Looking at steam reviews, quite a few people seem to be turned off by the sheer size of this game. In a time where card games are really big, pox should be riding the wave but not a lot is changing. I personally love how many runes there are, its one of the things I love about the game and I am sure most vets agree. That being said, I am sure that if we could look at some analytics there are certain runes that next to no one uses and could stand to be cut out. Maybe they are combined, maybe they are reintroduced later, but I think if we want to get more people to get invested it needs to not have such a high bar of entry to play the game. -whatever the opposite of tldr is- This is the same reason I have had a really hard time getting into shows like Game of Thrones. When I come home after work or on a weekend, I like to sit down and relax. I love Futurama and the Office, ATLAB and Scrubs. They are easy to digest and I don't need to pay attention to have a good time. On the other hand, when I watch GoT I feel like I'm taking a college course and I need to whip out a note book and fire up the wiki page and print out a map to keep track of everything that is going on. It is rewarding to become invested in something so complex, I am after all a long time pox player, but it makes it so hard for new people to become interested in any kind of way when it is so complicated. We have become jaded to that I think, but this game is not easy to learn and basically impossible to master. There isn't a lot anyone can do about most aspects of that complexity, and I wouldn't want them to if they could, but I think trimming out some of the less used runes is a great place to start. Also having a clearer single player story and lore maybe, or make it more accessible at least. You can cobble together lore from forum posts and flavor texts and if you happen to do campaigns in the right order and you can read all the dialog without anything glitching out you get a bigger picture but there is a wide world out there waiting to be fleshed out in a meaningful way.
