Simple – we aren’t going to Kickstart RuneQuest. Once a book is finished with layout, we’ll let you order the PDF, and about a month later we’ll start printing it.
RuneQuest and the RuneQuest Bestiary will be available for purchase by Christmas 2017.
About that time [Q1 2018], the RuneQuest Gamemaster Book should be out.
I try not to post #beholdmyconsumerism stuff any more, but the anticipation for the new RQ is killing me. This look like a high-prestige product for the new Chaosium, and they have what look like some cool products lined up. Plus, organized play, in which I might actually participate.
