Run, don't walk on over to Grim and Perilous to check out the upcoming release of ZWEIHÄNDER!

From the site:

ZWEIHÄNDER Grim and Perilous is a dark fantasy role-playing game, loosely based on the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay tabletop system.  Set for release in autumn of 2012, ZWEIHÄNDER embraces the dark and gritty nature of old school RPGs of yore while simultaneously providing many modern advances found in today's roleplaying game industry. The finished product will be "world-agnostic", universally adaptable for any low or dark fantasy campaign (similar to GURPS).

I have little experience with Warhammer and its Old World so I really can't compare the Grim and Perilous artwork to its inspirational sources but I can say that the look and feel that we've seen so far reminds me of The Riddle of Steel. That's a good thing.


  1. Thanks for the mention, Nathan! ZWEIHÄNDER is indeed a "loveletter" to Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. Expect no heartbreaker RPG from our team - it is every bit as grim and perilous as the Old World!

  2. No problem, Daniel. I'm very much looking forward to its release.
