Hello!
Does anybody know if a new version of the Battle Cry Vassal module including all the updates to the new edition is in the works?
I don't know who made the original one - a really good work, considering also all the unofficial scenarios - but a new Vassal module would be a great resource for this great title!
Bye!

Riccardo

Hello Ricardo,
i did the current old versions on Vassal.
But so far, there will be no official new modules online,
because i sent more requests to WotC and Hasbro to get
the permission for a new edition module and got no answers so far,
no positive or negative

And they are not likely to reply, they are not known for customer service or prompt communication.
I would be inclined to go ahead and update it on the grounds that in 10 years they have not objected to the first iteration and may secretly realise that the vassal Module is one of the main reasons that sales of the new version are so strong. Many of the people buying it have done so after years of playing the vassal and other online versions and asking for a reprint to get a physical copy.
There is a slim chance that they will ask you to withdraw it after it is done, but I seriously doubt that they will.

It is easy to delete modules if requested, and ten years is a bit of a precident... Sometimes it is easier to ask for forgivness than permission.

I never picked up the origina game, but got the new one. A new VASSAL Mod for this would be great so that I can use it to PBEM.
