[13:47] <+AndyLaw> My name is Andy law and I’m the producer for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. If you want to know more, it’s time to ask.
[13:47] <+AndyLaw> Oh, done. 🙂
[13:47] <~Dan> Thanks, AndyLaw! The floor is open to questions!
[13:48] <+Horizon_Brave> What is your Biggest Regret in terms of 4e and conversely, your biggest fist pumping victory in terms of 4e’s development?
[13:48] <~Dan> So first, for those benighted souls unaware, can you give us a quick overview of the setting?
[13:48] <+TS> LOL
[13:48] <~Dan> (Welcome to #randomworlds, Vonbloodbath!)
[13:50] <+AndyLaw> My biggest regret is not being involved from the beginning — I adored the creation process (the writers behind this game are the best), so I wish I’d been involved right from the start. The game was in development for about a year when I first stepped in, so I was walking into an established ruleset with an established set of boundaries, and my job was to…
[13:50] <+AndyLaw> …work within that framework with the rest of the team.
[13:51] <+AndyLaw> I really wish I’d been there from the beginning, as the 6 months or so at the tail-end involved some of my favourite gaming collaborative moments of my life.
[13:51] <+AndyLaw> Biggest pumping victory? That tougher… So many things I like in there…
[13:51] <+TS> I solemnly swear I tried to get you involved sooner.
[13:51] <+AndyLaw> Hahaha
[13:51] <+AndyLaw> TS, you’re the best.
[13:52] <+TS> I should point out I’m T.S. Luikart – I’m here to support Andy’s insanity.
[13:52] <+Horizon_Brave> right, well Andy is after me in the list of “to involve first” 😛
[13:52] <+TS> Hi Everybody!
[13:52] <~Dan> Howdy, TS!
[13:52] <+Hobbler> Hello!
[13:52] <+GreatHornedRabbit> Hello fellow Lifeforms!
[13:52] <+AndyLaw> So, biggest pumping victory is almost certainly getting to sit down with the biggest WFRP fans in the world and tell tham that not only was their game going to continue to live, but that it would be moving in lots of fun new directions. In the coming months there are going to be a few surprises, and they are what excite me the most.
[13:52] <+AndyLaw> Done
[13:53] <+TS> Horizon_Brave – as should be obvious from the Reikland Map.
[13:53] <+AndyLaw> Next? Was that a quick overview of the game?
[13:53] <~Dan> Yes, please. 🙂
[13:54] <+Zekaito> How much content are you planning on producing for 4e?
[13:54] <~Dan> (Welcome to everyone just arriving! Q&A in progress! The floor is open to questions!)
[13:54] <+Paidabodyndwp> Hi all
[13:54] <+AndyLaw> WFRP is the game of grim and perilous adventure in a world of dark fantasy. To define it further would be to limit individual expression of play. For some it’s high fantasy dragon riding adventure, and for others it’s down, dirty, street-level investigation against a backdrop of extreme corruption and horror.
[13:55] <+Horizon_Brave> Question: Will the core rulebook, the physical copy, have an attached foldout map of the one we received in the PDF?
[13:55] <+Mordiggian> Is there any official Roll20 support planned?
[13:55] <+Arioch1973> Will we get books dedicated to elf and dwarf species, their careers, culture, magic etc?
[13:55] <+AndyLaw> For me, it’s all of the above. No one version is better than any other.
[13:55] <+AndyLaw> Next!
[13:55] <&Cegorach> Starting with a system question: What are the main differences to 2e and is ther finally a perception stat? 😀
[13:55] <~Dan> (Question pause, please, while AndyLaw catches up!)
[13:55] <+TS> The map is the end papers of the core book.
[13:55] <+AndyLaw> How much content? Is that next?
[13:56] <+AndyLaw> A lot.
[13:56] <+AndyLaw> Next.
[13:56] <~Dan> I think this was next: [13:55] <+Arioch1973> Will we get books dedicated to elf and dwarf species, their careers, culture, magic etc?
[13:57] <+Paidabodyndwp> will we see the old faith again in some form?
[13:57] <+AndyLaw> Attachehed map? No, it will have the map in the end papers. We are currently sourcing a separate poster map option, cos I think that would be awesome. If that happens, I will tweak the map in a few places for added detail fun.
[13:57] <~Dan> (Please hold questions until we get a (done) from AndyLaw, Paidabodyndwp. Thanks! 🙂 )
[13:57] <+AndyLaw> Nice spelling of Attached there!
[13:58] <+AndyLaw> Roll20 support. That is being looked into, but there is nothing announced or officially planned yet.
[13:58] <+Paidabodyndwp> 🙂 No worries
[13:58] <+Mordiggian> TY
[13:58] <~Dan> (Welcome, Wierzba!)
[13:58] <+Horizon_Brave> Nice… I hope the Roll20 thing takes off. Would be great to see collaboration on that front
[13:58] <+AndyLaw> Dedicated books for different species: Yes, there are plans of this type, and more…
[13:59] <+Danil0> Question. When the starter set will be released?
[13:59] <+Syntezz> First of all sorry for possible mistakes. I’m not a native english speaker. 4e rolebook providing great guide to Reikland. Will there be such guides or even separate supplements for other provinces and more important lands near Empire? Like Kislev, border princes, Nehekhara, etc.
[13:59] <~Dan> ( Danil0: Please hold questions until we get a (done) from AndyLaw. Thanks! 🙂 )
[14:00] <~Dan> (Welcome, Burn, and howdy, Saurbaum!)
[14:01] <+AndyLaw> Main differences to 2E and is there a Perception stat? Oh, man, that’s a toughie, as there are so many differences to 2E. In a nutshell, it uses a single core system for all interactions, its a bit deadlier, but in different ways, ‘whiff’ has gone, and the game has long-term play baked into the ruleset to ensure longer campaigns always have somewhere to go…
[14:01] <+AndyLaw> …and the career system doesn’t top out.
[14:01] <+TS> I’m glad you guys are enjoying the guide to the Reikland – lot of work (and research) went into that.
[14:01] <+AndyLaw> And, yes, there is an Perception stat. In this case, it’s called Initiative, and also stands in for speed of thought. It is directly related to your Perception skill.
[14:02] <~Dan> (Welcome, Zilver!)
[14:02] <+Horizon_Brave> yep, I actually really like the endeavor system and the off adventure bits to really expand your charrie
[14:02] <+Burn> Will you release soon a Reikland map in good quality resulution?
[14:02] <+AndyLaw> Guides to other grand provinces: Oh yes! 🙂
[14:02] <+Saurbaum> Sorry I’m late coming back to the party. Anyone asked about plans to have lizard folk races for players?
