    So does anybody remember Hawkmoon? ElfQuest?

    As somebody who does have access to what is left of the print numbers for "Golden Age" chaosium publications, they list three Stormbringer printings in our corporate records. I don't mind what's on the list of versions, but I'm not going to go that deep when I list them on Chaosium's master historical SKU list. After all, the dice they put in the box varied too, and the catalog placed in the box changed about every 3 months, as did the reader response card. Heck, one archive copy we had in the Hayward office had both rulebooks in it... 🙂

    Old RQ3 magazine article on Sorcery...?

    Dragon #132, March 1988 - Resourceful Sorcery by Michael DeWolfe.

    Masks Slipcase is now available

    Probably, although we have no control over whether they sell it, or if one of the marketplace companies that operate on it will sell it. We certainly don't prevent them from selling it.

    Mythic Iceland 2nd Edition is progressing!

    If we had an update, we would make a more detailed post. We have no update.

    Before I buy 7th edition

    I think it's time we get back to discussing the topic itself.

    Bits and Mortar Questions

    We've looked at this problem, but there is no easy solution. Most retailers are different, and have different approaches to even stocking our books, let alone when they stock them. If the store participates in Bits and Mortar they can provide you with the PDF for free when you purchase the printed product. We implemented that about 2 years ago.

    Bits and Mortar Questions

    Unfortunately, that isn't really possible. We have no easy way to track sales such as that, or pay the store for giving you that discount. Plus, what if you returned the book.

    Call of Cthulhu Starter Edition

    Not before the boxed set goes on sale.

    Call of Cthulhu Starter Edition

    We do not take pre-orders on products on chaosium.com. That said, we expect to have the US bound ship dock in Tacoma on November 23rd, and then it's usually about a week or so later that we have the books in the warehouse, barring any unforeseen delays. Thus, I expect we will have the CoC Starter set for sale in early December in plenty of time for the holidays. PS: The leatherette bound books version of the Masks slipcase set is on the same ship, so that should be on sale in the same time frame.

    Change log for updated PDF's

    To all in this thread: Please, be mindful that I am ONLY reporting what was changed in the rulebook for the second printing. This is not the place to debate, dispute, or disagree with what was changed. Please address those questions and concerns with Jason in his "ask Jason" rules questions thread, as opposed to doing so here. We absolutely do care and want to get things right, and as clearly expressed in the rulebook as possible. This thread will only dilute the chance of those comments being addressed.
