Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay First Edition - Death on the Reik The Enemy Within Part 2


“The time shall come when the enemies of Chaos shall relax their guard and pay no heed to the shadows at their backs. Then shall the Great Mutator cause the warped moon to awaken, and the beloved of Mórr shall spit upon the lands of The Empire. Where his spittle doth land, there shall the weak fear to tread, but the possessor of the spittle shall wield great power”
-Extract from Omens and Prophecies of the Seer Unserfrau

The mighty river Reik: the longest waterway in the whole of the Old World, stretching almost a thousand miles from its source in the Black Mountains to the sea at Marienburg. The Reik and its tributaries are the arteries of The Empire, flowing through the dark forest to link its great cities.

As the river flows untroubled to the sea, strange things are moving on its forested banks; and somewhere along its upper reaches a great evil festers and grows. It has lain dormant for over a century, but now a prophecy is fulfilled and an unimaginable horror has awoken in the hear of Sigmar’s Realm. And the horror is spreading.

The rot must be cut out before it is too late – but first it must be found…

Death on the Reik can be played as a stand-alone adventure, or as a part of The Enemy Within campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, continuing from Shadows over Bögenhafen.

A seemingly simple man-hunt turns out to be far more complex and dangerous, and adventurers will be pitted against mutants, Skaven, and desperate cultists before they discover the truth – and a climax which will plunge them into the midst of Chaos.

As well as an extended campaign adventure with 20 pages of maps and player handouts Death on the Reik features an appendix on the rivers of the Empire.

New rules for river navigation and trading are included, plus full details on the river boats of the Reik and the people who use them. There are extensive outlines of possible hazards, incidents and encounters, plus a fully developed, ready to play scenario, ‘The Maria Borger’.

This PDF reissues the Hogshead Publishing Edition of Death on the Reik book. 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.

This PDF includes the book, and a large format scan of the map included with the Hogshead edition. One side featuring Castle Wittgenstein, the other a large hex map of the Reikland.

Great to see Cubicle 7 involved in one of my favourite early years RPGs it all looks super slick. I’m sure this has been said before chaps but don’t put black edging around handouts and Maps.

Regarding the missing page 44. I contacted the publishers a week ago to make them aware of the missing page and they are going to check the files and get it corrected. Just keep checking the file last updated on the right hand column as that will tell you when its been done.

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.
