How disappointing. If you were going to have something to talk about with your newly acquired property, GENCON is the place to talk about it. If you don't have a high level marketing buzz plan that can be shared with your fanbase...that doesn't sound terribly promising.
* Ken noted on his Twitter that some negotiations were still underway for Trollhalla items.
* The guy who took the picture of the webbed sphere booth said that he chatted with the folks in the booth. They said they were still looking over the inventory and early in planning.
Speculation: Remember that Flying Buffalo had a substantial inventory of books, accessories, dice, etc. It seems logical that WS will want to start selling this ASAP to they can start to make money off of their investment. Before that can happen, all of the existing items need to be tallied, issued SKUs for WS's sale system, prices set, websites updated, and so on.
I can't blame them for not immediately jumping into new product plans!
Do you think we will get an idea of what's planned for the World's Greatest RPG anytime this year?
I believe Ken and Steve will keep us in the loop as best they can. Steve, and presumably Ken, are both going to remain in the know with regard to the future of the game.
As always, of course? This is all idle speculation and reality may be completely different than what I’m supposing.
We also have to face the fact that Ken, Steve, & Liz are not getting any younger. (Nor are any of us!) They're at that age where we may lose them to the next great adventure. Hopefully the IP is in hands that care...
Much as I hope they do keep us informed, and are around many more happy years, we may not have them to do so much longer.
