Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is a roleplaying game that sets unlikely heroes on the road to perilous adventure, in the grim setting of Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy world. Players will venture into the dark corners of the Empire, guided by luck and Fate, and challenge the threats that others cannot or will not face.
Im curious when we will actually see the player's guide.
Only one thing to say : WE. WANT. HALFINGS. NOW !!! ;-)
It's been a matter of time for the Player's Guide for a very long time. Why is the GM Guide and the Creature Guide out on PDF, and yet the Player's Guide isn't?
I am really pleased to see the GM Guide and now the Creature Guide out in PDF. It is just a matter of time for the Player's Guide. Please keep up the support for the PDF format!
Creature's Vault is a success. Creature is a fail. Too much page flipping and repeated information. As if designers wanted the book to be useless and the Vault needed.
This brings up my main complaint with moving creatures to components. This book does a really poor job of letting you know what actions go with which creatures, gone are the full page spreads from the ToA in favour of a glossary of action cards. I know they're trying to find a balance and personally I love the components but it's really annoying to have to flip back and forth when consdering the creature for an encounter. You literally have to read every action card to find the reccomended actions for the creature you're reading about every time.
On top of this, they haven't followed through in expansions. For instance, the Witch's Song has creature cards (yay!) but neglects to put the creatures stats and other cards in te book so if I'm reading the adventure I have no way to easily reference the components from the adventure.
As someone who owns the entire line (including a bunch of extra dice and card sleeves for all the components) it's a little frustrating to have such unorganized books. Sometimes I just want to take a book with me to read on the train or whatever and suddenly a new action or effect card will be mentioned and there's no where to look it up except the card itself.
You know, I was on the fence about getting the Guide at all. Been doing pretty well with just the Vault, even though I know I'm missing some stuff. So I'm glad to see this, and will probably pick it up. Good job, FFG. Have a cookie.
Is there a hard-copy version of this too (I hope)?
Yes, ffgfan have right.. I can't wait to, for some news about Black Fire Pass!!
I would rather see a annoucement of Black Fire Pass that this news. When will we see Black Fire Pass?
