Lure of Power Is Now on Sale 17
You know you want this tantalizing supplement for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay | Published 10 November 2011

Lure of Power is now on sale at your local retailer and online on our webstore! This delightful supplement for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay presents players and GMs an abundance of sinfully delectable materials to establish your campaign among the wealthy districts, the secret societies, and the demons in the closets of the Old World’s nobility. Buy Lure of Power today, and add a little Slaanesh to your game.

In its two sourcebooks, Lure of Power introduces background information on Slaanesh, the Dark Prince, and his minions; the hidden treacheries of the Old World’s secret societies; new enemies and careers; and optional rules that allow GMs and players to engage in social encounters every bit as dangerous as physical battles.

The social encounter

Lure of Power features a host of exciting new rules. In addition to ten new careers and rules for acquiring a retainer, Lure of Power introduces guidelines and optional rules for social encounters. These materials offer the GM valuable information to develop rich, layered, and dynamic social encounters with real stakes, and they offer players bold new challenges, providing some characters with unique new opportunities to shine.

While it remains entirely feasible to ad lib social encounters in your campaign, some key moments cry out for special attention. Whether you’re building up to a critical scene set in the social milieu or adding great detail to a scene meant to establish a central NPC or secret society, Lure of Power draws focus to many of the elements of a successful social encounter. When you really want to make the encounter matter, Lure of Power provides insight into the participants, objectives, stakes, setting, structure, progress, arguments, and tactics that provide a punch to the most successful social encounters.

And for those players who have decided they’re masters of verbal thrusts and jabs, Lure of Power introduces optional rules for the Duel of Wits. In these deadly social exchanges, slick-tongued characters may shame their dull-witted opponents. Shame operates like wounds, and enough shame can incapacitate a character as effectively as physical injuries. The Duel of Wits provides players an exciting new method for resolving conflicts, but they must be wary because not every NPC enters the Duel of Wits unarmed.

Mastering the social realm

While it’s not necessary to build a social character to enjoy the risks and rewards of verbal sparring with foppish nobles, Lure of Power offers a bevy of careers for those characters meant to shine in the social spotlight. The Noble Lord, Minstrel, Ambassador, Master Thief, and others flock to the Old World’s bustling and wealthy districts. Whether your campaign centers around social intrigues, explores them through extended forays, or simply provides the occasional flash of wit, these new careers offer characters exciting ways to ply their inherent talents.

Quite possibly the perfect book

Denizens of the Old World driven to perfection often find themselves enticed by the blessings of Slaanesh. The Dark Prince offers perfection, beauty, knowledge, grace, and elegance. Experience all the pleasures that life offers the mind, the body, the tongue, the ear, the eye…

Buy Lure of Power today at your local retailer or online from our webstore and add a little perfection to your campaign!

Will buy it asap. Thanks for releasing another 3rd edition box, looking forward to Hero's Call! I'm screening FFG's page for updates and previews often. You got a great tool here and players are hooked. Would be cool if you used it more often.

Don't be fooled by all those flaming your edition although never really having played the game. People tend to loath change. I'm playing RPGs since the early 80s and I must say you guys pumped fresh blood into a stagnant breed. Don't know about the sales numbers but hang in there. Quality will prevail. I haven't enjoyed investing so much money in a system since the early 90s.

Keep up the good work!

@ Steamdriven

 

No harm no foul man :o)

I probably wouldn't have had ago except that I was excited to hear some more news about the game and it grated that the first comment was from 'a troll'.

I guess you being the troll were using the vomit action card from close range causing temprorary insanity :o)

As understandable a point as everyone's backlash.  The radical innovation of this RPG makes it a very contentious RPG, but an amazing one for sure.  Thankfully there are more than enough 2E books to keep anybody occupied with 2E for a long while.  What everyone is so readily responding to is the notion that there won't be the same  for 3E, so that's the open vein that all this ire is pumping out of.  That and the fact that 3E is really a superb and enjoyable system in it's own right so people feel as defensive as you do of 2E.  I do agree you should be allowed your voice, but would also agree to mind the Trollishness.  I avoided this game for the better part of year in disbelief of all the praise, but now that I have my hands on it I have to restrain myself from sounding so enthusiastic that I might be accused of being a company man.  

That all being said, my local supplier will have this in a week's time and I'm feverish for it.

Can't wait.

Though I must confess to being somewhat more excited by Heroes Call - REALLY intrigued to see what they do with that...

I wonder if Daemonettes will have visible nipples to.  GW started to cover them up when they began to aim their products at the under 10s....

Do want. Social interaction rules need love as much as combat and magic.

While I'd like to see more adventures and a couple regional supplements, I think FFG is doing a great job with WHFRPG 3e. The game is full of character and plays great at the table.

Great that it's out! I am excited about the game in general and all the supplements so far. Can't wail for Hero's Call.

But please: Give us (slightly) more supplements and adventure, and feed us with more previews!! This long silence was unbearable, you know.

And what about more download demo-adventures to help promotoe and spread this beautiful game?

 Semper Fidelis. Can't wait to read it ! Bring us more stuff (and more fluff), The Old World is a great place to explore and you proved that you got ideas and know how to use it.
