  1. I think you missed the point being that the expanded universe was in play rather than that marvel is also owned by Disney. Well that was my point at least
  2. That is also true and their is a thriving expanded universe product line. Revan figures etc
  3. A contact is a contract. The fine print is something we are not privy to. Their are other Ip properties that were done with kick starter or their equivalent, the expanse, star trek, judge Dredd. Of course this may bear no resemblance to the contract that ffg has with the house of mouse especially as had been noted that star wars is such an expensive ip. I just see such ambitious and fun things coming out of kick starter for tabletop rpg I thought maybe just maybe ffg had a chance to take on something ambitious. Anyways another fun one Torg the Nile empire wraps in 5 hours. They made it a pleasure to engage the product in this fashion. Live chats, live q and a, just nice to get some personality behind it all.
  4. A jovial turn on the position of FFG is in and people get all dark, beginning to think is not only FFG they have control over for people to get all dark over it lol
  5. Torg Eternity RPG has done a sterling job of expanding their source material and offering what many in house funded rpg would not, unlocking novels, counters, maps and celebrity authors etc. I personally think FFG could benefit with more fantastic elements and propose this on KS as a test to see if they have an audience for it. It would also serve as a wider platform on which to promote such products. Just my 2 cents.
  6. The attachment went beyond friendship and loyalty.
  7. He was in love with the robot dude...no telling what attachments it had:p
  8. JWP I agree has been very good at least initially with product releases. Though 7th 2nd ed does not have as good of set of rules as the 1st and I don't like the social shift in context in some of the content. I had to eye roll through some of the first novel but I digress.
  9. This was a horrible easily forgettable/regrettable movie going experience. The lead lacked all the charisma of Han, everyone in his scenes outshone the actor, pansexualising of Lando was ridiculous and Emilie Clarke was dull. The original directors train wrecked it and it was beyond Ron Howard to jump in the directors chair and apply the breaks to prevent it hitting that wall. I had hoped this was going to expedite Kathleen Kennedy's departure and hoped Dave Filloni would take the mantle but it wasn't meant to be. At least it put down a couple of dumb movies in development, namely someTatooine movie and Rian Johnson's Trilogy. They need time now to re-evaluate what works. This clearly doesn't hence the box office slump.
  10. Thats a shame because I've been on the receiving end of some high quality kickstarters, 7th Sea and Torg. I have also backed Torg: Living Land, The Expanse and Khitai. Torg has been the most impressive so far. Both in detail and quality. The Judge Dredd one i backed just a week ago is a finished product with a sourcebook. The game designer has done a number of interviews showing the finished product and the kickstarter was merely for a production run and was funded in 9 hours and has far surpassed that minimum. So yes i try to research who puts the stuff out there before purchasing. As for FFG i know they are a decent scale gaming company. But if they chose something more experimental and are concerned for a welcoming response then kickstarter may be a good forum for that.
