Welcome back to the Old World. Prepare yourself for the struggle of the gutter, to fight for your survival, and to face corruption on all sides. Prepare yourself for danger, as it is everywhere, and you can’t face it alone. And, most of all, prepare yourself for the grim and perilous adventure of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay!
The fourth edition of the original dark fantasy roleplaying game, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay takes you back to the world where Chaos never sleeps. Drawing inspiration from the legendary early publications of the grimdark RPG, WFRP brings innovative twists to build on the beloved classic.
The world of Warhammer has a decades long legacy of great games, spectacular storytelling, and awesome adventures. The expansive world of Warhammer means something different to everyone – particularly when interpreting the rules is concerned! We want you to play in your interpretation of the Old World with your version of the rules, so we’ve created a host of tools to help customize WFRP to taste. After all, it’s your game.
WFRP brings back a variation of the familiar d100 system with a few innovative twists. You can keep the action fast with Simple Tests and lean into that classic crunch with Dramatic Tests - customize your game with a combination of both. Combat is savage and bombastic, with every melee a rollercoaster of contested rolls. The new Advantage mechanic adds momentum and drama to every encounter, meaning less whiffing and more brutal critical hits!
A Grim World of Perilous Adventure
The Bad Moon rises, the winds of magic blow, and ears are turned by the murmurs of the ruinous powers... The Old World setting is famed for its originality and richness, and we’ve brought that to the fore. Adventure through a smorgasbord with snooty nobles and putrid peasants, through terrifying horrors and darkly comedic scenarios.
Something old, something new…
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay has a massive back catalog bristling with vile beasts, strange sorceries and grubby fantasy adventures, and there’s a place in our heart reserved for all of them. Director’s cuts and refreshed rewrites of these legendary classics will bring that same joy from decades past to newcomers, whilst adding enough optional changes and improvements to please any Old World veteran.
Pick up and Play
With mutated chaos cultists, savage greenskins, and rumours of rodents of unusual size, the Old World may seem intimidating and dangerous.
