Holy crap! I have never seen a larger bunch of whiney assholes! The presumptiousness and sense of entitlement is so thick here, that you have to wipe it away with toilet paper.
Thanks for the insults.
I'm not a "hater". I don't like the new orientation of WFRP. So, I'm a "whiney assholes" ?
If you want a mesurate opinion (yes, mine. It's mesurate, since I didn't insult anyone), please read :
Please forgive my bad english. As you can see, I don't post. But I read when I can. What I just saw on the site...disturbed me. I will no longer buy WFRP products, and I'm a little sad about it.
Not because I don't like evolutions, or because I don't want to spend money. Just because what I liked in WFRP is now, and perhaps for some years, out of question.
I saw people saying that the only difference is a new way to play, that the fluff is the same, etc.
My problem with that is, justement, on the fluff. From what I see in the announcement, the first books will only contains things that already exists. So, there is, at least for me, absolutely no interest to buy this new game, since what I wanted to find in the books and supplements was the interraction between Warhammer fluff and the game system, as well as new, undiscovered stories and details.
They were room for things like Lustria, Far-East, all the regions between the Old World and the Far-East, Arabia, etc. I'm a little sad. Don't tell me tings like "go read novels and WB books". It's not the same, since I don't especially search saga, heroes and such, but details and background for a universe I like. Don't tell me "nobody ask you to buy this game", or "play the 2nd edition if you want". I have the 2nd edition, but I won't have more of it, no new things to know on unexpected areas or historical background. And since I don't want to buy books for a new system which will use the same thing that existing books, I won't buy later books that will, perhaps, study new areas and background details. Just because I will have no interest in it, since I won't have the first rule books.
I find that it's a strange decision, but it's FFG's. I'm sorry for myself and for others, mais c'est comme ça. I just hope that FFG will, in future, make good games that will tease me, as Arkham Horror has done.
Sorry for this useless and full of mistakes post. But I wanted to say a word, too. Perhaps there will be interesting things in fandom creations. It would be good to have entire areas fanbook for the 2nd edition, as well as those who want to play the 3rd could have their books. "
And I will add that I was very enthousiastic with the FFG's continuation of the game. I send mail to Bibliothèque Interdite, the french publisher of WFRP, to ask them if they will continue to publish them. The response was positive, and I was very, very happy. And now, I will probably never see Les Milles Trônes, since it isn't published yet (because of the graphical differences between french and english versions)...
And I don't speak about Shades of the Empire...did this one was ever sold ?
And I ask for apologizes.