[14:03] <+AndyLaw> Lizardman species as players: that one I’ll not answer, as the plans are yet to be firmed up there. But, well, it would be cool, huh?
[14:03] <+AndyLaw> So, done!
[14:03] <+AndyLaw> Did I catch it all?
[14:03] <~Dan> Thanks, AndyLaw! Questions may resume, but please respect question pauses! 🙂
[14:03] <+Horizon_Brave> Question: Pretty sure I know the answer to this one, but do you or C7 in general, plan to release a sort of “year ahead” schedule of proposed releases? obviously no dates set in stone, but more of a goals list? So we know what’s sort of “whats’ to come” ?
[14:03] <+Danil0> when the starter set will be released?
[14:04] <+GreatHornedRabbit> Question: Is there a chance for a new “Children of the Horned Rat” or “A dark nights master”? Or would this also be to exotic? As a GM it would really help
[14:04] <~Dan> (Question pause, please! Thanks!)
[14:04] <~Dan> (wb, Paidabodyndwp!)
[14:04] <+AndyLaw> Planned releases: To a degree, yes, but there will always be an agile nature to our release schedule, as you will see once the Starter Set is released.
[14:05] <+TS> (WFRP Trivia: Gary Astleford, one of the lead designers of Children of the Horned Rat – worked on the 4E core)
[14:06] <+AndyLaw> Starter Set release: when it’s done. I’ve learned the lessons from the core book — no point in making a promise until I’m sure, and I’m making sure the Starter Set rocks so much rockiness before it’s shipped. Like the rulebook, it is planned to have an early release pdf.
[14:06] <+Skellan> Question: If two opponents spend a resolve to get a success, are they just cancelled?
[14:07] <~Dan> (Please hold questions during the question pause until we get a (done) from AndyLaw. Thanks! 🙂 )
[14:07] <+Arioch1973> Not a question, more IMHO; Its awesome that you guys release an early version of the pdfs, and then take feedback from the community. Big thumbs up for that.
[14:07] <+Horizon_Brave> with PDF dice included?? (not a real question!) 😛
[14:07] <+AndyLaw> Skaven and Undead books: a chance for such products? Yes. Will they come soon? No, but also yes, to a degree. There are plans to cover some of that material in the initial year of releases, but those plans, as I mentioned earlier, will always be agile.
[14:08] <+Horizon_Brave> what Arioch1973 said…love the appreciation of fan feedback…we’re a fickle, demanding bunch…
[14:08] <+Skellan> Yeah, I applaud how C7 have involved the community
[14:08] <+Saurbaum> Any plans for a nice big well written campaign book/pdf early on to get us going?
[14:08] <~Dan> The C7 folks are great, no doubt about it.
[14:08] <+AndyLaw> Oh, rule question! To Resolve spent: yes, I cancel in that instance. It’s very rare in play.
[14:08] <+TS> We’re now blushing, I assure you.
[14:08] <+Horizon_Brave> lol “well written” did you really have to add that in?
[14:09] <+Saurbaum> After playing though and reading the Enemy within books….. yes
[14:09] <~Dan> (Welcome, Yukka, and howdy, JoaoPaulo!)
[14:09] <+JoaoPaulo> hi there
[14:09] <~Dan> (Warhammer 4e Q&A in progress! 🙂 )
[14:09] <+Yukka> Hi
[14:10] <~Dan> (Howdy, Kei!)
[14:10] <+AndyLaw> Big campaign: We will initially have Rough Nights & Hard Days, which has 5 adventures that can work as a campaign. We will also have The Enemy Within Director’s Cut, which will have a completely new last two books. Beyond that, plans are already in place, and more will be announced.
[14:10] <+AndyLaw> Woot! Done.
[14:10] <+AndyLaw> Next!
[14:11] <~Dan> Questions may resume!
[14:11] <+Syntezz> Are there any plans on release of GM screen with some awsome art to cover my notes from sneaky adventurers? Just accidentally destroyed mine from 2e on the latest session.)
[14:11] <+Saurbaum> Ooo new versions of the enemy within…. Colour me interested
[14:11] <+Horizon_Brave> In regards to the Errata, is it PDF only? and If the Core book ever gets a 2nd printing, will anything be updated?
[14:11] <+AndyLaw> GM Screen? Oh yes!
[14:11] <+Horizon_Brave> ooh good question Syntezz
[14:11] <+Horizon_Brave> and good answer AndyLaw ! lol
[14:11] <+Paidabodyndwp> Ok – any plans for the old faith and Albion?
[14:11] <+Ceodryn> Rule question: Cerulean shield, damage when attacked, what does +WPB means? (SLs of casting + WPB? SL of melee + WPB?)
[14:12] <~Dan> AndyLaw: I’m a huge fan of the revamped task resolution system. Can you briefly describe that and how it’s been changed?
[14:12] <~Dan> (Question pause, please!)
[14:12] <+AndyLaw> The Errata will be PDF only. We will also update the PDF sporadically, as required. Lastly, later printings will have some updates included.
[14:12] <+Horizon_Brave> drat…means ‘ll have to rebuy the core book down the road at some point!
[14:12] <+AndyLaw> Old faith — Yes, it’s already mentioned in a few places. Albion. Plans, yes. Can I say more yet? No.
[14:13] <+TS> <Paidabodyndwp>: There are Old Faith easter eggs in the Reikland section…
[14:13] <+Paidabodyndwp> Marvellous
[14:15] <+AndyLaw> Cerulean Shield — Hah! So got that one in, eh Ceodryn? It does exactly what it says: WPB Damage, which is modified as normal. This, obviously ignores metal APs. Then, as it’s Azyr we’re talking about, it bounces out once to all potential targets within 2 yards, potentially zapping them harder as the energy builds and cracks free. That rule is on…
[14:15] <+AndyLaw> err…
[14:15] <+AndyLaw> Page 248. I think.
[14:15] <+Ceodryn> Thanks!
[14:15] <+TS> People are always asking us shield questions…
[14:16] <+Zalgo> At least it wasn’t a regular shield question this time, eh? :^)
[14:16] <+Guest19> Can we expect updated versions of popular supplements from previous editions, something akin to Realms of Sorcery/Tome of Corruption?
[14:16] <+AndyLaw> New system: In summary, we have added more options. We have Simple Tests that provide a simple yes or no answer to the question: did I succeed. This is typically a 1d100 roll needing to roll equal or under your Skill+20.
