Since MRSA will either kill you or burn itself out of your system in a few years, no.

...I was going for popular things in the news that are resistant to things that try to kill it.  Holy hell Krensky! lol

Any chance of Spellbound coming out in the next few hours, or are we looking at "End of May"?

I don't think either situation is likely Smiley

In mid-May is much more likely (NOTE: DO NOT TAKE THAT AS GOSPEL). The reason you haven't seen them is not because we're not working on them, or because they're not written, but because the massive effort of editing 12 files totaling over 150,000 words simultaneously is actually kinda tough.

This sort of commentary and questioning is actually a really good example of why we don't talk about firm deadlines anymore. It's hard not to feel like a disappointment to you and to ourselves when a few weeks slippage leads us here.

Smart policy. Nothing worse than having customer expectations that do not get met.

Even if it is 2016...my money has your name on it.

12 files.  150,000 words.  They did it.  They actually created a book that can be classified as a blunt, 2H weapon.

Well it would if it was printed out. At the moment, it's just something that deals subdual and stress damage for every day you wait for it.  Grin

Generally, the further back in the production channel something is the less reliable our dates are (even internally). Spellbound is currently in edits and still has layout after that, and I would argue that any release date given before layout is 100% complete is by definition shaky - even if everything goes according to plan.

This week alone I've had to deal with major unexpected house work with a few of half a dozen guys. Nothing I could have planned for but still something that impacts the schedule. Just how it goes.

the wait is real... one of my players is wanting to play the reaper, but the amount of reaper spells is super low. (Currently) Smiley

My question is, what was the design thought process behind how the spell progression works between the reaper and conjouer? (and the rest of them if the pattern follows.)

For those who don't want to go rummaging through the spellbound preview pdf, what I'm talking about is: the classes can to choose to either A) increase the max level of spells they can cast, or B) get a spell casting feat.

my personal guess is that a lot of niffty feats that will allow you to cast higher level spells at a draw back to your character in the up incoming spellbound book.

Compared to the Mage, specialist casters start at Level 1 instead of level 0 for the spells they can cast, leaving them with an empty slot that the option to choose a spellcasting feat instead of bumping the Blah of Power a grade mitigates.

It's also an interesting alternative should the player (or GM) simply not want to use higher-level spells.

Still a more accurate release time than Palladium. Smiley
