NOTE: there is a new edition of Warlock available with an updated look and layout!


https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/383512/Warlock-Traitors-Edition


If you are new to Warlock!, we suggest buying that version. However, the latest PDF file of this edition of Warlock! has also been updated with the minor rules changes of the new version, so both editions are identical in terms of rules (v1.1).

warlock 2

Note: The book is mainly black and white with a small amount of colour, however the premium colour option has is available for the print version as it uses high quality paper with an improved look and feel. The black and white version has identical content, without the very minor colour component.

Customer comments:

‘looks very cool. Reminds me of that other game – battle hammer....war mallet....whatever. Also the old "choose your path" adventure books.’

‘This is a fantastic hybrid of Fighting Fantasy and WFRP 1st ed., both extremely nostalgic for me. Cracking little game and easy to hack!’

‘I really like some of the design decisions you made. Every game should have your rule: “any situation not covered in the rules, roll a D6.” Career choices are great, every skill for everybody is fascinating, and going statless is bold. Everything is old school and dead simple. Can’t wait to run the game.’

Have read through the pdf while waiting for the hardback and am well impressed with the English OS feel of FF and WFRP. Myself and 3 friends have constructed characters and are ready to start a GM Emulator driven scenario.
HAVE one question...on the character sheet there is mention of' 'Career advances mare:' and provision for 'Low max. level' and 'High max level' but for the life of us we cannot work out what these tick boxes are for.
Any suggestions please.

put a diagonal line in the box if the skill is the lower max level, X the box if it's higher max level. It's just a quick reminder as to how high the skill can be based on your current profession. so, for example, a career with skills of 12/10 skills that can go to 12 get X the 10 skills get just a diagonal line.

This is a neat little book. the magical fumble table (you roll 1 on D20) when you cast is really good. Just the right balance of bad without ruining the game experience from thereafter. Your eyes become black pits for 2d6 days. The caster becomes stiff like a statue for 1d3 days. Casters hands catch fire. Perfect. Other games go too far - your arm becomes a tentacle, your flesh becomes cadaverous etc. thereby precluding most normal non combat play.

Hi! Does it support the long-term play of the original wfrp? I love the slow paced advancement for "grim and perilous" campaigns! Thanks!

I'm a publisher, so I'm not allowed to leave a review. I want to say how much I enjoyed reading this and I can't wait for the compendiums. I recommend using the equipment/gear/weapons rules from Hypertellurians. I am shocked at how cleanly that transpose from that game to this.

Our table loves Warlock! how it really captures the nostalgia of those early British tabletop games, but we’re all disappointed that you went with the d20 resolution (too reminiscent of D&D) and would have preferred sticking to the 2d6 resolution so iconic of the fighting fantasy system.

There is something I can't understand in the system of this rpg: how can you do a simple strength check? What skill do you use?

Very interested in this, big fan of Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play and Fighting Fantasy. Any chance there will be a Warlock! Compendium III with more careers? Like to see Hedge-Knight, Questing-Knight, Templar, Witch Hunter and a Warrior Priest.

FYI, the bookmarks for the Careers and Skill chapter don't go to the right pages.

I'm also unclear on how this works: "You also gain a 'career skill' at a level equal to an average of all the skills the career grants (rounded up) as described on page 20". The calculation isn't explained on page 20 and all the careers have the same number of skills on offer at the same max levels and the same beginning amount (10).

Hi, those levels (10 and 12) are the maximum skill levels for the career, not the starting levels. You pick the starting levels as explained on page 15. You then average the levels you have in the five skills to get your career skill. Make sense? I’ll check the bookmarks thanks.

Sorry, it was entirely my misunderstanding. I was trying to work out how 10 skill points over 5 skills would come out with any other average than 2, but missed the fact that the beginning skills from page 10 would also be counted, if any are spent on skills listed under the career. My mistake.

I can't post a review here, because I'm a creator, but I did post one in my blog:

https://artifactsandrelics.blogspot.com/2020/11/its-time-to-write-more-reviews-because.html

I really love this game. I've been using it to run Deep Carbon Observatory, converted to these rules. It's not perfect, but the imperfections are easily remedied, and they are also part of the charm.

The main thing I would change about the rules is how magic works. It's just a bit too punitive. The Stamina cost for spells makes them very expensive to cast. Even though there are several combat-oriented spells, they are all worse value propositions than a sword swing. I've decided to add a Willpower trait as an analog to Stamina. That trait can also be affected by stress and magical effects. Even with that, magic is fairly low-key.

Also, it would be nice to have rules for movement, falling and poison, but it's surprising how easy it is to work around their absence. The latter two can be expressed...See more

Format
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.
