Ordered this last night. Skimmed the pdf. Thumbs up. Couple of questions though. I noticed Ronan Skerry is listed as an upcoming product. What formats is it being re-released in? Is digest size going to be re-released? Are the standard size ones going to have added material or will they be the same?

The Secret of Ronan Skerry is being re-released as a full sized module and this represents out first offering to be in distribution and a way for retail stores to easily order this product. The content for it is the same as the digest version and there have been no additions made to it save for maybe a piece of art or two.

When we first released Skerry as a digest we also began laying down the ground work for distribution releases. However, the digest format is not one that is popular for distribution and retail. Since the digest version was received so well, and the print run quickly sold out, it made sense to layout the scenario in a full-sized format for the purposes of distribution given its size.

The digest sized version of Skerry is officially out of print and will not be reprinted. Those of you that have it now own an official collectors item -- the first C&C title that BHP released. More importantly, those of you who own it do not need this re-release.

The other digest-sized releases we do for C&C (like the Ruins of Ramat) are likely to remain available in digest format only. There are no plans to re-release any of these as full-sized versions for the purposes of distribution. Future full-sized releases, such as the 'Trick on the Tain' for the first quarter of 2010, are likewise not going to see a digest-sized version.

That said, I hope that you and the others enjoy the 'Ruins of Ramat'. We have more stuff planned now that the machine has started to roll.

Well, the mom-and-pop printer I use for some of my modules ended up suffering from the flu last week (a husband & wife team) and did not ship me my print copies of "Ruins of Ramat," until today. I should have them first thing in the morning and everyone who has already ordered it will have their copy ship tomorrow as well.

They really are a great printer and wonderful to work with, so I can't complain. They also told me that, in the future, I should let them know when I have a deadline.
I'll post pictures of the print copies as soon as I get them.

Question... what will you do once that white box is 'full'? Or is that the plan -- these purchases just supply the excuse needed to get more C&C white boxes?
I love the digests myself, but between the APG digests, these, and a few others I've picked up along the way, I'm running out of digest-sized boxes to conveniently store them all.

Funny you should say that, I think a tiny rpg company is looking into offering some generic rpg boxes for just such emergencies.

Yes, Mori I am nearly out of White Box room for more digest-sized supplements! Good thing I have all of the space available in the Towers of Adventure box set to compensate. When I run White Box games, all I bring is the C&C Collectors and the Towers of Adventure box sets. These carry everything I need so far. I even went out and picked up a digest-sized journal to keep all of my CK game/adventure notes in. And nicely, my CK journal fits right inside the box!

We have lots of print versions. I guess I may have worded it wrong. The pdf version is now also available for folks who do not want to buy the print version.

Got the deadtree version in, and it looks great. Can't wait to see more in the digest-sized lineup.