[14:16] <+Horizon_Brave> lol shield and advantage questions
[14:17] <+AndyLaw> Then there are Dramatic Tests which can provide lots of different answers to the question: Did I succeed? The more you roll under your skill, the better you succeed. The more you roll over, the worse it gets…
[14:19] <+AndyLaw> And finally we have Opposed Tests, which are at the core of the combat system, and in this case, whomever rolls the best, wins the test. So, even if two characters with rubbish skills pitch themselves against each other, and even if both fair their respective skill tests, one side will not fail as badly as the other, and they are designated the winner. This m
[14:19] <+AndyLaw> …means there is always a winner in a Contested Test, meaning something always happens, and you have no turns where people are swiping at each other and perpetually missing, which was the case for previous editions.
[14:20] <~Dan> (Huzzah!)
[14:20] <+AndyLaw> That’s the three core tests… Of course, there are other fun details, but that’s enough to start.
[14:21] <+Horizon_Brave> pssst you forgot Extended tests!
[14:21] <+Horizon_Brave> 😛
[14:21] <+AndyLaw> Tome of Corruption? Oh yes! Realms of Sorcery? And, well, yes! 😀
[14:21] <+Saurbaum> Is that where you roll one die go for a cup of tea and roll the other after?
[14:22] <+AndyLaw> I purposefully didn’t mention Extended Tests. They more fringe. 😉
[14:22] <+Horizon_Brave> No Saurbaum those are tea/biscuit tests
[14:22] <+Horizon_Brave> my favorites 😛
[14:22] <+AndyLaw> Dis I miss anything?
[14:22] <+AndyLaw> Did, even.
[14:22] <+AndyLaw> Let’s say done.
[14:22] <+Paidabodyndwp> Ok Andy, a friend wanted to know – Shields are they at -20% to defend without melee parry specialisation? 🙂
[14:22] <~Dan> Questions may resume!
[14:22] <+AndyLaw> Hahah
[14:22] <+Saurbaum> Are there any specific rules about shooting into combat?
[14:22] <+AndyLaw> Too early!
[14:22] <+Horizon_Brave> Question: because examples often are easier to read and deduce answers from than just text at times… would you be open to the idea of having perhaps a separate PDF of maybe a few pages dedicated to different scenarios like channeling, combat situations, skill and talent usage, magic casting, and many tricky situations, done through examples?
[14:23] <+Syntezz> It said that starter set has two dice included. Will it be some distinctive D10 or just two plain d10 to provide beginners with dice needed?
[14:23] <+Paidabodyndwp> Gnomes will there be gnomes?
[14:23] <~Dan> (Question pause!
[14:23] <~Dan> )
[14:23] <+AndyLaw> Shooting into combat: yes there are. We have modifiers for shooting into groups and penalties if you try to pick out individual combatants.
[14:24] <+AndyLaw> More examples: Yes, there are plans for something like this. A list is currently being compiled.
[14:24] <~Dan> (Welcome, ThatEffenDude!)
[14:24] <+AndyLaw> Starter Set 2d10: They will not be bog-standard boring ten-sided dice! 🙂
[14:25] <+jmt-chaospie> Thanks in advance for working on the extra examples document.
[14:25] <+Horizon_Brave> I imagine Andy’s face on the 10 side… “You totally Andy’d that roll!”
[14:25] <+AndyLaw> Gnomes: That one is tougher to answer, as I don’t make the calls on all content. What I can say is that we included a diminutive detective on page 64.
[14:26] <+GreatHornedRabbit> Question: Do C7 has any plans providing more detailed guides for completly new Warhammer GMs?
[14:26] <+AndyLaw> Detailed Guides for new GMs? Yes.
[14:26] <+Paidabodyndwp> He’s the reason I like gnomes 🙂
[14:26] <~Dan> Questions may resume! (I think… caught up, AndyLaw?)
[14:26] <+Skellan> Question: are there plans to allow community content such as DMs guild on rpg drive thru or whatever?
[14:27] <+AndyLaw> Glad to hear it. And, yes, I think I have.
[14:27] <+AndyLaw> Skellan: Yes. Plans.
[14:27] <+Horizon_Brave> How long of a leash is GW giving you with their content? Do they have final say in the content and rules? Are you free to add to the lore/species/ and canon of Warhammer?
[14:27] <+Banquo22> Are there any plans for the “timeline”/ metaplot concerning the End Times?
[14:27] <+AndyLaw> <shap intake of breath>
[14:27] <+ThatEffenDude> Question: Does spending a single point of Resolve remove all conditions or just one?
[14:27] <+Skellan> 😀 I imagine IP may be a issue
[14:27] <+Horizon_Brave> lol it always is with GW Skellan lol
[14:28] <+AndyLaw> GW involvement: I can’t discuss that, but I will say that they have been absolutely awesome. I am seriously loving working with them.
[14:28] <+Paidabodyndwp> How are crits with ranged weapons conceptualised now?
[14:28] <+AndyLaw> End Times content plans? Yes.
[14:29] <~Dan> (Question pause!)
[14:29] <+Zekaito> Do you have a favourite career in the new edition?
[14:29] <+Horizon_Brave> End times…oh boy…can of worms opened….
[14:29] <+Zekaito> sry
[14:29] <~Dan> (After Zekaito’s question. 🙂 )
[14:29] <+AndyLaw> Resolve expenditure: It’s clear in the rules: just 1.
[14:29] <+AndyLaw> Crits with Ranged Weapons: I’ve put that in the errata.
[14:30] <+AndyLaw> Favourite career…
[14:30] <+AndyLaw> …
[14:30] <+AndyLaw> That’s tough…
[14:30] <+AndyLaw> Erm…
[14:30] <+Horizon_Brave> lol…please say Scribe
[14:30] <+Guest73> But if you have bleed 3 does it resolve all levels of bleed?
[14:31] <+AndyLaw> That question broke me… Do I have to choose between our babies?
[14:31] <+ThatEffenDude> I have a follow up based on your answer, when we have a chance with questions again.
[14:32] <+AndyLaw> Can’t do it… I love too many of the careers… <sigh>
[14:32] <+Zekaito> If you don’t have a favourite career to roleplay, that’s fine 🙂
[14:32] <+AndyLaw> Okay, next… Conditions… Just 1.
[14:32] <+AndyLaw> Is that them all?
[14:32] <+AndyLaw> I think it is. Next!
[14:33] <+Saurbaum> What’s your favourite player race and why is it halflings?
[14:33] <~Dan> I think so. Questions may resume!
[14:33] <+AndyLaw> Hahah!
[14:33] <+Vonbloodbath> Andy – maybe think not about a favourite career, but one in which there is something you especially like about the design?
