joe.caffeinated's Inns of the Empire

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

Have your PCs ever stood in front of a tavern, squinting at the shingle to read the faded print, while you cast about in a desperate search for an appropriately WFRPish name for that establishment?

joe.caffeinated does you one better. He constructs the entire inn for you, complete with number of beds, price of food and drink, and even gives ideas for events within — based on Henrik Gronberg’s wonderfully detailed Liber Fanatica article and the fantasy names found at hackslash.net, all wrapped in a gorgeous Web 2.0 interface.

So head on over to Inns of the Empire and kick the tires. It’s the kind of thing I wish I had back when I was actively GMing, and it’s one of the first places I’ll go when I take it up again.

Josef's Extended Crits

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

Josef recently sent me a rough draft of his work in progress, a revision and expansion of his prior Critical Hit Charts, which were already amazingly detailed. Instead of hunting through multiple pages of various forum threads, you can find it in the Downloads Section, or here as a direct link.

Keep in mind this is only a preliminary version. I’ll keep you posted on the final version, as soon as I hear from Josef.

Fan-made Character Folio

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

A while back — a long while back now — Robert Feuillerat sent me his creation: the first full-fledged fan-made WFRP character folio I’ve seen. Back then, Black Industries had its own folio for sale, and I didn’t want to step on any toes. So I sent it off to GW legal, but unfortunately never received a response.

Robert got back in touch with me just a few days ago with his revised version. Now that BI is defunct and their folio no longer actively supported, I don’t see any reason to withhold the work. You can find it in the Downloads section.

Robert has done a bang-up job, so if you’d like to share your kudos or if you have any suggestions, feel free to contact him at his email address, or leave some feedback at the FFG forums thread. I’m sure he’d love to hear from you.
