Hey everyone,

I wanted to map out where all the supplements are in conjunction to the city of Mordheim.

If you have any maps or timelines (As I know names and places change depending on era) I'd love to see them!

I thought I should ask before I go along plotting out the locations as I want to evolve my current gaming groups campaign into a more open ended RPG with an unending progression.

But I'll save that for another post!

The reason I asked this question is;

I own a poster of this map (from an old collection of warhammer rulebooks) [http://nexusx.wanadooadsl.net/ayudas/Warhammer_World_Map.jpg] And It is from here that I can see the majority of territories... However, there is no Mordheim! Any thoughts?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mordheim

Very Happy You won't find Mordheim on many "current" maps:

Quote :
The game is set in the Imperial Year 1999-2000, some 500 years before the present day in the Warhammer Fantasy time line.

Quote :
After the Great War against Chaos, Magnus the Pious razed the remaining ruins, and had the name of Mordheim stricken from every history record available.

This fan-made map has it's location marked though:

Thank you!

That link was so useful as if you rip out the Ostermark_v2.jpg, you can find the root listing of all these other awesome maps as well!

So the next question is.

What other Games Workshop products have existed before the year 2500?

I love the creative license available to the Mordheim era, but I want to know more!

No games, as far as I know.
They have published some novels set in Sigmar's time.

Damn Warhammer's vague history for the time period.

Ezekiel, do you have of the said books?

Well I have a bunch of books, but it's just the regular army books I was talking about... (I have HE, DE, Lizards, Empire, VC, Dwarfs, Bretonnia, O&G (not too much history there) You can find quite some stuff out in there, but the Lustrian races and Dwarfs all use different timelines.. so that's not too easy...
