read alot of the warhammer fantasy books, specially the ones collecting many smaller stories. they're quite excellent in getting the theme and mood fo the setting down and if your players haven't read them they also work wonders as sources for 'adventures'. just try to stay away from the more epic warhammer fantasy BATTLE-ish stories (incl. the later felix and gotrek, the earliest ones are quite fine though).

One players character once got himself dead by neck stretching from a hangmans tree quite early on in a story, I don't remember what he did tod esrve getting strung up on there though, so he just rolled up the Road Warden that actually got his former character hung as his next character and, while at it, saw to it to pass on the former characters nice soft leather boots, they sure didnt do him any good hanging there after all.

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay had (1st edition) had some of the most well written campaigns and 'adventures' for any game of its time (along with CoC), 2nd edition followed that up quite nicely. DH, RT and so on lack quite a bit when it comes to that, also their settings are so.. undefined and on a scale that makes the writters not focus enough on details, and oh are there details in the warhammer fantasy material.

DH and RT is fun, but it offers nothing close to what alot of the warhammer fantasy material do to its players and most of all its game masters.

shit, I'm horrible at telling them but there's alot of them. played WHFRP since 1st edition and we're still going strong today (when we find the time) and probably have 2-3 different WHFRP games/campaigns going with 2-3 more on hold. it's our go to game when we cant coem up with anything else and it just evolves naturally into missery and bitter irony, some times just much slower then others and you actually find the time to enjoy quite a bt of success, and some fame, befor it all comes around and bites you in the ass.

we justs tarted up a little dungeon crawling bit (that KARAK-something book) as one of our players where missing so we couldn't continue on the regular campaign; and the other players had already set the tone for the group with a norse man of questionable origins and allegiances, along with a twitchy mystic with a fondness of odd colored flames and ravens.. yeah, so I did myself a halfling, a halfling cook!

so you might wonder what a halfling cook might do with a norse marauder and a tzeentch cultist, hm? well, it so just happens that this little halfling had, along with his brother, spent quite some time as a cook for a band of ogre mercenaries (maneaters) and now are quite devoted followers of the maw them selves, particularly how it manifests in a hunger, and being immune to the mutating powers of chaos, they just love devouring the most fantastic and mutated of creatures.

oh, and he and his brother runs a meats and extracts wagon where the bowl of mystery stew is but a few coppers.

yeah, well RT has a bit more 'space' or should Is ay 'void' to tell different kinds (tone/mood) of stories, but it suffers even worse from the lack of information and focus, alond really demands alot from the GM when it coems to imagination and just general knowledge of the setting, which also can be a bit hard to get as most of the information is more or less from the view of the space marines (bit more diverse now a days though with necromunda style books and such, still more fitting for DH). while DH is so heavily fixed in it's of little setting of being an acolyte with the quite limiting character advances suggested by the system (perhaps not for a D&D player but for any one not from the school of D&D character progression DH, along with RT, feels (can feel) very sufforcating).

Still, fun games for what they are, just wish GW would dare to give more, and expand the setting of 40K much more and give the GMs and their players more, details (not just weapon lists) on things (also I think they didnt quite knew what to do with RT and ended up missing alot fo what they should have done from the start, which are now, years later, starting to show up in its books).

ah, them thrones is what we are playing, but taking a break from as oen fo our players couldn't make it.

we have one dorf engineer (the professor), two students (half-half taking some of the professors classes, one a noble, teh other a 'horse-fucking' secret police/spy of the ice queen) and a wizard apprentice (student drinking buddy); ALL SQUISHIES!!!

yes, we can't fight (well now we can 2/3rds through, but we couldn't at the start of it) so we've had to crazy mad clever, and spend money for occational mercs and pump every conection we have for support and help constantly, which have turned into a really interesting campaing with alot of witch hunter conections (we've turned into semi-self proclaimed witch hunter henchmen/acolytes kinda maybe, with networks of conections and favors).

at one time we had the idea and opertunity to just fly (gyrocopter) Karl to the moot and have the moot halflings adopt him, but we actually wanted to know what the remaining 75% of teh campaign where about so we decided not to (there where more moments just like that).

we did get Karl to put his hand to the everburning flame at the temple of ulric at middenheim, that was a intence moment, waiting for the GM to describe what would happen (sigmar himself where untouched by the flames and surely if Karl where to be his second comming.. And if not, if he was a tool of untold evil, surely he would burst into flames, eight?).

it give you your past and what your profession was up to now, but it's up to you to interpret it

one of the most interesting things to do, I've found, is rolling up a character's parents and their professions

you don't have to stat them out or anything, just names, professions, and whether or not they're still alive are enough

What house rules do you gentlemen use? We do the following:

Hits to the head deal 1.5x damage. We've flirted with the idea of head hits dealing the .5x straight to the crit table.

