It’s been a busy year for Cubicle 7, and their edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is doing well. It ranks second in the list of bestselling fantasy RPGs on DrivethruRPG for the year.
On the 19th of December they added the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Starter Set to their catalogue. This supplement is a 132-paged book that’ll set you back about US $15.
The Starter Set, as the name implies, is designed to fast track you into a game of Warhammer. The set includes an introductory scenario structured in a way that will help you learn how to play, character portfolios and a guide to the town of Ubersreik. The physical box set is still on pre-order, but when it hits the shelves, it will also include the two ten-sided dice you need to play.
The PDF version, available at DriveThruRPG, was warmly received on launch and at the time of writing has 4.5/5 stars from over a dozen reviews. However, some customers noticed the starter set didn’t have any pre-generated characters. First Cubicle 7 suggested those would come in an update in January. Then, out of the blue, on the 21st of December, the PDF version was given an update with precisely that.
The full list of contents for the Warhammer starter set is;
- 64-page A Guide To Ubersreik
- 48-page Adventure Boom
- 6 Ready-made Characters
- A Read First introductory sheet
- Sheet of 49 Advantage tokens
