    Warhammer Fantasy spells conversion

    So, I made a thread a week or so ago asking whether anyone had converted the WFRP color magic spells over to D&D-style mechanics, and didn't get any response, so I assumed that no one had. Well, I'm working on it now. It's currently about 35% done: all the petty and lesser magic, and the...

    [Wayfarers] Help me understand the Spell System.

    The rules explaining the Spell system are pretty sparse. It seems Vancian in one section (memorize each individual spell you want to cast) but then seems more freeform (cast any spells you've learned in a given level, up to your maximum spells per day) in another section. The given examples...

    Wayfarers vs C&C

    I am looking for a Fantasy system and 4E/Pathfinder don't suit my need. I need something less "combat/encounter" oriented and much less rule heavy. I don't want to waste an evening working on a single NPC. This said, Castle and Crusades and Wayfarers are in my sight for good options for a light...

    [RPG]: Wayfarers, reviewed by Metathiax (4/5)

    http://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/15/15591.phtml Sylvain Boucher's Summary: With its streamlined mechanics and ingenious classless but leveled character creation system while keeping a distinctly D&D-like feel, it is my opinion that Wayfarers can cater as well to old-schoolers than to gamers...

    So as the title says anyone play Wayfarers RPG? I was wandering around the Mongoose website and I saw that the new edition is available for pre-order.

    Wayfarers: Who's Playing It?

    Stumbled across this OGL slice of old-school the other day and was wondering who else is using it. If anyone is, I'd like to hear what you're using it for!

    Wayfarers: 420 Pages of Free (!) Fantasy Nostalgia?!

    I chanced upon this thanks to www.homebrew.net. I downloaded Wayfarers expecting very, very little, as it was free, and was blown away by a system that openly admits it's an homage to classic gaming, yet is injected with high-brow erudition for the older generation of gamers. At no point does...
