Chris, what is the release plan for the first wave of books?

Hi guys sorry for the silence it's crunch time here.

I'll try to back track and pick up comments sometime this week

The charger is now 2+ DS7 with no AP. It's gonna be a beast to carry!

@anders - don't worry we caught that.

@Christoffer - Jay should have finished reviewing the core rules by next weekend at which point we start layout on the last half of the core book, we're already starting on statting the guide books (things we know aren't changing) as all the weapons are fixed now as well as the bestiary. We're also statting up the NPC's and Backer characters, then we're starting on the lifepath's for the guide books

My hope is to get us a review PDF for everyone to look over by the end of September, going to print in October and shipping end of October (with the Guides for Wave 1 all being written it's just a matter of how quickly we can steam through the layout

I'm posting an update tonight with the solar system map!

@chris

Sounds great! I can't wait to see the next review PDF. Do you think you could give some guidance when that comes out for what kind of feedback you would like on it? For example, would you want grammar/typo stuff, rules clarity issues, rule balance issues, mechanic/narrative balance issues, suggested rules changes or additions, or what?

Also, are there any issues still pending that are worth discussing further in this thread, or have things mostly been settled for the rules? I also made a lot of comments specifically on rules things earlier in the thread, but I assume that those have already been notes by Benn.

And lastly, what was decided for dual-wielding?

I know it's maybe too late for the first wave but the character sheet might need a revision, and maybe it's already done. There are some things that has to be written on blank spaces on the front and back of the paper so my group came up with these suggestions:

1. Make it double sided to fit more.
2. Influence
3. Adding room for one more weapon. Having a weapon with a grenade launcher fills up both slots as it is.
4. Favours/Conflicts
5. Traits
6. Events
7. Age
and not very necessary, just for convenience:
8. Known spells

Thoughts?

Yes we're making it double sided, possibly landscape too, then adding a second sheet for heretics and or power users who need more space. They'll also be a downloadable lifepath work sheet too

Sorry but I must ask where I find the lastest downloads.

@Robert - the latest downloads are still the Beta 9.5 doc - we've not released anything with changes since.

We're now working on the final rules chapters in layout. I'll be doing an update soon but it looks like we'll need till the end of October for the core book, then November to get the other Wave 1 Guides in layout, however PDF's will be coming as soon as they're ready. It's looking great - but it has to BE great and that will take a little longer to ensure everything's up to the quality you expect.

Good news is we're ahead of ourselves on the writing - even the Venusian Apocalypse has been written and is due to get statted soon. Bauhaus, Cartel and Whitestar books from Wave 2 are also written and just waiting on stats.
