  1. I couldn't agree more. Having a fleshed out bit of lore along with expansions associated for each region would be ideal. I just hope that sooner or later we get to explore the cold, snowy northern regions of Terrinoth! Runebound 2nd was my favorite game, and Frozen Wastes my favorite expansion, but I had to get rid of it unfortunately. So I'm hoping to get some good snowy fantasy eventually for my Runebound 3rd,
  2. Snow bound fantasy is my favorite theme. Do you think that Fantasy Flight may choose to remake Frozen Wastes, or at least do a similar snow themed expansion. I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    Solo play?

    My original copy of Runebound 2nd edition also says it is for 1-6. Single player was intuitive in the 2nd edition, even in all of the expansions. I've played The Frozen Wastes and Sands of Al-Kalim by myself many, many times without ever having to tweak or change a single rule to accommodate for solo play. 2nd edition feels like it was made for solo play. It honestly plays the best with only 1 to 3 players. Runebound 2nd edition is my all time favorite game (right next to Arkham Horror, also a great solo game) and this new edition seems to not only lose the intuitive nature of single player but also the overall atmosphere and charm of 2nd edition (in my opinion). I just don't care for some of the things they've gone ahead and changed. (quest "types", token battles, action points, etc.) It removes some of the simplicity of 2nd edition. Runebound was like playing a pen and paper RPG without all the complex work and time commitment that comes with the genre. This made it even better for solo play when you couldn't get a Pathfinder/DnD group together. However, with all that said, I think this new edition will do very well. It will appeal to a different, newer gaming crowd that has created higher expectations for games over the last 7 to 10 years. The slower pace of older games such as 2nd edition will no longer fly. 10 years makes a big difference in consumer and cultural expectation. I think this new edition will sell well with fans of Descent and other such games, which is great for Fantasy Flight Games as a business. It is the same reason Descent appeals to a newer age of gamer.
  4. Yeah, you probably won't be able to buy it at GenCon. They said it was for preview.
  5. I haven't been this excited for a game in a loooooong time. It's also nice to see a forum post without a bunch of negative troll like comments. Everyone complains too much. This game looks awesome and is going to be a great addition to the Arkham library. It's like a squeal to Arkham Horror but with such a different feel. Totally getting this as soon as it hits store shelves!
  6. It's great that they are doing a new game. I'm all for expansions, I love them. But having a new BIG staple for the Arkham line is monumental and exciting. I've loved the works of Lovecraft for years and Fantasy Flight is the only game company I found that seems to capture the true essence of the literature. This game isn't like Elder Sign at all. It seems to be more like a mixture of elements from Arkham Horror and CoC LCG. I love both those games and am excited to see this new "Sequalesque" addition to the series.
  7. I don't think it will replace Arkham Horror. If anything it feels like a sequel. I was sold the instant I saw it come up. (I was literally on the website and watched as it was posted.) If anything is Arkham Horror Lite it was Elder Sign. This is a completely new game with a completely new set of investigators.
