Re: Ghosts of nonhumans

In Something Rotten in Kislev I seem to recall there is a dwarf ghost in the abandoned temple in The Beast Child adventure. I also seem to recollect that the Felix and Gotrek short story The Dark Benesth the World finishes with the ghosts of the dead of Karak Eight Peaks avenging themselves on the g...

Re: Monuments of the Reikland

Hello, I'm not particularly comfortable promoting my own work, but Wolf suggested that I did in the 4e forum, so that gets me off the hook. My conscience is now clear . Always willing to salve a conscience in a good cause. In the past I mostly wrote Warpstone articles and stuff for the Bergsburg pr...

Re: Death on the Reik Update

I'm excited that 'Monuments of the Reikland' came out today - it's the first official thing I've had published for WFRP. I was going for something based heavily in the background but with plenty of opportunities to give GMs something to actually use. I hope people enjoy it. I was absolutely delight...

Re: Mainstream Media Inspirations

I don’t think anyone has mentioned these so far: Film Jabberwocky - ex-Pythons give us a medieval monster hunt with all the darkness and silliness of Warhammer. Pan’s Labyrinth - you’d be hard pressed to be dazzled and inspired in some way by this. Novels The Matthew Shardlake series by CJ Sansom - ...

Re: Enemy In Shadows Companion Available

From hazy recollection, but didn’t the Boxtree novels timeline end at the year 2500 (suggesting that was the present)? That makes it consistent with the timelines in the WFRP rulebook (and probably whatever edition of WFB was then current - 4?) but not TEW’s 2512 date. Essentially, this makes all th...

Re: Missing: Pamphlet about mutants are people too!

I think it is in a DVD extra (before such things existed) for the Middenheim sourcebook, Otto’s Printworks. It was first published in White Dwarf and subsequently in one of the Apocrypha books, I think.

Re: The world's oldest RPG in the old World

This blog chronicles a campaign that's basically the early parts of The Enemy Within run with modified D&D rules (I think 5E, but can't be sure): The Dark Beneath (They have some house rules posted here .) This version notably beefs up the combat encounters - lots more and tougher monsters - which ...

Re: Warhammer novels, and short stories

When it was published, the more Discworldy parts seemed entirely appropriate to the general feel of Warhammer. This was at a time when White Dwarf published a cross over scenario for 40k and Paranoia though. The ultra dull serious Warhammer was a much later thing.

Re: Warhammer novels, and short stories

While its not essential to read the Jack Yeovil stories in any order, the following, I think, contains the correct chronology: 1. Drachenfels (Prologue) 2. Red Thirst 3. The Ignorant Armies 4. No Gold in the Grey Mountains 5. Drachenfels (Main Part) 6. Beasts in Velvet 7. Stage Blood 8. Cold Stark ...

Re: Warhammer novels, and short stories

Obviously, as everyone else has said the answer to these questions is always Drachenfels . It is the only Warhammer book I would happily recommend to someone without any interest in the Warhammer world. It was groundbreaking in terms of what fantasy novels, let alone game world tie-ins, could be at ...

Re: Lizardmen in WFRP2

There was a good article in Warpstone about Lizardmen. It had them as lost servants of the Slann now acting as sort of cargo cultists in the Old World.

Return of the Gnome

I see that gnomes are officially back in WFRP 4 and as a playable PC race, according to Graeme Davis’s summary of the contents of Rough Nights and Hard Days . Given their inclusion appears to have been surprisingly controversial at times and the fact they haven’t been referred to as existing in the ...

Re: Welcome!

Hello.

I hope others join us here on these forums and this can be the new Strike-to-Stun (which I still think of as the new Critical Hit...)
