Steve has said that the finishing touches on organization and writing should be complete by end of business day, which for him means sometime early Friday morning, three weeks from now, but at least it is nearly complete with everything (assuming) but layout, editing, art, and printing... that makes it very close.

The book is going through editing. Chapters are being turned over for layout/art as I complete them.

Hmm, I'm wanting to order this, but I can't get through via internet, email, or phone. No replies to email, wondering if they are at a Con or something, maybe exceptionally busy. Internet, maybe need a plug in for Firefox? And on the phone I only get "user needs to organize their mailbox" or some message like this.

Any ideas of how to proceed cause at this point I'm plain out of ideas.

In my (admittedly limited) experience, if you email Steve an order, he'll reply within a week.

Have you tried contacting TLG via this method?

Troll Lord Games

1818 Taylor Street #143

Little Rock, AR 72207-4637

501-680-6597

This info is right from their contact page. I dialed them up and it rang, so it should be working.

Good luck Greylord!

Not as quickly as you guys would like, but moving along! There's some excellent stuff in this book. I think everyone will be very happy with it.

Meanwhile, I'm plugging away.

Thanks, Rhu!

Um...did I say how awesome this book is yet? It's great to be the editor. I get sneak peeks at all the coolness. Really loving it.

Looking forward to seeing it myself. I am envious of those who have laid their eyes upon it before the rest of us.

Seriously, thanks in advance to all those who have worked on this monumental project that is the CKG.

11/10/10 and getting closer and closer to the BIG month. Please oh please tell me I will feel it in my grubby little hands in the next month or so.

If I do not have the CKG in my hands by Dec 25th I will steal Christmas and frame the Trolls for the foul deed!

Do not make this the year the Trolls stole Christmas!

I would be very surprised, at the rate it's being edited and going to layout, if it didn't make the Christmas deadline. Either way, next years cons will be debuting a lot of new products, including the elusive CKG....2011 will be a great year for TLG I suspect.

Looking forward to the Troll Tusk CKG update. I am betting Christina is making steady progress with the editing.

Also don't forget about Tim Burns! There's two editors on this puppy.

The latest Troll's Tusk states that the CKG may go over 300 pages... I think that is AWESOME! It should.

Yep, this puppy is so big I had to call for reinforcements! We're moving along. I'm on C9 now, and I've asked Steve to send me another chapter.

not to be a doubting-thomas, but i'll believe there is a CKG when there IS a CKG. my hopes have been dashed SO many times with this that i have no hope left. it's sad to say, but true.

I can assure you that chapters of the text exist and are being edited and sent to layout. I see no reason to doubt there will be an actual book when we are very close and the Trolls do their own printing.
