Enemy Within for WFRP2?

Monday, May 15th, 2006

Headquartered in the heart of the Empire, Patrick Fungerlings has done some fine work converting NPCs from the 1st Edition Enemy Within campaign to 2nd Edition statlines and backgrounds, and he’s granted me permission to host the files. So if you have Enemy Within and want your v2 players to enjoy the best campaign ever written, save yourself hours of effort and download the v2-compatible TEW NPCs here.

Also, the Downloads section was getting cluttered, so I’ve given the maps a place of their own.

UPDATE: The TEW NPC Conversions have been reformatted and all the names and locations now match their English-version equivalents. If there’s any demand for the Reikspiel versions, let me know and I’ll put those up too.


Maps Galore

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

I just received permission to host the WFRP v2 maps created by Andreas Blicher based upon the scholarly work of Alfred Nuñez, Jr (Alfred was kind enough to grant his permission as well). They are absolutely gorgeous — you really have to print them out on a large surface to fully appreciate the quality.

Dave Graffam, mastermind behind one of my favorite WFRPv2 resources sites, has also granted permission to host his full-color renditions of a select number of Andreas Blicher’s maps.

Not too long ago, WFRP fans were clamoring for maps of this quality, myself included. These maps have neatly solved a shortage that existed long before v2 hit the scene. All three of these guys deserve major kudos from the community.

The maps can be found in the Downloads Maps section.


Blunt Criticals

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2006

The first draft of the Blunt critical hit effect tables are finally finished and can be found here, along with the main critical hit chart and the bladed criticals. I took a slightly different approach to these tables by adding some new results and making the effects a little harder to avoid, especially at the higher levels. As always, I’m open to suggestions and would love to hear what people think. One thing in particular that bothers me is that the “Blunt” category includes both staffs and warhammers, but I have a hard time seeing a staff, for instance, crush someone’s pelvis. It bothers me, but I’m not sure what, if anything, to do about it.

Next up (after a short rest): Arrows & Bolts.
