--> While you sleep, your genitals decide to leave you and run off north to the realm of Chaos, in their place you are granted a toothed orifice which stage whispers lewd suggestions at inappropriate moments.

** There's also a page of critical hit effects once you hit 0 wounds -- and quite a few fan-made expanded ones, including [[http://www.windsofchaos.com/?page_id=19 an epic 16+ page version written by a medical professional]] with quite a few eye-watering effects that makes ''DarkHeresy'''s tables look like a walk in the park by comparison.

* MadeOfPlasticine: Not as bad as ''DarkHeresy'' due to the lower power levels, but there is some ''nasty'' stuff on the critical hit tables with the highest level cleaving the offending body part right off/right in two.

* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial[=/=]ICouldSayItBut: The bread and butter of Bretonnian society according to the 2nd edition supplement. Many of the chapters on the dukedoms mention a number of regional quirks, most of whom [[BlatantLies most definitively do not involve cleverly avoiding the iron-bound honour culture of Bretonnia through insinuation and double-speak]].

Part ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', part ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'', part Cthulhu, WFRP shares in its parent setting's bleakness. A solidly [[BlackAndGreyMorality Grey vs Black setting]], WFRP is uncompromising in its grimness; instead of simply choosing a race and a class, you are advised to roll a dice for a race and a "career," which include heroic backgrounds like rat catchers, rag pickers, thugs for hire and tax collectors. After all, life isn't fair, and in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', it's downright sadistic.

* GunsAreWorthless: Averted. Guns are extremely deadly if they hit -- which reflects in their extremely high purchase price. Barring rolling up a soldier, your average PC will be lucky if he ever ''sees'' one.
** The operative words, of course, are ''if they hit.'' The Old World being the equivalent of 16th-century Europe, guns are not well noted for their accuracy or reliability (with the exception of Hochland Long Rifles, which are bloody expensive even for firearms).

* OldMoney: 12 copper pennies to the silver shilling, 20 silver shillings to the gold crown. Confusing as hell for anyone who grew up with decimalized money (basically everyone who isn't a Brit or an Irishman born after the mid-60's)

* {{Cult}}: The old world is polytheistic, all it's major gods command a cult to do their bidding. And their bidding is often very bloody, gods in Warhammer are not moral pillars or [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Anthropomorphic Personifications]] but tyrannical masters who will strike you down if you don't give them their due. As such, most of the important people of the empire belong to (often rival) cults, who for all their mutual dislike, hate chaos, foreigners and elves '''more.'''

* RagsToRoyalty: First the good news: one of the supplements has a campaign allowing player characters to create (or more likely steal) a principality of their own! The bad news: said principality is in the monster/bandit/Chaos haunted Border Princes, will probably make [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Lancre]] look vast and wealthy in comparison and comes with a court full of people just itching [[TheStarscream to do]] the player characters what they did to the last guy.

* VancianMagic: Obeys the first law, but not the two second ones. Also comes with the caveat that every spell has at least a 10% chance of driving the caster insane or causing chaos manifestations, successful or no. (The more dice you roll to cast a spell, the greater the chance.)
