Behind the screens

We've been feeling a bit guilty about the blog of late. Like a Christmas puppy, it's been a bit neglected- so, we decided to come up with some top rate sneak peeks to jazz it up a little.

Some time ago we mentioned on the forum that we've been developing some bits and peices in house. We've had the proofs for these babies in now, so we snuck out of our office and did a little photoshoot.

Here you can see Owen modelling our lovely GM's screen. As you can see the front of it has the map of the Empire in the center, flanked by two sepia tone scenes. It's about a WFRP rule book high, and four wide. It appears a little rickety as its a proof, but the final thing will be on hard board- like the cover of a hardback book.

Here's the GM's eye view- tables galore. From critical hits to random NPC names, weapons, talents, actions and more, you'll be rolling up 'Rain of Blood' before you can blink.

Our other favourite critial hits include 'Right in the Scruttocks' and 'Marienburg Headache'. Somehow the names say it all...

So, we've also been developing a new character sheet- something a little more detailed than the standard peice of paper. We've come up with this- the character folio. In bag friendly A5 (About the size of a normal character sheet folded over) it's got a study gloss cover- just like the WFRP companion- and 24 pages of glorious detail. Starting with your character's personal heraldry and ending with a record of what killed you, it's designed to be a fitting memorial to your PC. Here you can see Kate with a copy, and a shot of the internals. You can get an idea of size from the WFRP rule book it's resting on (as opposed to the diminuitive Flack)

So, hope you like the pictures, we'll update you with more soon!
