In Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, you are unlikely heroes in a grim world of perilous adventure. You venture into the dark corners of the Empire and deal with the threats that others cannot or will not face. You'll probably die alone in some festering hellhole, but maybe, just maybe, you'll survive foul Mutants, horrible diseases, insidious plots, and sanity-blasting rituals to reap Fate's rewards.

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is a complete game. All you need to play is in this book, some dice, and a group of friends. Inside these covers you'll find:


• A quick system for character creation. You can make a character in less than half an hour and jump right into the game. 

• A simple yet robust set of rules that let you handle everything from social interaction to Chaos mutations.

• A unique career-based system of character advancement and over 100 careers - from Assassin and Bone Picker to Troll Slayer and Zealot.

• Complete rules for magic, cover both Arcane and Divine Orders and over 175 spells. Power can be had, but beware Tzeentch's Curse!

• Details on the Empire and the Old World, from the social order to religion and belief. 

• A complete introductory adventure, Through the Drakwald. 

• A new short story by renowned Gaunt's Ghosts author Dan Abnett.

Great book and great system and I think it's wonderful it's available in POD (I can't wait for my physical order to get here). One thing that bothers me is that in this day and age the pdf lacks bookmarks. I mean, come on, it's the core rulebook, one [...]

My go to Fantasy Roleplay system. Lots and lots of information on the Warhammer World is out there. The system is simple enough that roleplaying becomes the goal, and not messing with the rules. [...]

It's one of the most amazing game with most amazing features of career. I hope they release more of this, into something like 2.5ed. It's a really shame that I couldn't delve more into the world. [...]

Probably the best fantasy RPG out there. If you looking for something different from D&D get it! But remember; this is grim world where death is always near. [...]

Impossible at this early stage to rate a game at 5 stars. I played 1st edition back in the day and loved it so I'm really anticipating something special, RPG-wise. I read the designer notes at the back and felt the reasoning for the the amendments were [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
