Ogre Rules


In the official rules for the Ogre character, according to this website: "On the battle level profile, you will see that it costs more for Ogres to train to go up a level." However this is not reflected in the Battle Level table at the bottom, they are the same prices for everyone.

Can anyone with the original Citadel Journal #21 in which this was published confirm whether the existing gold prices are correct?

Ogre Rules


The rules as described in the Deathblow state:
Gold
When an Ogre kills a monster, put the model on his adventure record sheet as usual. When the combat is over, roll a dice for each monster he has killed. On a score of 1 or 2, he doesn't bother to check the body too carefully, and leaves its gold behind. The other warriors share the rest out between them. On a dice roll of 3+, the Ogre gets the gold as usual.

This rules means that the Ogre misses out on one third of the gold. Maybe that's what they mean when they say it wil be more difficult for an Ogre to raise the money to go up a level?

Re: Ogre Rules


Possibly. It might just be more a symptom of my dice rolling that he only ever forgets giant bats and goblins, when he's battling minotaurs and trolls he always seems to remember.

My fellow players also object to his extra ways of getting free gold or skills (again, this may just be because I gained the Drink skill early on). But then, they also object to having found a suit of the Armour of Dargon that fits him (for a total of 9T) and his skill at getting extra permanent wounds on events tables (he's only BL3 and on 30W). I think they just want to find some way of limiting his progression.

On the other hand, he did spend four turns trading blows with an Orc Big Boss because neither of them managed to hit that entire time...

Re: Ogre Rules


I think you just have an extra-smart Ogre on your hands! My friends tend to get theirs killed after he bangs on the walls one too many times and levels slower than his friends :b

Re: Ogre Rules


The one I play got ressurrected twice during the last session we played. That didn't leave me with much gold. Those two wizards (Bright & Kislev Shaman) and the Chaos Warrior seem to get all the good stuff :S
