Not sure about 2nd edition, but in 1st edition WFRP, elf player characters were assumed to be wood elves living among humans in the empire, and so had similar careers to those of humans. I believe some later WFRP books introduced some (wood) elf-specific classes like Wardancers or Waywatchers or similar.Steelwind wrote: ↑Wed Oct 18, 2017 10:33 amAllow me to rephrase my question, do you lovely folks foresee it being possible to play a White Lion, a Bright Wizard, a Dwarven Slayer, and the other classic archetypes and unique staples of the Warhammer Fantasy Old World (even if you dont necessarily begin the game as them)? Were these available in 1E or 2E?
Specifically I have one friend who is a huge fan of White Lions, and if you can play a White Lion this will be an instabuy for him.
Dwarves could become (or even start as) Troll Slayers and advance to Giant Slayers.
1st edition WFRP was before Bright Wizards were named in the Warhammer lore, but one of the basic Academic classes was Wizard's Apprentice, from which a player could eventually become a level 4 Wizard, Demonologist, Illusionist, Elementalist or Necromancer. This was revamped and greatly expanded on in the magic supplement that came out in the early 2000s, but I am not very familiar with that book.
