|Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay | Published 07 April 2010|
I’m excited to be able to tell WFRP fans that The Gathering Storm has finally arrived in our warehouse. I just checked them over and approved the shipment. So what does that mean? Now that it’s been approved, The Gathering Storm will start making its way to distributors – which means it will be available to players very soon!
Given this slight delay, I appreciate your patience and understanding – we wanted to make sure this first adventure for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay got off on the right foot, and I did not want to compromise the high quality and production values Fantasy Flight Games is known for. Once you get your hands on The Gathering Storm, I’m confident you and your players will agree that it was worth the wait.
The Gathering Storm is a complete campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. The story centres around a series of bizarre events that bring the heroes face-to-face with dangerous enemies, moral dilemmas, and the raw fury of nature.
In addition to providing many sessions of exciting adventure, the campaign guide provides detailed information on the town of Stromdorf and a number of its odd citizens. Colourful maps bring Stromdorf and the surrounding region to life. The Gathering Storm includes one full colour Campaign Book, more than 20 new Standard American (2 1/4" x 3 1/2") size cards (including actions, locations, and items), more than 20 new Mini American (1 5/8" x 2 1/2") size cards (including miscasts, wounds, talents, and insanities), six full colour maps & player handouts, more than 20 new NPC and enemy standups… and much more!
The Gathering Storm has it all. Death. Misery. Peril. Suffering. Disaster. And that’s just the weather.
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is a roleplaying game that sets unlikely heroes on the road to perilous adventure, in the grim setting of Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy world. Players will venture into the dark corners of the Empire, guided by luck and Fate, and challenge the threats that others cannot or will not face.
I think 2nd edition is best let go...The third ed is friggin' amazing. The only thing bad about it is a distinct lack of source material at this stage. Given time 3rd edition will overshadow its previous incarnations. My hope for the gathering storm is that it is as good a setting as it is an adventure.
Hurry up and get here, already....
Nice thing about 2ed is that you can just wing it if need be... take the storyline, and then make the antagonists and monsters with 2ed stats... LOTS or 2ed resources to draw on for that.
Now, I don't think that this will be easy to run on 2nd ed but still You can try it.
I'm glad that The Gathering Storm finaly is here, I only hope that it will be very soon avaliable in Europe.
Any chance this will be easy to run with second edition rules?
Everything our group has seen in materials have been nothing but top notch. I'm sure this will be no different.
This is wonderful news. I can't wait to assemble players to go through this adventure! Now if only those darn FFG sleeves could be reprinted faster. I've become overly protective of all of my games!
Hooray ! sooner than I thought!
Yay! Awesome news!
I agree with the previous comments. if we get a longer adventure with the same quality as Eye for an Eye, but with improved handouts and maps, it is going to be a great material.
but yes, I'm also eager to know about what the future holds.
Looking foward to it.
This is awesome for sure, but I'd also like to hear some specifics about the future.
