A classic WFRP adventure for 5 players
GM - Robin
A jewel set in the festering, mist shrouded wasteland of the accursed flat north, Marienburg is the richest, largest. most corrupt and dangerous sea port in the Old World. A seething mass of people, all races and creeds, leeching off the rich lifeblood of the continent as bounty and cargo from across the world comes in through the Sea of Claws and on up the Reik into the gluttonous belly of the Empire.
A city with a knife-edge existence, eyed jealously by the King of Brettonia and The Emperor alike, Marienburg's wealth buys it mercenary protection and its Burgher's perform a diplomatic dance playing power against power to ensure their independence, and the unchallenged flow of wealth into their hands. But whether out of the storm torn sea or the foetid, menacing swamps that surround her, threatening hands and more sinister, misshapen digits, ever reach for Marienburg's exotic, tainted heart.
It's a playground for the richest and a lure for the poor, desperate and savagely criminal. All pleasures and perversions, stimulations and distractions can be purchased here, for a price. But beware where and with which dogs you sleep, or you may wake up with far worse than a splitting head, a churning stomach and an infestation of fleas.
