ZWEIHÄNDER RPG - Warhammer Knights & Templars

More Warhammer fan-rules for ZWEIHÄNDER RPG. I decided to create more detailad profession rules for Warhammer Knighthood. This includes new professions, with various options, to make different Warhammer knightly orders little more unique. It features pretty much all the knightly orders (knights and templars) I remembered. And there are own profession for Bretonnians, Elves and Dwarfs.

AND even more - I also decided to expand bestiary and created more detailed rules about various mounts and other beasts of burden. Finally, there is optional advanced Encumbrance and Size-level rules.

In the far north, between the Chaos Wastes and the Sea of Claws, lies Norsca.

ZWEIHÄNDER RPG - Warhammer Racial & Cultural Traits: Old World (and Beyond)

My first ZWEIHÄNDER RPG fan-rules. Idea is to expand and give more "Warhammer-feel" to the racial stats given in ZWEIHÄNDER RPG Core Rulebook. Also, to bring cultural options from Old World (and little beyond too). This gives some new edges to character creation and makes various cultures more unique between each other. ZWEIHÄNDER RPG has well balanced system and you should notice, that these racial and cultural traits make the races little unbalanced between each other. Idea is to keep the system pretty stable and these traits give just some extra edges, but nothing too powerful.

You can find the document from this link, and from ZWEIHÄNDER Rules -page of my site:
ZWEIHÄNDER - Warhammer Racial & Cultural Traits: Old World

Document features:
  • Racial Traits. These give the races (Dwarfs, Elves, Halflings, Humans, Ogres and Gnomes) more Warhammer-feel.
  • Magic. Some ideas about both Arcane and Divine magic traditions and what professions you can use from ZWEIHÄNDER RPG game system. Remember, this is for the Core Rulebook, which presents limited number of careers. Future products may produce more unique professions and magical traditions, with spells.
  • Cultural Traits. You can choose which Warhammer culture your character comes from and gain few edges based on that culture/background. Cultural Traits present you own language, Racial Trait Options, Regional Knowledge and then the actual Traits.
  • And some other extra rules and ideas...
Traits itself are build, so they would work with any Traits & Talents gained from professions, still giving some bonuses, even you gain similar ones.

Total War: WARHAMMER II - Coming 2017

Total War: WARHAMMER trilogy is coming to second game. This time it's time to take the war to shores beyond Old World - High Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen and a mysterious fourth race, yet to be revealed...

Total War: WARHAMMER 2 - Announcement Cinematic Trailer

From official description:

The second in a trilogy and sequel to the award-winning Total War: WARHAMMER, Total War: WARHAMMER II brings players a breathtaking new narrative campaign, set across the vast continents of Lustria, Ulthuan, Naggaroth and the Southlands. The Great Vortex Campaign builds pace to culminate in a definitive and climactic endgame, an experience unlike any other Total War title to date.

Playing as one of 8 Legendary Lords across 4 iconic races from the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, players must succeed in performing a series of powerful arcane rituals in order to stabilise or disrupt The Great Vortex, while foiling the progress of the other races. Each Legendary Lord has a unique geographical starting position, and each race offers a distinctive new playstyle with unique campaign mechanics, narrative, methods of war, armies, monsters, Lores of Magic, legendary characters, and staggering new battlefield bombardment abilities.

Shortly after launch, owners of both the original game and Total War™ WARHAMMER II will gain access to the colossal new combined campaign. Merging the landmasses of The Old World plus Naggaroth, Lustria, Ulthuan and the Southlands into a single epic map, players may embark on monumental campaigns as any owned Race from both titles.

Nordland story

It is time to publish another story from Hamza Changazi (aka Kolsveinn), a great Norsca-fan, who has written a great story about the Norse titled: Nordland. It is a story about mysterious boy, who meets group of Northmen reavers (Norse) and what happens after that. I love this story and the characters. It really leaves you wanting to read more about them. Direct link to story below and it can also be found from my Norsca -page.

Total War: WARHAMMER - Isabella von Carstein DLC

In life, the daughter of Sylvania’s mad count Otto Von Drak was much like any other of her noble counterparts: vain, immoral and selfish.

Upon her father’s death, the first and greatest of the Vampire counts, Vlad Von Carstein, seized the reigns of the province, and was duly married to Isabella. She was soon drawn to Vlad’s intense charisma, and he in turn came to rely upon her unquestioning support and devotion absolutely; what began as a marriage of convenience transformed into a partnership of legend. As she lay dying from a wasting disease, Vlad granted her the Blood Kiss, and she joined him in eternal undeath.

Now, Isabella is a powerful Vampire in her own right, and may be seen stalking the front lines bearing the Blood Chalice of Bathori. When she joins Vlad on the same battlefield, their combat prowess is multiplied, each standing shoulder to shoulder with their beloved in death!

New Legendary Lord joins the forces of Vampire Counts: Isabella Von Carstein. Actually - Isabella off course joins Von Carstein faction with her beloved Vlad Von Carstein. She is free to download from Steam.

Awesome Lies - classical The Enemy Within: A Companion

AWESOME LIES blog started just recently and it has been very active. Blog is full of interesting "retro musings" about Warhammer. There are many interesting articles, but I have to mention this one especially - classical The Enemy Within: A Companion.

With classical The Enemy Within I mean the original The Enemy Within (TEW), that was published originally by Games Workshop in the late 1980s and later in the 1990s by Hoghshead Publishing. It is the most legendary and widely praised campaign ever made for WFRP and highly regarded RPG campaign outside Warhammer circles too. Most Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay fans and players are familiar about the campaign and have played it (some even multiple times). Campaign itself is made from several linked adventures. You can find more about it from Wikipedia: The Enemy Within Campaign.

Back to AWESOME LIES - The Enemy Within: A Companion. Gideon has made great effort to bring this companion together. It is great addition to original campaign material, providing greater explanation, giving more supplementary material and help to Game Masters. And that is not all. Gideon is bringing even more ideas to table - AWESOME LIES - Twists in the Tale.
