FFG doesn't communicate directly with the fans (trust me, I've trolled every which way I could think of to bait them, but they have to stuck to their gunz').

 

I presume at some point in January they will make their special announcement how they're going to release YET ANOTHER convoluted/confusing entry point into this game.

 

Good thing is that other than an Elf project (which even FFG didn't have the courage to release), this game is pretty complete.  Combine that with LIBER FANATICA and other fan stuff, and you've got about all you need.

Yeah, essentially everything you need is released already. Though it would be nice to see a Print On Demand for each of the other Colleges and Cults, and that isn't to say there isn't stuff that could be done. What I would like to see is a Moot/Halfling set like Blackfire Pass for dwarfs.

What the game absolutely doesn't need is any elf stuff. In fact, if the game does get canceled, as the final act FFG should do before canceling is sending someone out to replace all the cards and pages of all the sets ever produced and change all the old elf content to halfling stuff.

Especially reading through the new Enemy Within Campaign I feel we got a good run with this edition already and I wouldn't be be bitter if they called it quits now. I hope, of course, that we'll see plenty more of material to come.

From a business perspective I wouldn't be too surprised if they decided that it was time to sell the rules again to their customers and this is usually done in the guise of a revised or new edition. I could accept that, too, as 'rules of the game' in rpg print publishing.

That said I'll start a new 3rd ed. group next Saturday that will hopefully be in for the long haul and so, entirely detached from any publishing schedule of FFG, I'll be playing 3rd. ed. for a long time.

I love the idea of some FFG ninjas breaking into peoples houses to remove all of the elf stuff! I would leave them some brandy and a mince pie if I knew they were coming.

In terms of FFG making annoucements if you ask them they tell you that WFRP will continue to be supported.  Unfortunately no one will believe them. It seems that the fans of this game (or at least the ones on this forum) wont believe anything until they are told it has been cancelled.  I guess it is something to do with the fact that during its lfe this game has been out of print for as long as it has been in print. Maybe people want a return to the status quo?


Give me more fluff and less rules

FFG wears silence like armor. You just have to accept the fact you wont get the community interaction you might from a smaller company like plaid hat games. The tradeoff is most of FFGs games are fun, thoroughly play tested and the production values are through the roof.

there is enough stuff released to play 3rd edition for a long time. i can safely say i own more content then i will get to play.

if you havent already you should check out the reckless dice podcast and liber fanatica.

most of the dedicated gaming stores in my area still carry warhammer 3 but its usually way in the back. paizo has pretty much taken over the top shelves while the masses wait to see if DnD 5 is going to be good.

For what its worth, I would NOT recomend the Hard back books.  The only thing i use the Players Guide for is the index.  I have purchased everything for the line including 2 core box sets.  We play with 6 pc's, and could have just used the free Basic Action Card Download from the WFRP 3 support page, instead of my investing in the second Core box.  I work a lot and am going back to school so I don't have the time or the desire to write adventures anymore, so I only use published adventures.  


I have read everything available with a few exceptions due to time constraints.  

My group uses the following.

 

Core set

GM toolkit (just for the screen)

Creature Vault.  ( I prep with creature and action cards so this has been very valuable)

Omens of War     (Severe Criticals, Horses, Mounted Combat)

Heros Call   (Expanded PC progression, New Races, New Spells/Blessing etc)

The gathering storm     Adventure

The Edge of Night      Adventure

The Witches Song      Adventure

The Enemy Within       Adventure

 

Ultimatly all of the products are great, I just don't use all of the info.  Furthermore one of the absolutly GREAT things about 3rd ed, is that the expanded rules are usually a couple of pages, just enough to explain a new concept.  I.e. Corruption, or Disease etc.

If you are planing on running this version for the long haul, I would recomend purchasing everything if you can.  It all has great fluff and is valuable.  The players guide does have improved explinations of rules and an "INDEX" which helps alot but is not at all mandatory.  If it came down to purchasing one of the Chaos God expansions or The players guide, skip the players guide.

Basically I would by the Hard Back books absolutly last, even after all of the POD expansion.

 

Just my 2 cents.  Hope this helps

 

Gary
