ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG Early Access Core Rules

Average Contribution $2.93

Do you like Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay? Then you're going to love this.

Create adventures with a system of gritty realism, clandestine conflict, political intrigue, vicious reprisal and supernatural horror with ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG.

As featured on and having raised over $61K on KickstarterZWEIHÄNDER is a tabletop role-playing game. In short, it is a bloodier, grimmer and grittier version of classic tabletop RPGs you may already familiar with. The community calls this style of gaming the “pathetic aesthetic”, but we simply call it grim & perilous gaming.

ZWEIHÄNDER is a low fantasy, percentile-based system, used to create and run adventures set in grim & perilous campaign worlds. Characters will be comprised of both strengths and flaws, beginning gameplay in one of 72 truly unique Professions. As gameplay begins, the Gamemaster will impose the peril of the wilds, heart-pumping chase scenes, social intrigue and terrifying enemies against you and your fellow adventurers. Dice are rolled to arbitrate success, failure and everything else in between. Over the course of the campaign, your Character may succumb to their injuries, go insane, fall victim to mutation, make Faustian bargains in exchange for infernal might or even worse.

This game includes everything you need to run a game of ZWEIHÄNDER; player's guide, GM's manual and the Bestiary, which includes over 120 perilous foes to pit your friends against!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
