    Personally, I think the 3rd ed has too many gimmicks, cards and dice pool, for me the game is about roleplaying and you don't need those things in order to do that. I know companies are always...

    Seems to me that they want to try and put their own stamp on the game. Green Ronin did an outstanding job with 2nd edition and it looks like FFG are trrying to 'dumb down' the experience for people....

    I ran a game of WFRP for a while. It stopped because of other commitments but I think it is way better than D&D. I made the game pretty gritty for the players. I also made them play humans which was...

    I agree with Magos about Power metal to inspire you!! Have been listening to Manowar, Dragonforce and much more to blitz through models. Slayer's the best though.
