Hey Jake,

Just curious.

Yeah...

it's like this:

TROS is doing well sales-wise and compared to the industry (yay)

But the industry isn't doing that well, and not all of our customers pay on time (go figure)

So there's a lull in budget for expansion. TFOB is also going to be a *big* book, which means not cheap, hence the weight. I could get it out sooner, but it would be crap.

OBAM *is* really cool, though.

Speaking as one of those fortunate enough to have seen it, I think it's the best book I have ever read ;-)

OBAM will be out around Early April, although maybe not in stores until a tad later. We'll see...

Jasper's written a spreadsheet-based CharGen assistant. It requires MS Excel to use, and it's pretty cool. Check it out.

Jake,
Any further thoughts on releasing any of the rules on PDF?  If OBAM iscoming out in early April I'm in Australia and not likely to see it until June.  Thats another six months! Not to mention the other two books.  what can I say, I'm exicted about the game, am playing it but don't want to wait.
Now this is just a thought but with regards to the pdf this is what I was thinking.  Maybe something along the lines of an advanced order.  We pay you for a copy of the game at whatever the retail price is plus postage as well as a little extra for the pdf.  Now this would mean I'd get the rules now, you'd get the money now and then you'd send me a copy of the printed book once it's published.
Anyway there is no harm in asking :).

Aaron,

If you order the book when it comes out (either from Jake or from one of the online places), you'll have it just a couple of weeks later. There's no need to have to wait for it to hit your local shops.

Thats true but its still a 4 month wait then huh Brian? I'm guessing you don't think much of my idea, and thats fine, it was afterall just a thought from a fan.  I just dont like the idea that much that rules and info that will greatly enhance my playing experince exist but I have to wait 4+ months before I can see it.. Thats 8 or 9 gaming session that miss out. i'm afraid i'm just a product of the instant culture mentallity!!! hahaha..

I wasn't trying to insult you or anything Aaron. And yeah, I can understand where you're coming from, also being a fanboy. I was just pointing out that you'll only get it a little later than everyone else.

Plus, Jakes said once or twice that he may consider selling it online as soon as it comes back from the printers, even before he ships it off to shops and distributors. I don't know if that's still on the books etc, just something he mentioned that he was thinking of.

As for PDF, I would think that the size of just the appendix (30 MB!) of the first book on the web page would have put you off :-)

Brian.

p.s: Would it make you really jealous if I mentioned I was reading through OBAM just a few minutes ago? Sorry, couldn't resist - you being an Aussie and all :-)

I have *finally* added Brian Leybourne's truly awesome Damage Table program (holy crap, Brian--I hadn't even compiled it until today, I've been so busy...this program rocks!).

It's a must-have for TROS fans.
