Loving the cover artwork, the Companion is very reminiscent of Ian Miller.
Yes, it's a reworking of an Ian Miller drawing from Shadows Over Bögenhafen.

Re: Enemy With Shadows Details

1. The Oldenhaller Contract has to my knowledge never been part of The Enemy Within campaign. The original GW printing ending the adventure with a suggestion to follow it up with The Enemy Within, but that was just an invitation to buy GW's products, not an implication that they were part of the sam...

Re: The Words of the Law

I have had no official involvement with any WFRP products; I am just a fan, like most people here. Awesome Lies is a random collection of thoughts mainly about WFRP1, but also a little about other WFRP editions and WFB. 'The WFRP Story' is a series of posts discussing the real-world origins of WFRP,...

Have you tried this one?
Thanks, but unfortunately that's a WFRP2 conversion. I'm looking for the original version.

The Web of Eldaw

Help! I was planning to write a blog post about this adventure from the Good Games Guide in 1985, but I've discovered that I have somehow lost my copy, and it seems no amount of searching will uncover it. I had presumed there would be PDFs of it lying around the internet, but even they seem to have ...

Can Ernst Heidlemann be the messenger who delivered the scroll from Etelka Herzen to Johannes Teugen?

Re: Remixing Death on the Reik: The schemes of the Red Crown and the Wittgenstein meteorite (very long)

I'm not really sure you need any input on this, since your ideas seem to be pretty good on their own, but I've scribbled down some quick thoughts of my own. A lot depends on what you decide regarding cult affiliations (in your other thread). I think you combined my ideas in the Call of Cthulhu versi...

By the way, fleur du mal (which is a derivative of Charles Baudelaire's work) would sound good, too.
Yes, it's probably better. It certainly has a better literary heritage!

Re: The Enemy Within: a Companion

Is fleur macabre (TEWAC, p. 203) the name of a real plant? I don't think so. It was just a desperate invention! 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 complet...

Is it just me who find it amusing there are more editions of the fan companion to a campaign than there is for the core rule system? :)

Hey, awesome work as always.

Re: Organised crime in Altdorf

There's a little in The Empire at War, pp81-82 (WFRP1). Shades of Empire, pp3ff, (WFRP2) has some information on the Altdorf docker gangs (Fish, Hooks and Wharf Rats) You could also repurpose material from elsewhere, eg Schatzenheimers, Valantinas, Huydermans from the Oldenhaller Contract, Edam Goud...

I'm getting a 'Something went wrong' page from your link to the handouts for The Empire at War. Maybe it's just my computer though...
I just checked and it works for me. If you can't get to it directly, you can navigate from the other OneDrive links: the folder is called TEW Handouts.
