  1. Hello! I'm looking to build up a group for face-to-face TTB. Based in Worcester (UK). We could do with a couple more players so if you're interested please let me know. First-time players welcome.
  2. I'm working on a TTB homebrew.... Anybody ever mapped the standard Malifaux/TTB symbols to keyboard characters/fonts? I'm talking principally about the four suit symbols, the pistol symbol and the claw symbol. I know that the images are available from Wyrd's 'Resources' page but they're image files and I want to be able to insert them into text via a keyboard shortcut. Maybe via 'private character editor'? Thank you. [Edit: Solution found thanks to Danny Dawson on TTB Facebook page who pointed me to https://www.dafontfree.net/freefonts-malifaux-rodent-edition-f137625.htm ]
  3. Shadowopal - thanks for the list above. Very very useful!
  4. I've checked all my stuff (17 OSs, 7 PDs and all the expansions) and couldn't find anything. I suggest either (i) go through all the one-shots in the Wyrd Chronicles in case there's anything there (ii) make your own (check out Kimberley's article - see below) or (iii) sign up as a playtester for the From Nightmares expansion.
  5. I think I've seen this question addressed before in the distant past but, if so, I couldn't find it. What's your take on letting Fated make skill duels on skills for which they have a rank of 0? The rule mechanics don't seem to differentiate between, for example, rank0+aspect3 and rank3+aspect0. The table on the page for each skill gives examples of what the different ranks in that skill allow the fated to typically perform. Do you use that to limit what the fated can attempt? Can somebody with a rank of 1 in Doctor attempt complex surgery, and just hope that their Intellect aspect will make up for their low rank? What about fated with a rank of 0 - should they even be allowed to attempt the duel? It feels like they ought to maybe get a penalty on either their duel (a -ve flip?) or the price of failure should be higher. Fir example, sure I could try and remove that bullet lodged in your thigh, and with a bit of luck I might make a good job of it, but if I don't really know what I'm doing then failure might mean that I hit an artery and you start to bleed out. Ta.
  6. I've been rediscovering TTB during lockdown by re-reading the core rules and the expansion books. They're incredible source books for anybody interested in Malifaux lore and the awesome roleplay system that is TTB. As I think of any questions I have about the rules I'll pop them up here. Firstly, I've just invested in the TTB spell deck cards. They're really great (especially the rules summary cards). So I was wondering.... Wouldn't it be great if the new magia and immuto from the Abive The Law book could have cards made available (eg via drivethrurpg)? Looking forward to hopefully getting some post-quarantine sessions in - I haven't played since The Obsidian Gate. Ta