[14:33] <+ThatEffenDude> Do you, having played, found stacking conditions an issue at all?
[14:33] <+Skellan> Question: I am loving the brutal and sometimes hilarious wfrp 4 combat – when my players die in horrible ways can I blame it all on you? 😀
[14:34] <+AndyLaw> So tempted to say Ogres… But, I’ve always loved Humans, as pretty much all my PCs are Humans. In terms of the non-Human races, I have no favourites. I love them all for different reasons.
[14:34] <+Syntezz> Will we see additional racial specific careers like dwarf shieldbreaker or elf white lion?
[14:34] <+jmt-chaospie> Will you maintain a master index as new product are released or offer new random tables when new careers will come up?
[14:34] <~Dan> (Question pause!)
[14:34] <+Arioch1973> Fimirs for the win! 😛
[14:34] <+Horizon_Brave> Grail Knight as a career lol
[14:35] <+AndyLaw> @Vonbloodbath (lurker!) If I must, then I’ll go with… THEY ARE OUR BABIES! STOP MAKING ME CHOOSE BETWEEN THEM! 😉
[14:35] <+Saurbaum> The addition of the Firmir in the bestiary made me smile and remember Hero Quest
[14:35] <+AndyLaw> Or, I really like the Witch art?
[14:36] <+AndyLaw> I have no found stacking conditions an issue. I don’t recommend letting it happen to much, though, as it gets nasty. Retreat!
[14:36] <+ThatEffenDude> Thanks
[14:37] <+AndyLaw> Can you blame me for all the hilarious ways your characters die: I’m certainly party responsible, but I think you should blame us all for that one.
[14:37] <+Skellan> 😀
[14:37] <+Guest77> 😀
[14:37] <+AndyLaw> Racial specific Careers? Yes.
[14:38] <+ThatEffenDude> If there was something you could go back and do over for this edition of WFRP, what would it be?
[14:38] <+TS> Bretonnian Knight: Squire, Knight of the Realm, Questing Knight, Grail Knight
[14:38] <+Horizon_Brave> TS: yes please.
[14:38] <+Fr05ty> Can I just say how much I love the 4e book? Everything from the layout, art and rules is top notch
[14:38] <+AndyLaw> The master Index will be maintained as long as it can be for Careers. The master index was created with future releases in mind.
[14:38] <+Vonbloodbath> @AndyLaw – like, I really like the design of Soldier, as it showcases a lot of what I love about the system. You can stay in Tier 1/2 of Soldier for ever, just be that grizzled fighter. Or you can move from, say, Noble into Officer (Tier 4) but won’t have all the Talents from lower careers, because you don’t actually know how to fight. 🙂
[14:38] <+Fr05ty> Can’t wait for you to get some stuff done on my beloved elves
[14:38] <+Banquo22> Ooh, wardancers? Also any plans around Lustria and any details?
[14:39] <~Dan> (Please hold questions until we get a (done) from AndyLaw! Thanks!)
[14:39] <+Horizon_Brave> Vonbloodbath: exactly, if you want to move up you can, if want to remain where you are and really increase your speciality of that tier, you can as well
[14:40] <+AndyLaw> If I could go back to the beginning and redo stuff, would I? Of course, we are always seeking to perfect and refine. The core rulebook was created by a great team who worked very hard to hit a deadline. Deadlines, by their very nature, mean time is tight, and decisions are made that we look back on and may regret. But would I change any of it?
[14:40] <+AndyLaw> No, onwards and upwards.
[14:40] <+AndyLaw> We did what we could, and we will always do better next time.
[14:41] <+AndyLaw> Can you say how much you love our book? Yes, please do. 😀
[14:41] <+Skellan> I think you did a great job
[14:41] <+Horizon_Brave> AndyLaw: meh it’s okay! 😛 I really love the consumer guide at the end, just started digging into that
[14:41] <+Guest75> I will love it more when I have it in my hands!
[14:41] <+AndyLaw> @Vonbloodbath’s comment about Soldiers : Yes, what he said! 😉
[14:41] <+Guest75> wait
[14:41] <+Paidabodyndwp> Yes well done guys it’s great. Wonderful to see it back
[14:41] <+Guest75> that came out wrong
[14:41] <+Banquo22> Also loving the book art and style
[14:42] <+Fr05ty> I could never get into 2e just because the system was a bit too complex and strange, but what you’ve done with 4e makes me want to get into it right now
[14:42] <+Arioch1973> When I get the printed copy, it will have a permanent place of honor on my reading shelf by the bed, thats how much I love WFRP 😀
[14:42] <+Fr05ty> The classes rework is amazing
[14:42] <+AndyLaw> Lustria plans? Yes. But we have a lot to cover to get there. But, definitely, yes.
[14:42] <+TS> My favourite cross career is actually the Judge.
[14:42] <+TS> In Old World history, folks have become Judges directly from completely unrelated lives.
[14:43] <+Fr05ty> Question(s): Are we going to get supplements for Athel Loren/Laurelorn, Ulthuan or Bretonnia? And will they include specific classes for those areas/races? (We never got much elven love for 2e) Also, was the omission of magic items from core intentional? Sorry about the long Q
[14:43] <+TS> Meaning – you can end up being a Judge without any of the useful lower tier Talents / Skills of the Lawyer.
[14:43] <~Dan> (Welcome to those just arriving! WFRP Q&A in progress! Please set your names with the /nick command; e.g., /nick Dan 🙂 )
[14:43] <+TS> That’s what Law Clerks are for, right? 😉
[14:43] <+Horizon_Brave> Question: Andy, what are your thoughts on running a game without the Advantage system? Do you think this is something that can be sort of pulled out of the game? Will future books still lean heavily into the use of Advantage? I sort of like the idea that it can be used if you want but not “vital” to the game mechanics?
[14:44] <+Danil0> Question. Will we get a monster manual in a time soon?
[14:44] <+AndyLaw> Supplements for Ulthuan et al: to a degree, yes to them all. But we have to temper that with the realities of time, release schedules, and just how much we can do in a day. But all of that will at least be touched upon.
[14:45] <+AndyLaw> Was omission of magic items intentional. Yes. We will have more on that, too.
[14:45] <~Dan> (Oh, question pause, btw!)
[14:45] <+GreatHornedRabbit> Question: What about Araby, Nippon and Cathay? Will you expand the lore?
[14:45] <+Arioch1973> I would love to go to Cathay/Nippon and run campaigns in WFRP.
