The final part of a classic Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Adventure is back, thanks to Cubicle 7. Come see The Enemy Within.

Cubicle 7, who will be publishing the newest edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying, have just concluded their run of the classic First Edition adventure: The Enemy Within. Starting with Shadows Over Bögenhafen and continuing through Death on the Reik, Power Behind the Throne, and now: Something Rotten in Kislev, you can now grab high-quality .pdfs of this entire adventure.

Hailed as one of the definitive guides to the Empire, this four-part adventure introduces players to the Empire, to the Old World, and sets them on an adventure as they seek out and destroy the heart of a demonic conspiracy, bringing them face to face with the corruption threatening the very foundations of their world.

Chaos. The Empire. Hobgoblins. Chaos Warriors. Puzzles. Townsfolk who are just as likely to be against you as helpful.

These adventures plunge you headfirst into the grim and perilous world of adventure that is Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying. Check it out.

Something Rotten in Kislev$9.99

Something is rotten in Kislev. Beastmen are raiding, killing and burning. The dead are walking the streets of remote cities, and entire colonies are rejecting the Tsar’s rule. But are these mysteries linked, and if so, how?

Sent by Graf Boris of Middenheim to ‘help’ the Tsar, the adventurers will find themselves contending not only with undead and beastmen but also with ghosts, elite Hobgoblin warriors, creatures of Chaos and strange nature-spirits – plus the Kislevites, who can be less than friendly, as well as puzzles, dilemmas and ominous curses to occupy their minds and keep them in trouble.

Something Rotten in Kislev contains three linked adventures that can be used separately, as a Kislev campaign, or as a part of ‘The Enemy Within’ series. The book also has full information on the nation of Kislev, its peoples, culture and its history, as well as local religion and spirit-worship. Also included are many hand-outs and maps, plus great art and six pre-generated PCs.


This PDF reissues the Hogshead Publishing Edition of Something Rotten in Kislev. 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 poster map included with the Hogshead edition. One side featuring a battle map, the other two locations from the adventures.

And that’s just Something Rotten in Kislev. The whole Enemy Within campaign is worth checking out. Whether for the influence it had on the stories of the old world, or just for a taste of that grim Howard-esque adventure that’s as full of death and dark magic and gold as it is heroes eager to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under their sandalled feet.

So whether you’ve got gigantic mirth, or gigantic melancholy, you should return to the Old World for one more campaign. At least until the new WFRP comes out, then go back again and again–that can’t come soon enough–but in the meantime, this will whet the appetite nicely.

For the Emperor!ire!
