Star Fleet Rulebook PDF

Postby msprange » Wed Apr 18, 2012 12:33 pm

A short while ago, we said we would be looking at a way to provide owners of the printed A Call to Arms: Star Fleet rulebook with a PDF version.

This should be ready to go at the end of this week/beginning of next, and it will be automatically updated, now and in the future, with any errata or other changes.

Details on how to get it will be posted then but, to get ready, make sure you are registered at this web site;

It is all free and they won't bombard you with spam.

Thanks for doing this Mat. Quick Question, is this going to be available to all who buy the book from here on in as well or just to those who currently own a copy of the rule book?

Any chance of doing this for the people who got the ACTA:NA bundle with the free pdf so we can get advantage of the updates made to the pdf

How are you going to handle people buying books for someone else? I've bought a couple books for other people and I'd like for them to get their PDFs as well.

To expand on this - say you bought your book from a Brick and Mortar store. Will the PDF be available?

Yeah, I've purchased my rulebook from the war store here in the united states, would I still be able to get the PDF when its released?

Yes, we will honour this no matter where you bought the book. All we ask in return is that you use the honour system, don't claim a PDF if you haven't got one, and don't go about spreading the word we are doing this - those who most want the PDF are going to be reading these forums anyway and will get to know about it soon enough.

Outstanding Matt thanks.

I will have to make it to one of your mongoose towers open days and buy you a drink, or maybe a doughnut.

Nicely done, Matt. I like this idea better than having to keep writing in my rulebook. This way, I just need to print the rules out when they're revised.

No, we are waiting on word from ADB. Everything else is in place, as soon as we have this, we'll post some details right here!

Things are moving a little slower at ADB than normal. SVC fell last week and was hurt enough that he's had difficulty focusing on products. (Constant pain when you breathe does that and not breathing isn't really an option.) We absolutely must get Star Fleet Marines: Assault out as (due to SVC's fall) it is a week behind schedule and that will release Romulans PD20M as well. Then he should be able to focus on ACTASF and complete what is left there.

Please note these are the "big chunks" of SVC time. When he can, he does work on other things.
