As far as I am concerned there is no fault....for me you are putting out great products that make our gaming table even better.
We have three major plot lines and two of which can only be helped by upcoming books. Our games include an Immortal Elf having the party move throughout the world/meta planes artifacts and ancient magical lore. They have no clue as to what he is doing with it all, and multiple organizations have tried to get the same articles before the PC's do. The other game is run by another GM who created something that gives Bugs nightmares....and we are working on containing there threat. Final game is lower powered shadowrunning, used when we have only one three or four players of the group.

•  Advances the overall Sixth World plot as the world’s
powers continue to vie with each other for dominance.
•  Introduces a new form of campaign book that provides
the concrete information gamemasters need to run
a game while also providing fl exibility to design the
campaign in a way that suits them.

I'm really interested in how this plays out - the chance to make a great book or to really fuck it up are 50:50, I'd say.

As someone who is heavily into the Earthdawn side of things, will I recognize any of these items (the cover of DotA looks suspiciously like an Astral Sextant).
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

Question about the Runner's Toolkit. Is it supposed to arrive on the street release date, or it will ship on that day? Because I have a game on the 23rd, and I really want the Toolkit for that game. But if I'm goign to get the toolkit afterwards by preordering it, I might prefer to buy it in-store, even if it does mean I don't get the PDF.

Think street date is delayed to due to issues with the delivering truck.  Pre-orders supposed to still be on time.  IIRC

Urgh, then I'd better pre-order ASAP. I can't tell which is faster, UPS Ground or Priority mail. :(

Not sure if "on time" means they get sent out in order to arrive on the 20th or if they get sent out on the 20th, which was sort of my question. Well, I've ordered with Priority mail, here's really, really, really homing I get it before Saturday evening.

The main Shadowrun blog has a post all about it, that just went up today.  Hopefully it clarifies things some!

Don't quote me on this but I think that was written back when there was still plans for the advanced magic book.

Ha! I'm quoting you about it! But only because you're right.

Is there any news on the 'Conspiracy Theories' book? Really looking forward to more info on the British setting.

Any chance of getting an update to the Upcoming Releases?

Maybe some ETAs on some of the books like Dawn 4?  No street dates of course but just a estimated month you guys are hoping to put stuff out. 

(I'm trying to plan my current campaign, and knowing when some of the missions and adventure books will be coming out would be hugely helpful.)

JH posted on Facebook earlier this week that he received the first laid-out proof of Dawn 4.  Have no idea the time frame to convert that into a formal product announcement, but am hoping we see something in the next couple of weeks.

Shadowrun posted to Facebook the other day that "First laid-out proof of Dawn of the Artifacts 4 downloading to my computer now!"  So it's getting closer, at least.   8)
