Hey all! anyone play the warhammer RPG? if so, is it any good? i know they just revised it and i skimmed through it at my local borders and it looked pretty interesting. what could you people tell me about it? any help is much appreciated!
i just bought the core book, gm pack, and character pack. trying to get ahold of bestiary also.
trying to get the guys i play 40k with to start the warhammer rpg. none of them were even aware of it, but they all play DnD.
so far from what ive read in the books its extremely different from DnD.
its career and not class based. each career has advances that you can take as you earn experience. once you max out a certain career then you can progress into a new related career. whenever you look at career info it has entry careers - you have to max out one of the entry careers to proceed to this one, and exit careers - careers that you can move to after maxing out this one.
kinda like the old star trek system, not that i ever played it o.O
i LOVE how you have a chance to go insane everytime you use magic, priests have the chance to face there gods wrath everytime they use magic.
everything is percentile based and you use d10 dice.
it all looks very different, hopefully its enjoyable. im a huge warhammer nut so i should like it
leave the moderating to the moderators
if pro is the opposite of con, does that mean progress is the opposite of congress?
well, thanks for the help. i dont know if im gonna get it though(no money now) but i like the sound of the percentile system, sounds like inquisitor, but in warhammer fantasy nstead of 40k.
I can only recommend to buy WFRP as soon as you have the money avalaible. I'm in Pen&Paper Roleplaying since 1987 and have a huge collection of several systems (some of them french and german) but WFRP (1st and 2nd) are still one of my favorites.
The whole class based system is in my opinion more realistic than the level-based systems. But this is also a question of preferences.
In any case. WFRP has influenced my own system a lot especially the vivid career-descriptions. And many other systems have learned from WFRP - even DnD :w00t:
And then there is still the background... One of the best ever written!

WFRP is immense. I think they changed the rules system recently haven't checked them out yet, I still play using the old system.
MY Rat catcher turned Pit Fighter character kicked ass.
Hello, new to the boards,
WFRP is awesome. Our group's played dnd for years, and still it confuses us, but WFRP's got a really good, streamlined, system that's quick to pick up (your stats are percentiles that you must roll under to succeed at a task; it's wonderfully simple).
The book's got lots of fluff in it too if you like that kind of thing, giving a nice look at each place in the empire since the storm of chaos. I hope to one day use the rules for WFRP to have a nasty little campaign set in the ruins of a certain damned city at the turn of the last millenium...
Oh I just got both volumes to Realm of Chaos quite recently so I might need to run somekind of online roleplay based around a chaos warband could be interesting on the other hand playing a group of choatic mad men might get a bit repetitive prehaps the PC's could be Templars/Witch hunters tracking them down?
sounds like fun, but you could run an intriguing chaos campaign. make it so everyone can chose which race you want to be.(human, Beastman, Minotaur, etc.) i dont know how it would balance out, but its possible. also to spice it up, you could make it so we have to fight against opposing factions of chaos, raid caravans, pillage villages, all that cool jazz! :w00t:
Dr Nick is running a Warhammer RPG with a possible opening for a member for a chaos warband.
