Yep, that you are -- it tells people more about why it is a Good Thing on e23.

But people tend to slide easily into "don't forget to fix this rule" and "please make that rule clearer" and that sort of request would be lost here.

The WYN Radiation Zone rules will be added.

It will include all the CRUL rulings to date

The updated January RRB also be available from the ADB store as a hard copy and will replace the item shipped to stores. Remember that we print on demand so there is no need to wait for inventory of old books to run out.

More F&E goodness! The 2010 rulebook for Federation & Empire is now available on e23.

http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=ADB5006-2

This is the updated 160-page rulebook for the core game, released during 2010. It has been fully updated with all published rulings, and includes a few rules from various expansions which we decided needed to be in the main game box. (This does not include the expansion rulebooks.) This high-resolution PDF is fully searchable, making it easy to find any rule.

The Captain's Log #42 Supplemental File is now up on e23.
http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=ADB5742-S

Four pages of designer's notes. Deleted scenes from one story in CL#42, and a sequel to a story in an earlier issue. After-action reports. Mean Jean is not finished smacking the SFU writers for their failure to use proper punctuation. Three pages of FC Omega playtest rules (along with two new Omega ships). Two more pages of tactics about gunboats fighting an eel. Four more Battle Groups. F&E Hurricane designer notes. Three pages of F&E playtest rules for ISC WAR. Four new SFB SSDs from EY Simulator Empires. Three new FC pinwheel Ship Cards. Two new ships for Starmada.

[edited to fix some "Mean Jean" issues] Smile

Wooohooo! Tholian Ship Card Pack #1 is now up on e23!

http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=ADB4810

Six ships for the Tholians, those mysterious extra-galactic xenophobes who hate pretty much everybody. Includes six ships:

* Dreadnought
* Heavy Cruiser
* Command Cruiser
* War Cruiser
* Destroyer
* Patrol Corvette

Enjoy!

(Take a look at today's picture on our page on Facebook to see what the Seltorians think!)

Edited: Currently this is incorrectly tagged as being for Starmada, but it is for Federation Commander. We are working to get the tagging fixed, but it will probably be Monday when the folks who work at e23 come in before it does.

This package is a must for Tholian fans!

Three of these ships are "bonus" ships only found in specific Boosters. The Patrol Corvette is the web variant only found in Briefing #1 and Booster #92. Only the Dreadnought appeared in Tholian Attack.

So, if you are a Tholian fan, this pack will let you complete a very good portion of your fleet in combination with Tholian Attack.

ADB, Inc. has a new free item on e23. Running a Game Publishing Company has a lot of insights and lessons learned over the years. Anyone wanting to understand the business should read this.

This free book compiles over 30 years of experience in the "adventure game industry" along with insights, lessons learned, things to avoid, how things work, sample dealer terms, explanations of printer terms, and much more.

It includes everything from how to set up your warehouse to what kinds of business you could create, how wholesalers work, who to ask for help, stupid mistakes (and scams) to avoid, and (perhaps somewhere) the secrets of succeeding in business. Written in good humor, it starts out with a warning that nobody owes you a game company, that this is business in the real world (with real laws, real governments, real debts, and real money) and that if you have never run a business then you do not know how to run a business. You may not learn everything you need from this book, but you will learn a list of what you do not know and how it can ruin you.

Chapters include:

* Why do you want to start a company?
* The Company.
* The Industry.
* Game Production.
* Warehouse.
* Marketing.
* Sales.
* Designing Games.
* Glossary.
* Sample Distributor Terms.
* Sample Retailer Terms.
* Scams.

How far into the future does the system allow us updates? For example, if I buy the updated RRB (when does that come out on e23, btw?), and say it gets updated again in September 2011, can I download the new one then at no extra cost? Then what about say in Feb 2012? Just wondering, is all....

That is a "play it by ear" question. At some point, we'll have to do a new edition and that will have to be bought again. Until that point, downloads of the updated product will be free.

It depends on how much update there is, and how much work it takes.

RRB6 is a 14 pages longer, all of that due to inclusion of new rules from Hydran Attack and War & Peace. It also includes four dozen updates (from trivial to significant) which add up to one page of new text.

I'd expect the next time we do that much to be a new edition, but a page of errata/updates not to be.

From "This Week at ADB, Inc., 16-22 January 2011":

E23 is adding about 10% to our sales and 20% to our profit.

Good! Let's hope it keeps going that way Smile

Wooohoo! A new e23 release -- well, new to e23, at least. GURPS Prime Directive, for GURPS 4e is now on e23. Check it out here:
http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=ADB8401

Roleplaying on the final frontier. A self-contained book that works with all GURPS 4e books but can also be used as a stand-alone product (so trek fans who never played GURPS will be able to enter the game universe without any other book). Contains sufficient data that GURPS KLINGONS (4e) and GURPS ROMULANS (4e) can be used with either GURPS Prime Directive (4e) or with GURPS Basic Set.

Includes

* Racial templates
* Character generation, skills
* Attributes
* Weapons
* Technology
* Starships, etc.

Many sections are revised, expanded, and updated since the GPD3e version.

Enjoy! Don't forget to rate it.

The FC Reference Rulebook on e23 (and in print) has been updated to Revision 6. Remember that if you've already purchased the e23 version, the re-download is free! -- Jean
