I'm going to run this warhammer roleplay adventure on the forum:

Yes, it is!

So, this adventure is for 1st edition warhammer roleplay (WFRP), so it's fairly old. Even so, I think there are a fair number of people who will have played or read it: if you have, then you can't play this time. Sorry! No point if you already know what happens.

Obviously it would take only moments to look up the story on the internet, but don't if you are going to play. Where would be the fun in that?

The game is set in 2512, which is ten or so years in the warhammer past. The fluff is somewhat different to what Empire players may be used to, especially in terms of which provinces exist and which ones have Electors. But it makes no difference to this adventure.

Also, there's no colour magic. The spells are like the ones in 3rd edition warhammer. This also doesn't matter, since no one will be casting them. Almost no one.

Shadow over Bogenhafen is set entirely in the Reikland town of that name. The adventurers arrive in town to visit the Sheep Fair, but soon discover that something sinister is going on. It's not a combat-heavy adventure: more an investigative one.

So, I would like four or five players. I may have already asked two or three people!

There's no need to know the rules, by the way. It's pretty simple. I'll explain how to make characters.

Oh, and also no one will be playing an elf. They are so much better than humans, dwarfs and halflings that it isn't remotely amusing.


So, is anyone interested in playing?

Great.

Gambler is a career choice by the way!

There is!


OK, that makes three players now. I think I need four minimum, really.


Anyway, I'll start posting character creation rules soon. The first step is to roll your stats.

Gambler it is for me.....roll with what kind of dice and how often?

As far as I remember WHFB is a d10 system   

I think in the warhammer world you should use bone dice :)

Cannon is in. That makes 4 players! Unless someone else desperately wants to play, we'll leave it there.


Making a character

This needs to be done in stages, since you (presumably) don't have the rulebook. First thing is to choose a race: human, dwarf or halfling. It's better if most of the group are human, since this adventure is set entirely in a human town. But if anyone really wants to be a dwarf or halfling, that's fine.

You'll need a dice roller program that does funny dice. Lots of those on the internet.

The stats are like the warhammer ones, except:
- there are some extra ones
- most of them are on a percentage scale


So:
                                      human                   dwarf                            halfling
movement                     d3+2                       D2+2                           D2+2
weapon skill                  2d10+20                 2d10+30                     2d10+10
ballistic skill                   2d10+20                 2d10+10                      2d10+30
strength                        d3+1                       d3+1                            d3
toughness                     d3+1                       d3+2                            d3
wounds                         d3+4                       d3+5                            d3+3
initiative                        2d10+20                  2d10+10                      2d10+40
attacks                           1                                1                                     1
dexterity                       2d10+20                  2d10+10                      2d10+30
leadership                    2d10+20                    2d10+40                      2d10+10 
intelligence                   2d10+20                  2d10+20                     2d10+20 
cool                              2d10+20                  2d10+40                        2d10+10 
willpower                     2d10+20                  2d10+40                       2d10+10 
fellowship                   2d10+20                   2d10+10                    2d10+30 

fate points                        d3+1                       d3                                 d4
number of starting skills    d4                          d4                                 d4

I also need to know your character's age at this point, since it affects the number of skills you get. Next thing is to roll for skills and choose a character class. After that, you choose your starting career!


So, please go ahead and roll! Then post the results.

That looks fine, Fandir!

Everyone has to choose a career class. This determines which careers are open to them. The choices are:

Warrior
Ranger
Rogue
Academic

But you'll need to know which career you want before you choose a class.

You then roll on your career classes table to see which starting skills you get. This is modified by age like so:

Humans get +1 skill if 21 or over, or +2 skills if 31 or over. Back to +1 if 41 or over, and downhill from there!
Dwarfs get +1 skill if 41+, +2 if 71+.
Halflings get +1 if 31+.

I'm not going to type out the skill tables, so just make an appropriate number of (d100) rolls and tell me what you get!
Dwarfs and halflings have some skills preset: dwarfs always have mining, and their second skill has to be smithing or metallurgy.
Halflings always have cook, and their second skill is herb lore or silent move-rural or specialist weapon-sling. Other skills are random.

So, now you decide on a basic career. This is what you were before you became an adventurer. You will get skills and equipment from the career, and also an advance scheme (more on that later). It also determines which career you move on to as you gain experience.

You can decide your career randomly, but I think it's more fun to choose. Here we go:

warrior careers
bodyguard
laborer
marine
mercenary
militiaman
noble
outlaw
pit fighter
protagonist (sort of a professional bully)
seaman
servant
soldier
squire
troll slayer (dwarf only)
tunnel fighter (dwarf only)
watchman


ranger careers
boatman
bounty hunter
coachman
fisherman
gamekeeper/poacher
herdsman
hunter
muleskinner (guy who runs a mule train)
outrider (not like the warhammer ones!)
pilot
prospector
rat catcher
roadwarden
runner (dwarf only)
toll keeper
trapper
woodsman

rogue careers
agitator
bawd (I think this is a pimp!)
beggar
entertainer (various subtypes for this one)
footpad
gambler
grave robber
jailer
pedlar
raconteur
rustler
smuggler
thief (subtypes again)
tomb robber


academic careers
alchemist's apprentice
artizan's apprentice (subtypes)
druid
engineer (dwarf only!)
exciseman
herbalist
hypnotist
initiate (to a cult - choose a god)
pharmacist
physician's student
scribe
seer
student
trader
wizard's apprentice


It's better if everyone has a different career, but it shouldn't matter too much what you choose. The adventure should be equally playable for any group.

Only the wizard's apprentice casts spells, but they are bad spells and he's bad at it. Being a wizard kind of sucks in WFRP.

Skill rolls

Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on May 24, 2012, 11:21:39 AM
advance schemes

Each career has an advance scheme, which is basically a set of +10/+1s to your stats that you buy with experience points. For example, as a Gambler Fandir gets this scheme:

BS+10
W+2
I+10
Dex+10
Fel+10

You get one advance free for your first starting character, but each one after that costs 100 experience points. Notice the W+2: this is actually two advances - you can add one wound twice.

Each career has a different set of advances. However, you can only ever take a +10/+1 once in any stat. To increase it further, you need a career with +20/+2, and so on. They go up to +40/+4 at most.

Once you've spent enough experience to buy every advance in your current career, you can then change to a new one. Each career has specified career exits: for example, Gambler has one exit: Charlatan (an advanced career). But, it will be a while before anyone can change career, so we'll leave that for now.

Skill rolls

80 - 17 - 53 - 95

Right, that gives you these skills:

silent move urban
bribery
lightning reflexes
street fighting


Here's what you get as a Gambler:

advance scheme:
BS+10
W+2
I+10
Dex+10
Fel+10

skills:
gamble
luck
palm object

career exits:
charlatan

equipment:
hand weapon
leather jacket
pack of cards (with spare aces)
pair of dice
pair of loaded dice (always roll 6s)


Plus the basic rogue equipment:
clothes!
knife
3d6 gold crowns (these are coins, of course!)


You just need to pick your free advance from the advance scheme, then you are done!

I'll explain what your skills do later.

I will update my character post with all the info....

so I got this right I could with my free advance for example add +10 to intelligence....once. If I want to add for example a wound I need 100 xp I could not advance my weapon skill.

(I would go for intelligence...I guess 47 is not too bad).

(I would go for intelligence...I guess 47 is not too bad).

Yes, you can pick a +10/+1 in one of the stats you are allowed to increase. Future increases cost 100 exp. To increase other stats (like WS in your case) you need a new career!

It's a funny system!


So, on to Cannon's character:

Moving on.

It's fine to be a dwarf civil engineer, but I'd rather you weren't from Bogenhafen since it would complicate the plot!

Also, dwarf height = 4'4" + d10". Not sure about weight, but it will never matter.

OK, I think I've given you all the info needed to complete your characters. Please post them in this thread:

http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=42711.0

so you can update them later, and so we can find them!

Further explanations:

I think it's self evident what all the stats mean. Fate points are used to save your character from disaster in surprising ways - divine intervention, basically.

Combat works like this:
- as in D&D, you use initiative to see who acts first (no roll though, you just use the stat). Then the combat is divided into rounds, and you can choose to move, charge, shoot, or whatever. Charging gives you a bonus to hit.

To hit someone, you have to roll equal to or less than your WS on a d100. If you hit, you roll a d6 and add your S, then subtract the enemy's T.
Now, to see where you hit them, you reverse the numbers you rolled on your hit roll and check the chart to see if you hit an arm, the head, or whatver (so say you hit with a 32: reverse it to 23, and that means you hit the right arm).
Now you deduct the value of any armour they have from the damage you caused.
Anything left is the number of wounds they take (so, S3 + d6 roll of 4, -T3 and 1 armour point = 3 wounds caused).
You can also try to parry, which does something. We'll come back to this later!

Some weapons give you bonuses or penalties. Hand weapons give neither. Knives give you +10 I, but -2 damage and -20 to parry.

Cannon's guy has a mail shirt, which gives 1 armour on the body

Finlay and Fandir have leather jackets. These give one armour on body and arms, but only if the damage caused was 3 or less. More than that and they do nothing.


If you get a 6 on your damage dice, roll a d100 and if it's less than or equal to your WS, roll another d6 and add that to the damage. If it's also a 6, roll another d6 and so on.

If you take damage that exceeds your current wounds score, it's a critical hit and your head might fall off.

Shooting works mostly like attacking in close combat, except you are further away...

Way ahead of you!

Too bad you have nets and lassos though. Now I'll have to read how they work!


Does anyone need any more information about anything?


Also, you do need to keep track of how many advances you've taken in each stat, because you can't repeat them. Maybe put an asterisk next to it for each +1 or +10.

So say you had BS 24 and took a +10 advance, you'd put BS 34*. Then later if you took the +20 advance, you'd write BS 44**.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on May 24, 2012, 10:52:43 PM
3 magic points? Reroll until you get at least 6! Seriously. Magic is rubbish.

Full descriptions of those three spells:

Magic flame: costs 1 magic point, lasts until extinguished (by closing your hand). A small, blueish flame appears in the palm of your hand, like a candle flame. It's too small to use as a weapon, but can ignite things and provides as much light as a candle. Also it specifically states it can't scare things that are afraid of fire.

Sleep: costs 2 magic points. Only works on humanoids. Victim test on WP or falls asleep for D6 turns (minutes). Must touch target: in combat, this means an unarmed combat hit (so -20 WS). Good luck getting this to work!

Zone of Silence: costs 1 magic point. lasts 1 hour. 12 yard diamater zone centred on caster. Caster cannot move while maintaining the zone! Caster may also not cast other spells. No sound will pass into or out of the zone while in effect.


Magic points are recovered by sleeping. 10% per hour, so 10 hours to recharge fully.

You can spend extra magic points to make the victim's magic test harder (1 point = 5% penalty on test). You can also use them to improve your own tests against enemy magic in the same way.


I'm aware that your spells suck, but I did warn you! If you make it to wizard level one there are a couple of good ones.



Also, don't forget to roll to see if you get scroll lore or not. 50% chance.

Oh, and Int is a good stat to put the bonus on - it's used for learning new spells, and that sort of thing.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on May 24, 2012, 11:06:38 PM
I have changed my list so I have 6 magic points and +1 scroll (5 on a d6 rolled)
Also I will keep sleep.   Not because I think it is useful in combat but because I think it might be useful for sneaking if I can put guards to sleep.   How hard is it to cast.   Like could I walk up to a guard, lure him into a dark corner, place a hand on his face and knock him out?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on May 24, 2012, 11:16:05 PM
Casting spells: It takes about 10 seconds to cast a spell (one combat round). You can't do anything else while casting (like moving), and if attacked you count as prone (take double damage). But other than that you cast automatically. No test is involved.

So you could use it on a guard if you distracted him for ten seconds! I'll leave that to your imagination.


Rules for Gift of Tongues: 1 magic point, lasts 1 turn (one minute). Can extend for 1 magic point per minute. You can speak and understand any language.

That sounds useful, but I'm not sure it is.

What's the difference between a bow and a crossbow?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on May 24, 2012, 11:27:54 PM
None of them are all that great. But, I think I'd go for marsh lights.

Marsh lights: costs 1 point, lasts one hour. Creates a number of lights resembling torches or lanterns within 100 yards of caster. They can be sent off in any direction, and naturally follow corridors and paths. The caster can choose to directly control them, but must concentrate to do so, and they must be in sight.

You can use this to lead people off in funny directions - say if you are being pursued at night. I think it might be handy! Or take the flame spell.

You can learn more spells later of course, but they cost experience points!
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on May 24, 2012, 11:34:10 PM
Give me the marsh lights spell and the sleep spell.   I doubt I'll be using my spell much anyways.   Is it a lot of xp to get to level 1 wizard?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on May 24, 2012, 11:35:03 PM
What's the difference between a bow and a crossbow?

Ah! forgot that.

Missile weapons have three ranges (short, long, extreme). It's harder to hit if further away.

So:

Bows are range 24/48/250 (yards, presumably), strength 3, load and fire in one round
Crossbows are range 32/64/300, strength 4, one round to load and one to fire.

You can also use a lasso: range 8/16/30. one round to throw, 2 to recoil. target is entangled unless passes an I test. roll a d6: 1-3 one arm pinned, 4-5 both arms pinned, 6 both arms free.


By the way, nets are used in close combat. -10 to hit with them, but enemy must make an I test when hit or count as prone (double damage when hit by other weapons).

Not too many to L1 wizard. But it goes crazy if you want to get to L2 or higher (4 is the highest).

I'll be happy once I have some useful spells and can throw fireballs around.   Will I need to join a college or can I be a hedge (hidden) witch

Level one wizard spells are not bad at all. You can get fireball, cure light wounds, fly, and steal mind. Plus some others that look OK.

You don't have to join a college, but you do need a teacher (or you can learn spells from a spell book, should you find one).
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on May 24, 2012, 11:47:12 PM
How does one come about a teacher in general.   I take it I have one in my backstory or should I invent one or do I need to get one in the story?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on May 24, 2012, 11:50:51 PM
Hmmm. Well, as an apprentice you'd have to have a teacher already. So yes, you can make one up if you want. But not in Bogenhafen. Somewhere else in the general region.

Don't worry about it yet though. You won't need a teacher for a while. Unless you want to learn more petty magic spells I suppose!


Also, I'm going to assume the four of you know each other already when the adventure starts. You all met somehow!

I'd better make a new thread for the game, when we start. This can be the out of character thread.

Ha! Don't worry, I know you were joking!

I'm not sure why someone would get a thrill out of imagining their pretend person having pretend sex with another pretend person, but who am I to judge?

I think there's a seduction skill in this game actually! But none of you have it.

Ah, magic and armour. If you wear armour, you have to spend more magic points to cast spells. 2 extra magic points per spell for each point of armour you wear!

Armour is very expensive anyway. A mail shirt is 80 gold! Even a leather jacket is 17 gold.

Swords cost 14 gold. But you could get an axe (same effect in combat) for 6 gold. You can even have a club for free, which as far as I can tell also counts as a hand weapon.

Also what are the attributes good for? Is Intelligence even important for me? I think a low Dex rogue will have his problems...I imagine someone broke the fingers of my character after they found out he was cheating and since then they remained a bit stiff....I really like that I have low leadership.

M = how fast you move
WS = hitting in combat!
BS = hitting with shooting
S = combat damage, and smashing things
T = resistance to damage and disease
W = how much damage you can take before your head falls off
I = reaction speed and ability to notice things
A = number of attacks per combat round
Dex = ability to do complicated stuff with your hands
Ld = ability to lead and inspire others
Int = ability to think and understand
Cl = ability to remain calm in difficult situations
WP = resistance to magic and anything mind-affecting
Fel = social ability  (however, social status is a big deal and may be more important than how nice you are)

Int is used when using the game skill. You can modify gambling results by half your Int, or by all your Int if you cheat (with a chance of being detected).

Dex is used when trying to palm objects, among other things. I like the idea that someone broke his fingers though!

Ld is used when trying to bribe people.

If anyone wants to have a specific reason to visit Bogenhafen (other than the sheep festival), then that's good too. But not essential.

I think I'm going to assume Finlay's dwarf engineer would have a map of the town. That way, I can post one, which should make it easier for you to decide what to do in town.

Well reason for my guy is mainly that he canīt stick around for too long at one city as the people do realize at some point that he is cheating or at least that there is something fishy about him. I have a plan though that I sometimes use an innocent bystander to win the money and then make him drunk (toast to his victories) and after becoming best buddies with him and heading out for the brothels I knock him over the head to make him unconscious and mug him. Should somebody find out that the game is rigged he will take the punishment for me. Low life criminal scum but one has to make a living.

