WFRP: Hirelings of the Old World


WFRP Hirelings of the Old World

Four ‘Honest’ Hirelings for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay

The Old World is steeped in threat. Death can be found in the unnatural creatures circling at the edge of civilisation, in the whims of a cold hearted noble, or at the blade of a desperate thief. Few can make it alone, and there is no shame in spending good coin for good help. Even the most competent band of adventurers can find themselves in need of a specialist’s help.

Enter the Hirelings, useful folks who know their skills are in demand, and who are happy to accept coin in return for service. Of course few people who choose to make a living in this way come without some kind of baggage, and one must always be wary of loyalty purchased with coin...

Hirelings of the Old World includes four unique hirelings, each with their own set of skills, their own demands for payment, and detailed background and plot hooks to draw the Characters into their lives. Of course, taking on the concerns of another can bring troubles all of their own...

Hirelings of the Old World includes:

  • Luhrghur ‘Lantern’Angryfist: An Ogre Mercenary with a proven record of accomplished and brutal service, and a particular taste for Beastmen. For the right price, Lantern boasts, he can put on a fabulous magic act — in particular he excels at making people disappear. 

  • Lirwen Amberbloom: A Wood Elf Spy who found the insights of the criminal underworld to be far more useful than the waffle of courtly gossipers, Lirwen excels at gathering information. Whether local gossip or a detailed profile on a mark, the Wood Elf excels at providing insights — for a price.

  • Henrietta ‘Corny’ Cornflower: A Halfling intent on climbing the rungs of the Empire’s social ladder, Corny left her humility behind her when she departed the Mootland. Still, her observations into the upper echelons of the Empire are insightful, and for the right price she can provide access to the sort of places that some Characters would be tossed out from in an instant.

  • Angela the Red: A human Hunter of notable skill, Angela serves as Master of the Hunt to Lord Hans Taalhoffer, though her lord allows her leeway in providing services to others. She is an excellent guide and trapper, but has little need for coin. She demands payment by way of favour, and the favours she requests can quickly grow in scope. 

The rules for Hirelings found in Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay provide a basic guide for hired help. These four detailed NPCs provide both a detailed ally as well as adventure ideas that are perfect to drop into an ongoing campaign or to serve as the seed of entirely new adventures.

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.
