I need to hunt those out Monkey... I'll find them
Managed to find the original public forum post in the archives, but the direct links have gone the way of the dodo.
By the way, there's a lovely little WFRP 2nd edition one-off recording tucked away in the Patron section, featuring some of the Texan gamers, from wayyy back in September 2008 (ooh, a six year old vintage!) - did it ever make it to the public section? Or perhaps it could be moved to the current Patron section?
As Goggles was absent from our Sunday Rolemaster session we decided as a group not to run. I don't really like running games without all the players and audio games in particular are difficult as you lose continuity.
Anyway, I offered them a choice of Donjon (old indie game), My Life With Master (my favourite indie game), Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition (the adventure from the back of the book). After some debate WFRP was selected for the one off and we managed character gen for 4 players plus the short intro game from the back of the book in about 4 and a half hours.
To be honest it was a nice change of pace to play a game that approaches things a little differently to Rolemaster and DnD. The party consisted of:
Lindsay - Playing a Halfling Servant
David - Playing a Human Woodsman
Ned - Playing an Elf Vagabond
Chris - Playing a Dwarven Protagonist
The players pick up the system pretty quickly and hopeully so do I It is the first time I have run WFRP2 (though I had some extensive experience on WFRP1 in my formative years).
Anyhoo - here it is - let me know what you think
Yes, its a big 'un
I actually really enjoyed this session, even though by the time we got home I was so ill I spent the rest of the evening in the vomitrium..
Ah, WFRP Haven't played it for years (I was a chaotic wizard's apprentice, I believe, while Martin played a rheumatic middle-aged outlaw whose back gave him gyp from years of sleeping in the forest) but it's a game I very much liked. The second edition sounds like a decent clean-up of the system. Nice to hear it referred to as "Wuffrup," too Takes me back to the days when Warhammer 40K was just on the horizon and everyone called it "Warty Forty."
Lindsay's "Skinny deer... fat woodsman..." had me chuckling, but I must say this session brought some very odd images to mind. Having half the party named after herbs had me picturing them like this:
While the prevalence of the Gossip skill inevitably led to thoughts of Cissie and Ada...