Mortus will want to keep it on the down low that she is a mage.   The very down low.   While she might have talked a lot during the travel to Bogenhafen she would not have mentioned magic and would have reacted with fear if it was mentioned.   For all intents and purposes she is the daughter an improvished merchant family that is looking to make some deals at the fair.

NO MAGIC HERE

Friedrich fancies himself as a dapper gent but somehow his sword always ends up doing the talking (assuming I get a sword), and his sword has an extremely limited and painful vocabulary. This lead to him accidently killing a rival for his betrothed’s affections when he was provoked to rage during a duelling sesh. When people was him still hacking at the man’s corpse in a blind rage he feared the noose and to add insult to injury when he asked his betrothed to run away with him she (rather sensibly) declined. So here he is running away, totally oblivious to the fact that the man he killed was discovered to be a mutant and he is therefore off the hook. Still he hopes somehow find absolution and has recently become obsessed with the cult of sigmar in the hopes of saving his soul.

Aaaah is it too late for a fifth character? It's cool if your happy with four but if yes i already wrote up the necessary stats and stuff. please?

Hello,

Yes, I can fit one more character in! And it's not too late. You can join. I'll post the rest of your character info now.


Five is the limit though, in case anyone else was thinking of making a late dash to join!

Ha!

Gunpowder weapons are rare and expensive in WFRP. Firstly, you need the skill 'specialist weapon: pistol' if you want to hit anything. Secondly, you have to find somewhere that sells them. Thirdly, you have to pay 150GC!

As an aside, though not romantically interested in the lady, my character will feel protective of her, and likely escort her if no one else does. He is a little chauvinist, but only in a way that pertains to feeling a need to protect those weaker than himself, and automatically viewing women as always falling into that category.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on May 27, 2012, 10:00:34 AM
I can't update until the other two post something.

Hurry up, the other two!


How much does a Sallet helm cost?

A cheap helmet (doesn't stack with mail coif) costs 2GC. A really good one is 20 + 1d10 GC. A good one is ~10GC.

Some information on armour:

Shields give 1 armour point (AP) to all body locations

mail coif = 1AP on head
helmet = 1AP on head
can wear both for 2AP

mail shirt = 1AP on body
breastplate = 1AP on body
can wear both for 2AP

plate or mail leggings = 1AP on legs
can wear both for 2AP, but -10 I

plate or mail bracers = 1AP on arms
can wear both for 2AP, but -10 I

sleeved mail shirt = 1AP body and arms
sleeved mail coat = 1AP body, legs and arms
Can stack these with plate as above. I penalties as above for having 2AP on arms and/or legs

leather jerkin (body)
leather jacket (body and arms)
leather coif (head)

Leather armour gives 1AP if taking 3 or less damage. But no AP if taking 4 or more damage. Doesn't stack with metal armour.


Approximate Prices(/GC)
leather coif 6
leather jerkin 12
leather jacket 17

mail shirt 80
mail coat 115
sleeved mail shirt 95
sleeved mail coat 130
mail coif 25
mail leggings 55
mail sleeves 20

breast plate 70
back plate 50
mail leggings 70
mail sleeves 60
gauntlets 30
knight's helm 20+1d10
pot helm 2

shield 2d8+2
unrimmed shield 10 shillings (lasts one adventure)

Post by: rufus sparkfire on May 27, 2012, 10:44:25 AM
How about some info on weapons too?

(I = inititative modifier, TH = to hit modifier, D = damage modifier, Py = parry modifier)

hand weapon (sword, club, mace, axe, things of that sort) no modifiers
knife or dagger +10 I, -2 D, -20 Py
spear* +10/+20 I, +10 TH**
improvised weapon -10 I, -2 D, +10 Py
bastard sword -10 I, +1 D
2-handed sword -10 I, +2 D
halberd* +10/+20, -10/+0 TH**, +2 D
quarterstaff -1D
flail -10 TH, +1 D, -10 Py
2 handed flail -20 I, -20 TH, +3 D, -10 Py
rapier +20 I, -1 D
buckler -2 D, +20 Py
left-hand dagger -2 D, -10 Py
sword breaker*** -2 D, -10 Py
net -10 TH, -10 Py
whip -10 TH, -2 D, -20 Py
lance**** +20I, +10 TH, +2 D, -20 Py

* spears and halberds get +10 I in round one of a combat, and thereafter if user is winning. They get +20 vs mounted enemies
** vs flying enemies only
*** successful parry breaks enemy's weapon
****lances work only when mounted and charging


Anything but a hand weapon, knife/dagger, spear or improv weapon is a specialist weapon and you need the relevant skill to use it effectively.


How to parry:

player may elect to parry after suffering a damaging hit. Roll equal to or less than your WS to reduce the damage by d6. Many weapons modify your WS when parrying, as above. If you attempt to parry, you lose one attack next round (succeed or fail).

You can parry with a shield, but will lose all attacks next round (only makes a difference if you have more than one attack on your profile). Shields give +20 to parry.

I don't think you need to buy anything right now - you've got a decent amount of equipment, I think. And hopefully someone else will free the dwarf.

Don't worry about being slow - it doesn't matter too much at this stage since you've all been splitting up and doing things independently.

Your character sheet looks OK, but I can check it if you want. Don't forget your 'very resilient' skill increases your base toughness by one, so you should have T6.

About pistols and the specialist weapon skill you need to use them: you can learn it without having it available from your career like this:

- buy a pistol
- practice for a week
- spend 100 experience points
- pass an intelligence test! If you fail you don't learn the skill but still lose the experience points.


You can learn any non-career skill in a similar way, though for many of them you'd need a teacher.

That doesn't sound like a lot of money, but according the price guide food per day costs 7 shillings, and a bed in an inn common room costs 3 shillings a night. So you can manage until you bring in some more cash!

Well done, Finlay! I forgot to mention that dwarfs hate orcs and goblins, just as they do in warhammer. While I think about it, your character also has night vision to 30 yards (he can see well in very low light conditions), and speaks the dwarf language (khazalid) in addition to old worlder (the standard human language).

80s drawings are essential for atmosphere. There aren't enough in the adventure so I'm supplementing them with pictures from Lone Wolf gamebooks (plus I can grab them off project aon instead of scanning them like I have to do with the WFRP ones).

What do you guys think can I add my Initiative as a rouge with xp and get another +10 on top of my lightning reflexes or that I only can use the +20 with a better advance?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on June 05, 2012, 02:33:18 PM
I added a wound but could I add another +10 to my Int.   I wasn't sure if you could only upgrade each stat once or more than once
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 05, 2012, 09:29:39 PM
How stat increases work:

Each career has its own advance scheme. This tells you which stats your character can increase. You can only increase these stats, and no others... you'll need a new career to increase different stats.

One stat increase is either +10 or +1 to a stat, depending if it's a percentage stat or not. So, for example, WS increases in +10 increments, while S increases in +1 increments. It cost 100 experience points per advance.

Advances are listed as +10, +20, +30 or +40 (or +1, +2, you get the idea). Each +10 is one advance. You cannot repeat these. So, the first time you increase WS, you can use a +10. To increase it further, you need an advance scheme that has at least a +20. So a + 20 is actually two advances of +10.

So you can never increase WS by more than +40 in total. You can't take a +10 more than once, even from another career.

Stat boosts from skills (such as +10 I from lightning reflexes) are not advances and don't count toward this limit. You can still buy a +10 I if you have lightning reflexes.



Quote
I wasn't sure if you could only upgrade each stat once or more than once

Only once until you get a better career.



Also, I'm back and continuing the game. Post what your characters want to do!

Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 06, 2012, 11:00:01 AM
Poor Klaus! He's having a bad time.


Rules corner: Insanity points

Insanity points are gained when a character comes under extreme psychological stress. Examples include:

- suffering a critical hit
- failing a terror test
- taking mind-altering drugs (yes, there are rules for this)
- any other situation that is sufficiently horrible

Usually you gain one point at a time, but it's possible to gain more.

Insanity points do nothing until you have six of them. As soon as you do, you take a Cl test. Pass, and there is no immediate effect, but you test again on gaining another point. Fail, and you lose six insanity points... but gain a mental disorder! There is a big list of these. They can be cured, but not very easily, and the cure may be worse than the disorder (especially if you go for a surgical cure).

Still, Klaus is fine for now.

Yes, I thought Klaus agreeing to go into the sewers but then finding out it was too horrible for him to stand it was very in-character.

Once the sewer bit is done, the next part of the adventure is investigative (and probably not scary!), so Klaus should be OK. He'll be able to use his talents more effectively.


Rufus, can we hire bodyguards? The group feels a bit light on fighting stuff... I thought it perhaps wasn't a fighty game

Actually, you can! And there will be lots of them about because of the fair. You can hire an unskilled worker (a laborer or entertainer, for example) for about 7 shillings a day - perhaps a bit more if you expect them to fight. Skilled hirelings (say a fully-equipped mercenary) cost at least 20 gold crowns a day, and more if they are more experienced.

But, this isn't a combat heavy adventure at all. You shouldn't really need to hire anyone at the moment.

OK, I've edited everyone's character sheets so they have all the important information, and are in the same general format. That should make things clearer!

Everyone has to complete their basic career (that is, buy all the characteristic advances available to them, at 100 exp for each) before they can change career. This means Mortus will be able to change before the others, because wizard's apprentice has a very small advance scheme.

It costs 100 exp to change to a career listed in your career exits (may be a basic or an advanced career). Or you can choose another basic career from the same class (so another academic career if an academic) for 100 exp. Or a basic career from a different class for 200 exp.

The new class will have a new advance scheme, new skills, and new equipment you will need. You don't start with any of those!

You want me to type out all the skills in the game?  :ph34r:  There are a lot! I suppose I should though. Maybe list all the advanced careers too.

Don't forget it's hard to learn a skill that isn't from your career - you need a teacher or practical experience, and then spend 100 exp and pass an Int test to learn it. It's often easier to change to a career that has the skill, in which case you just pay the exp and you learn it automatically.

Ahh...ok so there are no career skills for a gambler left for me so it would be better to do all my advances in the gambler carreer (like I and W and Bs) and then move forward to the next career.

Most likely shooting pistols will be as dangerous for me as for my opponents. Most Warhammer rules are written by blackpowder haters me thinks.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 08, 2012, 09:09:13 AM
Gunpowder technology is less advanced in WFRP than it is in warhammer, so it's a bit rubbish. It will intimidate people though.

It looks as though the only basic career with the specialist weapon: firearms skill is the coachman (a ranger career). The only advanced careers with the skill are gunner, duellist and highwayman.

Though actually the rulebook disagrees with itself over whether it's one skill called 'firearms,' or one each for pistols and blunderbusses. I think it makes sense for it to be one skill. They work the same way. Plus I'm sure I have another book with additional rules for gunpowder weapons somewhere, that has things like the duck's foot pistol. I'll have to find that.

I'll give more info on specific careers when people are in a position to change - which won't be until after this adventure in any case, since there won't be time.

It's close enough to attack you both, it just didn't do anything this round. Next round Heinrich won't be able to shoot at it since he will be in combat - he'll have to hit it with his axe.

It's too big to get its body through the door, but it can get you with its tentacles.

You get +10 to hit in the first round if you charge into combat, by the way.

And +10 each round if you are winning (causing more damage than the enemy is).

How do people feel about uneven EXP rewards, by the way? You don't get EXP for killing monsters in WFRP, but you do get them for good roleplaying (everyone is doing well at that) and completing plot objectives (since the party is split, not everyone is necessarily doing this). Will people be annoyed if they get fewer EXP than others?

Especially if you raise stuff like arcane knowledge or intelligence afterwards.

Good to know....how common is the sight of an Blob in the Empire? I think Klaus never has seen one or even heard of things like that roaming the sewers under a city.

Well at least it was Boris and not me.

Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 09, 2012, 01:48:47 PM
I expect blobs are quite rare. It was an optional sewer encounter for this adventure! Maybe an alchemist poured too many potions down the drain and accidentally created an unnatural horror.

I've lost track of the timeline a bit, so I'm not sure if it's reasonable for the blob and demon fights to be occurring at the same time. Still, never mind!

I will wait for a response of Heinrich and Julian...otherwise I will back out of the sewer and assume them dead.

Boris was totally your fault though! Better not try that on any actual people.

By the way, returning to the 'low combat adventure' claim: it wasn't actually necessary to kill the demon. Just seeing it and running away would have been fine. But congratulations anyway!


Also, Cannon: I hope you don't think I should have paused the combat until you said what you wanted to do. I just thought you'd left fairly clear instructions so I might as well carry on. I will wait in future if you'd prefer.

17 wounds! I think we were pretty lucky, two hits on either of us would have been a kill.

Heinrich is deadly accurate.


I think we should try and stick together in the future 1) to make fights easier 2) to avoid the exp problem.

You did! And with only two of you!

I was wondering if I'd have to scale the demon's stats down a bit (17 wounds is a bit rough for two players), but then you killed it anyway. Making it fight through the door so it had a penalty to hit helped a lot.


Quote from: Finlay

Good plan. But splitting up when investigating things in the town could be useful, so don't feel you need to stay together all the time.

Oh, and don't forget you all have fate points too. Think of them as extra lives - you can spend them to survive when you should have been killed.


Quote from: CannonofDoom

Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 10, 2012, 09:41:48 AM
Max needs a proper character sheet if he's hanging around! So I'm going to post one.

Regarding this:

Quote from: CannonofDoom
Since I'm ambidextrous, can I fight with two weapons at once? Like my axe and knife together?

I found out that using a weapon 'wrong-handed' gives a -10 to WS, unless you are ambidextrous. From this, I'm inferring that anyone can use a second weapon in their off hand to gain another attack in combat, but will get -10 WS on that attack. Heinrich can do it with no penalty!

Also, I found out that nets can be used as shields in combat (which means 1 armour point on all locations), or used to entangle an enemy, or even thrown a short distance.

If you're using a bow however, putting it away/dropping it and taking out two weapons/weapon and shield or net will take longer than just taking out one weapon.


I'll put this stuff in the combat rules summary in the character sheet thread.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 10, 2012, 10:49:26 AM

You should feel bad for Boris!

Your wounds stat represents how many hits you can take before suffering serious damage. If Max had taken another wound, he would have been at zero wounds... at this point, any additional wounds are critical hits. You roll on a table to see the effect of the critical hit (% roll, and the number of wounds taken makes the effect worse - so if you were at one wound and took three more damage, that is a -2 critical hit, which is worse than a -1 critical hit).

There's a chart for each body location, and depending on the % roll you might get stunned, break a limb, lose a limb, start bleeding to death, actually die... there are a lot of graphic descriptions. Any serious injury will probably result in death within a short time, unless there's someone with the surgery skill on hand.


Also, I've put up Max's character sheet. He's awful at fighting!

also I wonder if I should bring Max to a doctor and how likely it is to find one in the middle of the night. He got wounded pretty bad by the acid blob.

Rufus, when we entered the Baumann tavern did nobody wonder that Boris was missing? I imagine Klaus would have told them that he was killed by a monster blob roaming the sewers right below.

You don't really want to try to break open the secret door, do you? It's made of stone!

Max does need to see a physician (or anyone with the 'heal wounds' skill, like a herbalist or pharmacist) before he can start to heal naturally, but he is stable at the moment. He's classed as 'heavily wounded' since he has less than 3 wounds left, while Heinrich is 'lightly wounded.' But it's not possible to find someone to treat him at this time of night, unless you already knew where to go.

You could report to the nearest guard barracks, if you wanted, since that stays open all night.

Or you could indeed go look for the building above the demon room.

You've all had a busy day and will be tired though.

Rufus, when we entered the Baumann tavern did nobody wonder that Boris was missing?

Anyone who cared enough to notice he wasn't with you would assume he'd passed out drunk somewhere.

I think we agreed to keep secret first...but wouldnīt the guards know where to find a medic or at least some first aid? I could claim Max was robbed and I found him that way in the gutter, and that he is noble born. I see him as a future investment and I donīt want that investment to die.

I really like gaining npc, especially useless ones that I think are useful (most likely his sister also has all the influence in the family and I wont milk jack out of the contact) I like interacting with characters and npc most during rpg sessions hence the talk with mortus.

True, the guards might be able to get him medical treatment. You could try anyway.

As I said though, he won't actually die, or get any worse, unless something else happens to him. He just won't get any better! But none of you have any medical skills so you wouldn't know for sure that he wasn't dying.

No, the dwarf is an elf, and the elf is a halfling, and the gambler is a fighter.


