Anyone know if the PDFs of the rule books are available online anywhere?

(I want to be ready to play immediately after receiving my pre-ordered copy)

Side question, who else is pumped for this???

Already got a play group lined up. So excited.

Yeah, I was telling my wife recently that whatever the reviewers say about this one doesn't really matter. My kids are really excited. The challenge is going to be getting them together to play because my daughter is in college. I foresee a lot of Betrayal Legacy games over the Christmas break.

The "getting a group lined up" part is actually going to be my biggest obstacle. Otherwise, I am looking forward to this game more than almost any other I can think of in the past!

I was so excited that I called my FLGS this morning to see if it was in. It won't be in until tomorrow It might be worth the hour (one way) drive to get it tomorrow.

Same here. Even if it has the "balance" of the prior games, we don't care. It seems like a blast of campy fun. We even liked (not loved) Seafall for a while.

Based on information that is out there so far it seems like they have taken some steps to improve it a bit...although it seems like the 'unbalance' is generally still present.

Although - and I have seen this discussed elsewhere - there is something about the balance issues that actually add to the B-movie horror theme that BaHotH embraces.

But I agree wholeheartedly...this doesn't deter me in the least.

But how are you getting home then if you drive one way?

I suspect not. I'm reading through and there's clearly nothing that one shouldn't know before starting the campaign.

Maybe it's supposed to be part of one of the other booklets?

Is the website accurate? "3 Haunt books (Traitor’s Tome and Secrets of Survival)"

I count 2 listed books, not 3.

I think the Bleak Journal counts as a third Haunt book. Don't know why they don't list it. Just a typo/oversight I guess?

Ha. No. That’s a flap on the inside back cover that folds over. It is certainly not page 2. I’ll tell them.

However, if you don't want to spoil any of the contents of the rulebook, it is a cleverly-placed reminder of general gameplay spoilers.

Rob, I've been a big fan of your "___ Legacy" idea and have played each one of yours. Enjoyed them all, although Seafall... well, something has to be last on the list, right? Thanks for shaking up the industry with the concept!
