Some of you may be interested in today's Tuesday update.

And for any of you about to say something about teasing you, think of it more as "proof of life." Besides, we all know you wouldn't want us to just sit on all information until the book was suddenly upon you.

This probably shows my age, but years ago on Late Nite with David Letterman, when he had heart surgery and had to drink decaffeinated products, he had this little jingle play when had to drink (with a grimace) decaf coffee - "Decaffeinated Coffee - It's Useless Warm Brown Water!"

Getting back on track with HoE - hey, lookit the cover art! Jo in the foreground, wormlings in the background, wrecked cityscape...nice. Put more armor on her, she'll catch cold.

That ain't Jo. No way in Hell on Earth. Too young, too cheesecake, and that sword is just too eastern.

That said, any Templar running around that lightly armored either just escaped some kind of prison or is about to have an extremely painful (and cold ;) ) day.

That's likely Katy Blaze's (the Martyr) daughter. There is no leg brace so not Jo.

The beginning of teasers for HOE reloaded, my day was just made.:-D
Love the cover very badass. Know its a bit longer before we see more but looks like it will be worth the wait.

So looking forward to this.

Yep, if that is a "canon" character, my money is on Katy as well. Fits the vibe for her character as well as described in The Last Crusaders.

Also, the tease at the end of the announcement leads me to believe the timeline will be set post Unity for sure.

Are you referring to the "When things fall from the sky" line? That would have been a great line for the Lost Colony: Reloaded, but save for the original judgement day, the only thing that I can think of is that little tie-in with Comsat and the Cyborgs.

Yeah, I was referring to that last line.

One could say that the Unity itself could justify that line, but I think it's referring to a certain event in the adventure itself.

Oops, didn't realize spoiler tag didn't work here.

You know the one I'm talking about, however.

As the dude who wrote that line, I can admit that it's not meant to be a tease, but a reference to the bombs that sort of queued up the setting in the first place.

Then again, I'm probably better off to let y'all come up with other, much more clever, reasons it's there, so pretend I never said anything.

I am glad to know they have put something up. I promised my players over a year ago that we would do a Hell On Earth campaign when They said it was in layout. I hate disappointing people like that but I cant do anything without official rules, only to have their characters negated when the rules come out because I didn't have "x" rule. That isn't fair to them

MMMM, Occum's Razor strikes again.

And with that, I'm no longer sure the setting will be set post Unity.

The setting is post-Unity, unless there were major final production changes, which I don't think happened.

I was starting to wonder if I was the only person who had noticed! Assumed there would be a thread within seconds.
