|Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay | Published 21 February 2011|
The light of the two moons shines down, revealing several twisted paths before you. You have been here before, and you feel Chaos growing nearer. Question rage in your mind, and the unnatural baying from behind tells you there is little time for answers.
The beasts of the Old World will not answer your questions. Fortunately, the updated Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay FAQ (pdf, 1.5 MB) will. Also, two cards containing errata information from The Creature Vault have been added to the support page to coincide with the information from The Creature Guide.
Head on over to the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay support page and continue your fight against Chaos.
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.
Both the Rapid Fire and Double Strike cards found in the Player's Vault are the updated versions, which is nice. The same goes for the Aqshy Order card.
In the Player's Guide, the text for Double Strike is the old version while Rapid Fire has the updated rules. Ah, the confusion! But at least the cards are right in the PV, and for me that's critical.
Some people might think my stance on the poor editing of the WFRP game line is overboard, and they may be right. But consider this - WFRP is meant to be played with components to speed things up and eliminate the need to open up a book or memorize rules. Therefore, it's really a pain when those components aren't right and you need to reference a book to use them. In that case, what's the point of playing with the cards?
For the price of these boxed sets - and we're paying for the bits, not big, hardbound rulebooks - I expect them to be error free. They won't be, but I don't think that's an unreasonable expectation to have in the first place.
This is so fantastic. More Paper for our table.
I agree that all corrected cards should be included in a later expansion. Double strike, Cloak of Dragibscales, Enchanting Visage and the Aqshy Order card. Also I think that the Rapid Fire card should be included since not everyone buy the Players Vault (the only reason to buy it for me is for the corrected cards, and if I understand the double strike is still mistprinted).
Should be relatively cheap to include these cards in the Omens of War for example.
Actually, an apology is probably impractical for legal reasons :)
PS These comments really need an edit button!
Just because it's a fantastic game - and it is, definitely - doesn't mean that FFG couldn't implement better quality control. We all understand that errors can creep in, but the Guides and Vaults were an opportunity to fix errors, not introduce a slew of new ones - especially on cards, which really are a pain to correct. A simple apology and an assurance that cards will be replaced in the next supplement would be appreciated by us loyal WFRP supporters, I'm sure.
I find that with a format such as this it is inevitable that small mistakes will be overlooked. However I agree that FFG should try and make up for the mounting list of editing problems by providing the fan base with more free content. Something as simple as a poster map of the old world or more downloadable adventures would be a nice gesture. Or they should hire on more editors and proof readers to try and lessen this glaring problem that I've had my eye on since making the switch over to 3rd edition.
however there are so few mistakes that it is easy to deal with. So many house rules get created anyway that it should be easy to get around 5 mistakes out of 400 cards.
Whoa, ffgfan you sound close to needed a new moniker. I understand the frustration though. I wish we could get products with less errors, especially since the Guides were supposed to clear some of that up. In the end however I cannot stay upset with FFG. I love this game, it is the best tabletop RPG I have ever played, and it is what it is becasue of this company and this production team. So I'll take it warts and all. Hail Sigmar!
Too many errors - really? I think, given the amount of books, the errors are minimal. They just seem overwhelming cause they are all in one place.
Though I agree that we can wait a bit more for mistake-free products (like with Atlas Games, chaosium, white Wolf - NOT!!!)
I want to like and support WFRP 3E, but the amount of errors in this product line are unacceptable.
FFG - slow down and proof your work. I would much rather have fewer, properly-edited and well-designed releases than a bunch of poorly thought-out ones that require pages of errata.
Until that happens, I'm not going to buy anymore supplements for this game. Hopefully FFG can turn things around and earn my money again sometime in the future...
Thank you for your ongoing support!
Unfortunately, there is still no explanation how the agenda tracker of the nemesis sheets (Game Masters Toolkit) are intended to be used.
Oh an by the way this news is also worth nothing. This FAQ and errata is ONE BIG DISAPPOINTMENT AND THE LIST OF MISTAKES IS UNACCEPTABLE!!!!
PS. If all this will go on by the end of this year we will get THE BIG BOOK OF FAQ AND ERRATA GUIDE FOR WFRP 3ED!
There are two things that I don't like:
one - the list of mistakes from all G&V products is a proof that those products that should be an errata were one Big Mistake
two - those missed cards from Creature Vault should be printed and added for free to the nearest expansion for this game. If I would want to print them by myself I woudn't buy Creatures Vault.
I think that many of You will agre with me.
