Making the Rounds - Warhammer Fantasy

Game Master Aubster

Grim fantasy set in the great fortress city of Ubersreik


51 to 100 of 115 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | next > last >>

25xp buys +5 to a stat, right? Or am I thinking 2e? And with 75xp that would get me +5 WS, +5 Str, +5 T.

And thanks for the heads up on skills. I’ll add 5 to each of the miner skills. Gets me that much closer to going from prospector to miner

OOPS! Please read

I completely misunderstood how species talents work. You get all the species specific talents not a species specific talent. If they had used the word ‘and’ in the rules it’ve been clearer to me.

So humans get Doomed, and Savvy or Suave, and 3 Random Talents

Dwarfs get Magic Resistance, and Night Vision, and Read/Write or Relentless, and Resolute or Strong-minded, and Sturdy

Halflings get Acute Sense (Taste), and Night Vision, and Resistance (Chaos), and Small, and 2 Random Talents

Sorry about that!

You still only get to pick 1 career talent to start with.

I think you’re muddling it with 2e...

The cost in XP of a Characteristic Advance is shown in the Characteristic and Skill Improvement XP Costs table (page 47) and depends on the number of Characteristic or Skill Advances you have already taken in that Characteristic or Skill

Each Characteristic Advance adds +1 to the associated Characteristic. So, if you had purchased 4 Agility Advances, and your Initial Agility was 27, your Current Agility would be 31. The Advances would cost 25 XP per +1 Advance, as at each point the number of Advances previously taken would be in the 0–5 range.

Each Skill Advance adds +1 to your Skill level. Therefore, if you had purchased 9 Advances in Stealth and your Agility was 31, your Stealth would be 40. The first 5 Advances would cost 10 XP each, and the 4 remaining Advances would cost 15 XP each. So to Advance a Skill 9 costs 110 XP points (10 XP for each point of advance for the first 5 advances and then 15 XP for each point of advance for advances 6, 7, 8 and 9).

Note: While Weapon Skill and Ballistic Skill have the word ‘Skill’ in them, this is only a historical artefact — they are characteristics and are Advanced as such.


I see! That’s a big nerf from 2e. Ok, in that case...+3 Strength costs 75xp. Brings me up to 39 strength...so close to the magic 40. Guess I’ll just need to adventure some.


Ok, I'm advancing slowly, but with patience, we'll get there.

Rolling 2 random halfling talents:

Talent 1: 1d100 ⇒ 54 - Orientation
Talent 2: 1d100 ⇒ 7 - Animal Affinity

Can I stack maximums from halfling and physician? Like starting with 15 advances in Sleight of Hand (which is a skill for both)

I'm starting to get the feel like this guy will be party-face type, BTW.

No worries

Yes you can stack max from racial and career so you can definitely get 15 Advances in Sleight of Hand.

Animal Affinity
Max: Willpower Bonus
Tests: Charm Animal
Wild animals feel comfortable in your presence, and often follow
your lead. All creatures with the Bestial Trait not trained to be
belligerent will automatically be calm in your presence unless they
have a reason not to be, such as pain, an attack, being naturally
hyper-aggressive, or having nearby young.

Orientation
Max: Initiative Bonus
Tests: Navigation
You have an instinctual feel for direction. You automatically
know which direction is north with a glimpse at the stars, trees,
or whatever other signs you are familiar with.


Thanks for the reply.

How does the 'Intuition' skill work? Also, Stealth has a (Any) next to it. What does that mean?


There are different types of Stealth. I don't have my books with me, but the varieties are something like Urban or Forest. So you don't buy advances in Stealth as a whole. You buy advances in Stealth (Urban), or something close to that.

Sail is the same way for Landolf, though I never got around to choosing a type of boat for him to focus on, apparently.


Thanks. I need to know the varieties in order to choose though XD.

