Since I bought Warhammer Fantasy roleplay in 1989 it has become my main roleplaying game. If you are interested in talking about WFRP feel free to send me a mail. Games Workshop have unfortunately several years ago abandoned any new publications for WFRP. They have licensed out the rights to a company called Hogshead Games which actually have produced new material for WFRP.
I am currently gamemaster for an group called "The Draconians" consisting of 4 players. We started the Enemy Within campaign in August 1991 and completed the campaign in the summer of 1996. Here´s my comments for each of the books the Enemy Within campaign consists of.
This is a introductory adventure to get the players hooked to the main plot. It is well written and I give it 3 out of 5 in rating.
Shadows over Bögenhafen
This city adventure is regarded as one of the best ever produced for a roleplaying game. I cannot but agree. It contains just the right ingredients of horror and fast-moving action. When the adventurers arrive the great Schaffenfeast has just begun and the town bustles with people. But deep underground and high up in the society plans are being made to let chaos once again rule. Rating 4 out of 5.
Death on the Reik
In this, my favourite adventure, the players get hold of a riverboat and travels the river Reik in search of the lurking evil that inhabits the most unlikely of places. The adventurers will in this fast-moving adventure travel to both known and unknown places and finally meet the evil in it´s dark domain. Rating 5 out of 5.
Power Behind the Throne
This is a City-adventure where the players must act like detectives and move casually but swiftly in the higher societies where evil plots. A typical race-against-time adventure with an interesting plot. Rating 3 out of 5 (it´s a difficult adventure for the gamemaster).
Something rotten in Kislev
Acting on order of the Tzar Radhii Bokha, the players are sent away on three dangerous missions to deal with the evil, be it undead or roaming monsters. A great adventure, though strictly linear. Rating 4 out of 5.
Empire in Flames
The final eclips of the campaign. The adventurers are summoned by Boris Todbringer of Middenheim to attend in the capital Altorf where the election of the new emperor will be held. Nasty events follows and the adventurers is sent to recover the long lost hammer of Sigmar to restore the balance which threatens to end in a bloody civil war. At great peril, and with the city-states preparing for war, the adventurers race against time and travels by boat down the river and to the mountains. Rating 4 out of 5. This is truly an great adventure.
Fantasy litteratureI read my first fantasy book back in 1991. It was written by Richard A. Knaak and it´s title was "The Legend of Huma". It is still one of the best books I have ever read. Since then dozens of more fantasy books have followed.
My favourite authors are:
- Margaret Weiss & Tracy Hickman
- Raymond E. Feist
- Richard A. Knaak
