This column is back again. Thank you for all the positive responses/comments. It’s nice to know that you actually use the WFRP web radar.
With the second issue of the regular column “The WFRP web radar” which you are reading now, WFRP web sites have been added to the radar, so please bear with me if some of the additions from those sites are not brand new, but new enough if you missed them.
To save me from the witch hunters, let me say that the owners of the web sites mentioned below and authors of new material all credit that belongs to them. They deserve it. I send all of you a big hug.
Okay, let’s roll…
Recent mentionable updates of English WFRP web sites…
…leads us to the Kalevala Hammer web site with just one more update to the famous Norsca map (v1.6 this time), a list of carnivals & festivals which the author just started to collect plus the initial version of a map of Nuln plus an agenda of sources for this map.
The Shadow Warriors Role-Playing Club presents two additional session summaries for their ongoing Tim Eccles’ campaign “Things to Do in Carroburg Before you Die”. Plus, Tim started just another campaign: “The Petrum Expedition”.
Big announcement at the Warpstone magazine website: Issue 27 of my all-time-favorite fanzine for WFRP will be out “soon”. You can see the title page plus a summary page already.
Recent mentionable updates of Non-English WFRP web sites…
The German website Imdacil added three german documents to their download section: a character sheet, some basic tables for stats and fitting translations for most of the WFRP-related vocabulary. You have to be registered to download something though.
IGAROL’s (Spanish web site) downloads are working again, so they are on the radar now with an NPC called Karlten, a couple of Spanish translations of rules material already available in English and a Spanish character sheet for WFRP. There are further additions, but those were blatantly copied from other sources.
The French web site Chaodisque contains three new WFRP downloads: the game supplement “Camps Nouveau”, a short story and fourty maps. The first two items can be downloaded from La Scénariothèque, too.
Again, the Italian WFRP resource web site Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay – La Locanda delle due Lune offers many new PDF downloads. Since the last web radar, six articles hit the shelves: two elven careers, one dwarven career, an official Italian Q&A document, the first part of an equipment price list and a Timeline. And there’s a map for use with Warhammer, though the summary on the download page says that it’s not compatible with WFRP.
And there’s news from the Scandinavian frontier: I discovered (but cannot read) two new Finnish – rather active – WFRP web sites, the web log “Kirottujen sivupoluilla” and a campaign journal web site. Please judge by yourself if they contain anything worth your attention.
Recent mentionable updates that just did not happen…
Well, actually this is slippery ground, so I want to say sorry to anybody who does not agree to the following:
Okay, everything mentioned at that point in the last web radar column is still true. Black Industries did not do any WFRP preview of 2008 WFRP products (though a fan-initiated forum thread thread can be found about this), and other games seem to have BI’s main focus right now. I haven’t heard anything from Roysten Crow and the ending of his Fragments of Twilight campaign, and Liber Fanatica is still down. I saw a note on a BI forum proposing that this would only be the case for a short number of days, but time tells us otherwise.
The glorious exception and therefore duly complimented is the Warpstone magazine.
Further updates that just did not happen: I am still looking for volunteers who scan certain WFRP web forums for interesting items which may be mentionable for all. Those groups or individuals should be able to provide a summary every month or so.
