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!

Black Industries just released their 6th preview of the Tome of Salvation, a few hours after I posted my “complete” preview of this forthcoming book. I will update the previous post this weekend, but I just wanted to say a few words about it now.

The sixth preview contains 3 pages of the Chapter 3 called “Folk Worship”. It covers more especially the “sacred signs and gestures” of the major cults of the Empire, some religious sayings and the beginning of the section on priest’s physical appearance.

You will learn in this preview that tattoos, scarification and even branding are shown or hidden by many priests, that “May Ranald favour you” is in fact a curse of Ranald’s follower and that two extended fingers, the sign of the devouts of Sigmar, mean two opposite things depending on where the palm is facing.

All warhammer fans are expecting the Tome of Salvation (Tos) and have it on their wish list. Everybody also know that it will be, in some way, the equivalent of the Realm of Sorcery, but for priests of the Old World. You might have check the six previews available so far on Black Industries’ website, maybe not. In any case, it is always nice to imagine and to think what we will find within those pages before the actual book comes out, so i decided to write an overview of what will be included in the 10 chapters. Chapters marked with an asterisk (*) have previews.

Chapter 1: A Brief History of the Cults of the Empire
As most of WFRP books, this one will start with a historical chapter on religion in the Empire and will include some adventure seeds for game masters.

As you have probably noticed, I took my blog’s header from the fantastic cover of the Tome of Salvation. The artwork is great and you can see even more of it by downloading the wallpaper from the Black Industries’ website. This sourcebook will be the equivalent of the Realms of Sorcery, but for all the priests of the Old World. In my next post, you will find a complete descriptive overview of this sourcebook.
