Recommended Posts

Hard to tell how this will shake out, but according to this Beast of War post 

   http://www.beastsofwar.com/warcradle-studios/warcradle-studios-acquires-dystopian-firestorm-settings/

the intellectual property has been bought. If anything come of this maybe this sub-forum will need a name change.

Interesting stuff...

 

Short summary:
- Dystopian Wars and Wild West Exodus will be folded into a new setting
- Wild West Exodus will be part of the FSA background
- The supernatural elements in WWX will get scientific explanations (no more magic)
- Other factions from the Dystopian Wars universe may be introduced to WWX
- Armoured Clash returns as a 10mm game

I am not liking the lore changes in the dystopian wars verse that are being perposed by warcradle. Basically, the whole alternative WWI political state is nixed? Africa is a land battle sand box now where every land battle in the world will be taking place? And, all navel engagements have a gentleman's agreement to be fought away from land on the open oceans so that there is no collateral damage? what kind of feel good bumper cars war style is this!? am i hearing this correctly?!

what are others thoughts on this change? I hope I'm not just yelling in the wind haha

haven't been tracking the lore changes for Dystopia Wars. If what you say is true it's disappointing. Some of the most interesting (naval) DW games I've play included land. Islands, peninsula(s), shore. Just a big expanse of water sounds boring.

Played combined air/sea and air/land, never air/sea/land. Although I recall it being discussed (among the players present), and the conclusion being it would require a some what larger area of play and a bigger block of time.

FYI for those still interested... Two years on from this purchase, it's pretty clear that Warcradle's primary interest in Spartan was Dystopian Wars which is aligned/merged with Wild West Exodus.  They are still separate games, sort of (it's complicated) but both getting rebooted models and rules.  Selected Firestorm Armada models are available again in limited runs via Warcradle directly.  FSA 3.0 rules gets an occasional mention but nothing released as of yet.  The Halo property was lost in the sale (licensing) and there is no mention of Uncharted Seas yet either.
