Is there any plan to add half-elves ever?

At this time, there aren't but we'll pass along the desire for half-elves to our production team.

Page 93. Torch and Waterskin have been added to the

General Gear table. Trail Rations (1 day) have been add-
ed to the Foor & Drink table.

Shouldn't it read Food & Drink table

What is the rule set on this? D20?

Based on the Easy Mode read I've done, it's an original system with a d10 base. Similar to d20, but with d10's instead and some variation that isn't present in the d20 system.

This is not a d20 ruleset. Witcher, like the Cyberpunk RPG, uses the Interlock system which is at its core 1d10+Stat+Skill.

Wish there was a preview that showed the TOC, that would save me typing this comment & waiting for a response...
I'm wondering if a purchaser or publisher could confirm whether the Dryad is included in this book as a player race?

witcher, human, elf, and dwarf.

As Matthew noted. The playable races are humans, elves, and dwarfs. Witchers are their own unique race due to the mutagens and training they go through as children. Halflings are added in the Lords and Lands expansion.

Thanks for the replies. I have a group that's intent on playing a party of Scoia'tael commandos harboring in Brokilon, with a couple of Dryads among them. TBH I was only looking to buy the PDF to use as a source for an adaptation to another RPG, but was hoping for a Dryad PC race to use as a template. Is there a Dryad detailed in the bestiary chapter?
Customer avatar
R. Talsorian Games, Inc. C January 14, 2020 3:45 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
There isn't. Dryads are not a creature we've touched yet but might in the future.

Thanks for letting me know. The PDF will cost me about $33 CDN, which for me is a bit steep for a PDF I'm only going to source for an adaption. I'm going to hold off for now with the hope that it'll eventually go on sale. So here's hoping that by the time that occurs the Dryad will have been covered in a companion or supplement.

I bought the book at GenCon. Do you have a free PDF for those who bought the physical copy?

Hello! We do not offer a physical copy+PDF combination deal for the Witcher core rulebook.

Where can I get the physical version of this book, or, at least, wasn't there a print on demand at some point?
Thanks!!

Heh, can anyone shed any light of the 'Heh' leitmotif? Is it a reference to something within the novels or the computer games?
Customer avatar
Brandon M August 02, 2019 3:46 am UTC
'Heh' represents a sort of brief laugh/chuckle. It's just the way the Dwarves and some Skelligers talk in the world of the Witcher.

I guess that goes some way to explaining why they're a dying race :-)

Is there any chance at all of getting a generic Fantasy RPG based on your d10 system?
Or is this easily adaptable?

Can someone elaborate on the world details? I'm more interested in this book as a source book for other systems than for the system and core mechanics. How much map and detail about the setting are included?

decent basic worldbuilding info on the major countries, religions, etc. the maps aren't really anything you couldn't find online (they're based on the maps that are seen in the games, which are in turn based on fan-made maps).

Some questions. Maybe we need another sage answer.

Potions. Herbalist (Doctor profession) can create potion +3 to Ref (+3 to Reflex for 10 rounds), and witchers have Blizzard potion (+4 Reflex after killing an enemy). It is look like a lack of balance.

Improviser (Craftsmen profession) can make silver coated weapons. Such weapons are more powerful than witcher’s “silver” blades because they can cut human and monsters with the same effectively. Even artifacts can‘t do so!

Witcher ability “Frenzy” look like very odd. Witcher can deal a ton of damage and run away. In my game witcher deal 1d6 damage for every 2 points in Frenzy, so +5d6 max. And witcher have such bonus until poison wears off. Am I right?

Fiend should have Spell Casting Skill.

Runes. Perun is useless if you don't use optional rule (adrenaline).

Poison. Assassins can coat a blade with poison for 1d10 rounds. For my opinion poison effect...See more

I commend the author for making the book, but it does need some polishing and some continuity corrections. As for the fiend, I gave it Spell Casting at +8. I'm making my own bestiary until an expansion becomes available, because the book simply lacks the variety of the video games and I don't want my players to constantly run into nothing but nekkers and ghouls.

I also found that the stats for the mounts, horses, warhorses, etc, don't match the stats listed in transportation. When they list weights, I'm assuming that is what they can carry (in addition to a rider or pulling a cart) because a horse weights far more than 100kg. Some of those numbers corresponded with the encumbrance of the animal in their bestiary entry, so since I was redoing the bestiary anyway, I revised them to match the numbers listed in the transportation section.

I'd still like to know about the armor enhancements as a set, per my question below. It doesn't seem to make since to me.

Also, I find it...See more

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.
