new edition?

Postby ArcaneRaven » Wed Mar 30, 2016 4:32 pm

Dear developers,

I'm very interested in both the game and fluff of IS and I'm very tempted to buy the pdf bundle. However, I've read in this board that there's a new edition currently under developement. Could you please provide some informations on that? Specifically, I'm interested in the following aspects:

(1) Will there be new background information / fluff in the new edition?

(2) Will there be a new ruleset for the new edition?

(3) Will there be new paper counters in the new edition?

(4) Can you roughly estimate when the new edition will be available? (I am not asking for a specific date, because I know this is not feasible. But maybe something like "It will take at least another three / six / nine months.")

Thank you very much in advance!

Best wishes

-- ArcaneRaven

Hello, and thanks for the interest!

1) There will be some new "fluff", although there will of course be some overlap with the first edition -- this is a reboot, not a continuation.

2) Yes. The ruleset will be new. Details hopefully to follow soon.

3) There will be new counters.

4) Hopefully we're looking at a matter of months. My target has been for a late spring/summer release.

Dear Mr. Kast, thank you very much for your quick and informative response! I hope, you don't mind me by asking some more questions. I think, that will be informative for a lot of other people interested in IS.

Will there be updates for Merchant War and Southern Front as well?

Of course, I'm very interested in the new ruleset. Looking forward to any information on that. May you give us some insight what lead you to reboot IS?

Does this mean current ships with new styled counters or additional and entirely new ships? Or even both?

These are thrilling news! I'm really looking forward to this. :)

There ya go.

Wrote a chunk of the fluff for Merchant Wars and Southern Front. Always hoped the timeline would progress further.

But if it took 10+ years for a reboot to return to the RJW, I'm thinking the rest will be a ways off.

Best wishes :)
