Warhammer Trinkets

I post a fair bit at the FFG forum for various games, mostly Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (3rd Edition).

I was asked a while ago to show some of the things I use in my Warhammer game, so here they are.

Here is a shot of the business card holder I use for the various wound, disease etc. decks, and the craft holders (they all fit together in stack) for the counters used instead of chits for Stress and Fatigue, Fortune Points.  

In the back is a flyer display holder from a business supply store, currently with an image from the priest book (also in earlier edition) that I am using as the image of a monastery of Sigmar for an adventure.

I place different sorts of images in the holders as visuals, depending on the adventure.

You can see the large size chart paper sheet underneath it for sketching things like a map of the Teufel upriver of Ubersreik, the route to the monastery.

This adventure is a "murder mystery", the players will be encouraged to write any notes they want directly on the paper to make it easy for them to note anything they want.

This is the other side of the table facing players.  The holder here has options drawn from the hardback rules for more freeform universal effects from boons, banes, chaos stars and comets.

I have them on display to encourage creativity by players.

There is also a home made oversize "action card" that summarizes the First Aid skill.

The round chits at bottom are range markers.  Below the range label is the manoeuvre cost to get close and above to move further away.

Finally here is an image of "my side" of the table.  You can see a Full Night's Rest summary in action card format, standups I will be using and the stack of action cards for the NPC's.  For particular NPC's there are with the NPC card and a yellow sticky fastened to display underneath allows noting current ACE budget for the "card NPC".

I use the d6's to keep track of the number of henchmen in groups or sometimes to assign events randomly.

I will post some images of "event/encounter" cards sometime soon.

WFRP Setup
Nice setup, I´ll try to du the same and share some pics, always fun to see how others go about things like GM Screen and table-setup.

Love the card holder idea. Brilliant. Found one of your posts on the FFG WFRP board and followed your link here. I picked up the 3e rulebooks last summer and having been looking for a local campaign to join but there doesn't appear to be much of an audience for the game. So now I'm boning up on the rules with the idea of trying to assemble a playgroup that would meet at a local game store.
I'm an old d&d 2e DM and despite that experience these rules don't lend themselves to ease of learning.

Learning game
The organization of rules is a bit messy indeed, but at their core they're simple. I found the finicky stuff is working out use of recharge actions in narrative time (spam healing) which the hardbacks address and which is explained on the ffg boards a few times.

Interested to see other folk's set ups etc. as well.
