WFRP: a look at the history of the game

Here's a tip of the hat to the splendid site known as Kalevalahammer. Jackdays mantains many interesting projects, and one is to list some of the history of Warhammer.

I haven't checked it for accuracy, but knowing Jackdays there are good odds of it being spot on accurate. It would be cool if we could get stuff like the WFRP mailing list, launches of prominent fan sites and the publication of individual issues of Warpstone in there too!

FAL Tip: Cool links (3)

I stumbled on this link the other day. It's a page of illustrations from japanese childrens' books, depiciting monsters of all kinds. While they are decidedly asian in theme I found that several of them could easily be reimagined to fit the WFRP world.

WFRP: Signs of Faith is in the shelf

Yesterday I picked up Signs of Faith. It looks great, as do all FFG:s WFRP boxes, and I've started browsing it. The first thing that jumped at me was the mention of several places and people in Altdorf, so I'd better get cracking on updating the map.

The piecemeal approach of WFRPv3 have drawn its share of criticism, and initially I also found it frustrating that the information published was so scant. But after looking through Signs of Faith, I realise that this is actually something I could have the time to digest, as opposed to thick books with dense text. So there might be an advantage to this format that I have previously overlooked: it fits better with the time I have to read RPG material these days.

The lack of nice and cool maps is still a problem with all official WFRP stuff, though.
