Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay First Edition Core Rulebook

ADD TO WISHLIST >
PDF
$9.99

Fully OCR'd, bookmarked and cleaned up to look amazing, the first edition of the seminal Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay comes to PDF!

We’ve painstakingly scanned every page, and created a PDF that maintains the appearance of the original. This does make for a slightly larger file than we’d normally produce, but on this occasion, we think it’s worth it for all the great First Edition feel! The PDF is also extensively bookmarked for ease of reference.

We released a version earlier in the year via Humble Bundle that did not have the colour plates of the Games Workshop edition, but this new PDF does have all those glorious colour plates we know so well.

The PDF still needs a few tweaks to make it sympatico with the corrections article "A Fistful of Misprunts" from White Dwarf #92
Note: this isn't Cubicle 7's fault, for some reason the Hogshead version of WFRP (which they have PDF'd perfectly) didn't include these fixes.

p45: Skill list: insert skill "Sense Magical Alarm" as skill 105, renumber the rest accordingly.

p56: Insert between Seduction and Set Trap:
Sense Magical Alarm: Characters with this skill are able to sense when an object or area is protected by the Petty Magic Spell Magic Alarm. A successful Int test is necessary to sense the alarm, and the character must be within 2 yards of the protected area to detect the spell. Note that this skill does not permit characters to disarm the Magic Alarm.

p75: Armour & Encumbrance: change 'Toughness x 10' to '(Strength + Toughness) x 100'

p83: Gaining Insanity Points:
Critical Hits: change 'is forced to roll on the...See more

Also on Page 40 - Burglar should have skill 'Sense Magical Alarm' added ( as per rear of book career path summaries )

Do Dwarves have animosity to Elves in their Psychology write up?

In this PDF - yes.

This is a recreation of the Hogshead edition ( but Cubicle 7 have added into this PDF the colour plates from the first Games Workshop hardback version to make a "hybrid" book that never actually existed in the past ).

Hogshead only incorporated SOME ( but not all ) of the errata from the White Dwarf #92 errata article ( why they didn't fix everything I don't know ) so there are still some errors in this PDF which I have listed in the top message of this thread. Dwarfs having animosity to Elves is one error that WAS incorporated into the Hogshead version.

No actual physical book of WFRP 1st Edition was ever published in the past with ALL the corrections from White Dwarf #92 but I hope Cubicle 7 could do a few further amendments to this PDF of the missing errors to get a "perfect" WFRP 1st Edition rulebook.

Another error in the Hogshead edition ( i.e. this PDF ) is that for some strange reason Hogshead "broke" the Profile for an average human in the Bestiary chapter on page 222. They overwrote it with the Halfling Profile on the previous page.

It should read like the original Games Workshop Hardback page 222 version:

M:4, WS:33, BS:25, S:3, T:3, W:7, I:30, A:1, Dex:29, Ld:29, Int:29, Cl:29, WP:29, Fel:29

Snagged! Hopefully this will slow the gradual disintegration of my original GW hardback.

My Dwarf Trollslayer from college weeps with joy and plants large, psychotic kisses on Cubicle 7's crew. Except the chicks, cuz that would be sexual harassment and then he would have to resign from Congress. BUT STILL...

Can he even reach? We'll stop there because this conversation feels like it could veer off the cliff of appropriate conduct at any moment. But we're very happy that your Trollslayer is happy, Christopher!

This is an excellent scan/reproduction which probably required quite a bit of work considering the quality of the paper of the original product and the use of a lot a greyscale in the printing.

Will C7 be releasing other WFRP 1st Edition products as PDFs in the future ( e.g. GM Screen and Reference Pack, or the Apocrypha expansions )?

Hi Anthony, Thanks! We're glad you like it! We will be releasing The Enemy Within Campaign in PDF, and we'll see what else we can put out after that!

Hi dennis, This version incorporates the Hogshead errata corrections, but otherwise is a glorious artifact of gaming history!

Hi Mark, This version incorporates the Hogshead errata corrections, but also includes the colour plates and page order (a very minor difference) from the Games Workshop edition.

We have also said that we're looking into the possibilities of providing an update via HB. Right now we're not sure if it's possible but if we can do it we will.

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.
