I stopped in my FLGS earlier this week to pick up the newest edition of the Descent game and the conversion kit, but also to put in my Christmas order for 5 of the Player's Guide books for WFRP 3e. The person behind the counter said he wasn't sure if that would happen since he was under the impression that the 3e version was being phased out.
Thankfully he did take my order and said he would let me know in about a week if he'd be able to order the books for me. Here's hoping.
During the same trip, I asked about TEW and he hadn't heard about it or when it would be available. He said my best bet would be to check online for an availability date.
Just thought I'd pass along my experience from a brick-and-mortar store.