[14:46] <+Fr05ty> That’s an awesome question! Total War: Warhammer 3 might actually also touch there, if WFRP 4e also gave us lore for that, we’d finally have a decent lore to know about the forgotten half of the Warhammer world
[14:46] <+AndyLaw> Can Advantage be removed? It certainly can. Will we lean heavily into it in future rules? Not heavily, but we will be using it for a variety of purposes.
[14:47] <+AndyLaw> More monsters: oh, yes!
[14:47] <+Danil0> nice
[14:47] <+Guest75> I hope that WFRP4 will expand the lore, considering that WFB is no longer an obstacle
[14:47] <+Horizon_Brave> lol, tell that to GW
[14:47] <~Dan> (brb)
[14:48] <+AndyLaw> Araby, Nippon and Cathay. They are not currently on my planned list of supplements or areas I expect our game to tackle. Will we do so later? only time will tell.
[14:48] <+Syntezz> It was aleady said about plans regarding Empire provinces and Lustria. But what about Nehekhara? I’d really like to send my party off to sands and deadly trapped pyramids. It’s time to dig out some of Nagash servants.
[14:48] <+Horizon_Brave> Just roughly Andy, after the Start Pack comes out, and things settle down, about how many releases of books are we looking at per year? Just on average you think?
[14:49] <~Dan> (Please hold questions until we get a (done) from AndyLaw. Thanks! 🙂 )
[14:49] <+Horizon_Brave> whoops!
[14:49] <~Dan> (No worries. Horizon_Brave. 🙂 )
[14:49] <+AndyLaw> I know there is is at least one writer very keen to see us go down to Nehekhara… We’ll see if that happens. I would certainly like to go down that way at least once. The Lure of the Liche Lord for 2E wasn’t quite far south enough for me… 😉
[14:50] <~Dan> (wb, Paidabodyndwp)
[14:51] <+Horizon_Brave> When andy wants to go South he goes Brighton south
[14:52] <+AndyLaw> Number of releases: Watch this space. That one will be answered very soon. I wouldn’t like to give my plan, only to ignore it three weeks from now. We do have a lot of material in the works just now, though.
[14:52] <~Dan> (wb, Woo)
[14:52] <+AndyLaw> Seems I’m done. Release the hounds!
[14:52] <~Dan> Questions may resume! 🙂
[14:52] <+jmt-chaospie> The system is very modular and has many options. How will new rules and optional rules be implemented? As stacking up over corebook? Would you allow some new content to replace core stuff?
[14:52] <+Fr05ty> Have the sales been as expected/better/lower?
[14:53] <+Horizon_Brave> Oh to follow up…To make scheduling perhaps easier, are they any plans to do exclusive material only released in PDF? SO maybe smaller books and releases only wll have a PDF version, so printing isn’t an issue all the time?
[14:53] <+Vonbloodbath> A writier interested in the Lands of the Dead you say? 😉
[14:53] <+AndyLaw> The new systems will add to the core, not replace it. Until I change my mind on that. 😀
[14:53] <~Dan> What elements from 1e/2e did you *know* that you’d have to revise? (I’m thinking of the former attribute cap, for example.)
[14:53] <+Banquo22> Are there any plans for gaming “nicknacks” such as condition cards, advantage tokens?
[14:53] <~Dan> (Question pause!)
[14:54] <+Horizon_Brave> Banquo22: I hope not ….
[14:54] <+Horizon_Brave> Banquo22: in fact…stop giving him bad ideas! 😛
[14:54] <~Dan> (Welcome, jcrowland!)
[14:54] <+AndyLaw> Sales are something I let others worry about. I’m allowed to created tons of new content for the favourite game in the world with the best people in the world. That’s all that matters to me.
[14:55] <~Dan> (Welcome, hrafnagud314!)
[14:55] <+jcrowland> Will you get to provide old world maps?
[14:56] <+Fr05ty> I’m super happy that you and C7 are doing WFRP 4e, loving the attitude, the results and work you’ve put in. You guys are so awesome I feel you’ll do WFRP the justice it deserves!!
[14:56] <+AndyLaw> PDF releases? Yes, that is part of the plans. Stress on plans. Announcements will firm that up in time.
[14:56] <+Horizon_Brave> Oh yea and Andy, I *highly* encourage you to use a lot of subtle pop culture references in the “Examples” text you referenced earlier… The indiania jones stuff I love lol…
[14:58] <+AndyLaw> Elements of 1E and 2E that had to be revised: the biggest is long-term sustainability of the ruleset. And for one reason: The Enemy Within. Neither 1E or 2E can be play tEW end-to-end without breaking as PCs become too powerful and run out of careers and advances to work through. I’ve broken 1E and 2E so, so many times in my life.
[14:58] <+AndyLaw> Given we were planning to release the Enemy Within, our system had to work with it.
[14:59] <+AndyLaw> And that had enormous ramifications to almost all corners of the ruleset.
[14:59] * ~Dan nods
[14:59] <~Dan> I can see how it would.
[15:00] <+AndyLaw> Condition Cards and Tokens and similar? If there is a demand for them, and they are useful, I see no reason not to. If you don’t like such things, as they will be additional extras, you need not buy them.
[15:00] <+Skellan> wfrp 4’s character advancement is the best I have seen throughout the editions
[15:00] <+Saurbaum> My halfling wizard was a terrifying monster by the 4th book of Enemy within
[15:00] <+jcrowland> Given the huge popularity of D&D, How would you ‘sell’ wfrp to group of heathens, err…players?
[15:01] <+Horizon_Brave> lol
[15:01] <+Horizon_Brave> no you had it right, heathens! xD
[15:01] <+AndyLaw> Old World Maps? I’m a cartographer amongst many other things. Yes, maps will be a thing. The more I’m allowed to make, the happier I will be. Time, though, is a perpetual enemy here. But, yes, we will map as much of our supplements as we can.
[15:02] <+hrafnagud314> I vote for condition cards and tokens
[15:02] * +Arioch1973 casts the spell Haste on AndyLaw and makes it permanent.
[15:02] <+AndyLaw> Pop references? Yes, we sometimes can’t help ourselves. The WFRP team loves that stuff, too. 🙂
[15:03] <+TS> <jcrowland>: Tell ’em they might actually die in WFRP fight and there’s no resurrection? Well, not the kind they would want…
[15:03] <+Banquo22> Just want to say how much I like the ingrained humour in this edition! Makes me nostalgic for the warhammer of my youth…
[15:04] <+Skellan> Yes, the blend of humour and horror makes a great rp session
[15:04] <+AndyLaw> How would I sell WFRP to D&D players? That depends entirely upon the players. I’ve never met a D&D player that I couldn’t get to enjoy WFRP, as it’s very unpredictability always delights. We may laugh when a mighty hero player is killed by a paltry Goblin, but there is also nothing more empowering and hilarious than watching the GM gape with horror as…
[15:04] <+Horizon_Brave> ^
[15:05] <+AndyLaw> …you stab a Greater Daemon of Tzeentch with a tiny magical Dagger, roll a Critical, and it dies.
