The Dirty Half-Dozen are recruited and set forth on a mission to clear their names not realising that they are essentially disposable meat in a political game and something of a last resort.

Cheers,

Charcoal burners used to have to watch the clamp all the time to quench any flame that might start and burn up all the charcoal and perhaps burn down the forest so they had a special stool with one leg. If they fell asleep they would end up on their arse and wake up. They might have gone ages without sleep.

I'm so interesting I think I might shoot myself.

Maybe we should not roleplay at all one day and just record three hours of us just talking like this and then they'd get to the end and ...

at this point I almost said outloud "think it was a Warlords of the Acordlands session and not mind at all" :P.

Which version of Thieve's Cant? The Gary Gygax one he published for Troll God Games was pretty extensive (but would need adapting due to some renaissance goegraphical and christian terms).

Lindsay had a Vampire Counts army. Blood Dragons I believe, concentrating on fast cavalry and necromancy with a heavy hitting vampire and heavy cavalry unit in there for good measure. She hates to admit it but she has a great mind for tactics and stuff.

I had a Slaaneshi army and an Ogre Kingdoms army (which I have with me mostly unpainted).

Willhelm Schmidt?

Come on.

Why do the 2nd ed adventures have so many more piss take names in them?

1st ed had Bruno Franke (Frank Bruno) but to the best of my knowledge 2nd ed's now had a witch hunter called Jacobb Bauer (Jack Bauer) and now a nobleman using Will Smith as an alias? I think there might be a few others I missed out on.

For a few moment I thought "Bill Smith's a fairly common name" but then the W hit me and I groaned.

Didn't they do that for people mixing nitroglycerine too?

Lindsay had a Vampire Counts army...


You know, thats the first lot that sprang into my head when it was mentioned. As for the tactics, I must admit I've noticed a tactical angle on some of the "plans" that have been thought of.

Can't wait to get chance to listen to this though :)

I have to say that I enjoyed running this session and I am pretty cetain that there will be many more cringe-worthy names to come :D

I am going to have to go and read ahead a little and see what they have done. Perhaps all the NPCs are cringe-worhty. That would be a fantastic feat :D

Now I'm two-thirds into the session and it's great fun. Thank you very much. :)

The Man from the Empire is really taking a chance on that, um... volatile bunch. :D


(Vampire Counts was a pretty cool army. I always wanted a straight up Empire army).

A wonderful episode! Very entertaining.

As a GM, I probably would have killed one or two. They were certainly asking for it.

But then again, players don't tend to take kindly to being the underdog / getting insulted by people in authority / getting told what to do.

Thanks folks,

Glad you are liking it as I am really enjoying running in. We have had to skip a session this week as Lindsay's little sister is visiting and James has taken the kids away for the weekend for Spring Break but we shall be back at it this coming Friday I should imagine :)

I am loving Warhmmer. I have to say I think it is my favourite of the fantasy settings. I love the grit and the disease. Makes being a hero all the more meaningful.

I'd like to add that Hal's doing a pretty good job of getting the Warhammer feel right. The next session should be interesting because (According to the Tome of Salvation) Shallya is a Bretonnian import so her temple might not be very popular with the current anti Bretonnian underlying theme that seems to be building up. Verena's an Estalian import but her high temple's in Tillea and the Tilleans are attempting to suppress any proof that the goddess was ever Estalian so there's a big Italian/Spanish inter faction strife thing going on. I think Morr's Estalian as well. Kind of makes sense really but basicaly most of the gods in the empire are foreign imports (Ulric and Sigmar aren't).

*claps* I love the intro music. I am thoroughly enjoying this one, as well as Rolemaster. And yes I would listen to just two hours of bsing around because it keeps me laughing at an otherwise boring third shift job.

PS Can't get enough of Chris yelling into the mic also, that's what keeps me awake at my job.

James, we missed you so much. :D
