Any idea on a release date?

Post by Zemora »

It's almost the middle of March, and I haven't seen anything definitive for a release this month. Is it still on target?

It is at the printer, which means it should hit stores shelves mid to late april. So, yes, despite some delays, it will be out soon. ;-)

I'm actually sitting here working on expanding the quickstart, based on playtest feedback, and the need to make the sample adventure fit the typical 4-hour time slot for Gen Con this year. I should be done with that process within the week, and then I'll send it to layout. My hope is to have the Quickstart ready for the public at least two weeks before the actual book hits the shelves.

Thank you for your continued interest! Also, by April 1st we'll have a new website dedicated to the game, put together by a talented webteam, and that will become the hub of ERP activity (although these will remain the only forums, because it is after all published by Goodman Games).

Well, that's pretty cool. I actually pre-ordered it from my FLGS, so I'm looking forward to getting a copy.

I am sure you get this question a lot but I would be very interested in the answer also.

The books shipped from the printer, so they should be hitting stores by the end of the month, I think. I'll have to ask Joseph how fast people can get their books by direct order, though I know you're doing the game a big favor by going through your local FLAGS. ;-)

Yes indeed! Your interior art looks great in the finished product! I can't wait to get started on the campaign setting with the team, as soon as the stars are in the correct alignment, so to speak!

The quickstart will be ready for download by the beginning of next week! It includes an adventure too for would-be GMs to try out with their groups.

I'm glad you like what you've seen so far...I'd really enjoy hearing about how it goes for you in actual play ;-)

Got mine too!

At first glance; quality formating, art, binding, etc. Can't wait to 'dig-in'.

Will probably have questions (...maybe a FAQ sticky thread..?), especially on creating your own spells - which looks like the most complicated part of the game.
