|Notice of Near Abandonment 2012-08-06|
|To the four fans of this campaign thank you I and appreciate it. But as usual I take on a project knowing I’ll have to do it by myself and eventually get tired of doing it by myself seemingly for myself. When am I ever going to learn? If you haven’t been keeping up on Reckless Dice I’ll start putting up links to the audio files when they are released. We have had some doozies.
Thanks again maybe I’ll get some vigor and try to pick it up again down the line.
A new age is beginning. The winds of magic blow strongly, and the Old World’s two moons shine brightly in the night sky. Storms appear out of nowhere, and the land is rife with conflict. From the north descend savage groups of chaos marauders, men dedicated to the four Ruinous Powers of Chaos. They are seen side by side with degenerate beastmen and profane daemons. Their raids are striking further and further south, yet they are only the scouting forces.
Within, the lands of the Empire are besieged by Orcs and members of hidden cults. The Orcs delight in battle, and are laying waste to all they can find. The enemy within is rising up and striking vicious blows that mankind is unprepared to face. War is coming on all sides.
For every age, there are heroes willing to stand up and fight, or common folk for whom destiny has its own unseen plans. This age sees the arrival of many new warriors. Dwarfs, humans, high elves, and the enigmatic wood elves must set aside their differences to face the forces bent on destroying the Old World. Fortune favors the brave, and these heroes will need all the fortune they can muster.
Warhammer is notable for its “dark and gritty” background world, which features a culture similar in appearance to Early Modern Germany crossed with Tolkien’s Middle-earth. “Chaos” is central to the setting, as the forces of Chaos are attempting unceasingly to tear the mortal world asunder. The world itself is populated with a variety of races such as humans, high elves, dark elves, wood elves, dwarfs, undead, orcs, lizardmen, ogres, and other creatures familiar to many fantasy/role-playing settings.
