Jadrax, I can assure you I don't give a <insert appropriate expletive here> about "points" whatever those are, I don't post online often enough to worry about post counts or anything else along those lines.
And why start another thread? Because in my opinion it makes the point more effectively than putting a post in another longer thread where no-one will ever see it, I for one think the number of people who have started separate threads shows a depth of feeling that is harder to ignore and therefore a more effective way of expressing yourself.
Over Land and in the Firmament doth Chaose marche, and the Beneathe is not free from it..
Also this thread is not about how "bad" the new game is. We can't know yet if the new game is good, bad, or after the RCT Hoax even if it is real.
It is about the decision to take WFRP to brand new mechanics rather than just revise and improve the current rules. I for one agree this is wrong.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. - George Orwell
Keep in mind that WFRP has gone thru some Dark Ages where the game died, no publisher, and the only thing that kept it alive for over 20 years are serious die hard fanatics like myself. People kept producing fan material for the game they loved and kept it alive. These same fans are touchy when it comes to "their" game. When trying new and innovative ideas for a roleplaying game system it is best to do so with a new game as a test. If the system is successful then consider switching an existing game to the new system. Once there was talk about moving WFRP to d20 and you had the same reaction so I'm not surprised at all to the reactions WFRP3e is getting.
