Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (WFRP) takes you back to the Old World. Get the gang together, create your (anti)heroes, and set off to make your way through the vile corruption, scheming plotters and terrifying creatures intent on destruction. Prepare yourself for the struggle of the gutter, to fight for your survival, and to face corruption on all sides. Prepare yourself for danger, as lethal threats are everywhere, and you can’t face them alone. And, most of all, prepare yourself for the grim and perilous adventure of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay!
The fourth edition of the original dark fantasy roleplaying game, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay takes you back to the world where Chaos never sleeps. Drawing inspiration from the legendary early publications of the grimdark RPG, WFRP brings innovative twists to build on the beloved classic.
WFRP provides a deep, flexible system that allows for fast paced combat without sacrificing detail. Armour covers specific hit locations only, and devastating critical hits can leave arteries severed, fingers mangled, and heads flying… A single roll system lets you know if you have hit, and how much damage you’ve achieved, with just one throw of the dice. The Advantage system lets you gain the upper hand against outmatched opponents, quickly bringing combat to a thrilling and satisfying conclusion.
Skill tests are quick and straightforward, with an intuitive percentile system giving you a quick pass/fail answer to Simple Tests. Dramatic and Opposed Tests allow you to test the degree of your success or failure, and compare that to an opponent to see which of you is victorious and by how much.
Magic in the Old World is pure, distilled Chaos, and it is an ever perilous pursuit. While the Channelling system allows a Wizard to gather their power for a devastating onslaught, all those who wield the Winds of Magic must remain wary of a Miscast that can result in unpredictable, bizarre, and potentially deadly effects.
