      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

FFG PLEASE LISTEN!!! MORE RACES IN PDF PLOX NOW

48 posts in this topic

THat is all. I want to see other races fleshed out in PDF form. I don't care what line it's for as long as we can see some options for playing aliens and other different things. I'll accept that there will never be an alien races book or core. However I would still like some PDF style content. Look at Numenera and its glimmers.

 

I think if you adopt their style and use your own methods you can easily make small chunks of content that would otherwise not be profitable in a full book.

 

Thanks for reading. Sorry for caps in title. Super excited by Tau book is all.

Oh please, FFG doesn't read the forums. If they did, they would have disappeared me a long ti

Except their testers do. Who can pass on the idea if they feel they're worth mentioning.

Yes. Additionally, responsible for the different game lines do read the forums, even if they do not answer directly (if you open the community page, in the bottom part, you often see a FFG_somebody reading this or that forum)

I noticed.  I'm constantly being followed by someone under the alias Nameless2all.  The name does sound strangely familiar too.

FFG has testers?

Yes.  and writers, even.  Sometimes they ghost through and even troll the forums.

Writers obviously. Testers .. surprise me more. :-/

The fact that this was joke didn't register with anyone? Either I'm losing my touch, or someone needs to roll to acquire a Good Quality bionic sense of humour.

Shouldn't trolls be banned or something?! :lol:

It's a 40k setting.  If trolls were banned, Games Workshop would have to hire a whole new writing staff.

 

Nah, they would just move the to the already obercrowded legal section. Although some serious fighting would ensue due the IP lawyers have already undergone a rite pure thought under guidance of MPAA and RIAA (the blasphemous twin demons of copyright and patents)

Well, there already are rules for some races in "big books". Dark Eldar, Orks and Kroots, to be precise. The only unplayable race rite nou is Craftworld/Outcast Eldar.

 

I'd love to see some new races, though.

I dunno, there aren't any playable Newcrons or Tyranid-hybrids. Doesn't sound more egregious than Tau, so I guess those are next.

Because they have been considered for a new game-line. Whether they still are, who knows? For as long as there are no rules for them in any existing game, the chance is real.

Necrons and Tyranids won't happen.

 

Tyranids are hard-locked on feeding and have a collective mind, There's simply no way to add them that would make sense. Genestealers, while at least able to communicate, will still go for their main purpose of breeding, and also have brood telepathy. It's a bad idea to make PvP rpg.

 

The only Necrons that would be playable are Lords, Overlords and Crypteks. Of those, only Crypteks could have a reason to join RT crew. Lords/Overlords wouldn't move without their armies and fleets.

To repeat something I said in another recent thread: let's stop acting like the races with armies in the tabletop game are the only xenos in the 40Kverse. FFG should be mass-producing new xenos native to the Koronus Expanse, both to use as adversaries and as sanctioned xenos in RT crews.

Fear in the Eastern Fringe, if playable Newcrons are your thing and you're not averse to well-written house rules.

THe problem I always have with this is the moment I do use house rules, FFG pushes out official ones.  Though I still think mine for the tanks of the IG are superior to what FFG wrote.
