Re: Ease of maxing WS

I just wanted to check our group are doing this right... One player rolled 38 to begin with for WS, and also rolled up the Warrior Born talent, to give him an effective WS of 43. Being a gamey kinda chap, and realising that WS was a key stat after a few combats, he decided to maximise his XP spendi...

Re: Critic Damage at 0 Wounds or I have to wait for -1 Wounds?

Further Question in Crits. When falling below Zero Wounds, you take a Crit, but at -20 on the table unless the damage exceeds your Toughness. Does the -20 also apply to Crits from rolling a Crit in combat, or are they a flat D100 Crit table roll? We have been playing with the -20 modifier, and we a...

Re: WFRP4 Dodge - When, How, and Why?

Orin J. is right. Additionally, when fighting larger opponents, Melee Tests take a -2SL penalty for each step up in size they are. Dodge doesn't carry that same penalty.

-1 Wounds. And any time the attacker rolls a critical on the attack roll.

Re: WFRP4 Dodge - When, How, and Why?

Usually you can use Dodge instead of Melee in any opposed Melee Test. There's no bonus to this roll unless you have a shield or Talent (or Advantage), but it does not use up your usual turn. That means you can still defend every attack that comes at you, and still take a turn to attack, run away, or...

Re: Totally 'Ammered: An attempt at converting Runes to 4e

How do we feel about 'sealing' spells with Fortune or Resilience Points? I'm just wondering if I can make it more interesting than a series of rolls. I think giving up a Resilience point is a ready-made mechanic for introducing "permanent" magical effects. It's expensive enough that you won't have ...

Re: Some advice for advancing my wizard

Again, sorry for the delay in responding. Anyway, I'll ask the GM if he'd oppose to me taking talents from a former level (at least when I have already taken them once). I think he already mentioned once that he'd be ok with that. Thanks! No problem. I find it's tricky keeping track of whats availa...

Re: Totally 'Ammered: An attempt at converting Runes to 4e

i don't think balance matters too much (this edition is something of a mess already) but lorewise i do have a couple nitpicks. Firstly is you've made learning runes comparatively dirt easy in contrast to the lore. to an extent this is unavoidable (dwarfs spend decades as an apprentice before going ...

Totally 'Ammered: An attempt at converting Runes to 4e

I've had a go at converting Runes and the Runesmith Career to 4e. I'd appreciate any feedback on it: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PGV3XDPe3Zf3Ymx7cQYzvEZXXQFN3v_so8A7KQS05_M/edit?usp=drivesdk The systems should be about as complex as 2e but the effects may be a bit beefier.

Thanks for your reply and sorry in the delay. You're of course right about not being able to take Talents from earlier career steps but since I haven't yet changed the career it's no problem to say, I'll take Aetheric attunemt and then advance to level 2. But pointing this out has made me realize t...

It is a faster calculation which I had considered initially. But rejected it because it gives anomalies in extreme cases (trying to roll over 100% or below 0% at the edges) which is unacceptable for my purposes. Thank you for the input though.
That's fair enough.

Re: WFRP 2 career advances

A quick hack: add (50 - opponent's skill). So if your opponent has Melee 35 and you have 35, you'll both get a 50% chance (35 + [50 - 35 = 15] = 50%). If you have 25 and your opponent has 35, you roll 40% and they roll 60%. Using the to-hit table, two 35% opponents would each have a 50% chance of hi...

FYI - Cubicle 7 are developing another large campaign that will follow The Enemy Within based largely in The New World. I believe Gavin Thorpe is author. There isn't much more info. It's been mentioned once or twice in interviews and podcats.
That sounds very cool.

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

Re: Character Creation Weapon Skills

What is "optimal for the role" about a halfling having experience using a sling? If you play a halfling servant why should they know how to fight? From a metagame standpoint the servant is just tough and nimble, not a trained warrior. So why would optimizing them involve slings? It's more that in t...
