FFG puts out some amazing material. I have purchased everything for Warhammer 3E even though I prefer 1st edition. Why? Because I wanted to support FFG and Warhammer in hopes that they would "see the light," keep the license and change it back to the more old school Warhammer without all the bits. My group and I cannot stand the bits and the D&D 4E'esque format.
So, I might be more of a rare breed, one who purchases the entire collection of something I do not like, just to support the company and the line.
It is my hope that something in that message will reach FFG and make some type of positive impact on the direction of Warhammer.
In my opinion, it is my hope that a loud cry of rejecting newer directions of pnp rpgs toward an anti-social, anti-imagination, mechanical, board game / mmorpg model and demand for more "old school" roleplaying (mind's eye theater) flavor of pnp rpg games will be heard.
Warhammer is a unique system with a unique setting. Sure, it has a smaller following than most of the high fantasy rpgs out there. But, the following that it has is very loyal.
I am about to introduce Warhammer 1st edition, The Enemy Within campaign to one of my younger (6 players ages 15-25) gaming groups. They have never experienced Warhammer and while I am influencing them toward an earlier edition, that is where the magic lies, so I feel it would be a grave disservice toward Warhammer and even FFG to run 3rd edition.
I hope you are listening FFG and I hope you do not give up on the license. I believe in your outstanding capability to do anything you do is first rate, top notch, set apart and a bar above. In my opinion, you goofed with Warhammer 3E, just as WotC goofed with D&D 4E, but it is not irreversible for FFG. WotC's mistake correction is yet to be determined since Paizo has claimed the throne with Pathfinder.
At this point, FFG does not have any Warhammer competition out there like WotC has to contend with. Games like Zweihander will be in development for quite some time and will never attain the support the Warhammer franchise has.
So, the question is, will you change course and make a strong attempt to capitalize on a better, more old-school, no fiddly bits Warhammer FRPG or will you drive it into the ground and quit on it?
Thank you for your consideration.
