I really like the new design of the 2nd edition of WFRP. Compared with the 1st edition, all books have a similar format and size, regular titles and subtitles. The art works both within the pages and on the covers are stunning. The content is great but you also feel like having the whole “collection” in your bookshelves.

One of the great artists of WFRP is Ralph Horsley. He just starting posting in BI’s forum and gave 4 great links to his personal website where you can contemplate the full versions (larger image, no title or writing) of the following covers:

Realms of Sorcery
Tome of Salvation
Tome of Corruption
Thousand Thrones

I really like the left hand (hidden) side of most of them, since you can see some nice and expressive characters. For the occasion, I decided to change the top header of my blog. I might alternate once in a while. Great job Ralph!

The cover of The Thousand Thrones is now official and can be seen in Black Industries’ forthcoming products section. Rumors in BI forum talk of the men on the cover as being Sigmarian Flagellants. Part of this huge campaign would take place in Kislev and the other part in Marienburg. Make sense to me. This campaign will surely use content from the Realm of the Ice Queen and the Tome of Salvation.

I was supposed to write my next post about the Tome of Salvation, the next WFRP book to be released, but, as I was reading the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay forum, I stumbled upon a topic that made me change my mind. They were talking about a big forthcoming adventure called The Thousand Thrones.

So what do we know for sure? Well, that it will be an adventure of 256 pages (monochrome), the biggest ever released by Black Industries. In fact, it is a bit like putting the three parts of the Paths of the Damned campaign together when you think about it. Apart from that, no description, no images… on the official website!

The following picture is totally unofficial and comes from another website, but the art really fits what we have seen so far of WFRP books.

The Thousand Thrones

On this unofficial cover we can read the following subtitle: “An Epic campaign of lurking horror and intrigue”. That sounds exciting to me.

In the past, Black Industries has been releasing sourcebooks of a specific region of the Old World followed by an adventure set in the same region. They have done it when Lure of the Lich Lord came after Renegade Crowns or when Barony of the Damned came after Knights of the Grail. Since the sourbook on Kislev will be released just before, I have the feeling that some part of this big campaign will be set in this cold area.

Have any idea what we could expect? Please post a comment!
