Warhammer has a world, a background to every race, a story to be told for every character. Turning Warhammer into a LCG is heaven for me, because I loved that concept in L5R (legend of the five rings) but I still hated that the l5r relied on boosters.
Its funny because when I was in highschool and there was no Yugioh or Pokemon...just Magic and L5R I decided to use my journal book for drafting ideas for a card game (instead of school work). It was just a dream and I knew that is all it would be because I was young had no art team or publishing company.
The concept that I came up with was essencially a LCG. My friends and I created tons of cards for the game out of index cards. Years later I got a call from one telling me that someone read my mind or saw us playing at lunch or on break because a game called Warlords CCG had released. It was identical to the idea for a card game that i came up with. The only difference was it still required boosters so it was still a CCG, where as mine was a LCG version of it. We came up with the stories and new cards for each race and cards and equipment available for the characters...who ever stole my idea for the Warlord TCG obviously missed the most important design for the game...NO BOOSTERS.
Anyways I am super glad that years later after Warlord has died to see FFG trying this novel idea for LCGs instead. I will be sure to buy this the day it releases to the public.
Keep up the awesome work FFG!
