PDF is live!

Posted by FASA Corporation (Creator)

Modern life is very interesting. On the one hand, the internet makes possible collaboration with a group of people around the world. On the other hand, that global collaboration can take some time when we're dealing with time zones.

Case in point, our layout person is in England. I'm in Maine, five hours behind him. Other members of the team are in the midwest or even on the west coast of the US. It can be difficult to get things pushed through as quickly as we would like when somebody in Oregon has revisions that need to be factored into the book, but they send it off while the layout guy is in bed. Sure, he gets to it when he gets up (in the early AM Eastern time), but we have to wait for the west coast to get a chance to look at it for final approvals...

What I'm saying is, sorry for the extra couple of days. All of that aside, the official ED4 Player's Gudie (PDF version) is live. Here's a direct link to the product page in our web shop.

For backers, if you have registered an account on our web store, you should be getting an email in the next 24-48 hours with a coupon code that will give 100% off the price of the PDF. If you have not yet created an account on our web store, you will need to do so in order to get the PDF. Some have expressed concerns with regard to registration on our shop, and we are addressing them -- it's just going to take us an extra couple of days.

The dead-tree version of the book will be going out to the printer later this week, and we expect it to be back in March, with fulfillment to backers starting as soon as it is in (our printer is in the U.S.).

If you are following this to see when the books go live because you missed the campaign, dead-tree pre-orders and PDF/Print bundle options are planned for our store, and will likely be up before too much longer, so be patient, and keep an eye on our website or social media (Facebook, etc) for more details.

Thank you all for your patience as we hammered this one out. Back to work on the GM Guide for me!

      Is anyone else having difficulties downloading the file? The zip file is showing a file size of zero k

      I think like Maxime. Since they gave us the beta book, I don't mind 1-2 days. They were fair before.

      @Shane, are you actually mad for a 1-2 additional days waiting period for the same product you already received in Jan (but with pretty pictures)? Come on, give them a break, here.

      I don't know what engine their shop is using, but I'm pretty sure the PDF had to be set up on the store prior to making the coupons, because those coupons apply on the store's product. What were they going to do, purposely block people from purchasing it until the coupons are all ready?

      The store team is working hard to get the coupons out. We ran into a slight hiccup with the plug-in that lets the coupon code only be valid for backers. For future books we expect the coupon to go out at the same time the book goes live for general purchase.

      Congrats! The start of great things.

      The PDF being available for general purchasers before backers can get it sits poorly with me, considering the money we put into it.

      Are you planning to get the other PDFs to the backers at least at the same time as everyone else in future ?

    7. Ikalios

      Thanks, I'll wait for informations as you get them :)

      If you backed for 3 books, you will get electronic copies of everything as they are released. I am trying to get the GM Guide to a point where we can have a pre-art/pre-release layout available to backers. In terms of print copies, plan is currently for U.S. residents to get them as they are available, and we're looking at options for international backers to balance the desire to get your books to you, and not take a bath on the ridiculous status of international shipping.

      As I get more information on that, I will definitely share.

      I got a question, this is only for the player guide. If we paid for the 3 books and we paid to have them shipped together, how much time will it take ? Are they almost done too or are they not even started ? Thank you
