How far is the new BRP product line?

I remember being excited about the new Chaosium future plans when RQ6 became Mythras and all that jazz. Now, a year or two has passed and I see nothing ...

What is in the making? What is expected to come out and when?

BRP core booklet (quickstart), Mythic Iceland, CoC Dark Ages, Vampire Wars? I am already forgetting them ...

I guess Chaosium is concentrating on the RuneQuest line as well as CoC. So I won't hold my breath for anything else. On the other hand, have a look at the 3rd party systems and settings, there is some movement there.

The only "when" that's been announced, AFAIK, is for RQG.  PDF should be late-autumn, I believe; and unless the early-adopters find something awful that editors & playtesters missed, the aldryami-corpse version should follow shortly (hopefully in time for the gift-giving season).  @Jeff and/or @Jason Durall would be the people with the latest info, but I presume they'd already have announced if the core rulebook were slipping as far as next year...


The ms. for Mythic Iceland 2e seems to be almost complete, if I understand correctly, but art/layout/etc remains largely un-done; the author has said he plans to write a "M.I.Companion" volume, which may or may not be the same as the "Campaign" that IIRC he has also mentioned.  @Jason Durall iirc has said that the "Vinland/Skraeling" content is likely going to get its own book.

There is one more "BRP" product that has been mentioned, but I do not think the genre/topic has been announced.  The previously-discussed "Noir Detective, but not Mythos/horror" has been withdrawn.

I don't believe a standalone "BRP" product (as such) is planned at this time, not even a QS booklet.  The existing "DaVinci Man" products (BGB & QS) will be the "BRP" product until the current printings have run out, and likely for a while thereafter as POD; Chaosium (AFAIK) currently plans "BRPv2" to be more of an internal-dev document, with published rules being specific setting-bound implementations (e.g. RQG, CoC7, Myth.Icld, and more to come).
