Field Report: Lyran Commonwealth should release soon.

One more gem to the pre-Succession Wars Infinity Gauntlet I will wield as I strike upon all of known human space!
Kerensky: Ahh! After 300 years I'm free! It's time to conquer Terra!

but the Infinity Gauntlet had six Gems... unless you are counting the Periphery nations report as well

which I have the Highest Expectaions for for some reason... probably has to do with the Rim Worlds

Actually IO was my sixth gem.
It was going to be the size of a fricking Hope Diamond, but still universal smashy smashy.
Though Periphery works too, chances are I'll get it before IO releases.

  Well I just got "Historical: Wars of the Republic ERA"  DTF version by mail today.  I was wondering why Catalyst Game Press hasn't put out a release date?    I know Con season is up on us so they might be too busy.
  I hope we get some new PDF's releases soon, I am looking forward to some new stuff.

We didn't get a street date for the box set either.  I'm guessing they're up to their necks right now.

While we are all eagerly awaiting the next BT hit, let's all take a moment to remind ourselves how awesome we've had it this year. I mean...we could be waiting for the next Leviathans product... ;)

You know there's a number of people on the RL yahoo group working on updated versions of the rules with various suggestions for new ships / ideas etc?

It would be nice if there was a new book out before Thursday, since I'm running a polling station for the European Parliament elections and it looks like being very, very quiet.

It would be nice, but I can't say I expect it. The Jihad and the Word of Blake are history (maybe).

We keep hoping for certain products this June, but if the writers want to take more time to create the best product possible, then they should do so by all means.  I'd rather have a great product later than rushed products now that aren't as deep.

Isn't that in the middle of convention season?

Is there going to be even Battletech, Catalyst or IWM there this year?

So were more likely to get something released during convention to charge us all up?

I think i remember a release being done that way when GenCon or Origins was happening, i think the former.

From what I gather, GenCon tends to be the "big release party". However, more to my point, this is a very busy time for the staff as they have to also attend to planning and preparation for Origins & GenCon.

I don't know if this is the best thread to ask, but do we have a confirmation that ilClan is going to be released this year? I think everyone is assuming it is, but I'm not sure.

The gist of this thread appears to be speculation mixed with blatant desire and politely zealous shouts for info  :D

Methinks it's the perfect thread to ask  ;D

wait, what?? where'd they say that?

I'm severely unhappy about this, if that's the case. for a book that i thought was originally slated for the end of 2013 to be a omplete no-show for all of 2014 is incredibly disappointing. ilclan is basically the only thing I'm really interested in getting right now. until we see where things are finally going here, it's hard to get excited about anything else.

Between the paucity of solid facts we get on anything these days, the outright lies in some sourcebooks confusing the issue even further, and the delay on such an absolutely major book, it's starting to get hard to remember why I even bother with the official sourcebooks and storyline. i've got half a mind to hold off buying ANY sourcebooks till we get ilclan.

did you guys hire George R R Martin to replace herb or something?
