WFRP Rolls - Roadwardens and Drunken Mercenaries

Duncan Thomson

Armed priests of Sigmar stand in your way, singing a martial chant. Their leader, a tall woman, asks you how about dangers on the road ahead.

Generated from Warriors table below (roll of 5, a group of warrior priests) and the Warrior Complication Table (roll of 13, they stop to ask you about the road ahead)

On the Road - Armed and Dangerous

It's likely you will encounter many armed folks on the roads of the Old World. They might be the Roadwardens of the Empire, mercenaries from Tilea or grim-faced guards of a merchant's wagons.

These might be suspicious of the characters, worried about nearby dangers or a threat...
