Tonight was the first real session of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. (2nd edition)
It was pretty laid back and mostly improvisational. I introduced a few plot hooks and threw in a few encounters meant to teach the basics of rolling Characteristics and Skills, plus a low impact barehanded fight to demonstrate combat.
Our heroes ended up in a bragging/storytelling contest, followed by a seedy pub crawl filled with gambling and backroom brawling. The session ended with almost everyone rolling on the Stinking Drunk table. Gotta love those super-heroic Warhammer types, eh?
I think I have a pretty interesting mix of characters, and I think this group plays well together. Our next session isn't for a couple of weeks, and I can't wait.
The campaign is semi-sandbox; I've sprinkled the town with rumors and I have a few potential hooks that can lead them far out of the present setting, as well as a a couple of self-contained scenarios to explore or ignore at their leisure.
It feels good to be running again.
