Post Re: Q/A With the Trolls
I was informed to post this question here where the big trolls play:

Dear Trolls,

I bought the M&T 2nd ($15.95) and PHB 3rd pdfs ($10) in mid to late 2008 on DrivethruRPG and I am wondering if there is a way to upgrade the purchased pdfs to the new releases? As I understand it the newer versions have some updated information, corrected typos as well as better layout (which I felt was lacking in the releases I own).

Cheers

Bye papercut. I'm sorry you feel entitled to updated products that others are paying for, particularly when there was no implied or stated contract giving you access to future versions (yes versions, this is not a simple errata) of these products. Enjoy your new game.

Protip: Insulting the guys who you are trying to get something from is counterproductive and rude.

Papercut,

I do apologize for not getting back to you on this. It is rare I work on weekends and this had escaped my notice.

To answer your questions. No. We do not offer free upgrades/downloads for product unless specifically noted in the copy for said product. To date, only one product offers such, that is the CKG. Concerning your product in particular, the layout changed but this does not in any way detract from your printing (I still use the 1st printing myself); the content added to the 4th printing is all offered on the site for free download.

Thank you,
Steve

Yes. I'm going to try to run one of my giant 20+ people games if I can get it together. But it will likely not be on the schedule, I'll have to announce it here and keep folks posted.

Hey Steve. Hook it up to a live feed so some of us in this cursed frozen tundra called Canada can play. :)

Couple of questions about the C&C Complete Set:

1.) Will it be available at conventions (such as Origins :))?

2.) Will it ever be available at Amazon?

What is the current status of "Amazing Adventures" (Pulp Siege)? Do you have a rough ETA for release? I'm really looking forward to it!

I'll be running some C&C at both conventions. I believe I have some demo booths at Origins I need to enlist people to aid me with!

Post Re: Q/A With the Trolls
I posted this on another thread, but this seemed a better place for it.

First, I'm quite impressed with the quality of material of the new CKG. However, the printing quality in my hardcover copy is terrible. The artwork looks horrible, and the gray shading used in tables is not uniform. It's really one of the worst print jobs I've seen in a finished product. Did I get a bad copy, or do they all suffer from poor print quality (in comparison my copy of the Players Handbook has excellent print quality).

To drive home my point here, when I got my PHB a couple years ago my first reaction was the quality of the print and the book. While B&W the artwork is excellent in the PHB. When I got the CKG my first reaction was how terrible it looked. In terms of print quality these books are polar opposites!

Post Re: Q/A With the Trolls
Yeah, I posted this concern as well. Every time I open the book, I am giddy over the content. 8-)

However, the quality of the print is sub par in my copy. For example, a table will have several shades of grey/black through out. Seemed like it 1/2 of the page is dull and the other 1/2 is dark.... :(

Hey there, my group is getting ready to run C&C again (I get to play, not run this time!)

We'll all be at Gen Con....what sort of goodies can we expect for sale at the TLG booth? I know I want one of the C&C Completes if you'll have them...

The new maps of Airdhe will be there along with the CKG of course. Some new modules are likely. Im not 100 percent about the Completes, but I would think that Steve would bring some. And I THINK Engineering Castles will be there, but not 100 percent on that one right now either.

Since we are on the subject, I have a group that is looking for Players Handbooks. Any idea what the price tag may be ath Gen Con? I got a great deal last year. I need to know because they are giving me cash to bring with me.

Thanks!

I am hoping that the landscape hardback screens will be there at GenCon. I know the hardback portrait style ones were at Origins, and Steve said he didn't have time to get the landscape versions around for the con. I am assuming they will be at GenCon, so heres to hoping!

At GenCon, Steve mentioned that the Adventurer's Backpack was also at the top of the To Do list, and a new Codex. I would rather have a new Codex, but the AB would sell much better I am sure. I failed to ask about the new monster book though, which I am looking forward to in a big way.

Under the Master of Shadows advantage in the Castle Keeper's Guide is states that "This advantage stacks with the high-level illusionist ability
solidify shadows. A spell cast by a high level illusionist with this advantage
can do more than 100% normal damage." However, I cannot find this high level illusionist ability in either the Castle Keeper's Guide nor in the Player's Hand Book. Am I missing it somewhere, or was this a typo from an ability that was removed from the book and not cottected under this particular entry?

Any word on this or on Amazing Adventures? I thought I recall someone saying the Amazing Adventures was on track for a Gencon release? Did I miss it? Is it out?
