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.
A huge project by FFG forum user Yepesnopes is finished. This tremendous work is nothing less than a major league supplement for WFRP3. It introduces the Asur (or the High Elves) for players and GMs alike and includes careers, items, pets and a complete the book.
This what the writer has to say about his project for the readers of the Daily Empire:
After three editions of Warhammer fantasy role play game, three different editions of Dwarf supplements (they have even a magazine called White Dwarf), and no Elf supplement at all; in this times where we are working to correct gender discrimination, I decided to work to correct race discrimination!
In this fan project you will find the recompilation of the recent history of the Asur and some of their most fabled heroes, descriptions of the different regions of Ulthuan and house rules for regional features of the Asur, Elven culture and religion, a short description of Elftown the largest high elf settlement in the land of men, house rules for High Elf nobles in the harsh Empire lands, and the role of high magic in the Asur every-day life as well as house rules for High Magic apprenticeship.
All this is supported by several new careers and some already existing careers re-edited with an elf flavor.
The Book has been uploaded to the vaults of the Daily Empire and it can be downloaded HERE (zip).
