Ruinous Reactions


The booming voice of the foreman turns your bowels to ice. The cackle of the hedgewise makes your palms itch. The screetch of…something, deep in the forest, makes you thank Sigmar that you’re not on duty tonight.

Unofficial Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition Supplement.

Add To Cart

Ruinous Reactions is an unofficial fan supplement for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition, which overhauls the standard fear, terror, and insanity rules from the base game. This is intended to treat these issues more respectfully, and with more focus on how they manifest in the real world, with an interest to increasing player agency during these tense moments, rather than removing it. The system is general enough that, with little effort, it could be converted to any roleplaying game.

Inside you’ll find

  • An elegant overhaul of fear and terror, simplifying the two into a single Test,
  • More realistic reactions to stress, based on the Fight-or-Flight, Freeze, and Tend-or-Befriend psychological responses,
  • A system to model expected behaviours, so your character will develop habits, rather than just random reactions,
  • And a more respectful method of creating insanity which reward roleplaying and interestingly affect gameplay, but not at the expense of mentally atypical folks.
