|This was a start|
Then after ten years... something changed at Gamers Heaven.
|Cover of the Limited Edition |
of the 2nd Ed Rules
You see they made the game even better. It was great, fantastic. It showed up in the normal rotation of game systems within our various groups. The books were bought, I even ran the last great adventure campaign from that edition for close to 10 months. It was awesome.
Then suddenly a storm arrived.
You see Green Ronin, a company born of the d20 OGL tsunami had updated the engine and was the game designer for the 2nd edition of the game. Fantasy Flight games bough the rights to publish all of the Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000 RPG material and make the worse mistake of their existence.
They put up a 3rd edition. I own it, I got it for free and I've yet to do more then open it up, look inside the beast and wonder what the fuck had happened to my game.
|Why does my RPG look like a Board Game?|
So they kept the 2nd edition rules for the 40k setting and its keeps getting pushed out bit by bit but with very little outside of of rules to break down the various styles of play between Inquision Lackey, Rogue Freighter Capt and Hulking Spacemarine.
Now Star Wars has just been given to Fantasy Flight. I'm thinking Warhammer Fantasy RPG 3rd edition is the one off. They make many of my favorite board games; Twilight Imperium, Game of Thrones (Board), Netrunner, Citadel... this list is again just another nerd dick measuring stick.
Instead I see this, like a thousand voices crying out and suddenly becoming silent.
|Hive of scum and ... you get the idea|
Yes. The game specific dice are back.
|That's no Moon!|
Yet when I saw those dice... it felt like Star Wars Galaxies. That didn't end well.
Well The mouse now owns the deed to the Skywalker Ranch. Lets see what happens next and if they sort this out like they did with the Marvel films.
Use the force Mickey...
