I think it would have been a bit irritating for there to be separate Players and Gamemasters books. It is an age old preference, but having one core rules book adds to the accessibility of the line. Sure, there may be really useful rules and expansions in follow on supplements but players like to be reassured that the core publication is fully ready to run in and of itself. 

Well, I do anyway.

Chaosium only releases the physical book and PDF at the same time.

I apologize but that's not accurate. I have bought dozen of PDFs in the Chaosium store and then got a discount when they release the physical book months later. The last time I even did this was with the new BRP book just last year.

In recent times that is what we're aiming to do as our standard release model.

Releasing the PDF first, followed by the physical release, is now the exception rather than the norm for us, which is why we released the Cults of RuneQuest books, Alone Against the Static, Arkham etc with print + PDF at the same time. There is at least one and maybe another title we're planning to release the PDF first for coming up though.

Thanks for the clarification. I haven’t been following the Runequest releases sadly (RL has been harsh lately). For what is worth, releasing physical books day 1, it's better IMO.

 

Really looking forward to this release. I'm having surgery in a couple of weeks and it would be lovely to have the book to read while recovering. Just keeping hope.

I totally forgot about the BRP book! I got that in PDF first too. I was thinking of how the official word has been, for the most part, PDFs don't come out before print. Like MOB said, that's their standard release aim.

Personally, I'm just really, really eager to have the core book in my hands, but for your sake, I hope your surgery goes well and it comes out in time for your recovery reading.

It is different in different areas of course - you still have to wait in Aus/NZ, so getting the PDF first (from the Chaosium site) is still the way to go for some of us.

Managed to score my first ever game of Pendragon at the upcoming ChaosiumCon; would love for this to be available at the Dealer's Room then.

The Pendragon Coe rulebook will be for sale at Chaosium Con.

So......is it getting released today or tomorrow or when, exactly?

Do I keep refreshing the Chaosium site to see if there's an announcement of its release? Ummmmm...no, that would be obsessive. *ahem*