[15:05] <+Horizon_Brave> I stepped away, are we on a question freeze dan?
[15:05] <~Dan> I think we’re on the tail end of one, Horizon_Brave.
[15:06] <~Dan> Thanks for asking. 🙂
[15:06] <~Dan> (Welcome, GhalMaraz!)
[15:06] <+Horizon_Brave> I try to be respectful….but not respectable 😛
[15:06] * ~Dan chuckles
[15:06] <+jcrowland> lol, thanks Andy. I’ll flog my heathens with your anecdote.
[15:07] <+AndyLaw> The biggest draw for WFRP over D&D for me is that it is demonstrably different in almost every way, so it makes for a very different experience. And often a lot funnier one, too.
[15:07] <~Dan> Quick aside: I hope that if you folks are enjoying your visit with us, that you’ll feel free to hang out with us in the future! We’re always open for general, flame-free chatting. 🙂
[15:07] <~Dan> (With an RPG flair, of course. 🙂 )
[15:07] <+AndyLaw> And scarier.
[15:07] <+Skellan> thanks for hosting Dan
[15:08] <~Dan> You’re welcome!
[15:08] <+GhalMaraz> Hi all!
[15:08] <+jcrowland> Flame free? My bright wizard is triggered by your micro-aggresskon.
[15:08] <+Banquo22> Going back to End Times (sorry) but would this be ignorable? (I.e. can GMs decide it didn’t happen?)
[15:08] <~Dan> (Are you caught up, AndyLaw?)
[15:08] <~Dan> ( GhalMaraz: Here for the Q&A? 🙂 )
[15:08] <+AndyLaw> Ignorable End Times? Sure, but there is a lot of potential fun there.
[15:08] <+AndyLaw> And I think so.
[15:09] <+AndyLaw> Lot of text above…
[15:09] <+GhalMaraz> And thank you to both Dan and Mr. Lawhammer!
[15:09] <~Dan> Questions may resume!
[15:09] <+Skellan> With wfrp 4 opening up long term play and between adventure activities, will wfrp 4 organised play be a possibility?
[15:09] <+GhalMaraz> (Enjoying it a bit, Dan)
[15:09] <+Horizon_Brave> One character in all of Warhammer lore, that you want to sit down with some tea with and banter with?
[15:09] <+AndyLaw> Organised play possible? Sure is.
[15:10] <+Skellan> Supported by C7?
[15:11] <~Dan> More of a comment than a question: I’d just like to say how much I appreciate how complete the core rulebook is, especially in this age of endless “optional” supplements that are nothing of the sort. Did any games inspire you in that regard?
[15:11] <+AndyLaw> Who would I talk to in the Warhammer World? Oh, nice… Morathi or Malekith. That wouldn’t go badly, right?
[15:11] <+AndyLaw> Yes. WFRP1.
[15:11] <+Horizon_Brave> lol I’m sure you’d come away with some stories
[15:11] <+AndyLaw> yes I would,
[15:11] <+TS> Teclis – definitely Teclis.
[15:11] <+Guest75> any chance we get WFRP 4 version of Castle Drachenfels
[15:12] <+Guest75> ?
[15:12] <~Dan> AndyLaw: Cool. That’s one reason I stayed away from WFRP2: The lack of a real bestiary. No bestiary, no sale from me.
[15:12] <+AndyLaw> I almost went Teclis, but he was too young, baby.
[15:12] <+GhalMaraz> (Is there going to be a transcript of this Q&A, Dan?)
[15:12] <+Horizon_Brave> Andy, I’m a big fan of consistent art and design…So I love how the entire core book is all one artist ( I think?) and it all looks very uniform, can we expect the same artstyle and consistency for the future releases?
[15:12] <~Dan> (GhalMaraz: Yes, at my blog.)
[15:12] <+TS> You know, Dan – I wrote a whole book called The Old World Bestiary, right?
[15:12] <+Horizon_Brave> dan uhh 2e had a bestiary??
[15:13] <+AndyLaw> Bestiary: quite, and the lack of space for a bestiary was one of the reasons we designed the modular one we have in the core book. You can make anything you want with the tools in there.
[15:13] <+Horizon_Brave> dan infact, it’s one of my favorites of 2e books
[15:13] <~Dan> Horizon_Brave: In a separate book, yes.
[15:13] <+Arioch1973> I love the new system for creating and modifying creatures in WFRP4.
[15:13] <+AndyLaw> Artists: there are actually several artists in there. The art team are awesome. 🙂
[15:13] <~Dan> (GhalMaraz: (Link: https://gmshoe.wordpress.com/)https://gmshoe.wordpress.com/)
[15:14] <+Fr05ty> Only thing I’d like from End Times: Playing as a Kurnoth Hunter 😀
[15:14] <+GhalMaraz> Jon Hogdson, Scott Purdy and Sam Manley for sure, if I’m not wrong.
[15:14] <+AndyLaw> So, any other burning issues?
[15:14] <~Dan> Can you describe the magic system and how it differs from earlier editions?
[15:14] <+GhalMaraz> (Thank you, Dan)
[15:14] <~Dan> (Welcome, Justindoodler!)
[15:15] <+jcrowland> tell us about shields. just kidding, lol, please don’t!
[15:15] <+Vonbloodbath> I second the awesome art team comment. The coolest thing for me has been envisaging characters and places, then seeing them come to life in the talented hands of the artists working on the books. Living the dream, literally. 🙂
[15:16] <+GhalMaraz> Is there any chance Jon Hodgson will keep contributing to the line as a freelancer, in the future?
[15:16] <+Horizon_Brave> Keep the art team line up then! Top notch stuff….I never felt so immersed in moustaches and hats
[15:16] <+Horizon_Brave> Oh and do go on AndyLaw about demilances 😛
[15:17] <+AndyLaw> The magic system is very different to previous versions. 1E had magic points, we don’t, and magic can be cast as much as you want (but has consequences if you’re unlucky). 2E had a separate rule system for magic — we don’t; the core system used for all task resolution is also used for magic. 3E was it’s own beast…
[15:17] <+jcrowland> ^lol
[15:17] <+TS> You can tell how important someone is likely to be by the size of their moustache.
