Another Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Gem

First edition WFRP adventure modules and such are not always easy to find. When you do, they are usually a bit on the steep side price-wise. I scored Volume 1 of The Enemy Within Campaign (to add to Death on the Reik vol 3) on the cheap. I don't think I will ever run this as a straight up adventure, but I can use it as a resource for ideas. I really love the 1st ed Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play world. This copy has a minor crease in the lower right corner, but the pages inside are clean and crisp and the the handouts are still attached in the back :)

As always, the art in the original WFRP products brings out the feeling that it actually is a "Grim World of Perilous Adventure"!

This "adventure" is a great source book, because it contains such things as:

  • A Brief History of the Empire
  • Political Structure of the Empire (Provinces, Noble Houses, Guilds, Taxes, etc)
  • Religion in the Empire (Imperial & Chaos Cults)
  • Geography of the Empire
  • Herb Uses
  • Travel Movement Rates for land and sea
  • Imperial Calendar (complete with festivals)
  • and of course, an adventure relating to a conspiracy to destroy destroy the Empire and all of the machinations that go with such a plot!

  1. If I'm not mistaken, that's the Hogshead edition, which has the old Volume I: Mistaken Identity and Volume II: Shadows over Bogenhafen in the same book. So you've now got the first three TEW adventures, even though the book is only presented as Volume I. Ignore if you already knew this.

  2. Yes, Scott, it is the Hogshead edition. There have been so many printings of TEW that I did not realize that it had material added in this printing. Cool!
