  • EDITORS NOTE: Welcome current, future, and prospective players! I'll be attempting to flesh out this wiki for the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying Game. This will be specifically for the second edition of the game.

Please feel free to contribute as if I do this myself, it will take quite ( a lot) of time.

I'm still deciding how I want to split this wiki up and not just dump a ton of information up front so, changes to formatting may be a bit jarring in these early stages.*

How the Dice Mechanics Work

A thing to note about dice in WHFRPG, is that the system uses a "percentile" based system. Don't worry, put the calculators away and wipe up the sweat. It's easy stuff, and when you're using the rolling system provided by, it makes it even simpler than it would be if you were playing offline. Here's how it works:

Your character will have a list of traits, or stats. These are things like Weapon Skill, Ballistic Skill, Strength, Intelligence etc. Theses stats or "characteristics" as the game officially calls them, are rolled up during your character creation process. Now I'll explain more about this later, but for now, Let's assume you have a character with a Weapon Skill of 30. The way dice work in this systems is that you roll d10's. Sometimes, you will be asked to generate a number between 1 and l0. To do this, simply roll one die and read the result. When you roll this way, try to roll as high as possible (unless stated otherwise)

The other type of dice roll in WHFRPG is called a percentile roll. A percentile roll uses two d1O to create a number between 1 and 100. Now you *may* be tempted to say that you can just roll a 1d100 and be done with it. But no, do not do this. There are many times and situations where you literally need both numbers separated. We'll come to those situations later, but for now... just roll the 2d10, and the chatroom roller will add them together for you anyway.

TL;DR - Roll 1d10 for simple things, and 2d10 for things like attack,and skill checks, xd10's for spell casting (it's up to the pc how many to use)
