bright shadows

Postby tarkhan bey » Thu Sep 20, 2007 5:19 pm

I was disappointed to find that this book does not seem to have been released this week. Upon checking the release date, it has been changed from 17/09/07 to Sept07.
Is it going to be delayed for long or will it be available before the end of the month? Anyone know?
If it has been delayed, is there any chance of a preview? Go on, just a sneaky peek. :)

Well we normally get Mongoose books a week after they ship at my FLGS so even if it was shipped on the 17th it won't hit the shelves until next week. If you live over the pond it will most probably take longer so maybe week after next. If it is delayed don't worry to much some games can take alot longer than a few weeks to get out.

I guess no one has noticed yet, but Bright Shadows seems to have slipped to next month according to the specs.

so its been changed from Sept 07...to Sept 07! the villains!!!!! lol :D

I doubt its any major hiccup as its been through playtest (and an enjoyable romp it was too), so maybe some last minute editing, or scheduling issues or whatnot.. either way i imagine it will appear soon enough.

Matt posted on another thread that this has been pushed back to October along with Dragonewts and the RQ Spellbook, simply because their printing workload is so heavy at the moment.

RQ Deluxe is shipping this week though.

Neo=Smartypants! :lol:

Yeah, I know that its the same month, but it was the first hint that there was going to be a delay in the release schedule. I love the Eternal Champion stuff and am on a much tighter budget since getting married. It is looking like a pile up of Mongoose releases. They may interfere with my prospective purchases from other companies(Solomon Kane and the Kislev sourcebook for WFRP). Something's gotta give(or at least wait).

I cant help myself, its an impulse control problem lol

seriously though it will be well worth the wait, it is full of Melnibonean goodness and the isle of Imrryr is given a good shake and poke in aqll its various nooks and crannies.

Plenty of other Elric goodness coming up too i've been testing lately... i'd also take a moment to state Charles Greens work has been top notch so far, and we look forward to testing more from him, and recommend everyone to check out his work.

I'm afraid i couldn't comment on the hawkmoon books toot, sadly when they came up for playtest we were busy testing other books for Mongoose so others had to take them on. Fortunately my groups been able to find space for most of the Elric related books and many of the generic RQ books to date though.

I do know a couple of the other groups are testing an upcoming hakwmoon release, though i cant recall if they tested the earlier ones, but if so maybe they could comment on the comparative quality of the books without giving anything away that would breach thier NDA's.

My group has tested all the Hawkmoon materials so far and all I can say is hold on to your seats, its all grade A+. My group generally sticks to the D20 stuff (Conan & Bab 5 in particular) and Hawkmoon was our first and only RQ experience thus far but it is growing on us...we love Hawkmoon all the way though and you guys will find the wait well worth it.
