Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is a new, exciting way to experience the popular Warhammer Fantasy setting. It is a grim world, constantly at war. As a hero, you will take up weapon, spell, or prayer and do your best to combat the might of enemies terrifying to behold. As the Game Master, you will make the lands of the Old World real as you craft the story, the people, creatures, and the mysteries the other players will encounter during their adventures.

Everything your group needs to begin its adventures in the Old World is included in the Core set. This Core set is an excellent way to bring new players into the fold, as well as to reward experienced roleplaying with new and exciting innovations.

4 comprehensive rule books provide all the knowledge you will need on the Old World
Over 30 Custom Dice give you unprecedented options for story-telling
Party sheets provide new skills and abilities to keep everyone engaged
30 different careers and 4 different races offer a multitude of character options
More than 300 cards keep you in the game, no need to look up skills or abilities
Three character keepers designed to hold everything your hero will need each session

I'm going to be getting this system for the club, who is up for trying it out?

Definitely. Looks good. Perfect setting for it too! Just need some cold winter evenings, a bottle of port, and some ripe cheddar!

Veldemere

Good, Seems like it's going to be very different from traditional RPG's combining cards, figures, dungeon layouts, all set in the best world we know...
Out end of October...

Veldemere

Also love port and ripe cheddar, so that sounds good too!

First Campaign book coming soon

"A storm on the Horizon"



Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of an exciting new campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay! In The Gathering Storm, the heroes find themselves caught up in a furious storm of events while visiting a backwater town in the middle of the Reikland. Ancient secrets threaten to stir a long dormant evil and rain doom upon the unsuspecting town of Stromdorf.

The Gathering Storm is a complete campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. The story centres around a series of bizarre events that bring the heroes face-to-face with dangerous enemies, moral dilemmas, and the raw fury of nature.

In addition to providing many sessions of exciting adventure, the campaign guide provides detailed information on the town of Stromdorf and a number of its odd citizens. Colourful maps bring Stromdorf and the surrounding region to life. This adventure also contains handouts, cards, components, and playing aids to help the GM manage the game.

The Gathering Storm has it all. Death. Misery. Peril. Suffering. Disaster. And that's just the weather.
