Now they have a kit to sell out to us E1 owners. We buy it, play it and write back some of the things we find unbalanced with the monsters and the heros. so that when they start pumping out the expanions with some of the E1 mosters and heros the errors and unbalanced powers/abilities will be fixed.
I don't think they're going to publish any 2e expansions that include monsters or heroes from 1e. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's EXACTLY why they created the conversion kit. It gives you all the cards you need for those heroes/monsters so that you can use them in 2e if you already have the figures.
if the cards have changed old players are forced to buy the new-developed expansions. well thats a way to make money. the white magic dice have changed to a defense dice, if the foto is right. this seems to confirm that. so 1st edition can be thrown in garbage completely.
That would indeed seem to be the case. Although I have no intention of chucking my 1e set right away. I expect even after I've had a chance to dig around in 2e I'll end up keeping the figures and tiles, at the very least. I might throw out all the old 1e cards if I never intend to play 1e again, but that's a decision I won't be making until I've seen and played 2e at least a few times.
conversion-kit with old monster and hero figures is just for homemade scenarios.
The conversion kit doesn't have any figures, just cards to use your existing 1e figures in the 2e rule-set. It doesn't make mention of converting any 1e quests, though, (nor do I blame them in any way for skipping that part) so us fans will probably need to convert those if we want to replay Narthak's end in 2e. =P
