IC: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay?

Greetings all and may Sigmar bless you and guide your hammers and swords as they cave in the skulls of mutants, orcs and *shudder* elves.

I'm in the mood to try running some WFRP again and was wondering if there was any interest out there? I'm leaning towards using a published or fan created adventure as a starting point before easing into a proper campaign like the Paths of the Damned from 2e (I definitely have ideas but it depends on the group.)

Edition wise I'm thinking either 1e (amazing lore and atmosphere) or 2e (better mechanical balance and the edition I'm most familiar with.) I have the 4th edition rules and there are definitely some aspects I like but I don't have much experience playing it and it seems too crunchy and fiddly for my tastes - though I'll certainly steal borrow ideas from it.

Anyway hoping there is some interest out there for shenanigans in the Old World. :)

Very interested! What kind of character creation will it be if the game manages to get enough players? Random? And if so, what "level" are you picturing? Low levels or capable people/heroes?

I don't have this ruleset. Is there any Quickstart Guide we can start from?

I'm in the same boat as Yaztromo: I don't have the ruleset.

However, I am interested in the Old World of Warhammer Fantasy, for sure.

Random (roll twice and pick) and starting careers - I want to see Rat Catchers! :)

To be honest I'm not sure there is a Quickstart as such, though the rules are fairly simple. There are character generators online for 2nd edition (https://www.silverghost.me.uk/wfrp/) and there is a wiki with a lot of the rules from 1e (https://wfrp1e.fandom.com/wiki/Table_Of_Contents) (note the editions have some differences - I'll decide which one to use based on interested players.)

I'd be willing to work with completely new players to roll up characters or provide pregens. :)

It's been a long time since I played in the non-40k Warhammer world, and not moving miniature armies around on a tabletop, lol. =)

I'm completely new to system, setting, and lore, but if that's not a deal-breaker, I'm interested.

I have to admit I didn't quite expect so many new players but there is obvious interest.

Interest isn't the hard part with Warhammer games from my experience, it's getting the right group together.

(I'm interested too but it'll depend on what they story actually pans out to be and if I make it through the application filter)

Let's do it.  Have tried 3 games now and all have dried up.  Hope this one lasts.

Thank you for all the interest. My apologies I should have closed this thread earlier; I have since started the game and have sufficient players.
