That sounds like a really good tool.

Is it an online resource or does it have tables that could be published in the Jonstown Compendium?

Currently it is a desktop app, but the thought is to either make iOS app or a web app.

It is just a app to create a sequence of suggested stations with runic associations drawn from a database of archetypes.

With some advice about how to elaborate and interpret and modify for different uses, secrets, shortcuts and general shenanigans.

For local versions of greater quests, initiation quest, local heroquests for communing with the history of places to appease or strengthen local spirits and gods aspects etc etc.

We at the Chaosium usually announce a book's definitive premier in the product lineup when layout of the final manuscript has begun. We have numerous books in the writing or editing stage, but we don't like to say "when" they will be done. We used to estimate "when" and ultimately ended up disappointing people when inevitable delays happened. We also spent a lot of effort providing "no update" on the status of these future publications, which then led to lots of "why" questions.

Please use the following table to understand why Chaosium isn't telling you when a future book will be ready:

1D10  Result
01    Author is late on finishing the manuscript
02    Editor is late on editing the manuscript
03    Artist(s) are late on delivering art
04    Art direction is taking longer than expected
05    Manuscript requires extensive rewrites
06    Art requires extensive revision or was rejected
07    Author gives up and a new author must be found
08    Artist disappears and art must be reassigned
09    Roll twice on table and combine delays sequentially
10    Roll thrice on table and combine delays sequentially

1/ It should be a 1d100 table surely?
2/ The entry for, 'A Meldik set fire to it' is missing.
3/ The entry for, 'My Dragon Snail ate it.' is missing.
4/ The entry for, 'Zorak Zoran whapped it.' is missing.

As far as we know, is the Cults Book going to include the spells for each cult, or are they going to be separate in 'The Big Red Book of spells.'?
Is the second volume of The Cults Book, the Big Red Book of Spells?
Thanks in advance!

The Red Book of Magic is its own book, and not the second volume of the Cults slipcase set. The two volumes of the Cults book will be about 400 pages each, and just contain cults and related material.
