Re: Archives of the Empire: Free Territory of Frugelhorn

Isn’t that from Terror of the Lichemaster?

It got a WFRP repackaging in the Flame days, I think, too.

Re: Viydagg Retcon/Return

I’m pretty sure it ends with Brunner doing a runner when the Mardagg actually turns up too.

He isn't above paying people to steal/kidnapp gods/images that he thinks he can get a good price for either.
I’ve always thought the Dragon Warriors adventure, A Box of Old Bones, could, with a little work, be successfully converted to a good WFRP adventure.

Re: Almarr???

I haven’t heard of it (not very helpful, I appreciate.)

I suspect it might be a something created for someone’s own personal game, unless someone else has more information. What are the fan adventures it appears in? Are they by the same person?

Re: What and where is Zaiyon?

On a side note, I am not sure to get why Norse and British range of archetypes and stereotypes would be familiar and humorous enough to works best among sources of influence for Warhammer Fantasy , while Ashkenazim range of archetypes and stereotypes might be unfamiliar and unhumorous enough to be ...

Those are great pictures, Chuck. Some of the pictures on the Flickr I think are unpublished sketches, as well. There is apparently a memorial fund: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/simon-eggleston?utm_term=EE98eYA9b I’ve just donated. I recognise at least one other name and I’d encourage othe...

Re: Martin McKenna

It’s a terribly young age. Unfortunately, it appears it may have been self inflicted. Graeme Davis posted this: “Most tragically of all, it appears that Martin took his own life. Especially in these trying times, make sure you check in on your friends and loved ones. Even a brief phone call, text, o...

Martin McKenna

I saw a post from Graeme Davis suggesting Martin McKenna has sadly passed away.

His work probably did more to create the visual identity of The Enemy Within than anyone else. If correct , he’ll be missed.

Re: Best object quests

The campaign that came in the Advanced HeroQuest main game was essentially a broken object quest in four parts (or five parts if you count the 'surprise' added section at the end of the fourth part separately). You wouldn't need to buy the whole game, only the rulebook. I’m not sure there’s really ...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

Is it a problem if some of Warhammer’s presentation of religion veers towards the henothestic, rather than a fuller polytheism? There is good evidence that many of the ancient Greeks inclined to this sort of worship; we know that different Norse gods were popular with different groups (Sagas refer t...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

WFRP religion does show its roots as something Graeme Davis had to quickly come up with to fill in the gaps and incorporate few bits others had created. That said, I think it is entirely workable and overall stands up pretty well. What it lacks is any idea of its mythology. Often the stories about g...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

The Beasts in Velvet character is slightly more problematic, because it portrays someone being driven to psychosis purely by denial of their binary birth-sex. In the modern world, a writer should contextualize the character's psychology to show that her female emotional traits were dominant, and th...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Agreed, I'd probably avoid dark humour and mental illness for transgender NPCs in 2020. Although I laughed at the crossdressing goblin in TEW and found the gender-repressed murderer in Beasts in Velvet compelling, the 80's was a different time. However, I don't think a GM or writer needs to be gay ...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

One thing that would help, I think, would be actively asking some women, some non-white people and some trans folk to write for the game. That's perhaps the best way to see a bit more diversity in the actual material. I was always sad that Server Goddess didn't have time to post more on StS and tha...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

. If there were any Arabic WFRP players, I'd be curious if they consider mutants an appropriate analogue or whether perhaps Arabyans would be more appropriate. Now if you're talking specifically about ISIS cultists then I could get onboard with the mutant analogy. I’m not sure I’d look for any dire...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

How far should WFRP stray from medieval demographic simulation? Right from the outset WFRP has never felt the need to conform to reality, but RW gender roles were less strict than is sometimes thought (the ‘roaring girls’ of the early 17th century were exceptional but showed that they could, effect...

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...
