When is a updated Rulebook due out, and will it include rule updates posted in Comms & CLs?

There's no date for the new rulebook. The earliest that it might come out is I believe Summer 2010. But don't take that as an actual release date because one hasn't been stated.

If it is at all possible to get an updated rulebook, I would VERY HAPPILY buy one and probably 2 (1 for home 1 for traverlling). There have been enough changed in the game now that a new set of rules would be helpful (even though it might become outdated next year when other products come out.)

If it was only Chapters 1-6, that would be fine by me, scenarios and ship descriptions would probably make it too large and scare looking : )

Thanks,
Pat

I should add that in the meantime, you can get all of the rules updates in the sticky near the top of this forum - "Briefing #1 Rules Update file". The only rules missing that I'm aware of would be the new ones in Communique #32 (including the controversial EM change). The Briefing #1 product also contains the same changes to the rules that are listed in that update topic.

I'd like the ship descriptions and scenarios. Sometimes when I'm bored I read Ship descriptions and have to switch books when I'm finished with one Wink

I think I'd also be up for buying a new rulebook which incorporated the changes and clarifications that we've seen in communique, on this forum and in Briefing #1. The ship descriptions certainly do add a certain something to the book (and the game in general), including a list of names for each ship type - I think that's pretty cool. They just give it that little bit of extra universe-depth and context without going too far and taking up masses of space. Also if the "new" rulebook was to be the standard edition included in the "border" sets from then on, it'd make sense to have the ship descriptions in it, at least for those ships which appear in the products that the rulebook covers, unless there was to be a specific "update" version to provide the rules updates to players who already have earlier versions complete with the ship descriptions and scenarios.

A "rev5" rulebook is definitely in the works, but the exact timing is still under question. I am sorry I can't be any more detailed than that. Sad

Most likely that rulebook would include sections 1-6, empire "introductions" (but no ships) in section 7, and the introductory information in section 8. The actual ship descriptions and individual scenarios would appear later in a different book or books.

I suppose it will get to the point where you'll need a separate booklet for ship descriptions and/or scenarios once enough ships/scenarios have been added to the game. It is to be hoped that the rule booklet on its own will never quite get that big though! Nice to know there's a new rulebook planned for sometime, anyhow. Smile
