Will there be an earlier edition conversion guide to make it easy to convert the catalogue of 1st edition adventures to 3rd?

Sorry, no. We don't look back. We've learned the hard way that it's a massive time sink that only serves a small part of the audience. More importantly, though, is the fact that new editions usually have new intentions - at least for us - and that means there are likely ways in which the editions simply don't speak well to one another. That doesn't produce clean conversion, and smoothing over those rough edges in any official capacity almost always lessens both editions as a result.

Now, if you guys want to build those sorts of resources, we'll host 'em. But they're not in the cards for us.

Nothing to report on a release date yet. Alex and I are hard at work on Mistborn and Z-Corps right now. We'll be swinging back to Spycraft in the autumn.

This edition will feature more adventures than Spycraft 2.0, for sure. Probably not the number we did for Classic, but still a bunch more than 2.0. Smiley

Tron audiophiles might appreciate this

Holy hell! I guess I know what I'm listening to against tomorrow's writing! Smiley

It's an exclusive, which means you have to dedicate days prior to learning the arcane process by which it's acquired, then spend at least a day in a line to find out where the actual line is, followed by a treasure hunt underwater on the Moon, and after all that you get one shot in twenty million of actually grabbing the right bullet out of two thousand fired in your general direction. While naked. And covered in Crisco. And standing on one toe. In a snowstorm.

In other words, exclusives = epic fail. No one in their right mind goes after them.

But then, no one in their right mind does panels either. Wink

No diss intended, but I'm somewhat confused anyone thought that project would launch.

No diss taken. It's one of the two main reasons I didn't pursue it (the other being that I don't ever want to live in Arizona).

Don't forget, we're talking a franchise that at the time had kept multiple TV series on air for over a decade

Yeah, that's definitely the money stat. Stargate SG-1 remains the longest running TV series in US science fiction history. That's no small potatoes to the folks with the pocketses.

Oh, don't misunderstand me, I wasn't trying to imply I found you guys slow... this is just my characteristic obsessive excitement... resorting-to-bargaining level obsessed.

Sorry if that sounded defensive. It was intended to be informative, observational. Conversational, even. Smiley

Because I'm in the mood, y'know what would have been an interesting MMO?  Stargate Worlds.  I dunno, just felt like bringing that up today for some reason.

I'm so glad I didn't pursue that gig. Such a tragedy.

Our turnaround from completion to release is pretty fast. Admittedly, some even smaller houses basically finish something and have it out the following Tuesday - even if they finish on Monday night - but that's not a great way to promote a release, nor is it all that helpful for final QA, spinning up new projects before the deluge of customer service for the current one starts, and absorbing the myriad last-minute issues that crop up with even the simplest release. Wink

Compared to a house like Wizards, we're blindingly fast. I know from experience that their first drafts are often done as much as two years out from release.

Of course, they don't talk candidly as much as we do. So there's that. Smiley

For those who aren't familiar, we reach out for help from time to time. We ask for various specialist assistance in exchange for product credit and a copy of the digital edition of the product featuring your contribution.

We are currently in need of such a person (or perhaps a couple people) for Z-Corps.

Details are over in the Bounties forum, which you can find here.

Thanks in advance!

Hey everyone,

We're prepping the gear section of Z-Corps and need someone to verify the accuracy and presentation of some firearms images. We may also some folks to verify additional weapon data and related information.

Credit will be given in the rulebook to those chosen to help, along with a free copy of the digital edition of the core release.

Interested parties should drop us a line at pat -at- crafty-games -dot- com.

Thanks in advance!

Gentry here's the problem... I rolled a 20 but I'm all out of narration points, so that means the character cannot critical, so critical are not actually tied to character abilities their tied to gamist mechanics ruining immersion every time an issue like that comes up.

It's clear you don't like the kinds of games we make. So... Why are you here? Why not go settle down with a game you actually like?

Moving on, CoD: AW Future tech trailer.  Some good Spycraft fodder right here. 

Nice! Bookmarked. Smiley

Maybe we on the forums should make a promise not to ask about Spellbound for a while?  By this point, I don't think Crafty needs any reminding that we're all eager for it.  I also don't think they need any reminding that it's late.  The only thing we can accomplish by bringing it up all the time is to aggravate everyone.  Personally, I trust them to let us know whenever there is something to know.

Thanks for that. We appreciate it.
