A glimpse into the Game Master's Vault for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay | Published 20 October 2010

Previously, Sifting Through Shadows (the exciting preview of upcoming titles for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay) broke the news of Guides and Vaults, upcoming products that will give WFRP players even more options in exploring the Old World. Guides are hardcover books that contain rules of play. For players wishing to enhance their experience, however, Vaults contain all the additional components that make WFRP such a revolutionary roleplaying system.

Previously we looked at the Player’s Guide and the Player’s Vault, and last week we delved into the Game Master’s Guide. Today we’ll open the doors of the Game Master’s Guide companion product, the Game Master’s Vault, which contains all the tools a GM will need to plan and run their WFRP sessions, consisting all the key Game Master components from the Core Set.

The Game Master’s Vault is packaged in a sturdy box that contains a set of basic action cards, 70 wound cards, 19 miscast cards, 30 condition cards, 30 insanity cards, 24 location cards (duplicates of 12 different locations), and 1 item card. In addition to cards, the Game Master’s Vault also contains full colour punchboard consisting of NPC/creature standups, stress/fatigue tokens, corruption tokens, a stance ring and activation token, 24 tracking tokens, 2 center puzzle fit stance pieces with 6 puzzle fit stance pieces, and 1 pre-assembled progress track that serves as a handy initiative track.

Rounding out the Game Master’s Vault is a valuable set of 12 custom WFRP dice as well as 24 plastic stands for character standups. Also in the Vault is a two-page insert that compiles a list of these components in addition to providing rules for the included materials. Game Masters who want to learn even more ways to incorporate these components in their games will find expanded rules and explanations in the Game Master’s Guide.

Like the Player’s Vault, the Game Master’s Vault is a product with a variety of uses. Veteran GMs can expand their pool of resources while new GMs can begin their stories in the Old World with the Game Master’s Guide and/or Game Master’s Vault.

Coming up next, expand your knowledge of the denizens of the Old World with The Creature Guide & Vault!

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.

 Oops, nevermind.  That's the toolkit.

 Doesn't this also come with a GM Screen?

"24 location cards (duplicates of 12 different locations).....

 

Why would you need two of each location card?

I was wondering just the same. I'm betting they're allready just about the least used cards in the Core box. Why would we need a doubble set of them? And only 1 Item card?

I wonder what dice colors will be included in there...

Hope there won't be any blue, green and red dice, as with all the dice packs I bought, I have more of those than I will ever need in this and the next life..

I know there's a preview in here somewhere... oh yeah, the "sturdy box"! 

Guess I shouldn't complain, some preview is better than none at all.  Keep 'em coming!

I'm pretty sure it is the latter, as in plural "punchboards". It is referring to the punchboards containing: NPC/creature standups, stress/fatigue tokens, corruption tokens, a stance ring and activation token, 24 tracking tokens, 2 center puzzle fit stance pieces with 6 puzzle fit stance pieces", which won't all fit on a single punchboard.

The monsters & NPC standups included in the GMV are for the adventure included in the Core Set/GMG (i.e. an Eye for an Eye).

"In addition to cards, the Game Master’s Vault also contains full colour punchboard consisting of..."  

 

The poor grammar of this sentence has me wonder if is should read "contains A full colour punchboard..."

 

or

 

"contains full colour punchboardS..."

 

Regardless can we get a list of what NPC/Monsters are on these punchboards.  I would have figured monsters would come in the monster product?
