It makes them feel fulfilled.

You can try if you want but I think that Mortus would not welcome such approaches.

That's what the Lasso and manacles are for.   :icon_twisted:

So, sexual antics aside, I think we might nearly be ready to start. Does anyone have any more questions about their characters?

I'd better go read through the adventure again also.


You'll be able to buy more equipment and stuff in Bogenhafen, by the way. If you want to.

Just how does magic and armour interact?   Can I buy some and a sword?

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.

My hand weapon will be a club, you know one of those things you knock people out and rob them afterwards. In German it is Totschläger.

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.

Also what are the attributes good for?

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.

Backstories are important, so that's good!


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 can´t 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.

Excellent, Fandir! Very appropriate for WFRP.


I've started the game thread:

http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=42718.0


But I'm not quite ready to start yet, so don't post! The map of the town is there though. I'm hoping people will be able to read it OK.

Gambling tent for me....how long will the fair be in town.

I met the others on the travels towards bogenhafen and hopefully entertained them with some stories...even though he likes to listen to theirs too.
I guess Commandantes mage did the most of the talking.

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

I will fill in my background later

Nice character backgrounds, Cannon and Fandir!


how long will the fair be in town.

Three days, as the poster said. It's lunchtime on day one.


I'll wait for Finlay to post something before I reply.

Career – noble

Friedrich von Hersting
Age: 20 (my actual age)
curly Brown hair and blueish grey eyes, big manly moustache
6' 2" my dads height, about 13st

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.

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!

phew thanks. much appreciated. i had to come up with the character background on the fly so forgive me if it's a bit stereotypical. Also i didnt want to copy anyone elses ideas. I usually play a character very similar to fandir's although with slightly more of a moral compass.
