Thank you for the reply, Paul. I appreciate the straightforward answers, even though I wish they could have been more "optimistic" for the line...

And what devious a coin you have that won't come up the right side for its master (who can only be Marc).

And, by the way, just having to be patient is nothing I'd equate with the line one likes being "dead". It's much better to have to wait for some time than to get a half-baked product every two months...

There's only so much one can do with the major Superiors...

A friend of mine was disappointed today that Core is out of print. I pointed her to e23, though we're still hoping to find a used copy at Strategicon

(Plug plug). But she's enjoyed the live games I've run, wants in on the PbP, and like many of the people I know is a disaffected member of the org I used to be in. Massive batch of LARPers I'm slowly corrupting, slowly but surely.

Anyone going to be at Strat'con? With an extra copy of Core they'd like to sell...?

Is pdf publishing the way of the future? Was Egon Spengler right, when he said, "Print is dead"?

Any plans for a 2nd edition In Nomine?

Isn't In Nomine the most successful non-GURPS game as SJG?

Is this to many questions for one post?
In order of appearance: No, yes, yes, I can't anwer that, I can't answer that, no.

Well, given that, I can only hope that Marc sets some high-risk business manoeuvre in motion, freezing Zad's accounts and outstripping her, making his appearance first and thus increases the sales-numbers of Superiors-.pdfs.

Well, I must confess that I don't understand the phrase "there's only so much one can do with [insert appropriate thing here]" exactly. Does it mean that the (game-)options presented by major Superiors are fewer than those given by the minor ones?
If you do mean this, why do you think so? (As it is obvious, I'm contrary to this view.)
But perhaps one could open a new thread for this discussion...

I don't know. I'd buy Zadkiel faster than Marc. Not that I wouldn't eventually buy Marc too, but in my game I've already done a lot with Marc and am probably so far off canon that the pdf wouldn't do much for me except extra attunements for his servitors. Zadkiel on the other hand is one of the major players in my campaign- and I think I'm still fairly close to canon with her so the pdf has more potential for me.

Well... we already know a fair amount about the major Superiors, even the ones that don't yet have full writeups. (It's amazing how much information about Jordi is scattered throughout the various supplements, for example.) That limits what we can and can't do with them.

The minor Superiors, OTOH, are open to much more creativity...

I saw a game just the other evening... And though the numbers for the e23 files are going up slowly, they are going up. (The numbers for the _free_ ones are in the thousands, of course. Freebies, whee!)

We prefer "In Trauma." Although that's not really right, either. More like Very Slow Moving. Like Stone.

That's more likely to get answers over at the e23 sub-forum, or the General Chatter one.

What Paul Said. That doesn't mean I don't have some notions of what I'd like to do.

Interesting question. Has SJGames done any other RPGs besides GURPS? Oh, right, d20 Munchkin. Munchkin was probably much more popular, though I don't think it's got as much expansion potential. Munchkin Card Game, on the other hand... Oiy. I wish IN were that successful!
