A Missing Coach, A Lost Package

An intro scenario for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is now online


Be wary when you set out from the relative safety of your smug home, outside the palisades and fences protecting your town. What lies outside those walls is cruel and unforgiving. The area between towns and cities is little more than a seething mass of anarchy, violence, bandits, and beastmen. If you’re lucky, you’ll run into one of them at a time.... If you’re not, the next Warden to fill your boots will hear the same warning.– Oscar Heilman, Roadwarden Captain. Excerpt from a lecture to newly appointed wardens.

Something is definitely wrong. Vaerun the High Elf Envoy is expecting an important package that was supposed to arrive on the last coach. Birgitta the Roadwarden’s partner Rutger was escorting the package. The coach, the package, and Rutger are all a day late...

A Day Late, a Shilling Short (pdf, 3.1 MB), the exciting introductory scenario that debuted as part of the recent Emperor’s Decree Pre-release Event, is now available for download under the "Resources" section the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay support page.

The short demo booklet is designed to make it easy for a first-time GM with access to the Core Set to set up, prepare, and run a short adventure for some friends. Though not playable without a copy of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, this sixteen-page pdf file conveys a grim and perilous world of strife. Check it out, and see the adventure that helped make the Emperor’s Decree Pre-release Event such a smashing success!

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.
