Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay - Deconstructing
I recently picked up a copy of the 1st edition rules that had survived a fire with a charred spine and a slightly smokey after-taste but appears otherwise intact. Intact, that is, before I take it apart and see what I can salvage from it both conceptually and graphically.
I've always loved the Games Workshop style of illustrating their work but have had problems with their RPG system. I'm a 1e player and WFRPG is pretty anathema to my thought process as a DM. I do like some of their magic, their items and creatures and they had a depressing but top notch world setting (If only they had some writers who could have done it justice).
I'm not sure what there is to scavenge but it is a big book and hopefully their will be ideas worth stealing as well as illustrations.
