PCs away from the Empire and previous plots. Indeed, it has been accused.
While I pondered what to use it for, my eye hit on the copy of The Enemy Within adventure, that has been sitting, unused on my shelves since about I loved the campaign, but was at best ambivalent about the system. Maybe now, I had a marriage made in heaven? A bit of frantic ebaying later, and I had a complete set of the campaign, down to the Hogshead edition of the Power Behind the Throne with the extra Carrion Up The Reik adventure.
Hint for anyone else contemplating this - you can often buy WFRP books from second hand sites such as Noble Knight Games or Second Chance Games for far less than they go for on eBay, even if you have to pay postage across the pond. So now I had the source material, and it was time to start converting!
I decided to make life difficult for myself by changing the world to be more of an Old World - Weyerth Hybrid; if you want to know the details they're on this page. This brought its own workload in conversion, but made the Old World feel much better to me.
At first, the hardest work was the background conversion. Partly due to its scope, and partly because the adventure used background elements I'd discarded. I can't comment on converting the last two parts of the campaign, since after long consideration, I decided to leave them out, and end the campaign after Power Behind the Throne.
Something Rotten in Kislev struck me as weak, and it was totally at odds with the revised background; and Empire in Flames seemed utterly linear, and worse, the PCs seemed to be largely irrelevant to the main events.
So I decided to revert to what may have been Games Workshop's original plan for the campaign, and end it in Middenheim. So was it worth the effort? Many thanks again to Derrick for sharing this.
Spoiler for Power Behind the Throne. My first task was to complete work on Power Behind the Throne. This meant proofing long galleys rolls of text with red ink corrections, walking up and down stairs carrying hardcopy to and from the typesetting team editing in those days required manual labour.
There is no creative element at this stage of the process, just making sure grammar, spelling, punctuation, and format is all correct.
One of my changes to PBT had been to add a concluding confrontation but, as no artwork had been commissioned, the final pages were text heavy. Phil Gallagher suggested we add a map to break up the text and help run the encounter or, just as likely, because we still had a spare page to fill.
Compared to working freelance these early months were much busier as I was working on multiple products in parallel, to different deadlines. Phil explained that RoS was not a GW priority in terms of using in-house writers, the cost would have been too much. Ken was a noted American games designer who, even at that time, had been working in the industry for some years so there was a feeling of anticipation about his involvement.
To the best of my recollection, the meeting began with Ken commenting on what he thought was good and not so good about WFRP.
This included options for developing RoS: Ken had significant knowledge about the approaches used in other games and I recall discussing in high-level terms the merits of using this or that system for WFRP.
Finally, we moved on to consider the next TEWC adventure and Ken outlined what could be done and what he had in mind. To my mind Ken was making a pitch as a potential freelancer which we would take away and consider as the potential client. I said as much and apologised if silence on my part had been seen as criticism.
