Post Codex question
Is the new codex a reprint of the d20 version or does it contain new material?

It contains new material. How much I can't say exactly, but my guess would be about 10-20% more. For instance, there is an interesting deity in there named The Cobbler, he reminds me of a certain famous RPG person...

I'd say closer to 35-40% new-ish material.

Possibly more, and the presentation is MUCH better!

How about information on Outremere/New Aenoch and how life was like during the Winter Dark? That was two things I felt the original needed more on.
