Praise the Emperor! Cubicle 7 Takes over Wrath and Glory
When Ulisses Spiele took a shot at putting together a Warhammer 40,000 RPG they paired some pretty great ideas with absolutely terrible execution. Like ‘a dozen chops to the neck and the guy’s still screaming‘ levels of terrible execution. With this in mind, the news that not just the 40k licence but also the game itself is going to be handed over to Cubicle 7 – publishers of Adventures in Middle Earth and the latest edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay – is very welcome indeed.
If we’re being honest, all you’d need to improve on Ulisses’ effort would be evidence that you were basically competent at putting out books, but with their latest releases C7 have shown themselves to be adept at handling both licensed products and the messy Warhammer universe. Between WFRPG, Wrath & Glory and the unreleased Age of Sigmar RPG, the entire stable of Games Workshop titles now sit under one roof.
The folks over at C7 have already confirmed plans to release a revised edition of the core rulebook and hope to eventually put out all the supplements that had already been announced for the game. It’s unclear what this means for those who have already bought PDF copies of the Wrath & Glory rulebook.
If you’ve never taken a look at the current edition of Wrath & Glory you can check out our review here. In short, it was a damned mess, stuffed with errors and mistakes to the point that it was almost unplayable. There were some real gems here and there, but they were buried deep within piles of dirt.
Here’s hoping C7 can follow through on their promise and produce a game that truly captures the 40K universe.
