Is this game scattered to a degree that makes it difficult to pickup?
I have been playing warhammer quest/Hero quest for years and recently looked into finding something of the same lore. After seeing the dice mechanic of wfrp 3ed and the action cards and though this is it. awesome.
First of all the Corebox set feels like nothing more than an expensive tease. Honestly felt like i paid for a 5 minuet hand job. No where near enough to get finished. half the BASIC careers are missing, advanced careers are only advanced in name. Would that not be the ideal time to upgrade some stats? rather than the hideously expensive upgrades during career advancement.
The beastiery is more like a pet store unless you purches a whole box set and even then basic things are missed out. Vampires and the undead are fine with sun light these days? just as well Nagash hasn't found out yet old world would be a grave yard. Though maybe that's what's happening, we wouldn't know as were stuck in a corner of the empire. Just as well we aren't the adventuring types...
basic mechanics are poorly explained! movement for example; using fatigue you can cross an extreme range in a turn and still make an attack? while small monsters half murder them selves doing that. Other mechanics like corruption, disease and riding are all extras?
I've barely spent a month and £60 and i already feel cheated. After working out what is needed just to get 4 characters past their first career is daunting specially when considering that is but step 1 of 5. Plus there's no content for any of the other parts of the empire let alone the darker and more exotic areas (araby, southlands, wastlands, of the dead, skaven underworld)
Why wasn't the box set filled with All rules and careers and then subsequent box sets filled with the fluff, campaigns, local disease', cults exotic actions and reward items.
waist of some fantastic mechanics... and now I just fill like an old man ranting & raving under the strain of his insanity cards.
