So what's the good word?
  • It's March, and I'm really hoping that we get the Far West RPG this month.

    Spoil me...how is it going?
  • I'm taking the silence as golden. :)
  • So sorry! There was an existing thread on this, so I didn't make any further announcements... but I just noticed that the thread in question is in the Far West Society forum, which non-members can't see!

    Boy, is my face red.

    Anyway, as I said there:

    Briefly: It will be in final edits and layout soon, PDF will go to backers (and the printer) in March. Physical shipment occurring as soon as we have the stock in hand.

    All told, we're only about a quarter behind schedule, which in the overall scope of things isn't too bad. :)
  • Awesome news! I've been waiting for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier for a long time and OVA: Revised Edition's nowhere in sight (with no word...). So, if it's taking longer, so be it.
  • I also buy D&D and Games Workshop products, so I can vouch for the fact that only a quarter behind is pretty good. As I've said once before, take your time and give us a great product. As a side note, after reading the bios on Skara and Luikart, I've noticed their names on many of the products I already own (Pathfinder, Dark Heresy, etc.) So I'm definitely expecting a high quality product.
  • Hi Adament: Sorry for being ignorant but I could not find it anywhere on the site...
    When will non-backers (i.e. me) be able to order/preorder the RPG?

    [John] Found it in another thread. Summer. :(

    Just a quick update -- Repeating some information from a thread in the Far West Society forum, since not everybody can see that:


    An update on release: We're not going to make the end of March. My fault. I've only got so many hands.

    April delivery, though -- that's still on.

    The hold up is that I haven't finished my final drafts yet. And until I'm done, we're pretty much bottlenecked, as TS and Rick have gone as far as they can go without my stuff.

    I'm busting my ass, though -- I'm as close to spending 100% of my time on FAR WEST stuff as I can afford to be and still run the rest of the day-to-day stuff here at Adamant, even if that means putting in extra writing shifts at night.

    ....and so, with that, back to work for me!

  • It makes me sad, but I'm hoping for good things.
  • Over on G+, Adamant/Gareth reported that the following products will be released this April: 1) ICONS TEAM-UP, 2) Limited Edition of FAR WEST (backer exclusive), 3) WARLORDS OF THE APOCALYPSE, in that order.
  • I just got off a Skype video conference with TS Luikart, about not only the Adventure Game, but additional things coming down the pike.

    Mwah-ha-ha, etc. :)
  • I'm actually interested in finding out about Warlords, but I'll just keep my eyes peeled for any and all AE releases.
  • I'll admit disapointment in the fact you've spent more time selling the setting then the game, but if it's worth the wait, and at this point I've no reason to think otherwise, it will have been worth it.
  • Shout!
  • As much as I am intriged by Warlords of the Apocalypse, I might have to take a break on it. I have heard the entire Deathlands audiobook collection by James Axler. I have all 102 books from 0: Encounter, and 1: Pilgrimage to Hell, thru 100: Prodigal's Return (which messed me up), and 101: Lost Gates. But it didn't stop there for me because I also got into the Outlanders and Earthblood series by James Axler.

    Most likely, I will pickup 102: Haven's Blight when it becomes available.

    Then agian, no cards to hassle with...

    As for BB RPG? Now there is something I can get into reading about also. More because of curiosity.
  • Yeah, I loved BB and I remember as a kid I wanted to write the sequel because they never made it. Not sure I would want to roleplay BB but I would read the RPG to see what they've done with the property.

  • Hmm, I'll have to go looking for it then and I'll get back to you. I was born in the 90s, but I grew up on the orignal Star Wars trilogy and the tv shows of the early 90s (Saved by the Bell, Fresh Prince, etc) so maybe I won't find I that... um... cheesy hahaha.
  • heh... I guess it would help for some of us crazy fans (me) to stop distracting them in email. :)
  • Will we be getting the adventures and Prosperity along with the game, or will they come later?
  • I guess GMSkarka is referring to e20... :)

  • Jason--

    I'm afraid not. May, though. If it isn't finished in May, it's because I've keeled over.

    We can rebuild him. We have the technology. STEAM technology! And it'll probably cost a lot less than 6 million dollars, too. :)

    I'm sure we can get a Kickstarter going to make the world's first Steampunk Cyborg!
  • If you could get the Pebble people on board then you'd have the 6 million dollars anyway. :-)
  • So, I have a question, the answer to which I might have missed somewhere: for those who contributed to the Kickstarter, when do they get the PDF?
  • GMSkarkaGMSkarka +1 -1 (+8 / -0 )
    Kickstarter PDFs will be sent out by the end of this month.

  • Okay, we won't form up a posse and hunt you down like a dog.
    This time. :)
  • Congrats on your daughter's graduation, by the way! :)
  • Tell "congrats" to your daughter and enjoy LA! Looks like I'll have something to look forward to after finals/on the plane home.

Howdy, Stranger!
