Let The Galaxy BURN!
|||||Faith No More-Epic||]|
I recently purchased the new Warhammer FRP. I like it for the most part, but what's annoying me most about the new game is they're going the way of AD&D 2nd, 3rd, 3.5, etc with bringing out tons of supplements.
Here are my likes/dislikes of the new game.
WIZARDS OF THE COAST DID NOT GET THEIR HANDS ON IT!!!!
Art work on every page (all around the borders of the pages as well as good pics for the classes, etc.)
What happens when magic goes *BOINK*
They included all the wizard classes from the 1st ed. supplement
They included more slayer classes from the 1st ed. Dwarfs supplement
They included more gods for the non human races (elves & dwarves anyways)
New classes specifically for race as well as country of origin
It's all based on d10 or percentage
Insanity is improved
Having to buy supplements (probably lots of them)
Spells and lack thereof
The lacking beastiary (new supplement out now)
100 exp=5% now instead of 10%
Focuses mostly on The Empire (probably yet even more supplements to find out more about other places like Norsca, Kislev, Worlds Edge Mountains, etc.)
They have specific classes for certain countries of origin (non Empire) and therefore see above
I didn't notice much of a history of the world (ie. how the dark powers entered the world, etc....probably yet another supplement)
Have I mentioned my disdain for lots of supplements?
Overall, it's not a bad game. I am VERY glad Wizards did not get their hands on it and I am also glad they kept the game very similar to 1st Edition.
