This is an interesting topic, which I'm thinking of breaking off into its own thread, because there's a lot to be learned here.
For many years, we also thought "if you build it, they will come." Then came Pathfinder, which built it much bigger, faster, and more aggressively. That's the size of it. We built it and built it with FC, but with Pathfinder literally release the same day as FC, and the wounds the game suffered early (see f*cking, Mongoose), it put us forever on a back foot. Throwing increasing levels of effort at FC will not change the fact that Pathfinder exists, and in many ways has sucked most of the air out of the room.
Our most precious resources are time and attention, as it's just the two of us and we need to spin plates like running Kickstarters, developing board and card games, and most importantly investing that time and attention wisely in things that will generate profits for us to pay ourselves and/or grow the business. The question, ultimately, is whether the yield of time and attention invested in FC remotely equals time and attention invested in a board game, card game, MAG or Spycraft. Judging from the sales, the answer appears to be no. We do know that folks have a deep and abiding love of FC, and we want to respect that and will still release Spellbound, even though it's not the smartest investment of time and attention, because we don't want to leave you all hanging (nor do we want an albatross hanging around our neck).
On the plus side, Mistborn is the very first RPG Pat and I have released that has *not* been damaged by outside forces from the outset...and it does well, despite its relatively sluggish pace of releases. So I think RPGs can be profitable and popular today. But we've taken a lot of lumps with other releases, and we need to build in a way that will ensure and protect Spycraft Third from the damage FC and SC2.0 suffered out the gate. I am *literally* working on SC3 right now, and I think our plan once it's ready for Kickstarter will help you guys see how we plan to make sure the game line is healthy and as "bulletproof" as possible from the jump...as well as having a much better environment for future expansion and third party collaboration.
So TL; DR - SB is coming, and SC3 is too. Rest assured of that. But beyond that I can't really say.
