Darn, no Ratcatcher. I guess Ill just have to figure out to get the greatest weapon in the history of Warhammer via other means

Edit: I stand corrected. All hail the great hound of doom!

Looking good, I've never played a Warhammer RPG before (despite knowing a decent amount about the setting), this will be my on ramp for WFRP. Cant decide between a High Elf Wizard or a Human Warrior Priest of Sigmar for my first character.

I was going to say... no Rat Catcher would have been a deal-breaker for me! I'm liking the way this is shaping up and hearkening back to old school WFRP. Aside from D&D, this has always been my favorite system.

I just preordered this game, because any game where you can play a Stevedore is automatically on my list.

Roll a d8, and then another d8? I guess?

The Brass, Silver, Gold path is the (ascending) social status of the character.

Looks very promising. I particularly like the flexibility between levels, careers and classes. Well done, Cubicle7!

Well... it's traditional that you don't *chose* your career. You may have dreams of being a warrior priest of sigmar, but you're a ratcatcher!

P.S. Ratcatchers are awesome.

Do we know how exactly the Brass->Silver->Gold path works? Anyway, this looks pretty cool!
I would say it has to do with the character path, look at the STAT BLOCK, the colors. Would not be surprised to find you have to spend points in those abilities to move on to get to the career you are looking at.

Traditionally, you chose your class (old school: Academic, Rogue, Ranger, Warrior) and then rolled for your actual career. You could also, within reason, switch to another career in the same class for one or two advances' worth of XP.

I think that was in 1e. In 2e you rolled twice, picked once. There was no "class" like this (that I can remember). This method was re-introduced in the career compendium - a book with... issues.

Yeah, but we were talking about the traditional way of doing it, not that new-fangled Green Ronin stuff.

Counterpoint: Ratcatchers are really just conveyance vehicles for the awesomeness that is the Small but Vicious Dog.

But really, Ratcatchers are awesome, too; all those gloriously scuzzy beginning classes are what makes Warhammer what it is. The people that just want to start off as Troll Slayers are missing it.

P.S. Ratcatchers are awesome.
