WFRP 2nd Edition Core Rulebook
« on: June 07, 2013, 11:03:01 AM »
I'm getting desperate for a new copy of the 2nd Ed core rules.

The prices I see online are ridiculous. £100 seems to be the minimum.

A digital copy is of no use to me, and why you would pay $25 for one is beyond me.

I was hoping to pay something around the £30 mark. (inc. P&P).

Any ideas?

Check your local comic book shop.  Or just keep checking on ebay and bidding on stuff.  I've seen some used ones for less than $50. 

If none of that works, maybe just print out the PDF at a print shop and make a nice booklet out of it?

I second Forganthus' suggestion.  You can often get the PDF copy of an RPG supplement for cheap then spend a little extra to have it printed out and spiral bound.  It's not the same thing, but it may be the best you can get without spending a ridiculous amount of money.

I see how that might work. But I have no way of downloading that PDF. Unless the local printing/arts shop would do that for me?

And $55 is still quite a lot for that book. If there were a copy for around $40/£30 I'd bite.

There are no comic stores close to where I live.

Kassy, go to ebay and search for the book by title, you might find a secondhand version that's way cheaper and should be within your price range.

Kassy, there are many print on demand outlets that will print out anything you send them.  You email them a file, they mail you a stack of paper, possibly even bound.    If you have a local Fed-ex/Kinkos, they can print it for you.

You just need to make sure they can print it out and it will be acceptible to you.

Aha! Many thanks to you Moonhunter!

@Moonlake, ebay, Amazon, etc they are all selling the book at WAY above reasonable value. Especially some deluded sellers who in their own mind believe it is worth more that $180..
