Greetings everyone!

 

So I'm new here, and still very new to wfrp 3ed. I've played lots of rpg (warhammer 2nd, pathfinder, D&D 3.5/4) and now i want to introduce my friends to wfrp 3rd. I have almost everything released so far (except for one or 2 pod).

 

I'd like to run something that would give us about 10-12 hours of gameplay, so we can test the system and have a "feel" for it.

 

Which adventure should I be running, which is the best experience for a new group (they know warhammer setting though) for about that much time?

 

Thanks a lot!

Telk

Go with Eye for an Eye. Should be 10-12 hours with adjusting dice pools and everything.

 

We liked it a lot!

Eye for an Eye!  Lots of fun, and has a great WFRP feal.  Great into adventure!

Personally, I don't think Eye for an Eye is appropriate as a first adventure. It's fun, but it's tough for a GM to manage, many NPCs, and many locations. It is also not linear at all.

I prefer Journey to Black Fire Pass as an intro adventure, as it's linear, fun, easy to manage for the GM, and very WFRP like for the players.

I agree that Eye for an Eye is depanding on the GM, not for system/rules reasons but simply the fluid situation to manage.  Now that is part of what I like about Warhammer (Rough Night at Three Feathers being my all time favourite adventure) but it's tough if you're not an experienced GM and also new to system.

If you're comfortable with a fluid situation, it can work.  Otherwise, I think the "episodic" Gathering Storm is a good introduction.

I found "The Witches Song" to be fun and straightforward.

 My advise is Black Fire Path. I have used it as an introduction to WFRP3 and it does a very good job
 - it can be played in 1 game session,
 - it is straightforward and uses all the game basics
 - the characters are pre-generated, and have a real background integrated in the scenario
 
 Creating the characters can be too long with players new to WFRP3 ("ok, now choose your 2 action cards in this 100 cards pack"), so using pre-generated is very recommended.

Character creation seems easier when you've got somethign to start with and compare to.  I'd agree that the pregens are a great idea for Black Fire Pass.

 

For Eye for an Eye, I suggest the pre-generated characters from Liber Fanatica 7, and also see the completions from later products that I uploaded to RPGGeek:
