Out this month online. In hard-copy at Gen Con. Hold me to it.

That seemed pretty clear to me.

Wolfen's right. With the way things are right now in the distriubtion tiers, etc., is would be suicide for us to print even 1,000 copies and sell them all. The numbers don't add up.

So no exact online release date yet, though?

Even if it were done in the perfect bound style of binding, like The Burning Wheel FRP system from Luke Crane?  The copy I picked up this week is numbered 224 of 1000.

Unless the online copy is dirt cheap, I'll wait for the hard copy version; I'd like to have both, but hard copy is more important for me to own.

I wish more game companies would switch over to the Columbia Games model.  They have both an Autoship program and a program where you can pre-order potential items.  if a target number is reached -- 100 in the case of Columbia -- they get the product out.  

They've gone to direct only and though I am not privy to how they are doing financially, they are still around after at least 15 years.

By the way,  if there is ever such a way to pre-order, put me down for three.  That's the number I have of the "core" book and, of course, I need to keep complete sets!!!

Th program now requires 500 before it ships. At least one war gam has shipped that way, and 8-10 Harn supps are lined up; the top one had 209 pre-orders; it gets about one pre-order every other day.

You are correct.  I have a faulty memory today -- I'm dividing everything by five, it seems...

Okay, cross your fingers, but we should have the "buy" button up by wednesday or earlier, with PDFs going out immediately and print copies (along with a PDF download for free) going out within 2-3 weeks after that (due to Gen Con).  I told you I'd be there. Ha ha ah ah ah  haha

Finally.

Anyway, the book looks pretty good, IMO. It'll be worth the money.
