Although I have received the following (and standard?) reply on a similar question via email already:
"Thank you for your question and interest in Fantasy Flight Games! We do not accept unsolicited games, game ideas, or advice on our current games as we are rather preoccupied working on so many projects with our in-house developers. We also do not do any consulting on game ideas. We appreciate your understanding. Take care!"
I would like to start this topic again, now more openly.
IMO, the POD product series can be easily utilized for RA and there are many players out there who would appreciate such addition. I know that its cards are somehow of a lesser quality, and thus cannot (or should not) be combined with the rest of original cards. But it is not necessary, actually:
- the Event cards are all stand alone, so no mixing here
- the scenario Neutral cards can be either reused from the current ones (a lot of options here) or they can run in a similar way like the Promise of Riches (from the O&A expansion) is designed
- and also, there are still other interesting options on what can be added here (like buildings, heroes, lairs/dungeons etc.)
And, there is already some fan-made stuff that can be incorporated somehow (be it found under this forum, on BGG or somewhere else). In example, I would love to see the polished Civil War in Terrinoth scenario as the original one (by Brian, see here or here). It provides a full solo experience, yet with the PvP abilities. Some work is still needed there, of course.
The other interesting way(s) for any POD expansion could be the addition of buildings or heroes to neutral area, which can be then bought for the gold instead of influence (or both) and which could provide various effects for the player (be it in combat or outside it). Also, I would love to see some kind of "raid" scenario, in which the player(s) would be attacking some neutral dungeon or citadel controlled by one of Enemy, which is hiding behind its minion first... (some interesting ideas could be find here or here).
But - this topic should not be about what should be added primarily (I respect the above "policy" here) - it is about pointing out this option more publicly and to see whether it is possible to open further discussion/support for it.
