So... FFG stopped producing Tannhäuser products awhile ago and it seems that Pathfinder System didn't make it way to other games. I am curious about the reason why this elegant system collects dust right now. Also, I heard that FFG holds a patent for this mechanic but I failed to find any information about it. Is that true?
The Pathfinder system would make a really cool alternative for the skirmish mode in Imperial Assault (but my brain kind of automatically goes to Star Wars for alternative game ideas). You could use the path system while keeping most of the IA rules intact, I'd imagine.
