WFRP4 - Winds of Magic (Cubicle7, DriveThruRPG)

I finally got some time to go through the new Winds of Magic (WFRP4) from Cubicle7. It was published few weeks ago (PDF version). Like previous editions versions it provides again various updated rules and information, and is also again little different than previous versions. Each and every one of them has little different focus on them detailing different aspects of magic. But, like other Cubicle7 sourcebooks, this is very good package of rules.

The focus on sourcebook is the Winds of Magic and Colleges. So, no Dark Magic here. Necromancy and Chaos probably will get some own sourcebooks one day (hopefully soon...). And also no foreign magic is given here (like Rune Magic, Kislev Ice Magic, Bretonnian Damnsels, Skaven magic, Greenskin magic...etc.) or Hedge-magic. Some of those have been detailed some amount in various other sourcebooks already published.

What does the book offer then? Well, still a lot. Here's some:
- Revised Spellcasting Rules
- New Spells and Ritual Magic Rules
- New Endeavours
- New Careers. Each Wind gets own career. Besides Wizards there are couple of other interesting careers. Also, each Wind is detailed, with various new rules.
- Magical Items.
- Magical Creatures (like Magical Constructs).
- Then different magical rules. Like environmental saturations, Storms of Magic, Leylines, Waystones, Arcane Fulcrums, Strange magical places...
- And finally number of personel, both possible allies and powerful nemeses.

Besides this sourcebook you should also check following products from Cubicle7:
- Sullasara's Spells off Unrivalled Utility (PDF). This offers additional spells for College Wizards.
- Blood and Bramble (PDF). Source for Witches and Hedgewitches.
- Archives of the Empire - Volume II (Sourcebook). It has chapter for Magical Items and Artifice.
