After the Zweihänder news yesterday I finally got around reinstalling the latest update. And Against all odds everything seems to be working ok again! It seems that I needed to let go to get the groove back on.
This also means that FINALLY I’ll be able to upload and host Emil Heide’s excellent document that lists creatures by slaughter margin for WFRP2. You can download it HERE.
ZWEIHÄNDER fans! We have long stated that we refuse to go to Kickstarter until we had thoroughly play-tested final version of the rules. After 4 years, 8 months and 12 days, we are proud to announce that the final draft for ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG is complete!
ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG will be the first of its kind to market: an inspired version of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, adaptable for any “grim & perilous” campaign set in the familiar Old World, the politically-inspired intrigues of George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice and Fire, the racial tensions of Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher, the criminal underworld of Scott Lynch’s Lies of Locke Lamora, the war-torn adventures set in Glen Cook’s The Black Company and other Renaissance-inspired adventures. Thoroughly play-tested by our internal team across nearly 240 game sessions and three major revisions, we are gearing up to bring it to the public by way of Kickstarter. We intend to use Kickstarter to help raise additional funds for artwork, editing and layout, along with providing you a way to get your hands on a Day One PDF release of the rules! Additionally, we’ll use Kickstarter to help drive pre-orders for print-on-demand softcover and hardcover options with our partners at Lulu.com. We’re aiming for a tentative Kickstarter launch date of July 25th. We are counting on your support to help bring this book to publication. Keep your eyes peeled, and if you haven’t already, please go over to our Facebook page and LIKE it! You can also head over to our forum at Strike to Stun to tell us what you’d like to see in our Kickstarter.
In celebration, we’re releasing a massive 45 page unedited preview of Chapter 10: Grimoire to you. This includes a full narrative and mechanical overview of how Magick works in ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG. You can also peek at a full list of Generalist Petty Magicks, alongside Prayers of the God-Emperor, the Arcana of Pyromancy and their related Elite Professions. Finally, this preview also includes two new Rituals and mechanics for using mysterious Wytchstone to aid in casting spells.

As some of you might have noticed the Daily Empire has gone under indefinite hiatus. At the end of 2015 our gaming guild (Guild Redemund) decided to change our domain provider. During the migration something happened to all WordPress sites that broke visual editing, uploads and links.
During this spring I tried to fix it and contacted our main admin so that he could do something about it. Unfortunately nothing has helped. At the moment I have to admit defeat and declare this blog closed or at least in an indefinite hiatus.
All is not lost though. The Daily Empire will stay online as long as I have any say in this. And who knows? Maybe we get it working some day. As of now I can only apologize for this inconvenience! My most sincere apology goes to Emil Heide who has been patiently waiting for me to fix this site so I could upload his newest work.

Noelyuk from FFG’s forum informed the following:
“The show begins with The Enemy Within Revisited. The classic WFRP 1st edition campaign gets a revisit from our team using 3rd edition rules.
What started out as a personal wish to record our sessions has become a fully fledged podcast and I’m really excited about it and hope you are too.
You can find it in the itunes store here:
This hobby of ours is a very fleeting transient thing so it’s great to be able to record our weekly antics for prosperity and awesome now to
be able to share our adventures with other Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay fans and RPG fans in general.
And let’s face it there’s precious little else out there at the moment to satiate your WFRP hunger.
So go and subscribe to stay tuned to The Enemy Within Revisited!
You can find out more about the team at our website here:
Also: I’m still having some issues with the functionality of this site and cannot upload new files. I’ll try to get it fixed but my time is quite limited at the moment.
Happy Solstice everybody!
We had an awesome level of interest in this years Solstice Challenge. I’d like to thank all who participated and wrote an adventure and those who voted. It seems like this challenge was something we all needed! Without further ramblings I’d like you all to give big “hurray!” for:
Since there seems to be no way to close the poll it will remain open for anyone interested to give their votes. This does not take away the glory from Emil Heide.
Hopefully you will all have a fun time playing the onesheets!
Have a Scary Solstice and an Eldritch New Year!
