So Warhammer Underworlds:Shadespire is set to release in October. I'm curious how admins/mods will approach its release in regards to forum placement.

Direct all posts to be placed in the GW specialist games subforum? Add a section in AoS subforum? Wait and see its popularity and adjust the forum as needed?

The specialist forum is probably the easiest option, but I wouldn't say no to an expanded AoS subforum!

I realize we still got time, its just a thought I had while reading the Shadespire rumor thread. It'll be here before we know it though, and it may be a cluster when folks get to building their warbands/decks and want to discuss strats. Some guidance on where to post would be appreciated!

Probably the Specialist Forum up until it's proven popular enough that it needs it's own forum?

That certainly seems like the best fit to me for starters - I'll also be interested to see if it takes off, but if so it wouldn't make sense to bundle it in with AoS, regardless.

I don't personally think we'll see it eclipse other specialist games like Blood Bowl / Necromunda / etc, but let's see

Wouldn't it be better to split the "other GW games" subforum into an AoS sub and a 40k sub? That way you have Warhammer Quest, Blood Bowl, Gorechosen and now Shadespire in one area, but Necromunda, HH games, Deathwatch, etc in their own section? It'll make it easier to search whether you want sci-fi or fantasy.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Dakka's policy on forums seems to be 'if they come, we will build it'. Yakface and legoburner need to see if there is enough traffic to split the forum before they go through the work of doing so.

I think it's also because of the risk of spreading discussion too thin and this harming, not helping, the section. We did split the Misc Games section into SciFi and Fantasy, which I personally really like. That way I don't have to get any peanut butter in my chocolate

So do we have an 'official' answer as to where Shadespire threads are to be posted? AoS General or GW Board Games?

For now, please put threads about Shadespire in the "Games Workshop Board Games & Specialist/Legacy Games" sub-forum (what a terrible name).

Please also use the [Shadespire] tag in the thread title.

Thanks!

On a surly Warboar, leading the Waaagh!

I feel like I've suddenly entered the brozone layer.

I actually ran through Shadespire while I was at my local GW yesterday doing some hobbying. I think my son will like it more than I will as card games, even hybrid mini/card games like this one, just don't float my gaming boat. The miniatures are sweet though!
