D minus 10 days

The word has gone out to distributors: Monday, July 24th, is the order deadline for these four reprints/new releases:

Stock No.
AG0205 1-58978-070-1 Ars Magica 5th Edition (core rulebook) - Reprint
AG0279 1-58978-076-0 The Mysteries Revised Edition (Ars Magica sourcebook) 29.95
AG0282 1-58978-087-6 Realms of Power: The Infernal (Ars Magica sourcebook)
AG1300 1-58978-089-2 Seismic (board game) 29.95

Seismic is due to arrive at the port of Tacoma tomorrow. However, it has been selected for X-Raying -- this is like a special lottery where the winners get to have their freight delayed, and then get to pay extra for the privilege. Our freight company expects that the container should be on the rails early next week, delivered to the Twin Cities by train. We've learned to allow for a lot of uncertainty with international freight, so I can't be 100% sure that Seismic will ship at the same time as the Ars Magica titles. But the odds seem good, so I figured I may as well have customers give us those numbers at the same time.

In other news, Houses of Hermes: Mystery Cults is now sold out. You may be able to still get it from Warehouse 23 or your favorite retailer (and their distributor may still have stock), but our warehouse has been cleaned out. We don't have any reprint plans at the present time, but we have made it available in PDF at RPGNow.com.


  1. Today, while browsing MetaFilter, I stumbled on this ship tracker.

    So, in the future, you might be able to find out where your stuff is, if it is on a ship that's in their database.

  2. Curious that there is no cover image for Realms of Power: the Infernal, even though it is due from the printers soon....

  3. Refresh your browser. If your browser is caching an old (very old) copy of the images on the page, it will have the placeholder instead of the cover art. I don't remember when it went up, but it's been there a pretty long while...

  4. I would like to get a copy of the reprinted AM5 core rulebook. Where can I order it? And how do I know that it is the reprinted version?

    As yet it's not available anywhere. We will be shipping it out this week to distributors who order it (they treat it is a simple restock of the book -- they won't distinguish it as a new product or anything), but I'm sure there are lots of 1st printings still in circulation, and even as the new copies make their way out to store shelves I'm sure the first printings will be around for a while.

    > And how do I know that it is the reprinted version?

    If you look at the bottom of the Credits page, the new printing has both ISBN-10 and ISBN-13 numbers. The first printing only has the old ISBN-10 (which is just called the "ISBN").
