Can’t put it down, can you? You know what’s in here. You’ve seen them. The twisted ones, the arrogant ones, the lost ones. Oh, you’d like to walk away and life be all cake and daisies, but you know you’re going here instead. You’ll try to convince yourself it’s because you’re greedy for the loot, or can’t resist a fight, but we all know the truth. So ready your sword, clean your pistol, and watch out for that dog – he might be small but he’s unreasonably vicious.

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay takes you back to the Old World. Get the gang together, create your (anti)heroes, and set off to make your way through the vile corruption, scheming plotters and terrifying creatures intent on destruction.

The Fourth Edition Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Rulebook contains everything you need for grim and perilous roleplaying adventures in the Old World.

Does this game work well with miniatures?
Customer avatar

I think it works better with miniatures, especially because of becoming engaged in melee combat is a big deal and there is also a outnumbering rule that might be difficult to do with theater of the mind

Please update the WFRP Rulebook PDF with the Errata.pdf corrections so we can download a complete version. You'll save so many of us PDF users so much time flipping back and forth checking on updates. It'll only take you a few hours to complete and will have a better PDF product for years to come.

Agreed. Also, while you're at it a bit more optimization on the pdf would help. It's not bad, but sometimes the pages take more time to render than some much more graphics-heavy rpg books I use. Thanks!

Yeah, providing errata but not actually incorporating it into the product is pretty lame.

Sadly this will likely never happen. Incorporating errata requires re-formatting pages, updating indices, etc. I’ve asked this same question about other RPGs and manuals and have always gotten the same responses. It seems like it should be a simple adjustment of in-place text but if that text happens to change a column length or push something else into the next page or an art piece or figure no longer works in its new position then the entire book needs to be re-assessed. It can be done but when it is it is usually called a new edition due to the amount of time and work required.
If this were not a pdf and the rules were more in the form of a Wiki (similar to DnD Beyond for DnD 5e) then updating errata would be super simple and done as it arises.

Sure, but there was a preview version. I get the amount of work involved. I could see if it pushed something to the next page etc. The suggestion I offered as a compromise was to maybe have the text highlighted in some way to show that there is errata or make a hyperlink in the text. Could they add the errata to the end of the PDF and have the link jump there or show up as a tooltip? I really don't know if any of that is possible. I don't need a perfect new copy. . just some way to know something is off while referencing it.

I think the PDF price is good but there was a LOT of errata IMO. Maybe I can annotate the PDF myself somehow? I have not used them a lot in the past but I am likely to do most of my gaming online now. My 1st edition rules are full of stickies :)

Fingers crossed for something.

Purchased PDF and physical copy.
The book is gorgeous, but the art, even if depict the WarHammer world, seems bland and generic. The book if choked full of drawings... they just are not inspiring.
Run of the mill fantasy stuff. That is a pity.
Character generation: Elf, again, got a lot of stats bonuses. The books promises that all races are equalised by other factors: I.e. famous Fate points and resolution.
That feels cheap.
I'm not a fan in smashing characters to make use their fate points. I never did it with 1st edition, and I'll not do it now.
The XP given by accepting dice fate, during creation, are a brilliant idea, but seems not really balanced. In the end, you can end up with some crap slave, instead of a noble, for what, a +5%?
Again, not worth it.
Careers: I like all careers have 4 levels, but the way they are presented, with those symbols, just make nonsense. Other than that, there is something lacking about description and drawings that is not very evocative....See more

The symbols make perfect sense to me, black crosses can be upgraded first level, bronze hammers second level, silver skull third level and gold shield 4th level
Customer avatar
Nicholas M November 22, 2018 8:00 pm UTC
The different symbols are to differentiate the levels for folks who happen to be colorblind - an early preview just had crosses on all four levels with just the colors to show what level is what. I'm digging the book quite a bit, and can't wait to get my hardback in december!
(Note: I got my PDF through the Bits & Mortar program by pre-paying at my FLGS, so it doesn't show me as a purchaser here on DTRPG.)

Some valid points here - although I feel the setting won't really come 'alive' until we start seeing what they do with adventures and campaigns. I felt the same with the 1st edition in some ways, until The Enemy Within campaign kicked into gear.

That said, things like using symbols can sometimes might just take a bit of getting used to, and are fine in the long term. I agree that they could have put more emphasis on giving more XP bonuses in character generation, as ultimately they could act as a greater balance against things like Elves' stats (which have a very slim chance of being rolled randomly as a character race).

On the whole, however, I think I actually prefer the 2nd edition's approach towards streamlining the game rules, rather than the slightly more crunchy 4th edition rules. I'm not really sure I want to have each skill listed as it's own percentile scores, for example, rather than simply having everything based on the one gridline of stats as previous. I've yet to really...See more

Just put "1st", "2nd", "3rd", "4th", in the box to tell the player the career level you need to buy that increase.
This is not rocket science.
I have strong feel that they tried to make the book more "warhammery", but ended up looking cheap along be not intuitive.
Is not deal breaking, but I need an effort to remember what symbol is what.

For the drawings: I've have the 1st vs 2nd vs 4th edition nooks side by side, and hands down, the 1st edition set the mood of the campaign starting from the cover.
Those "rough", black and white drawings have something so powerful, somehow disturbing, that you look at those and think: damn I need to play this game now!

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.