Also, Heinrich is flowery in his speech for two reasons:

I have been reading the "Temeraire" series by Naomi Novik, and my brain absorbs the style,
and he considers himself no country bumpkin, raised as he was in the capital city, speaking as properly as he can, even though he can't read.

I shall have to have Mortus teach me.

Well if he isnīt a complete idiot Klaus at some point might feel guilty and give him some solid advice...for example choosing his friends better and also that if he really wants to be something he should just do it. Klaus is ironically the perfect person to tell him that.

Now donīt make me feel bad for playing a bad guy....I usually always play a goody good guy and we donīt want a warhammer Paladin now do we?
 

I suggest we get our reward(s) and then Julian comes up with his fantastic plan to root out those thieves and chaos worshippers.

The rulebook has details on this, thankfully.

- poor quality dress = 3.5 gold crowns
- average quality dress = 7 gold crowns
- good quality dress = 21 gold crowns
- best quality dress = 700 gold crowns!

Prices will vary, of course.


Quote from: CannonofDoom

Quite right! Max can use a bow without a problem. And since Heinrich uses one himself, it would make more sense for him to buy a bow than a crossbow.


Quote from: Mogsam

I believe people used to drink (weaker) beer in the morning in medieval Europe. Being drunk all the time is totally fine!

Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Gneisenau on June 11, 2012, 10:15:17 PM
They drank light beer all the time IIRC, because the alcohol kept germs away. Some guild statutes contained rules concerning how much beer an apprentice or master was due each day.

Since the fermentation process wasn't known in detail, the brew was often kept in large open vats. Sometimes it would start to ferment when random yeast spores hit it, sometimes it would not. The latter case was popular for blaming occult influence.

Oh nothing - you can just fail to cast a spell if your magic point total is fairly low (unless casting a petty spell). If you have fewer than 12 magic points remaining, you have to roll equal or less than the number you have to cast a spell successfully.

Commandant, stop confusing me! I was writing a post about you going to the warehouse, and then suddenly you didn't go at all!

Sorry about that.   I will be going to the wharehouse after I try and talk to your man anyways.

DON`T go to him yet. We donīt want to be on his radar until we have more knowledge about...well anything!!!

Also this would be about the best time to break into his home and figure out if we can find anything, on the other hand we first should try to get some allies in town...like the merchants he kicked in the nuts, I would bet that most of them have goods in that thief basement, and that the guy makes use of those ruffians. Cannon we might get in trouble if we destroy that smuggler ring.

You do realize that you are an unknown merchant with no real money and influence and you want to meet the most powerful man in the city who is most likely an evil chaos worshiper....or worse just a regular ruthless merchant that wonīt need to think longer than a second to order our deaths should he consider us a threat? Best to stay away from him unless we HAVE to run into him.

Finlay after we most likely get into trouble with the clerk and the circus owner would you mind trying to seek out the Baron? We might ask him or rather one of his bodyguards if they knew there was demon worshiping going on in this town. We could offer them to show them the chamber in the sewers and offer to investigate if the Baron offers some money and protection as we think the evildoers might be up pretty high in the nobility of Bogenhafen.

It is unlikely that the Baron is guilty as he is only here on a visit, AND he has the authority to protect us or even send troops to help out.

By the way what is the price of a good barrel of wine?   I'm thinking 10-15 crowns a barrel so 5-10 for the factors here
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 13, 2012, 03:59:57 PM
Hmmm, the trading rules in Death on the Reik reckon the value of goods in units of 100 encumbrance points - that's 20 bottles of wine. Apparently, a standard barrel of wine in the real world is 300 bottles! Maybe we are talking about smaller barrels here.

The price of wine per 100 encumbrance (20 bottles) is between 3 and 30 crowns, dependent on quality and season.

So it's fairly complicated.

I'm thinking that a sample cask of wine contains only one bottle.   Six gold crowns should be enough for a few sample casks of even very good wine I think.   Or is my understanding of the values all screwed up?

It isnīt but enough to pay for 20 bottles of wine, so the tasting should be no problem. But interesting to see how the merchants react to the incredible sum of 6 crowns appearing on the table.

Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on June 14, 2012, 11:27:58 AM
I thought a crown was roughly equal to a pound.   Therefore six crowns is a years' wages for an unskilled worker.   Also I was going on the idea that a barrel of wine costs between 3 and 30 crowns so 6 crowns should be enough for a few bottles I think.   If not then my plan to get us into the warehouses might not work so smoothly.

Also I think that it is reasonable that a merchant would not want to carry large sums of money on their person.   You remember that my mission is only to buy sample casks in order to try and bid for a much larger order later.

I want to buy another hand weapon. I have good weaponskill but poor strength, so another chance to hit works for me. The only thing I was annoyed about when rolling my stats… Also my shocking BS, as I think I can get blunderbusses if I choose the right career. Maybe they fire like flamethrowers though.

And also a shield so I can use axe and shield if I have to.

Also, I don’t want to sell the candlesticks- too dangerous. So I’ll leave that to Klaus and Heinrich.

I think the difference between the wages of an unskilled worked and what the merchants earn would be vast! Seeing as they run the town. And “stuff” seems to be more expensive here so I don’t think a crown is a pound really.

1 gold =  20 shillings?

Yes.


Sounds like a pound to me.   6 crowns is quite a lot of money, not enought to break the bank but remember that even for merchants their yearly income would only be in the range of 500-5000 crowns a year.   The factors themselves might be being paid 50-60 crowns a year.   Or I could have the money system completely off :) :)

Finlay the Baron is the Count I was confused too, he is the guy living 20 miles off, the one with the military might and the nominal power in the city.....well he has no real power but he is the liege lord.

And how much were Cannon’s helms? And how much did it cost for a round of drinks and to stay in the inn? I think it was quite expensive. I got 20 crowns for a few hours work surveying the sewers!

We need to get the rewards and split them. In half with me and cannon from the clerk, we did kill a demon after all, and I might share with Klaus too for the goblin pelvis, if we get anything from the Dr. I’m obviously keeping my engineering wages! And then I will pay Heinrich back for the hat.


Commandant, it might be enough to buy a few bottles of wine, but I don’t think it will impress the people in your meeting.

Max is rich and 50 crowns is his pocket money his father gave him to keep him busy....and drunk I guess.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 14, 2012, 12:19:43 PM
Let's not get bogged down in economics! I doubt it makes sense anyway.

For reference:

Wages per day:
Unskilled = 7 to 10 shillings
Skilled, one career = 20 crowns!
Skilled, two careers = 30 crowns
(increasing for characters who have completed more careers)

This is why Julian got 20 crowns for surveying the sewers. He's a skilled engineer.


Subsistence costs:
Food per day (cooked) = 3 to 7 shillings (must spend at least 7 if possible)
Pint of beer = 9 pence
Bottle of wine = 4 to 25 shillings, depending on quality
Bed in a common room at an inn = 3 shillings
Private room at inn (sleeps 4) = 30 shillings


Some other things, as examples:
Riding horse = 60 to 480 crowns
Pack horse = 30 to 60 crowns
Urban house = 450 crowns
Printed book = 40 crowns!
Sword = 14 crowns
Leather boots = 9 crowns

Does that help?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on June 14, 2012, 01:08:30 PM
Ahh I thought that crowns were much more valueable then they were.   No harm done I suppose.   I think I can still talk my way into the warehouse, which was the aim of the entire thing.

I am aware that her fel is quite low but I think that with the festival and everything it would be very difficult to break into the warehouse.

I thought crowns were more valuable than they seem to be too. Oh well - I'm sticking to the values in the book, so it's at least consistent.

I have no real idea what the relative costs of things should be in a pseudo-renaissance fantasy setting anyway.


I want to buy another hand weapon.

I think you already have one. The equipment you get as an engineer includes a hand weapon (which can be a sword, mace, axe, club, or something like that) and a hand axe... which is also a hand weapon.

Perhaps we should invest the money in hired muscles?

Or hired burglers? Hmmmm how about I try to contact some thief in some dubious tavern to break into Teugens home and try to find some compromising intel on him.....advantage if he fails and gets caught we are out of trouble.


Finlay, Cannon, Commandante.....should Klaus get you along with his Baron expedition or would you rather stay out of it. If you want to join Klaus could pick you up on the fair...but if something goes amiss it might be better if he is the only one deep in trouble. What would you say?

No, they would have assumed they were our things. Once they were removed from the building there was no way to prove they had come from there, especially if the guy was covering it up afterward.

I think we're going to have to go back and find more substantial evidence while you rot in the stocks.

I didn't realize this was your plan, or I would have strongly advised against it. Same with Commandant.

Poor Klaus... I'm going to feel bad if he gets flogged.  :icon_sad:

And he probably will.


See, I told you we should have busted through that secret door

The adventure comes right out and says 'don't let them find the secret door, and even if they do don't let them open it!' Obviously I'm much more reasonable than that (Julian would easily find it anyway), but it's still a dwarf-made stone door that is designed to be opened from one side only. It would take ages to break it open, and might need a team of engineers to do it. Or a bomb.

Plus you can easily find out which building is above the cellar, by having a look from the street.

Mortus will go back to the room.   She is a little freaked about what happened in the warehouse.   If Heinrich and Julian are still there that is good.   If not she will wait for them.   I'm not sure how much time I spent doing my thing and they spent doing their things and whether or not we are in the same time line again

Fandir: How interested in revenge is he?

Post by: Fandir Nightshade on June 16, 2012, 08:40:09 AM
Klaus is too smart for revenge....especially on someone as high as the captain of the guard of a Baron.

Question now is if he is humiliated and retreats a bit to himself and is thankful for the help of the others....or if he vents his frustration on the others spilling some strong language and bile over them....especially Max.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 16, 2012, 08:47:21 AM
I should think he's humiliated and traumatised right now, and in too much pain to say much. But next morning when he's recovered a little, he might be angry and start blaming everyone else. I can definitely see him picking on Max, as the weakest target.

Since nothing seems to be happening in Bogenhafen (boooooo!) I updated everyone's character sheets so they have explanations of what your skills do. I was amused to see that Julian, Mortus and Max are all good dancers!

I also noticed that Julian can make weapons and armour. If he has the equipment. Which could be handy.

Realistically, I think Klaus and Max have to stay at the inn and rest until tomorrow. So that does count you out, unfortunately. Unless Klaus is feeling well enough to start shouting at Max. He might do that now they are alone.

Max already gave Julian 4 out of the 5 crowns he owes him (he gave him all the money he had left!).

He can get more by borrowing against his trust fund (which is based in Nuln) at the merchants' guild. He has a ring with his family crest on that he can use to prove his identity, plus obviously he can sign things and tell them his father's name. He'll do that as soon as he's well enough.

Max's father has provided generously for his son... not because he loves him, but because it would be shameful if his son didn't have enough money to at least look respectable.

 :happy: common Klaus is very nice company and has high fellowship it is natural that people are attracted to him. I am already wondering if Klaus will have a huge mob of NPC helping him out once in a while.

Klaus anger is already down again and he DOES enjoy talking with Greta if Max will show up and "embarrass" Klaus it might be the moment to get him drunk and put his spirits back up.

kidnap him? I'd rather break into his office, with only a dog guarding it, to be honest.

We know steinhager and also Johan Teugen- JT on the letter.

The initials on the handkerchief were...F.S.

Franz Steinhager.
as it was under his building it even makes sense. So we know that he is part of it and that there is something going on at the 12th ring of the bell....how about someone able to shadow people follows him. We also know that he will be at a restaurant first for a while.

Max is a student.   I don't think Mortus should wander around alone at night :).   The Sergeant is not going to approve of some random stranger asking him why he is lying and I have no desire to join Klaus in getting my back redecorated.    I'm not sure what Mortus should do now, come back to the inn and eat I think.

But then we would know that she is a caster...also she would need to touch the dog to make it go to sleep. Sleep would be perfect for breaking in though should a guard show up.

The Shaffenfest, as the poster at the start of the game thread says, last three days. You arrived on day one, and it's now late on day two. It ends tomorrow.


Anyone else wondering why Max can read the magic language?

I know this looks suspicious, but it actually isn't - the magical language is known by most well-educated people. It's a skill on the student basic career. It doesn't mean he can cast spells.

Magic is not illegal, except for necromancy and demonology. Lots of university professors dabble in it.

Not quite but I must act within the limits of what I can do.   If I suddenly roll up to a captain and go "Hey you lied" at best I will end up like Klaus, at worst I will end up dead.   Nah I'm going looking for my friend in the guard.   he might be able to tell me something.

Also Mortus can't really cast spells.
A: She doesn't really have any that are useful
B: It would get her burnt at the stake and if letting Bogenhafen go to hell is the price that must be paid to stay alive then she will pay it :)

Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 18, 2012, 04:25:33 PM
Magic is legal in The Empire. There are a number of noted schools of magic, most famously the one in Middenheim. The Altdorf colleges don't actually exist in this version of the fluff (no colour magic either!), but I'm assuming they do. Necromancy and Demonology are totally illegal.

Most wizards are taught by individual masters rather than at schools.

Educated people are interested in magic, but common people are usually suspicious and fearful of it. Witch hunters are always on the lookout for evil wizards, and may decide to go after innocent ones at times.

Casting spells in public is not a terribly good idea, and wizards will try to avoid doing so.


The following types of magic exist:

-petty magic, which is petty and not very useful
- battle magic, which is generic and is used by most wizards (and also by alchemists, who are just less powerful wizards who like chemistry)
- illusion magic, which deals entirely with the creation of illusions
- elemental magic, which channels the four classical elements
- necromancy, the dark art of commanding the dead
- demonology, the summoning and control of horrors from the warp

Necromancy and Demonology corrupt the bodies and souls of those who use them!


Also, priests use magic in the same way as wizards. They just acquire their spells differently.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on June 18, 2012, 04:28:05 PM
Hmmm, maybe Mortus is a little too worried about Witch Hunters so, though her Master did always stress the need to ensure that nobody knew she had magic.

So it seems not a great idea to go casting Willy nilly , but not the end of tie world if you did.

I just think it's odd you chose a wizard, then didn't use your abilities.  Its not even adding to the rokeolaying  because no one knows!
Could have been a trader with social skills.

Ok guys.....this time I make it a team effort, how should I progress with Greta? I would suggest to her, that I might have informations about this "Club" and if what I know is true and would come out it would mean the end of everyone involved in that club and most likely the social suicide of both the Teugen and the Steinhager family and that I would share that information and investigate more on it but only if the Ruggbroders would pay each and everyone involved in it 2000 gold crowns should we succeed.. (that might sound much but actually it isnīt if Finlay works a whole year he would bag a sum of a 9000 crowns at least so a sum of 10 000 crowns shouldnīt be too much for a super huge trade family especially if it would mean the end of the biggest competition in town.

So what would you guys say?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Finlay on June 19, 2012, 08:51:21 AM
Good idea, but I think you will look insane asking for 8000 crowns!
You’ll need to convince her first, and then ask for the money.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)

Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Fandir Nightshade on June 19, 2012, 08:57:42 AM
It is a huge sum yes but destroying the trade empire of the Teugens and Steinhagers is also some huge business. Even if only a few members of the family are involved in the demon worshipping the name of both families will be soiled for many many years. Now all we need is hard evidence. Best would be to catch them in the act.

I also considered asking Greta if she has some contacts in the pit and if we should hire a proper stealthy git that could shadow Franz Steinhager tomorrow night....well Klaus would do that if he knew that there was something going on next night.

I think heinrich is closest to the classical hero figure, martial, just and as you stated pretty badass. Julian is a dwarf so he combines also quiet a few values under his beard and belt but as in most stories the main characters are humans and the other races are more like sidekicks. Mortus and Klaus are egoistic but very realistic characters I would say.

So lets cross our fingers and hope that uncle Klaus earns us a fortune for doing what we wanted to do anyway.

Does Nordland have a university or can I make one up if need be.   (Or course Mortus could just have made one up anyway and counted on the fact that they would believe her because they know no better)

Oh no, surelyHeinrich could have warned Julian when he heard the noise, Jlian was only just round the corner.

Sorry, did he warn you? I might have missed it. If so you can act as though he did.



Quote from: commandant

I'm not aware of one, but it might have a small college in the capital city (Salzenmund).

If you did lie and make one up, Max might actually notice. His history skill could cover the establishment of universities.

You can't really show up at the inn covered in blood (well, you could... but surely someone would tell the watch), so a little swim in the river is a good idea. I don't think anyone has any spare clothes, so that will probably have to do.

You should put plastic sheeting down before you commit your murders, like Dexter!

