Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay


Hogshead Publishing - 1986
    On the surface, it is a civilized and cultured place, where only the occasional conspiracy, assassination, revolution or invasion by orcs, goblins, beastmen, or mutants disrupts the feudal order. Yet a shadow hangs over the world, cast by the corrupting hand of Chaos. From the Imperial court in Altdorf to the pirate-ridden coast of south Tilea, a few heroes strive to hold back the forces of howling Chaos, while it's hidden servants scheme from within to bring the world to it's knees before the Dark Gods." Warhammer FRP is a role-playing game set in the Warhammer world, a background developed by Games Workshop and used in the best-selling Warhammer Fantasy Battles and Warhammer Quest games. The three games are compatible, and characters can be transferred between them with a little fiddling. The Warhammer world is a grim place of perilous adventure. It's a little like Europe at the time of the early Renaissance, with all its corruption, villainy and opportunities for adventure; but this is a world of inhuman races, wizards, mutants, terrifying monsters and the dread shadow of Chaos, which stretches over the entire land. In WFRP, Chaos is not just a force of nature, but a living, malevolent thing supported by demonic princes who will not rest until the entire world has been enslaved or destroyed. It's a dark game with an atmosphere of psychological and visceral horror, and a subtle seam of dark humour at its heart.
