Zweihander RPG - Monstrously Large Tome in the Warhammer Vein

I only recently learned of the Zweihander RPG, from Grim & Perilous Studios, but let me tell ya...this thing's a beast! 2017 is shaping up to be a very interesting year for alternative fantasy RPGs and this one is no exception. At 692 pages this is a monster of a book, but from scanning the PDF it appears to be very complete.

Zweihander appears to be an "inspired" retro RPG based on classic Warhammer Fantasy Role Play (mainly 1st edition and 2nd edition influence it looks like). For those of you unfamiliar with this style of fantasy RPG, it's nestled deep in the grim, gritty and dark domain of a grimy, plague-ridden pseudo-Europe  where life is both cheap and hard.

I've got the PDF but the POD is on the way, after which I'll have proper time to absorb it (let's me catch up on Dungeon Fantasy while waiting). I'm not sure how much longer this promotion is on for, but if you'd like the print edition go support Tenkar's Tavern through this link for a specialoffer on the print copy for only $44.99, which is discounted from $59.99. Also, the PDF is only $13.00 right now.
