I'm at my pub's Christmas Party with Rach at the moment and realized I forgot to put up the Tavern Chat reminder post. Well, here it is.

New (Old) Release - Shadows Over Bögenhafen: The Enemy Within Part 1 (WFRP 1e)

Consider me happy as a pig in shit. Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1e is getting some love.

Now, back in the early days of roleplaying, we didn't have easy access to photocopiers and scanners. If there were player handouts that you intended to use, you literally cut them out of the book. Which is what I did with Shadows Over Bögenhafen The Enemy Within Part 1. Not a problem with a PDF. Just print out what you need.

This is a really clean scan of the original. There are bookmarks, but they are only for chapter headings, not the sub sections. No watermarking either.

Shadows Over Bögenhafen The Enemy Within Part 1 is $9.99 in PDF. I feel like I'm in high school again. Thanks Cubicle 7 ;)
Geography of the Empire is bookmarked, but The Forests is not

Last night Frog God Games updated the Tome of Horrors: Reborn for Fifth Edition Kickstarter with a spreadsheet covering all of the current monster / creature entries for the new book. The damn spreadsheet is 10 pages long - heh.

Here's the first page:

You can read the update here or grab the spreadsheet directly from here.

I know some Tavern readers were looking for this info.

Putting Together a List of Swords & Wizardry Light / Continual Light Releases - Add Yours in the Comments

Next weekend will be the two month anniversary of the release of Swords & Wizardry Continual Light. Swords & Wizardry Light released at Gamehole Con in November of 2016.

I know there have been a number of releases and blog postings with support material, variant rules and adventures for SWL / SWCL. I'm looking to put together a page to highlight all that material and I need your help.

In the comments below please add the releases that you know of (with links if possible) I'd like to get this together before the week is out.

Game on! :)

New Release / Mini Review - The Manor, Issue #9 (Swords & Wizardry Light)

I've been subscribing to +Gothridge Manor / Tim Shorts The Manor since the first issue. I've used bits and pieces in my campaigns over the years. Its really good stuff.

The Manor #9 isn't just good stuff. Its awesome stuff, and I'm not just saying that because its an issue dedicated to Swords & Wizardry Light. I'm saying it because it simply is true.

First we get 4 god specific take on the Cleric class. While only cover through 3rd level (or 4th, depending on how you look at it) its easy to extrapolate the full seven levels for Swords & Wizardry Continual Light. Well thought and and inspirational for others that might want to do similar for their own campaigns.

Next up is a listing and defining of new monster traits. Monster traits are what makes monsters different from each other and this is a damn solid list. Tim, I'll be stealing this.

Then we get the table set - well, random table that is - with detailed encounters. I've already got this pegged for use in my SWCL game that is restarting in January at the Farmingdale Library out on Long Island.

Last but certainly not least, Tim gives us the Crooked Man Tavern. Its a tavern meant to be placed in a local dungeon and its oozing with atmosphere. Besides, I'm partial to Taverns. Now, how do I place this in Barrowmaze for next month's festivities? ;)

Yes, it was a long wait for the current issue of The Manor but it was well worth the wait.

Five Tavern Steins for The Manor, Issue #9 (and no short pours either). The Manor #9 is $2.50 in PDF from RPGNow and $7 for print from Tim direct (Gothridge Manor)

(did I mention the art i by +Denis McCarthy ? more awesome ;)

Yes, that's an affiliate link above. Help keep the lights on and the taps flowing here at The Tavern. Thank you.
