What are the chances well have the pdf available for download monday? When are you expecting it? Sure, they are stupid questions. But we are all asking them, so we might as well discuss it. ;)

My bet in the range above is Wednesday.

If it weren't for the range cap I'd say after next Sunday, based on other comparisons between quoted and actual release dates.

Realistically, I'd be extremely surprised if Adam had time or energy (most importantly energy) to finish it during the course of this week. GenCon is a little bit exhausting.

I'm guessing wenesday or earlier, I'm not sure, but I'd think the PDF would be a pretty big thing.

However, I do realise that Adam has allready wresteled with the thing for awhile, so I'm just rooting for his sanity.

I'm guessing Wednesday as well.

I'd love to have it Tuesday, but I'll bet Adam is too wiped out to accomplish much tomorrow.

Take it his edge hasn't refreshed? I mean those successes could really divide the time down.

Silly. Adam isn't human. And that lower Edge is killer. ;)

I'll put my money there too. I don't think Battlecorp can put stuff on Saturday or Sunday, or i might take Sunday. The PDF will be done by the weekend though.

I'll go with Thursday also, just because it's my payday, and if it is released earlier, I still won't be able to get it until Thursday.

Hey Mintcar, you didn't make a guess. Just holding the bets on this one?

Am I allowed to play this game?

I suspect Friday. I'm officially taking Monday-Wednesday as actual vacation vacation, since I spent so much time pre-GenCon working on my vacation. Once I'm home -- and have access to a computer much beefier than my laptop -- the PDF is top priority.

Yes, but I'm sure you'll understand if we don't offer you the same odds as everyone else.

Had fun at the con?

Can we place money on the chances of it not happening at all next week?

No offense, Adam.

QUOTE (Kagetenshi)

Yeah; good stuff. Was very gratifying having hundreds of people asking for the book every day, and very unfortunate that the bindery wasn't able to output the number of books we needed.

Beyond that, though, everything was great; our new banners looked amazing, the new t-shirts rock, Holostreets was finally announced, WizKids had a lot more info about the upcoming Shadowrun novels. The buzz about SR4 was great -- both from regular fans and industry people. We ran a ton of demos, the "Mr. Johnson" game/contest that we ran was a blast, and our party on Friday night was well-attended. White Wolf pussied out on the dodgeball game, though. I guess they're still reeling from the Capture the Flag smackdown we laid on them at Origins.

Game of Thrones from GoO came out as well -- the deluxe for sale and some sample copies of the OGL version, and it's a totally sweet book. Even though it stole a week of my life that I would really like back, the quality and content is amazing.

I walked out with a stack of books -- more than I expected -- including Warhammer Fantasy from Black Industries/Green Ronin, True 20 from Green Ronin, Northern Crown from Atlas Games, Eberron from WotC, and Pulp Hero from Hero Games. Plus the new supplement for Burning Wheel, and Dogs in the Vineyard.

Made new friends, caught up with old ones, lined up work for the rest of the year, danced my ass off -- and saw the Gothsicles, who rocked the goddamn house. Good times.

I suspect somewhere next week - just because I really dont want to get disappointed again. (I can imagine creating the pdf as being a bit stressful, not even speaking about the con, but then again - why posting a release date?)
And why not taking the vacation afterwards with a good feeling about a job well done? (Thats what I'd prefer, but then again Im a caffeine jukie just working properly under stress, so what ;) )

Well last week would have been nice as I had the week of...

Playing a bet Id say next week, maybe early next week.

Adam is still "only" human, no pun intended.

We should sponsor him a sleep regulator though...

You'd be amazed how many native speakers make that mistake. I truly dispair sometimes.

I guess every nation (or better every language) has native speakers / writers of that kind :D
And their numbers usually seem to increase with each and every day ... which in turn leads to even more despair among those who value good orthography ...
