  1. I'm really looking forward to Only War and will definitely be getting it. If it were just a supplement for one of the existing games there'd be much less chance of me buying it. it's going to need a completely different vibe to it from the other 40K games and I don't think a supplement would do it justice.
  2. Thanks 'The Broasted'. I'm kinda glad I'm not the only one having trouble with these psychic rules, I thought I must just be being really dense! I'm not normally one to ask rules questions (a good house-rule normally suits me) but this seemed such an important mechanic of the game that I thought I'd better get it right (and it was frustrating me that it didn't seem to make sense!)
  3. Razorboy said: panzer-attack said: I'm really confused how you work out what modifier is applied to a Focus Power test when kicking off a pyschic power. In the rules it states that the pyscher makes a Focus Power Test modified by the level of the power, but under the Power Level section it doesn't mention anything about this. There's two examples later on in this section - one using a Power Level of Push where they make an ordinary (+10) Focus Power test and later on there's one using a Power Level of unfettered where they make a Challenging (+0) Focus Power Test, but neither of those examples tie up with the rules under the Focus Power Test section where it states that you add a bonus of 5X you Psi Rating to the Focus Power Test. At the moment I haven't got a clue how this is supposed to work. Panzer, you always add the 5XPR used (half PR for Fettered, full PR for unfettered, and PR+3 for Push) to the Focus Power Test regardless of the Power Level you're using. Therefore, the higher the PR the greater the bonus to Willpower and the greater the chance that the power manifests. In the first example (I presume the one on page 185), the character is manifesting Smite power, which can grant bonuses to the Focus Power Test depending on the range and other factors (as per Smite power description). These bonuses are on top of the 5XPR used. Thanks Razorboy. The rules themselves are fairly clear but the examples they use are complete rubbish in my opinion. Instead of clarifying the rules they just make them more ambiguous. As someone else mentioned earlier on in this thread, in the same section the examples make it unclear whether using a Power Level of Push adds a flat +3 to your psi rating (which is exactly what the rules say) but then in the example it states that it adds +3 because that's what the character's willpower bonus is.

  5. Those maps are awesome, thanks for posting them
  6. I have to say, when Fantasy Flight first announced WFRP3 last week I didn't like what I saw at all. Still, I'm willing to keep an open mind about it and these points that have been posted seem encouraging. I can't help but feel it's a bit too soon for a new edition though. Either way, some of the naysayers definitely need to take a step back and stop frothing like loonies over it!
