Re: Death on the Reik Update

Before we do that I need to make sure that I know all the facts. Is page 6 of the original DotR the only one with such pictures? I thought there were more, but it may just be the imagination from the good old days.... Apart from this particular illustration, I am happy, for any newly depicted scene,...

Re: Death on the Reik Update

I agree, DotR did not need a big change from my perspective. I like that they added the Carrion on the reik stuff, because I own the pre Hogshead TEW books. I repeat myself, but in the end the success of WFRP 4 for me is absolutely depending on TEW 4+5. And, did I say that I am missing the illustrat...

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

There is one iconic thing that is missing: art of the silly contact gestures in Altdorf. I was looking forward to the way that would look in the WFRP 4 style. Now I'm a little disappointed. Luckily I have the original. That art originally appears in Death on the Reik . Presumably we'll see some rec...

Re: 4th: timeline, campaign and play order?

A: absolutely possible, but you could also add single scenarios from rough nights at different points of the enemy within. One scenario actually is in Ubersreik. B: TEW starts in 2512, iirc. There is one Ubersreik adventure scenario, which is designed to lead from Ubersreik (starter set + Ubersreik ...

Re: NergalCon

Anyways, I would hope to see which VTTs everyone is going to use. I was planning on Foundry, but may have to switch to Maptool or Roll20. As I just wrote, I am on fantasy grounds. But because of the missing ruleset we are playing D&D with the available adventures. We do experiment with Ubersreik ad...

Re: NergalCon

I am regularly playing on fantasy grounds and monitoring their forum. My layman's understanding from there is that a publisher cannot prevent someone from creating a ruleset in a VTT. E.g. there's a WFRP2 ruleset for fantasy grounds. The protected intellectual property is just the descriptions, stor...

Just a heads up that Cubicle7 just went to war with "unlicensed" VTTs.
Do you have a source for this? I just follow C7 on Twitter and did not see anything in this regard. Was this a topic somewhere else?

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

My order of TEW 1 and its companion, Ubersreik adventures and the GM screen arrived yesterday. So one small mystery solved for me at least. The content is as expected from the PDFs, haha. I only just realized that there are no foldable maps included. It's not that I need them personally these days, ...

Re: Who has run both enemy within and doomstones

They are completely different. Doomstones is more DnD like. I don't think that is bad, but the enemy within is far better. I would say the doomstones are on a similar level as the final part of the enemy within.
I would remove something rotten in kislev from the enemy within.

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

Well, I kind of prefer the quality of the product over the project management. The other way around would be much worse.

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

I was in contact with the c7 customer support this week. I got a fast reply to my inquiry. That included the info that shipping for TEW1 should be very soon. That's not very exact, but maybe promising, if you want.

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

Slightly related: I am still reluctant to buy Ubersreik adventures vol. 1. I own all PDFs and don't want to throw away my money like a madman.
Did C7 offer any discount for the printed book in cases, where someone's already bought all PDFs?

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

Most of the Reikland adventure hooks and NPCs are rather generic. There is a lot available from old editions on the empire as such. I have no strong need for more sourcebooks. I would prefer more adventures in other places like Sylvania or expeditions across the border mountains of the empire etc. I...

Re: Death on the Reik Update

DotR is a fantastic part of the campaign. Might be my favorite. I do not expect much new stuff in the 4e version. That's why I am much more interested in the horned Rat.

Re: Death on the Reik Update

Gideon, I just reread your blog post. I fully agree with your assessments. IMHO C7 should get Death on the Reik done fast and get to the really interesting parts. As an owner of the originals, still I am looking forward to all the new versions and I do not regret at all buying the two enemy in Shado...

Re: Simplified resolution system

I am in the situation of playing with D&D 5e rules. I have put a few thoughts into how to play in the old world with D&D rules. Also I thought of converting WFRP stats to D&D.

What you describe is very familiar, except for using a d10 instead of a d20.

Re: Imperial Calendar

I intend to go through your list and see where I can provide input. I need some time during an evening for this, which is rare.
I do not know historic versions of German. So you will only get a contemporary view.
