      I'm really hoping planet apocalypse might offer some kind of crossover with TGW to get a bit of the hype back going here. Of course some improved communication around the current status and what's being worked on currently would be much appreciated as well.

      @Ruinaes I'm with you. Now that OS3 is done I'm back into hype mode for this!

    3. Ruinaes 1 day ago

      With OS3 wrapped up, I'm really looking forward to more updates for TGW! Between receiving OS2 stuff and pledging OS3 stuff, I kind of forgot about TGW and all the reasons I'm really excited for it.

      Let's get to it!

      @Alex: No, more likely it'd be in a potential future Gods War equivalent.

      Will the crossover rules be in the Onslaught 3 Omega-er Rulebook?

    8. Erik 4 days ago

      @Jordan: Onslaught 3 is at a pivotal point in finishing up the campaign (making PG some money) hopefully they can shift some attention back to TGW once OS3 closes.

      At least, I want to see how it's going on? Did it even start?

      Some insights about WHY the project is late would be appreciated as well... I don't care about delays, but the lack of communication does good to no one.

      I just want an update giving us a timeline. There has been non stop updates for Cthulhu Wars Onslaught 3, why can't we get even one update for The God's War?

      @Patrick: People don't read disclaimers. The bitching primarily comes from impatient people who see the estimated delivery date and just assume it'll 100% by delivered by then.

      Despite miniature heavy Kickstarters rarely delivering on time. And retail released board games also getting delayed all the time.

      Answer: I'm sorry for the delay we are still waiting on Crowdox to sort this problem out.

      I got my PDFs, sort of. I made the mistake of looking at a couple of them at work before I got home to download them. Once home, I could download all but those two. For those, I got a message indicating that I had exceeded the number of downloads. I've sent a couple of emails to CrowdOx support, but haven't heard anything back.

      I still don't have my Glorantha PDFs. Support sent me one note saying there was an error affecting a small number of folks and they were looking into it, but nothing since even after I followed up twice. Any ideas on how to expedite this? It's been two weeks now, and I'm getting very frustrated, as this is a digital product and should be straightforward to resolve.

    18. Sarcasmorator 6 days ago

      "Should" is a qualifier. And darn, it didn't go quickly! That's why the word "estimate" is used.

    19. Patrick Swinkels 7 days ago


      That will be the day when producers will STOP putting text like the following in the "risks & challenges" part of their project:

      "The miniatures themselves have been designed, sculpted, and prepared for final tooling. We just need the money to pay for the last production steps!

      The game was conceived in 2014, and has been play-balanced and tested thoroughly. Given the expertise on the subject matter of the key team leaders, finishing the product should go quickly."

    20. Sarcasmorator 7 days ago

      Someday—SOMEDAY—I hope there will be a Kickstarter where people notice the word "estimated" in front of the word "delivery," and remember it when there's a delay, and hold their complaints.

    21. AStarks on August 7

      @Greyskull most Kickstarters, and creative projects in general (the new Star Trek show, Mario games, Star Wars: Episode VIII, etc), get delayed. You just rarely hear about it, both because those investors tend to keep more things behind closed doors, and because it's not really newsworthy (it being so common).

      If they choose to do a favor for us, great! But I don't think it's reasonable to expect :p

      You're late again for this KS (as you have been for all of your KS). You could definitely be kind and send the Arachne Solara to all of your patient backers for free. Just saying...

      To late to get the Arachne Solara or not?

      To buy the Arachne Solara yes but if you were suppose to get it because you were subscribe to the newsletter before the campaign I can still look into it for you. Email us at

      Hi Guys,

      @Jonathan. Thank you for the detailed suggestion!

      Cedric. The Guide gives the best overview of Glorantha, albeit at an encyclopaedic level. The Introduction (page 8) and Mythos and History (page 113) gives you the background from where you can then pick and choose which bits of Glorantha to delve into next. The Atlas is the collected maps from the Guide.

      For a more, in-depth detail of specific cultures...

      For the Orlanthi cultures of central Genertela (the northern continent) you can read King of Sartar, History of the Heorting Peoples, and The Book of Heorting Mythology.