[15:17] <+Horizon_Brave> lol, I really am hoping for at least one career to have as it’s trappings requirement “Moustache”
[15:18] <+Arioch1973> TS: Sorry, but I Just have to when you talk about moustanches…(Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYaftoxf31M)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYaftoxf31M
[15:18] <+jcrowland> I *love* that students have ‘opinions’ as a trapping.
[15:18] <+AndyLaw> …nevertheless, we still took aspects of it, reflecting the different die results of 3E with our rules that let you cast your spells more effectively if you roll very well, making the spells adaptable in a way they weren’t in 1E or 2E. In short, our rules are different because we took everything that was great from the previous 3 editions, and…
[15:18] <+AndyLaw> …wrapped it into 1 neat whole.
[15:18] <+Horizon_Brave> lol yea my scholar has opinions lol
[15:19] <~Dan> (Howdy, Acenoid!)
[15:19] <~Dan> AndyLaw: Well done on sticking with a unified mechanic, btw.
[15:19] <~Dan> I mean, really well done. It shows real craftsmanship in design.
[15:19] <+Skellan> Characters are so cool in this edition, I am sort of addicted to making characters
[15:19] <+AndyLaw> Will Jon work on WFRP in the future? I’d certainly love him to, he’s the best.
[15:19] <+Peenicks> Hello, I’m a beginner at WFRP. I have the 4E core book and I love the all dark fantasy to it. Is there something you would recommend to someone getting into WHFRP? Something to read can be any of the old books.
[15:20] <+jmt-chaospie> How did you chose to cut between core rules and optional one? Two exemples coming to mind: doomed talent is usually something table related. Same languages (but magick) could have been a list with an option to have them as skill for the table looking for more fined grained rules.
[15:20] <+AndyLaw> Demilances: I hates them, my precious! Watch for those hitting an errata near you soon.
[15:20] <+Arioch1973> Peenicks: So many good old novels to read, of course the Felix & Gotrek books is a good start.
[15:21] <+Skellan> I enjoyed the witch hunter series too
[15:21] <+Guest75> Konrad trilogy FTW
[15:21] <+Arioch1973> Oh, yeah. I never got a hold of the last book in the konrad trilogy…
[15:22] <+Skellan> Will C7 be at any conventions in the near future?
[15:22] <+Guest75> I’ve only read book 1 after like, 12 years of being Warhammer fan. First thing I’ve read were 1ed Core and Konrad book 2
[15:22] <+AndyLaw> Recommended Warhammer reading? Sure, Black Library has a wealth of old books and new that I cannot recommend enough. We all have our favourites, so I’ll let anoyone call out there’s in the chat if the fancy. Often you’ll finds it was the first books you read that have the biggest impact. I’ve been reading since the beginning, so books such as…
[15:23] <~Dan> (Guest75: You can set your name with the /nick command; e.g., /nick Dan 🙂 )
[15:23] <+AndyLaw> …Drachenfels and Beasts in velvet have a special place in my Warhammer heart. Can’t help it. I read those first…
[15:23] <~Dan> (wb, Justindoodler)
[15:23] <+Guest27> To what degree do you believe the VTT market is being grossly underestimated?
[15:23] <+Arioch1973> ❤ Drachenfels the great Enchanter…
[15:23] <+Peenicks> Godspeed!
[15:24] <~Dan> (Howdy, piercefraser! Welcome, jcrowland!)
[15:24] <+piercefraser> heya Dan. How is?
[15:25] <~Dan> (Great, thanks! WFRP Q&A in progress. I’ll open up a PM with you.)
[15:25] <+jcrowland> Andy should try to attend LexiCon, in Lexington Kentucky. Sure, promote wfrp, but really go for the bourbon.
[15:25] <+AndyLaw> How did we choose optional rules? Truly they are all optional. In my mind, there is no difference. Pick and choose as you will. That said, the core rules were selected, and they were for three primary reasons: 1) supporting the setting 2) supporting game balance 3) supporting fun.
[15:26] <+GhalMaraz> Peenicks: the old, original short stories anthologies are really good, even if a bit not- canon anymore (sometime): Ignorant Armies, Wolf Riders, Red Thirst.
[15:26] <+AndyLaw> C7 at conventions? We sure will be, as and wehn we can. I’ll be attending Tabletop live at the end of the month, for example, and Essen is coming up soon…
[15:28] <+AndyLaw> To what degree is the VTT market grossly overestimated? That entirely depends upon whom you talk to. Me, I like it, and that’s all that matters to me. I do it much less than I’d prefer.
[15:28] <+TS> Essen-Spiel, 25-28 October.
[15:28] <+AndyLaw> Bourbon… :O
[15:28] <+Guest27> I meant in terms of market size and dollars gained/lost by not participating. ?
[15:29] <+Horizon_Brave> Andy, favorite music to listen to when writing?
[15:29] <+GhalMaraz> AndyLaw and TS : is there going to be a change in C7’s communication channels?
[15:29] <~Dan> (Howdy, Silverlion!)
[15:29] <+Fr05ty> Guardians of the Forest sold me on Bretonnia and Wood Elves
[15:30] <+Skellan> Hope not, C7 communicate well for me
[15:30] <~Dan> (Welcome, Mordiggian!)
[15:30] <+AndyLaw> VTT again: Ah, yes, I see. Again, that’s something I’ll let someone else worry about. My job is to get as much awesome content out there as possible, so I’ll focus on that. Others will worry about VTT; but I’ll always keep it in mind.
[15:30] <+Fr05ty> Andy, what’s your favourite kind of Elves, and why is it the Asrai?
[15:31] <+AndyLaw> Communications: yes. We are moving our head office to Ireland; once that’s set up, the changes will roll out.
[15:31] <+GhalMaraz> I humbly disagree, Skellan ! 😀 I think there’s some space for improvement.
[15:31] <+Horizon_Brave> Fr05ty: that was a really good book..
[15:32] <+AndyLaw> Favourite Elves? Eonir, just to be contrary. 😉
[15:32] <+Guest75> is there any date when we can expect print copies?
[15:32] <~Dan> AndyLaw: Fill in the blank: If I weren’t working on WFRP, I’d love to be working on ________.
[15:32] <+Horizon_Brave> No, C7 , for what it’s worth has been top notch in terms of communication and fan feedback and response
[15:32] <+Arioch1973> I am one of those that is doing completely unofficial support for a character sheet to use on Roll20 with WFRP4th edition. I dont know when, but I hope it will be included in the available character sheets of the supported systems soon. If anyone was wondering about running WFRP4 on Roll20.
[15:32] <+GhalMaraz> To Ireland? Whoa, didn’t knew that. Time for some real changes in the company.
