I think that's a new scenario unless ibam missing something.
As Karanthir said, it's a conversion of a fan-made WFRP3 scenario:

Re: Alternate Castle Wittgenstein maps

Not really related, but a very long time ago, I have made this document (without key, so players could progressively discover it) which superpose the different layers of Castle Wittgenstein, and underline few layer inconsistencies, such as the scale, the wind rose (but that might perhaps be an erro...

Re: What and where is Zaiyon?

I, too, think it's bit of a leap from a dwarf-Jew analogy to identifying goblinoids with real-world groups. (That it's unclear whether the relevant real-world group is Muslims, Crusaders or Romans highlights the problem.) However, I think the bigger problem is that it has not in my opinion been esta...

Re: What and where is Zaiyon?

@Karanthir Great find, and thanks for pointing it out. I did a search on Biblical quotes and read plenty of passages from the real Book of Revelation, but didn't realise it was from The Omen. The similiarity is, as you say, clearly intentional, then. Exactly what the intention was, though, is not cl...

Re: What and where is Zaiyon?

Yes, the Zaigon spelling probably comes from me. I misread the handout. (In fact, it was only after careful examination yesterday that I realised it is actually Zaiyon.) I think any account of the origins of dwarfs in Warhammer has to start with Tolkien. Writers like Rick Priestley have acknowledged...

None. I just get an image of a red M in a cloud, plus two small icons linking to MEGA's Facebook and Twitter accounts. But no file.

Article on the purple hand on C7's homepage: https://www.cubicle7games.com/wfrp-the-purple-hand-clarification/ It's a bit frustrating that the issues with the organisation of the Purple Hand have still not been resolved.

Re: Best object quests

Which I suspect is why Gideon has posted this question: though common set ups for adventures, the execution is mainly fairly dull. Although I feel should be able to think of lots of examples, I am having a hard time thinking of much. Yes, it feels like RPGs should be awash with good quest scenarios...

Re: Travel times for Death on the Reik

As the 4th edition Death on the Reik stands, there is, I believe, no way to calculate travelling times. I discuss the issue briefly in my reviews of Death on the Reik and the Death on the Reik Companion: https://awesomeliesblog.wordpress.com/2020/09/10/take-me-to-the-river/ https://awesomeliesblog.w...

Best object quests

I am looking for published scenarios in the classic mould of a search for an object or MacGuffin (like the Holy Grail). They do not need to be WFRP scenarios, or even fantasy ones. I am happy to convert from other games or genres. I would just like some good material to plunder. Suggestions welcomed.

Re: Thought Experiment: EW with bad guy PCs

If the PCs were, say, members of rival cults hostile to the Purple Hand, I think most of the campaign would not require major surgery, at least up to Power Behind the Throne. You would need to change Shadows Over Bögenhafen to provide the PCs with incentives to investigate Johannes Teugen. You would...

Re: Guild membership

I did a lot of work on guilds in WFRP for my blog, as part of my series of downtime posts. Unfortunately there didn't seem to be much interest in my downtime material, so I never finished writing the guild content up. As far as I could tell from my research. mediaeval guilds didn't really work as yo...
