Re: Death on the Reik Update

Wow, I thought I read all the posts in your Blog, but it seems I was wrong. The best way to avoid missing them is to read them all from the beginning... :lol: https://awesomeliesblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/03/hello-world/ I went through one or two blog posts a day after discovering them.

Re: Death on the Reik Update

This was discussed on my blog by Derrick Norton, who wrote the ending of the published PBT. The original draft version ended with an audience with the Graf and the repeal of the taxes. There was no attempt to replace the Graf with a doppelganger or showdown with Karl-Heniz Wasmeier. Norton added th...

Re: Death on the Reik Update

The original ending being a previously unpublished ending? I believe so. The explanation was the original ending was hastily rewritten because The Horned Rat was dropped and SRiK was still being written, hence it was very abrupt. Of course, I don't know how different the ending we got in PBtT was f...

Re: Barge rules

Soon my adventurers will be sailing up and down the Reik in a barge of their own and I want the trips to be more than: "Ok, you passed your Sail test. Smooth sailing from here to Altdorf". I just bought Death on the Reik, partly because I thought those rules would be there. I havn't found any and t...

Re: Death on the Reik Update

Dev Diary out today. It contains a very nice introduction to Power Behind the Throne's backstory and covers some of the changes to expect: Content is reordered for readability, similar to DotR The ending is rewritten back to the original to flow directly to The Horned Rat The Companion will contain ...

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 a missing the illustrat...

Re: Death on the Reik Update

I'm putting off buying Cubicle 7's Death on the Reik, which is not what i thought i'd be doing when they announced a fourth edition of The Enemy Within. I'll wait and see what people think of the Death on the Reik Companion, and i might buy that before buying Death on the Reik itself. (I have the f...

Re: How double does the double need to be?

I take it this is Cubicle 7's edition? Has much changed in Cubicle 7's edtion do you think? Incidentally, there was a entire paragraph repeated in the Hogshead edtion in that section on the Purple Hand. Yep, Cubicle 7's. Overall very little has changed. The adventure layout, mentioned in the other ...

Re: How double does the double need to be?

This doesn't change the way in which this is was set up in Mistaken Identity but none-the-less it is, collectively, more vague about how much like Kastor the PC looks. It could be that my mental stack just has the most recent stuff (from DotR read through in it), so I'll quote mine DotR if you've n...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Being sensitive to players of diverse backgrounds is not the same as politicizing the game. Also, one can explore a lot of human interest topics that have nothing to do with politics, or one can go the route Toby did and create direct analogues of current politics. WFRP1e riffed on 1980's culture; ...

Re: How double does the double need to be?

Having just read through DotR, I'm pretty sure it implies, or even states, a close likeness and not a complete doppleganger. However, I have a memory like a seive due to a combination of alcohol and middle age, so may have misread. I'll see if I can spot it again.

Re: How double does the double need to be?

It's not a doppleganger level likeness but a little uncanny. The mistaken identity is then based off descriptions and sketched drawings coinciding with being where Kastor was supposed to be at a particular time.

In Death on the Reik, the PC may even become magically and non-magically tagged.

As I recall, his various bans and warnings bans resulted from a variety of infractions, not just his feelings about WFRP4. Plenty of stuff gets criticised on RPG.net, but they do object to edition warring and unrelenting, unproductive negativity. I can understand why - in the latter days of StS the...

To be fair to RPG.net, they'd object to that too! They're very even-handed on this sort of thing.

From my experience, RGP.net objects to anything that isn't overwhelming enthusiastic support.

CapnZap getting banned from criticizing WFRP v4 for example.

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

We ditched advantage as well after two game sessions. If you are interested, check my house rules document to get an inspiration on how to tweak talents and traits to work without advantage. The document is huge, it is more a Warhammer 4.5 than a set of house rules, but you can directly go to the T...

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

Interestingly, Andy Law's fix for Advantage is a fixed +10 to whoever's winning. Andy Leask's is just to always use Fast SLs, since it caps mods and Damage. I'm thinking of doing this when I eventually get around to starting up a campaign. I was originally thinking of just using the alternative rul...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

I'd be wary of the "Orcs=blacks" metaphor unless I was looking to do something really edgy and subversive. D&D is currently undergoing a major overhaul of its races and that's one of the hot-button issues. i mean they're supposed to be based on irish soccer hooligans more than anything........ I al...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Surely though the fact that different races do actually exist in the Wahammer world might have an effect upon how much people are bothered by differences within a race. Racisim between races is already established - such as the animosity between Dwarfs and Elves. Also, there most certainly are raci...
