      @Axel Castilla That is not something we could plan for or commit to before the BackerKit survey ends this week. -HS

      @John Booth Can't confirm at this time. If the timeline goes as expected at this point, it's not something we could promise at this point. -HS

      I'm also in favor of releasing sooner the PDF versions, even if that wasn't planned.

      Due to the delay for the physical copies, if you could confirm this before the closing of the BackerKit, likely it would result in more DFRPG PDF sales.

      There's been an enormous resurgence of RPG dice gaming in recent years. The likes of which hasn't been since I started playing back in the 1970's. From projection screen custom cinematics, to flat laid 40" HDTVs for directly laid play piece maps, to custom gaming tables that have blown my mind. And let's not forget the cosplay element. RPG gaming is and has been a great way for family to bond and learn. It's going to be an honor bringing a news GURPs to a new generation looking to break the bonds of conventional gaming. ^.^

      I probably shouldn't complain about the delay, as I'm generally of the opinion "better done correctly than quickly", but I do find it unfortunate that this drops SJG's ratio of on-time Kickstarters from 50% (big miss on ODE, hit on Car Wars Arenas) down to 33%....

      Will backers attending Gen Con be able to pick up their copies, even if we're not at the "private game" level? (Hoping to play it at the convention. :) )

      Take your time on this, the delay is for the right reasons.

      I think we all want to see the best version of Dungeon Fantasy.
      So August or even September/October is okay by me. �

      I concur about the PDFs to we backers. The Autarch Lairs and Encounters Kickstarter did this, and backers combed them for mistakes.

      This is a great opportunity to release PDF versions to the kickstarters and get feedback on formatting choices.

      @Ronnke: Ditto. They should be ready well ahead of the print version and ship for free.

      Is there any chance we can get the PDF versions early?

      I think doing it right is the best way to go -- especially with the PDFs we already have.

      Have a happy Thanksgiving!

      @Matt Whalley It's primarily editing time. This isn't wholesale material changes and things like that, but formatting, readability, and making it a better product for both existing players and new players. -HS

      Could you let us know what improvements we will be getting in return for the delay?

    15. Joe Walsh

      D'oh! By "Dungeon Fantasy subscription," of course I meant "Pyramid subscription." See what happens when you don't take enough time to deliver the best version of what you're doing? :)

    16. Joe Walsh

      That's disappointing, but in my case I feel I've already gotten my money's worth with all the PDFs and the Dungeon Fantasy subscription ("I want it all" level stuff), so I'm kinda-sorta OK with waiting. August makes more sense as far as the traditional toy/game holiday release cycle, too, so maybe it'll help with the initial roll-out and improve our odds for follow-on products.

      Regardless, I'm happy that the folks at SJGames are always careful about product quality and look forward to seeing the results of your efforts next August!
