BattleLore Meets A Game of Thrones
Hey, cool: I can still post.
While I like BattleLore a lot, interest in BattleLore among the SABG ranges from "I wouldn't ever buy it" to "I sold it at a huge loss."
C'est la vie.
Looks like FFG has some big plans, however. They have just announced a new game using BL mechanics set in Westeros, the universe of A Game of Thrones. Here's some info. Note this is not an expansion; it's a stand-alone game using base BL mechanics, and apparently adding and modifying heavily.
One of the distinctive features that DoW brought to BL was a family-friendly (some might say silly) atmosphere. FFG does not use this tone; their games tend to be much darker.
In the last year or so, I've managed to keep my new game purchases few and small. I'm probably going for this one, however.
It's unclear what this might mean for base BL, not that anyone here cares about that.