We use the DH/RT/BC crit tables, to help differentiate cutting and bashing weapons.

Defensive Stance includes the benefits of Parrying Stance on top of the -20% to hit from your opponents.

If you're using a shield or second hand weapon, you can still take a parrying stance. This grants you two parries in a round.

Lightning Parry removes the parry limit per round, allowing you to give up as many attacks as you wish to gain parries. This combines with your one free parry from a shield/extra hand weapon.

All two-handed weapons deal 1.5xSB damage.

Gunpowder weapons double their damage rating (so from +4 to +8) but also double their reload time.

That's partly how you would fight. A gun or four to be used at range, after which the enemy would be too close to continue using them. At that point you switch to melee.

>>17965333

We use a house rule where, if you flank someone (in the D&D sense of drawing a line between you and your ally, it going through the enemy), the enemy gets a penalty to their attempted dodge/parry. This to make flanking more worthwhile.

Heads tend to be less armored to begin with, so dealing extra damage there seems a bit too much... Then again, the chance to hit someone's head is lower to begin with, so it might work.

Gunpowder weapons are fine the way it is. The damage not being so great I could understand due to the quality of most gunpowder weapons being rather limited after some use.

As it stands there's basically no real reason to use anything but a brace of pistols (for 1st round double shot discard) or the blunderbuss. The longbow (or lord the elfbow) puts out shots so much faster and more efficiently that it's superior to the rifles in every way; even if a rifle does ~2.2 more damage a shot on average from Impact and +1.

With our changes dedicated "do nothing but shoot" types still favor the bow, because the reload time on all gunpowder weapons is really high. But there's SOME benefit to the Hochland or Handgun, now, because if you only have one shot to hit, or one chance for a shot, they'll do obscene damage.

It might not work for all groups, but we just never saw any gunpowder weapons being used until the change.

Purely crunching the numbers, you are completely correct, but most of us played our characters for flavor. Having a gun is a lot more fun when trying to impress the girls than a bow is.

I mean, I appreciate that - I'm a WFRP Player after all. My favorite badasses all started out as Charcoal Burners and shit, and I loved it. That doesn't mean I don't wish there was more distinction between all the weapons - this is a widely acknowledged WFRP problem.

Our group likes the changes well enough, and its lead to a more even distribution of ranged weapons. It also helps gunpowder weapons fill another role - while a bow is infintely better dealing with random bandits for the RoF when you fight something with high soak the damage can't burn through. Enter the always high damage (because of the +8 guaranteed) musket - it'll shoot slow, but it'll break through that soak.

I reckon I may have peaked my WFRP players too early.

They're a bunch of random troublemakers in the Borderlands who've risen through the ranks of troublemaking scum to the point that they'd become the "Knights" of a Bretonnian noble who'd set himself up as king of a shitty town. The major threat was an ancient Nurgle cult that was out to free a Greater Daemon from its runebound imprisonment in an abandoned Dwarf Fortress. In a fairly lethal battle and with the help of the Noble and his soldiers and some ancient runic dwarf weapons, they managed to banish the daemon and the cult, bound to it, went with it. The Noble died and one of the party got named as his successor.

So now they're mostly just struggling with running the town and dealing with the shit that the Borderlands throws at them. Like a Skaven plot. Wherein the rest of the party got pissed off that the member of the party who's now in charge wasn't letting them take slaves as captives and so drove him into the depths of the Skaven tunnels alone.

They're quite into the whole slavery thing. Like I say, scumbags.

It's been a while since we've managed to play, but hopefully we'll be good for this weekend.

I was in a WFRP 2e game on skype, it was really interesting though we'd only gotten to play a few episodes, then the GM disappeared because of school resceduals and i never got to play again

Another, Myself ( dwarven pit fighter) Some mercenary, and a merchant where at some coastal town in the nordlands, when Marauders attacked! We ducked inside a nearby church and bolted the place shut, which the raiders passed over for easier prey.

