3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting game, but in a largely empty box 29 Dec 2012
Format:Toy|Verified Purchase
I was surprised how empty the large box was, the rule books being held up by a folded cardboard 'filler' that I hoped had stuff underneath, but was disappointingly empty. However, there were lots of Career, Action, Talent, Disease cards, and huge quantities of tokens for Fatigue, Stress, etc. and big bag of weird dice.
Character creation in this new version of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is much better than the previous version, and will allow players that choose the same career for their hero to build something very individual, even tailored to their chosen back-story.
The weird dice also work very well when you get used to them, producing very nuanced combat that does not take too long to resolve, because most character (without heavy armour) can take at most three hits before being knocked unconscious, and defending yourself is hard, just reducing the likely amount of damage and the chance of a critical hit.
I like the game, but I am annoyed that I will need to buy lots of expensive supplements to 'fill in the blanks'.

Format:Toy
I have to say, I have loved the previous editions of WFRP and wasn't sure that the relatively large outlay for this product would result in an improvement on its previous outings. I bought it because I thought that they card-based approach of Fantasy Flight might make the game system a good introduction for younger players like my children (I'm not sure it is, but we had fun anyway).

The box-set is of outstanding quality. The materials are colourful and robust. The dice are many and varied, but the dice pool mechanics is actually pretty fast and capable of producing good descriptions of what the players achieve. Through the use of aggressive and conservative stances, the game encourages players to play a role. I've now GM'ed a short session and found it very satisfying.

Niggles: The price - blimey! However compare to the price of a video game and consider the number of hours entertainment you get from each. Maybe we don't value such games enough.
Character creation. It should be easy. Once you get used to it, it really is, but the chapter is not well set out, and would benefit from a complete example of character generation.
I also felt that some of the four "rule books" were rather light on content. There is a lot of fluff in the magic and religion books, yet only 3 orders of magic and 3 faiths are dealt with. The two new supplements on this subject look excellent, but for me I would have liked to see more useable content here.
Its great to see believable backgrounds and careers for high elves and wood elves (as well as dwarfs), but why no high-elf magic users? Maybe I'm missing something vital here, but I would have expected at least 1 elven magic user. I will have to check the rules again, I can't believe they don't have the option.

5.0 out of 5 stars New style of roleplay 31 Mar 2011
Format:Toy
Despite all the nagging on the web about this game destroying the idea of roleplay - this game is surely one of the best I've ever tried.

The dice pool system actually helps the storytelling (FFG didn't lie on that!) plus action card system straightforwardly tells you of what your characters are capable of, plus nicely balanced advancement system which gets your character to actually follow the chosen career.

All in all - great game with a big library of supplements. If you are a fan of Warhammer Fantasy wargame and want to get into roleplaying - it is definitely worth to try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything to hand 10 Jun 2013
Format:Toy|Verified Purchase
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Third Edition takes the approach that each player and the GM should have everything they need directly to hand wihtout having to flip back and forth through a large rulebook to find the piece of info you are after.

It does this through a large number of ability cards, handouts and other references available to everybody around the table. So that a player can quickly see what teh current status of their character is and the tactical options available to them

It seems to sit quite neatly between board games such as Arkham Horror and pure pen and paper games such as Call of Cthulhu. I found this was quite a good way to get people who might have otherwise veered away from playing an RPG into playing the games.

The contents of the box consist of four softbound books covering Basic Rules, Magic and Wizards, Religion and Priests, and the GM guide containing a bestiary, advice to GMS and a pre-generated adventure. Also included are the custom dice,(don't lose these, FFG seem averse to making replacements) a large number of ability cards and status cards, a couple of flat-pack card holders, a pad of character sheets, several sheets of counters (with obligatory plastic stands) and tokens that the game will eplain the purpose of and finally a deck of PC careers cards

Content wise the main box set has everything you need to start playing the game and is of a very high production quality.
The many expansions and box sets you can get for it all add to the game but as a stand-alone product it works well.

The Warhammer setting is quite famous thanks to Game Workshop and so already has a heavily developed back-story to draw on for GMs. There are also several starter scenarios available to download for free from the publisher's website to get quite a start for new players.

The game plays well and is fast-paced thanks to having everything on hand and I would recommend it.
