So why this page? After over twenty years of playing dozens of different Role Playing Games my gaming group started playing WFRP 2nd Edition. It has been about all we have played for the last year. I have fallen in love with the system and setting. I have mostly been a player but have also GMed the group for Through the Drakwald and Ashes of Middenheim, and will eventually go through the rest of Paths of the Damned series.
I have done historical reenactment as a 16th Century German Swiss Mercenary Captain for years and so the Renaissance German culture of the Empire is one I was very familiar with and interested in. Since finding WFRP I have immersed myself in the system and the setting, reading the Game books and novels, playing Warhammer: Online, and following forums about the game.
I have started compiling information and needed a place to make it available to the members of our gaming group and others that may find it interesting.
If you find anything useful please sign the Questbook and let me know.
My character in our main WFRP game is Ulrich Rotkopf, 20 year old Witch Hunter, Ex-Veteran, Ex-Mercenary, Ex-Militiaman. Ulrich's (and my own) favorite weapon to fight with is the greatsword. Fighting with a greatsword especially against another greatsword is like a dance. Kreigtanzer translates as War Dancer, I was going to have it be Ulrich's nickname but then I discovered that War Dancer was an Elven warrior type in Warhammer so that ended that idea. I had already started using it for Warhammer stuff on the net, so it is my username for all things Warhammer related.
Ulrich just recently, on a shopping trip to Waldenhof, bought a pair of matched pistols, with hammers shaped like ravens and silver etching with raven motif on the barrels, that the Witch Hunter who commissioned them was six months late in picking up. So from now on he will be protecting the Empire from the forces of Chaos with Gunpowder and Greatsword.
