Re: Alternate Castle Wittgenstein maps

This problem has been noted before a number of times and i'm glad someone is tackling it. (Maybe Gideon can add it to his TEWC Companion.) In particular you might recall that a year or two ago (i think) someone was asking for advice on building a Wittgenstein Castle miniature. As i recall the most ...

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

C: Is it possible to play Enemy Within Campaign using 4th career characters from the start and set in the year 2522 after the chaos invasion? In that way use our existing high level party and move on. I'm not sure that is a good idea either thematically or from a power perspective. TEW is about the...

Re: Death on the Reik Update

They should have announced that change earlier. What has happened, for anyone thinking about the purchase, is that Carrion up the Reik has been merged into the main plot with the first being the final of eight chapters in DotR. To make room River Life of the Empire has been moved to the companion. T...

Re: Monuments of the Reikland

As I mentioned, I picked this up the other day. I've now read through and think it's quite an interesting supplement, something like Buildings of the Reikland or Old World Adventures with a more specific theme. I think these can work well as subplots. Aas I mentioned in the other thread, I thought I...

There’s a dwarf ghost in Empire in Flames I think.
If I remember correctly, one was a 'friendly' NPC but were there also wights and wraiths, too? A dwarf liche, also. I wonder how that will be changed in the reboot?

I see a little of GW's spirt has rubbed off on Cubicle 7 as they acquire more of their licenses.

A guide has just been released with 1st/2nd edition to 4th edition conversions. You may find it at least a little helpful. https://www.cubicle7games.com/conversio ... -free-pdf/

Re: 4th - Magic points?

No. If you get Instinctive Diction and Perfect Pitch up, you can cast relatively quickly. Get War Wizard later and you're laughing. Spam Dart to build up Advantage, then cast. Channelling is a waste of XP, so just go all in on Language (Magick). Elves get to learn more than one Wind too, so they're...

Re: Death on the Reik Update

Yes. There's an NPC with stats, a bloodsedge and a few references to skills, but nothing that would stop it working with other editions. Just need to think of a non-obnoxious way to promote it! I grabbed it and printed it yesterday. I skimmed over it and agree the artwork is good. This side of WFRP...

Re: Death on the Reik Update

Dev Diary 11 is out today (once again known only from looking at the twitter feed). Collector's Edition covers are revealed: Morr for DotR and Verena for the Companion. They're in the same style as the volume 1, but are a bit more intricate. I like them, but they're not eveyone's cup of tea. The rel...

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

I got the Collectors Editon which has the handouts and maps additionally included as separate printouts. Unfortunatley, the maps are only A4. The 'Adventurers Wanted' handout has different daily pay, 5/- compared to the 5GC in the book, which is frankly a little more realistic. I am hoping the DotR ...

This is why it's a good thing I don't have a twitter account, such sarcasm occurred to me straight away and I doubt I would have resisted posting it.

Re: Death on the Reik Update

DotR is officially delayed (albeit still scheduled for this month). Apparently it was deemed that more artwork was needed.

Thx for the response Orin.

Maybe just half the bonus to a +5% ?
I was thinking this as soon as a I read your post. Afterall, they're only being used by one hand.

The follow on thought I had was that those benefits would only apply if nothing is weilded in the other hand.

Re: Death on the Reik Update

Another developer diary has just been published, this one containing a list a of river based hedge craft spells cut from the main book. Again, nothing ground-breaking, but some could be useful spells for either characters to acquire or add some extra flavour to witch/hedge wizard NPCs. I like this a...

Re: Death on the Reik Update

Those updates are so predictable they're probably the result of the world's least sophisticated bot.

Edit: they didn't make their 3 week estimate for the DotR PDF.

Re: Death on the Reik Update

The latest dev diary, which I once again missed, contains some nice stuff. This time it is cutting room content for River Gods of the Empire, it has about 4 pages on the gods Altaver, Aach, Bogenauer, Gorol, Grandfather Reik, Karag and Manan. It includes some content for Holy Sites, Strictures and h...

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

I received volume 1 of TEW Collectors Edition today (finally!!) and it's pretty spanking but I'm dissappointed in no faux leather binding even though it wasn't advertised as such, I was hopeful. It does prove that they do, eventually, produce physical goods. Here's hoping to Empire in Chaos by 2025.
