Steve, thank you for the news. It would have been great if Stygian Fox had taken five minutes to do an update and send it to everyone, rather than leave it to someone in the discussion group.

The deadline for this book is well past, Stygian Fox will not answer my emails for an update, and I’ve just been told, when trying to view their home page, that the server cannot be found. I’m wondering if they’ve gone belly-up.
Stygian Fox, if you are reading this, PLEASE GIVE US AN UPDATE.

Most recent post on their Facebook page is dated September 8, 2022. Maybe try contacting them there? Note: I am not a backer, don't own any of their products, and have no personal connections with the company.

One thing I can't find is a player map for Funt House in the Malice Everlasting scenario. I can only find a GM map with a lot of spoilers on it. I can always do minor alterations or hide spoilery parts of the map, but that one just has too much text on it for me to easily fix. Am I missing something? Is a player version available somewhere?

Hi Olivier! This is a great question! Let me see about getting a player's map out to folks. I may need to have Stephanie go back to the original file and make changes to it. I'll let you know when that's done. Cheers!

Has there been any news on the second print of the book?

Also when the 2nd print happens will it be through here or through the same people you went through the 1st time?

Thank you for your time

Hi Alfio! I'm afraid we don't have any new word on the second print run yet; right now we're working on getting copies of Occam's Razor into our KS backer's hands. However, we still have plans for the second printing of New Tales.

And to answer your second question, yes, we will be going with the same printer for the 2nd print run as the first. There will be no loss in print quality. :)

Cheers, and sorry for the late reply,

Forgive my ignorance, but how come an Electrum title like this one is not available for POD? It is a material of Chaosium licensing - agreement or something else?

Chitin P May 04, 2021 5:48 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Something else - DTRPG's POD cost for this book is $30.82. Follow that up with DTRPG's 30-35% cut, royalties to Chaosium. and any creatives that also receive royalties for this title (all based off of the $49.95 MSRP that we'd list it at) and Stygian Fox is left with $6.69 in profit.

A traditional print-run, by contrast, is about $10 (printed and delivered to us), with a higher quality product for our customers in the end. Then Chaosium and creative royalties (but not 30-35% for DTRPG). The higher profit margin lets us fund future titles more easily, and have the ability to work on more than one title/task at a time with them.

Funnily enough, the USPS returned a soft bound edition to me about 3 weeks back...from the original mailing back in January! And it's not damaged at all. Email me (chitin@lastmilegamelogistics.com) or send the Last Mile Game Logistics, LLC Facebook Page an IM, and we'll get you squared away with that copy.

Yes - MAiAC has been updated to 7e, new, full-color art is being worked on, and an additional scenario is being written. Should be 2022.

Best way, currently, is to probably follow Stygian Fox or Last Mile Game Logisitics, LLC on Facebook and to "Follow Your Favorites" on DTRPG, so that you can receive emails from us (and whoever else you've marked as a favorite on DTRPG).

Missed the Kickstarter on this so I got the PDF. Book is gorgeous and I'd love to get a physical copy. I saw links come up but was broke at the time. Got some extra cheddar now but it looks like the links have been deleted. So, does that mean I should curse myself for being unlucky or will this book have a second printing?

Hi Jay. We went with the traditional print-run for fulfilling the Kickstarter, and, as all of the backer copies have shipped, we've begun selling the remaining copies here: https://www.paypal.com/instantcommerce/checkout/7AMGRBVTXCHJU

As it mentions, the shipping rate is US only. For anyone outside of the US, please contact us at chitin@lastmilegamelogistics.com and we'd be happy to provide a quote for shipping (either from the US, where the bulk of the books are, or the UK, which only has a few copies left).

As you can tell, a lot of us are waiting on the PoD version. I'm also wondering if, like Chaosium, there will be a discount if we purchase the PDF first. Looking forward to running some of these classics.

The PoD version won't be available with a discount if the PDF is purchased first. Even with Chaosium, that discount is only available on their own site, so it's not PoD for them, but a traditional print run (i.e., much less expensive than one-off PoD printing). The PDF is also less expensive for publishers when released on their own site. It's those two things which allow them to offer such a wonderful deal.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
