One of the central themes to The Edge of Night Adventure for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay are the political machinations of several powerful and influential noble families. Recently, the townsfolk of Ubersreik have grown concerned over their beloved town losing its status as a friedstadt, as detailed in my previous designer diary. This designer diary delves into the political climate more, including a returning character the players may already be familiar with.
By the time a party of characters tackles The Edge of Night, they may have several adventures under their belts. The scenario provides a lot of great information for GMs to integrate these previous adventures into the storyline, and provide the party with a variety of motivations for their involvement. Several of these motivations are tied to the party’s potential participation in previous adventures – including background based on their involvement in Eye for an Eye or The Gathering Storm.
