ZWEIHANDER: A gritty, low fantasy roleplaying game based on Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay

ENWorld reported that Grim & Perilous Studios will be releasing ZWEIHANDER, a game based on the mechanics of the classic Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. While the game will be based around the old WFRP system, the developers promise that the game will provide “many modern advances found in today’s roleplaying game industry.” The game, which is slated to release in Fall 2012, will be available from print-on-demand and will be supported by Grim & Perilous with a living ruleset. If you would like a better look at how the game will work, the character sheet has been posted, as has an eight-page preview of the magic chapter available on the official page. The game will not include any setting information, but if you are a fan of the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay system, you might want to keep your eyes on this in the coming months. Check out the official page for more information.

  1. Thanks for the mention, Michael! ZWEIHÄNDER is indeed a “loveletter” to Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. Expect no heartbreaker RPG from our team – it is every bit as grim and perilous as the Old World!

  2. You have been very patient with us as we’ve been working on readying our second public beta. Titled “GRIMDARK Edition”, it includes all of the gritty, perilous adventure mechanics you’d come to expect from ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG!

    We’ve prepared the vast majority of what’s been internally playtested into one single document. It includes character creation, combat, wilderness travel and more! While some parts of the playtest are not quite ready for GRIMDARK Edition, this document includes practically everything you need to build characters, equip them, run combat, engage in wilderness exploration, fight perilous foes and more!