My glory hound dwarf had a brilliant idea.
Dere out in the town, That means their boats are guarded by like nothing! So the merc and i open the church doors and bolt down the beach to a rowboat, to board their longboat. My second genius idea was to drag the merchant with us, "COME ON LAD, FIGHT FOR YER TOWN!" Who was in no position physically to be able to resist me dragging him.

Our attack on the raider's longboats made the marauders call off their raid, grabbing what loot they can to take off after the almost absconded boats, which guards were managing to win so we dove overboard. Thee town was saved, for the most part, and we were hailed as heros.

In my 3rd session, after one of my players had run a campaign of Dark Heresy, they went into the forests outside Nuln, sent by their boss, the Circus-master, to find a little girl who'd been stolen from one of his shows.

They found her, sobbing between some thick roots. Three Beastmen found her at the same time, 5 players to 3 beastmen. I was confident they'd manage to survive but take a few bruises.
Two rounds of combat later, one Beastman has a hole in its head, the Halfling has spilt his guts over the little girl, the thief has fled the scene, the hunter is halfway up a tree and the Roadwarden is frantically reloading his pistol as the other two beastmen turn their attentions to him.

Yes there is flood-level buttmad. The campaign's not over, supposedly the GM wants the second part to be mostly about managing this whole setup, dealing with other noble houses and closer relatives that are allergic to change, etc. So far, the party is/has been (in order of appearance):

1. Forward-thinking knightly noble.

6. Glorymongering Estalian rake.

It's the first time I've played anything in the WF setting, and it's been bloody brilliant.

When Dreadfleet was announced I was kinda tempted to try a campaign set totally out at sea, the thing is though I've got no idea what the fuck happens out there.

Seriously though, somewhat braced. It does seem like this was planned, at least to some extent, by her.

Personally, I love having players roll up their characters in WFRP, but we can go with another anon's idea of rolling 3 characters and picking the one you like best

I have the character folio for rolling up names, any of the 4 races are available unless someone wants to do something weird and run an all orc campaign or something (not something I'd be against)

I also have the career compendium for career rolling and, as I said before, if you really have your heart set on having a fighter or a ranger or something, you can roll on one of those tables they have on the back

basically, I'll walk you through character creation partly to help new players and partly because I just love doing it

hell, I'm up for just rolling up random characters with people, then fleshing them out I love it so much

Also, if you're curious, my ideas at the moment are for a disguisedly female Bretonnian knight-errant or an elf wizard. Though the latter is harder to pick up without any supplements on elven culture at all, and the Realms of Sorcery book wholly ignoring elven magic...

I enjoy the randomness because you get to watch a character slowly come together. You get lots of different parts that come together to make a whole, then you go back and come up with your own reasons for their origins.

It's like looking at a really interesting picture of someone. You look at everything about them and wonder why they're doing what they're doing, how they got there, what happened to that part of their face.

Not that guy, but I think in WFRP it's best not to think anything up beforehand and then just use your dice rolls to spur your creativity.

For example I roll a human:
Tollkeeper or Roadwarden.

Stats are

WS 25
BS 29
S 35
T 23
Ag 38
Int 24
WP 31
Fel 32

12 wounds

Resistant to Disease and Savvy.

Decent strength and agility, rubbish toughness and intelligence. BS better than WS
Fellowship's not bad.

I could put my Shallya's Mercy on Int, boosting it up to 35 with Savvy, then go for Tollkeeper and head for Politician
Or I could stick it in WS or T, go Roadwarden and then Outrider or something and use that decent Agility for sneaky scouting purposes.

I wouldn't do this in all RPGs, but I think it's in the spirit of WFRP.

about the random rolling; it's a great tool/source for inspiration. many times have I not had any character concept just to have the randomness hand it to me. usually I end up changing some of it as a concept emerges from it all but I'd probably never came up with the character if I hadn't started rolling about in them charts.

To make reptile puns. You are talking about 8ft. tall killing machines and 5ft. scribes who don't have a problem picking up sharp things to stab people at a moment's notice. All of whom bicker over incredibly minor things, and problem solve arguments via "mace to chest until someone is too tired to swing again".
