This is completely unacceptable! I'm unsubcribing in shock and disgust!
I'm kidding of course, but I kinda liked the ligatures..

On another note (and I realize you're probably fed up with this question), do you have some predictions to share about the diverse Mythras publications and release schedules?

Not fed up at all. Here's a run-down on things we're up to for Mythras.

Mythras Core Rules
Lay out complete bar some page XX reference to be finished. The book is 304 pages, and I'm talking with our printer about some different hardcover finish options. Once we've done all that - and we're looking at a couple of weeks - we'll be able to release the PDF and preorders for the dead tree copy.

Super Secret Project
I'm waiting for proofing samples on a game aid for Mythras, and if all is well, that too will be released in matter of a few weeks.

Mythic Rome
In layout. All the art is in, cover is finished, and we're putting the components together. Couple of months work, making this an Autumn release.

Mythic Britain: Logres
In editing. Art to be assigned shortly. Likely to be Christmas or early 2017.

Mythic Constantinople
Being written, great progress, sometime in 2017.

Mythic Mesopotamia
Writing is underway. No delivery date as yet.

Mythic Greece
Pete's working away on this. 2017 release.

Luther Arkwright: Parallel Lines
We have completed scenarios from 6 of the 8 contributors. The two other contributors are lazy, skiving excuse-makers and proving to be barriers to a wonderful project. I'm so incensed, I'll name names: Whitaker and Nash. There. They should be ashamed of themselves. Seriously, we're looking at end of the year or early 2017 for Parallel Lines. Once the skivers get their acts together.

Taskan Empire Campaign
A republishing of Jon Drake's original campaign that came out for Legend. We need to commission some additional for this, but I'm hoping for a 2016 release. Most likely POD and PDF rather than full print run.

Scenario Compilations
Pete is working on several scenarios designed for Mythras Imperative. These will be free downloads and will be appearing in the next few weeks. We also have a few other scenarios that will most likely be released as a Book of Quests style publication. This may be a 2016 release, depending on the speed of other things.

There are a few other things bubbling away that are too early to discuss, but we do have a lot going on, as you can see.

That all gets me excited. Very cool.

I might have to start writing stuff myself here!

I'm really looking forward to the Mythras-branded woad body paint. It'll add so much to the Mythic Britain game!

Wait, was that a secret?

Is this being written by MOB? I thought he has his hands full with Glorantha.

No, MOB couldn't complete the project, but we did have an alternative solicitation from Mark Shirley, who pitched several different takes. Mark has done a lot of work for Ars Magica, so knows his European and Byzantine history and brought a very compelling perspective to the project. We're really looking forward to see his material.

Do the existing RQ6 products get a re-badging as Mythras once the license lapses?

I'm happy to hear that. I've read a few of the Ars Magica books he's worked on and have been impressed. It Mythic Constantinople still being set in 1453?

Its based around that period, yes. But not necessarily that particular year.

I haven't read anything by him, but "guy that has worked on Ars Magica" is a qualification that leads me to believe he will be a good fit for working on Mythras.

This is a detail still to be worked out. In PDF form, certainly - and this has already happened. Print's a bit trickier, and we need to discuss with the license holder.
