In the thread concerning Jay latest sales pitch about WFRP Character Creation Process Mr Darkkami came up with the suggestion that this system would work nicely for a World of Warcraft RPG.
That's actually one of the better ideas Ive seen here in a really long time.
This system is really perfect for a World of Warcraft RPG!
Flashy dice and glossy boardgame components and rules adapted to a action packed slaughter fest.
I am actually one of those who still enjoy the WOW boardgame despite its immense downtime, and everything we seen in these 3:ed previews is really related to that boardgame anyway.
The HUGE problem Ive got with this new edition is that it rhymes extremely bad to the previous installments of Warhammer roleplay.
Warhammer is a dark and gritty tale of betrayal, religious fanaticism, cults and paranoia. Its misunderstandings, devious plots and hidden agendas. Its about unwilling heroes running away from the inquisition, corrupted officials and mislead commoners. All this baked together with a great measure cynical dark humor.
My aggression toward the new edition isn't that I believe that the mechanics and glossy gadgets we get necessarily stinks... but they are DEFINITELY NOT Warhammer.
For a fast phase action packed Word of Warcraft RPG is could actually be rather well adapted and good.
I found this idea actually deserved its own thread in the forums. =)
