WFRP: Colourful Magic

Last week we shared another blog post on Magic in WFRP from Clive Oldfield. Clive started playing WFRP virtually the day it came out, back in 1986 and has contributed to the second, third and fourth editions of the RPG, as well as the officially unofficial Warpstone magazine and so is an excellent source of information! 

If you missed Clive’s previous post – you can find it here.

Colourful Magic

Hi All, for this article I’m having a look at magic in WFRP and ways to bring its distinctive tone to the gaming table. Any game is going to be enhanced by a GM who can convey some of the unpredictability of the Winds of Chaos, and by a Wizard player who can convey some of the otherworldliness of their profession.

WFRP: The Enemy Within Volume 2: Death on the Reik

The PDF for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay The Enemy Within Volume 2: Death on the Reik is almost ready for release. We are just adding some final polish to the book, which has taken a little longer than anticipated. This includes some rather intricate covers for the Collector’s Edition. The first of these should really put the death into Death on the Reik…

The first book of the set will be available for preorder soon, with the PDF available to download immediately. Death on the Reik’s Companion is coming along nicely, and is packed with the same bevy of additional NPCs, extra content, adventures, and rules that were found in the Enemy in Shadows Companion. We are aiming to release the Companion PDF in July.

‘The Enemy Within Campaign is off to a cracking start with these two books and I can’t wait to see how the following books continue this trend. Cubicle 7 have done a great job taking this classic of the 80’s and bringing it up to date with all the production values and gloss of modern roleplaying supplements while keeping it’s grubby sinister heart intact

Following the cataclysmic events of the Necroquake, the newly reclaimed city of Brightspear is in desperate need of supplies and support. A huge Kharadron fleet has been assembled to bring provisions, would-be settlers, and enterprising merchants to the new city. Joining the expedition are a group of unlikely heroes — Soulbound, mortal beings chosen by the gods to defend the Mortal Realms. But even they may be no match for the trials that are to come…

Crash and Burn is an exciting introductory adventure that takes a party of Soulbound on an arduous journey across Aqshy — the Realm of Fire. The party set out from the bustling metropolis of Hammerhal Aqsha as part of a massive fleet of Kharadron airships tasked with delivering vital supplies to the newly reclaimed city of Brightspear. But the forces of Chaos will not let them pass so easily, and the party will have to contend with Tzeentchian horrors and other vile creatures if they hope to reach Brightspear alive.
