Current revision

A Warhammer Fantasy Role Play, 2nd edition Campaign in the Border Princedoms

Year

Shall the effect of this good lesson keep,
As watchman to my heart. But, good my brother,
Do not, as some ungracious pastors do,
Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven;
Whiles, like a puff'd and reckless libertine,
Himself the primrose path of dalliance treads,
And recks not his own rede.
Hamlet, Act I, Scene III

The Storm of Chaos has washed over the Empire, devastating it's northern provinces. And while Chaos has been stopped for now, Tens of Thousands of refugees have fled to the south, seeking any form of haven.

In a coaching inn near the southern borders of the Empire, a small collection of ragged individuals will meet. Little do they know that the are about to set their foot on the Primrose Path.
