RuneQuest Availability

posted Jun 02, 2012 12:42:57 by lawrence.whitaker
RuneQuest will be 456 pages, soft cover, black and white interior, colour cover.

Price is $62.00 (£40, €50). There will be a discount for pre-orders, which we hope to begin very soon.

You will be able to order RQ directly from us via the Products page of the Design Mechanism website.

Shipping within the US and Canada will be $10. International orders $15.

We will be distributing to the retail trade via our fulfilment and distribution partner, Alliance. This means RQ will find its way into game stores across the world.

RQ will be available as a bookmarked PDF close to the release date of the hard copy. If you buy the hard copy directly from us, you'll get the PDF free of charge. If you decide to order the PDF singly, it will cost $25. It will be available through DrivethruRPG and the other One Book Shelf sites.

I cannot give a precise date for publication, but it should be no later than mid-July and, hopefully, a little earlier. We will open pre-orders the minute the production files are in the hands of the printer. It usually takes about three weeks for production, so factor-in a fourth for transit to our warehouse.

We will be releasing a free PDF, available here and on Drivethru, for Games Masters. This will contain all the major charts and tables, a two page character sheet, a combat tracking sheet and an introductory scenario called 'Meeros Falling'. This scenario uses the setting found throughout the examples found in the rules and is a mixture of investigation, intrigue and combat. It directly continues 'Anathaym's Saga' as found throughout RQ6.

So, more information to come, but I'm pleased to say that RQ6 is nearly with us. Stay tuned for more details regarding release date and pre-orders.

Thank you, I've had the mailbox staked out since I bought the preorder. It's nice to know when I should start harassing the mailman. ;)

Any news about the hard copy?. I wish to have it in my hands. :)

The printers will be shipping hard copies to Alliance this week, so I'm hoping the first pre-orders (actually, all of them so far) will start to go out by the end of July at the latest.

Woot! Have you come to a decision about a Bits and Mortar program?
lawrence.whitaker said Jul 25, 2012 02:24:51
Not yet. Too many other things to handle right now.

I'm no longer waiting for Bits & Mortar -- I went ahead and ordered direct.

But it is a good program for later!

Any word on the dead tree version shipping?
lawrence.whitaker said Aug 03, 2012 17:11:58
Yes, orders are going out as we speak.

Do we have a (very rough) eta for deliveries in the UK? I know its difficult to be exact but some ball park idea would be nice if possible.
lawrence.whitaker said Aug 04, 2012 11:48:43
Its now in the hands of the mail people Vaughan. I don't want to create any false hopes by estimating incorrectly.
VaughanCockell said Aug 04, 2012 14:07:44
Fair enough. I know it is easy for people to treat rough guesstimates as guarantees when they are written down.

Got mine here in Devon (UK) this morning. Very well packaged, no damage, love the satin-feel non-glossy cover stock. :)

Got mine today. The satinised cover is great and it looks great to just flip through. The layout looks good on PDF but even better on paper. Happy days.
