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!
A few years back I started a challenge for WFRP players to create a onesheet adventure for Solstice. We did it a couple of times and after some time off I decided that the stars are right for another friendly competition.
In the old days WFRP was supposedly created as a “fantasy version of Call of Cthulhu”. I think this idea is still very good one and one we should follow in this challenge. Bring in the mysteries, cults and weird uncles. Raise up the dead ones and whisper threaded names in ancient libraries.
A present a challenge for all players and GMs alike. Create a onesheet akin the ones in official supplements and at the my download section.
The “rules” are as follows
- It has to do with either Winter Solstice, apocalyptic visions, aligned stars and/or end of the world.
- Tone down the fighting, increase the horror rating.
- Keep it system free, if possible (for editions to enjoy your work).
- Post your entry before 18th of December.
- At 19th of December I’ll open a poll for two days of voting. If I don’t remember to do this send me emails. Or call me. Or poke me at Facebook (Lauri Maijala) or something. I tend to forget thinds. The winner will be declared at 21th of Decembet (Finland time).
- No prices but fun adventures!
You might want to check out this guide (The Lazy Man’s Guide to Constructing a Call of Cthulhu Adventure).
Send your onesheet to me at doc_cthulhu (at) hotmail.com and I’ll host them here.
Don’t get too shy about this. If you have a good idea, post it. If you come up with something completely different, post it. Want to do it anynomously? Just do it! Main reason for this is to get a number of entries. I have already had to entries and didn’t even check if they meet the criteria.
As a final note: If you want to you can use my #mapvember challenge maps from my Guild’s IG feed. I can send you a larger, scanned file, should you need them.
An evil fiend has done a deep most horrible! He has stolen the priced jewel of von Perle‘s canines!
This deed cannot go unpunished! When the need arises heroes must seize it. Will the party be up to the challenge of the Mystery of the Stolen Thunder? Find out by downloading the newest one page scenario – now in two pages!

I received this actually yesterday but was too busy watching movies and celebrating the Winter Solstice that I forgot to add it here. However all is good that end well, here is the third onesheet for the Winter Solstice Challenge.

Today I posted this on StS and FFG’s forums:
In the old days WFRP was supposedly created as a “fantasy version of Call of Cthulhu”. I think this idea is still very good one. Bring in the mysteries, cults and weird uncles. Raise up the dead ones and whisper threaded names in ancient libraries.
In addition to the one I wrote I received one from Sami Uusitalo (who you might remember from various writings – most recently the Four Truths About the Beast of Bögen).
I’m still hopeful that we receive a few additional onesheets. But as I’m getting ready to watch movies and enjoy the Winter Solstice evening I decided to put up the two entries already.
The Opener of Ways is my entry and The Prehensile-tailed Comet is the one that Sami wrote. We are hoping you will enjoy them both.
All in all have a very scart Solstice.
And an eldritch new year…
