Castle of the Mad Archmage Update

I know a lot of folks are wondering when Castle of the Mad Archmage is going to see print, and I wanted to give everyone a quick update based on new feedback I've received from Black Blade Publishing.

The latest news is, their print version of Castle of the Mad Archmage (slipcase, poster maps, etc.) won't see print until 2013. Probably Q1, but no later than May. May 2013 is the hard deadline, after which time they lose the right to publish.

Sorry I don't have better news to give, as I had hoped we'd see it this year, but such are the vicissitudes of the publishing game.

Q1? You lost me, here. I have an idea you don't mean QUEEN OF THE DEMONWEB PITS....

Please explain, thanks. And I really enjoy your blog...from one "grognard" to another!

Sorry Kevin. Q1 means "First Quarter", as in the first quarter of the year. Been dealing with quarterly releases at work too much!

Poster maps! I am stoked for this. What's the forecast for when this will see release? I'd love to pre-order if possible.

At this point I am referring all inquiries regarding release dates for CotMA to Black Blade Publishing directly.
