FWIW I thank you for the upgraded PDF. The quality improvement is notable and appreciated. It runs wonderfully on Goodreader on my iPad1.

My email arrived. Physical copies of preorders ship out on 9 July.

What I specifically don't think we'll be able to do much anymore is post-production proofing. I'd love to, I really would, but it demands that a product essentially be trapped in that limbo between digital and print for what the market is telling us is an untenable period. Perhaps we'll eventually figure out how to get the system down to something that folks find tolerable, but based on this experience we're clearly not there yet, and we'd much rather deliver what we can promise than continue to experiment at a time when you just need us producing.

It's a bit of a catch 22. MAG was such a new product and so core that it really benefitted from that process. But it also took much longer than it would for many RPG products.

Maybe having a much tighter plan time wise would help i.e. release the book and allow only two weeks for comments and then proceed with the changes and print. If major issues are raised, this could always be modified as you went. IIRC Legends of the Wulin did something like that and had the book off to print in March as a result.

Woot. Good news.

In the future it's unlikely that we'll actually speak about products at all until they're ready to go to press, or we're ready to send out the digital edition ahead of sending the book to press, which is effectively the same thing. It's unfortunate because it means we won't ever be able to include you guys in the process again, but that appears to be the reality of game publishing today.

That's understandable. FWIW from my experiences from the customer side of things, it doesn't need to be an all or nothing approach. I have had positive experiences with other RPG companies where there has been an announcement and then delays, even delays of similar magnitude to those you have experienced.

It's just a question of what you do with that time. The fan proofing has already proven its value with the MAG. I hope you don't drop this idea completely. It would seem like cutting off your nose to spite face. Other things might be of value too, provided that they are managed well.

No. I beleive the preorder books are expected to ship in late July/early August.

Great news.

Has the updated PDF been sent out?

Not yet. We had a "pretty soon" on 3 May and a "soon-ish" on 16 May (which I could have sworn was a "very soon" when initially posted).

How long is the wait for the MAG hardback copy? I ordered one 4 weeks ago and I'm wondering how long I should expect to wait for the physical copy.

They have been sent to print yet, as far as we have been told. All that can be said for certain is that you should have physical copies before Gencon 2012 (2.5 months away).

We replied to this, didn't we? If not, I apologize.

You certainly did with a "pretty soon". Two weeks seemed like a good guess at what that meant ;P

Have the books gone to print? Any progress with the PDF?

Bueller?

Which leaves only 2-3 weeks leeway, with a "sometimes a bit more" in there too. As said, seems a little tight.

Without intending to sound negative, are Crafty cutting it a little tight to have print versions of Mistborn at Gencon 2012? I thought a three month turn around from sending files to the printer to having print copies would be a minimum safe distance.

EDIT My brother started to wonder about what happens when you throw only sixes (challenge roll). Is it automatic success or do you have to reroll or what? Didn't find any rule concerning this (might've missed it though, if so, which page i should be looking at?).

Its just an extension of the core rule on page 144. You fail as your Result (you got no match on dice showing 1 to 5) does not exceed the Difficulty. However, the Nudges would reduce the Complications arising from failure significantly.