Stealth (Ag) basic, grouped

Allows you to creep quietly and conceal yourself in shadows more
readily than most. Stealth is generally Opposed by an opponent’s
Perception Skill, and Tests will be modified by how dark or well
concealed your route is, as well as how circumspectly you are
dressed. An Impressive or Astounding Failure on a Stealth Test
will likely draw the immediate attention of the enemies you were
trying to avoid in the first place.
Stealth has many potential applications in combat, most usefully
to hide oneself in preparation for an Ambush, or to creep around
an opponent in order to attack from behind. Of course, you can also use the Skill to escape a conflict unseen…

Specialisations: Rural, Underground, Urban


Sorry, I overlooked your question about intuition earlier

Intuition (I) basic
The Intuition Skill allows you to get a feel for your surroundings, leading you to notice when something is wrong, and gives you a sense of when people may be hiding something from you. A successful use of the Intuition Skill gives you subtle or implicit intelligence relating to your environment, determined by your GM.This may be information such as whether someone believes what they are saying, what the general attitude is towards the local noble, or if the helpful local’s motives are as pure as they seem. If someone is actively trying to hide their intent, they may resist your Intuition with Cool or Entertain (Acting).
In combat, a successful Intuition Test may be used to give you +1 Advantage as you weigh the environment and your opponents. You may continue building Advantage in subsequent turns providing you are able to observe your targets and are not interrupted (such as being attacked); you may gain a maximum Advantage equal to your Intelligence Bonus in this manner.

Ok, money

4d10 ⇒ (6, 6, 6, 3) = 21 brass pennies

Don’t forget to pick one of the 10 Empire gods to be a priest of. Any of the 10 are acceptable but Ranald may be a bit problematic. If your heart’s set on The God of Trickery then by all means go for it but it’s going to be more complicated to deal with than the other Gods.

Yup...I have settled on Wise Verena, the Goddess of Learning and Justice. I am just trying to finish my avatar, but the system is not letting me choose an image. Also how do you want me to send you the character sheet? PM? email? just let me know and I will send it off...if is a fillable pdf and auto-calculates as well!!!

PM is good


I was hearing recently that avatar selection was busted. It could be fixed by now I guess, but if you are having problems with it, it likely isn't you.


Still room for one more? Some Old World grimdarkishness definitely piques my interest :)

We have room for exactly 1 more so welcome aboard. I’d request that you reroll your career choice though since we already have a Seaman career which is pretty similar to Riverwoman (unless you really want to be a Riverwoman which is fine then).


No worries;

1d100 ⇒ 19 [BEGGAR +50XP]

I'll get something cooked up for her overnight.

Something to consider?:
Would you be willing to consider playing one of the lower status warrior characters? So Pit Fighter, or Protagonist, or Warrior Priest? I think the party needs someone with better fighting skills? Since this is a DM request, you still get the 50XP for random roll

Talents: Bookish, Field Dressing, Read/Write, Strike to Stun

You are used to treating wounds quickly. If you fail a Heal Test when using Bandages, you may reverse the result if this will score a success; however, if you do so, you may not score more than +1 SL as you focus on speed over accuracy.


DM's Q:

Absolutely. Protagonist was one of my favourite careers back in the day, so I'd love to retread that. I'll keep the character as a female if that's okay? Think we're also lacking in female representation :)

I'm in UK so will get work on her this afternoon...

Cheers

No worries, join in when you can. We're just starting the first combat of the game but nothing has actually happened yet.


Apologies for not getting back sooner and take it that the table is full. I wish ye all a very fun game!


@Aubster/Decimus: Just been royally hit with the work hammer this morning and one of my support team going off long term sick. New status quo is likely to be norm for a couple of weeks :(

Realistically getting my PC done might be a stretch too far, so with that in mind I'm happy to have Decimus step into my stead.

I'll be in a tabletop game tonight but will try to have a PC together asap.

A martial type wanted?

So far we have:

Dwarf Miner
Human Priest
Human Seaman
Human Adviser
Halfling Physician

So we are lacking a martial character type but if you don't want to play that type of character, have something specific in mind or want to let the dice decide that's fine. Any character type at all is fine. My only request would be to not play an Elf. That wouldn't really fit in with either the group (with our Dwarf) or the setting (Ubersreick doesn't see Elfs very often)


Ok, sorry for the delay.

With 100 XP I advance Endurance and Gossip 5 pts each. If I read it right, all I need to advance past phaysician apprentice now is the characteristic advancements, right?

So, rolling money:

Brass 4: 8d10 ⇒ (3, 7, 10, 7, 4, 9, 10, 4) = 54 brass pennies

Now I need to read a little about the setting and where we're starting so I can give the character some shape. Also, what can (and should) I buy with these 54 brass pennies?

Also, do you have a sheet template we can use for an alias in the forums?


