Hi ! How many games are in pre order now???

I really like your games to be edited. Does your game could support minis?
building, soldiers ?

Ill check tomorrow when apparently they update the numbers every wednesday.

You could easilly use AE as a campaign setting for minatures battles. Id probably use DBA rules but if you were fully hardcore you could use DBM. Might literally take years to play using DBM!!!

Personally, I think it would be fun to play a campaign using a mixture of dice to resolve trivial one-sided battles and DBA to resolve the rest.

Steve,

What is the status now of your game? Are they still doing pre-orders or has that been completed?

Cheers,

John

Looks like it has stalled. the sunsetgames website has been stuck on 11 pre-orders for months. I guess the number of people who would like to play the game does not equal the number of people who could be bothered to go through the pre-order process with sunset games.

Has an alternative method of distribution been considered? Today is the first time I spotted this game and it looks very interesting. I would certainly like to play the game, but it seems it won't become available due to not meeting the 100 pre-order minimum.

I got an email from them last week asking for an editable copy of the rules (in word format) This is the first contact I have had from them in months. Naturally I enquired as to the progress of the game (twice) and got no replies.

so...

If nothing happens in a while Ill just make all files available for free. colour laser printers are so cheap these days.

Hi Steven,
Your game looks so tantalising but IMHO it is unlikely to ever reach the pre-order quantity. I haven't noticed their order numbers changing much in years. Maybe we, as a specialised bunch of ancient campaign addicts, are too small a target audience.

Can I make an earnest plea that you revert to making the shareware version available again. I would gladly make a donation to it.

Best of luck with whatever you choose to do,
Phil
