Mordheim - City of the Damned & Vermintide

Even The End Times seem to burn the entire Warhammer world, there are still new products coming. Two new games are on the way:

Mordheim - City of the Damned
Mordheim: City of the Damned is the first video game adaptation of Games Workshop's cult classic tabletop game Mordheim. Set in the Warhammer World's decimated Empire city, Mordheim: City of the Damned is a turn-based tactical game where you lead warbands into bloody and lethal skirmishes. The game blends RPG elements, fast-paced tactical combat and intricate unit customization in a time wrought by chaos and rivalry where only the strongest survive.

After a twin tailed comet crashed on Mordheim, the City of Damned turned into a terrifying battlefield where rival warbands fight fiercely for the control of key neighborhoods, looking for glory and fortune by acquiring the very valuable Wyrdstone fragments.

Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide
Independent developer Fatshark announced today the development of Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, a co-operative action first person shooter and melee combat adventure set in the End Times of the iconic Warhammer Fantasy universe.

In Vermintide, the city of Ubersreik is under siege as players select from a band of five heroes with different play-styles and abilities, all equipped with unique gear and personalities. Working together cooperatively, players must use their individual attributes to survive an apocalyptic invasion from hordes of relentless, power hungry Skaven, across a range of environments stretching from the top of the Magnus Tower to the bowels of the Under Empire.

The End Times Timeline & Map

I have been updating Warhammer timeline for years, keeping all the current happenings listed. Well, then came The End Times. Now, it very much seems that my efforts are pretty much at the end as the Warhammer world burns... Hopefully not, but let's see how these things play out. But, I did start a timeline for The End Times.

You can find the The End Times Timeline and The End Times Map from the Universal Rules & Timelines -page.

Here's few notes about the timeline:
  • Timeline was created to serve Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. To organize the events and to connect them to all the other events published in all the other products. The focus is in the Old World and the Empire. It also has various small other details there and there.
  • It serves years 2521 to 2524 (for now). The End Times do not end there. In fact, they basically start from the year 2525, when all the really apocalyptic events start. But most of the adventures and campaigns for WFRP2 and WFRP3 were created and set to this time period.
  • It is not just The End Times. I have collected previous information from the WFRP sources, WFB sources, novels...etc. and updated those events to this timeline best I can. For example Storm of Chaos (SoC) doesn't anymore happen as it happened originally, when it was published first time. It's rebooted, not gone, but different. So, all the stuff related to that have changed more or less.
  • I have presented few ideas for various WFRP campaigns set to this time period. What might change and how.
  • As for campaigns - For example events of the new The Enemy Within (WFRP3) are now placed on the year 2522 (as they are in the campaign actually) and connected with other stuff going on. Originally I placed them to the year 2521 in original SoC timeline, but The End Times changed this...
  • With this timeline, there is also a map, with various new places mentioned in the timeline/The End Times. I have used the Gitzmans Gallery's Super Huge Detailed World Map.
  • So, this is just the first draft, and we will have too see if I have interest to update the timeline to the end...
