Warhammer 40k: Wrath & Glory
« on: November 11, 2017, 06:52:01 AM »
Ulisses Spiele is publishing a new 40k roleplaying game. 

Some mention of it being out next year..?

What system does Wrath & Glory use?

Wrath & Glory has a brand-new game system involving dice pools of d6s to represent your character’s abilities. The game focuses on highlighting brutal combat, fast action, and a deep immersion into the setting of the 41st Millennium.


Wonderful!  That's the kinda stuff it needed IMO.

Will probably sell my Dark Heresy 2e and Deathwatch collections if this new one is up to snuff.  There will always be some who'd prefer the out-of-print d100 FFG system anyway, so win-win.  :)

Sounds good. Deathwatch was a mess. 2 double sided character sheets loaded up with stat lines and modifiers was not what anyone wanted from a 40K game.

I thought so too, but..

Believe it or not, there is a vocal crowd who still complains if it's anything but that old DRM-filled d100 system they seem to love. 

It's the same one as the old 1st & 2nd Edition WFRPs, but with even more special case modifiers.  There were many people complaining about WFRP 3rd edition changing the system.  Enough that the 4th edition WFRP will use it.

The old GW RPG was popular because of all the cool options and setting.  Despite the crappy core mechanic it was built upon.  I don't understand why so many people still stubbornly refuse any other way.  Too much nostalgia or refusal to learn something new?  :knuppel2:

I think it's a mix of nostalgia and being so accustomed to it that it has actually become fairly second nature. But it's so obtuse and difficult to learn initially that it's a steep climb (akin to a cliff face) for newcomers.
