Hmmm. Sure, E30 is fairly reasonable by Irish standards man. Count yourself lucky

Still haven't had much luck. Waiting for a local supplier and some Ebay sellers to get back to me, but they taking so long and I wanna start ordering soon! Why can't people sell for reasonable prices eh?

(Hey, some brave (but foolish) soul voted 'Hell no!' :o )

I recently noticed I'm only missing one book, City o' Sin. Am I missing out on a lot?

Somehow getting hold of the right books goes smoothly here (in Belgium). I'd think it would actually be harder, but then I notice all these posts about the LFGS not having/getting/being able to order/ ... certain books.
Is there some kind of explanation for that?

(Also, would City o' Sin still be available in book-form somewhere? I'd like to have a complete collection! I'll check on E-Bay!)

Not hugely, some minor metaplot, some location expo & a few new types of mutant strain (Furries, pretty much).

Nothing you couldn't live without tbh.

If its so easy to get hold of books in Belgium, perhaps you can put me in touch with some Belgium suppliers? I got a few potential possibilities for the core material + some location books on Ebay, as well as some archetype sourcebooks in the future, but still not brilliant and its time-wasting to wait for auctions to finish.

I'll check it out with some of friends. I don't usually do the ordering - my style is to walk in the shop and look/hope for a suitable book. This always worked with me.

Anyway, I'll check. 8)

However, if you live outside the US, you will be swamped with a rediculous delivery charge. They wanna charge me 30+ dollars to ship 2 paperback sourcebooks (for e.g. Brainburners and Last Crusade). Come on!!

Just to roll it back a second...

Shattered Coast - Librarians. "I'm Batman..."
Denver - Robo-Hunters (Steel Knights)
City o' Sin - X-Man like super mutant edges & hindrances.
Iron Oasis - Sky Pirates & Scrappers (Living Cyborgs as opposed to the dead type)
Cyborgs - New Harrowed powers & general harrowed rules.
Waste Warriors - Also includes the Kung-Fu magic which Sykers are good with too...

You can also still use Fire & Brimstone, Hucksters & Hexes/Hexarcana, Ghost Dancers, & Book o' the Dead with the HoE setting. The world isn't much for nature spirits these days, so you don't see many of those guys. Same scenario for the preachers, and Hucksters have a hard time winnin' their battles with the manitous, but they are all still available to play in the future.
Boot o' Doom!
