Well, mark me down as a former nay sayer who has been convinced.  No question Necro's stuff was the cream of the d20 crop and I am looking forward to this.  Heading to the site to sign up!

Is there going to be a forum on the Frog God site?

Am I right in reading there's a hard copy available (or will be) and can that be shipped to the UK?

It can be shipped to the UK. It's free. You only pay for the shipping. But to get the Hardback, you have to buy the subscription to the 13 softcovers at $125, and when they're complete, you'll get the Hardcover which is a compilation of all the softcovers you subscribed to, bound together and presented with a bonus chapter. At least that's my understanding of things so far.

I am indexing part 1 and writing up a review for DF from the point of view of AD&D conversion. So far part 1 has a great editing job, no typos, misspellings or format problems that I've noted. Some things that might be minor inconsitencies, such as a lack of physical description for some of the NPCs and not others. One case where NPCs are listed with alignments but in a similar list alignments are not included. The plot and setting are very intriguing so far though a couple of the story elements feel awkward in a minor nit-picking way.

That's not selling it for me..  :?   I'd buy a hardcopy, but not when I've got the softcover series already. Perhaps they'll consider the hardcover as a single sale option??  8)

There is going to be a hardcover single purchase item, supposedly at the same £125 cover price, but it will not include the signiatures or the 'bonus chapter'. That said, it's allegedly in excess of 700 pages already.

I thought the hardcopy deal was wither the $125 subscription or buying the pdfs individually and then you might not get the signed edition (or was the extra chapter only available with the $125 upfront subscription?).

I'd thought the POD deal was something else entirely.

Maybe some clarification is needed here?
If the signed numbered hardback comes with the PDF only subscription whether or not you buy individually or hit the one off payment button, I might well collect the PDFs directly from FGG as and when they are released.
I already have the first one.
I wonder how they're gonna assign numbers to customers?

If you do the premium subscription for $125, you get all of the .pdf's as they come out and a signed, numbered hardcover when all is said and done.

If you dont want the hardcover, you can pay $89.99 for just the .pdf's.

If you dont want the .pdf's you can wait until they have finished with the subscriptions and then you will be able to buy the hardcover by itself for $169.99.  Only it will not contain the extra content and wont be signed and numbered.

This is all there on Frog God Games product page.  If you want the hardcover for $125 you have to purchase the .pdf package thru Frog God Games.

I could always receive any British copies and post them on if that's of interest (as long as we can agree on how to split the cost), like Ian did with those modules.

I don't think there are "softcovers" as part of the plan.

I think there is only a hardcover and the PDF versions.

King,

Yep, though I think the limited edition and PDF offer is available @$169.00, for a month or so after the short-term $125.00 offer ends.

FC,

You are correct.

I think it's pretty safe to assume Ian was going for "softcopy" and not softcover.  However, there is this comment on their website:

As an additional option, we have made all these books available through Drive through RPG, and will soon be offering print on demand softcover books as well as electronic copies through DTRPG


So eventually you will be able to get a POD "softcover" booklet.

Who knows.
It's too complexed and not exactly clear.
Seems like the rules are not written down and open to change.

Softcover - I thought there was to be a POD option on the PDFs.

Hardcover - What happend if someone buys each PDF and various points along the route, but doesn't actually hit the $125 button? Do they get the free hardback with the bonus chapter and signatures, or don't they? Bear in mind these people will have paid more than the people hitting the $125 button.

Maybe FGG need to post a list off all their many pricing options and exactly what comes with each and the rulings associated with them. I get the impression from the posts that a lot of people are confused or only have half the picture, and that can't be good for business. Especially if people invest and don't get what they want at the end for the want of having accurate info available easily for people to see.

You're right, FGG's site is not clear and does not paint the whole picture.
