Well I've asked my local shop to pre-order this and the Vikings of Legend might even at some point look at buying the spider god's bride but for now I'm afraid the Traveller 2300ad release will have to wait until I can get a better handle on Legend!

I wonder which of the two I mentioned above will hit the stores first?

Isn't that usually a reference to Conan?

How does Mongoose's Bits and Mortar work?
I wait for it to show up on leisure games web site's list of new releases
That seems to be a Leisure-Games only thing. Typically Bits and Mortar is applied to games where the publisher offers a "PDF + Dead Tree" combo from their online store. To my knowledge, Mongoose hasn't done this with Blood Magic (or other Legend offerings).

For example, let's say I bought a copy of Blood Magic at my FLGS. I take a photograph of me holding the book and the receipt. I email the photograph to Mongoose. Would they send me a free PDF? That's how other Bits and Mortar purchases I've bought work.

I wasn't sure I wanted to get this particular book, since Blood-Magic has never been my thing, but after reading what else can be done with the book, I have purchased a copy.

Nice sell-job guys!

My local retailer used it for a similar book+pdf deal on Clockwork & Chivalry -- I bought the book through him and he got me the pdf from Bits & Mortar. I know he had to register with B&M and send some "I'm really a brick and mortar retailer" information before he got access. I didn't have to take a picture though!

I just preordered the pdf for Blood Magic from him, I should see if he can get me the pdf as well -- I'm not sure what the terms are for retailers.
