Yay another forum..
Regarding reprints, interest and such.
As chaosium/ moon design has rights to the rq3 source items;
A compilation of sun county, strangers in prax, etc would be interesting as just a PDF.
A rework of stats would be useful but clearly not something for a niche collector piece, and what rule system would it have to be rewritten for, at this point anyway?
A new Wyrm's footprint companion compilation of old not covered topics wouldn't go amiss either as well as the old standard RQ2 in at least PDF or POD.

All in all though, while reprints would be nice, new material such as the sartar books are really something desirable but with HQ and RQ( pick your poison#) dual stat ups are likely the way to go.
Harrak the berserk and the west come to mind as well a 1st Age saga of Nysalor/Arkat's world for use in games similar to what MRQ tried to do for the 2nd Age.

Bare minimum point is that any reprints of hard to find source materials as well as new settings for thought would be welcome as Strangers in Prax was welcome during the AH days.

Anyways, thanks Rick for grabbing the dragon by the tail.i don't envy you the ride.

Just wondering if anyone else is still waiting on their first package of Orient Express from Chaosium - other than me?

Mars - did you notice the cost to ship that box to Canada?
Sure explains part of the Chaosium financial difficulties.
The box that arrived at my house in New Brunswick cost them over $60 US to ship.


Check out my Chaosium sourcebook.

Yes the shipping was crazy.  I think they must have initially had a plan to do what they did for other countries - send a container of them and then ship smaller packages within the country.  But then the whole thing fell apart.  At the time I made my Kickstarter pledge, I emailed them specifically asking about extra shipping to Canada and they said no extra charge.  I'm sure my order was one of the last simply because they were losing money on it.

Latest news from the Chaosium: Some Q&A about what's happening with BRP...

So, 32 pages - does this mean WoW is the new "Essentials"? PDT_Armataz_01_01

But if so, please consider sticking with WoW for the name!

On other matters, any updates on the back catalogue PDFs?
