SWL - Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay
“And at the appointed time we shall rise from our secret places and throw down the towns and cities of The Empire. Our brethren shall pour forth from the forests to slay and burn. Chaos will cover the land and we, the chosen servants, shall be exalted in HIS eyes.”
“Hail to Tzeentch, Changer of the Ways – Njawrr’thakh ’Lzimbarr Tzeentch”
- Excerpt from The Book of Transmutation
This campaign is an edited version of Games Workshop’s classic campaign The Enemy Within. The campaign was designed for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (WFRP)in the mid 80s so is based around the first edition of that game. We will be using mechanics from WFRP 2e. Do not go and find the campaign books and read them, I will know and it will ruin your fun.
This campaign, and WFRP in general, are far more plot and roleplay driven than our previous combat-heavy D&D campaign so be aware that advancement is based around these ideas. The story arc is complex, with notoriously detailed NPCs, so this wiki has been created to ensure that we have a central place where the characters’ understanding of the world can be kept up to date.
In WFRP you aren’t some superhero, you start off as a commoner and there are much tougher opponents out there. So you will have to avoid some fights and use tactics at all times. There will be deaths, infected wounds, the loss of limbs and characters going insane, so be prepared and use your lateral thinking – who knows, you may even survive!
Experience will be showered upon those who update the adventure log, the wiki, their characters, and NPC profiles regularly.
