Thread: The Return!

I'd like to see a book covering all domains. Each country would get a small
map to show the names of the provinces.
I'd also like to see extra warcards, seperately available from the box.
Heck, I'd just like to see Havens of the Great Bay rereleased (I never got it)
and whatever Vosgaard was supposed to be.

It was just a joke. I would really only like about 5-6 products a year for
financial reasons. Mr. Stark and TSR should first release the new hardcover.
Then complete the series of Book of's or incorporate them into a hardcover DM
and hardcover player books instead of the one hardcover. These could be the
core books. Redo the Region books in a format similar to Vosgaard's
sourcebook but with a little more info for each domain (3-4 pages). Drop the
boxes, most of the color goodies, etc. Bottom line. If your going to
lose money at least lose money printing so much information that we can't
absorb it all. I buy everything with a Birthright label, but some of my
players only want to play in the Khinsai (usually ex-Al-Qadam (sp?)
players), the Haven's (those who want to play pirates), Vosgarrd (the
Conan followers), etc. Maybe this way domain sourcebooks would not be needed.
If you do print sourcebooks, limit the number and make them fairly interesting
realms Grabentod, Aftane, Danigau, Diemed. You might get around
this by letting Mr. Stark do a series of articles in Dragon detailing realms
in the travels of Arion Dosiere as he sends back his letters to his uncle. I
thought about doing this on my webpage, writing up one of the less documented
areas each month. Hire Darkstar to work on the Adura sourcebook. Keep Tony's
covers. Stress the Dragon articles and Dungeon articles. A small write up on
Grabentod might bring in some of the old savage coast players. A writeup of
some of the Khinasi domains might promote some old AL-Dadam players, etc....
Somebody mentioned publishing awnsheigh in the monstrous manuals....do it! I
bought the annual with the Cerilian Goblin, Dragon, etc... just because it had
Birthright. The Gorgon (though he really needs his own sourcebook), the
Hag, The Serpent, the Raven, show the non-disciples the big guns. Let them
think Iuz the wimp. Then crank out good adventures like the King of the
Giantdowns (that exact formula) and watch the masses falter in.
My thoughts: Set the core of the line down (mostly done already)
within a year or two (core books, book of's, region sets), year three to
six have this set: a few domain or small region expansion modules a year
(2-3), sourcebooks (Gorgon's crown, etc.) (2), and adventures between
published works (KotG) or Dragon (2 pub, 3-4 Dragon). Year Seven have modules
setting up and running a second Deismarr (players, think MASSIVE BATTLES, and
the importance of being in the BIG ONE, maybe your players became Demigods
out of this) Year Nine and Ten: Start over.
Thanks for letting me rant but I haven't stated my ideas yet.
