Lots has happened in the WFRP world over the last 1+ week. But before I get to that…
JUST THREE DAYS LEFT ON IAN MILLER’S KICKSTARTER
I posted about this on Tuesday, but now there are just three days left on this relatively short, two-week KS for a deck of tarot cards illustrated by Ian Miller. So take the opportunity to pledge here now before it ends this coming Tuesday!
A recent update showed what the backs of the cards will look like:
And now on to the WFRP news proper…
NEW FIRST-EDITION PDFS
Cubicle 7 has continued its release of 1e products with scans of Apocrypha Now (Flame Publications edition), the first part of the Doomstones Campaign, Fire in the Mountains, and, perhaps most excitingly, the original Realms of Sorcery. I’ve not picked them up yet, so can’t comment on their quality. I do know that the Middenheim: City of Chaos file was compressed in such a way that Macs don’t display it correctly. I’d appreciate hearing from any Mac owners who has any of these – what’s your experience been?
THE RETURN OF THE OLD WORLD
Equal-parts exciting and concerning is the return of the Old-World battle game, announed last week here. It’s exciting because it demonstrates a renewed commitment on GW’s part to the original setting we all love. It’s concerning because more focus on the battle end of things doesn’t necessarily make for a more playable setting for the TTRPG.
There have also been a couple of blogposts go up recently that relate to stuff I’ve talked about here. C7‘s own WFRP blog posted about Crime & Punishment in WFRP, in particular relating to how GMs can incorporate it into games without alienating players. Meanwhile, the ‘Ironlands’ blog posted about handling 4e combat efficiently, i.e. the same topic I discussed a couple of weeks ago regarding calculating damage (which sparked a brief but lively discussion on Reddit here). I’ve added Ironlands to the blogroll (to be found under Links at the top of the page).
