One of the cryptic shadows hinted at earlier by Grey Wizard Gavius Klugge in our Shifting Through Shadows preview has finally become clear – I’m pleased to announce the upcoming Game Master’s Toolkit for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay.
The Game Master’s Toolkit is a valuable resource for both new and veteran Game Masters. The toolkit is filled with a number of helpful tools and adventure seeds for Game Masters to enhance their Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay games, as well as provides more advice and suggestions to help refine their GM skills and get the most out of the materials and rules provided with the game.
One of the key features of the Game Master’s Toolkit is the large full colour screen. One side of the screen features gorgeous full colour art from the game. The other side of the screen features rule summaries and a wealth of information, including a built-in progress track, page references to important sections from the core rulebook, and a variety of charts and tables to help the GM keep his focus on the story.
The Game Master’s Toolkit also includes punchboard with more NPC and creature standups and tokens, a variety of new location and item cards, and introduces organisation sheets to integrate into your game. The toolkit also includes a full colour 48-page GM book.
The book features invaluable tips and guidelines to help a GM manage the game, engage his players, and create memorable adventures for his group. The book includes a number of detailed episode templates to help cut down on prep time, as well as introduces new rules for Nemesis Characters and Nemesis Organisations to challenge the heroes. Armed with the resources found in this toolkit, a GM will always be ready for action!
Stay tuned to the website for more information and sneak peeks about the Game Master’s Toolkit as in the coming weeks.
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is a roleplaying game that sets unlikely heroes on the road to perilous adventure, in the grim setting of Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy world. Players will venture into the dark corners of the Empire, guided by luck and Fate, and challenge the threats that others cannot or will not face.
Well, I know I'm going to be buying it the second it arrives at my local game store.
Can it be that second now?!
$29.95 according to the product page. I must say that WFRP3e products haven't been as pricey as I initially feared.
Needs to come with some dice to be really useful
The big question, how much does it cost?
@ Rabid Wookie: I think your concerns are unfounded. That looks to me like a computer generated mock up, not the actual product. For all the problems I have with this game, the production is top-notch. I seriously doubt they'd bother to release a simple card-stock screen.
Great to see this focus on making life easier for GMs.
In a future expansion, could we also get new copies of cards that have been corrected by the FAQ? Cheers.
Sounds awesome, but I have one concern; the picture appears to show a flimsy cardstock GM screen. FFG has helped raise the bar with it's heavy hardback GM screens for Dark Heresy and Rogue Trader; WFRP3 deserves a quality hardback screen as well!
if the box art is telling the truth then three words- orc on wyvern
hmm, I think that ox should have a beastiary in it.
Prefer mins over cut outs,Not big on the screen-they just get in my way. If they put the book up as an inexpensive PDF give it a look over. More Location cards are meh., I can make my own.
I just hope that it is as nicely built as the Rogue Trader GM screen- VERY nice quality materials.
Looking good! This should be out asap as far as I'm concerned!
