Tsar is printing!

Notices for shipment have gone out, so if you have not yet received one, please email me at Books will ship May 28, with shipment from Paizo (if you bought from their site) about a week later. Greg flies up the week before so we can sign and number the copies ordered directly from us!

RA Reloaded is very rare and expensive…so yes, we are redoing both a Swords and Wizardry and a Pathfinder version  (pre-sale in about a month)—including 20 or so new levels (I am finalizing the last 2 this next week). This puts it over 50 levels!

We added a number of lower level areas (character levels 1-10), a village, a Temple of Tsathogga with a  three level dungeon of its own, and several deeper levels (wait until you see my treatment of the will-o-wisp on Level 12C).  I am also making it a faux-leather, stitch bound hardcover that will look like a Bible, and we are doing a series of 50-60 battle maps (miniature scale) of key encounter areas. Everything is drafted except 2 levels I am behind on (5B and 13C)—maps are in, art is ordered, and editing is in progress! Go Skeeter, John (Stater) and Dawn! The SW version will feature a red cover, and the Pathfinder version will be blue. Retail price is TBD (probably about $100). We may do this as a kickstarter project so we canm print more and get it into distribution. Please let me know your thoughts about this. We could offer premium packages at higher donation amounts--not sure what all would entice folks (a trip to Dallas or PaizoCon with the Frogs perhaps?).

Happy Anniversary FGG!

Its been 2 years and 71 books since we started this, and we from FGG want to thank all of you for the support. Not even an April Fools joke to be had:)

Layout for Tsar is done! Final proofing is being performed, and the books will head off to the printer this week. Now we can refocus on a few small books while we make the push forward on Rappan Athuk! I expect Tsar hardcovers will ship in Mid-May, and thanks to Chuck's skills, we got it to slightly less than 1000 pages...this means 2 WILL fit in one box, saving our overseas customers about $70 in shipping. Shipping invoices will arrive to all soon. We will ship based on the "shipping invoice paid" list, so please make sure you get this done by May 15 or so. All books are going to be shipped priority and wrapped in about a pounds of bubble wrap to ensure safe delivery.

At about 1 PM today, the Slumbering Tsar signed, numbered versions will go off sale. We will have limited quantities of non-signed/numbered copies available still at Paizo and possibly a few leftovers from the overprint here. I do NOT expect we will ever reprint this book, the print costs are prohibitive. Everyone give a shout out to Chuck (who can go to sleep now, for a  little while at least), who did a fantastic job making this book a true piece of RPG history.
