Grim and Perilous
Coop over at the Fighting Fantasist blog just posted an interesting and thought-provoking piece about WFRP and the development of the “grim and perilous” Warhammer ethos. He makes some very astute observations based on the way WFRP developed from the rulebook through the early Enemy Within adventures, and ventures some guesses about how that happened.
Some of his thoughts are spot-on – disturbingly so at times – and others are well-reasoned but a little wide of the mark. I added my own two penn’orth, including some memories about how things happened and who did what (and why) in the early weeks and months of WFRP’s life.
Anyway, it’s a good read, thoughtful and well-informed – so stop reading this and go and check it out!
