WFRP 2nd Edition

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay

This is a dark age, a bloody age, an age of daemons and of sorcery. It is an age of battle and death, and of the world’s ending. Amidst all of the fire, flame and fury it is a time, too, of mighty heroes, of bold deeds and great courage.

At the heart of the Old World sprawls the Empire, the largest and most powerful of the human realms. Known for its engineers, sorcerers, traders and soldiers, it is a land of great mountains, mighty rivers, dark forests and vast cities. And from his throne in Altdorf reigns the Emperor Karl Franz, sacred descendant of the founder of these lands, Sigmar, and wielder of his magical warhammer.

But these are far from civilised times. Across the length and breadth of the Old World, from the knightly palaces of Bretonnia to ice-bound Kislev in the far north, come rumblings of war. In the towering Worlds Edge Mountains, the orc tribes are gathering for another assault. Bandits and renegades harry the wild southern lands of the Border Princes. There are rumours of rat-things, the skaven, emerging from the sewers and swamps across the land. From the northern wildernesses there is the ever-present threat of Chaos, of daemons and beastmen corrupted by the foul powers of the Dark Gods. Within the walls of the Empire secret agents of the Ruinous Powers move to weaken the strength of men. As the time of battle draws ever nearer, the Empire needs heroes like never before.

About the game

This site has information about my current Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay campaign - the Restless Dead - that is run at Leicester Sabres. This is a modified version of the campaign, with other side-adventures from Warpstone and even WFRP3E. So far the heroes have survived The Night of Blood, Eureka, Rough Night at the Three Feathers, One Minute to Morr and Slaves of Destiny. Next academic year they will be off to Altdorf to put paid to the machinations of their nemesis, the daemonologist they know solely as Hans.
