Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Fourth Edition

The Horned Rat Campaign and Companion Module


Warped whispers sound, a diabolical susurrus from the sewers and caverns below Middenheim. Something is stirring in those tunnels, and beyond — something sly, conniving, and strangely hairy, with vile plans for those that live on the surface. 

Mysteries abound in Middenheim in new Foundry module for The Horned Rat, the fourth volume of the revised and updated Director’s Cut of the Enemy Within Campaign, as a preponderance of plots come to light in the City of the White Wolf. The Characters must solve a new scintillating intrigue threatening the city, just as old enemies rear their ugly heads, all culminating in a dramatic showdown to foil a scheme to shatter the skies themselves. 

‘My Friends in Change, we have sown glorious chaos but to bring the Time of Changes we must act as one under a Champion In Shadows.’

The Horned Rat is the fourth volume of the revised and updated Director’s Cut of the Enemy Within, one of most highly regarded roleplaying campaigns ever written. Building on the dramatic events at the end of Power Behind the Throne, recruiting your brave heroes into the service of the city of Middenheim for more drama and intrigue.

In the penultimate volume of the five-part series of grim and perilous Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay adventures, the tables are turned as enemies that have pursued the Characters since the beginning of the epic campaign are forced to defend themselves. The time is right to uncover their schemes and break apart their organisation. The Characters cannot afford to relax their guard and celebrate their victories, as a new threat emerges from beneath their feet.


The Horned Rat Includes:

  • The fourth part of the Enemy Within campaign, conceived by legendary WFRP writer Graeme Davis with contributions by a team of talented WFRP writers.

  • A toolkit to exploring Middenheim’s complex undercity, a vast environment filled with hazards and intrigues.

  • A series of investigations dealing with the implications of the action in Power Behind the Throne and leading to the realisation of a new threat, far greater than anything the Characters have faced in their previous adventures.

  • Descriptions of an ongoing and deepening crisis in the Empire, to be resolved in the final installment of the Enemy Within campaign.


The Horned Rat Companion is the fourth of our five-part series of companion volumes to the Enemy Within campaign. It is packed with supplementary material to not only expand The Horned Rat but also support any WFRP games which feature the skulking Skaven as a foe.


The Horned Rat Companion Includes:

  • More lore and information on the Skaven, their history and society, and the terrible God to which they give praise.

  • A huge selection of new equipment, spells, weapons, and contraptions to outfit your Skaven NPCs with.

  • New encounters in the city of Middenheim and the Middle Mountains, perfect to drop into The Horned Rat, or any Skaven focused campaign.

  • A GM’s guide to The Yellow Fang, an insidious cult that both worships the Skaven and seeks to outdo them.

  • A new career, the Dwarf Ironbreak, perfect for a stout dwarf seeking to face down the loathsome ratmen in the tunnels beneath the Old World.

  • Two classic adventures, revised and updated for WFRP 4th Edition — Horror in the Dark, featuring a terrible encounter in a twisting mine, and A Little Help From My Friends, a kidnapping case beyond any but the greatest, shortest detective in all of Middenheim.

  • The Return of the Gravelord: Everyone’s favourite self-obsessed Necromancer returns to harry the Characters throughout the events of The Horned Rat. Is it paranoia if everyone really is out to get you?


This module contains:

  • 126 Actors featuring the vast Skaven hierarchy, from the deadly Warlock-Engineer to the pitiful Skavenslave to the horrific Brood Horror

  • 119 Journal Entries leading the adventurers to the uncover the deadly Skaven plots and machinations, as well as providing info on the multitudinous clans, their schemes, and their leaders

  • 107 Items providing a wide arsenal of dangerous Skaven technology and horrific spells, programmed with their unique effects

  • 18 Rollable Tables describing the deadly encounters the adventurers might face, or showing the destructive potential of Skaven tech mishaps

  • 8 Scenes that help visualize the encounters from the party's early investigations to the final desperate fight


The WFRP Core Module is required for full functionality and is to be used with the Warhammer Fantasy 4th Edition System
