Weren't we supposed to get another preview of TI3 yesterday? What gives? Enquiring minds want to know!

The internal server at FFG had a meltdown.

FFG had a hardware crash and are recovering from that. They stated on their boards that this week they would post the TI3 article today (Wednesday) but I still haven't seen it.

Twilight-Tuesday-cum-Wednesday has been delayed again, due to the server meltdown Mike Z. cites above.

When the server is fixed, we'll post it. When that will be, I can only answer "soon."

Sorry!

I think the rules were just angry from being cooped up, and decided to exact payback on the cruel, cold microchips and circuitry that held it trapped.

Of course, in so doing, it blocked its own way out, so it continues to be stuck. And lonely. And sad. And Angry laugh

I can post the page on my site if FFG wants to zip up the html in a packet and send it on over.

The external web server is just fine as people can obviously access the FFG web site. The internal server is the one the melted down. Until the server is repaired and data restored from the off-site backups, there isn't any information to post.

The server wasn't suppose to be able to suffer a 100% failure nor were the repairs suppose to take so long. There are a number of very unhappy people over at FFG this week.

Keep in mind that FFG also has a lot of data to restore. Print-ready artwork is 300dpi and takes up lots of space. The pdf of the rules expansion takes up over 500Mb of space alone and that isn't even the source file!

Ah... well, I meant my post in jest. I do Web design/development for a living, I realize the complications involved.

A description of some of the new Strategy cards in the expansion is now up on the FFG website.

I'm really looking forward to trying TI3 with the expansion.
