Re: Reworkings of The Oldenhaller Contract?

Over the summer break in my ongoing TEW campaign I'll be running a short side adventure for a player who was absent during much of the spring, as a "flashback" happening during her character's absence. I'm currently leaning towards basing its climax roughly on The Oldenhaller Contract. Now, I vague...

Re: Toll/Tax to enter a city

For example local farmers didn't have to pay. Never did really get, how did they prove, that they were local ? Peasants probably do not have papers… I believe the very fact that carts or wagons local farmers were driving were loaded with fresh fruits, vegetables, etc. was the best proof these peasa...

Re: Warpstone, Chaos Dwarf issue

As far as I know John has never obtained nor tried to obtain copyrights to the articles and the illustrations published in Warpstone. They still belong to their authors. Some authors didn't agree to have their works available online so WS hasn't been digitalised.

Re: The Lustrian Bubble fallout

Later rumours spread of the ship returning and the price of the stock skyrockets, the PCs sell, and they make themselves quite a pretty penny. A large stock holder sells all their shares at once, and promptly crashes the entire stock market in the next hour. An investigation takes place where the P...

Re: The Enemy Within: a Companion

Can Ernst Heidlemann be the messenger who delivered the scroll from Etelka Herzen to Johannes Teugen? The travel from Altdorf to Weissbruck along the canal takes 3 days and from Weissbruck to Bögenhafen up the River Bögen another 4 days. The Death on the Reik hexagonally-gridded map implies that the...

Re: The Enemy Within: a Companion

I've just Googled it and found it is also the title of a Gothic novel by Isabel Stewart Way: https://www.fictiondb.com/author/isabel-stewart-way~fleur-macabre~2184569~b.htm It's a complete coincidence. I'd never heard of the book before. I just made the name up. Yes, I've also come across this titl...

Is fleur macabre (TEWAC, p. 203) the name of a real plant?
I don't think so. It was just a desperate invention!
Perhaps a desperate invention but a good one. Thank you for the reply.

Re: Looking for an encounter idea

I'd like them to have an encounter - with someone who you would expect in a dreamland setting, but not in the 'real' WFRP world. Do you have suggestions for a fun encounter? How about having them join an irrealistic tea party with the Hatter, the Pflugzeit Hare and Sigmar of Reiksdorf who ruminate ...

Re: Organised crime in Altdorf

Is there any good material written - official or fan-made - about criminal gangs in Altdorf (or other quasi-Renaissance cities)? I am not a fan of Warhammer novels. As such I have read just a few. However, I must admit I have quite enjoyed "Zavant" by Gordon Rennie. The first story (i.e. the one wi...
