Some thoughts on the info so far

Post by AdolphusAltdorfer on Thu May 24, 2018 2:31 am

Given the snippets of information that we have so far my take is that we will be getting a slightly revised second edition.

This should sit well with the fans of first and second edition, although I have seen some posters express wishes for more experimentation and new takes. But we got that in spades with the third edition and that backfired with many old hands, so I firmly believe that Cubicle 7 will not take any such chances with this edition.

The next preview will be about combat. I hope we will get to know how the pc profiles look, and what statistics are used in the game.

Also at the moment I believe that the 320 page total of the core book is a result of taking WFRP second edition rulebook (259 pages) and adding The Old World Bestiary (131 pages). That makes 390 pages, but shave off the fluff section and we're down to 54 pages of beasts, and then we land at 309 pages. We can remove 9 pages of beasts from the core rulebook, and that would give about 20 pages extra for fluff if C7 wanted to add some of that to the rulebook. So give or take some info here and there and hey presto, 320 pages.

We could also be looking at a combination of the second edition rulebook (259 pages), The Old World Bestiary (131 pages) and Sigmar's Heirs (131 pages). Cut out the beasts (9 pages) and the info on the empire (14 pages) from the rulebook, add in the GM section of OWB and then add a slightly edited SH, you could land close to 320 pages.

The first one (core + OWB) seems the simplest. The second one (core + OWB + SH) is what I would have done.

Any chance to GM 'TEW' is all the prompting I need to buy 4ed.

C7 would have to have really dropped the ball for me not to buy Warhammer 4e.

I'm waiting on a little more information (and money) before I buy. But I have to say it would be unlikely for me not to get it. 1st and 2nd edition were games of choice for old groups I played with.

So what do we think of the last few previews on Stats, Combat and Careers?

I know that at Gencon there will be games of the new WFRP run. We should have a lot of information in 3 weeks.

I'd like more info on what's actually in the starter set - for e.g. how much of the actual main rules you get.

Aye, I don't think you'll get the map/scenario in the core book. Nor the full fluff and more advanced mechanics in the starter set.
