Inspired by the suggestions that other members of the Oldhammer community have made regarding homebrew rules, I thought it would be a great suggestion to add a fantasy background to B.L.O.O.D, something fairly compatible with Warhammer Third Edition.
Looking around for inspiration, my mind was instantly filled with images of Middle Earth and the Warhammer World itself. Obviously, certain races would be required to fit out purposes in this world or background too. Elves (good and bad), humans, dwarfs (good and bad), halflings, goblins, orcs, ratmen, demons and undead will all need their place. But there is simply no point in copying these worlds. We need something of our own! An Oldhammer World!
Years ago I was an archaeologist and did some work about Doggerland and I felt that this ancient landmass was the perfect starting point for the Oldhammer world's shape.
With this basic shape in mind I whipped up a simple map that could be the basis for our background.
I haven't developed the idea very much, so please forgive the simplicity but two forces were my chief concern when drawing the map; the elves and 'chaos'. I have a few ideas for the full background and these key races are vital to it. Another important factor in a battle game is the armies access to each other and an inland sea would provide opportunity for any race to launch an amphibious assault on any other!
I'll have a go at writing up a historical narrative for our world. Good ideas are welcome!
