Anyone out there know if a World of Warcraft RPG ruleset exist? If so, how would one such as myself get his hands on such a ruleset?

Thanks :)

World of Warcraft RPG is a d20 variant, iirc. I don't know if it's close enough to the core to use the 3.5e ruleset unmodified.

From what I have looked at, the WoW rule set is basically 3.5 with a few skill, rule, name and flavor changes. Skills like hide and move silently have been merged into stealth. Races have their own changes. Classes have been renamed, added and changed slightly. Magic is pretty much the same as 3.5.

This could be run using the 3.5 setting with minimal issues. I don't believe there are enough differences to actually warrant a full rule set. Just use an extension to change what you need to.

Thanks people. I'll look into using the 3.5 set. When you say use an extension to change it.. what is that?

Is there a program I can get that allows me to modify the ruleset in some way? If so where can I get my hands on it? :)

An extension is a set of code that overwrites/overrides the base ruleset. For a change to the 3.5e skill list this may not be too complicated, but will require some basic XML knowledge.

Looking at an OGL article on the differences in skills, it's probably not worth an extension and just modifying the default skills on each character sheet as you create them. The only differences seem to be the Stealth (add Stealth, delete Move Silently & Hide) and Use Technological Device (add the skill).

I might have to pull my module of the core handbook from the back burner if more people are looking at playing this.. Might give me a reason to finish the remaining half of that book...
