Re: The world's oldest RPG in the old World

This blog chronicles a campaign that's basically the early parts of The Enemy Within run with modified D&D rules (I think 5E, but can't be sure): The Dark Beneath (They have some house rules posted here .) This version notably beefs up the combat encounters - lots more and tougher monsters - which I...

Re: The Enemy Within Remixed, Season 2: Death on the Reik (campaign report)

I've spent the last few weeks reading your blog after meaning to get round to it for a while, and finally got caught up yesterday. Really enjoying the session reports, and I like your version of the Warhammer world a lot. Sounds like you're all having a lot of fun with the campaign! Thank you! I'm ...

Re: Enemy Within Rewards for nonhumans.

Maybe they could be in a position to request political concessions in favour of their people rather than a personal reward? That might be interesting (and quite possibly spark new conflicts).

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

Whatever your approach on exact dates, it's only fair that the adventure should communicate clearly to the reader/GM what is and isn't important. In Shadows, for instance, IIRC the only important date is the start of the Schaffenfest, which the PCs will learn about from a printed flyer. If the GM wa...

Re: Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

Another reflection I've had since posting my first thoughts: This new version seems clearly aimed at harmonizing the old TEW, originally written for a partially quite different setting, with the later developments of the Warhammer lore. (In hindsight this shouldn't be surprising at all - it fits per...

Enemy in Shadows: Thoughts and reactions

So Enemy in Shadows is finally here. I'm curious what other people think about it. To start things off, I'll repeat a few comments I made in a Facebook group: Some thoughts after a first quick read-through: In general, my first impressions are good and I will definitely be buying the Companion and t...

The logistics (and logic) of Castle Wittgenstein (

Some thoughts I’ve had while studying Death on the Reik in preparation for running my remix. Sorry for the wall of text. I do appreciate the fact that the final act of DotR, around Castle Wittgenstein, is meant to be surreal and run on a sort of nightmare logic rather than being realistic, but I fin...

Re: Mainstream Media Inspirations

Not an exhaustive list by any means, just a few inspirations off the top of my head for my current campaign: Books The Monk by Matthew G. Lewis (admittedly from distant memory, haven't reread it in yonks) The Devil's Elixirs by E. T. A. Hoffmann (ditto - the definitive treatment of the doppelgänger ...

Re: The Enemy Within Remixed, Season 2: Death on the Reik (campaign report)

For the second half of the summer interlude, I recycled an early WFRP classic: Night of Blood by Jim Bambra, originally published in 1987 and recently reissued for 4th edition (I borrowed some of the art from the new version).

Re: The Enemy Within Remixed, Season 2: Death on the Reik (campaign report)

During the summer break I got together with Aenlinn's player - who had missed a bunch of sessions in the spring due to having a baby - and a guest player and ran a short adventure about what happened to Aenlinn and her cousin, Käte the coachwoman, during her time away from the main party. The recap ...

Re: Origins of the Gods.

Regarding the Lovecraftian influence on Warhammer's Chaos, I'd say it's mostly indirect - by way of the Call of Cthulhu RPG, mostly.
