I am curious as to whether or not FFG would allow the re-creation of their WFRP3e dice by the fan "community", available to the public, at Zero profit, without a litigation nightmare.
It would be a nice "Sorry guys for the complete, total, and utter screw up that has been our handling of the Warhammer Fantasy RPG license. Since we no longer produce the custom dice that are REQUIRED to play and enjoy our product, we will gladly support any material or component reproduction that helps those of you that have invested tremendous amounts of your time, effort, and money into this game". Furthermore, it is our understanding that the fan community has shown minor interest in creating what is commonly reffered to as a "beginner boxed set". Since we have no intention what-so-ever of creating such a product, we will be eager to support any such product by the fan community to create one. If we, FFG, can have final editing of this boxed set, FFG would be happy to give it our semi official, quasi endorsed, nod on our Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay webpage. We do this because we have learned from our mistakes and now understand that holding an RPG license is more of a communication two way street with it's fans, and that this boxed set will help sell our Core Set and it's subsequent expansions and campaigns, thereby helping to clear the shelves of our warehouse."
"Thanks again for your support of this game, and we look forward to this new relationship with the customers that invest their hard earned money that allows us to keep our salaries and create new and exciting games in the future".
gameogre43 might not be angry, but I would be. The fuel to get back and forth, the per mileage maintenance cost on my vehicle, and my time have been negatively impacted due to absolutely NO fault of my own. I would want to be compensated.
The FFG dealer might not be angry, but I would be. A customer of MY store, due to NO fault of his own, was inconvienanced and negatively impacted by the purchase of a product through MY store. ANY retailer worth his salt KNOWS that it takes years to build a loyal customer and a solid reputation, and only ONE bad experience to destroy it.
FFG,… ORDER DICE, or Publicly state that we can, or Create an official ".pdf file of "stickers" available as a FREE download so that we can make our own.
btw: I have this GREAT car for sale if anyone at FFG is interested. It goes from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds and I really want you to buy it. I should mention that it has custom, proprietary wheels which are not made anymore. If you want to make and sell wheels for it I will sue you, but please buy it anyway,……
