Cubicle 7 Update: Newsletter, Production Updates

Hey you kids, get off my Avatar!

Cubicle 7 is going semi-old school with an e-mail Newsletter. If you would like to sign up, visit http://www.cubicle7.co.uk/get-the-cubicle-7-newsletter/. I received my first newsletter on 12/19.

Dominic McDowall, C7's CEO, is taking over Customer Service duties. He also released the following production updates:

Quote:
Doctor Who
The long delays on our Doctor Who line are coming to an end. We were initially planning to release four supplements with the Tenth Doctor edition of the rules, but it turned out that we couldn’t, so the delay until the Eleventh Doctor edition has also meant that supplements were held up too.

But, we’re in the final stages of approval on the Eleventh Doctor Set, with the first supplement, The Time Traveller’s Companion about to head into the approval queue and the second, Defending the Earth not too far behind. Assuming no major issues, the Core Set will be out in April, but I will confirm this once it is on press.

There are another three supplements written, a couple more being written and lots more planned.

Primeval
The Primeval core book is in the late stages of layout (second draft). Time to stores will depend on printing location – if I can get an affordable US printer it’s a 4 week turnaround, if I can’t and I have to get it done in China it is a 12-14 week turnaround. It’s mainly been layout issues that have caused the delay with Primeval, but we are getting there.

Laundry
The Laundry Files: Agent’s Handbook has just gone to print and should make it into stores for January. The Mythos Dossiers is heading into layout and License to Summon is being edited. Other unannounced books are at the planning and writing stage.

Victoriana
Victoriana has a huge range of books in the works, the only one which is significantly delayed is War of the Worlds, for copyright reasons. I should know what we’re doing with that shortly though, and will keep people up to date.

Qin, Yggdrasill and other translated games
Qin supplements are moving again following major translation delays. We had some issues with early translations which meant that we effectively had to start again. The Art of War is ready for its final check before layout. Yggdrasill is going through its final pre-layout checks, while Kuro should be edited by the end of the month. I think we have a much better understanding of the translation process and potential pitfalls now, and should have a base level of 2-3 translated books per year.

Starblazer
The second edition player’s guide is in layout, and the story teller’s guide is in editorial. The delay here has also been in layout – something that has had a knock-on effect for a number of our products this year.

HeroQuest
HeroQuest is just about to go to press (it’s with the printer, in pre-press). The Sartar books are following shortly.

Genesis Descent
Genesis Descent is the Cyberpunk game that Angus was looking after, so it only seemed proper for him to take it with him to his new company, Chronicle City. I will be writing to all Genesis Descent pre-order customers in the next few days to arrange their choice of a refund or store credit.

Other pre-orders
I’ll be sending an e-mail to all existing pre-order customers in the next few weeks to introduce myself as their contact at Cubicle 7 and give them an update on their orders. Following that I’ll send regular updates.

Of course, now that we don’t offer books for pre-order until they go to print it isn’t so much of an issue. But when we started the company we took pre-orders when products were announced, and that has led to a number of long waits, some of which are still outstanding. I’m working to resolve these orders as soon as possible, and hope that improved communication in the meantime will reassure customers that the products will eventually get to them. It’s not a great situation to be in, but we have learned our lesson here and all products now available for pre-order are, at least, at the printer. And all pre-order customers have a standing offer of a refund.
