Oh for ******'s sake.

IlClan is my project. I was assigned it before Herb stepped away. I crafted the outline, I worked out the content with Herb. I assigned the writers, and so on.

IT. IS. STILL. COMING.

There's been no scrapping of writing, no changes to the format or content, no readjustment of canon. The ONLY thing that has changed is that it has been shuffled around the schedule and has been moved farther down due to other mitigating circumstances that none of you need concerning with. It's coming, just not now.

So PLEASE STOP with the 'woe is us' crap. Thank you.

Sorry for starting the bonfire.  I saw conjecture and wanted actual sources.

I guess careful what you ask for might apply here? ::)

Thanks for the confirmation Ghostbear.

If you think that's applied only to you, it isn't.
Stuff like this has been going on for months. Freaking. Months.

I know as fans we get excited, even a bit energetic about possible releases or potential ideas.
That's all well and good, it breeds excitement for a title.
Then there's the moments where we fans then take the discussions and turn them into lamentations over things that just might not be true.
Raging at things that aren't there, which eventually leads to the "woe is us".

I love our community, truly I do.
However there are times that even the best of us will argue that a grilled cheese sandwich is being made.
All because they just smelled fresh bread being baked nearby.

Excuse the metaphor, I'm kind of hungry right now.

That's all it takes to get a Clan killed around here?! Man, the Word REALLY screwed the pooch on the whole "Jihad" thing. 
Look, dude, when you are a real mechwarrior you don't need to get all dressed up in cooling suits and cool helmets to work on your mech. You just strip down to your 1980s panties and crop top vest and start wrenchin' it.

There's been no scrapping of writing, no changes to the format or content, no readjustment of canon. The ONLY thing that has changed is that it has been shuffled around the schedule and has been moved farther down due to other mitigating circumstances that none of you need concerning with.

Frankly this should be in your sig.  It applies to every bloody book that hasn't been released just as much as it does the IlClan book.
That said, Ben, does the same stand for the WuTangClan sourcebook as well, or has that been scrapped, content changed, reformatted, and readjusted?
Hell, I don't even know what the Great Panic was all about; from what we HAVE seen of schedule slips and book changes, they turn out BETTER.  Keep up the awesome, guys.

Yes, I've expected that for a while now, all good.

I have the not so unique experience of having my favorite faction axed.  If you top the Jags death when you off the Adders you've got my full support.

There's plenty of other faction ponies around here to jump on.

Nothing of value to the greater BT universe or, especially, fandom is lost.  Sure, I'm realistic about it.

The Ghost Bears have lots of fun toys too.  I'll take a blue 4/6 assault omni anyway I can get it.

That's a good point; we waited forever and a day for Operation Klondke and Wars of Reaving to come out, but they ended up being some of the best sourcebooks in the history of the franchise. It makes me even more excited for Handbook House Kurita, Interstellar Operations and the ilClan sourcebook.

<Spaceman1>: What 3145 products are scheduled for next year?
<Habeas2>: Spaceman1 - Era Report: 3145, TRO: 3145, and Field Manual: 3145 are the key books of the 3145 period we are working on. There is also an Era Digest planned to cover the early Dark Age period (when the "pirate factions" showed up), a Historical to cover the wars in between, and the final book of the 3145 priod will be The ilClan.

Quote
<mostrojoe>: So no hints for 2013? Nothing really new or interesting you want to throw to us?
<Habeas2>: Mostrojoe - 2013 is basically the year we go through the Dark Age setting. From beginning to end, for all intents and purposes, we will be watching the entire era unfold and reach its conclusion with The IlClan sourcebook.

Y'all better hope it's my nightmare.  ;D

New frontiers is what I'm looking for.  We can all (mostly) agree CGL is doing good work.  What they did with the Jihad and Dark Age frameworks was better than,I think, most expected.  It was done well.  It is time to see CGL develop the story and the game in open and uncharted waters.

I don't really care what the next products are.  I just want to see the story move forward.  A legitimate Ilclan story (sorry Fletch) where a clan actually beats the Republic off Terra would be perfect.  If it involves the homeworld clans then it's icing on the cake.  If the Ilclan book involves an epic to the death war between the two clan groups, also great.