[15:32] <+jmt-chaospie> Is the move to Ireland brexit related?
[15:33] <+Skellan> I have never communicated with game devs as much as I have with C7
[15:33] <+AndyLaw> The print copies are printing right now. As soon as they send them to us, we will send them out. As soon as they confirm the books are shipped, we will inform you they are incoming.
[15:33] <+Guest75> ❤
[15:34] <+Horizon_Brave> oh yea…crap I forgot, what about that super deluxe edition of the core book with the leather cover? I didn’t order that one, but is that shipping the same time as the normal core book?
[15:34] <+jmt-chaospie> By related, I mean tax and currency exchange motivated.
[15:35] <+TS> No, we could definitely stand to up our communication game. I think it would horrify most of you to know just how few people C7 actually is.
[15:35] <+AndyLaw> If I weren’t working on WFRP, I’d love to be working on my personal games of WFRP. #It’sTheTruth But, if we’re talking as a job, and it’s in RPGing, it’s be an adaption of a favourite CRPG, like Mass Effect or maybe Horizon Zero Dawn.
[15:35] <+Skellan> nah, its a guiness thing
[15:35] <~Dan> (Welcome, gunther!)
[15:36] <+Guest28> Thanks to andy and the rest of c7 for keeping wfrp going. Player of 26 years. 👍
[15:36] <+TS> …Oh, and my favourite Elves are dead ones.
[15:36] <+AndyLaw> Ireland move: I’ll leave that for Dom to answer, as he was the one that made all the choices there. I am still in Scotland distance working like mad.
[15:36] <+Horizon_Brave> Just having Andy, Vonbloodbath and a few others, in the Discord chat is already more than we see with….others
[15:36] <+AndyLaw> Communication with devs: That is something I feel passionate about. Glad you like the current direction.
[15:37] <+Vonbloodbath> Yeah, it’s good to hear you guys like us talking on Discord etc, as we enjoy it too. 🙂
[15:37] <+AndyLaw> Deluxe book: It is in print at the same time, but it’s a bit more complicated to finish, so may ship a little later. We’ll know soon.
[15:37] <~Dan> AndyLaw: In the “regular” time remaining — and note that you are welcome to hang out as long as you like — is there anything we haven’t covered that you’d like to bring up?
[15:37] <+TS> Discord is fun. BUSY though. lol
[15:37] <+Horizon_Brave> no need to lie Vonbloodbath, it’s not becoming
[15:37] <+Horizon_Brave> 😛
[15:37] <+Guest27> Well,. I suppose I am not asking you personally in so much as your Work, but from a strictly business standpoint. I look at the number of subscribers to these various VTT sites and I see “official” content being produced by a myriad of game systems and I am just curious as to why GW/Cubicle7/FG or Roll20 would not be trying to do everything they coul to break
[15:38] <+GhalMaraz> More or less, I’ve got an idea of the size, TS. And I know it can be a struggle. That’s way I keep pestering (sp?) you about that on FB. Because I know C7 Is the best! 😉
[15:38] <+Horizon_Brave> TS: sorry mate…but what’s your Discord name? are you actively in there?
[15:39] <~Dan> And I’ll just give my regular reminder that gratuities are welcome at (Link: https://gmshoe.wordpress.com/the-gmshoes-tip-jar/)https://gmshoe.wordpress.com/the-gmshoes-tip-jar/ , if anyone is feeling generous. 🙂
[15:39] <+Guest27> into the market a gobble up some market share for themselves. Jut curios.. Thank you for your consideration and response. 🙂
[15:39] <+TS> I have a special colour and everything, Horizon_Brave.
[15:39] <+Justindoodler> Any plans for a book with rules for playing other imperials? Or for that matter Bretonnians or Estalians etc. Or Gnomes 😉
[15:39] <+Vonbloodbath> @Horizon_Brave ME? Lie? with MY Reputation? 😉
[15:39] <+jmt-chaospie> Communication did improve and is very constructive. Thank you for that.
[15:39] <+Horizon_Brave> lol
[15:40] <+Fr05ty> @Horizon_Brave Still waiting for the follow up to it with Leofric Carrard’s new adventures
[15:40] <+Horizon_Brave> TS: hmm so you’re a purple… can only be two others then….
[15:40] <+Skellan> Thanks for doing this Andy and thanks for hosting Dan. I have to dash now – see you all later
[15:40] <+AndyLaw> Anything I’d like to bring up: Yes: Andy (vonbloodbath),TS, and Ben are absolutely nailing the writing side of Starter Set. They deserve to be worshipped as gods, but I’m just going to say thanks instead. I’m seriously looking forward to what everyone thinks of the boxed set, because I kinda love it. And the art team are… well, I already said…
[15:40] <+Horizon_Brave> Fr05ty: lol yea…I dont’ see that happening….ever lol.. ::glares to GW’s self killed property:::
[15:40] <~Dan> And by the way, before we wrap up, I’d like to thank you all for making this one of the liveliest Q&As we’ve had in quite some time!
[15:40] <+TS> Yep, purple. TSLuikart
[15:41] <~Dan> And AndyLaw, you did a yeoman’s job of keeping up, sir!
[15:41] <+AndyLaw> …I love ’em to bits. Sam and Scott deserve to be carried through the streets as kings, and the freelancers are just amazing. Working with such talented people is a privilege and a joy. I could not be more delighted.
[15:41] <+Horizon_Brave> TS: you must be a ninja sir!
[15:41] <+TS> That’s spelled “Eshin”
[15:41] <+jmt-chaospie> Is the starter set in line with the one for Lone wolf?
[15:42] <+Vonbloodbath> Hey, you can worship me if you want, dude. Just sayin’… 😉
[15:42] <+Arioch1973> Blood for the Vonbloodbath?
[15:42] <+jmt-chaospie> In term of content organisation, writing, etc?
[15:42] <+Vonbloodbath> 🙂
[15:42] <+AndyLaw> VTT once more: Yes, I feel it is certainly worth pursuing. Do I want to see us there? Yes. Definitely yes.
[15:43] <+Arioch1973> Skulls for the throne! 😛
[15:43] <~Dan> You all are welcome to continue to hang out and chat, by the way. I’m just going to go ahead and log the chat and post it in my blog.
[15:43] <~Dan> Thank you AndyLaw and TS for joining us!
[15:43] <+AndyLaw> Rules for non-Empire folk? Yes, there are plans.
[15:43] <+Arioch1973> Thank you guys for the replies to our questions. 🙂
[15:43] <+TS> It was fun. And now, I need to do some Starter Kit polishing. (No fooling – Andy will be too. lol)
