I know it's not 2.0, but I really wasn't sure where to put this topic.

I've been rereading my Shadowforce Archer books, well I only just finished the first book, and I had a couple of questions for the Crafty guys.

Did the following questions have answers or were they left vague for individual campaigns to play with?

Did you guys know why the Shop broke away?

Did Conrad actually die?

What happened to Aurora while she was kidnapped?

Was there ever a Guardians book planned and if so was work started on it?

There were at least 2 more questions that I've forgotten. I should kept a post it in the book to jot down while reading.

Have you gotten to the Shop book yet?

Keep reading. If you're asking this, I know there's at least one book you haven't gotten to yet. Wink

I had a few leading thoughts about this but hadn't settled on one official story before...

There was, but it was deep enough in the product line that no meaningful work was produced before AEG discontinued SFA.

Thanks for the questions!

Series Archer will return.

it's been a good number of years since I read the SFA line and I do have all the books, but my memory isn't what it used to be.

Excellent that some of my questions will be answered.

Now if I don't forget them again in 5 or so years I won't be posting the same questions over again  Grin

So what were your thoughts on Aurora?

Damn shame SFA got discontinued before we got a better look at the Guardians. I was very intrigued by them.

My long-term memory is awful for most details - it's why I write everything down - so at this point I'd actually have to go review my notes to tell you. I still have all that stuff, but I'm intentionally not looking at any of it until we go back into development with it. If I've learned anything over the years, it's the power of focus, and right now is absolutely not the time to be looking at SA (as much as I dearly want to).

But...

Yes, it's absolutely true. Not for a while yet, but it will return.

I had a moment of sheer bliss overwhelm me.  As if the fringe itself was celebrating.

Surely for 3rd edition I would imagine.

Pat, you just made my month Cheesy

I had just started reading through the SFA books too.... Admittedly I'll probably be able to finish them two or three times over before we hear anything concrete but that's fine by me Smiley

I've been thinking about this lately. I have a few questions, if that's ok.

Is Series Archer the same as Shadowforce Archer? Or was it more like Shadowforce Archer took off in a different direction?

Assuming they are the same, would the upcoming Series Archer continue the Shadowforce Archer story?

Could you clarify what the difference between 'Series' and 'Shadowforce' is, if any?

If this stuff has already been sorted out, could you point me in that direction please?

Thank you.

I answered this one over on G+, but in case you missed it there...

Series Archer was the original name for Shadowforce Archer (the title changed before release).

The relaunch will probably be a reboot, but we're far enough out that anything is possible. It will return to its original title: Series Archer.

Why? Because I want it to. Sometimes that's enough. Smiley

I would love to see this happen, but I guess it's one of these "pet projects" that have to find a place on your schedule.

At this point, are you thinking about it as a Spycraft 3 book or as something standalone?

Saw it on G+, thank you! I'm looking forward to it, reboot or not.

Definitely Spycraft Third.

More cheering to follow if it (finally) has a "spook" character option Grin...
