Very very exciting stuff. The cover of Blood of Martyrs is a very nice looking piece of new art, too, very cool!

It seems then that the plan is to do a series of "Clanbooks" a bit like the old White Wolf Vampire clanbooks, or even the old D&D Class books. What's interesting to me is the way that FFG seem to mix sourcebook info into every single publication. They don't do "pure" sourcebooks, they do player's guides/adventures that are packed full of background information. I imagine that this wil continue into these "classbooks," so we'll probably see quite a bit of Calixian-specific data on each. That's the stuff I love!

And one would imagine that as these forthcoming books cover Clerics/Scum/Arbites/Guardsmen, we'll probably see similar publications into 2012 for Psykers/Techpriests/Assassins/Sages too...All incredibly exciting.

It will be interesting to see how many pages each book totals, and what the RRP will be for these. I have a niggling feel that they'll hurt the wallet too much to warrant getting all of them.


Only the insane have strength enough to prosper.

Only those that prosper may truly judge what is sane.

The page count is comparable to the other supplements released by FFG. As for RRP, those are shown on the Knowledge is Power PDF, generally between $29-39, though I'm sure places like Amazon will be selling them for cheaper than that.

So the page count will be between 120-144 for the career and Ordo books, since these will sell for $40 (the 256-page books, like the Radical's Handbook and Ascension all trade for $50). I won't mind that page count if the books will be heavy on fluff and low on statistics and the like.

I figure the adventure books will follow the pattern of the Haarlock trilogy (60-70 pages for each).

Anyway, I'm really excited for these releases.

Probably about that. I've noticed FFG tend to stick with the same rough number of pages, and the prices generally reflect the page count.

D'ya wonder if we'll get an answer to the question "Will the DH vehicle rules be the same as the RT vehicle rules"?

'Cause right now I don't know what's worse - waiting a year and a half to find out that they're the same, or waiting a year and a half to find out that they're completely different.

I don't see how two different sets of vehicle rules could be developed for games that use the same mechanics unless the DH devs and the RT devs are forbidden from speaking with each other.

I could see them doing it very easily. That's not to say they will, or even would, but I'd rather just know in advance. It would be a real pain to have the group playing one set of vehicle rules for over a year and then suddenly get a different one.

Maybe there is an Adeptus book coming out that will cover all three down the road.

What about the Mechanicus, Psykers or Adepts? No love for our more mental individuals?

There's always 2012.

And you know already that the one we all want the most - Ad Mech - will be Q4 2012.
