Still behind schedule, but making progress...

We are still cranking away. Tome of Blighted Horrors and the Crucible are in layout for SW and PF, and 5e is being converted. Horror in the Sinks, Crooked Nail and Children of the Harvest are through development and off to final conversion for SW and 5e as well, and the main book is approximately 75% edited.

The players guide, DM guide and PHB all come out of the main book (with some changes), so are also in the hopper. All the card texts for the Maladies are written.

Lots of moving pieces, and we hope to have some more PDFs out soon.

We know we are late on this one guys—it’s been a comedy of disasters with 5e conversion, medical school for Greg and other factors. Suffice to say we will get this done—and while we hate being late—sometimes late is better than on time. The whole team insists on quality, so we are making sure everything matches up with the rest of the Lost Lands and is internally consistent. Some of these things go well on production, some simply do not. The issue here is purely on the editing, conversion and production side and has hit a few bottlenecks along the way that have slowed us down. We have added several resources to the production chain to speed things up.

So…we apologize for the lateness, but have faith, this monster will get there eventually. I don’t want to promise a date yet (I will after the main book is done in layout), but we are moving along. Greg should post an update in the next 3-4 weeks (once all the modules and monster book are completed).

      @Patrick that is why I a freaking out. I don't use digital copies. I guess my campaign will just have to be a year behind schedule

      Q2-Q3 would be for print copies. Keep in mind that the PDFs will be released as soon as they are ready.

      Wait-- Q3?

      Ugh.

      How in the world did we slip from "after the New Year" by an entire 6 months in the span of one update?

      That's not just a production breakdown, that's a communications breakdown.

      Q2-Q3 I think

      Is Q1 still looking like a reasonable possibility or has it been pushed to Q2-Q3 realistically?
