From publisher blurb:
Welcome to issue 31 of the RolemasterBlog Fanzine. At the time of writing, there are 62 days left of 2019 and I really hope that the team at ICE hit their target of resolving RMu this year.
I don’t think that it will happen. Mainly because at the beginning of the month Creature Law was not complete, although everything else was in Nicholas’s editing queue. It is possible that Creature Law was finished and added to the queue this month but for anyone even reading the thousand or so pages of RMu in a month is quite an endeavor but to do it at an editors level is a lot to ask. Even if all of that has happened and there were no editing changes required one has to wonder about art.
Would you put our an entirely new edition of your game and reuse art from old versions? I wouldn’t. That means that there is a lot of art to commission. The art commissioning is something that Nicholas takes great pleasure in, and I understand why, but we haven’t heard those magic words yet. Given the amount of art needed, typically an RPG book has one piece of art for every four pages so there is going to be something like 300 pieces of art required. 62 days is a very short period for gathering that volume of art.
I really hope I am wrong but I think a Christmas release of RMu is unlikely.
This year was always about adventures in the fanzine and the Demon War is heading into what I will imagine to be the last third of the adventure path. Depending on your starting level you characters could be 12th level by now. It would be nice if I could get the entire thing concluded in 12 parts, this being the 9th.
