We've recently sorted out the January sales figures for Ars Magica Fifth Edition. They're good, better than expected. In fact, they're even better than we would have expected had the introductory offer not finished at the end of December. We hope to continue to be surprised in this fashion.
Overall, Fifth Edition is selling as well as Fourth Edition did, in a much more difficult RPG market. A new edition is always a bit of a gamble, so it's a great relief to see that this edition is not only well-received by most fans, but selling well, too. I can get on with planning our 2007 releases now. (2005 releases? They're all written, and in various stages of playtest, editing, or layout.)
