In a couple of years they have published the rulebook, a mini capaign with unoriginal adventures and a bunch of PDF set in Ubersreik.
I'm really enjoyning the game, don't get me wrong, buy I honestly worried on how they could come accross the enemy within capaign and other projects.
Half of these material Will be published not soon and not by Cubicle 7 (I Hope to get wrong on this).

I’d like to see something that hasn’t been done in previous editions. Elf sourcebook, maybe?

Archives of The Empire Vol I

In a private room at the Great Hospice, a deft hand has gathered information from across the Empire. Archives of The Empire Vol I features articles on Halflings and Dwarfs, an exploration of The Laurelorn, rules for mass combat, and more.

The 'rules for mass combat' is intriguing given that Games Workshop is revisiting 'The Old World' in some form or other.

I agree, Archives of the Empire is probably one of the most intriguing entries on that list. But I won't be buying anything else form C7 until it gets to print; the endless waiting is a bit frustrating.

Slightly related: I am still reluctant to buy Ubersreik adventures vol. 1. I own all PDFs and don't want to throw away my money like a madman.
Did C7 offer any discount for the printed book in cases, where someone's already bought all PDFs?

Not that i know of, and i was watching to see if they did that. They did do an offer on DTRPG for the complete Ubersreik adventures vol. 1 for those that have some of the original PDFs.

I'm still surprised that they haven't updated and published any of the 2nd or 3rd edition scenarios - it all seems to be old 1st edition stuff. Is there a reason for that?

Lord of Ubersreik in Rough Nights and Hard Days was adapted from 3rd edition (it was originally part of the Edge of Night adventure). But they mainly seem to be trying to cash in on 1st edition nostalgia. Which is probably fair. Are there any adventures/campaigns from 2nd or 3rd that are as fondly spoken of as the original TEW or Rough Night and the Three Feathers?

Any idea of when the print version of the first Enemy Within volume is going to be out?

I was in contact with the c7 customer support this week. I got a fast reply to my inquiry. That included the info that shipping for TEW1 should be very soon. That's not very exact, but maybe promising, if you want.

The claim was that shipping for all their new stuff would begin on Monday 11th May but they don't have full warehouse staffing at present. I received an email asking to confirm my address that I entered almost a year back for TEW. I'm prepared to cut them a little slack for the current situation.

honestly, i'd assumed C7's marketing was largely divorced from the situation in their warehouses before all this viral trash. at this point i'm assuming the actual delivery date is "an utter mystery to us all until it ships" and you're ordring as a sign of good faith.

I don't dispute your point here; as I keep saying, Cubicle 7's project management leaves a lot to be desired. TEW volume one, and several other of those listed products, should have been ready for shipping in February not April/May. However, that it did slip, it then added the extra time from their inability to fully staff their warehouse and deal with shipment issues.

I agree, too, that any preorder is a risk and a sign of faith, which is why I made sure to buy it with a credit card and get some level of purchase payment protection (how it would work in practice I don't know, but I'm guess it's better than a debit card or cash)

Thanks for the updates. C7's project management has been piss-poor for years, so I guess the unreliability doesn't surprise me. Still disappointing, though, given the quality of the stuff they do get out the door.

Well, I kind of prefer the quality of the product over the project management. The other way around would be much worse.

Not necessarily: Qin was so badly managed that product which had been promised for - literally - years never appeared before they abandoned the licence.

I received volume 1 of TEW Collectors Edition today (finally!!) and it's pretty spanking but I'm dissappointed in no faux leather binding even though it wasn't advertised as such, I was hopeful. It does prove that they do, eventually, produce physical goods. Here's hoping to Empire in Chaos by 2025.

My order of TEW 1 and its companion, Ubersreik adventures and the GM screen arrived yesterday. So one small mystery solved for me at least. The content is as expected from the PDFs, haha.

I only just realized that there are no foldable maps included. It's not that I need them personally these days, but especially the map of the castle in DotR was quite iconic for me. I had it pinned to my wall when I was young ™.

I got the Collectors Editon which has the handouts and maps additionally included as separate printouts. Unfortunatley, the maps are only A4. The 'Adventurers Wanted' handout has different daily pay, 5/- compared to the 5GC in the book, which is frankly a little more realistic. I am hoping the DotR Collectors Edition does have the big hex map.

I toyed with pre-ordering the other stuff but it would be on a separate order and the shipping costs were nuts. I knew I'd likely be able to get in touch to have it shipped on one order but thought I'd just grab them from somewhere in the UK...
