Well here is some things from Fantasy Flight that I missed out on with being sick and all. Very busy week over there and looks like their PR is in top notch form.
1. Well this first bit is a bit on the older then a week side but totally slipped past the radar. It seems like there is a new Warhammer 40k boardgame called Horus Heresy. Seem’s like it will be pretty epic. Only time will tell so better start saving those pennies for that eventual high price tag.
2. The Call of Cthulhu dice for Arham Horror are now in stores. Will definitely have to pick this up.
3. Cory Konieczka has a chat about the combat system behind Runewars. I hope that the card system that he is aiming for works out as well as advertised. Hopefully they will have some combat examples down the road.
4. Dark Heresy gets an expansion in the form of Ascension. Now you can become an inquisitor, a sage or an assassin. It’s supposed to have advanced character creation rules as well. And this all tells me that our group still hasn’t even played this yet. Must try it sometime.
5. A new chapter pack for A Game of Thrones: LCG is announced. It’s entitled A Sword in the Darkness.
6. If you want to know what’s on the road ahead for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay then check out the Sifting Through Shadows download.
7. You can now download the core books for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay for $25 on DrivethruRPG and RPGNow. However the PDF’s are missing the cards and the fancy dice that are essential to gameplay. It’s being advertised as more of an extra aid. You know being a computer technician I can buy a $100 book and get the PDF on the disc with examples programs etc. Why could they not do the same. $25 for the books is not a bad price and I would be more forgiving if the cards were included. Come on they are cards. All you would need to do is have people buy the dice as an add on. They still save, Fantasy Flight still makes lots of cash. It’s the type of situation where you think they do a lot of good thing but sometimes you want to smack them. Kind of like Wizards of the Coast taking their PDF’s offline.
