition of the game! I think you've picked out three of the best things about the system there. Sounds like you've got a group of players who really make the most of it too.

Nothing wrong with being "woke" and wanting your modern RPG product to fit modern sensibilities (especially if they are your own sensibilities).

Re: Any canon examples of characters using both might and magic?

Not sure about mechanics, but Grey Wizards seem to be quite fond of using swords as more than just symbolic weapons. And of course, there's always the Bright Magic spell Flaming Sword of Rhuin.
