What excellent news, that the new RQ will have new published adventures as a priority of sorts. Yay! Big campaign books are awesome, of course, but sometimes I just want to run a smaller adventure taking a session or two, instead of a months long campaign. Also, for beginners and starting new player groups, a shorter introductory adventure is the way to go - to ease them into the game, rather than have everyone commit from the get go to the "long haul".
I've been out of the loop a bit, so apologies, but I'd like to know what the current release plan is for the new RQ edition? I take it, the finished manuscript was at GenCon and is being edited(?) at the moment. However, I read somewhere that Chaosium would possibly run a Kickstarter to fund the printing, commission extra art, etc. Is this true?
If there will be a KS for the new edition, that most likely means there's no way the books (which there are three) are coming out this year. Well regardless, I'm hopeful we'll see at least the 1st book released before the end of this year. One can always hope.
EDIT: Gah! I just read that there will be a Kickstarter, from one of Jeff's design blog threads. Okay, so when is this going to be? September, perhaps? You aren't probably going to release the books until all of them are done; so no chance of getting the 1st book early (as it is likely the most finished one)? Is there any chance that the books would be out this year? (I doubt it, but hey, one can ask.)
