Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play
The Warhammer world is filled with rich detail, and exciting adventures. The system seems to be designed for running long campaigns. You don;t play the shining hero it’s a grittier game filled with intrigue. As your character develops he will gain in power as well as insanity and chaos mutations. The setting contains much dark humor making the horrors tolerable.
I love the concept of this innovative system, where custom dice are used to create a wide range of possible results. It will take some getting used to, but it provides a great way to narrate and resolve actions.
Play this when you want a complex game with a rich and detailed setting. The dark setting has to be agreed on by all the players, for it is different from your usual high fantasy. Making it a great change of pace.
