I'll definitely be picking this one up, but the boxed set is pretty pricey. I'm hoping that a player's kit will be available separately.

$100? i'll certainly wait until the rules are in, and maybe some some demo mechanics and such. Not going to drop that much without knowing if I like the new edition.  I'm sure production wise its worth every penny. But if i don't like how the game plays, you couldnt' give it to me for free.

You do seem to get ALOT for your money.. 4 books, over 40 dice... sounds like its expensive to produce. Ill see what IG have it for in the next few months.

Sounds like you get a lot for your money. But then, FFG is known for people complaining about getting too much stuff and not knowing how to store it. The price is high, but my sticking point is not having an RPG group to play.

On another hand this sounds like a quite nice way to handle this kind of RPG. 

On another hand it sounds like monthly "booster" to add new artifacts and spell to "your" game. 

 

 

 

 

Luckily - I've drunk a lot tonight.

Let's hope it's the booze. Currently I'm refressing my browser like a ratcatcher on skaven brew. This is just so... "Hilarious" just might be the right word but it doesn't translate into any language in a way that would make sense as it does to mine. (We had this tv-show about a woolen rat called Hilarius, it was about singing mouse and his family... Maybe they too were skaven!)

Sorry... Don't Mind me. The Symbol of Lapin liha just looks kinda the "triangle of skaven". I'll shut up right now.

100$ sound like bad joke, it's too expensive even for FFG smooth & shiny release.

Come on! The box will surely be so huge that 100$ is a cheap price. :D

I cant help feel, you will be paying more, for more tools, to reduce the freedome given to you by any single book for the previous editions.

But without seeing a copy of the rules, who knows.