Most common people can't read. Klaus doesn't have the read/write skill (generally, only academic careers include it). He can learn it though.

Heinrich can't read either! It's fine.

As far as I know we know the following

- There is a temple somewhere in which a begger will be murdered
- There is a meeting of the sinc
- Professor Teugen turned his family's fortune around swiftly and had a reputation in Nuln
- The Steinhagers may be involved as well
- There could be a thieves den in the sewers
- It will all come about at the end of the festival (2 days I think)

Am I missing anything?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Fandir Nightshade on June 21, 2012, 09:37:22 AM
Let us try to find out and make a list...and snigger to yourself about everything we missed.

I gave Klaus another wound as the flogging increased his toughness.

- we know that there was a demon summoned under the Steinhager office with the help of a mutated Goblins blood
- we know that there was a cover up attempt by Sarge Hohlbein about the mutant
- we know that there was a handkerchief with the initalis FS most likely Franz Steinhager at the room
-we know of a secret order called Order Serpentus or the sevenfolded order
-we know that Teugen and Steinhager are likely in this together.
-we know that there is a secret meeting of the inner circle this evening after the ring of the 12th bell
-we know that this meeting is supposed to have a huge impact on the influence of the two families on trade, so huge that they will be more powerful than any merchant family in the old world (or so they think).
-we know that Ruggbroder is opposing them but doesnīt know much
-we know that Sir Martin is a dick.


Addition from Commandantes post
-we know that there is a thieves den under the crossed pike
-we know that the Patriarch of the Teugen family was a professor in nuln and was suspected to dabble in magic, also his brother died mysteriously.
-we know that there is some temple in which a beggar will be murdered.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 21, 2012, 09:47:03 AM
Good lists! Well done.

One thing though: the secret meeting is an hour after sunset, today. The '12th bell' thing is something happening tomorrow.

Today is the last day of the Schaffenfest.

The blood on the dagger was definitely red.

And the middenheimer was just trying to escape, I don't think he was headed to a specific place.

I added +10 to my initiative, added back a wound, and added my share of the stolen monies (200) to my sheet.

It's interesting that he chose to enter the sewers, rather than trying to lose his pursuers on the streets. Was he trying to get somewhere specific?


He tried to kill some Viscount at the joust.

Yes, he's very clever, and is brave and generous despite his horrible childhood with his abusive father (his mother died when he was very young, and his sister is as horrible as his father). He desperately wants people to like him, so will put up with almost any amount of bad treatment.

Klaus will also call upon ranald while making that oath, thing is should we fail not the gods but some Ruggbroder mercs will be after us, them and the Teugens and Steinhagers. In any case backing out of it will be much less of an option. But Klaus can already see a nice pair of masterly crafted duel pistols.

Aaaaah, a ginormous complicated list of things!

I think the prices are more or less the same as in the book... it's just that there are way more things listed in that list! You can use it as a guide if you want, but I'm sticking to the rulebook. Or I'll get confused.

Stinking scent is basically a stink bomb, to conceal your smell to dogs coming after you...and I imagine it making some sulfuric smoke so green yellowish smoke when I combine the chemicals.

Lamp black is soot to cover face and hands yes.

I can only afford the cannon afterwards....next demon challenging us will take some S10 in his face.

Being a coward and paranoid helps Klaus to survive.

Also I should either hide that stuff very well afterwards or even throw it away as it would be proof that I am in the thieving business....or at least make it very likely.

I wasnīt sure you guys wanted thief stuff too. I think the lamp black is more than enough for all of us the other stuff is only useful in my or maybe Heinrichs hands.


Couldnīt Max climb up that pipe and NOT enter the house but try to listen what is said....maybe it is the direct dump to the privy of Teugen himself and he might hear what is going on in the chambers.

Klaus might get some less attractive clothes, something in dark brown tones. Other than that he would like to meet up with the others before the meeting and talk about what exactly the plan is. Right now the rest of the plan is meeting up with Greta and following Steinhager to hopefully the meetingplace at the Adelring and there go into the bushes.....sadly without Greta who should wait a bit away and only come out of hiding after I am in trouble or if I need help kidnapping this other guy.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 22, 2012, 10:30:49 AM
Social standing:

Characters have a class (A-D) and a standing (a number).

Class:
A = Nobility
B = professional/academic
C = craftsman/tradesman
D = labouring/criminal


Heinrich is class C, but as a bounty hunter is regarded with fear and distaste. However he counts as class B when dealing with other such people (mercenaries, watchmen, people like that). His standing is 3d6.

Julian is class C, but class B among dwarfs. His standing is 5d4.

Klaus is class D, but as a gambler is socially mobile and can go up in class by associating with the right people. His standing is 5d4.

Mortus is a wizard's apprentice, so should be class B with 2d4 standing... but she's pretending to be a trader, so is class C, with standing of 2d6.

Max, as a student, is class B, and has standing of 2d4.


What does any of this mean? I'm not sure yet!

Actually, I got that wrong. He can choose to learn those skills, but doesn't have to. He does have to complete his advance scheme before he can become a lawyer.

Only your first career has to be fully completed in this way. Later ones don't have to be.

OK, I've added a social standing entry to everyone's character sheets. I've put the class in and how many dice you need to roll. Everyone but Finlay needs to roll these.

What does it do, you ask?

Well.

When dealing with someone of another class (the letter), standing (the number) doesn't matter. A noble doesn't care if someone is a scribe or a soldier, he just knows they are beneath him. Standing is used to compare characters of the same class. It reflects the differences in status that only someone of the same class will notice or care about.

Some rules:

When dealing with someone of lower class, you can use Ld instead of Fel if you want: you are using your authority to get them to do what you want, rather than being nice to them.

You also get a bonus to Ld but a penalty to Fel when dealing with lower classes.

When dealing with higher classes, you have to use your Fel, and get a penalty

When dealing with someone of the same class, the difference in your standings modifies your Fel test.

You can use skills like bluff, disguise, acting, and various others to pretend to be a different class.

If I punch someone in the face...I deal the same damage as clubbing them with my hand weapon right?

I'm not sure about that... it sounds wrong. Use your club for now and I'll check!

Yes, that's the only stat I don't like (well, good bs would have been cool for handguns).

But think it makers sense roleplay wise. Heinrich a badass, Julian competent but not too deadly.

I absolutely love the pictures.

I think you'll be able to increase your S and BS a bit when you change careers. Your toughness is epic though!

The pictures are really atmospheric (all the ones in the style of the one I posted of the thugs come from the actual adventure). But I've nearly run out! There's an amazing one I am hoping to be able to use later though...

Heinrich keeps rolling really well!

Max will be so proud he hit someone with his bow... and then he'll feel bad about hurting him.


I need to wait for Mortus to act before moving to the next round... will she cast a spell? Or continue to keep her secret?  ::heretic::

Everyone else can give general instructions for their character though, as Cannon has.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 23, 2012, 03:50:48 PM
You can regain them by sleeping (normal night's sleep to restore all lost magic points). They can also be restored by meditation, but you need the skill to do that.

Losing magic points doesn't make you tired, as far as I can see.

Only that magic must have been used!

But he didn't cast a spell - the effect was instantaneous, and no spell was said. She thinks he could have become ethereal (thus the arrows fell to the ground) and invisible, and then escaped on foot. She believes that such an effect can be achieved by powerful elemental magic.

No need to risk more people than necessary....and nope explaining stuff to the watch can lead to serious pain on the back with not knowing who is part of the ordo and even the slight possibility that hohlbein a high ranking officer is one of them....no need at all to talk to them unless you want to make sure that the halfing stays out of trouble....noble but pretty stupid.

Of course I do...and this time it even is in his own interest Klaus knows what a flogging feels like and you guys can remember the little thief from the start......that one got flogged too. Lets boot it. There is no rational reason for Max to stay except that Heinrich doesnīt want to leave him alone with the influence of Klaus.

But Max feels as though he should stay and help explain things to the watch... he is going to be a lawyer after all, and his father taught him to respect the law... and Heinrich is staying, so it would feel wrong to desert him. But on the other hand he's scared of being whipped again, and Klaus has told him to leave with him.

The poor kid doesn't know what to do!

Klaus has said his part and we have been around the place for too long already....would be funny if Klaus and Mortus are the only survivors.

Klaus frowned towards Heinrich but gave Max one of his smiles before he turned and left....he is already going and if Max canīt decide for much longer he wonīt be able to follow him anyway.

I think the hunchback was a demon summoned to find us and Klaus thinks so too.....and will say so as soon we are at some place on our own. I am looking forward seeing Greta again.

Do what a proper gamer would do ...roll a dice ....and than roll another dice to see what the watch will do with them. Or if it was part of the adventure do what would happen after the encounter and when it turns out that the watch especially the branch under Hohlbein are demon worshipers.

I wonder how often I am completely wrong with my assumptions.

Awwwww commandante offering the easy way out. I wonder if Heinrich takes the hint too.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 24, 2012, 12:06:32 AM
Max is going to run away now, because he believes that saving the town is more important. He will definitely turn himself in to the watch later though, and he's going to feel very guilty until he does.

Honestly, what a drama llama I am! It took ages to make that decision. Ridiculous.


OK, so we'll wait to see if Heinrich changes his mind before carrying on.

According to Rufus, I have a B standing with watchmen, and the thugs will have a D. That means it will be much easier for them to believe me than him.

I'm not worried. I have the Law on my side.

While I agree with your assessments that running now would be the smart thing to do, I don't believe my character would. He takes the law a little too seriously  :unsure:

Unless Hohlbein is part of the cult and the guardsmen appearing are under his influence...than your B standing will end in a RIP standing.

Last time I checked breaking into a house and killing the warden of it was against imperial law...but Klaus isnīt that well sorted regarding imperial laws so he could be wrong.

I hope Heinrich gets out of it alive.

Heinrich makes waiting for the watch sound so reasonable that Max might change his mind... except hopefully he's already gone.

The social standing thing is true, and who's to say these watchmen will know about the robbery/murder? He could be fine. Let's find out!

The only evidence we have found in no way implicates any officials, only high ranking merchants. It is ridiculous to assume the entire town is involved just because Klaus got himself flogged for pestering a noble with no evidence. What evidence have we had of any corruption beyond the normal?

Liar.

Klaus was kind of stunned about how much both....Max and Mortus spoke and about basically nothing very important ......at least Klaus thinks so as he didnīt understand most of the conversation but he considers that Mortus is hitting on Max and is unsure what to think about it.

"Bizzare" he speaks only half loud....

"Well back to business....the Ruggbroders might help us...or kill us if they are part of it. We have no time to waste on stories of Undead and women on fire. We should consider fleeing if we donīt like what we see if Greta returns. I still canīt put a shirt on but I guess I might be able to carry my goods...lets pack everything up and prepare to fly and escape through the backdoor of the inn.

Also where are Heinrich and Julian? Mortus do you have any idea? Did you find out anything about the demon worshippers?"

Klaus is chewing his lip...if he gets caught following this man it could mean death.

"I will follow him but only if Ruggbroder offers a fortune if we could reveal them as demon worshipers. You should check the sewers below Teugens place...Adelring or what it was perhaps they meet in another room around there. Another good place to search in the sewers would be below the temples of the city. I donīt think it is a sound idea to take Max with you, he is still hurt and it would be a desaster should he die."

Klaus will put on the salve on his back as good as he can wash his hands if there is a bowl of water around  and then too try to put on his shirt very carefully but leave his leather jerkin lying on the bed.

"Ahh.....well....I like the idea that you follow Teugen. I will wait here for Greta to return and then try to speak with Ruggbroder and try to haggle some payment for all of us. If we manage to bring this Order Serpentarius down he will immensly profit of it. What about the thieves den? Should I tell Ruggbroder about that one? I think there are some goods of his down there too."

What I meant is that I never mentioned the name of Heronymous Ruggbroder or however his name is spelled, it is true that I mentioned the Ruggbroder family but not who the responsible contact is. Also Heinrich doesnīt know that the contact was completed as this info is known by everyone but him so the best he can tell the captain is that the ruggbroders might be involved and that klaus wanted to bargain with them a deal about us gathering intel on the ordo and sell it to them.

So my suggestion would be....two teams one shadowing Teugen one shadowing Steinhager (with the assumption we start the shadowing of Steinhager at his office and Teugen at the building he was the other day...where stumpf and Benck were) most likely we will end up at teugens house (if we canīt shadow them we just go directly to the sewers under Teugens villa) from there we try to gain access to the house, sneak to the walls and from listening to the walls crawling through some bushes hopefully undetected where they hold their meeting, one or more of us try to sneak in and listen to what is said in the meeting if possible, if there are guards placed in a manner that we canīt get past we wait for the meeting to end and abdcut one or better two of the lesser members of the ordo and take them for questioning to the able person of Ruggbroder...I think Greta will know where we have to bring them.

The idea of shadowing them is that we know the way they take towards the meeting but actually it is a risk and we do not gain much by it. Also I think it wouldnīt be smart to abdcut Teugen or Steinhager rather someone else of this meeting Magirius guy for example.


IF we get valuable information out of them we will be filthy rich.

Heinrich will then betray the party by telling everything we have learned to Sir Martin and hopefully we are not punished by him or can escape his wrath.

Additional information:

- You know Teugen's offices are at the town hall, and that he will probably be there until dusk.

- Also, Ruggbroder described to Klaus the appearance of Fredrick Magirius, the man he suspects is a member of the ordo and has suggested you kidnap.

I'm okay with Mortus and Klaun going off and getting themselves killed following Steinhager. I'm the only one with the shadowing skill, and being followed by multiple people is likely to attract attention.

Post by: Fandir Nightshade on June 26, 2012, 11:28:57 AM
Klaus doesnīt know anything about Heinrich and Sir Martin he knows nothing about the involvement of Heinrich with teh Barons guards. All he knows is that he is suited very well for the mission and that he should report to Ruggbroder what is going on.

I am sure 1000 gold crowns will help Mortus with her plans.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)

yes but Heinrich knows about Klaus and Sir martin and why klaus may not have wanted to wait for the guards.   One thousand crowns would come in very handy.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Fandir Nightshade on June 26, 2012, 11:36:32 AM
I think Heinrich thinks that Klaus should be whipped on a daily basis....for crimes commited in the past and crimes he will commit int he future.

So lets see to those 1000 crowns and how we best earn them.

MAX HAS TO SURVIVE THIS!

Max's plan is to survive this. And be a hero!



Looking through the later parts of the enemy within campaign, I think I want to run all of it apart from the Kislev one, which looks awful. So that would mean three more adventures after this one, plus some short adventures in between. I don't regret skipping 'Mistaken Identity' either.

That's the plan anyway. Maybe we'll all get sick of it and the game will just stop somewhere.

The adventure doesn't really provide enough motivation for the players, I think! It's not as though they have any idea what could happen.

It relies on the players investigating because they are here to play a game and that's just what you do.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on June 26, 2012, 10:39:09 PM
Regarding Teugen's office: it's in the town hall, somewhere (it's a big building). Are you planning to wait until the town hall is closed and break in, or sneak in while it's open and hide somewhere until everyone has gone?

Since it's in the middle of a square that is fairly busy even at night, breaking in might be difficult without being seen.



How long do we have??

All night?

I would imagine that we would go in while it is open and wait.

Where is his house.   I can't remember but is it in his house that the meeting is being held because if not we should consider breaking in there rather than the warehouse after the office

Well no I am sure they are demon worshipers as otherwise it would make no sense that they have the summoning circle and access to that room from the office of Steinhager it is highly unlikely that they are innocent and therefore we are acting out of the need to safe the city....very vigilante like but Klaus DID try to settle the whole affair by telling the officials and we all know how that one turned out.

Not sure she'd wear a long dress to go into battle in either! Unless she plans to stand on a hill and cast spells without getting near the fighting. Which is possible.

Post by: Fandir Nightshade on July 01, 2012, 11:22:09 AM
Well ...I donīt think so. We are used to wanted pictures of photographies that are handed out to all people working in the law enforcement which then make it easy to identify the culprits. Right now the captain of the watch might have a description of a group of people, a women with brown hair, a dwarf, some ginger skinny youth, some average size blond guy maybe even with some details like an Averlander dialect flooging scars etc. but almost nobody knows how exactly we look like, maybe some individual guards. You guys were seen running in the midst of the night, hard to identify you features even by the guards who saw you, Max and klaus faces were covered by black soot only their eyes showing the rest of them black also hard to figure out what we look like cleaned. So even if the people who saw us would see us again during daylight with a clear look to our faces might not recognize us.....guards that only have a description of us will even have a much harder time.

