    Musaab Ill wager you do not understand the complexity or the time involved in producing a full ruleset.

    Let's say you're right. Look at other rulesets on FG. Pumping out tons of content and updates. And then look at Nerd Eye. A tiny group taking on multiple projects. Doesn't exactly seem like a good idea. Perhaps this is not totally related, but I am a software dev who works on very large corporate projects in the healthcare, insurance, and banking sectors. I have a bit of an idea of how it is to work on large, complex projects.

    Your budget on one of these projects might be bigger than the budget of the entire SmiteWorks operation. The volume of sales on any of these rulesets barring 5E and maybe one or two others is not sufficient to do as a full time gig. They are largely done part time by enthusiasts. Often a ruleset will take some multiple of 100 hours and then you have the content to convert also. Everyone is keen to see these games released but the reality is they take considerable effort to produce and they dont make a lot of money and there is not a long queue of developers ready to take on projects and see them all the way through.

    You are right. However this is not enthusiastic project that everybody can download for free. It is one of the most expensive ruleset on FG. And maybe people don't want spending money on it because it works ugly and there aren't any additional content. I suppose that if Nard Eye will finish ruleset and publish some add-ons they will start earning money. So far people who buy Conan are disappointed and even irritating.

    The problem here is that it IS an expensive ruleset that has been out for a year and a half and is UNFINISHED. There's no art in the reference manual. In fact NONE of the art is included yet. It's a VERY barebones reference manual. Better ones are included in free products.
