Oh good, I can stop checking DriveThruRPG every hour and wondering if I missed it.

Thanks for the notification Cubby.

Would you believe that I was doing the same thing here most of the morning, but on the Catalyst store, waiting to see if it had posted there? And now it has, but I've read it so many times already, so I'm gonna go play with my kids.

But please, everyone, for real: I hope you enjoy this book. A lot went into it, and Phil did a great job both on the initial draft and keeping the faith until it got its first wide release today.

The Shattered Fortress PDF is LIVE!

Please note: Because a relatively few customers were able to obtain the print book at Gen Con, we wanted to push the PDF version out as quickly as possible so everyone has a chance to read the latest exciting chapter of the BattleTech saga. As a result, at this time, ONLY the PDF version is available. The usual PDF + Print bundle will not be available on the store until the print book has a street date, later this fall. Likewise, an upgrade to the combo is not available at this time.

Pffft. Spend an hour writing a post, it gets one response before OMG NEW BATTLETECH *buys and starts reading* what was I saying? Never mind. :D

It makes a lot of sense. I'd be happy if they went that way, but time will tell.

I think the biggest thing out of all that would be changing the stat block. It's basically been the same since Battledroids, and it could be so much more useful.

Indeed, and the new paradigm is accessibility and usefulness to new players. I doubt old grizzled players would complain either.

You could open the page and see a 3D colorized animated walking hologram that rose out of the page by being constructed piece by piece and there would be a thread bitching that loose’s art had been left out

if they didn't use loose's art to animate and walk out of the book, yeah I'd probably be That Guy. ;)

Well, that was time I could've spent sleeping or drinking or painting models for another game or, really, anything else. Damn shame.

I read it. I agreed with your statements. I thought it was a great format.

I think forums have an unfortunate tendency to err towards people correcting or debating eachother. If you make a perfect post maybe you get one or two people that will say, "This, so much this."

I think that if the forums had thumbs up icons you'd have seen that your post was well received and well respected.

I was talking about staying up all night reading Shattered Fortress, not my musings on Technical Readouts. :D

This was posted on the BattleTech Facebook page. Proposed marketing material. It makes me happy.

It was posted on official FB page. I don't expect to be it a simple leak.
