Re: Nurgle cults - what defines them?

You may want to look into Typhoid Mary - a cook for wealthy New York families round the turn of the nineteenth century, who carried the bacteria that caused typhoid fever and spread it among the families that employed her, but she herself was immune to the disease. When one family died, she would fi...

Re: One week to flesh out a new adventure ...

If peasants were followers of the vintners' children, why would they free their leaders' prisoners, i.e. PCs? If peasants weren't adherents of the vintners' children, why would they free the murderers' associates, i.e. PCs? Earlier in the adventure, the PCs helped a peasant who had fled from the ca...

The Wind of Dreams is said by some to bring about eternal youth.
I haven’t read the book, so my campaign has dream wine, not the wine of dreams.

Re: One week to flesh out a new adventure ...

Is the wine good? The wine is good. A bit of background: The grapes for the wine come from a plant which grows out of human dreams. The wine mixes the dreams, hopes, fears, memories, of several people, so that when you drink from it, you get a short burst of lots of dreams and memories of a lot of ...

One week to flesh out a new adventure ...

In my campaign, the group is traveling in an alternative dimension, The Lands of Dream. At the end of the last session they arrived at a castle / winery that produces dream wine. By the end of the next session I want to have accomplished several things: * It has become clear that the castle is, or a...

Re: Wanna help me design my next WFPR campaign? (edition agnostic)

I should also note that my campaign is based on ideas by our own eminent Grand Mutant, Herr @Whymme ;) The story isn't quite the same as his, but many of the central ideas and themes are. Thanks, dude! <3 Perhaps we should get together and exchange ideas and impressions some time, when the campaign...

Nitpick: The world's oldest RPG would be Chainmail, a predecessor of D&D.

Re: Looking for really dark adventure

Tooting my own horn for a bit, you might look for the free WFRP adventure 'The Legend of Wolfgang von Horn'. It's a Groundhog Day scenario where the PCs are defending an inn from the chaos horde who want to destroy it. Time and time again. It's quite a violent scenario, you could turn up the darknes...

Re: Looking for really dark adventure

Errm, do you mean 'dark' as in 'dealing with themes in an adult matter' as opposed to the brightly coloured action-adventure D&D style of gaming, or do you mean 'dark' as in 'anything related to dark magic, but it can easily be four-coloured action-adventure'? Because most people would think that yo...

Tobcon 3 - report

Tobcon 3 was, just like the two previous events, again a lot of fun. Part of it is meeting up again with those people who have been to previous TimCon-WimCon-TobCon series of conventions, and who have sort of grown into a group of friends who meet once a year. The other part, of course, are the game...

Re: Switching to Apprentice Wizard career

WFRP 2e p. 141 flavor text seems to indicate one in a million can be a wizard and one in ten billion a Battle Wizard. I estimate the population of the Empire to be around 5 million citizens, so these numbers seem totally off. Heh. I remember the playtesting for second edition. In the playtest docum...

Re: Hägercrybs adventures?

Seems like your chance to ‘populate’ the crybs. Someone (a criminal? A pair of forbidden lovers? A young noble running from debtors? An academic who has found clues to the location of a treasure in the hills and is now trying to find it, not knowing of (or believing in) the curse upon that treasure?...

Re: Chaos Cultist Game Summary

To start, I had my players write me some answers to a few questions so I could properly corrupt them and goad them towards their ends. The questions were as follows: Where are you from? How religious is your character? What do you hate? What do you love? How many/what family members do you have? Ho...

Whymme : Man, you’ve got some really cool ideas, and I like your set-up & pay-off character moments and tricks. Very cool stuff :D Thanks. Appreciated.

Re: Wanna help me design my next WFPR campaign? (edition agnostic)

Ooooh, that is really quite cool, Whymme. I have been toying with the idea of doing something in Marienburg, and I like the thought of doing something with a non-chaotic evil cult; a Khaine plot should be very interesting indeed. And your Dreamlands thing is very clever, and something that would le...

Re: Wanna help me design my next WFPR campaign? (edition agnostic)

I'm now running a campaign that's two stories into one. The first campaign is set in Marienburg, where the PCs started as a gang of smugglers. They get drawn into a conflict in the local thieves' guild, which has grown into a full-blown gang war after the death of Henschmann (the guild leader). Next...
