Warhammer Fantasy Role Play: Tribes and Tribulations


A Guide to Brutal Warlords, Warbands, and Monsters in Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 

Tribe and Tribulations Logo over scene of Orc fort

Orcs and Goblins infest the wild corners of the Old World and beyond. They are creatures bound by a common ancestry, a love of bloodshed and violence, and the unifying spirit of the Waaagh! Orcs and Goblins are the perfect antagonists for any game of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. Tribes and Tribulations provides details on a number of these belligerent and spiteful creatures: Goblins, Orcs, Black Orcs, Hobgoblins, and Snotlings, as well as sections on Ogres and Trolls. Each specific tribe receives its own chapter, demonstrating the variety of Orc and Goblin warbands that plague the Old World and beyond.

  • The Cluster-Eye Tribe: The Terrors of the Drakwald, a band of Forest Goblins hungry for captives
  • The Broken Nose Tribe: Notorious breakers of several Dwarf Holds and incorrigible looters of artillery
  • The Black Mountain Boyz: A vicious band of Orcs accomplished in the arts of banditry and extortion
  • The Stone Snakes: Savage Orcs engaged in an ongoing campaign against the depredations of Chaos Dwarfs
  • The Wolfboyz of Oglah Khan: A band of Hobgoblin scouts for hire, with a pronounced reputation for treachery
  • Matthogg’s Payswords: A brutal group of mercenary Ogres currently located in the wilds of Ostermark
  • Trolls in Various Forms: The various forms taken by these ferocious monsters and insights into their behaviour
  • Waaagh! Magic: The shamanic practices of Orc and Goblin magic users and the spells they employ
  • Orc and Goblin Nemeses: A guide to mighty Orc and Goblin foes, notorious Warlords, and monsters

Orcs and Goblins provide a GM with classic antagonists for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, and Tribes and Tribulations offers all the tools needed to provide such creatures with the strategies and personalities required to make them memorable and challenging enemies.

This is a great resource, no question, but there were three omissions:

1) a Greenskin settlement or city, like one of the minor captured Dwarf holds.

2) No rules for goblin fanatics.

3) How in Sigmar's name are there no stats for Grimgor Ironhide? I'll need those at some point, and while there are homebrews, I like having the official sources where possible.

Hopefully those can be added elsewhere. Those quibbles aside, this book has been a great help. I hope to see more like it for other races.

The tribal distribution map on page 7 is very difficult to read some of the tribal and place names.
I would like a more accurate map of tribal distribution than the map of Altdorf and the Empire.

Does anyone know how I can add this to my cart? This is the first time I’ve tried to buy anything since DTRPG changed their website and dammed it if can get it to work. How do I add this product to my cart?

Are there any rules and tools to create greenskins playable characters ?

Could someone, for example someone who bought this, answer the above question?

Unfortunately I fear that this is yet another missed opportunity from Cubicle 7 for WHRFP, and this is merely a themed beastiary.

The short answer is no. There are templates for creating Greenskin NPCs (at least more complicated NPCs than the ones present in the Core Rulebook). These are meant to serve as fleshed out enemies. I don't think it would be too difficult to homebrew a greenskin PC (Goblin or Orc) with what's provided for creating NPCs. It would take more work and creation on behalf of the player/DM than if they made an official template. I was honestly surprised I didn't see one.

That is too bad. A missed opportunity if there ever was one. It is downright miraculous how much they work to limit player options. 1st Editon Realm of Chaos have usmpalyable Chaos includong Beastmen and even champions up to Demon Princes, the next option came only at the final times of 2nd edition with playable Skaven. After that nothing and it seems 4th ed is not eager to deliver any more options.

Panu that's a pretty unfair statement- 4e added back in Gnomes, but they've also added in Ogres (never been there before officially) and Lizardmen. I have 2e as well and I'd have loved for the playable races you mentioned (Heck- Even Night's Dark Masters has a playable Vampire race) but we gotta give them credit where they have done things.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
