      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

Regarding the Shadows of a Black Sun adventure.

127 posts in this topic

Hello, everyone! I hail from New Zealand and am new to the Fantasy Flight community and it's forums. I was wondering if any of you, particularly the moderators (FFGMark and FFG_Sam Stewart), know if the "Shadows of a Black Sun" adventure will be released as a free pdf on the Fantasy Flight website once the free rpg day on June 15th is over. Thank you all.

I know that FFG has usually released their Warhammer 40L Free RPG Day offerings as downloadable PDFs, but I strongly doubt that the Games Workshop license agreement carries with it the same restrictions that the Lucasfilm one does.

However, seeing as how it's not a "for sale" product, I'd figure the odds are good that if FFG can manage to have it available as a PDF download, I'm sure they'll do so.  If nothing else, it helps generate more buzz for EotE, which is most certainly not a bad thing by any stretch.

Thanks very much, Donovan Morningfire. The reply is very much appreciated! I really hope they can and do decide to release the adventure as a pdf! It would be a shame to miss out on getting the adventure, since I won't be able to be there in person (living in New Zealand and all)!

Yeah, I'd certainly like a PDF version of that as well. I'm going to be missing Free RPG day as well. On a government sponsored tour to SW Asia. Really looking forward to getting home and rolling those dice!

I hope this comes my way too, although I doubt that it will. It's too much to hope for that my FLGS will actually get this - they've changed their profile over the last few years, more comics and Lego now than games - granted they always had more comics - they have so few rpgs its depressing. Times are a changing or whatever. It saddens me.

I hope I can get this as a PDF or that they can send it to me - I'll pay for shipping certainly.

I really hope they go the route of providing a PDF for it, particular as it's not a profit-making supplement (but, of course, there may always be restrictions on what they can and can't do with it).

At the moment, I'm running my own play-by-post EotE game, and I'm always eager for more material to help me round things out. This adventure sounds just right!

I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens after the free RPG day. I hope that after June 15 we can get an official response from Fantasy Flight Games as to whether or not they can release the adventure to us as a free pdf. I certainly hope so! The more adventures the better!

I know when WotC had the license, they could profuce free PDFs, but not sell them.

FFG already have some PDF support materials up (character sheets and an extra adventure for the Beginners Set), so I think there is some evidence that the same sort of arrangement might be in effect.

I'm also hoping it goes up online - also living in New Zealand, my only other option for getting a copy is paying through the nose on eBay… or finding a kind poster on here willing to snag me a copy from a US gaming store… (hint, hint).

I'm hoping for it to be online as well. The closest store that is hosting an event is over an hour away and there aren't any other stores within three hours.

For those of you who are concerned that you won't be able to get copies (either pdf or print), Noble Knight Games usually lets you add the free rpg day stuff to online orders for about .01 each (their system won't let them charge less, I think).  I think there is a minimum order, however.  That's how I get the free rpg day stuff I miss out on.

Thanks for the head's up MrBaldwin.  I have to be out-of-town for a graduation, so I can't get to my local FLGS. Popped on to Noble Knight, found an old book I've been looking for at a pretty good price and bought the Star Wars adventure for a penny. Great find!

Thanks!

Fingers crossed for a PDF version then. My players have just had their first contact with Black Sun, although they don't know it yet! (mwahahahaha!)

I think I saw something on Twitter from a staff member of FFG saying that the module would be available after Free RPG Day, but no indication of when that might be.

Also, I know from one poster over on the d20 Radio Forums that if you buy at least $15 worth of merchandise from Noble Knight Games, they'll throw in a Free RPG Day item of your choice, as that poster had bought an older book and selected Shadows as their bonus item.

Yup, got my copy on the way. There are a lot if great items you can pick up for $15 from them. Just be aware the item has to total $15 or more minus the shipping charges. Yancy

Picked it up at my FLGS, ran it that night with two friends in town (brand new to tabletop RPGs) and another friend who had played the beginner box (also pretty new to tabletop RPGs). A great time was had by all, and the trandoshan leaping over a firey pit of molten metal to tackle a particular jetpacking opponent was the highlight of the game. Two triumphs were on that roll, so he crushed the jetpack and the blaster upon landing.

 

THANKS FFG! =D

I am so upset because apparently all the stores in my area (Columbus, Ohio) are too cheap to participate.  Not a single one.  As a result, I missed out on both items I wanted.  One of the stores in my area advertised they were going to participate then when I called them on the 15th I was told they didn't realize it was on the same weekend as Origins so they went to Origins instead.
