Pretty pictures in your head

So, we've been trying to upload a picture so we could write about it for your blogging edification and delight- sadly, there seems to be some problem putting pictures up at the moment.

Thusly we've stripped out some of the old pics from the Blog (hope you don't mind) and decided to have another crack at it later.

That doesn't mean you have to go without your weekly dose of WFRP trivia however- it just means we'll have to be a little DIY about it.

So stop reading this and go and get your WFRP rule book. If you haven't got one, then what are you doing reading this? You've obviously surfed in here at random and haven't got a clue what we're talking about. That or your simply haven't got round to ordering one from our marvellous webstore (plug plug)

Anyway, got your paws on the book? Good, so see the characters on the front cover? See the bald headed guy with the hammer? That's Jurgen Heim. We were going to talk about him because we feel guilty.

Yeah, guilty- see if you look at all the WFRP books you'll notice these characters turn up quite alot. Except for Jurgen. It breaks down like this:

Old World Bestiary- Urrel Two axe (the Dwarf)and Otto Enbarr (the Wizard) vs a Wyvern
Ashes of Middenheim- Urrel and Gorge von Ostwald (bearded guy) vs Skaven, with Kera of Ostermark and Jurgen in the background (and even then Jurgen's on the spine)
Spires of Altdorf- Otto solo against Crimson skull cultists
Forges of Nuln- Urrel and Kera against an undead thing
Barony of the Damned- Kera vs swamp creatures- or possibly Mousillon peasantry (it's a blurry line between the two)

So we were thinking maybe Jurgen should get some more coverage somewhere- question is, on what? He's an interesting character- and we've got a heap of backstory for him-the thing is, where do we best use his talents? hmmm. Take a read and join us in the pondering.

Jurgen was dedicated to Sigmar upon the day he was born. A shrivelled bundle upon a doorstep he was found, and taken in by an Abbess of a Learned Order. He was soon taught to copy scripture, but over time it became clear no matter how patient the teacher, Jurgen could not read. He could draw the shapes, yet they meant nothing to him. In this small community, folk who should have known better began to whisper- what sort of being authored this fatherless child? Why was he unable to read holy text?

Soon Jurgen left. He fled to the army, and the tutelage of the Warrior Priests. His prodigious memory made him excellent at learning the blessings of battle and rites of the fallen. Rough soldiers did not care if he signed for his pay with an ‘X’. He grew strong and skilled, fighting for Sigmar and Empire. When the Storm of Chaos came, he did his part upon the field of battle, yet his heart turned from this bloody work. When all he knew had fallen, he fled to the Catacombs of Middenheim to shelter from the war.

Jurgen wears armour typical of his priestly sect. His bronze hammer is of Dwarf make, with the sigil of the holy comet etched upon its sides. Clasped to his belt are several prayer inscriptions, which he has copied out from memory. These are written in ink blessed by the Grand Theoginist himself. When times are hard, Jurgen sells these scrolls as protective charms. He also possesses a book gifted to him upon his initiation. He has no idea what secrets this holds.

Are you bet basketball plagued by Stuck Tune Syndrome? Do you have a song stuck in your head you just can't get out? Take heart friend, for your sportsbook suffering is over. The Maimograph Machine, through complex analysis and calculation, will find an even catchier tune to counter-act the one you already have. "Where's Your Head At?" is a song by the band Basement Jaxx from their second album Rooty. march madness This house song was recorded circa 2001 and relies on a sample from Gary Numan's "M.E." and "This Wreckage". The song peaked at #39 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, the band's only charting single on a non-dance music chart in the United States.
