Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay

This is a First Impressions post for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 3rd Edition. In this post I'll largely just be look at what comes in the box with a further look at the rules etc in a later post.

The Why

Two weeks ago I wrote a post ranting about the new edition of Warhammer and the reasons I wouldn’t be buying into it again. I’m not going to slate the new edition, I just can’t justify it, but I still love the universe and I wanted to look for a new way to explore it.

So (in a huff) I googled the base set of WFRP to see how much I could pick it up for… £53 (play.com) which sounded incredibly reasonable. I ummed and ahhed and weighed options (pay rent… buy new game) and before the night was out I had purchased a copy.

The Hate

With the game now listed as “Packing” I figured it was about time I actually read a review of it. I decided to check BGG as I always do and the reviews over there on the RPG section of the site are all positive. However I decided I wanted a bit more info so I checked out the FFG site. And what did I find… A storm of hate!
