Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying


Recommended Posts

Has anyone converted this game setting to Magic World/BRP? Seems like all Warhammer needed to make it a totally kick ass fantasy game world was a game system like BRP!

I can't see it being that hard. Magic World almost invites that type of setting. You'd just have to reference other d100 games for stats on black-powder weapons and maybe get some d20 sources to get some ideas on various demons/devils to use.

Now that's an idea - I'd be keen on working on something like this.

I've actually worked on a Careers type of character construction for one of my own MW settings...

Easy touchstone would be translating all the career into Magic World Adventurer Occupations. Many of the character creation tables can be used directly.

I agree, but what about all the skills for making progress from basic to more advanced careers? Though you could fudge here and there, you'd end up having a lot of skill conversion and creation to do. I mean, Holy Moly, WHFP (1st ed) lists 133 skills to cater to various careers; MW has but 35 by comparison. Lots o'work there :-)

Hmmm...or...I dunno. I just called up my homebrew character sheets from my RQ III days. It actually had 74 skills listed when RQ III proper only described 30 some odd and suggested a few others to make it a grand total of 42. I wonder where I got those other skills? Hmmm...well, regardless, it would probably be more doable and less time consuming than I first thought.

Sunwolfe, that would be the trick. Coming up with a mechanic which gives the flavor of the Warhammer career paths. Unless you thought that was a terrible part of the game, and you want to just use the excellent world setting materials provided by the original game. To be of much utility I would strive for simplicity over making it too complex.
