A simple combo poll this time, tracking how many of us plan to engage in the Old World, combining all the faction options and three play style options at the bottom. Don’t forget, you can play both casually and at formal events! Pick as many factions as you plan to.
But if you don’t plan to play the Old World, choose ONLY that box!
No kidding - you might enjoy some of my other polls, like the fantasy gaming systems one, but again it’s not exactly shocking stuff.
For me this one helps in understanding how much bandwidth community leaders can put behind TOW without losing step with the average Daemonsmith on the street.
It’s clear that the PDF will be big news and that many of us will be working with it over the next decade, and given the casual, house-rules-friendly environment most of us are gaming in then it will be worth the effort to build on and iterate.
The thing that has surprised me the most is the number of new members or lurkers who have signed up in the past week, both on here and on Discord (hi!), despite our explicit consignment to PDF history.
Clarification: I won’t be playing it in the foreseeable future, but mostly for the very unspectacular reason that I won’t have enough spare time to get into a new system. That may change down the road, however. It’s great that Chaos Dwarfs will be represented, and I wish everyone lots of fun with TOW!
That’s a great attitude. Ultimately they can never stop us playing whatever edition or system we want. Having the vintage minis back on sale is great and so is getting a load of new people into rank&flank.
Definitely the right call, I was intending formal event to mean it’s open to the public and has some degree of formally codified limitations. The key for me has been to understand how many people are playing in an environment where house mods to the PDF rules would be applicable. Unsurprisingly given our faction history, looks like a big majority.