So as long as we change clothes and equipment a bit it will be hard to find out that we are the guys the watch looks after. I wonder what will happen the next day...how the watch wants to force the Barons guards out. Also i wonder if I can convince Megerius to switch sides and tell us everything we need to know......right now the only persons in power that might be able to help us are the Ruggbroders and the Baron and his retinue. If I get  more intel out of Megerius Heinrich might consider going to Sir Martin to organize us more soldiers to help bust the ritual.

hopefully there is more than one dwarf in town!

I think it would be really great if he can tell us which warehouse it will be in, then perhaps we can sneak in before the ritual through the sewers and ambush them? We can push crates onto them all and max and heinrich can bow them.
And then maybe set them on fire.

Nooooooo....I have to prepare everything for tomorrow how we get the location of the warehouse (as Friedrich wonīt be home it seems and therefore....there is no way to get the intel except:

intercepting the courier bringing the note

asking in favours of some goons Greta might now of that thieves guild, one of their thugs might now the place they have to guard tomorrow.

shadowing another inner circle member

in any case the sacrifice to prepare the temple will happen as otherwise we wonīt be able to bust the ritual with the inner circle members at the site.

As Klaus is a carful person he wants to try all three approaches. Hire a thief out of the pit to shadow one of the other inner circle members (or heinrich could do this), intercept the courier (job for Julian,  Klaus, Max and Mortus maybe), ask in favours of the thieves guild or threaten one of those goons  (maybe Greta).

If we find the location before the ritual starts we could think about some signal and hide inside and look what happens and in an discriminating moment we will signal the others outside (hopefully prepared by Greta and maybe Heinrich if he wants to report to Sir Martin) and bust the ritual before demons are summoned and all hell breaks loose.

No one has read the relevant documents. Maybe because they don't know that the ritual will be held in a warehouse, since Klaus hasn't been able to tell them that yet.

Klaus should go talk to the others and find out how their investigation went before he does anything else. Plus it's after midnight so he's not going to be able to get much else done. And it's past Max's bed time!


By the way, I've decided that the way the actual adventure is written kind of sucks. Players investigate --> hit brick wall --> some NPC gives them information --> repeat until end! I'm glad I didn't try to run it like that.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)

The plot assumes the players will go around asking everyone about the Ordo Septenarius, which triggers a visit from an NPC... if they don't (and you guys didn't - why would you?) it breaks down.

Rather like the way it breaks down if you don't go after the goblin and find the temple in the sewers. I hope the next adventure is easier to run! I've had to make up loads of stuff for this one.

Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 03, 2012, 11:50:25 AM
The thing is - and as Magirius has now explained - the Ordo isn't supposed to be a secret demon worshiper cult (though it actually is). It's supposed to be a secret charitable and social club, like the freemasons. If you do ask around, you find this out... but since the players only learn about it in the context of a demon summoning, they'd be stupid to go around asking questions! Yet that's exactly what the adventure assumes they will do.

Did they playtest this book?

Crikey, it was ten pages ago! Better award some now. Also, anyone who was wounded regains one lost wound (Heinrich, Klaus and Max again?).


EDIT: 100 EXP each!

I might have to cut back in future, in case I'm overdoing the exp rewards.

Max finds that his experiences over the last few days have increased his nerve. He spends his EXP on +10 Cl.

Already? Oh, I suppose you will have - you didn't have as many advancements open as the others. Right, you have completed your first career and are now eligible to change to a new one! It costs 100 EXP to change career. You will then have a new set of advances open to you, and a new set of skills to learn (you have to pay 100 EXP to buy each new skill).

However, you can't change career overnight: it will take some time and training. Plus you need another 100 EXP anyway. You'll be able to become a L1 wizard after this adventure is complete (and this is the last day, of course).

If you flee take Max with you!

As for EXPs: well, you've all gained 400 EXP so far in this adventure, I think (Mortus had 50 less because of that day she sat in a pub doing nothing)? So it won't take that long to gain the same amount again. I've looked at the EXP scheme for the next adventure, and it seems to hand them out pretty generously.

But yes: money is the most important thing for pretending to be a count.

I think the absolute best I can get it too is 43, and then a handgun with +10 to hit. Still missing half the time. I should have cheated that roll a bit! The value I could generate were 12-30 and I got fricking 13.

I never felt like we had time to enjoy the schaffenfest, or do that side quest.

no! I'd have liked to do the thieves guild but the thing I like most of this adventure is the time scale not long enough to get bored and lose interest, we’ve gathered clues quickly and now a tense ambush to finish it off.

I guess they wanted to equalize the higher toughness which is really awesome in this system but I wouldnīt mind Finlay having +10 Bs....also I like it when I always have the feeling that I missed something and that I have to hurry...well not always the relax phases between adventures are also very nice...and Klaus does have to get romantically involved with Greta if she isnīt too annoyed of him already....and spend vast amount of money.

True, the toughness bonus is powerful.

I'm not convinced game balance was ever on the table for WFRP though: you should see the stats elves get! But you won't because I won't ever let anyone play one! Stupid cheating elves.


Maybe Death on the Reik will be a frantic race against time in the same way as Lord of the Rings - it takes Frodo forever to get to Mordor, but he's rushing the whole time. Well, not during the first bit where he buys a house and faffs around for months. But otherwise!

Maybe if they have simple triggers but I think if warehouse 13 is the new temple it will be guarded. :)

Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 04, 2012, 01:55:08 PM
Can julian set traps with triggers he controls?

Yes... he could pull on a rope or wire or something? He'd have to be fairly close by. He could rig nets to fall from the ceiling (if he bought nets, or used Heinrich's)? That sort of thing. Not sure really.

I guess you'd come up with an idea and then I'd roll dice with modifiers on them to see if it worked.

I donīt want to go into the sewers again...it is dark, it stinks and there are monsters.

I rather have we either beat some thugs into submission and sneak in or if they are not even around during the afternoon just enter the warehouse before set traps and prepare for the ritual.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Finlay on July 04, 2012, 10:46:47 PM
so what do our characters know, rufus?

When is the ritual meant to be, the night of the day which just started? But then they need to do the sacrifice earlier to consecrate the temple.

I'd rather break it up while the sacrifice was going on, in case they like partially summon a demon, or summon one not in their control if we try and do it too late. Complicated by Ruggbroder wanting to catch them red handed.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 04, 2012, 11:38:13 PM
Is Klaus coming back to the inn after meeting Greta, so he can go to the temple with Mortus and Max?

Maybe Heinrich has something important to say first anyway, so we'll have to wait for Cannon.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Finlay on July 04, 2012, 11:46:36 PM
no one offered advice to julian if he should check out steinhagers warehouse at all.



I know it's an investigative adventure, and I'm sure if I really was trying to hunt demon worshippers I'd be paying more attention and maybe taking notes. but I have real life stuff to remember, which pushes what I should be remembering for this out.

I thought Mortus and Max would join me meeting Greta if not I will come back to the inn afterwards.

Also you guys if the pace is too fast you can always say so and I will try to slow myself down I donīt think the aim of the excercise is to "beat" the adventure but to create a pleasant atmospheric story, and axe villains to the face.

You could join the meet the Great troupe I think it would even be smart as you are more warrior like than klaus and could talk with her about the ambush and the traps you thought about installing. I think going to the warehouse is a bad idea as we wouldnīt gain anything and risk too much.

Now it is avoiding the ritual...I wonder why Heinrich doesnīt want to go to the Captain of the Barons guards Sir martin told him to report immediatly.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Finlay on July 05, 2012, 10:20:22 AM
ok. I also thought about taking a stroll around warehouse 13 t see if there were a load of thugs around.

I looked at the wee map but I cant tell if there is a sewer into it. (sorry rufus!)

I think we will turn into skaven if we go into the sewers again.

I guess checking warehouse 13 might be a good idea.

Post by: Finlay on July 05, 2012, 10:28:50 AM
here’s the “my character is way better than me” dilemma like with Caspar’s charisma. Julian would just know by looking if there was a sewer. If there is, I think it’s definitely a good idea to use that. I find it hard to believe we’ll be able to sneak in past loads of thugs.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Fandir Nightshade on July 05, 2012, 10:34:19 AM
I think we can always ask Rufus what he thinks our characters would deem viable like Klaus who made the Int check to figure out if Greta was lying to him (I still donīt know but Klaus is convinced).


I like it when you add stuff like Julian smoking his pipe or telling Max to bugger off with his human gods.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on July 05, 2012, 12:47:51 PM
I think though that if there are sewers they will be filled with thugs as well.   We should look around, maybe a wander down that general direction after we visit the temple.

Post by: Fandir Nightshade on July 06, 2012, 06:48:36 AM
We donīt have to, the sensible thing would be to hide at the warehouse and ambush them instead of fighting them on their turf, they HAVE to go to the warehouse as it is the temple they have prepared and once the moon passes they canīt do the ritual.

Klaus would like to save Greta though but he is too scared.

I would agree that heinrich is the man for the job, KLaus would like to join and help out if the need should arise....mayhaps Julian and Klaus wait outside. Max and Mortus try to organize the Sigmarites...or maybe Klaus should go with them as he is the most eloquent speaker.


Mortus isnīt really the sneaking type.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on July 06, 2012, 01:58:28 PM
We need Kluas to try and organise some things, he has contacts and stuff.   I think after Heinrich Mortus is handy in a fight, she is tough and her war cries are surprisingly strong :).

She is not very sneaky but then none of us are very sneaky and she is okay at it.

OK, so Heinrich and Mortus are going to Magirius's house for sure. Are Klaus and Julian going as well, or are they going elsewhere (Max will do as he is told)?

If enough people go to Magirius house Klaus will go for the Temple of Sigmar asking Max to come with him. Julian can decide where he expects more action.

Post by: commandant on July 06, 2012, 11:55:28 PM
Well there might be something in the room and as badly wounded as Mortus is she is not going to moving very fast so if there are more of them she is safest in the room where at least she can hide behind the door.   I think there is a good chance there are only two of them, anyways it is not very important because this badly wounded and with so few magic points left there is little that Mortus can do in the final showdown.

Maybe, maybe not.   I do think Mortus handled this one badly, still she seems to still be alive.   :)   She could have handled them if not for the surprise.   

I think Mortus tends to not have that much faith in the sneaking aroundness of people :)

I thought it was the warehouse rather than the house that was the trap.   

Still Mortus may have gotten out alive, drawn out all of the thugs and helps Heinrich (which was my intent at the start, though getting almost dead was not part of the plan) and maybe Julian and the watch can help frighten off the thugs.   Now she needs to think of a proper story to tell the watch or maybe we can just escape. 

Still in order to protect Julian Mortus should pretend for a while she don't know him.   Ahh well.   Doctor here she comes.

You could... if you can convince a priest to heal you. They don't do it lightly!

Also the L1 healing spell won't work on someone who is heavily wounded, so you still need a doctor first.

What are listen tests taken against, initiative?

No stats are used... they work off a flat percentage, depending on the noise level and the distance.

Soft noises are 30% to hear, and carry 4 yards.
Normal noises 60% and 8 yards.
Loud noises 100% and 16 yards.

Plus there are modifiers.

Mortus rolled a load of 70s and above.

Julian didn't want to axe anyone in the open, he's glad he didn't have to.

Greta is more than twice as strong as Julian.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 07, 2012, 05:03:47 PM
Not quite, since you can only gain another +30% to your BS (you've already taken the +10% upgrade). So it's only 88% with a normal weapon and 98% with a special one (like the longbow, which is S4... and targeteers get to learn that skill).

That sounds amazing, and it is... but there are modifiers to hit for range, cover, and stuff like that!

Yes, it's afternoon now. Plus you can't just go to sleep whenever you want! Mortus isn't sleepy.

I guess the rest of you are a bit behind Klaus time-wise, so you could arrive at the warehouse not long after he did if you go soon.

Let's move it along to the endgame. You're as ready as you will ever be! Besides, sleep sucks against wizards. You can use magic points to augment your saving throw against spells.

No it isn`t. Seriously we have planned this now for two days. We wait for the ritual to start and then bust in hopefully with some Ruggbroder guards and Sigmarites outside also joining the bashing our job is to make sure nobody escapes and that Teugen is caught in the act...

Kidnapping someone doesnīt help this at all, nor walking in the front door.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on July 08, 2012, 05:15:39 PM
There is a risk of us not interrupting the ritual in time though and therefore it would be good to kidnap a person, remember that we don't need to worry as much about due process.   Teugen being in the same place as the prepared ritual should be enough to hang them both.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Fandir Nightshade on July 08, 2012, 05:18:23 PM
The ritual will climax at midnight.....so if they start at dusk we should be able to find a moment to jump in...unless we all fall asleep and wake up again close after midnight we should be fine. If you kidnap someone (how? they should have bodyguards that might be very edgy right now and all of them should be able to fight better than Heinrich, we were lucky so far with our fights) the ritual possibly wonīt start and then what?

You lot should get into the warehouse then we wait ...then we spring the ambush and capture/kill everyone involved with the ordo septenarius.

How about nets to trap them....at the entry and exit spots. Or some crates that will crash down and block all exits except for the main entrance.

Hmm Or crates crashing down on their heads.


For example we could place some crates close to the loading area on the upper floor (or place there something we want to throw down to block the entrance....a pity we donīt have another boris....or two) the fat merchants wonīt be able to squeeze through the windows so unless they flee via the sewers we should be able to trap them.

If you wanted to disrupt the ritual before it starts you should have at least waited for the Ordo to assemble, Teugen is not even there yet. It is a big messy mess this way. Also right now it is unlikely that Ruggbroder or the Sigmar priest is in position to help us. We most likely will die and if not bringing down the ordo is ...like impossible.

I'm sorry, is Heinrich familiar with how long rituals take? It's not impossible to take down the Ordo. We know that Steinhager and Teugen are the ones who are performing the big nasty evil spell, so if we take them down, then we don't have to worry about the rest of the Ordo and can leave. Heinrich is not coming back to Bogenheifer.

Nor does Heinrich care for the help of your Sigmarite priest, being a casual devotee of Verena. Very casual.


On a more serious note to rufus:

Didn't that count as a surprise? Shouldn't I have gotten that one free shot and then go in init order the next round? Is Steinhager's init better than mine? Just curious.

Klaus told everyone when and how the ritual will take place that Ruggbroder will post warriors outside that will bust in once we give them a signal also I am pretty sure he made clear how important it is to catch them in the act.


"It is important that we donīt call the guards to early (because it is more dramatic) because we have to catch im the vile act. It is about time that I meet with Greta and organize the Ruggbroder bodyguards and what kind of signal we are going to use but you can join us. Julian, Heinrich what about you? Shall we meet afterwards close to the warehouse perhaps we should choose a location from Julians map and prepare ourselves for the ambush?"


Even if we bring down Steinhager the rest of the Ordo might escape....no 5000 gp.....no saving of Bogenhafen (as they can do the ritual another time).....only shit.

Cannon please ask Rufus if you can take your action back and reconsider it....it would really spoil all the fun for me if you go upon this like you did.

Cannon, did you forget that no one actually likes Leroy Jenkins. I almost feel as if the whole adventure was pointless now.

You'd rather face demons?

Fine, if everyone is completely opposed to me playing my character, and if Rufus will allow it, then take back my action, and let's all get killed your way.

I'd rather deal with Steinhager than whatever monstrosity this ritual is actually going to summon. It's not my fault he rolled maximum damage.
Considering we killed the demon without being wounded, I wouldn’t! also we actually needed to capture or kill more than one of them, and also have more evidence. Most likely now is we would be captured and executed seeing as teugen etc control the town. If it was teugen not steinhager, and together we all killed him and stopped the ritual, fine. But we didn’t even know steiny was a wizard, knew teugen was the ring leader, and knew they can replace people to complete the ritual.

I donīt want to bully you into something especially if you still think you are in the right, but where donīt you see that we have to wait for the ritual to start?

What exactly makes you think they open a portal and demons pour through 15 minutes into a several hour taking ritual.

The only bitter pill that we might have to swallow might be someone sacrificed during the blessing of the temple (could be a little child or something else) but Heinrich should be rational enough to see the bigger picture...the cult assembled and ready for an ambush.

He is acting like a criminal thug killing whomever he feels like if that is his character...feel free, but it will be hard for any of the party members to go along....well Mortus might want to as stated have some kids with him.

Post by: Fandir Nightshade on July 09, 2012, 11:32:02 AM
I would prefer we rewind to you guys coming in and steinhager entering the warehouse and instead of shooting him to the face we wait for him preparing the temple and after he leaves we can discuss what to do...and I would really like everyone to join the discussion and not move along and later do whatever he wants.

