Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition: Core Rulebook


Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more of Santa's savings, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

In Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, you are unlikely heroes in a grim world of perilous adventure. You venture into the dark corners of the Empire and deal with the threats that others cannot or will not face. You'll probably die alone in some festering hellhole, but maybe, just maybe, you'll survive foul Mutants, horrible diseases, insidious plots, and sanity-blasting rituals to reap Fate's rewards.

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is a complete game. All you need to play is in this book, some dice, and a group of friends. Inside these covers you'll find:


• A quick system for character creation. You can make a character in less than half an hour and jump right into the game. 

• A simple yet robust set of rules that let you handle everything from social interaction to Chaos mutations.

• A unique career-based system of character advancement and over 100 careers - from Assassin and Bone Picker to Troll Slayer and Zealot.

• Complete rules for magic, cover both Arcane and Divine Orders and over 175 spells. Power can be had, but beware Tzeentch's Curse!

• Details on the Empire and the Old World, from the social order to religion and belief. 

• A complete introductory adventure, Through the Drakwald. 

• A new short story by renowned Gaunt's Ghosts author Dan Abnett.

I'd really like to buy this if I could get it printed. Already purchased all the PDFs elsewhere, but want to have it in my physical library too.

I have the second version as well. Mwa, ha, ha, ha...
But the first edition is the best in my opinion. A true old school gem.

Great that this is still available but lack of bookmarks is disappointing. I went out of my way to support the IP holders and pay for a legal PDF of the game so I did expect more. But I am still grateful to C7 for making it available though.

No index. The page numbers do not match the PDF page numbers.

Although I am very glad I bought it, I am also disappointed at the lack of index in the pdf document.

I don't suppose there is ANY chance of this going back into print, is there?

I would love to see PoD versions of this system. You need a bank loan to buy OOP copies.

I thought I'd never find this book again after getting rid of it as a kid and seeing the prices this thing is going for. Got super lucky today and found a copy in mint condition at my used book store for only $15 plus a store coupon I had brought it down to $10. Crazy find.

Good grief.... add a freaking index. It's kind of useless if you can't navigate through the book.

Can someone please tell me if they bookmarked the second edition books? My physical copies are wearing down and would like to upgrade to digital and I'm not sure if they allow editing of their pdfs to be bookmarked.

So happy I have my original books. But I may pick this up if they cleaned up the errors.

I dunno. Might just have to see what they come up with 4Ed. If that is both backwards compatible and somehow enhanced, it might make the demand for 2nd Ed POD somewhat redundant.

hmm maybe, when does the new edition come out? i hope really fast, i need my old world fix XD

Still no bookmarks... There were none when I bought it from FFG, but I'm sure we can expect C7 to remedy this ;) Please put them in for ease of use.

It seems unlikely, given that 4th ed is on it's way.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
