  1. Well, I must say. Seeing the two of you go back and forth a bit REALLY makes me want to try this system!!! I like that its been stated that it is a grim, dark setting and that evety encounter is a dangerous one. Limited healing is VERY appealing cause you know how d20 goes- "Holy crap, that (insert monster) just tore you apart!" "Ehh, thats ok, here, you're healed by one cubic ass-ton and may carry on! No need to ever worry about an encounter, unless the GM put something WAY too strong in front of us!" I strive to have my players actually "worry" about an encounter again and maybe think about running for a change.
  2. Hi there, I was just wondering if anyone knows if this adventure will be a free download as well. Just curios since it's for a "free rpg" day and there isn't any way I can make it to one of the events. Thanks all!
  3. There really is a point to all of this, please read on (I am hoping that this is the right forum to post something like this in) Ok, to start out this topic, let me say this- EotE has changed my RPing outlook forever. My experience has been AD&D 2nd edition, very little SAGA and of course, years of 3.5. So, let me grab my soapbox and get to work- So, as you can see from what I have played, the only system I have ever really known has been d20. And lets call a d20 system what it really is- a turned based strategy combat game with some story telling in between. This is something that I have hated about playing RPG's for YEARS!!! Not to mention all the amounts of rules that just bog a game to a complete halt. "Oh, you're gonna do that? Let's see, that's a uhh…… Oh, that's a -2 to your roll. Oh, but you did this as well, so then that's a +4". It never ends. I'm sure that there are rules somewhere for a character picking their nose. But again, it's the only system I have ever known. Now for the good talk- I just bought the EotE beginner box, read through the first adventure, about half of the rulebook that came with it and I LOVE THE SYSTEM!!! It very much so seems like a "lets keep things moving and so long as the GM has a bit of logical thinking, it will run smoothly" (I could say a lot more positive things, but they are all things you've heard before) system. So, the point to all of this? I do love fantasy settings as well, as do my players. So, I have been looking at a system that seems to be like the EotE system- Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (WFRP). My question to all of you is this- Does WFRP offer the same type of fantasy setting that a say D&D setting does? Things such as dragons, mind flayers, beholders and such? I know it won't have "mind flayers" or "beholders" but I think and hope you understand what I'm getting at. I just want the EotE system but it a fantasy setting and am really hoping that I can get a little feedback before I drop $100 on a setting that I won't like. I have done a fair amount of research (fantasy flights website, youtube) and I can't seem to come up with a solid answer other than "it's the warhammer setting". Thanks in advance for any help here!
