Which ‘dead game’ would you like to see reborn?
Until the recent announcement by Cubicle 7, my answer to this would have been Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. It had only recently been ‘killed’ following what must only be described as an audacious but ultimately failed experiment by Fantasy Flight Games.
Having seen what they have done with The One Ring, and with murmurings they are looking at a setting and tone that fits somewhere between first and second edition, well … plenty to get excited about.
I say that with caution though – I’m still to be convinced that the d100 model from early editions is best suited. I’d like to see the grimdark tone kept, but a system that lends itself to more narrative pace and less roll-playing is what I’d hope for.
If that’s not feasible, I say let’s leave the dead games in the ground and leave room for new game designers to take us on different types of adventures.