IF we want to enjoy this we should work on party dynamics, this doesnīt mean that we should alter our characters, Klaus is an unlikable fellow as he is a rogue and a coward still I tried to find ways that would make the other party members at least consider having him around (5000 gp) the way Mortus went all looney and the way Heinrich antagonizes him at every possible moment makes it hard for Klaus to desire having them around if you guys have ideas how Klaus could be more likeable and still in character I would ask you to tell them to me. I donīt want to have better stats, more money or win more arguments in an rpg session but just an enjoyable story...for everyone involved.

I dont even think its that in character. Would a succesful bounty hunter not have a better/more prepared ambush plan? acting so impetuously like that would surely lead to death in the harsh world of the empire.

he was on fire on 0 wounds. So you needed one of us to put the fire out. But we had to deal with steiny firing fireballs at us and the 3 thugs outside. as well as being worried about dying ourselves, or annoyed at heinrich from diverting the plan.

Someone does put the fire out and max wastes his arrow on steiny... Then we are lying in the warehouse having to fight the actual boss without the arrow, and with heinrich and mortus real close to dying.

Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on July 09, 2012, 10:47:15 PM
It appears that this blew up and was solved before I came online.

While I think Klaus grabbing Heinrich before he fired is a good idea.   I am not sure Mortus would agree, I know things that Mortus does not know.   Given the information that was available to Heinrich at the time, and more importantly the information that Heinrich did not have, I think it is not an out of character action for Heinrich to attempt to shoot him.   You must remember that

1: Our aim is to disrupt the ritual, prevent it from happening.

2: A bounty hunter would normally be bring in his prey dead or alive and as most bounty hunter's prey is dangerous it is normally easier and better to kill them first.   Also it is important to note that the medieval (and warhammer world) life is cheap and not that important.   Most people knights, police, bounty hunters and stuff would not think twice about killing people.

3: We did not know that ye-man was a wizard.   There was no information to suggest that he was.   We know that Teugen is a wizard or at least has magical ability but there was nothing I remember to suggest that the other guy was.

4: Heinrich has been very successful with his bow up until now, therefore his confidence would be high that he could take a good shot, therefore it is more likely for him to do so then normal.

5: We believe that the ritual needs all seven people to complete.

6: Heinrich is scared of demons and more so of the type of demons that these guys are going to raise.

Therefore it is not unreasonable for him to consider that taking out yeman and hiding the body and waiting for the next guy is a good idea.   I also think that people have too modern a view of law enforcement.   Being friends with ye-man is good reason for the law enforcement to look into his actions and as soon as they find he is even interested in magic they may burn him just to be sure.   Being connected with somebody that is going to raise a demon and being interested in magic is normally enough to get you shortened by a head.   Sir Martin and the baron are not going to be worried about legal niceties.

On the whole I think we are better off not taking a shot at him and having Heinrich killed but I don't think that it is a OOC move for him to make.

Spellbook in Steinhager's safe.

But of course, being a wizard is not illegal. Demonology is.

Killing a town councilor for putting some bits of copper on the floor? Not proof of demonology, or of anything! Steinhager is virtually above the law in this town, unless caught actually committing an unforgivable crime by reliable witnesses.

Post by: Finlay on July 09, 2012, 11:00:03 PM
1) the ritual starts at dusk and ends at midnight, plenty of time.

2) a bounty hunter would be motivated by money, and he knows he has to get more than one of them

5) we know they can/will replace people (magirius). Only Teugen is needed.

7)there are 3 stevedors outside ready to come in and kick our ass

8) mortus is almost dead.

9)we are expecting help.

10) teugen etc own the town. You need absolutely damnable evidence. We already went to sir martin without evidence... what happened there.

Well I hope it is evidence enought that they placed the magic symbol have their demon cowls and are about to kill the girl...Klaus would wait for the girl to be butchered but I can agree that Heinrich, Mortus, Max and Julian wouldnīt.

My suggested plan of action would be Klaus whispers the battle plan, first Klaus will throw his stinkbomb and Julian will use his trap, then  Max to shoot TEugen with his magical arrow. Heinrich shoots Steinhager Julian and Klaus jump into the circle like berserkers yelling and smashing about them Julian should either finish Teugen or Steinhager, Klaus will strike for the pale man. Mortus can do what she deems best but I suggest she stays out of melee one hit could mean death.

What do you guys say?

Even then...as max canīt read this forum and before Heinrich and Max shoot the same guy while Klaus jumps into the circle of cultists and gets Julians crates on his head it would make sense to take 30 seconds to quickly tell everyone what is to do....

"Max you shoot Teugen, Heinrich Steinhager, Julian the crates I will throw the stink bomb then we go in and smash what resistance is left! GO"

Now I want to wait if Finlay or Commandante want to add something then....we go ahead and smash some cultists.

Well but Max has the super striking arrow of Sigmar, but I guess you are right best to bring Teugen down no matter what he might be a higher level mage and cast spells worse than that fireball thingy....Ok

"Max Heinrich you bring down teugen, Julian the crates!"

Klaus throwing his stinky bomb and jumping in between the cultists screaming Sigmar!! ....HAMMER TIME

You will get a surprise round (where the cultists can't act) since your attack will be surprising!

Though, as we discovered in a parallel universe, some of them have better initiative than any of you and will go first in the next round.


I wonder why Klaus and Mortus never bought missile weapons? Klaus is a decent shot.

1000 gp!!!

Perhaps Heinrich will see that Klaus has his uses and his methods are sometimes appropriate when he gets the money.....I just hope Ruggbroder sticks to his word.


Other than that Klaus might become a bit softer because of Max his absolute do goody thing he has running and perhaps also the joy of seeing the puppy happy should we succeed and him realizing that he CAN achieve something and people even acknowledge that might help.

In the end though Klaus will always stack the cards in his favour and after that ...maybe....think about a gain for the others.

Yes and if Heinrich would know how often Klaus considered switching sides and joining Teugen he might want to kill him outright but regarding breaking the law Klaus is the good guy....and Heinrich should be in chains or even dangling from a noose. So if Heinrich is morally flexible regarding killing some watchmen on duty....why would it be so hard to pass on Klaus pretending to be a count?

I just try to figure out a way how the group can stick together without anyon making a new character. I wouldnīt mind Heinrich disliking Klaus and also making jokes of him once in a while or showing others what a bragard and coward he is, but threatening his life or destroying his dreams would make it impossible to stick around Heinrich.

Julian murdered the watchman. Heinrich tried to spare him.  :laugh:

The law can be stretched for "the greater good" which is clearly a tool for deciding how much morality Heinrich wants to hold onto.

But impersonating nobility? That's a pretty tough pill to swallow in a society built on a rigid class structure.

Maybe Klaus can become an actual count!  :::cheers:::

What has he done that is cowardly that heinrich has seen? He ran away in the sewers but I don’t think heinrich saw, and then he came back for us. He went to the meeting with greta and ruggbroder, he risked his neck to speak to sir martin. The only actual bad thing he has done was stealing the potions which we don’t know about, and killing boris which we don’t know about. Surely. Unless I am forgetting something?

What has he done that is cowardly that heinrich has seen? He ran away in the sewers but I don’t think heinrich saw, and then he came back for us. He went to the meeting with greta and ruggbroder, he risked his neck to speak to sir martin. The only actual bad thing he has done was stealing the potions which we don’t know about, and killing boris which we don’t know about. Surely. Unless I am forgetting something? Our actions have been much more overtly reprehensible.

You're no fun.

Well but still leaves Heinrich as a burglar and arsonist....and yes even nobles fear the unseen lurkers of the dark gutters once in a while.

He is a rapscallion toooooo is all I say which would be a good thing as him not chewing bubblegum and kicking ass is cool and I think he shoudl stick around.....but be less harsh towards poor Klaus.....


Oh right the potions...I could make Steinhager shit himself to death.

I just like to pick on you. I know Heinrich has no reason to want to harm Klaus now. I do not think he would mistake him for an actual noble though, and he would surely protest such a pretense. Besides, just buying the clothes and jewelry required to pass for a noble would beggar us all.

Post by: Finlay on July 10, 2012, 11:35:36 AM
I’m just honestly trying to figure out where Heinrich would get this bad feeling from. It is only because you as Ray can read Klaus’ thoughts and his actions when heinrich and the other PCs are not there
In the game I think everyone would actually think Klaus quite heroic, if a bit avaricious.
Heinrich shoots first and asks questions later. He was told to report back to sir martin and didn’t.
I never really imagined bounty hunters as “goodies” really, they are the morally grey or bad version of the law surely! Motivated by money and action?

I can go with dislking the braggard, or his habit for gambling or just taking a dislike to someone as is natural. Running away in the sewers (I said before I might have missed something he did, which is why I was asking) was cowardly, but understandable?
But I’m not convinced there is a reason for such enmity. –I just remembered another good thing he did, sneaking into the teugen mansion to find details of the mission. Brave!

But there you go, I suppose that is the challenge of RPG games, coming up with good reasons to form the group and stick together other than “well, we are adventuring”- and I guess why most D and D groups are at least all neutral.

I guess rufus is waiting for commandant due to the fireball episode. Hurry up commandant!

Finlay, Heinrich is reserved and quiet, and while not a shining beacon of goody goody-ness, he believes in the law. He finds the opposite in Klaus.

Bogenhafen has tried his patience, and he's been lashing out at the city by setting it on fire.

He's certainly not going to tempt fate again with a judge more interested in lashings than laws, or Sir Martin who doesn't much care about anything and isn't going to reward him.

Heinrich doesn't believe Klaus about the reward from Ruggbroder either, because it seems too much.

I'll try to keep quiet and stay out of the way from now on.  :dry:

Nobody replied to Klaus asking about Greta...I hope she is alright.

Cannon, no matter what Heinrich is flexible about the law if Klaus pretends to be a count he will do so on his own agenda and with his own money...if we get the Ruggbroder money he should be able to do so, maybe he could have a talk with Heinrich why a commoner with wits and bravery (which Klaus has shown in mysterious ways) shouldnīt be any less noble than someone who took the title some hundred years ago as a fur clad Unberogen. You know bravehearty and so on.

Not really lucky rolls, mortus and Klaus both missed. I wonder if you can cast spells when there are three people attacking you?
We attacked together and my trap worked too! Hurrah! Now unfortunately Julian is scared of the croc, or he will Grungni it in the face.



Julian doesnt believe about the reward either.

What has klaus done to show heinrich he doesnt believe in the law, apart from fleeing the watch- which everyone else did too? Julian doesnt believe in the law in this town as it is run by teugen and steiny.

axe face time. Spells seem quite powerful. If mortus gets to fireball people soon that would be good!

Julian needs to check on max and Klaus, if there is no immediate danger.
I think Klaus would now pay a bit more attention to Sigmar… he knows the gods are real. (maybe everyone knows they are real anyway? Not sure)

It seems quite easily that the demon could kill us all. I'm glad klaus went to the temple.

Klaus is aware of this ....and is very thankful to both gods, in retrospective he canīt remember why he charged into that combat like a lunatic in the first place.....stupid Sigmar.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 10, 2012, 01:32:36 PM
I cheated a bit on the demon, since you killed the wizards before they could react... plus I wanted to make him more interesting! He had a loose attitude to the spell-casting rules... but he was a Tzeentch demon, and we all know they cheat!

Besides, Klaus did a truckload of damage to him. Plus I exhausted Klaus's luck for the day... luck is such a useful skill.

Klaus the Demonslayer!


All the baddies are dead, other than some under the crates. The help will arrive in a moment! The doors exploded out with the wrath of Sigmar!

Oh, and the sacrifice girl didn't die. The demonfire didn't hit her (because I forgot she was there... but it didn't hit the guys under the crates either, so maybe it just hits you if you are standing up).

p.s. the demon's name was Gideon. He was Teugen's tutor, and has been following people around while invisible, and turning into children and hunchbacks.

Spoilers over Bogenhafen!

I'm going to talk about some of the things you missed or chose not to do in this adventure. And anything else I feel like mentioning.

Firstly: we skipped the actual first adventure of the Enemy Within campaign, 'Mistaken Identity.' Why? Because it's a bit rubbish, and would have put you all off playing. It's really short, and is just a couple of fights and a lot of red herrings. You end up arriving in Bogenhafen because you think you've inherited some money, but you haven't... in summary:

- players are at an inn, see a notice asking for adventurers to join the Count of Ostland's exciting expedition to the grey mountains to do something!
- players want to go to Altdorf to join the mission, so get on a coach. It's full and a noblewoman is mean to them.
- on the journey, they encounter some mutants eating the remains of the passengers of another coach. After killing them, they find one of the dead passengers looks exactly like one of the players.
- this passenger has a letter on him from a Bogenhafen law firm, saying he's inherited money. Players take the letter and proceed to Altdorf.
- but Altdorf is a waste of time, since the count has already left. No mission for them! They fight some random fools in an inn, and flee the city chased by the watch.
- a bounty hunter who was chasing the dead guy thinks one of the players is him, and hunts them. They kill him and his goons.
- they arrive in Bogenhafen to claim the inheritance... but it was all a trick by the bounty hunter, and isn't real.

So, you get no money, get disappointed several times, and don't even get to do anything interesting in Altdorf. The dead guy who looks like one of the players is a chaos cultist, and this is supposed to be an important plot point... but it actually isn't, and is never resolved by later adventures.

Glad we skipped it? I am.


On to Shadows... first, the real story behind Teugen's plan (I don't think there's any way to find this out during the game). While at the university of Nuln, Johannes Teugen became interested in demonology. He eventually summoned a demon called Gideon, and made a bargain with it: he would have seven years of prosperity, and learn sorcery from the demon... but after that his soul would be forfeit. Two years ago, Gideon killed Teugen's older brother, allowing him to take over the family business.

Teugen and Gideon devised a plan that Teugen believed would allow him to escape his fate. Instead of losing his soul, he would sacrifice seven willing people in his place. He founded the Ordo Septenarius, telling their inner circle that he could perform a ritual that would make the town immensely rich.

So Teugen planned to sacrifice the inner circle by performing the ritual. But Gideon was lying to him: it would actually open a stable chaos gate in the town, and allow Tzeentch himself to manifest in the real world.

Steinhager was taught magic by both Teugen and Gideon... separately, because neither trusted the other.


The adventure:

You did pretty much everything at the Schaffenfest, apart from visiting the livestock market (there's a table to roll on to see what animals are for sale!) and fighting the wrestler (he'd have beaten any of you). I did some of the random encounters, but not all.

The goblin incident is the first major problem with the adventure. The players are asked to go into the sewers after it, but if they don't then it's game over!

When they do go in, the first thing they see is the mysterious door, which turns out to lead to a thieves hideout. This has nothing to do with the main plot (and it's still there, if anyone wants to go and deal with it now). Having it be the first thing the players find is distracting, and could even derail the adventure.

The sewer has more random encounters, like mold, thieves, rats, bats, gas, and dodgy walkways. I just did the blob attack one (poor Boris).

I moved the dead dwarf so you'd reach it before the temple... in the book it's beyond it in an area players probably won't get to.

[story update: Teugen abducts the dwarf Gotri (the one from the stocks), takes him to the temple, cuts out his heart and uses it to summon a guardian demon to protect the temple.]

The players find the temple (hurrah!) and open the door, causing the guardian demon to appear and ask them to leave... boring, so I had it attack instead!


More later.

I'm glad everyone had fun! I certainly did. Thanks for playing!  :::cheers:::

So: probably everyone can change career now. Mortus and Klaus have obvious choices (wizard and charlatan). Do Julian and Heinrich know which ones they want? Or do you need more info?

Do you want to do anything more in Bogenhafen, or move right along to Death on the Reik? I just need you to walk out of town along the river to start that one!

Also, new careers mean training, and you need teachers (mostly... not all of you). We can do this abstractly before the next adventure, if you like. Say you stayed in town for a bit to learn new abilities.

My advice is to do that. Abstract training, week or two passes, leave town, next adventure starts!

Plus you can buy things with your massive wealth, too.



The only thing about opening adventure, exp for us

200 max for that one... and I think I gave you all at least 200 extra for this adventure, so it evens out.

Mortus is going to want to be a level 1 wizard

learn fireball
-100 xp (if fireball dose in fact blow people away)
find a way of increasing her magic points
-100 xp (I suppose)
Buy some good leather armour
-some wealth

(how will wearing armour effect her spell casting?)

Or what other choices does she have.   Can she learn new skill at the cost of 100 xp a shot?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 11, 2012, 01:39:45 AM
Career changes!

