Empire In Ruins // Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play

The first of the books is Empire In Ruins which brings this mighty storyline to a close. You can get your hands on the book in PDF form either on its own OR by pre-ordering the physical edition from the folks at Cubicle 7. Here is what's within...

  • The fifth part of The Enemy Within campaign, conceived by legendary WFRP writer Graeme Davis with contributions by a team of talented WFRP writers.
  • The schemes of the Altdorf cell of the Purple Hand, whose plots place those of Karl-Heinz Wasmeier and the Middenheim cell in the shade.
  • The ambitions of a certain Magister Impedimentae, how they coincide with the grand designs of the Purple Hand, and how they diverge.
  • A culmination of controversies that have featured in adventures over the past few years. The true architect of the Ubersreik takeover, the rouser of Beastmen and mutants, the inspiration of Daemonologists and heretics, shall be revealed.
  • Memorable villains such as the Madcraw tribe, the Threshers, and the multifarious departments of the remaining Purple Hand.

As with the other releases for The Enemy Within, this book brings together the work of Graeme Davis alongside a talented team of new writers. They have worked to present the classic tale but also give it a few twists here and there for those who played the game back in the day.

A New WFRP Companion

Building on Empire In Ruins, we also have The Empire In Ruins Companion which gives you more to play around with as a storyteller and Games Master.

The Companions for each stage of The Enemy Within have thrown all manner of new options into the mix. They really are a great tool for those wanting to tell stories adjacent to The Enemy Within even if you're not following that story specifically...

  • Alternative Empires, features the ramifications of the fulfilment of the ambitions of Yann Zuntermein, Karl-Heinz Wasmeier, or the late Kastor Lieberung.
  • More Madcraw, the Night Goblins and their depredations return with more details on this extraordinary remote tribe, including several new tribe members that might trouble any adventurers who stray into their territory.
  • The Place of the Shining Rock, more details and fascinating lore on this sacred site holy to both Sigmar and Ulric, its storied past and geography.
  • Altdorf in Chaos, highlights the several unusual phenomena that could occur in the Crown of the Empire as the Enemy Within nears its thrilling climax.
  • The Imperial Ostlanders, who are these brave frontier folk, ably commanded by Reikhardt Mathis Sievers, and what part might they play in Empire in Ruins?
  • The Nordland Question, during the Turmoil that shakes the Empire, many provincial areas make a play for greatness at this time. Nordland’s history and notable personalities show rebellion was inevitable sooner or later.
  • The Siege of Diesdorf, under the looming threat of the Red Crown, can the Diesdorf Council keep their town in good order?
  • The Bigger They Are… An Ogre as a judicial champion means most trials are decided before they begin.
  • The Triumph of the Gravelord: Will the Gravelord (everyone’s favourite self-obsessed Necromancer) who has stalked the Characters since Death on the Reik, achieve supremacy?

An impressive chunk of new and reworked content that builds on an already fit-to-bursting setting.

I really like what Cubicle 7 has been doing with their edition of Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play. The new books have been well laid out, packed with details, stunning artwork and some nice nods to the editions of old. They really are a love letter to The Old World and Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play, a perfect way to dive into this grimdark setting.

Collector's Edition Options

If you like the idea of splurging a bit more of your hard-earned coin then you can also get yourself the Collector's Edition of this book (and all the books for The Enemy Within).

This combines the Empire In Ruins book with the Companion in a stunning silver foiled tome which has a lustrous Spot UV finish. On one side you see the mighty Sigmar battling the forces of The Changer Of Ways whilst on the other side The Empire burns.

As well as the contents of the books for you to digest you also get exclusive player handouts and maps. If you really, really like your Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play then this is certainly the fanciest way to show off your dedication to Sigmar.

We actually talked to Cubicle 7 about this very campaign in the video down below...

It was great talking to the minds behind the campaign and getting an insight into what they had planned. It's tough to update a classic but I think the folks at Cubicle 7 have done a darn good job.

Are you going to be snapping these books up?
