Empire in Ruins – Enemy Within Campaign Director’s Cut Volume 5

Empire in Ruins is the fifth volume of the revised and updated Director’s Cut of The Enemy Within, one of most highly regarded roleplaying campaigns ever written. After the events of The Horned Rat the heroes have won the respect and trust of many in Middenheim, but before they can capitalise on their renown the Empire descends into the turmoil of civil strife.

In the final part of the five-part series of grim and perilous Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay adventures, a number of threats that the Characters may have thought far behind them reassert their influence. Icons of authority and leadership are found wanting, and the greatest nation in the Old World appears destined to shake itself to pieces. Only by undertaking a dangerous journey can the Characters prevent the ruination of all they hold dear.

Empire in Ruins Includes:

  • The fifth part of The Enemy Within campaign, conceived by legendary WFRP writer Graeme Davis with contributions by a team of talented WFRP writers.
  • The schemes of the Altdorf cell of the Purple Hand, whose plots place those of Karl-Heinz Wasmeier and the Middenheim cell in the shade.
  • The ambitions of a certain Magister Impedimentae, how they coincide with the grand designs of the Purple Hand, and how they diverge.
  • A culmination of controversies that have featured in adventures over the past few years. The true architect of the Ubersreik takeover, the rouser of Beastmen and mutants, the inspiration of Daemonologists and heretics, shall be revealed.
  • Memorable villains such as the Madcraw tribe, the Threshers, and the multifarious departments of the remaining Purple Hand.

One of the best-known fantasy roleplaying campaigns, all roleplayers should play The Enemy Within at least once in their lives. Cubicle 7’s Director’s Cut provides more options, guidance, and detail than before, making Empire in Ruins and other episodes in this epic series an essential purchase for gamers.

The Empire Map

The Empire — is there a greater nation in all the Old World? From the Sea of Claws in the north to the Border Princes to the south, the Empire covers a vast swath of territory. Mighty rivers and muddy roads weave their way through looming forests and rolling hills. Each of the Grand Provinces has its own character, from the Reikland’s refined citizens to Sylvania’s cursed nobility.  Though beset with internal 3strife, the provinces still consent to be ruled by a chosen Emperor. The Empire has seen off external threats from Orcs, Bretonians and the madness that roils forth from the Chaos Wastes, but how much longer will it stand against The Enemy Within?

A beautifully illustrated map by renowned artist Jared Blando, this fine piece of stunning cartography, commissioned in 2513 IC, shows off the Empire in all its glory. It is the perfect accompaniment to any WFRP campaign, with enough detail to explore provinces far beyond the Reikland. The carefully illustrated map provides the perfect backdrop for the Enemy Within, the epic five-part campaign that defined roleplaying for a generation.