Reminder: you must finish your first career, taking every advance available. Then spend 100 EXP to change to one of your listed career exists (or alternately spend the 100 EXP to change to a basic career from the same class as your starting one... but advanced careers are better, mostly).

When you change, you get a new advance scheme. You can now buy these advances in the usual way, 100 EXP per +1 or +10. You also get access to a new set of skills... you must pay 100 EXP to learn each skill! They are not free.

Remember you cannot repeat a stat advance. So if you take a +10 WS, and your new career also has +10 WS, you can't take it. If it has +20 WS though, you can... but it's only another +10 over what you have, not +20. It's only +20 relative to your starting stat.

Your social standing may also change. I can sort this out later.


Mortus

Mortus wants to be a level one wizard.

Advance scheme:
W +2
I +10
Int +10

(you've already had W +1 and Int +10, remember... not sure why there's an Int +10 here too! Redundant)

Magic point: you get some more of these! I'll work it out.

Skills: (100 EXP each to learn)
cast spells: battle magic level one
identify plants
magic sense
rune lore
scroll lore (Mortus has this already)

Level one spells cost 100 EXP each to learn, petty spells cost 50 EXP each. You of course need the cast spells skill before you can cast spells.

You have to complete this career (learn all skills and take all advances) to move on to wizard level 2... alternately you can become a specialist wizard of L1 instead (Elementalist, Illusionist, Necromancer, Demonologist).


Klaus

Wants to be a charlatan!

advance scheme:
WS+10
BS+10
T+1
W+4
I+20
Dex+20
Ld+20
Int+20
Cl+20
WP+20
Fel+30

New skills to learn:
blather
charm
disguise
evaluate
mimic
palm object
public speaking
seduction
wit

Most info is in my post above. Your magic points increase automatically. But you need the cast spells level one skill to cast level one spells... so you could use 300 EXP to change to wizard, learn cast spells L1, and learn fireball.

Armour makes spells cost more magic points. It's generally not worth doing, but I'll check the numbers for you... +2 magic points per spell for each item of armour! Don't bother.

Magic sense is a skill... uh, let's see...you can tell if an object or person is magical by touching it or them.

I am upgrading my profile to become a wizard level 1 and cast battle magic level 1 so 200 hundred points gone.   Mortus has the book of level one spells so she should not need a teacher I think.

I think I will take fireball but are there any other level one spells that are interesting?

As for the armour I am just noting that Mortus has only 5 wounds so one shoting her is not so hard

Heinrich

has options... Assassin, targeteer and slaver are advanced careers, footpad, mercenary and protagonist are basic ones. I'll assume he doesn't want to be a slaver or footpad... and probably not a protagonist either (it's a professional bully).

Targeteer (a professional archer who competes in tournaments for money)

advance scheme:
BS+40
S+1
T+1
W+4
I+20
A+1
Dex+30
Ld+10
Int+10
Cl+30
WP+10
Fel+20

new skills:
marksmanship (already has this)
specialist weapon: longbow (S4 bow)

careers exits: assassin, mercenary, outlaw chief.


Or, there's the assassin  (this has roleplay issues, since you do actually have to be an assassin, and assassinate people! Which is of course illegal, so I imagine he wouldn't be keen)

Advance scheme:
WS+30
BS+30
S+1
T+1
W+6
I+30
A+2
Dex+30
Ld+20
Int+20
Cl+20
WP+20
Fel+20

skills to learn:
concealment rural
concealment urban
disguise
marksmanship
prepare poison
scale sheer surface
shadowing
silent move rural
silent move urban
specialist weapons (each a different skill) - blowpipe, flail, fist weapons, lasso, parrying weapon, throwing weapon, two handed weapon

career exits: mercenary, outlaw chief, witch hunter


Mercenary is a basic career, but is quite good. May as well be a targeteer over that though.

Not much you can do about the wounds thing... but you have T5, which is very good.

Yes, 200 EXP will get you to be a wizard with the cast spells L1 skill. Then 100 EXP to learn a spell.

Fireball is very good for killing things. Other options:

- cure light wounds: heal d6 wounds on someone, unless heavily wounded (has only 1 or 2 wounds left)
- steal mind (WP test of be unable to act for d6 rounds)
- wind blast: make a blast of wind!
- flight: fly 48 yards.

there are some others too... but fireball is best as a first choice. Time to admit to the others you're a wizard if you use that though!

Max knows Mortus is interested in magic but does anybody else?

I have updated my profile.   I will add fireball I think.   I also have 50 points lying around.   Not sure what to do with them :)

Julian

could be an alchemist's apprentice, artillerist, artizan, gunner, sapper, or tunnel fighter.

Alchemist's apprentice is a basic career, but leads to being an alchemist. This is a 4-level magic career. They are less good at spells than wizards, but are better at potions and things, and can make gunpowder.

artizans kind of suck

Gunner (commander of cannon batteries)

advance scheme:
WS+10
BS+20
S+2
W+2
I+20
Dex+10
Ld+30
Int+10
Cl+20
WP+10
Fel+10

skills to learn:
drive cart
engineer
spcialist weapons (each a different skill): firearms, bombs, cannon

career exits: artillerist, mercernary captain, marine (merc captain is a very good fighty career!)


Artillerist is almost the same, but with specialist weapon: bolt thrower and catapult instead of the gunpowder ones.

Sapper is very similar... you get specialist weapon: bomb and catapult

Tunnel fighter is a basic career... it has some handy combat skills though:

advance scheme:
WS+20
S+1
W+2
I+10
A+1
Ld+10
Cl+10

skills to learn:
dodge blow
orientation
scale sheer surface
specialist weapon: two handed weapons
strike mighty blow
strike to injure
strike to stun

career exits: sapper, smuggler, tomb robber


So, I'd recommend either gunner or tunnel fighter... or alchemist's apprentice if you want to be an alchemist!

No one knows yet, but if you cast a fireball it will be obvious!

You could spend 50 on a petty magic spell, or save it and hope to get another 50 later.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 11, 2012, 02:37:19 AM
Good choice!

Hmm, I think you only have enough EXP to complete your career and then change to targeteer - none spare to spend on advances or the longbow skill. Right? You've had 700 EXP total, and needed 600 to take all advances on bounty hunter... so that's right. Good!

Don't worry, there will be time to learn to use a longbow during the next adventure. It takes place over a greater period of time.

Ok I will first post in here and then you can take over what you deem reasonable and realistic to the players thread...or just tell me what you think is ok.

Lets start!

my 300 xp will be used like this

+10 Bs
learning to read and write
gaining the last wound and completing the career of the Gambler

1222 gold pieces

buying list for Klaus
he wants to have
- a pair of masterfully crafted duel pistols (mabe Max can help a little with choosing the pair of guns as his familiy is in the weapons business)
(http://www.waffen-onlineshop.de/artikel/Schusswaffen/A764135.jpg)

- a fancy warhammer as hand weapon
(http://www.thorsschmiede.de/shop/files/article_pictures/7758.jpg)

- sets of clothes one very good one and 3-4 noble travel clothes in the colours of Averland yellow and black with some burgundy red splashed in.

- jewelry
rings, a necklace with a hammer

-pay for a courtesan for max...see to do list


To do list
for the first night of partying, he will ask Greta to organize some female company some better prostitute for Max so he can completely feel like a hero with some female affection at the party, she is not to let Max know that she is doing it for the money he should think the woman is attracted to him because she thinks him heroic and manly. He will party with the group praising his companions, making toasts on their exceptional skills, the might of Julian, the cunning of mortus, the skill of Heinrich with his bow, kissing and touching Greta a lot and leaving for his room at some point with her. Most of the time he will stay very close to Max if there is a chance he offers to do a private card game with Greta, Max and the courtesan something along the lines of strip poker upstairs in one of the rooms to ease it for Max to have his romantic night.

After this party night Klaus will be busy in Bogenhafen before he considers leaving.

He will suggest to Heinrich and Julian that they go to the captain of the guard and tell him about the thieves guild, he will trust their word and there might be a reward in it.

He will suggest to Mortus that should she still want to make this deal on wine he could arrange a meeting with one of Ruggbroders merchants via Greta with the starting capital of 1000 gold she should be able to strike some grand deal.

He will present himself in the temple of Sigmar talking to Father Albrecht and asking him if he could have some symbol or sign that shows him as an ally of the church, a sigil ring, a minor relic, an amulet of Sigmar whatever as he had the luck to be the vessel of holy sigmar and prevented doom over the city of Bogenhafen. (gaining influence on the cult of Sigmar which should it make easier in other cities gaining the help of clerics)

He will present himself before the captain of the watch together with max and ask for a letter of recommandation should he ever want to visit the Baron the letter shouldnīt note what exactly happened as Klaus will keep his word on keeping his mouth shut on some demon worshippers in the midst of Bogenhafen in positions of power but just something that shows the gratitutde of the captain of the watch and prevents people like Sir Martin taking revenge on him should he travel on the lands of the baron. (also gaining him a bit of political influence in the area of Bogenhafen).

He will tell Max that he is of an impoverished noble blood line and wants to get back to fame and fortune and needs his help to achieve this.

Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Fandir Nightshade on July 11, 2012, 09:03:19 AM
I will look the price list up and make a complete billing list.
(have to search it somewhere in this thread I think right before we spied into the mansion).

Oh dear lord how many spelling mistakes I made....Mortus isnīt in the whine business...I hope.



-cortesan earns 11 gp a month so I guess giving her 5 gp should be sufficient to make her play along
-Clothes 200 gp for silk nobles dress, 60 gp for each well made wool and linnen travelling clothes(2)
-300 gp for duel pistols
-20 gp for 50 shots, powder and all the equipment to properly clean and load the gun
- golden ring without gem 30 gp
- silver ring with cheap gem 20 gp
- silver ring with cheap gem 20 gp
-silver chain with sigil of sigmar 40 gp
- 12 gp good sturdy boots
- 20 gp 4 flasks of good perfume
- 14 gp Mace/hammer(i doubled the price to make it a fancy hand weapon)

total:
681 gold pieces


copied the items list into my character sheet if someone else might want to go on shopping spree.

Post by: Finlay on July 11, 2012, 09:56:34 AM
5 gp for a night equates to 150 gp a month, a courtesan only earns 11 a month, so 5 gp for one night is probably enough to buy quite a clean one!

courtesans seem quite cheap/not earn very much. I always imagined courtesans as sort of medieval geisha style people, not hitch your skirts up in a back alley for a few pennies people!
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 11, 2012, 10:00:06 AM
700 is fine. Go ahead and add the items.

Don't pay too much attention to that price list. It's probably as daft as the rulebook prices. I might check how much that stuff costs in the rulebook, actually.

I think the list is messed up in some places, the cost of the service of a courtesan is higher, but the monthly gain is rather low, on the other hand I think 5gp is a lot of money. isnīt it like 5000 copper and the service of a cheap prostitute is only 6 copper.

Have you read “from hell” rufus? I think really crappy prostitutes who were basically tramps and just got boned in allies might well have been cheaper than beer.

I think I might want to buy armour. I cant decide on the careers:

The idea of a commander of cannon batteries with 13 bs makes me laugh.

What does specialist weapon do, increase your bs of 10 if using them? So then my bs could be 43 with a handgun… still not great.

Is it 100 exp for each new skill to learn? If so that would mean it would take me ages to advance past being a tunnel fighter again.

What do bombs misfiring do? If it’s area of effect surely I don’t need to be as accurate?

I don’t really feel like tunnel fighter fits with Julian, but I suppose it could quite easily. I imagine all dwarves to be fairly robust fighters. strike might blow, +1s and +1 attack make him quite badass.

But I think using bombs makes sense for the mining, and I quite want a handgun.

Alchemists.. making explosions and stuff. Might be fun? Argh!




I’m quite up for dealing with the thieves guild. Is Heinrich?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 11, 2012, 10:22:11 AM
Hmmm, maybe.

Specialist weapon just means you can actually use the weapon in question! Otherwise you get a massive penalty if you try. So it wouldn't make you a better shot.

Marksmanship gives an extra bonus for specialist weapons, if you learn that.

Cannons don't use BS to fire, and the gunner just directs people anyway! It's based off your Ld score.

Yes, it's 100 EXP per skill.

Not sure about the bomb rules (will check). They are S6 though!

I wouldnīt mind having no screen time for Klaus during the thieves guild bust as he is busy running around the city anyway.

So if Julian, Heinrich, Mortus and Max want to go ahead and make a mini adventure out of it feel free to go ahead.....only thing if MAx dies Klaus will be unhappy.


I think Julian at the end of his career as a rough Merc captain would be awesome, and well you have to make an int check so I think it is no cheating but very hard to learn non career skills.

It's not cheating, it's in the rules!

Dwarf handguns don't exist in WFRP, but converting them from the warhammer ones they would give +10 BS. You won't find one in Bogenhafen though... big cities only.

Tunnel fighter would make sense after all the sewer crawling...

Are duel pistols in any way different from normal pistols other than being more fancy?

I suppose. If you are happy with that.

Not sure about duelling pistols. I'll check the bonus article from one of the books. But I will probably make it up anyway.

Gunpowder weapons actually suck tremendously as written, yet the book talks about them as though they will break all the adventures! I don't understand it.

Pistols are meant to be S3. Lame.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Fandir Nightshade on July 11, 2012, 11:16:23 AM
Well first blackpowder weapons were kind of shite.....longer loading times, less accuracy, less penetration, risk of misfire.

Advantages were ....easy to learn (half an hour of instruction)compared to several years for archery, no strength needed,cheap to produce (the basic handguns was a pipe in which you dropped a lead ball and some powder...bang), during rain the sinews of the crossbow and the bow were unreliable as with the handgun you just needed to keep the powder dry well and the psych factor of the bang, fog etc.

What kind of makes little sense is the mix in the warhammer world of high price (quality manufactured guns maybe even with a rifled barrel) with low effect (low damage and low accuracy).

Well I have to take it back....If you assume that the Warhammer Empire tech level is at flintlock age

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duelling_pistol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duelling_pistol)

pistols should be much better in terms of accuracy and damage.

Quote
The bullets loaded in them could weigh half an ounce (214 grains (13.9 g)) in .52 caliber, or more in larger calibers. Additionally, a bullet fired from a duelling pistol could have a muzzle velocity of up to approximately 800 feet per second (240 m/s), which, with a .52 caliber bullet, would give it a lethality which compares favourably with more modern automatic pistol cartridges such as .45 ACP. Duelling pistols could therefore inflict very severe gunshot wounds.

Like the kick of a mule!

I would have no objection to Rufus making pistols st4 or five even.   Also shouldn't duelling pistols be less accurate than normal pistols?   I read somewhere that they were made less accurate so that there was less of a chance of nobles killing each other in duels :)   Though it is not in the wiki article.

I think Mortus is happy to leave the thieves to the city guard.

Post by: Fandir Nightshade on July 11, 2012, 12:19:53 PM
Well the wiki article presents them more powerful and more accurate than the military counterparts  but with longer reloading times (due to the ball fitting exactly into the barrel and not like military ones dangling lose in there for super fast reloading times).

I suggest you guys make a little essay on what you want to do and how like I did.

Maybe there aren't! The main rulebook only has pistols and blunderbusses! And I'm not really using any of the rules from the supplements anyway.

Let's say there are only pistols. But they are S4, as I posted in the rules thread anyway.

Klaus can buy extra fancy pistols with a lot of decoration on them, but they work no better than plain ones.

Finlay I would suggest you become a tunnel fighter as we are drastically lacking close combat potential with only Heinrich being able to stand up in a proper fight. It is unlikely that we ever have to coordinate a battery of guns during a fight and yes....you are not very skilled in the ranged department.

But on top of that...guys you are filthy rich over 1000 gp what are the plans of you people....do you consider sticking around Klaus as he seems lucky and ambitious to gain even more, do you want to retire to become a happy farmer? What would be the next step?

500 to complete engineer career (6 advances, one free)
100 to change career
100 to spend on something!

700 total.


(Mortus only had 650. Max had less)

[ah, there is the confusion! One free advance. Hurrah! I get my plus strength afterall.]

Julian would like to run an engineering/mining company. Oddly for a dwarf, he likes the company of humans and he likes travelling. He also wants to save the world. Feck off demons!

Did you add a fate point? I think cannon added his, but I'm not sure about the rest of you.

Also don't forget the 1000 gold each!


Max is going to spend his EXP on learning three of the skills he didn't quite finish at university... he'll ask Julian to help him with his dwarfish!

added! Julian is going to buy loads of armour. He will be walking around clinking everywhere.

sleeved mail coat, breastplate, mail coif.

