We're happy to make available the Eclipse Phase Second Edition Condensed Player's Guide (EP2CPG for short ... ish) is now up for print pre-order and the PDF is on sale — pre-order the print version and you'll get a complementary PDF. This book is a 112-page softcover, full-color. Like usual, the PDF version is massively cross-referenced and hyperlinked, and it's available on our store and on DriveThruRPG.
We designed Condensed Player's Guide to be something that multiple people will have at the table, and so the print version has bulk discounts that will kick in — $10 off for every three copies you pre-order!
Over the past couple 18 months we've done a few print pre-orders and they've all gone very smoothly — we anticipate that this one will be the best yet!
That said, there are variables still in play. We'll be printing Condensed Player's Guide at one of two USA-based printers that we have ongoing relationships with, but the time of year + the state of the world (there are huge supply chain issues worldwide, including paper shortages) we don't yet know when the pre-orders will ship. We intend to get the files to the printer the first week of November, but it's possible that books will not ship out until after the holiday season.
The quantity of pre-orders will guide us in our print run size: the more pre-orders, the more copies we'll be printing and the more widely they'll be available in stores next year. With the supply chain issues and paper shortages likely to continue until at least mid-2022, we need to put ink to paper now, economically — please help support us. You'll get some great books and there will be some for your future gaming friends can get them too!
The renovations of our little shipping office are nearly complete and that means a bunch of merchandise is back available for sale! Surya Pins, Octomorph Pins, t-shirts, and hoodies to keep you warm this winter! The t-shirts and hoodies are pre-washed (and bagged) for extra coziness and less puppy fur. Treat your bio-bod!
