Warehouse Updates

Here are a couple of quick updates from the warehouse.

First, if you are in the US, your local store should have or soon be receiving two new RPG books of ours: The Lion and the Lily for Ars Magica, and the long-awaited Glimpse of the Abyss supplement for Feng Shui.

Next, I am in the midst of stagger-shipping our new card game, Mad Scientist University, so it should be arriving in stores around the USA around the end of next week. If you've been watching the play-by-post action on our messageboards, you may have noticed that some freshman Mad Scientists didn't even wait for their semester to start before launching their schemes to take over the world!

In other warehouse news, we've sold out of a slew of titles recently. We are now sold out of popular card games Once Upon a Time and Dungeoneer: Tomb of the Lich Lord. (Remember that every Dungeoneer set is a stand-alone game, so if you're interested in trying the game for the first time any set will do.) We will be ordering a Once Upon A Time reprint next week, but it will take at least 6-8 weeks for the job to be done, so the game will be gone from our warehouse until after the Christmas holidays. We haven't decided on the exact plan for Tomb of the Lich Lord, but I hope we will get it back in our warehouse sometime in 2008.

We have also sold out of The Mysteries Revised and Covenants for Ars Magica. Other Ars Magica books are also running low (such as Realms of Power: Infernal and Ancient Magic), so my crystal ball predicts a batch of Ars Magica reprints in the new year as well.

Remember, about these out-of-stock titles, that the games not being in our warehouse doesn't mean you can't get them -- after all, Once Upon A Time sold out sooner than expected because of big orders from our customers, who wanted to make sure to have them available to local game stores for the Christmas season! So if any of these are on your shopping list, you should still be able to get them -- but act sooner rather than later.

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you too. I'm happy to hear that Lion and the Lilly will soon be in and that the Ars Magica titles are selling through their print runs.

  2. Happy Thanskgiving to you too (even if it's not a holiday this side of the pond). I'm happy to witness this strong proof of ArM 5th ed.'s continuing popularity and success. IIRC, this will be the third print run for Mysteries Revised. Am I correct in assuming that this means that all of Covenants, Realms of Power: Infernal, and Ancient Magic will soon be available as PDFs, too, in the interim before the reprint ? This would be a quite nice option to have.

  3. This would be the 2nd printing of Mysteries Revised -- Houses of Hermes: Mystery Cults is the one we already had to reprint.

    I do intend to get these books into PDF format, when time permits. After the current wave of pent-up releases, we should have some time to work on that, though I still have a lot of other things to catch up on.

  4. I'm happy that Ars Magica is selling well, that's good news for all fans of the game. I'm also interested in new ArM books being released in PDF format in e23. I like that format more than I expected: it's cheaper and I don't need any physical room to store them.
