This is the index for the WFRP2 campaign I ran in 2005/06. The campaign featured:
I have left out a couple of inconsequential posts which have nothing to do with the actual story (these can be found via the 'my little old world' label). The campaign history is otherwise presented exactly as I wrote it, warts and all.

Fascinating and definitely epic stuff!

Oh, you read some? Thanks gnome. It's part of what I hope will be an ongoing project- indexing my roleplaying reports and any other notable series of articles. This one had been waiting to get done for a wee while so I just decided to get it out of the way. ;)

Seriously awesome stuff. I have always loved WFRPG, although admittedly it was more the first version which I ran.

We had a campaign that ran for quite some time when I was at school, with the two main PCs developing quite a life of their own due to, quite frankly, their sheer incompetence! Many a disaster was caused by their desire to rush headfirst into situations without thinking, and exacerbated by the fact that they had very much a love hate relationship. Happy happy days!

It was the RPG I enjoyed most, but I suppose this was partly from being immersed in the world through my WFB gaming and knowledge. Still, the combination of fun and adventure was always great, I do quite miss playing it.

Hello again NVW and thanks for your kind words. I've always preferred WFRP to WFB: it was my introduction to the Old World back in the late 80s; and I still regard it as the heart of this magnificent gaming setting. And you never know, you might get a chance to return to the Old World before you know it (just don't hold your breath!). ;)

You shouldn't be so cruel as to hold out such teasers! Seriously, WFRP allowed you to start as a ratcatcher, how could any game top that...
