I am quite intrigued and excited by the new V3 of my favorite game.
The only thing that bugs me is this:
30 careers in the core, 10 extra careers for 30$.
That's 40 careers to start with. We have over 100 in v2... THat is a great problem !
Because the career system is used first and foremost to make... NPCs !!!
Any game needs far more NPCs than PCs, and there is a need for a great variety of NPCs too !
The major strength of WFRP has always been the career system as an enabler for GMs first and foremost.
I am writing this down as a new thread because I want the FFG staff to read this.
And I would very much like to know your thoughts regarding this issue.
Are the cities of the Empire to be populated by thousands of generic "burghers" and "watchman/militiaman" with "academics" as their surgeons, apothecaries, scribes, clerks, lawyers, magistrates... ? That would be a direct dumbing down of the Old World and something very DnDish in the end... Remember the dreaded "normal human" ?
