(However, I am curious if 10KB is going SC2 or SC3 at this point but that's a different discussion for Alex.)
The plan is for 10kB to be a Spycraft Third product when the RPG hits. Spycraft 2.0 is a legacy system and there are no plans to release more product for it.
Would it annoy you or in any way make you feel uncomfortable if I started a thread about what posters hope to see out of the Spellbound material? Mostly I feel like it would help me wait if I faffed about discussing Spellbound with no expectations, but I understand Creator OPD and that you might feel like it would cause you to feel expected to do things.
Thanks for asking. I'm fine with it so long as
it doesn't turn into questions about the release or backlash that it's not out yet. That needs to be stated right up front, and if it goes that way I'll probably be forced to shut the thread down.
It makes me sad that this product and Spycraft Third basically prevent us from ever discussing anything related to fantasy or espionage gaming anymore. Alex posted to Facebook with a really fun article about the CIA using board games for training and the first (and only) two comments were about Spycraft Third not being out. So I had to take the post down.
This is exactly the reason we don't talk about things we have in development anymore, until they're ready to drop. It's also why I say there are only two remaining RPG product release obligations for us: Spellbound and Spycraft Third Edition. Literally every other RPG product we've ever talked about, or will ever talk about, is unconfirmed until and unless we actually release it. I expect this will be a Crafty communication mandate for the life of the company - because it's clear to us now that anticipation fatigue is real, and sharing too early directly and profoundly hurts everything we do.
Sad. I'd really love to be more open about our stuff, I'd love to include everyone in development cycles too, but good games take years to make and neither Alex nor I have any interest in reliving the processes with these two RPG products. Not ever again, for any reason.
