We are so grateful for your continued patience. We have been working hard behind the scenes, but we regret our updates have suffered for it. Please check your Backerkit accounts for our first big digital reward: https://raidersofrlyeh.backerkit.com/

Yesterday we uploaded the Core Rules Document — weighing in at 275 pages — which includes everything one needs for creating and customizing adventurers. It also integrates all of the wonderful feedback and notes we received WAY back in the first play test. We have several people to thank for play testing and rules editing, as well as for the backers who just offered their support; we will make sure to feature you in a future update and in the final book.

In late 2015, an updated version of this PDF will be provided for free online (getting the basic rules into as many hands as possible). 

Note that the fully illustrated print edition and accompanying PDF (our next big release), which includes more gamemaster tools, the sourcebook, adventure hooks, and a complete mythos bestiary, is estimated to be twice this page count. We’re heading back into the workroom to continue work on that next release, but please let us know if you have trouble accessing Backerkit. We want to make sure everyone has access to the document.

Also note, our Special Thanks needs to be updated in the document; a few key people were left out unintentionally, and we will remedy the error in the next version.
