(Updated) Games Workshop Concluding Deal For Licensing Rights To Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay http://grimandperilous.com/?p=1058#utm_source=feed&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=feed Thu, 26 Jan 2017 14:41:28 +0000 http://grimandperilous.com/?p=1058 EDIT DriveThruRPG now shows Cubicle7 as the distributer for all Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay products: Cubicle 7 has responded: Following breaking news from Bell of Lost Souls, Games Workshop was seen shopping a number of their licenses during the Licensing Expo 2016 in Las Vegas.

DriveThruRPG now shows Cubicle7 as the distributer for all Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay products:

Cubicle 7 has responded:

Following breaking news from Bell of Lost Souls, Games Workshop was seen shopping a number of their licenses during the Licensing Expo 2016 in Las Vegas. While there has been uncertainty whether the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay license was up for grabs (as it was not listed on their licenses), it seems that a deal has been struck to acquire it.

zweihander grimandperilous.com warhammer fantasy roleplay retroclone

It was just confirmed to us last night by GW’s licensing department that they are in the process of concluding a deal with a major European publisher for world-wide distribution rights to Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. While no other details were shared, we can only speculate which major European RPG publishers may have acquired the rights.

Much like our prediction from a few years ago, Modiphius Entertainment seems the likeliest candidate. Following two very successful Kickstarter campaigns for Robert E. Howard’s Conan and Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition, it would not be too far fetched, particularly since they seem to be gobbling up popular licenses left and right. This may mean that the next edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay won’t use a percentile system, likely adopting the company’s overwhelmingly popular 2d20 system. In addition, with several WFRP alumnus and Jay Little’s connections to GW from his time at Fantasy Flight Games as lead developer for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 3rd edition, it would make for a great fit.

Another contender for the license could be Asmodée Group, a French publisher. This would not be too far fetched, given their recent merger with Fantasy Flight Games. Details on the merger can be found here. Despite Fantasy Flight Game’s press release regarding the licensing rights, is that they have continued success with the Warhammer lines, outside of the tabletop RPG version. In addition, their forums for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay were migrated over to Asmodee in the last 48 hours (which you can still visit here).

Cubicle 7 may also be an alternative licensee. T.S. Luikart joined their team in 2015, who has a history with Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd edition and Black Industries. Cubicle 7 has a number of niche, ‘sleeper hit’ licenses – in which Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay would be a great additional to their book of business.

Speculation abounds, but we’re very excited to see the next version of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay.

Despite the news, ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG – the world’s first Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay retroclone published under the Creative Commons Share-alike license – is here to stay. If you missed out on our successful Kickstarter, you can still pre-order the hardback over at CrowdOx.

We also backed in many of the errors the community caught, and updated several rules in the book that were confusing. We are so incredibly lucky to have him onboard to bring ZWEIHÄNDER to market!

In the meanwhile, take a look at a few snapshots from our early proof of chapters 1-3. Dejan and our Mother of Dragons Milena have been working hard to whip this book into shape, and it shows. Note that we still have a long way to go, as we’re still working on font sizing, image nudging, borders and other technical changes for print. Check it out over at Kickstarter!

This also includes a massive revamping of Chapter 12: Bestiary.

For those who backed at the ZWEIHÄNDER! Tier, we have the swords on their way to the office, and will show you pics of them soon. By the way, if you didn’t have a chance to back at the ZWEIHÄNDER! Tier and live in the US, we have an option now available for you over at CrowdOx.

In other news, a few weeks ago, we brought on Matthew Pook (affectionally known as Pookie) as our editor & proofreader. He is a professional editor, working for Sixtystone Press and has edited titles for Chronicle Games, Autarch LLC, Cubicle Seven Entertainment, Miskatonic River Press, Modiphius Entertainment and Triple Ace Games. Currently, Pookie also edits the Age of Cthulhu line for Goodman Games and OSR titles for Lamentations of the Flame Princess. He also is a well-known reviewer, having published each week for a decade in Steve Jackson Games’ Pyramid e-zine. We are so incredibly proud to have an industry veteran on-board to professionally edit ZWEIHÄNDER. Even with this latest addition to our team, we are still estimating to have all edits complete before the end of November.

As of October 28th, the Early Access PDF went out to the public for free. If you have a friend who didn’t back on Kickstarter or didn’t do a late pledge, they can now download it for free over on CrowdOx. We will bring it live on RPGNow.com later this week.

Ok, now onto art stuff! Embracing the order/chaos idea from the book, Dejan has completely reworked our interior borders. For proof of concept, our ‘Mother of Dragons’ Milena has created a new mock-up of Chapter 2: How To Play. See the new layout and artwork over at our Kickstarter!

It took quite a bit of retooling, but fortunately, ZWEIHANDER’s ruleset has proven to be very accommodating to this approach.

Our play test phase begins tonight, to see how well they gel within ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG‘s framework. Providing everything goes according to plan (with tweaks here and there), we will publish these optional rules as a free PDF in the coming weeks, leading up to the print edition.

Did you miss out on ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG on Kickstarter the first time around? We are keeping Late Pledges open at CrowdOx until October 31st.

    zweihander grimandperilous.com warhammer fantasy roleplay retroclone

    With the announcement of Runewars Miniatures Game, one can only speculate if this was a planned move. As we all know, Fantasy Flight Games stopped producing products for their WFRP Third Edition line sometime ago. This leaves open a question of whether or not Games Workshop plans to relicense Warhammer – specifically the fan-favorite Old World – to another company.

    That being said, ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG – Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay’s spiritual successor/retroclone/loveletter/heartbreaker/OSR – lives here at GrimandPerilous.com. Call it what you will, but ZWEIHÄNDER will feel familiar to players of WFRP 1e and 2e. We funded over at Kickstarter @$61K, were featured on Forbes.com and are accepting late pledges at CrowdOx until October 31. You can even get a taste of our adaptation of 40K in the GM section with our Dark Astral expansion!

    Warhammer’s not dead; its world lives on through its fans at Strike To Stun and can easily be adapted to ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG ruleset.
