Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay

The world of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is an original setting for the Games Workshop wargame of the same name, but in many places it recalls and approaches historical periods of the real world, but enriched with fantastic elements. The Old World, in fact, is a continent very similar to Europe, whose kingdoms are reminiscent (by geographical position or by politics / society) of the real nations of European history.

The center of reference for role-playing is the Empire, located really in the center of the continent and clearly inspired by the Holy Roman Empire of the Germanic Renaissance nation. Kingdoms and neighboring states take up other inspirations, for example Bretonnia, a feudal kingdom clearly inspired by the works of the Arcturian Cycle, or Kislev, a cold northern kingdom that incorporates elements from the Russian Tsar.
