A friend gave me a short scenario called "The Mausoleum of Ifram", subtitled "Part 2 of the Quest of Chaos". It consists in a folded A4 page. I didn't find interesting information about it.
It seems to be for WH (Warhammer Fantasy Battle I guess).

Anyone here knows something about this module? Released date, author, publisher?

Thanks!

Can you upload some pics?  I've never heard of it, so that likely puts it at WFB 6th edition or newer.

He said he got it in the late 80's, start 90's. So it should be from this era (88-89, since it is when he bought RPGs before to stop collecting).

Here is the scan of the 1st page:

The typeface is that of the 1st 1983 edition of Warhammer, but the only "Warriors of Chaos" I can find is a much later book.

I'm guessing "Part 1" is the one found in the boxed set?

I recently sold a boxed set with about a dozen look leaf products in it along with the three books. Some were clearly adverts for citadel and whatnot, but this looks familiar and in keeping.

The boxed set went to TFM, and in light of the amount of such boxed sets that come up on eBay, I imagine it was bought for the loose leaf sheets.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

.
From what I recall, Realm of Chaos was a four leaf adventure with three printed sides and a map on the back fourth side.

This is reminding me of something, but I can't quite place it.  I'll take a look at my old WFB stuff tonight.

This one is similar. 3 of the 4 pages are printed with text, and there is a map on the 4th page (hand drawn map).
I looked in my WH boxed set (color cover 1984 ed.) and there is only a small introducting scenario in the Combat book.

@TheHistorian: I will be very interested if you can find more information in your WFB stuff .

I tried to find something about the Warriors of Chaos boxed set but it seems to contain only miniatures...

Theory a: Warriors of Chaos was vaporware in the mid-80s, much like Realms of Chaos. That is, it's something they didn't get around to publishing until many years later. Realms of Chaos is discussed in mid-80s WH publications using present tense, as if they expected its debut to be right around the corner. Maybe they were similarly confident regarding Warriors of Chaos, enough so to produce what you have. If so, I would expect its contents to have interesting bits regarding early evolution of the Chaosâ„¢ theme.

Theory b: It's a supplement to The Caverns of Draconis.

I looked through all my old material and I don't see anything that matches up.  My best guess would be that this does indeed reference the Warriors Of Chaos box set: http://www.solegends.com/citboxes/c2s1chaosw.htm  Maybe it had a brief scenario as an insert?  Maybe talk to the miniatures experts?

This makes sense, as brief scenario inserts along with boxed sets of minis. I was able to locate a much later book by the name Warriors Of Chaos, hence my previous theory that it was vaporware in the 80s.

Yes, you're probably right.  I tried to find information about a scenario included in this boxed set but didn't find anything. Do you know a miniature specialists website?


sauromatian wrote:Maybe they were similarly confident regarding Warriors of Chaos, enough so to produce what you have.


So, you think about an unpublished material? Warriors of Chaos boxed set would have been started but never ended? And they published only a book?
Anyone have it to look through it?

Maybe here  http://www.collecting-citadel-miniature ... /Main_Page and the yahoo group connected to it.

Realms Of Chaos was a couple hardcovers and then a box set.  Warriors Of Chaos was a book only.  These were all much later.

The book I mentioned is much later than the 80s. So far, the best info we seem to have discovered on this thread is the page TheHistorian found, http://www.solegends.com/citboxes/c2s1chaosw.htm

The scan itself (an 80s set of WH minis) doesn't mention W'oC, but the web page does, in the upper left-hand corner. So we have an intriguing clue, but no authentic, primary-source data, as yet.

The reason I speculate about unpublished vaporware is because of 1984's Citadel Compendium. This volume pretty much explains how the future of WH would look: a sci-fi version, a Chaos supplement, etc.. However, they write about these things as is they would be published soon. In reality, it took years & decades to do so.

Thanks for your help. I will try to find more information on miniature website and ask to some WHF fans.
If the "Quest for Chaos" was included in the Warriors of Chaos boxed set, I don't understand why they did not mentionned it anywhere :/
And I am still puzzled as to the origin of Mausoleum of Ifram :(
