    Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay: Empire in Ruins Reviewed on The Gaming Gang Dispatch #929

    Up to this point I've felt The Enemy Within campaign has been an excellent, epically scaled tale for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. I'm sorry to report the finale is a letdown. Whereas earlier volumes equally balanced the behind the scenes political maneuvering and scheming with plenty of action and adventure, this fifth chapter focuses far, far too much on talking heads carrying on while the player characters seemingly stand by and observe. It also doesn't help that the GM is presented with multiple minute by minute breakdowns of different events which feature way too many different NPCs. Speaking of NPCs we see the return of far too many from the previous adventures, thus watering down the impact of these returns. Lastly, I feel Empire in Ruins breaks one of the absolute cardinal rules of roleplaying games; never make your players feel as if they're just bystanders in their own adventures. Sadly, there's too much of that going in this chapter.
