War threatens the Old World. Its history is violence and bloodshed. Every nation, every empire, was birthed in warfare and grew strong on conflict. The Empire, in particular, is a warlike land, whose mighty armies are the envy of the civilised world. Yet as mighty as the armies of the Empire are, danger lurks within and beyond her borders.
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Omens of War, a brutal new supplement for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. The Blood God is amassing his legions, preparing for a savage campaign of conquest that will engulf the Empire. The hour of war is at hand.
Omens of War is a valuable resource for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay players and GMs alike, providing new options for martial characters and background on the military of the Empire and the legions of the Ruinous Power Khorne. Players will find several new careers in Omens of War, inspired by the Empire’s militaristic traditions, as well as over 50 new Action cards. The addition of mounted combat rules and horses as a new type of Follower will open new ways to engage your enemies, while new Enhance cards give you more thematic control over your fighting styles.
Game Masters will not only find extensive background on the Blood God Khorne and his legions, they will also discover new ways to challenge their players with Severe Injury rules. These deadly cards are similar to Critical Wounds, however they represent potentially permanent and debilitating wounds that combat in the Old World even more brutal. The Liber Carnagia: The Book of Blood also provides GMs with an all new adventure that will send their players into the thick of battle.
Omens of War comes with two new sourcebooks, over 50 Action cards, 20 Creature cards, 10 Career sheets, and 40 cardboard standups, as well as new Condition, Location, Item, Mutation, Talent, and Severe Injury cards. Additionally, Omens of War provides all the tokens, handouts, and other materials needed to run the included adventure. Prepare yourself for more Omens of War information, coming soon!
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is a roleplaying game that sets unlikely heroes on the road to perilous adventure, in the grim setting of Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy world. Players will venture into the dark corners of the Empire, guided by luck and Fate, and challenge the threats that others cannot or will not face.
@le_renard: the rulebook says that an adventurer will typically spend 3 silver/day for food/lodging. Divide that up as you see fit.
I guess this is the expansion we need to finally some basic animal stats or a list of useful prices ( a room for a night, a meal, etc... ) or did I miss something ?
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD! SKULLS FOR THE THRONE!
KHORNE CARES NOT FROM WHERE THE BLOOD FLOWS NOR FROM WHERE THE SKULLS COME!
I hope that there will be some great actions for warriors, swordmasters and wardancers..
Blood will flow..

Hey, the previous edition of WFRP didn't have any rules for mounted combat!
Mounted combat? Really? Should this triviality not be in the basic game instead 1.5y later? How impressing.
Not to be too crass but...
I am REALLY looking forward to this product... Would be nice if it was mistake free, granted.
It's about time! ;)
