One of the challenges we have heard for new players to ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG is that the book is too dang big. Despite the simplicity of the mechanics and inexpensive price point, getting players to create a character from a 600+ page book to create a character is a big ask, particularly whenever a Gamemaster really wants them to try ZWEIHÄNDER.
We’ve listened, and today, we’re going to solve for it.
Grim & Perilous Studios is proud to announce ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG: Player’s Handbook. Coming in at a sleek 360 pages (just a handful of pages shy of the Dungeons & Dragons Player’s Handbook), this condensed version of the Revised Core Rulebook will contain the following chapters:
> How To Play
> Character Creation + Professions
> Skills & Talents
> Trappings & Combat
> Hazards & Healing
> All-new horizontal + vertical character sheets
We have an all-new cover featuring one of our favorite Professions, beautifully illustrated by Jussi Alarauhio. Plus, we’ll carry forward our new layout standards using sepia tones. The cover will come in a soft touch matte, using Grim & Perilous Studios collector’s print quality as with our previous books (which includes a ribbon, clay matte pages and smythe binding). Finally, it will feature artwork from Dejan Mandic – originally introduced in the Revised Core Rulebook – and freshly-illustrated borders.
We anticipate having ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG: Player’s Handbook ready for pre-order by December 2019.
