Hey guys and various RPG afficio... aficcc... players.

So in case you haven't read my almost weekly dirge calling for anyone looking to run a wfrp3 campaign.... Yeah, that's been happening a lot.

So, with that in mind, I've finally decided to cut loose and delve into the wonderful world of warhammer again, with no less than one of my old favourite scenarios, that I honestly will endeavour to finish this time!

So, I'll need three or more players to help me plumb the darkest depths of Castle Drachenfels!There will be counter-intuitive traps, a slow decent into madness and other fun.

I will ideally be running this on FGII but I will need some assistance in setting up the game, namely with connections and other shenanigans. Some assistance with mapping would also be good.

So is there anyone interested in helping me out? And also, obviously, plumbing the darkest depths of that dread fortress?

Oh yeah, I should mention a time shouldn't I? I was hoping for Friday,  after 21:00 GMT, anything else is hella awkward for me.

So, look what I found as I was working through my new gaming goodies...
 
As I was flicking through all my new WFRP3 cards, I found something I recognised: see those images: I drew those for WFRP2! So, it turns out I'm an artist for WFRP3 without knowing it. Was I credited as my contract demands? Of course not. <sigh>

Well, those of us who benefited from your fine art appreciate the work you did.  This was an art-heavy game obviously, and your contribution shaped peoples' enjoyment and your mark shall forever be enshrined on our fine hobby.  Thanks Andy Law, even though you weren't credited  :)

As promised, here is the attempt at a WFRP 3e campaign play by post on Tavern Keeper. You can request an invite to the game on the page.

Ok. I signed in. If you finally go for official adventures, I would leave and let another player join the game.

So this week I hope I will be attempting a first run of WFRP3 using the mythic GM emulator.

On my own.

Yes, that does indeed make me the saddest little sad pup that ever was. So I figured what would make me even more of a complete reject is if I recorded it and put up for posterity on multiple formats. Go me.

So my plan, such as it is, is to try it once on my own, see how you reprobates like it, then if people are interested see if anyone wants to join in.

One thing I'm missing is good software for recording what on my screen as I'm playing. Suggestions?

Ok, so my failed attempt to record the session notwithstanding, my first attempt at using mythic was actually pretty good.

I used two characters since it kinda felt a bit weird using just the one.

I came up with a fairly simple scenario, the two are standing watch over a graveyard because there's rumours of necromantic shenanigans. I rolled to see what the enemy was and got "helpful entertainment" so I put a villager with no clue what was going on in, trying to steal a corpse. There was a chase scene, which I very nearly lost, and then some combat which was pretty embarrassing for everyone until the villager took a bullet in the back.

End result, the "party" now has a prisoner holed up in the Garden of Morr, will they try and smuggle him to the barracks, take him there openly? What information does he have? I guess we'll find out when I roll it randomly next time I do this!!!

Anyone try using Tavern Keeper to do a Play by Post of WFRP 3e? I'm thinking about trying to set one up. I've found a lot of players are interested but time zones and finding convenient times to play is a real issue. Not sure how well the system lends itself to play by post (refreshing actions, etc.), but I'm curious what other people think or have experienced.

Hello all! Starting a new Enemy Within campaign with veteran 3rd edition players, and I'd like to get some of the accessories, like Hero's Call and Omen of War, preferably 2nd hand, from someone who's not playing anymore. I'm in the UK (London), looking to buy them nomnom expansions! Any available?

Or you could get fantasy grounds and run most of the game off your laptop...

Wrapped up a 20 session long WFRP 3e campaign. Pretty satisfying. There was some glorious death, and some not-so glorious death, including mutations on the dancefloor during the Edge of Night masquerade. Overall a very enjoyable system to run, and I look forward to a return trip. Taking a detour to Numenera and Mindjammer, but I'll be back for more Old World sooner than later.

Hey guys! Is anyone using table top simulator to play WFRP3? I just got it there and it seems quite interesting. Any experiences with it?

I currently use roll20, with a free account, and I find it awesome. I have to scan the cards my players use, of course, but in game, everything is fine.

From yesterday's chat, it seems obvious I need buckets of dice to play WFRP3 with ease, so I'm now considering commissioning some. I can create the art I need for it with ease (I provided art for WFRP2, after all), so it seems a sensible idea. However, to make sure this is worthwhile, I have a question.

How many dice of each type would you recommend I secure to fully furnish each player with what they will likely need as the game expands?

On a side note, my group uses one bucket of dice that we all pull from. It would be too difficult to supply enough dice to everyone who has stats of 4 or 5, plus training, plus bonus dice...

I have the dice from the core set and three additional dice packs. Two of those packs came from copies of the GM Vault that includes a set of dice. I found the vault on Amazon at $10, which was about the same price as the dice pack. Current pricing seems to be about $19, but you might find it it elsewhere.

Figured it was worth me sharing this post over here as well as I imagine this group will have a lot of useful opinions. If so, please share.
 
Okay, roleplaying plussers, any of you tried WFRP3? I was gifted the entire line for Christmas, and I'm keen to give it a go. Any hints? Tips? Recommendations? What should I read first? Ignore? How many makes for the perfect group size? I'm open to all ideas and comments. :D

Holy crap Andrew!
We ran it from start to finish.  Skip the bits for now and just run the Players Guide version (no bits, just a character sheet and a pencil).  It runs like EVERY OTHER RPG except you have more variability in success and failure due to the dice.  That's it.  Run it like any other warhammer campaign.  :)

Hey everyone. So I am thinking about running The Gathering Storm using Fantasy Grounds VTT. I would like to see about getting 3 (max) players for this. You would need a copy of Fantasy Grounds to play. I would be running on the second and fourth Friday of every month from 6-9pm PST. If anyone has any interest in this, please let me know. Thanks all!

Giving a shout out to Warhammer Quest: the Adventure Card Game.

The rules remind me (slightly) of WFRP3. It's challenging and even though it is a dungeon delve, it does have an Old World flavor.

Anyone else playing?

The original Warhammer Quest is fantastic.  Haven't had a chance to try the card game version.

Hello, I am really itching to play any Warhammer fantasy or 40K Rpg. I have been out of it for many years but have recently been bit on the ass and NEED to play! I have a lot of experience with 1st edition and have the current core system by fantasy flight along with the Adventurers toolkit. Any open slots or advice to get into a game would be much appreciated.

New episode posted at http://goo.gl/arO1Fp

This one features fimir, witches, creatures from Warpstone 25, Chaos Mutations, Bretonnian 'chivalry' and more...

The company of adventurers expands to six with the addition of Lady Eloise, Damsel of the Grail, Menil the man-at-arms and Fleance the Cuilean squire.

When the Dowager of Charnorte is struck down in her tower the trail leads to the swamp domain of Ouiselle, a blight on the Dukedom of Quenelles where her salvation lies in the search for a corrupted grail chapel. The heroes face the one-eyed fimir of the swamp in order to save the Grail Prophetess.

Not strictly WFRP, but I hope I'll be forgiven. Tony Ackland has graciously agreed to let Rogue Games use some of his art in their upcoming Lovecraft supplement for Colonial Gothic.

It's my first collaboration with Tony in 25 years, and anyone who remembers his art for the GW hardback edition of Call of Cthulhu will know it's going to be very special.

Iä! Shub-Niggurath! The Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young. His work has inspired many.  From writers ranging from Stephen King, Robert Bloch and Ramsey Campbell; to electronic games, movies, comic books and tabletop games. So important is this influence he is known simply by one name. LOVECRAFT. Now it can be told. A history so secret that knowledge of it threatens the very fabric of the Colonies.
