Another of the cryptic shadows hinted at earlier by Grey Wizard Gavius Klugge in our Shifting Through Shadows preview has revealed itself – I’m pleased to announce the upcoming Winds of Magic supplement for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay.

Click here to read the rest of the announcement.

 Yay! Fantastic.

Now, I suppose we'll have to wait for the Priest expansion. :P

Over the next few weeks I'll be spoiling additional details... perhaps a look at the new corruption & mutation rules... maybe the design of the different College spell themes and mechanics... hopefully you'll all stay tuned to find out!

Is there some Speed Ordering system you can implement and just debit our bank accounts directly and send the supplements over quicker? ;)

Although I can't be more excited about this item, I looked at the Upcoming page and saw this:

"Expected by: summer '10"

Which is disappointing. I was hoping sooner than 'somewhere between June and August'.

I doubt we will see elf magic in this one, that would be much better suited for a suplement dedicated to the pointyeared ones. Seeing the rest of the colleges along with higher ranking careers is going to be interesting.

Since this will contain spells from all 8 colleges, I presume this will also contain the basic and intermediate career sheets for the other colleges as well, but what about advanced careers for all colleges? Will they be in here as well or are we waiting on a later supplement for those?

The only problem i can see with that is there simply isn't another career which can compete with the power of a master wizard...

Depends how ingrained into high society they want to go - if its ok to be a wizard lord then surely its ok to be a high ranking Knight of the White Wolf or somesuch..?

I didn't see anything about careers in the description, and the wizard careers in the Core Set are not bound to a particular college. It would be great to get advanced wizard career sheets like Wizard, Battle Wizard, Master Wizard, and Wizard Lord, but I'm not sure if we'll be getting those.

From what has been released I'm expecting to get 5 additional Order talent cards for the remaining 5 Colleges.

Look. 

There are four playable races.

Three of them can cast spells.

Only one of them has any magical careers.

Not all high elven magicians, let alone all elves, use high magic.  Plenty of them use colour magic. 

To not have any elven spellcasting careers at all after the main set, the GM's pack, the adventurers pack, and a supplement dedicated to magic is beyond ridiculous.

Why not just give the elf the human wizard career if you just want an elf with colour magic?

The lack of magic for the other races is dissapointing.  We already got some of these orders covered in main set, so now were going to just get more for those plus the others?

The games obsession with the Empire focused stuff is killing it for our group.  And a Summer release also dampens excitement as with all things FFG, delays are inevitable it seems and any more content is far off.

Now this of course is a MUCH better addition to the game than the stupid gathering storm set which looks like a giant waste of time, or the dissapointing GM tool kit.  THIS should have come out right after the main box set, along with the excellent Adventurer's tool kit.

The releases have created a large gap of MEATY releases for the game.  Since it's debut we have gotten mostly just fluff pieces and now we wait till Summer for something of actual use?  Hopefully releases pick up for this game and move into more important territory and not waste more time with campaign sets.

There's an elf on the cover.  I'll bet we see High Elf apprentice or trainee careers in here.  Perhaps Wood Elves too (as they're pretty much just Jade and Amber wizards).
