I've searched the forums and found some hints as to what's queued up, print-wise. Does this look right?

Street Magic = real soon after Gen Con
GM Screen = painful(ly overdue) subject
Arsenal = gear
Emergence = campaign?
Corp Enclaves = location, location, location (okay, two)
Augmented = 'ware
Unwired = warez!

Thanks!

from a previous thread, info from Synner:

QUOTE
For the record FanPro's current schedule already includes (in order):

Street Magic (magic)
Arsenal (gear & tech) ----(meaning gunbunny and rigger stuff i.e. cars and guns)
Emergence (campaign) ----(probably shedding some more light on technomancers)
Augmentation (enhancements)
Corp Enclaves (locations)
Unwired (Matrix and rigging)

Further down the line the plans call for (in no particular order):

Feral Cities (locations)
Running Wild (critters)
Awakened Haunts (locations)
new "Corp Download" (corps)


my comments in italics and yeah i have no idea about the GM screen.

I'm sure I've seen a GM screen...they're rare though. One of the local gaming stores told me that they'd sold one.

Thanks, DD! I failed to find that.

GM screen? For sale? Really?? I know it exists in PDF, but I don't think it's ever seen a print run.

Makes me wish I could lump-sum Fanpro up front and just get them fed-exed to me as soon as they come out.

I hope they go back to the 1st/2nd edition tradtion of catalog style gear supplements. I always thought it added to the immersion a little bit, seeing the merc's player thumbing through fields of fire while the decker did his thing.

Not a SR4 one; there have been persistent printer problems with the production of the SR4 GM Screen. New news on that within a week or ten days, hopefully.

I swear, I saw one that said 4th edition with my own two eyes. I was too broke to buy it at the time, but I know I saw it. Plus, the guy at the store said he saw it listed in his store's inventory, and they had sold it. Nobody believes me, but I swear it was there.

It's in Berkeley, so that's actually quite possible.

We haven't gotten to the point where we'd know that for sure, but I'd say Chicago is very likely.

But it will have a nice piece of cover art done by the same artists who did the Street Magic cover.

I especially like that artist's work. I hope they use that cover!

*ahem*

It hurts the mind to think about it, but I imagine Los Angeles and San Diego are also pretty good bets for some mention.

Well, I assume they paid for it and people have seen it. If they don't, then it's just that much more work and money to get another one.

Plus, as our reactions have shown, people will more than likely want to see it as it is a badass image.

Hey Adam, what about that serial we've been promised for quite some time now on HoloStreets, called "Shadows of Latin America"? ;)

Ask HoloStreets, not me. ;-)

There were some really positive discussions about getting HoloStreets up and running at GenCon, but it's not my project to talk about.

Can someone fill a newbie in on what "HoloStreets" is?

And do any of those books have a general release date yet? (even a vague as late this year, early next year, sometime in 2008?)

I really want to switch to 4th, but I am holding off until more sourcebooks come out. Now I just want to know how long I'll have to wait.

There's a bunch of work already done for Running Wild, but since the shift from SR3 to SR4 some of it will need to be reworked (plus a bit removed and some new stuff added), so I'll be very surprised if it didn't come out in some form eventually. Right now, though, the priority is to get the core rulebooks out (with an occasional location book interspersed).

Holostreets will be a web portal (similar to Battletech's "BattleCorps"). Some things it might have (though I have no idea, since like Adam I'm not involved in the actual content) include fiction, scenarios, stuff to buy, and Shadows of Latin America. :)

As for general release dates, the next things to be coming out are the Gamemaster's Screen (as soon as it gets out of Printer Hell), Emergence (I'd guess within the next couple of months), Arsenal (later this year) and Augmentation (later than Arsenal, but still slated for later this year).

I'm glad I'm not the only one to notice something rather unbelievable in that.