I don't have a sheet template. I can send you a link to free character sheet that works well but I don't know how to get that to work on this site. Sorry. Maybe the other players could help.

You do just need to advance the relevant characteristics to move past apprentice. Once you move past a level though you can no longer buy the talents for that level that you don't have yet.

I'll post some additional background information about Ubersreick in the discussion tab later tonight.

I'd recommend holding off buying anything for right now. Circumstances are about to change for the characters once the riot is over.

DM Lil Eschie:
Sure, we can make room. I’ve got 1 player that’s been stuck at character creation for a week. I went ahead and started the adventure so everyone else didn’t have to wait. So, while technically I have 6 players already, practically I have 5.25 players.

Hi, I'm going to tap out so Lil Eschie can join. I'm finding I have little time to learn a new system right now and don't want to slow everyone else down.

Thanks for the opportunity and patience so far. Hope the game goes fluidly.

Very interesting career. I'd never read the Warden description before because I assumed it was basically a prison warden. It's not, it is someone who oversees and protects another's territory.

You gain a permanent +5 bonus to your starting Initiative
Characteristic (this does not count towards your Advances).

One of the current players. Popping in to say that (a) the campaign is fun thus far and (b) really has a Warhammer feel. Definitely a treat for anyone who is in love with the Old World. A highly recommended campaign to be in.

Adelaida and Decimus, let me know when you're ready to join in the action. Feel free to go ahead and post in the Gameplay section when you're ready. Start off by describing how you found yourself in the middle of a riot in the Marketplatz. Then roll for initiative (we are using initiative is determined by rolling 1D10 and adding that to your base Initiative characteristic.


Quote:


25xp buys +5 to a stat, right? Or am I thinking 2e? And with 75xp that would get me +5 WS, +5 Str, +5 T.

Reading the rules I understand 25 xp per point of characteristic (page 47 of the basic book):

"The cost in XP of a Characteristic Advance is shown in the Characteristic and Skill Improvement XP Costs table, and depends on the number of Characteristic Advances you have already taken in that Characteristic.

Each Characteristic Advance adds +1 to the associated Characteristic. So, if you had purchased 4 Agility Advances, and your Initial Agility was 27, your Current Agility would be 31. The Advances would cost 25 XP per +1 Advance, as at each point the number of Advances previously taken would be in the 0-5 range"

(and 10 xp per point of skill)

What does the Gm understand?

Question about my talents: I rolled Sturdy, Flee!, Flee again (so I supposed to re-roll) and then Sturdy again. Should I re roll the second Sturdy too, or do I start with Sturdy with 1 advance? (Sturdy level 2?)


If you want to advance a characteristic, it costs 25 XP per point for the first 5 and then 30 XP per point for the next 5.

If you wanted to advance a characteristic 8 points it would cost (5 x 25 XP) + (3 x 30 XP) which is 215 XP.

As an FYI, if you wanted to advance a skill 8 points it would cost (5 x 10 XP) + (3 x 15 XP) or 95 points.

Even with the higher cost, it may make sense to advance the characteristic because each advance carries down to the associated skill. And to complete a career you must have made 5 advances for each characteristic that can be advanced at that level.

For a Soldier Class to go from Recruit Level to Soldier Level you need 5 advances in Weapon Skill, Toughness and Willpower.

The rules say if you roll the same random talent again, you may re-roll so it depends on if you want to be able to carry A LOT or want a a different talent.


Cheers, folks. Here's the new stuff. I'll arrange this lot into a sheet asap.

As a human, gets Doomed, and Savvy, and the 3 Random Talents rolled above.

3 extra points into resilence (new total 4)

+5 each to Athletics, Charm Animal, Consume Alcohol, Cool, Endurance, Intuition, Lore (Local), Perception

Strike to Stun

Trappings: Keys, Lantern, Lamp Oil, Livery

Status - Custodian Silver 1

Silver shillings: 1d10 ⇒ 10


I believe that Talther Augenlos is about ready!

GM:

@Aubster: Thank you for your patience.

I'd like to pin down Talther's (former) employers, as in which noble house he served in. If there's one that would especially serve the plot, I'm all ears. If not, I'll make up a random minor house. I'll get posting asap.

Excellent!

Go ahead and roll for initiative in the gameplay thread. I do initiative as your initiative + d10.

Also, post in the gameplay thread how Talther found himself in the Marketplatz riot.
