Since we revealed the news that will be publishing Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying games there has understandably been many questions. We are delighted to answer the most asked questions today and assure you that we will update you as much as we can as we progress!
Warhammer 40K is a huge chunk of Cubicle 7’s gamer DNA so we are all incredibly excited to build on the long legacy of 40K RPGs. C7 CEO Dominic McDowall has been a 40K fanatic since the first edition, and so is absolutely delighted to bring C7’s brand of roleplaying to this amazing setting.
So let’s dive into the questions…..
- I bought the core book before the announcement, will I need to buy it again? No! We love Wrath & Glory; it’s the perfect system to jump into adventure in the Age of the Dark Imperium. We’re not going to change the game, so if you own a Core Rulebook it will be fully compatible with all of the adventures and supplements coming soon.
- What exactly is included in the revision, how much will you change? As with any game, there has been feedback on Wrath & Glory since its release, and we’ve listened. Our writers are making sure the epic world of Warhammer 40,000 oozes off every page, and we’ll edit any text errors and implement errata. We’re going to take some time to revamp the layout for maximum readability, whether you’re using a dataslate or a cogitator. We’re working with Warhammer 40,0000 Roleplay luminary and original game designer Ross Watson to bring you streamlined character creation, whilst retaining the depth of the original system.
- When will the revised core book be released? We’re aiming to have a PDF available in September, with a physical release in November.
- What is timeline for the other releases? Our plans are to begin releasing supplements at the start of next year.
- Will C7 change the art for W&G? The vast vault of Warhammer 40,000 artwork has illuminated and inspired gamers for decades, and we’re excited to add to it where we can. We may change some of the Wrath & Glory artwork and will continue to use classic images from the 40k archives to make the Revised Rulebook as inspiring as the Uplifting Primer.
- How involved is Ross Watson? Ross Watson is heavily involved in the writing and design of the Revised Rulebook – nobody knows the game better.
- What are the differences between Dark Heresy and W&G? The original Warhammer 40,000 Roleplaying system used d100s and was focused on a particular part of the setting, like the lower levels of the Inquisition or a Rogue Trader and their retinue. Wrath & Glory is a more accessible d6 dice pool system that will feel instantly familiar to any 40k veteran. The characters you play can be from any part of the vast universe you want; love Space Wolves, but your best buddy can’t wait to play an Aeldari Warlock? That’s fine in Wrath & Glory – and you can bring your Commissar and Hive Scum friends too!
