New DP and NG versions (was Land of Thunder)
I really like the idea of a core rule system with individual game
"extras". This makes updates much easier to handle. I would also like to
see the NG production standard at the same level as DP (color map, etc).
One issue I have is are the new versions aimed at collectors or players?
Ie are the reprints going to the collector type editions (think Divine
Right 25th Ann. Ed) or a "normal" edition. I would prefer the normal
edition as I see this a way of getting new players into Glorantha. Thus I
see the emphasis of getting the games out and improving NG rather than
spending money on redoing the DP map. (could only minor changes be made
rather than a full rework?) The flip side is that new players to
HeroQuest/Glorantha will see the DP map and may get confused and annoyed
by the inconsistencies.
For rules the big change I would like to see is more examples. There are
almost none in the (Chaosium) DP rules and some of complex issues (eg.
multi-hex combat on both sides) would be much clearer with an example or
On the monetary side of things, to overcome the upfront production costs
could a preorder system be setup to cover some of the initial costs? Is
it legal to allow preorder for a product that doesn't exist?
