Hi, I've owned the core set for a couple of years. Found it difficult to digest, so I kept putting it away. Finally took it out last Sunday when there was a low turnout, and had a couple folks make characters. It was more illuminating than all my various readings, at least as far as character creation goes.
One thing that I couldn't find out was what it takes to cast spells or blessings. The respective don't seem to state it clearly anywhere, but I guess you have to be an apprentice wizard or initiate, or have spellcraft or invocation trained, or something like that?
Are there any expansion that provide more races than the core four? Since we get "Reiklanders" instead of "humans", that opens the doors for other derivations, like Kislevites. For that matter, I'd love to see a "Dogs of War" type of party that fields races that would normally never work together.
Are there any more careers than those in the core and Adventurer's toolkit? I noticed there's no assassin, which one player was looking for (and yes, I suggested that there are otehr careers that can serve in its stead).
