The classes and races of the new WoW RPG are far more integrated into the game world than the previous edition, and this is a very good thing. They feel like their own independant creations, now, rather than just minor tweakings of standard D&D classes and races. My one gripe with the racial groupings, however, is that not all PC races have the new "Racial Level" option (borrowed from Monte Cook's "Arcana Unearthed" text), and that not all Racial Levels are created equal. Class-wise, I still believe that integrating a Mana-System instead of the Spell Slot system (modified from standard D20 or not) would have been easily done and would fit the feel of the game world more.Read more ›
Now, I know that was a very cliché paragraph to start the review, and I'm sure you've all heard something like it before. I'm also sure you've all heard the next statement used to follow up said paragraph: Well, I was not let down by this wonderful product! It's very true. World of Warcraft The Roleplaying Game is perhaps my favorite of all the books I've bought to feed my roleplaying addiction. It has a brand new set of races, a brand new set of classes and a brand new set of feats and spells. All of which are very Warcraft in feel and all very playable.
Let me go into more detail about my favorites about the cool new stuff. I think the coolest new thing, which isn't really new at all if you own Monte Cook's Arcana Unearthed or Arcana Evolved, is the use of racial levels instead of level adjustment. I just think that's the coolest darn thing I've ever heard of. Instead of just leveling up slower, your character can take levels in your given race to gain your various high-powered abilities. This makes it very fun to play races such as the Tauren or the Jungle Trolls, and gives you more options when creating your character. I'm also in love with the ability of your character to build and operate all kinds of machinery and technology. I especially like the rules for firearms, where if you roll a 1 on your attack roll it's treated as the gun blowing up, and your character and everyone around takes damage. It makes for some humorous, and very dangerous, encounters. The new feats and spells are interesting too.Read more ›
The system is fairly easy to learn and is apparently widely used with other RPGs. It does not mimic the MMO's race / class system but this is a boon, allowing players greater input into the development of their characters. Azeroth is not set in stone (or even in binary and glitchy patches) but becomes a dyamic, living place where anything can happen. (Hey, why not let the Night Elves forge a treaty with the Taurens? Killing off the undead or the gnomes becomes an option, as well-- or the dwarves-- or the humans-- or whomever.)
If you enjoy RPGs and you like the cult-classic MMO of the same name, you're sure to find this book a valuable resource and a pleasure in itself.
