ZWEIHÄNDER RPG

Aug 1, 2012

One of the many projects we’ve been working on for the past few months is a bunch of character illustration for an RPG book called ZWEIHÄNDER, by Daniel Fox. The book is a bit dark, in nature, and seems reminiscent of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. Below is a little write up about the book –

ZWEIHÄNDER Grim and Perilous is a dark fantasy role-playing game, designed with retroclone elements from the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay tabletop system. Set for release in autumn of 2012, ZWEIHÄNDER embraces the dark and gritty nature of old school RPGs of yore while simultaneously providing many modern advances found in today’s roleplaying game industry. The finished product will be “world-agnostic”, universally adaptable for any low or dark fantasy campaign with similar application principles as GURPS. ZWEIHÄNDER will be made available as a print-on-demand product, physical book availability on Amazon and incorporate a digital initiative/living ruleset called “Grim & Perilous”.

Major influences include Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (all three editions), H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos, Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher novels, George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, the original AD&D Dungeon’s Master Guide, Small But Viscous Dog and a host of other kitbashed and/or supplements created by Liber Fanatica and the Strike to Stun crew!

Daniel hired us to manage and develop over 60 different class types for the book, along with almost twenty half-page illustrations. He was looking for a dark, gritty feel to the work, so we pulled in Ger Curti to work on it.

I’ve known Ger for some time and worked with him on several projects. Ger never fails to impress me with his mastery of pen and ink work, spotted blacks, and interesting characters. There is always a nice energy to his work as well, which really shows through in his pencils.

Below you can see some of the finals.
