The WFRP Rulebook (4th Edition) is a the primary rule book and setting guide for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (4th Edition) and was released by Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd in 2018.


The Fourth Edition setting has stepped back slightly in time from the previous versions and now takes place in IC 2510, with a variety of information from across the history of Warhammer. For instance Constant Drachenfels is firmly part of the timeline but the descriptions of the Elves and their gods are from the more recent 8th edition Warhammer Fantasy Battles and related material's background.

This Edition has a further update of the earlier percentile mechanics in the 1st and 2nd editions, together with new aspects such as Success Levels and Advantage. Characters can be from several races: Humans, Dwarfs, Halflings, High Elves and Wood Elves.

The book was also released as a boxed collector’s Limited Edition with a leather-effect cover of the rulebook.[1]
