Re: Harpies

They are listed under animals and monsters in first edition. Rudimentary intelligence, and viscious screeching creatures. No suggestion they can speak.

Re: Harpies

Having said that, in the WFRP2e Old World Bestiary, they're listed as being able to speak Dark Tongue, so depends what you want to use them for.

Re: Harpies

Warhammer 1E Book 1 says...

[Harpies] have limited intelligence and bestial cunning - as well as carniverous appetites. They make and use no tools and shun the company of intelligent creatures acting independently and to their own purposes.


Book 3 lists them as having the Hunger alignment:

Hunger Alignment is common amongst the less intelligent monster types - Hunger Aligned creatures have only one interest in life - Food


Warhammer 2E Bestiary says they have a "rudimentary intelligence".

I don't think they are great conversationalists, but supposed to be this kind of thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZVqFmVNobA

Re: Harpies

On this issue - I should clarify that Ray Harryhausens ability to write genre defining fantasy table top battle game rules sucks ;)

Re: Harpies
