Re: Imperial Calendar

Well, I am German, even from the equivalent of the Reikland. And what is the "real" equivalent of Reikland? Actually I've never thought one might be able to show it on the map of Germany. I really like the sometimes silly German names in WFRP. It's great fun. I concur. My knowledge of German is too...

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

Another reason would be in line with the second answer; by leading the peasants in revolution , the children position themselves as the natural leaders of those peasants. Somehow (possibly with the help of the peasants ) the PCs escape and flee through the tunnel. If peasants were followers of the ...

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

Thanks guy. This makes everything much easier :-) So, how about those Fimirs? My PCs will likely run into those guys in Act 2, and I wonder, what are some fun and interesting things to do with fimirs? Apart from orchestrating some kick-butt combat encounters? I've barely ever used them, and not sin...

Re: The Twin Tailed.

It occurred to me that i've never, to my recollection, seen mention of the similarity between Tzeentch's twin tailed symbol and Sigmar's twin tailed comet. [...] [...] It is certainly the case that both symbols first appeared in print at the same time (in The Enemy Within around November 1986). [.....

Re: LE GOFF, La civilisation de l'Occident médiéval.

This presentation of the Roman Empire, at the 1st century of our era, by the famous French medievalist historian Jacques Le Goff, appears to me to be the perfect historical example of what would be, in the Warhammer World, a society that follows precepts of the Law gods: [...] I find this source of...

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...
