WFRP: Bergsburg is back

One of the more impressive fan projects for any game, any edition, has been the Bergsburg Project. It is, fittingly enough, a collection of information describing the city of Bergsburg, located somewhere in the Empire.

The existence of Bergsburg in GW canon has been a bit on and off, and as a tribute to this (at least I think it's a tribute) the Bergsburg Project has also been a bit on and off over the years. Up until recently this status has been "off".

But fear not, dear Bergsburg fan! Some person known to me only as the Snotling has revived the city. What foul greenskin magics the Snotling might have used to achieve this feat is unbeknownst to me and the with hunters of the empire, but the result is magnificient.

Bergsburg lives again!

So as a massive fan of city based adventures I heartily endorse this action, be it heresy in the eyes of the Games Workshop gods or not!

Thanks to The Snotling Foundation.

WFRP: A more beautiful Altdorf

Today I stumbled across a post at Strike-to-Stun that showcased another take at Altdorf. It is the user gyldernstern that has started work on a map with a different look than the iAltdorf map I produce.

Click here to see the post!

Click here to see an example of the map.

I think this looks fantastic! It is an inspiration to me that gyldernstern finds use of my map. And I completely agree with his analysis of my creation. I scattered buildings on a whim and they don't really give a realistic impression of the city. Too much needless detail.

So the style he has adopted seems superior to me. It shows the blocks and inner courtyards which leaves a lot of leeway for the Game Master to place locations. I have sometimes been hindered by the detail of my map, and a bit more abstraction works better.

Alas, I will probably not be able to redraw my own map to the style presented by gyldernstern, even though I think it is superior. So I fully endorse his project and hope that he manages to find time and energy to complete it!

And gyldernstern, if you have any need for my source files, just drop me a line.

WFRP: Help wanted (21)

"My Anton is missing! He hasn't been home for a week, and his mother is sick and needs his care. He went to work for The Fish at the dockside but now he's gone! Please, anyone, can anyone help!"

 - A distraught young woman pleading for help in the Drecksack Bezirk.
 
Will the player characters respond to the call for help? Anna Shipulin and Anton Trotter is supposed to be married as soon as Anton earns enough money for them to move from Drecksack to Sindelfingen district. But now he is gone! Anton has a penchant for get rich quick schemes, but he invariably fails and ends up with nothing but dreams of a better life for him, his fiance and his crippled mother. But how will the players react? There's not much money in a mission like this ... unless Anton's disappearance is a part of a much greater enigma!

Go here to download the complete iAltdorf map!

WFRP: Minor update to iAltdorf map (1.21)

Today I spent the evening making a minor update to the iAltdorf map. This is in response to a request from Charles Glass to add two locations, and while doing so I also noticed some other errors which I fixed.

As always, the download page has the link to the archive as well as the change list. The current version is now 1.21.

Thanks Charles for the feedback!

WFRP: Second edition offered as POD


This morning I woke up to a news post at RPGnews.com that declared that WFRPv2 is offered as a POD option at Drivethrurpg.com.

Crazy news. Pretty crazy prices as well, but I'm sorely tempted to buy a core rulebook just to check the quality.

WFRP: Blogging the Old World from A to Z

I've been remiss in my sworn duty to point your attention to WFRP content. To make some small amount of amends, I direct you to the magnificent A to Z blogging coming to a close at Another Caffeinated Day. Last year I heaped praise on the effort and this year is no different.

This year two writers have collaborated on this project, and as the challenge draws to a close you can find them at the letter W. Which is Warpstone, but fittingly enough also WFRP.

Click here for the A to Z challenge posts from Another Caffienated Day!

Thank you Tim for doing this again this year.
