The game is very good and the Background is superb , it's the main reason I'm into the game and the only reason why I've stuck around.
OK ! Here's the HEALTH WARNING !!!
This is an English language of a French game. The French producers are slowly and I mean very slowly expanding it . There are plans for an RPG versionsometime in 2009/2010 - possibly.
Now to the biggest open sore for fans of this game. The English versions of the game expansions were originally promised for mid 2008 and have been steadily pushed back first to 3rd quarter 2008 then Nov2008 and now to Dec2008 with a nasty rumour - via a German website - that they've pushed them back till Jan/Feb2009. There is basically at least a 1 year delay between French release and English release.
The French have just released a further expansion and a non-collectable card game based in the Tannhauser universe - but don't expect to see these till late 2009 or sometime in 2010 or at all who knows.
The fan created stuff that has and is being created does a brilliant job of making up for the lack of official material. A lot of it is discussed and shared in the old forum and this new one.
You have been warned. The frustration felt over the delays is palpable and could be damaging to your health.
