Aww yes.

Ok I'm thinking about doing a sandbox WFRP campaign at some point, and I'm planning a folder full of tables and interesting things to help me wing stuff as I go along.

My list of stuff to make is currently at:

- Names
- Inns
- Travellers
- Roadway Encounters
- River Encounters
- Wilderness Encounters
- City Encounters
- Weather
- Travel Impediments (should maybe be included in Roadway Encounters)
- Interesting Personal Effects table for corpse looting
- Foods (pies and beer especially)
- Gossip/Rumours
- Newspaper/Notice board ads, some for fun, some as plot hooks. (LOST - One pegleg. Left at the Eel and Root in on Saturday. If found, please return to Leggy Jones)
- Horse descriptions
- Books
- Superstitions
- Calendar

Slightly over the top, but it should be fun. It might even be possible to string out the odd session just from that stuff and a good map.

Is there anything I'm missing that I should have?

I want to do a completely Dwarf-centric campaign set way back when their empire was at it's peak and they ran the whole Old World. The thing is that, besides them having a lot more Holds and the underway being operating properly I don't think I know much about how the world was back then.

While most saurus and kroxigors are simpleminded, skink society is fairly complex. Most skinks have independant personalities and can be compared to humans (save for their complete loyalty to their leaders).

Glad you like it.

By the way, a question fo the experts regarding that map. What part is the home for tha group of chaos nomads that live in their horses? From what the Liber Chaotica said I asumed that it was a fairly normal plain, but everything I see are places like BLASTED LANDS or DARK LANDS.

I'm guessing either the wolf lands (not sure because it looks kinda small) and the howling wastes.

The Hung are chaos nomads reputed to be the best horsemen in the world and are born in the saddle.
They are basically chaos Mongols.

Then there are the Ungols, who live in northern Kislev, the northern Dark Lands and north of Cathay.
They are Mongols but they are not chaos.

There are the Kurgan, who live north of the Old World, who are excellent horsemen.
They are nor Mongols, but they are chaos.

(Then there's the Hobgoblin Hegemony who are Mongols, but aren't chaos, aren't human and don't ride horses and the Ogre Kingdoms who are mongols, aren't humans and also don't ride horses)

So let's see, from west to east it would be:

Norscans->Kurgan/Hung->Ungols in the rest of the continent.


So it must be either the kurgan or the hung, I remember Liber Chaotica mentioning that the member of the tribe I'm thinking about mutilate their own when they are still babies to change the form of the skull...

In the great desert, isolated oasis lure in travellers with mirages of great gardens of pleasure, where the water nymphs feed them heavenly dates and hashish, before they reveal their scorpion nature and feed on them.

Dhar and Qhaysh are both the results of all the winds of magic mixing together, but the latter is simply a well balanced version.

Actually, I think Slann are as oblivious to what's really going on as everyone else, as there were some mentions in the lizardmen army book that they argue with each other about the Old Ones' great plan and what they should do about it after their masters' disappearance. And then there's this Mazamundi dude who believes that the plan isn't even started, and firstly all races must be returned to their proper places, but he doesn't have the uniform backing of all the other Slann.

Still, in terms of magic they're the baddest motherfuckers there, as the aforementioned Slann, in order to prevent invasions from Naggaroth, created a mountain chain with a single spell.

How does this sound as a character concept?

A Bretonnian initiate of Shallya whose parents were slightly too vocal about their belief that the Lady of the Lake was Shallya's servant, and were killed by a Grail Knight for it. She was young enough at the time to not be killed out of hand, and is currently torn between her vow of and general belief in peace and healing with extreme anger at Bretonnia's nobility and in the concept of the Lady of the Lake in general. To solve this problem for the time being, she wants to get the hell out of Bretonnia.

Sensible decision.

>> No.17994094

>>17993733
Actually, since Gold Wizardry uses so little of the winds, Alchemy isn't badly effected.
The reason why Empire Wizards are better Alchemists than Arabyan ones is that when the order was founded they tempted a lot of Arabyan alchemists over to their side.

Bright Wizardry is known to cluster around deserts.
Araby is one big desert, even with the vortex sapping the magic, there's going to be quite a bit of Aqshy energies. Enough for firebreathing magics to be commonplace, and Pyromancers to exist in force.

Heirophants have their work cut out for them, Hysh is one of the hardest winds to work with, however, it is also the one that teaches binding and control of Djinns. Thus although their personal power isn't as great as northern Light Wizards, their usage of binding rather than banishment grants them mighty servents.


The Sorcerers Isles lay on an an almost direct course from Araby to Ulthuan, and thus it's likely that the winds flowing to the vortex converge over the islands, making them ideal places for Wizards to themselves converge.
It was here that the Arabyan petty wizards first made pacts with the high elves who they traded with for Arcane Lore, allowing them to become powerful sorcerers.
It is said that the winds are so potent around the isles, that a wizard can walk from one island to another on them.

Ah, good, I thought I killed the thread.

The only trouble (aside from the ever-present possibility of my GM vanishing after the one conversation we had last night) is that I already rolled up a female transvestite knight-errant who set out after a complicated series of events wound up with her older sister dying in a stupid quest of valor and she herself killing her (at the time drunk and violent) father in a swordfight. Given that she's not married and her father is dead, she believes she's still following the female code of chivalry because there's no one to obey, and her highest ambition is to prove herself to the Lady of the Lake. She's also known for fraternizing with peasants.

For some reason, all of my WFRP ideas are for Bretonnian women extremely ambivalent about their country. I think this is because... Bretonnia is terrible, but I always feel so much more hooked into a Bretonnian origin than I would with any Imperial one. I'd rather travel the Empire than Bretonnia, but can't quite make someone born in the Empire.

It's a line from the Bretonnia book, about how both Grail Knights and Grail Damsels "ruthlessly suppress" any notions of the "Lady is a servant of Shallya" heresy. It seemed a logical conclusion.

Granted, she did stop believing it, though now she more believes that the Lady is either a usurper of Shallya's power or possibly some other entity altogether who's turned the Grail Knights and by extension Bretonnia into her personal puppets, so... not quite an improvement.

Repanse was a Bretonian girl who rallied the peasantry to fight off a massive greenskin invasion. She's pretty much the Bretonnian Jeanne D'Arc, and one of the only woman to be knighted in Bretonnia being dubbed the King's champion or some such.

Which was retconned into 'given a parcel of land and noble title' after the no girls rule was enforced. She might not even have the noble title any more.

Here's idea for lizardmen quest (quite obvious anyway):
Recovering stolen artifacts of the Old Ones.
You can go near - pursuing nosy human explorers or small raiding parties in the jungle or small settlements,
or far far away, basically anyplace those stolen artifacts were carried. And mind you, most of them are made of pure gold, so they could change hands quite frequently.
Beside that there is Vampire Coast, Skavens, Dark Elves, etc. All trying to kill you and steal those magical trinkets of your toad-boss.

Probably the modern period? I'm not sure. I'm really not that familiar with Warhammer's history (I've only had the core rulebook for about two days, and am still trying to gather more sourcebooks).

Not really.
Marco Colombo brought back ships full of gold (don't ask how he got it), so there was kind of rush-for-the-new-world, but Lizardmen and Lustria proved much more demanding than our world indians. Plus Dark Elves. Plus Skavens. Plus mad vampire ruling large undead empire called (surpirise, surpirse) Vampire Coast.
As of Warhammer present time there are only small coastal colonies, more similar to portugese african trading post than full scale colonisation.
Biggest colonial town is called Skeggi, and was founded by norsmen, if I remember correctly.
It was described in White Dwarf 309.
