Just an FYI, my copy with the prints and the playmat arrived today and on first glance flipping through these pages, it looks like they did this game some good. So much information. I half expected a purely art book, in fact I'd say that text makes up most of the book and it is encyclopedic in nature.

I can't say if there is anything new (beyond what we've seen from this game through Netrunner and the fiction) yet but it is a beauty.

Just in case you were on the fence about it...I'm quite addicted to this 'verse so it was a must buy for me.

I jotted it down in my Risk campaign book. I always used to do that so I could replay my moments of glory over a glass of brandy in the sleeping quarters. --Arnold J. Rimmer--

Re: The Worlds of Android
What is this "Prints and playmats' of which you speak? I've been working my way through the novels, which are okay. Light pulp fiction reading, but enjoyable.

Edit:

is THIS what you're talking about? the Worlds of Android book?

https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2015/11/11/larger...

edit2: Yes, Hence the TITLE OF THE POST.... I'm a little slow, but I get there in there end.... Wish I would have seen the pre-order. That looks sweet! Gonna have to check it out when it's available.

Re: The Worlds of Android
The prints and playmats were part of a limited preorder. Had to order by Dec 1, 2015.

And yes. Thanks for posting the link. I was going to do that.

Re: The Worlds of Android
I'm really really digging the world of Android. I wish I would have spotted this pre-order earlier.

Whats the playmat for? Netrunner?

The player mat is just another piece of art, can be used for anything but would work for Netrunner cause of the artwork. It's not as bright as I thought it would be but still pretty.

Re: The Worlds of Android
I've spent another 45 or so minutes with this book and as a rabid fan of FFG's brand of cyberpunk I can confidently say that this is a veritable cornucopia of Android knowledge. It's got personal angles, scientific diagrams and explanations, media angles, and amazing, amazing artwork. It's pleasantly surprisingly mostly text though and anyone wanting to immerse themselves further into the Android universe NEEDS this book.

Okay, so I'm five by five with this one. Well done FFG. I haven't made a critical glance at it yet of course because it is something I've been looking forward to since its announcement. Surely though, if there is anything to find at fault with it, it is far out shadowed by the immensity of its content.

I thought the paperbacks were fun reads but they really did bring to light many of the elements of the Android Universe, well, this spells it out in detail from several angles. Four foldout pages diagram a Rutherford arcology and Heinlein base on the moon in moderate breakaway detail.

The book is well bound and can be held open without splitting.

I'll stop gushing now because I'm over the moon with it. Do take my words with a grain of salt. I've been a long time fanboy of the Android universe and this is like having several weeks worth of new stuff to just completely lose oneself in. Bias be damned.

Instant buy for me. Although I still wish they would just make Android RPG already...

Would Cyberpunk 2020 not scratch that itch?
