A brilliant addition! Introduces WHFRPG Lite,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay: The Player's Guide (Toy)
Honestly, I was quite skeptical of a new book that was potentially just a rehash of the previous rules.
I'm a complete convert now though. The Player's Guide is a brilliant addition to the line.
You could play the entire game just using the Player's Guide and one set of WHFRPG dice using the new WHFRPG Lite rules.
The Player's Guide has copies of all of the abilities, skills, etc. from the previously published box sets.
The Lite version is similar to a standard RPG using character sheets with the abilities annotated on the sheet rather than using the cards and counters from the various previous products.
I appreciate that Fantasy Flight Games took this step.
It is a wonderful bridge for players who might find the wholesale switch to the tracks, cards, and counters to be too much a leap.
Additionally, it lets the Game Master (GM) pick and choose from amongst supplements that he might not already have.
I found the rules clarifications to be helpful as well.
It turns out that I had been using the recharge rules slightly differently than intended.
The production quality is top notch. These sturdy books will survive many campaigns.
I highly recommend this both as an entry level product for WHFRPG 3.0 as well as a capstone document for those of us who have bought the earlier materials.
