I am a proud FFG client.
Your products have uncanny details, are fun to play and the company itself is very committed with the game community.
I was VERY excited that the Star Wars RPG game would be continued (or rather remade) by you.
I just heard the news on the announcement of Edge of the Empire and was heading straight to download a copy of the Beta version in order to read and give you guys an ASAP feedback…
It was with great surprise that I discovered that not only FFG was charging for the beta product but also it was almost U$ 30,00!
So, really, the idea is to charge us AND ask for feedback? o_O
I mean, I'd be GLAD to contribute with a symbolic donation to the Rebel cause, like U$ 5,00. Five, not thirty.
So I decided to write and see if there is any other sentient being that agrees with me. Maybe if enough voices join the chorus, we may be able to convince you guys to think this over. As a concrete example I give you the famous RPG Pathfinder - Beta version. It was free, the game developed with fans' help and is a giant on the field of fantasy. The final version of the product is sailing great, by the way.
So, here is a manifest for the Beta version of the Edge of the Empire to be released as a free product - or at least for a considerable reduction of it s price.
Thanks for reading this.
May the Force be with us all.
