Not sure... I side with Cursain. I like descent as it is due to the fact that I only need to shell out so much a year vs. Magic: The Gathering or Warhammer. As much as I want to see Descent become an eternal format, I don't want it to become a bleed either. I will quite this came faster then I started if that happens.
Lol do you own every FFG game? Why would you need this if it doesn't appeal to you? Simply don't buy it if it was made. This would probably appeal to a Warhammer crowd perhaps more but would also appeal to Descent/Warhammer crowd even more. That's still an absurd amount of people if advertising was done right.
No I don't own all of their games. Matter of fact all I currently own is Descent (While my friend has Betrayal and all of Arkham and a few subsequent games). That is already a bleed for an artist trying to pay for housing and a wedding ^.^;; I am poor. I love the game. I would want to support it.
The reasoning behind me not wanting them to go this route is that it would divide their attention with Descent. They are doing a good job with this. They are producing a quality product that is in demand. When one divides attention of one good thing into two thing, then often time quality is decreed. I know that from my own experience as an artist.
Also, they have a rather unique game. A stroke of genius, if you will. They took two popular game types (board game and story related table top gaming) and married them to make something new all together. Why, then, would they make something that isn't as unique that would require allot of their resources AND have to compete with an already established fan base? It would be very much akin to any adult card game trying to compete with Magic: The Gathering. While it might live on hype for a while, the adrenaline will deplete and the product and game will die prematurely.
I am not saying your idea isn't good. I can see where that would be something people might want, but is there a calling for it? Would the group of people interested be large enough to legitimatize the need and is that group going to be large enough to rival the already existing types of this game?
And I am poor ^.^;;
