Upcoming Releases Thread XI was actually packed, in advance, on board the Exodus Fleet.
It'll come back around in a few hundred years.

And it will be very, very cross with everyone still here.

I swear I saw Releases Thread XI in a store beside 1628. Also, I may have been drinking at that time.

On a more serious note, is there anything in the works for Alpha Strike in the next year or so?  Or are we getting regular product with AS rules included?  An example of what I mean was the last world wide event.  It had scenarios for both CBT and AS.

At this point we need a total reset of all coming products outside the new boxes and ilclan. Beyond that is anything a sure thing?

I thought they said they want to do further World Wide Events with rules for all three systems. Other than that I'm not sure anything has been made public.

Actually . . . weren't we supposed to get a PDF release or notes or whatever for the Wolf vs Rasalhague WWE in fall?  Did I miss any announced results?

Its just due to linguistic drift that in the 31st century there is no XI and a Baker's Dozen is now XII  :D

I thought Baker's Dozen was a reference to that Republic black ops team in TRO3150 that did orbital drops in their battle armor for headhunter strikes against Capellan HQs.

So what you're saying is that in a couple of threads time, a baker's dozen will be 10?

Just finished reding the world wide campaign thread. Is something like this planned for this year in an official sense. Say, something that will have an effect on the game history?

Traditionally, a Baker's dozen is meant to represent 13 of something, not 12

Devlin Stone's real name is Baker? Confirmed?

But yeah, how are the new boxes coming? Still working on the contents, or are we on to trying to get production started? Or are those not things that 100% happen one after the other? Who/What are we waiting on at the moment?

Thanks.

Couple of things . . .

Wasn't the novel sold at GenCon supposed to be released by now?
What happened to the YA fiction that was in the works?

I believe that fell behind schedule when Brent used up all the glitter.

I knew that, I was wondering why the preceding post had a link to Tammy Faye Bakker's Wikipedia page...

In any case, back to the Tech.
