I'm wondering if FFG might consider issuing a 2nd to 1st edition conversion kit, with cards for Investigators and tokens for monsters, allowing the 2nd edition miniatures to be used in the 1st edition?
It seems like a minor thing for little cost, but would be nice to support those who prefer 1st. Maybe even a scenario using 2nd edition tiles?
Strikes me as the type of thing that might appear on some sort of fan/player web site for the game. Now we just need to find such a site...
It's actually the thing I've found odd about those bemoaning the introduction of an app in v2: it's a lot easier for fans to create a conversion of v2 physical assets to work with v1 than it is for us to include 1st edition adventures in v2 or create solo/co-op play for 1st ed.
If the app doesn't work in 10 yrs time, we'll find a way to use the assets in traditional play with a keeper/GM.
