Could there be a possibility to sign up on an email list, so that as soon as the Blade becomes available, people would get email notifications? Or even a day or two in advance :-) I'm checking the forum a couple of times a week but sometimes forget...

I'm really looking forward to this! Can you comment on how much, if anything, has changed since the beta?

I’ll consult with Phil. I imagine it should be possible, but being a computer nincompoop I myself couldn’t tell for sure, and have no idea how to set this kind of thing up.

Mainly finetuning. Most of this went into Assets, with some also put into character creation and development.

Major overhauls went on with Sorcery. Calculation of the Sorcery Pool was modified, the initial Sorcery Priority Pick for character generation was given more impact on the eventual effectiveness of a sorcerer, and the Taint mechanic was changed. One Mystery was replaced entirely, and some others modified. While we were certainly pleased with Sorcery before, we are now highly so. :)

Hi Overdrive!

I still have you logged as a member of the Blade test group, so you and the rest of the Beta team will get a formal group notice as soon as we go live with Blade.

While there were many small touches here and there, as Michael said, the largest changes involved both Assets and Sorcery. The revisions were made after having "lived in" our individual Blade campaigns for a substantial period of time, and we are very happy with the final adjustments.

Regards,

Phil

I have a way of doing this.

Anyone who has joined trosfans and included an email address in their profile will receive an email when Blade is about to be released.

Through a convoluted series of under-the-counter deals worthy of the most networked of faceless bureaucrats I have the member list for the official trosfans forum. They too will receive an email regarding Blade's release.

Regards,

Only that we are working closely with old Saint Nick and that he assures us that the Blade PDF will be under everyone's tree. :D

Regards,

Phil

Phwew...finally made it back. Thanks to Ian for helping me get my profile back up and running; I was starting to panic thinking I may miss out when Blade is made available :( Everything is fixed now and I can't wait for the book to come out :D

That was indeed a bit of a saga. Nevertheless, there are a lot of people hanging out for this tome -- hopefully people who don't hear directly from us because their email details have changed will still hear about the release through rpg.net or other sources.

Regards,

30% off lulu orders until November 27th. While I doubt the answer will be yes might as well ask - is it going to be ready in time for this discount?

Hmm...next Tuesday? No, I can honestly say that is too soon for us.

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Hi,

We're getting closer to the Blade's release date which is great and I guess everyone just can't wait to put their shaking, sweaty hands on it :) I realize it's just a month and I'll be patient and strong, but... Could you guys please present just a bit of your masterpiece, say a finalized pdf page or two, to help those of lesser power of will? :)

Regards

Hi KRISWOOD!

Okay, just for you, here's a tiny sneak peek of an early proof featuring some of team artist Tom's artwork:

That's all we can reveal for now!

Regards,

Phil