      For an ever deepening look at the mytho-history of the Solar culture of central Genertela and the Lunar Empire which took over them you can read The Glorious ReAscent of Yelm, The Fortunate Succession, and The Entekosiad. The last two I found pretty hard core.

      The Middle Sea Empire is lighter background material on that Second Age Empire and the God Learners. Handy when you're reading the "Jrusteli Isles" chapter in the Guide (page 501).

      Arcane Lore collects very early work and a speculative take on HeroQuesting.

      Got the pdf’s! For the Glorantha uninitiated, any advice what to read first (or a reading order)?

      If you are pretty sure you subscribed email support and they can check to you.

      My would definitely like it by date was Christmas (New Year to be precise). My really want it by date is late February, when I co-run a three day convention I would like to play it at. More than once. Arthur's dates suggest just possible and possible. The pessimist in me says what's my personal next critical date? (My best guess for the irony is shipped by my convention date, but arriving after.)

    32. Golbata on July 30

      It seems that I wasn't subscribed at the newsletter at that time (just before and afterwards I probably). Would it be possible to purchase an Arachna Solara at the Spiel? Thanks.

    34. Steve Hammatt on July 29

      Thanks for the update, Arthur!

      Also, I can confirm that I've received all the PDFs now, thanks. And I didn't have my free Arachne Solara but Petersen Games support were very helpful in resolving that for me (now visible in my CrowdOx listing).

      That sounds pretty good to me. Really looking forward to it as a Glorantha/Runequest fan since 1978!

    36. Erik on July 28

      Thanks Arthur. We know you'll do everything you can to get it to us as early as possible. At least the PDFs will keep me busy for a while.

      Would love to have this for Christmas

    38. Arthur Collaborator on July 28

      BALLPARK estimate - first quarter 2018, but POSSIBLY fourth quarter 2017

      It will not be later than CW O3 for sure, which should follow its schedule pretty close.

      @Steve: Ok, that would knock a couple of months off the total. I'd be surprised if the production had started though.

    40. Steve Hammatt on July 28

      @Mark Buckley: Back in Update #59 (April 6) we were told that about 21 models were "in the early parts of tooling, and the rest ... will soon enter the pre-tooling stage".

      So since that was back in April I would hope that we're a lot further along the process than OS3. But it would be nice to have a further update on timescales, even if PG don't want to commit to a shipping estimate just yet. Optimistically it would be nice if the 5 months for tooling and production started in April, meaning Sept for assembly and shipping Oct/Nov/Dec.

    41. Missing avatar

      Mark Buckley
      on July 27

      Sure, OS3 could be later, but given they say that everything is ready to go after the KS I've got a decent amount of faith in their timescale.

    42. Erik on July 27

      @Mark Buckley: That's assuming OS3 actually shipped on that date. I know they've made changes to make it China ready but that's still assuming a lot.

    43. Erik on July 27

      I'm guessing at this point Spring 2018 is the most likely, which is disappointing but not entirely unexpected given the delays met by their KS for CW and OS2.

    44. Missing avatar

      NasosP on July 27

      So, it's been now too long we don't have some sort of schedule for the delivery of the games. I'm not talking about precise month and day, more of an educated guess on a... say quarter. Are we talking before Christmas, Q1 2018, later?

      Regardless of how often we get updates these days, it'd be nice to have some sort of an estimation team at this point from the PG.

      Mark Buckley

      If so they won't be much more before CW OS3

      on July 25

      Well, comparing to the production times for CW OS3, where they have:

      - tooling (2 months)
      - production (3 months)
      - CNY (1 month Feb)
      - assembly (1 month)
      - shipping (~3 months)

      Now they aren't starting OS3 tooling etc until Sept, so I guess it depends on how long along the path above is for TGW.

      TBH I think it is unlikely that we will escape the dreaded CNY.

      It's almost August, but we don't have yet a new timetable. Some info would be appreciated. Should we expect this to be shipped before Christmas? Chinese New Year?
