Howdy guys and gals! I was curious as to how many people play Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying? Specifically 2nd edition…
I have plans undeerway to create campaigns/sessions/character generation charts/classes/equipment/lores of magic/background info and such like for a Chaos Dwarf themed WHFRP and wondered what the interest would be like.
snowblizz: I already know about Tome of Corruption, thanks Was partly where a lot of thoughts about information would stem from. However, I’ve been unable to get hold of an affordable copy for quite some time. There’s also a lot of information/stats in the Old World Bestiary, which I do have.
Shakhorth: Well, feel free to use it when I’m done

I happened to be re-reading the book and had just gone through that section when I saw this so thought I'd mention.
If you want I could do a write up of the salient points of what there is.
Shouldn't be too much. And if it is, PM me and I'll figure something out...
Not a problem, just gotta be clear. Don’t wanna get in trouble However, you may be a point of reference to help on said project.
As a matter of course, anyone that fancies helping out or pitching thoughts/ideas/comments, feel free to do so - after all, it’s for you, so may as well be what you want (Names will also be mentioned.)
From what I can tell, 2nd edition is very similar to third, but a bit more streamlined and with three or four stats pushed into a single stat. 3rd edition is where things went a completely different direction and priced most people out.
Well I own all versions of warhammer RPG and all of 'em got their own personal charm.
To me the 1st edition still speaks more to the gothic aspect of the warhammer world. But the 2nd edition system is just better balanced (magic comes to mind). While the 3rd has a very nice combo system for physical fighter classes.
I like WFRP. I did a bunch of fanrules for runes back in the day. 1st Ed. is a bit of a joy for its old-school flavor, but 2nd Ed. just had some of the most beautiful books. The Old World Bestiary is just a joy.
Nico: I agree that the FF stuff seems to be such a huge sink to fix a problem that wasn’t broken in any way. Potential to start up a Skype campaign? A story for another time, when this is all made up ^^
Shakhoth: I came in too late for 1st edition and can’t be bothered to dish out the dough for 3rd, lol
Ancient History: May be something I look at to include, although more likely to be transferred into daemon-binding and there are offical rune rules already.
Tarrakk Blackhand: Something I may be able to address after this endeavour
