No idea. My best guess is that the site hosting it (I think it's Photobucket) canceled my account due to not using it for anything else.

I voted for Evernight II because my players keep bugging me about doing something else Evernight...and I really don't want to develope the story any further until I see the official next step.

Evernight is actually what resulted in this group forming completely, it was the first campaign we completed since just after high school.

I would have voted for The Ravaged Earth Society, but I've given up hope of seeing it anytime soon; I figure I'd just forget about it and be pleasantly surprised when (if??) it finally hits.

So, I voted for Slipstream instead...looks cool.

I don't mean this as a slam but maybe the delay is due to quality reasons. Its quite possible they got a laundry list of necessary changes from PEG before they can get approval. After all, there was mention made of the manuscript getting sent to PEG.

Oh, I agree with that, however if I remember correctly it has been stated for many months (probably since mid-2007 actually) that TRES was in layout and all changes requested by PEG had been made.

We don't control licensee quality. We check to ensure it meets a PG-13 content (our basic standard) and ensure there's no unauthorized material. Unless those basic rules are flaunted, our involvement is quick and easy (as should any changes be, since the licensee knows the rules in advance).

And we never thought it was a slam. No one here is offended :) For obvious reasons, our involvement with licensees tends to stay off the boards.

Hello!

I wanted to jump in and thank everyone for their interest in Iron Dynasty and their kind words about Reality Blurs. Sure, I'd like to get things out a lot quicker, but getting things is right is most paramount in the long run.

We hope you agree!

Regards,

Sean

I voted for TRES. EN2 was a close second, but since we can only vote for one, I went with TRES.

Slipstream is something I've been wanting to get since I bought Savage Worlds some three years back. It's the only setting that I think gives me something that I can't seem to get from any other setting, that Flash Gordon-like fantasy-science pulp mentality with a solid background. I've got this urge to take on the personality of an evil overlord bent on taking over the galaxy!!!! MUAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

(Weird, how did I miss this poll? :?: )

I went for 'other'; first on the list for me would've been Sticks 'n Stones, 'cause I'm dying to try 'irregular' settings (= no Fantasy, SF, ...)
Otherwise; Red Rising first, Scairy Tales close second; the rest didn't exactly pique my interest; probably 'cause I don't know enough about those.
HoE/LC would've been on of the top choices too, but because I can only 'choose one', I'd rather Savage HoE myself with the stuff I already have and get another setting too.

Hmm :|

In the same boat as Flynn and other newcomers. After checking out what the games actually are, I regrettably have to vote "None of these pique my interest". Sorry!

Well if you need Sci-Fi... I have to admit I can't seem to resist dreaming about Low Life 40K... Space Horcs! Smeldar! Croach space marines going to battle for the glory of the Porcelain Throne!

Empire of Silk & Steel should not be forgotten as it is closer than its ever been. It is actually going through major playtesting and development as we speak. The wushu will be released soon!

Leagues of Adventure is also a project I hope will see the light of day eventually - but this is one for a 2009 release poll.
