Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay First Edition - Shadows Over Bögenhafen The Enemy Within Part 1


And at the appointed time we shall rise from our secret places and throw down the towns ans cities of the Empire. Our brethren shall pour forth from the forests to slay and burn. Chaos will cover the land and we, the chosen servants, shall be exalted in His eyes. Hail to Tzeench, Changer of the Ways – Njawrr’thakh ‘Lzimbarr Tzeentch!”
Excerpt from The Book of Transmutation

The Empire. Perhaps the greatest nation of the Old World, it has stood for two and a half millenia as a bulwark against the threat of Chaos. Down the ages – from the time of legen when Sigmar Heldenhammer ruled, to the peaceful days it now enjoys – the Empire has endured. Within its borders, the Emperor’s armies keep the peace. The Empire stands firm against the enemy without.

But what of The Enemy Within?

The Enemy Within: Shadows Over Bögenhafen
is the first volume in an epic campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay First Edition. It is the definitive guide to the mighty Empire of the War hammer Old World, full of background information covering the history, geography, politics and religions of the Empire, as well as invaluable material on starting and running the campaign.

And you can begin straight away with an intriguing and chilling adventure which introduces the players to the Empire, sets them on a hunt to seek out and destroy the heart of a demonic conspiracy, and brings them face to face with the corruption threatening the very foundations of their world.

This PDF combines material originally published separately as The Enemy Within and Shadows Over Bögenhafen, revised into a clear, easy to use format, as published in print in 1995 by Hogshead Publishing.  

We’ve painstakingly scanned every page, and created a PDF that maintains the appearance of the original. This does make for a slightly larger file than we’d normally produce, but on this occasion, we think it’s worth it for all the great First Edition feel! The PDF is also extensively bookmarked for ease of reference.

It is great to have this book available in a PDF. Unfortunately the final page of handouts is not scanned very well and is next to illegible in the PDF.

Is it compatible with the 4th edition?

No, it's the 1st edition version.

The whole Enemy Within campaign is being released in a 4th edition version with the first volume due out some point soon. That will include Shadows Over Bogenhafen, as well as Mistaken Identity.

Edit: of course you could make it compatible, it wouldn't be hugely difficult.

Oh nostalgia. Could NEVER get my hands on Power Behind The Throne, but had the hardbacks of all the other Enemy Within books by the time my TTWFRP group fell apart ca. 1990. Possible I got 'Kislev after that but couldn't swear to it. Momentary worries about alzheimer's looking at the publication dates given for the Hogshead, but the copyright info in the previews confirms there were editions '88-'90 when I remembered our group meeting and me devouring them even though I was running a Homebrew so everything was consistent if we carried on after the 'brew finished.

The PDF seems to be missing the map of Bogenhafen both the Players map and the GM's map. Should be on page 110 in the book.

Isn't there one before this? I had an old book that was called "The Enemy Within" I thought that was the first one.

I didn't pick this up yet, but it looks like it collects both The Enemy Within and Shadows Over Bogenhafen together in one volume. Not sure if everything from both books is there or not.

Any news on whether this will also come via POD?

I doubt it. They will probably be concentrating on the new version of Warhammer RPG.

We shall have to wait and see. However, there are plans for a doing a new, "Director's Cut" (with the original author Greame Davis returning) for the upcoming WFRP 4th Edition as an anniversary edition.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
