Id like to purchase the pdf or a copy of 2320, just to complete my collection of all things 2300. I cant seem to find a source. Anyone have any ideas?

Sadly you won't find a (legal) source for it. It was published by QLI, and when their license for it ended they were no longer allowed to sell the PDF.

There may be some hardcopies floating around on ebay perhaps (I think it did have a very limited print run?) but I'm not sure about that.

Pity, because it was a really excellent product. I am saddened that MGT weren't able to pick that up.

Uggh, already tried ebay and amazon with no luck. If its out of print then how can any copy be illegal? It seems if its out print then all bets are off on how you get it.

Largely because of licensing agreements and the ability to copy PDFs. While you can sell on an old hardcopy book, selling a PDF is more problematic because you could have just copied it and kept the original. So licenses (and copyright laws) don't generally allow people to do that.

I think it's pretty stupid, considering that even before PDFs were big people used to scan books all the time and make them available on line way before DTRPG were doing it legally.

The only hope is that 2320AD may someday be available on a T20 CD from Far Future Enterprises.

It's complicated. I own 2320AD, in the sense that I own the text. What I do not have is the right to use the intellectual property of 2300AD, which 2320AD is built on. I suppose their remains the possibility that it may see the light of day sometime, perhaps as a sourcebook for 2300AD, or perhaps as an offering though Far Future Enterprises. I cannot make it available, though.

It would be nice to see a new version of 2320AD, especially as a supplement for 2300AD. However, I was wondering if there were any aspects of the book that you would change now that you've done a lot more work in the 2300AD setting?

There are some. The key difference from 2300 to 2320 is the Kaefer War, and i would likely approach that differently. The end result would be similar, but the hows and whys would likely change.

Sounds like a clear cut case for timeline books, 2305, 2310, 2315, 2321.

Pop them in your schedule Colin :wink:
