They say that 13 is an auspicious number, I hope so as I consider these to be the 13 best WFRP websites out there:
- Small but Vicious podcast – Will and Pat churn out the only podcast dedicated to WFRP on the Web, WFRP2 to be precise. It occasionally rambles and suffers from mediocre sound but it’s pertinent, refreshing and funny.
- MadAlfred's WFRP page -
the reference in terms of maps and gazetteers,
not to mention the author of numerous excellent adventures and
- Altdorf Correspondent -
perhaps the best WFRP blog which also contains an amazing wealth of
materiel, particularly his
map of the Empire's capital. While printing it is tricky and
expensive, it's is well worth it!
- Strike to Stun - home to probably the oldest and most active forum for WFRP.
- Winds of Chaos - slick presentation, clean design and original rules but updates appear fewer and further apart (NOooo!)
- Critical Hit - a once active hub for WFRP, now a rich archive of background material.
- Warpstone magazine -
home to the best fanzine for WFRP, well worth every penny.
Tragically now on its last issue <sniffle>. Now if only they'd
get round to publishing #30!
- Whymme's WFRP site - pretty site containing a hodge-podge of rule improvements.
- Hapimeses - website of Andrew Law, a freelance writer and WFRP fan => re-born as a blog under the banner of LawHammer. Now that he finally sold his house (his tale of woe is second only to "James Wallis burnt my boat" and James' response "Yes I sunk your barge") it'd be great if he could finish his OS map of the Empire!
- Liber Fanatica - source of probably the best fan-written supplements, ever.
- Black Spectrum Productions - combines the accuracy of MadAlfred's maps with wonderful artistry to create probably the best maps available.
- Kalevala Hammer -
a relative late-comer to the WFRP community, this site has more than
compensated with an unparalleled guide to the wild country of Norsca
and a welcome focus on the city of Nuln, as well as many other broad
- Bergsburg project - a unique resource: an entire city created, described & populated by fans. Highly recommended (it lives again thanks to our little green friends from the Snotling Foundation).
- Gitzman’s Gallery – a very slick site that hosts probably THE most comprehensive map of the Old World which not offers tremendous breath but also attention to detail and coherence with other map makers. It is also home to an equally impressive pod cast which although WFRP3 (not my cup of tea) makes for very good listening.
- The Daily Empire – while perhaps not as pretty as some, this blog remains one of the most active in the WFRP-shere. It also hosts many professionally-produced adventures and resources.
- The Song of Middenheim – undoubtedly the richest description of the city of the White Wolf. It hosts almost a hundred articles on all aspects of this citadel; history, geography, politics, etc. But be warned that much the materiel is based in 2592, i.e. 80 years after the official start of the TEW campaign...
- The Enemy Within podcast – at 120+ hours it is possibly the longest podcast that I’ve ever listened to but it covers what many consider to be the finest campaign ever published for WFRP and possibly one of the best campaigns ever published for any RPG. Sure the GM took many liberties with the campaign, but who doesn’t? Plus he and his group are hilarious... So if you enjoy it, please consider donating.
- Dave's Games - The Encroachment of Chaos used to host dozens of useful gaming aids (calendars, random trappings, weather generators) as well as character sheets and maps. Fortunately these resources were blown away to safer place by the Winds of Chaos just before they were replaced by a range of paper buildings for 15-30mm minis that, although fee-paying, are reasonably-priced given their high quality (very pretty, accurately depicts the architecture of WFRP's late medieval/early-Renaissance period as well as being easy to print and assemble).
- 2D6 Feet in a Random direction – despite its namesake, this podcast has little to do with WFRP per se but addresses RPGs in general. Put aside any prejudices about board gaming or even miniatures, these guys are brilliantly sharp and witty. One can easily forgive its unashamedly American perspective and increasingly intermittent releases...
- Realm of Chaos – a real trip down memory lane, this site offers a unique perspective on the art, miniatures & people behind White Dwarf, WFB and WFRP in the 80s. In fact it seems to have coined the term Oldhammer. Ah halcyon days...
- Small but vicious blog – a plain but interesting fansite with in-depth reviews and a few house-rules.
- WFRP First Edition Wiki – by far the best site to check 1st Ed rules. This Wiki aims at keeping the spirit of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1st Edition alive 30 years after it’s release. Over the years this FANDOM-powered monster has grown to 1300 pages, organised into 6 categories; Rules, Careers, Skills, Spells, Bestiary & Chaos.
