Why would you need a re-release? Distributors are still listing the first release as being available in limited quantity.

Really? Please post a link to one or two of these distributors, as I'd like to get my hands on one! (I'm not finding anything out there.)

The catalog at http://www.alliance-games.com/ says LTD for status - though you'll likely have to find a retailer that uses Alliance as a distributor to get one of those limited copies... and that will likely involve your choice of retailer having to make sure to specifically demand the distributor send a copy even if they have to get it from a warehouse other than the normal for the geographic area, which can be tricky since distributor reps have an apparent tradition of pretending they can't do that.

Unfortunately, it seems the copy/copies I was seeing available through other smaller distributors are now gone from their inventory lists - but I also have not checked diamond book distributors because they have release catalogs, not inventory catalogs, so you have to get in touch with them to find out if something is actually in stock.

Recently did a very quick, cursory search for the 1st LE: Paizo showed it in stock, and a couple other online retailers did, too...

Start searching! :mrgreen:

Really nice cover. I couldn't justify the extra $20 just to get a new cover & none of my players wanted to either.

I have to admit that greed got to me to. I could use dat extra 20-30 bucks on some other things... like modules and books. But there is little doubt in my mind what is the ultimate gaming cover!!!

Maybe when Im ready to pick up a second copy Ill get the next limited edition cover... which can only be more awesome than this one.

The back cover is the same as the standard cover; Hugh and his striped pants.

The spine is new and can be seen here: http://www.goodman-games.com/forums/vie ... 859#p90859

So what was the pre-order treat (since a pre-order module wasn't included)--?

This was me, until my local game store guy accidently double-ordered copies and offered to see me one really cheap to help clear his shelf. Now I own all three covers. :lol:

How many versions will be released each year, do you imagine? Budgets must be made and funds must be allocated, y'know... :mrgreen:
