Crafty Games has an update on the Mistborn Adventure Game, the new roleplaying experience based on the best-selling novel series by Brandon Sanderson...
Since the release of the Digital Edition we've been hard at work updating the game to incorporate reader feedback, correcting small issues that cropped up during the design, and generally making sure the end product is the best it can possibly be. We're all fans first, just like you, and it's imperative to us that anything with the Mistborn name on it share the same quality, care, and majesty Brandon delivers in his novels.
All direct orders have been updated now and a new version of the Digital Edition is live at both our storefronts. Anyone who’s previously purchased a version of the game that includes the Digital Edition should have received an email notifying them of where to download it. If you don’t see this email by early Saturday, June 2, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get it sorted.
The new version of the Digital Edition contains many changes, a few large and several small, which we previously posted about on our forums. There's also an index (which we couldn't include previously because page pointers tend to shift when you're still making changes to a book), as well as an appendix that summarizes the core rules of the game without the walkthrough guidance. The novel characters section - Book 3, Chapter 8 - has been overhauled for easier reading and has the added benefit of being much more attractive, with full page art for most of the major personalities from the canon.
All these upgrades have been folded into the physical editions of the book as well, and our printer has been working diligently to ensure the finished work enjoys the same high quality as the content (which again, we thank you for making so special).
Anyone curious what the finished books will look like - at least partly - should visit our Facebook Page, where we've posted pictures of the proofs that we approved just last week.
So when will the books be in stores, and when will they ship to direct customers? Just last afternoon we received word that we should expect the softcovers back to us around June 18, with the hardcovers near July 9. Given the time it takes to gather distribution orders and ship product to stores, this means you'll see the game in your FLGS around the first few weeks of July (remember, only the softcover is going into stores - the hardcover is available exclusively from us).
Direct orders will be shipped as soon as we receive the books, and without the extra time involved in pushing product into stores this means direct order customers should see their books go out from us within a few days of the dates above. Shipping times being what they are, U.S. customers should expect their books in the mail within a week or so, based on their chosen shipping method, and overseas customers should add 1-2 weeks based on their location. You can find more precise estimates based on your location and chosen shipping method at the USPS Services page.
We will of course keep you all posted as orders are fulfilled, and we're also available for any questions you may have.
So... to those of you who've already supported us in this wondrous new endeavor, we thank you! Anyone who's been waiting for concrete news before ordering, or who's now intrigued enough to jump on board, can place an order at the following link...
