What can you say about this adventure – Night of Blood is a quintessential intro adventure for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay – an old favourite from 1st edition times. It includes chaos mutants, demons, a spooky inn and attacks by beastmen on the road. What else could you want? To be fair it’s not overly involved or complex. It is quite a short adventure. But it has a wonderful charm, so it’s good to see it updated for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4th edition.
Cubicle 7 have released this with a series name of Old World Adventures. There haven’t been any more adventures yet in this series, but presumably they will be converting some of the other old 1st edition or maybe even 2nd or 3rd edition adventures for 4th edition. You can also get PDFs of 1st and 2nd edition adventures at DriveThruRPG – no sign of 3rd edition yet – so if you don’t mind converting yourself you can do that.
More from the publisher’s site:
Night of Blood is one of the most played WFRP scenarios of all time. It was originally written over thirty years ago by Jim Bambra for WFRP 1stedition, and was published in White Dwarf 87 in March 1987. Later, it was republished in the WFRP 1st edition supplement, The Restless Dead, and has been a firm fan favourite ever since.
It’s a dark, stormy night, and the forest creaks as foul creatures howl through the undergrowth. As freezing rain slices from the roiling sky and attack threatens from all sides, the desperate adventurers stumble upon the warm glow of a fortified inn. But everything isn’t as it seems, and soon the unwitting heroes face deceit, betrayal, and horror as they strive to survive a terrifying Night of Blood.
