[Archive] Stone and Steel


I now have access to this legendary Dwarf book.

For those who don’t know what it is, it was produced by Hogshead Publishing Ltd back in 2002 on license by GW.  So its not ‘current’ or ‘100% official’, but pretty much every Dwarf player accepts it as so.

Anyhow, its a huge volume of info on absolutely everything dwarf related, from diets to population, cults, politics, clan structures, language runes etc.  Its a WHRP supplement.

If there is anything you want to know as inspiration for your own fluff, ask away!


Forgot to mention, although I have not read most of it there doesn’t appear to be anything new (or substantial) on CD, but I’ll write it anyway:

(p25)"The Dwarfs reserve a particular loathing for the corrupted Chaos Dwarfs, whom they call the Tainted (Khazalid: Frurndar).  Their existence is seen as a disgrace to the entire Dwarf race, and one which can only be expunged by the total extinction of the Chaos Dwarfs.  The savagery of the battles between the two races nearly reaches that of the Dwarf-Orc conflicts.  The few Chaos Dwarfs who survive long enough to be captured can only look forward to a lengthy interrogation before they are also killed."

Pretty serious stuff then!  Makes me want to convert a Chaos Dwarf Inquisitor to hunt down those pesky Dwarfs!


AFAICR the one for 1st edition WFRP right?


I don’t know if its for 1st Ed WHRP, as I don’t know when 2nd came out?

The book says First Edition: September 2002, so if that’s pre 2nd ed then (by cunning process of elimination), it must be 1st!

Your so lucky grims!! the book sounds cool.how hard was it to find?


Damn near impossible. I’ve been looking for about 3 years.
