It’s ALIVE!!!

Some recent news:

  • WFRP4 is out and I played and ran it last weekend at Tobcon 2 in London. I liked it! Is it exactly what I wanted out of a 4e? No, of course not. But it’s an improvement on 2e, while returning to much of what was good about that game.
  • I’ve posted the notes and pregens for the 4e game I ran at Tobcon here, under Downloads. They are just notes, though.
  • Cubicle 7 have also been putting out cleaned-up PDFs of all the 1e material, including hard-to-find stuff like ‘Marienburg: Sold Down the River’. You can get them via Drivethru here.
  • The first supplement for Zweihänder, Main Gauche, is in the last few days of its Kickstarter here. It’s funded and is currently going for more stretch goals. It covers Chaos, among other things.

Once you’ve got your head round having to calculate in fractions, it’s pretty easy.

Last weekend was TobCon, successor to WimCon and, ultimately, TimCon. It’s a great little Warhammer con frequented by long-time WFRP fans, including those behind Warpstone and Liber Fanatica. You can read various people’s reactions to the games they ran and played in (including my games) in the thread here.

Anyway, I ran two games, both Zweihänder, and played two. I’ve talked about the games I played in over in the StS thread I just linked to. Here I’d like to offer some thoughts about the games I ran – the intentions I had, how I felt Zweihänder worked, and how I had to adjust on the fly.
