I’m looking for…
I just listened it as I painted my Rebels and Marauders.
Was interesting to hear that you could have written the next edition of Warpath and I gotta admit that I’m partially disappointed that Cavatore takes his third round with it. But on the other hand, it’s his game and it would feel unfair that he wouldn’t write it (not to mention the burden you must have with other gaming projects).
I’m exited to see what the next Deadzone kickstarter will bring to the table. My personal pick would be story driven campaign focusing on a new faction (and maybe ONE model for each existing one). On the other hand I really don’t want to see any interesting KS this year.
Now that you mentioned Lost Patrol in the interview, could you answer why this cover wasn’t used as the cover, although it was printed in the bottomside of the package: http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic380830_md.jpg
This has really confused me. Also, are you aware of the “Patrol Lost” rules?
LP: IIRC the change in art was to do with the quality of scan we had available. The original design (smaller one that wasn’t used) turned out not to be print quality. Something like that.
I am aware of “Patrol Lost”, and I feel about it how most people would when their work is stolen and claimed by the thief as their own.
And another long time puzzler has been clarified. Sad that it was that way, the intended cover is really cool.
I had thought that Patrol Lost was meant as a tribute (or means to get hands to a really good OOP game), but sad to hear that it ain’t that way.
I liked the original LP cover better too, but this is an example of the sort of production necessities that happen all the time.
It is flattering that someone would so enjoy my work that they went to these lengths when it was no longer available. However, if it was a tribute then one might imagine that it would not simply present this all as either magically falling from the sky or their own work. The abuse of copyright and attribution are subjects that make me very cross, so I’d best stop there.