Gives me +2 ap everywhere, apart from arms and legs as I didn't want the initative malus.
correct?

Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 11, 2012, 02:47:37 PM
 :ph34r:

That's a lot of armour! If you use a shield too, you get 3 points head and body, 2 arms and legs.

I think we'll say toughness is capped at 6, or Julian will be invulnerable.

Either that or all the baddies will mysteriously gain some strength points. Or fireball you a lot more (ignores armour).

I'm going to buy some sensible clothes too, after getting shit and blood all over these ones all the time. I need some changes of clothes.

Maybe it doesnt matter as I will be armoured up.

sleeved mail coat 130
breastplate 70 (+20 for fanciness)
mail coif 25

changes of clothes?
supply of tobacco!

Is Julian going to wear full armour all the time? I suppose that is actually OK for a dwarf...

Mortus is going to look for expensive clothes (say in the 200-300 gold range) to help her in her mission as a merchant.   

Also how much would buying a horse drawn carraige cost?   And hiring a coachman?   Also to help with her image.

She has to learn fireball which means she has to study the book that she has and maybe find a teacher and do it while no body is looking so that could take a while (he magical ability is still secret I think though as soon as she casts a fireball everybody will notice.)   I think she will get her own room in the inn though, maybe in a more upper class inn and will spend some time in that.

Mortus is also going to spend some time wandering around at night and a lot of time praying and drinking brandy.   She has become much more withdrawn since the start of the mission, though she is still to be considered friendly and bubbly and will talk easily to anybody that seeks her out.   She will seek out the others in the early to late afternoon and suggest that they eat dinner together, maybe in her new inn.   It is worth noting that she is now drinking a stronger brandy or port with her means rather than wine and she will have gotten a hip flask to put in her leather bag.   If I think of anything else I will let you know.

As I figure it Mortus has 200 gold + 1000 gold + 65 gold from the other office.   She will want to spend no more than about 250 total before leaving.   Also she what are banking chances like.   I think Mortus will want to carry about 100 gold and bank the rest and have letters of credit.   I think that is how merchants would work.

I somehow doubt that Mortus is going to announce her magic by firing a fireball at Julian, though if she did it would leave nobody in doubt.   That is a nasty spell alright.

Also would Mortus be able to fire one in each hand or is it a two handed spell?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Finlay on July 12, 2012, 01:07:53 AM
probably only allowed one spell per round.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on July 12, 2012, 01:09:25 AM
There could be that, also it would be massively over powered if you could hit somebody with two fireballs in one turn.   I assume that you need to roll your bs to hit with it.   I hope not though as Mortus' bs is BS
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Finlay on July 12, 2012, 01:10:46 AM
no, it auto hits, like I said above!

and it can set people on fire.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 12, 2012, 01:12:31 AM
Fireball autohits.... and can hit several people if they are close together. And you can fire one per wizard level. Stats as Finlay said.

Will explain more another time. I've been distracted by playing Magic for ages.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on July 12, 2012, 01:17:04 AM
Maybe I should get back into this magic, auto hitting is cool, auto hitting loads of people is cooler.   Mortus can cast a fire ball and just hold it in her hand if she wants to frighten rather than kill?
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 12, 2012, 01:19:18 AM
Also how much would buying a horse drawn carraige cost?   And hiring a coachman?   Also to help with her image.

Coach = 1000 crowns to buy!
2 cart horses = 100 or so
not sure on coachman wages... I think the figures in the book are very low relative to food costs.

Could get a small cart with horse for about 100 crowns and drive herself...


I don't recommend anyone buys any horses or vehicles right now though! It will become clear why later.

No banks as such... but maybe the merchant's guild can act a bit like a bank? The rules don't cover it but it might be reasonable.

I don't think lugging 1000 gold around is a good idea, even I can fire off massive fireballs at 2-3 magic points each.   Maybe the merchants guild in Bogenhafen will give Mortus some banking ability
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 12, 2012, 01:26:56 AM
I'd say you can bank at the guild if you want. Carrying that much gold does seem tricky, but also I'm not too bothered about those sorts of details.

I still need to work out how many magic points Mortus gets for being a L1 wizard. Not sure what fireball costs to cast either.

As stated ...DON`T get him killed Klaus needs him! Because he is such a pleasant company. Oh and Klaus will spent some time with Greta beside the one night thing, she is rather great and therefore who knows we might come by Bogenhafen once in a while.

Heinrich will go with Julian to lay the smacketh upon some thieves. He will suggest a plan of attack as follows:

Heinrich will go down in the sewers to the entrance there and sneak in like before. Meanwhile Julian and Max will enter the inn up top like normal. When Heinrich starts a ruckus downstairs, Julian and Max will cover him up top, and then Heinrich will work his way up to meet them.

Hopefully Heinrich will be able to take out a few bad guys before he is noticed, which is why he will go down below alone. In the crowded confines of down below, he will forsake his bow in favor of his axe and dagger, unless he has a clear shot and is undetected.

Heinrich will bank his money, after buying some more arrows, unless he spots something interesting that he might like to buy, though Rufus would have to come up with that, because I don't know of anything.

He will also look into local archery tournaments until the rest of the guys are ready to go.

He will also teach Max Marksmanship and some of his other skills if he wants to learn. And Strike Mighty Blow to Julian.

Depends if you want to wear more armour? Which would make it harder to sneak around. Otherwise, you'll want a longbow once you have the EXP to learn the skill to use it... but not just yet.

So I can't think of anything right now.

It's one of his career skills now (as a tunnel fighter), so he can learn it once he gets 100 EXP.

I'm glad you intend to actually be a targeteer (competing in archery contests) now that you are a targeteer! You are still a bounty hunter as well, of course. I think going after the thieves qualifies there.

I'm not too sure about this (not overly clear in the book). But I don't think randomly killing people is ever a good idea! You should have gone to the watch first. I expect you'll get away with it this time, but I don't recommend it in future.

Another hundred for murdering 3 people! Julian likes bogenhafen. Professional murdering is much more profitable than engineering.
Also, Julian promised greta he’d pay for all the drinks at the party if ruggbroder paid- 20 crowns? More?

Klaus, if we travel in the opposite direction, the adventure ends (ie the same as if we choose not to search for the mutilated goblin). So, let’s go to nuln!

Cost of living = 7 shillings  for food (basic standard, spend more for nice stuff!

Private room at inn = 1 crown per night (more for nicer inn!)

Drinks:

-pint of beer = 9 pence
-bottle of good wine = 25 shillings
-bottle of spirits = 10 shillings


Just do an estimate on how much you may have spent in the last week, and take it off your total.


I need arrows.

Arrows cost 3 crowns for 10.

You may want to buy a longbow, for when you have the skill (you can be practicing in the meantime, allowing you to get the skill once you have some more EXP). Longbow = 15 crowns.

Arrows do seem expensive, but maybe that's fair enough? I don't know. Crossbow bolts are twice as much, for no reason I can imagine.

You've been here 10 or 11 days. So that sounds OK, money-wise.


Right, it's now time to leave Bogenhafen. You are all going by coach! I'm going to push things along a bit because I don't want to roleplay you buying coach tickets and other stuff no one cares about. We'll cut to some action!

"I don't remember an Etelka Herzen from the college though... but I have heard the name. I know! That letter from Teugen's safe! Does someone still have it?"


Someone [whoever] does indeed still have the letter.

Quote from: blatant plot hook letter
My dear Johannes,

Enclosed with this letter is the scroll you require for your endeavor. I hope it will prove suitable, since I found it necessary to employ extraordinary measures to obtain it! I am sure that you do not need to be reminded, but I know you will not take offense if I say this: be certain of your preparations, especially the apparatus and the dedicatory gift. Any mistake or oversight will lead to disaster.

My thoughts are with you, and my prayers also. I wonder if the inner circle know what awaits them when the task is complete! Our old mentor at Magnus College would be delighted with both of us, I am sure. Please write to me with news of your success! I enclose my address, in case you have mislaid it. I shall be leaving home on an expedition of my own in three weeks time. I dare not say more now, but a wonderful prize lies ahead of me!

Yours in love and friendship,

Etelka Herzen.

Residing at Black Peaks Tower, near the town of Grissenwald in the Electorate of Nuln.

I think Mortus kept it

I have removed 260 gold and added a set of very expensive clothes to Mortus' profile.

Yes, it is!

I decide to use it after all. It would be a shame to waste it! And I have to fill some time before you get to the river bit. The structure in the book just doesn't work for me.

I dropped the part where one of the party is meant to look exactly like the dead guy though. And you don't have to do anything about it, since it doesn't matter. But you can if you want.

I could easily change anything I want, so don't assume that what I said about the adventure is true! It's something to do on the way to Nuln, at least.

There are always more people to kill, if you fancy a killing spree! No EXP for killing as such though - only on special occasions.

sounds good. I really liked what you did with ruggbroder, I think my favourite bit so far.

Also, poor old max! always getting wounded.

It's not a fight if Max doesn't get a beating! Someone should tell him to stay back more.

I'm glad you liked the Ruggbroder thing!

Post by: Finlay on July 18, 2012, 01:49:04 PM
Thing is, if he stays back then Julian is at the front on his own getting battered by numerous creatures. I know he can take it the best, but not sure he can tank 4 people at once all the time! But I think Julian will enourage max to stay back and shoot- mortus to get a missile weapon (what a convenient crossbow we found), and heinrich to join the fray when needed.

Post by: rufus sparkfire on July 18, 2012, 01:57:33 PM
Mortus could be blasting people to death with fireballs!  Auto-hit, d10 wounds!   ::heretic::

But I think she's trying to decide how to bring up the subject... 'by the way, did I mention I can summon magical fire to burn people to death, just like that crocodemon the other day?'

Max probably won't stay back even if you tell him to. He gets overexcited and charges in. He needs to buy better armour.

I've updated the character sheet thread with the current date, and information on the Imperial calender. The adventure began on Mitterfuhl day, and it's now the 11th of Pflugzeit.

Not sure it matters really, but it may do at some point!


Also, consecutive game thread update attack!

Immune to Klaus = demon worshipper!

Easy as that. I wonder what would be the best approach, telling her one of us is a Steinhager associate talking with her about the business she is up to?.....what was the name of that women on the letter? I know the name of the bodyguard but not of the lady...perhaps Max should introduce himself and I think she should reply what her name is. Otherwise I could try to charm the maid and get the intel from her.
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: Finlay on July 18, 2012, 03:51:00 PM
Teugen’s lady is called Etelka. I presume steiny wasn’t in on this?
 We should tell her steinhager is dead. Will save her the days travel! I presume she is just a trader…

Perhaps mortus, being a woman. And having fancy clothes.

dodge blow

What do these do, rufus?

So, Klaus is now a charlatan!

Heinrich wants longbow skill.

No problem! He's done the training already. It's his.


Quote from: Finlay
What do these do, rufus?

dodge blow [may attempt to dodge one damaging hit per combat round, if they see it coming (not missile fire). Initiative  test to avoid all damage from the attack]
orientation [always know which way is north, very good at finding their way]
scale sheer surface [amazing at climbing]
strike to injure [when causing a critical hit, may modify the hit location by up to 10%, so may be able to cause more serious harm]
strike to stun [+20 to the chance of stunning an opponent, and no -20 WS penalty for trying to stun someone]


Quote from: Finlay
0 for murdering some mutants, 50 for helping a ghost!

Well, more like 100 for all the stuff everyone did since the last EXP time. But more for the ghost than for killing things!

apart from dodge, too bad iniative, and i think orientation might be a bit redundant.

Yes, I'll decide on skill at some point...

went for straightforwardm strike mighty blow.

when i add an attack and strike to injure, I will be using 2 or 3 attacks a round, hitting at strength 4, and my criticals having a chance to be nastier!

very nice.

Or we just watch him in Nuln.

Post by: commandant on July 23, 2012, 06:38:35 PM
Is there any other stuff we could file through? Well if we want to screw him I have a flawless plan how to show he is an evil guy...we could fake that we are a demon worshiping circle and subtly invite him in then do some esoteric crap and at some point offer that he sacrifices a virgin and becomes immortal we fake offer mortus and if he wields the dagger to kill her we kill him as a demon worshiper.

Or we just watch him in Nuln.

Somehow I don't see Mortus going for that plan.   She is fairly paranoid.

I am already Int +10 so that isn't much good I think or how did I get the Int + 10.   I think maybe it is time for Mortus to burn the midnight oil with that book again :)

You can't go wrong by axing people in the face!

I think the adventure books should say, 'alternately, the party can just axe character X in the face as soon as they meet him and save a lot of trouble later.'


I kind of think we should skip ahead to the next event, but I had to have you all stop at yet another inn because people might want to question/murder Heidlemann.

Heidlemann? Uh... not sure. The trouble is, the social status rules are from a supplement and they never used them in the adventures!

I guess he counts as a physician's student, so is class B. So he is the same class as Max (and Mortus if she was a real wizard instead of a secret one). But above everyone else.

I'm not completely sure how social standing is supposed to change as you change career, either. It doesn't entirely make sense.

Also foolish me but I thought only some stuff is taken by the persons into the inn and most of the luggage stays on the coach otherwise we have to unload and load every stop......but well time to go to bed. How much should I deduct for my and von Fuldas food and wine?

At some point I want some eye rolling bodyguards too.

Heidlemann just has the one bag, and he has it taken to his room every night. Nothing gets left on the coach.

I don't think any of the party have any luggage of consequence.


Klaus can hire bodyguards if he wants!

Also I wonder if I intervene should Heidlemann kill her.

Seeing into the room would be fantastic though but only if I by chance walk by if I donīt find anything interesting I go to bed...it is one of Klaus`s habits to walk around and check his surrounding once in a while a bit paranoia never harms.

I just wanted to talk to him, no blackmail or any of that crap.   I was ready to fireball him if things got nasty but I was kinda hoping I wouldn't have to.   

Max bursting in kinda ruined my plans but I am happy with it as it is IC for him.   Not sure what to do now, if the road wardens cause a fuss it might be difficult for Mortus not to start blasting everybody.   Then there would be problems because she is really paranoid and might start blasting the members of the party as well on the "If I kill everybody they might not realize it was me idea"

@ klaus: You should talk to Mortus on the subject of the estate, she might not mind.

Post by: commandant on July 25, 2012, 10:43:35 PM
He spooked Mortus quite badly.   I donno if she spooked him, maybe.   Also I think his reaction to her means that the idea that people are going to react to her having magic by killing her (that may have been starting to slip) has just been reinforced in her mind.

If there is a quiet moment between Klaus and Julian he will tell him of his plan about faking his identy to see if he can get some money and maybe the house of that guy before it just goes to Karl Franz (who surely is rich enough). He wonīt inform Mortus, Max nor Heinrich as he either deems them too law abiding or too unstable.

Depending on Julians response he will either go with the Dwarf or alone under some excuse that they have some boring business to conduct and suggest to meet up later and surely they all have some better things to do.

Max does what he wants! He saw his friends in danger and wanted to help.

Fortunately, the squid had already taken 18 or so wounds from the others!


Fireball won't work underwater of course! So it wouldn't have been too useful.

Commandant, are you ever going to raise the subject of being a wizard with your comrades? There will come a time when you will want to fireball something!
Title: Re: Shadows over Bogenhafen RPG (out of character thread)
Post by: commandant on July 27, 2012, 09:25:21 AM
I'm not sure.   

Mortus is still terrified of their reaction and Heidlmann can't have helped.   I think the time will come where she will need to heal or fireball something and somebody might notice (Max if it is healing and everybody if it is fireballing).   I'm not sure how far Mortus will go to keep her secret but I doubt that she will let any member of the party die just to prevent herself using a fireball.

Also, it's just as well Julian passed that initiative test to grab the rail. I didn't get as far as looking up the rules for swimming in full armour, but I can't imagine it's very easy!

Do boats have to stop at night? I guess so, or you'd crash into things in the dark. So maybe 2 and a half days.


Also, please name the boat! Or I'll have Max suggest calling it the Squid or something.


Someone needs to learn some boat handling skills when they get EXP next!

It's bad luck to rename a boat! Surely it already has a name.

Is it?

OK, I'll check what the current name is.

Also, constant fidgetting and defensiveness makes you look guilty.

They know we buried the crew, we would have to have found them dead.

not necesarily, the mutants could have eaten them, or dragged them into the river to float ofd.

I think the mutants killed them all and there are no bodies is more dodgy then the mutants killed them and we can show you the mangled bodies

It's fine if no one finds out.

There are still guys in the boat and they are better sailors than us.
