  1. I sent an email a day or two after the announcement that the audit had been finished and just got an email back today stating they were going through structural changes in their customer service department. I imagine that is what's causing the delay. I could whine and complain like others on some of the various message threads, but what's the point? It sounds like they have enough to deal with on their end; and I figure, as long as I eventually get the needed replacement components, it'll all work out. They're shipping them to me free of charge, so I feel the wait is warranted. I'm not saying you're complaining, but I've seen a lot of it going on. Hope this bit of info helps.
  2. I did it once without too much issue. We had one extra player and, as Keeper, I ended up just taking an extra Threat token during my turn. It worked out pretty well, but I would advise playing one of the larger map scenarios. We played "The Green-Eyed Boy" and it was fine, but I can't imagine playing "Fall of House Lynch" with more than 2 or 3 investigators.

I wonder if the investigators travel through space, as well as time, into different locations. The alchemy puzzles look cool too. Time travel obviously will be the same as travel between two dimensions in season of the witch. Just an event which transports investigators and places a ladder being a link between two times/spaces/dimensions. Oops. Thought I hit "quote". Anyway... I assumed that much, but I'm wondering if actions in the "past" will affect the "future".

  5. When it comes down to it, that's the risk the Investigators take. When my group played this scenario, I let them know off the bat that a certain room would end the game in my favor (it was our 2nd time playing), and advised heavily that they pay attention to clue and heed their warnings. They ignored me and as they were nearing the room, one of them saw me look him dead in the eyes and shake my head slowly (I didn't want to end either. It took forever to set up). Later on, that same player ended up being bent to my will with a Mythos card. He entered during the Climax as he was the only one close enough to win or lose the game for the Investigators. Just try to play as many Mythos cards as you can in that scenario, or don't pick clue 1B.

  7. I'm antsy too. There was so much information released at GenCon, but suddenly that flow slowed down a bit. I check back daily hoping for more news.
  8. The completist in me would really like to get 1e and later all of the expansions, but I think I could be just as happy starting with 2e.
  9. I could see that, but I'm not sure how viable it would be for FFG to make them. Although, if they decided to do that, they could make it a print on demand item.
  10. Haven't played ST yet, but I think I might like the story premise a little better than SOTW. However, SOTW was a lot of fun. Yeah, you really can't go wrong either way. I'll get a chance to play ST in a few days, so I'll update here on that one.
  11. Just got my copy of The Silver Tablet. Definite differences in texture and clarity. The cards still look great and work just fine; just a bit slick is all. Can't wait to get this played.
  12. Also, on a simpler level, you don't have to search your deck from the box when gathering cards to seed throughout the board. You already have all of the cards you need (minus a few of the Keeper Action cards and attack cards). The first Season of the Witch game we played was set up much quicker than previous games.
  13. I thought about it for a while, and I would eventually like to see a campaign expansion filled with a ton of new location tiles and perhaps one or two large enemy figures for the end of the campaign. Imagine starting in Miskatonic University and then traveling the world in search of artifacts and strange locales (Egypt, Antarctica, etc) in search of horrifying truths. I imagine it done in such a way that the game scales depending on whether the Keeper or the Investigators won the previous game. All the campaigns would eventually lead to a final confrontation with one of the Great Ones (Yog-Sothoth, Nyarlothotep, Cthulhu!). Oh man, I want.

Core Box, WoD, AoD & RtL are "Not available" in the catalog Well, yeah. When I started the thread it wasn't the case, so I went with that information at hand. I still don't think it's a huge deal. There are a some game stores in my area that have them, but I don't plan on getting them anyway. I'm fine with starting from scratch with 2nd ed.
  15. Hellfury said: causeitwasfunny said: Like I said, I really don't see a problem with starting out with only 8 characters. It's not just about 8 characters. You are missing the point. My argument is about the entire plastic content. It's cut straight in half for nearly the same price. As for proclaiming plans for their product. Thats your assumption of my statement. I think if you look at the precedence that FFG themselves have made over the course of YEARS, it doesnt take an employee of theirs to understand much of how they continue to support or not support games. I just do not see the reprint status looking the same next year for this game. It will likely be all 2nd ed stuff. They want people to buy new 2ne ed stuff, not spurn 2nd ed and continue to buy 1st ed stuff. Right, but if you'll re-read my original post, you'll notice that I made a point to go over more than just the plastic in the game. You're not just paying for the figures. You're paying for art design, play-testing, working out the streamlined rules, etc. So, I hope you'll pardon me, but I think you missed my initial point. Speaking of plastic, just to reiterate my point on value, I also made the point that if you already own the other games (which, obviously, doesn't apply to everyone) you can purchase the conversion kit for around $20 and now have an additional 38 heroes (plus promotional heroes and the 4 from Dungeonquest) on top of the initial 8 to play in 2nd ed, as well as all of the monsters from all the games (which I'm not going to bother to count, sorry). I know you're comparing only plastic figures that you purchase in boxes you initially pay for, but if there's a way to include figures in two separate games, I'm sorry, but that is added value anyway you slice it. Also, I'd like to point out that you're again going over the possibility of FFG not reprinting 1st ed. While I did say that was a possibility, I also said that 2nd ed. is different enough that they would have the opportunity to continue printing 1st and reach multiple audiences. The fact that the conversion kit exists only assists in that line of thinking as it allows those picking up 2nd ed. to try out 1st if they had never played it. I never made a definite statement one way or the other. I only spoke to the possibility. On top of that, several expansions for 1st ed. are listed in their "Upcoming" section, which would again lead me to believe that there is a continued interest in supporting it; at least in the near future. So again, respectfully, unless you work for FFG I wouldn't recommend making a definite statement without backing it up. (e.g. "They want people to buy new 2ne stuff, not spurn 2nd ed and continue to buy 1st ed stuff"). I say, for the time being, they can do both if they want to. That's all. Edit: As of now it looks like the Descent 1st ed products have been removed from the "Upcoming" section of FFGs website. Now, this would push me to believe that they may not continue printing 1st ed. However, I still stand by my statements as they were written using information available at the time.
