Re: Size question

In theory, you could give Big to a Halfling to make a Size (Medium) Halfling instead of a Small (Size) Halfling. Does that make sense? Not Quite. A Size (Medium) Halfling is a Size (Medium) Halfling. Big is completely separate from Size. As the trait says, it is a large example of it's species, an ...

This was very enlightening. Thank you very much. I see the monsters and NPCs in a completely different light now. Thank you!

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

I've been doing a simplified rules system myself. There's a gap that Brigandyne can't fill until it's translated. That said, we've been playing several times a week over lockdown (more than 26 sessions) and have been fine with everything except whiff early on in non-opposed Tests and the vast number...

Re: WFRP 4 analysis

Hi, I am new to the boards (or indeed, any WFRP boards). I have been playing WFRP since the late 1990s, as a GM I have led the first two TEW instalments and a couple of published adventures as well as my own campaign - and we also started Dying of the Light - in 1e. We later switched to 2e, but I w...

Re: Lowering Teir

If I purposely lower my teir, say from 2 to 1, for what ever reason, when I'm ready to go back to teir 2, do I need to pay for all the requirements again? Or just the cost to go to next teir? Just the cost to go to the next tier. Career level requirements are absolute anyway. Say you already have +...

Re: Size question

Another newbie question: When using the monsters in the rulebook, do I ADD the 10 S and T and DEDUCT the 5 Ag from the stats of creatures with the Large trait (fx Trolls, page 324). Or are the stats already adjusted to the creature's traits? Fx do a troll (on page 324) have 55 S or does it actually...

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

So movement using minis. Core Book, page 165. "Moving during combat" "The Movement Table shows how many yards you can normally move in a single turn, either Walking or Running ..." Above it states that you can normally move 4 squares(8yards). - This got us confused. So as a players MOVE then can ei...

Re: Questions on magic rules and mutations

So in 2e, Night's Dark Masters explicitly says that trappings transform with you (though this is for Blood Gifts rather than spells). If you're looking for precedent, you could go with that. As for Wounds, I would rule that the bear would turn back into a human with 12 Wounds left. The extra bulk of...

Re: WHFR 4e - Are Wizards playable?

After finally reading the Magic chapter, and reading this discussing, I completely understand CapnZapp's point: CN 0 spells are more powerful (or at least as powerful) than high level spells because of high chances of overcast. Still, I'd like to fix this without introducing a completely different ...

Re: 4th - Magic points?

While the rules do seem a bit vague, there are some things I interpret in the rules that others aren't seeing. Channelling is useful for younger Wizards trying to reach the high SLs needed for casting spells, particularly all the ones they are casting while using a Grimoire. So an apprentice good a...

Re: Damage while defending

Am I understand this correctly? My opponent attacks and I defend,, I get 3 sl and he only gets 2sl, I determine hit location and damage, and he loses an advantage? You don't do damage on defence unless you a) roll a Critical, or b) have and choose to activate the Riposte Talent. You just gain 1 Adv...

Re: 4th - Magic points?

Yeah, I only found this FAQ2 https://www.cubicle7games.com/4919-2/ that only says that it does not mean you don't have to roll a casting test. And admittedly, language Magick is explicitly mentioned in the talent description. Still, I'm rather sure to have read something at least semi-official that...

Re: 4th - Magic points?

I just recently switched from 1st to 4th. Are there magic points in 4th edition? Or some drawbacks from casting too much magic? 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 c...

Re: Combat clarifications

The other big reason to use Dodge is against bigger enemies. For every step larger than you, your opponent inflicts a -2 SL penalty on Opposed Melee Tests because they're harder to engage with. If you're a Human going against an Ogre, that's one step up in size, so you take -2 SL If you were playing...
