[Runequest] Runequest Digest, Vol 45, Issue 11

Indeed it is.

Here's a post I've made in various places. Forgive me for not making it
here, too.

Posted on 27th July

Today I sent the production files to the printers.

I'm therefore hoping that pre-orders can start next week. Here are the

Moon Design will be handling all print and electronic orders via their
website. There are several reasons for doing this.

First is synergy. Part of our business model was to integrate with Moon
wherever we could. By partnering with Jeff and Rick we can offer package deals
on both RQ6 and Glorantha titles (for those that want them).

Second is expedience. Moon already has an established e-commerce gateway
and it makes sense to take advantage of that. Plus, Moon can host PDFs for
immediate download once payment has been processed which benefits Design
Mechanism because we get a far higher portion of the cover price than
relying simply on Drivethru - although Drivethru will still be used for PDF
sales and Print on Demand options.

Our Products page at www.thedesignmechanism.com will have a link to the RQ
pages at Moon, so clicking on our 'Order Now' button will take you to their
site. Moon still have a little work to do before all that goes live, but it
shouldn't take too long.

The PDF edition of the book will also be fully bookmarked and hyperlinked.
We have to finish that work, but once its done then you'll be able to order
the PDF immediately. If you order the print copy you also get the PDF free
of charge, so you'll at least have the electronic content while you wait
for your book to ship.

RQ6 is being distributed by Alliance, the largest distributor of hobby
books and games in the world. They are also handling direct fulfilment for
us, so that's where your book will ship from once it reaches their
warehouse from the printer. I'm anticipating that stock will be available
from about the 20th July, but its possible this date will shift a little. I
will keep you notified.

Pre-order cost of RQ6 is $50 (US) + $10 shipping in North America, or $15
shipping elsewhere in the world. And you get the PDF free, which on its own
is $25.

We will be maintaining the pre-order price until 22nd August. Two reasons
for this. First, it takes into account Gencon US, and second its my
birthday. Seemed like the right date. After 22nd August the price is $62,
but this still includes the PDF if you order direct.

Some people have asked me if RQ6 will be available for Continuum (20th -
23rd July). Unfortunately, we won't be able to ship stock to the UK in
time. However Pete will be there with a couple of sample copies so
Continuum attendees will be able to whet their appetites.

Other than that, its great to be able to say that RuneQuest is firmly on
its way. Stay tuned for pre-orders going live and the final release date.
