Yep, I hope I like the new system, but I really hope for new fluff and setting material that complements the existing stuff.
If Cubicle7 is able to create a new sandbox / plot point / non-railroady compaign that rivals the enemy within that would be brilliant.
As long as the new fluff / adventures / campaigns are kept relatively separate from the rules crunch I'll be happy.
Start writing ;)

A thread has opened up about the new WFRP on the Basic Roleplay Forum (essentially Chaosium games). I thought would repeat one of the posts here because it essentially summarises how I feel the game should be:

"I enjoyed WHFRP 1st Edition immensely.

WHFRP 2nd Edition did Magis better than 1st and was all in all more balanced - but they neutered in some point by making more "political correct" (What was wrong mit "von Krieglitz-Untermensch"?) and generelly a more streamlined background and rules system came with a notion of taking things too seriously. I liked the gritty and tacky feel of the 1st Edition.

WHFRP 3rd Edition was not my system at all (though I bought quite a lot of it anyways), being too fidgety and boardgamy with all the tokens and funny special dice that were quite expensive, too.

So, I am hoping that I can withstand the urge to by this edition (FAT chance at that!) but if WHEN I buy it I hope for something that simply leaves out 3rd and goes back to the gritty, wacky feel of the simpler 1st edition - with working magic rules and a kiss on the cheek and kick in the behind to game balance, PC and all the rest that made 2nd such a "serious" game but maintaining the deeper background 2nd provided.

Oh yes, and nix the "Storm of Chaos" and give me my Empire back that is threatenend from the outside but really rotting from within! And make it whacky: Make the Imperial Chancelor Gerhard Merkel, name the mayor of Betonnia's capital Macronne, give me a bombastic ass-headed Chaos-Knight Tonhald von Trumpf as a villain etc. THAT is MY Warhammer!"

Pretty much sums it up for me. I really hope that Cubicle 7 managed to hit that sweet spot mix of adventure, horror and humour that made first edition and The Enemy Within so loved.

Hi there,

Quick question; now that WFRP 2E is available on Drivethru again, is there a possibility that there will be a POD option in the future?

Well said the "imbalance" of 1ed was colourful in play, and fitted thematically with WFRP society & its inequality :ugeek:

Yeah, I did see that. And it kind of made me sad. I really like DH/DH2. And I was hoping Cubicle would pick it up again, and continue the line.

Excited to find out how the Old World is going to be interpreted in the new edition.

Probably due a sneak preview any minute now :)
