Useful guides and help using the board
We have a busy little RSS News Troll who looks at lots of oldhammer blogs and posts their new content into the News Feeds forum. If you run a blog and the content is primarily oldhammer and would like us to include it in the News Feeds forum then if you reply to this topic with the details of your blog and its RSS feed URL your feed url and someone will take a look and add it to those the poor Troll processes process.

You can add BBCode to your posts to format them, BBCode works in much the same way as HTML and Markdown markup tags in text. The tags surround the text to format. BBCode consists of tags made from brackets [ and ]. You can read a good guide over at www.bbcode.org In addition to the common BBCode tags we have a couple of additional ones that should make writing about Oldhammer and associated game systems easier. Statlines You may wish to include the statistics for your heroes an villains and this can be done using the statline tag {M},{WS},{BS},{S},{T},{W},{I},{A},{Ld},{Int},{Cl},{WP},{Points Value} For example: 4,3,3,3,3,1,3,1,7,7,7,7,5 Will create: 4,3,3,3,3,1,3,1,7,7,7,7,5 Which is suitable for Warhammer Fantasy Battle and...
