Wrath & Glory: Core Rules

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$29.99

Roleplaying in the Grim Darkness of the 41st Millennium

This accursed Age needs heroes more than ever before. Shattered by the Great Rift, the galaxy is on the brink of oblivion and madness. There are those who fight for a shred of hope, a glimmering promise that this millennium may yet endure.

What will you fight for? What will you sacrifice? Enter a galaxy full of danger and mystery, plagued by the star-spanning schemes of the Dark Gods. You will defend the last bastions of civilization against a rising tide of corruption. You will explore ancient ruins of races long-vanished.

You will uncover lost secrets and devious schemes. This is a game of danger and mystery. This is a game of action and adventure. This is a game about the struggle to hold back the doomsday clock from striking midnight for an entire galaxy.

This is your story of wrath and glory.

This game had so much potential. I bought it against the hope that it wouldnt be what I thought it was and I found that I was wrong. It was worse. The feel of it seems like the tragic love child of D&D 3ed and a Star Wars game with a Dice pool mechanic. The problem is they decided to name they mechanics these cute unique names which are otherwise called thins like "successes" and they have an annoyingly complicated mechanic for what nearly every other sane games calls Degree of Merit or essentially you rolled much better than you need to thus good things happen. All told this game is a dumpster fire of trying to hard to be unique while failing utterly to capture the feel of 40k.

No, the Core Rules don't have a sample adventure. If you want to give it a try, we have Burnt Offerings with some rules, pregenerated characters and an adventure for Wrath & Glory.

Added. However, there seems to be some issue with the DTRPG full-size preview system at the moment. When that is corrected, it should work.

It says watermarked pdf does that mean all the pages have a big watermark over them if i buy it?

DriveThruRPG puts a digital watermark on the product when you buy it. This displays your customer name and order number in small print in the lower corner of each page. It's very unobtrusive, but it identifies the PDF as yours.

Bought this yesterday and really liking it so far.

Only thing slightly disappointing is a lack of support for Tau PCs. Despite my personal preference for them, I could understand if they couldn't fit everything in the core book. But it just seems a little odd since the book specifically suggests using Tau as a convenient excuse for a multi-species party. Not that you couldn't have Gue'vesa without a Tau present, but still.

The below review is not questionable and the fact they mention FFG Dark Heresy lets me know they like FFG system.
Both Deathwatch and Dark Heresy were unbalanced. It often came down to looking for weapons that did more and more damage. This rules set doesn’t do that as much.

I wish I could leave a review on this game, because this ruleset is awful. Unpolished and poor glossary, not intuitive, and incredibly unbalanced. Tier 2 psykers will definitely have Gout of Flame and ruin your entire Tier 2 game (does more damage than a heavy flamer, in fact close to an assault cannon, will blast or large blast, and will automatically set the enemy on fire from which they will take significant mortal damage, require a willpower test to act, and action spent making a an Agility test to try to put themselves out). This power is one of the cheapest and most easily available psyk powers in the system, and is even better than other pyromancy powers which allow the target to save. This should kill almost any Tier 2 enemy in the game, even a Mob of Ork Nobz. The penalty for that attack? If used unbound the psykers upper limit Perils might make him re roll 1s and 6s on one of the dice.

This is just one of many problems with the system, such as the fact that Weapon Skill (melee fighting)...See more

I plan to run a game where the party starts as Hive Gangers and work their way up in the eyes of the chaos gods. Granting them the marks of Chaos from the Daemon Gods (which grant in-game bonuses) and they push towards daemonhood. So my main questions are...

Are the rules and class templates in the core book for Heretic Astartes?
Are the benefits of each Daemon God (Tzeentch, Nurgle, Khorne, Slaanesh) explained with in-game mechanic terms?
Are there generic NPC profiles for the typical stuff you'd see on a tabletop 40K game? Space marine, Dreadnaught, Tyranid Gaunts, Ork Bikers, etc.
I have read on the Tier system, however, is there an xp system in place for character progression?

I would like to know the answer to the above questions before deciding to purchase the book. Thanks for any feedback you can provide.

Right now, Chaos Space Marines use the same templates as regular Astartes, but typically buy a Mark of Chaos, which are included. The other specific Keywords they get are also explained in this book. There may be more detailed rules for individualizing varieties of Chaos Space Marines in the future, but for now, this basic method does do what you're asking.
The Bestiary is very comprehensive - you'll find a lot of what you're looking for there.
And yes, there is xp-based progression for buying advancements. The Tier system is primarily used at the beginning of the game to set your Framework and (rarely) to change frameworks at major narrative points in your campaign.

Hope this helps!

For now, you're stuck with the errors. You should get a notice when they update the file again, and hopefully the next update will cover everything currently in the errata.

I'm not sure that's exactly what the OP was asking. To be clear - you should always be able to download the latest available version. Be sure to check the Updates section of your DriveThru account regularly.

Right....but are the corrections/errata that we can download from your site, Eric, incorporated into the PDF purchased here yet? My oft-itchy purchase finger has been ready to pick this up, but I'd prefer to get the it with the first meaningful set of errata incorporated first. -- thank you

The errata listed on the site is for the print version. Most if not all of them should be in the current PDF.

I love the game, but then why are the "Maximum Starting Talents" columns in the charts on pages 69, 80 and 193 still not fixed? And the "Max Psychic Powers" columns in the charts on pages 69/80/193 are still different from the one on page 346. Why isn't this fixed? Thx.

I saw that errata was released a few days ago, but does anyone know if the PDF here for purchase will be updated with those changes? Seems to still be the August 31st version.

It is updated in accordance with the Errata. As I understand it, the Errata's release was simply delayed.

Interesting. I almost want to say 'screenshot, or it didn't happen', as there are others posts here from 8/31 when the file was last updated saying (basically) that nothing was really changed. :) I loathe when PDFs are not updated, so I've been waiting on that to happen. Based on some of the reviews and feedback, I want to believe it's going to be cleaned up as they go vs. an extended separate doc of fixes to track. Thanks for the reply.

Since i don't have any forums to talk about this product, Am I to understand that the editing and formatting is atrocious. The Table Setup Confusing for building a Character. The Values are not calculated correctly in some places, while being unusable without major adjustment for Suggested Pre-Builds. Some Point Buys for Races and Archetypes are unusable for certain Tiers of Play?

I saw a few pages and noticed that the point buy for the Archetype and some of the races are at the bottom on the Left side of the Page while the rest of the stats for said subject is one the top of Right Side of the Page. How often does this happen? Also, if this happens a lot, why didn't they hire an Editor or Page designer?

Actually, is there a way to contact developers when issues like this come up? I feel like there should be since the printed edition hasn't come out yet. It would be best for the IP and the product if such minor things be fixed. Hell, I'd do it Pro Bono if it meant that it does well in the market

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.
