I'm afraid the same in March 2019.
we're rethinking how to communicate what's up with the Fading Suns book development. I'll let you all you know when we've got a better system for all this.
TOWN CRIERS GUILD, INTERSTELLAR EDITION:
Sources within Ulisses, headquartered on Holy Terra, reveal that production on the new edition of Fading Suns proceeds apace. The rulebook is complete and is entering design and layout. Many companion books and products are also done. “We realize things have been quiet of late,” said Bill Bridges, Fading Suns’ product manager, “but we had to wait for the Imperial Fleet to arrive in-system and chase away the void kraken that prevented ships from entering the jumpgate. Now communications should resume at a steady pace. Our troupe of gannok continues to type away madly, creating new Fading Suns books for our adoring fans.” Pressed for comment, Mr. Bridges downplayed the rumor that Temple Avesti has labeled the new edition as “ripe for Inquisitorial attention”, claiming that the current patriarch has approved it.
I'll give you the same update I gave on facebook recently: art is coming in. I am working up descriptions for the artists for even more art, and catching up reading author's drafts for sourcebooks beyond the core book. You'll begin to hear a lot more as all the pieces get put into place.
Patience will finally be rewarded in early 2020: The Fading Suns core book layout is nearing completion, with new art coming in every week — color art! This will be the first full-color edition for our far-future passion play, giving the Known Worlds (and beyond) the vibrant look it’s long deserved. Already, companion books and products have been written and edited and will begin production soon. The launch of the new edition will be massive.
Following an old tradition, Ulisses would like to wish you all a joyful Lux Splendor. To quote from a homily delivered by Patriarch Palamon on Holy Terra in 5019: “Just as the Prophet’s transfiguration on this day bathed the stellar jumproads with holy radiance, driving out the Dark and opening a thousand worlds to safe habitation, so do your gifts to one another enact that same selfless act. Brethren of the far-flung worlds, the glow of many moons teaches us that to give you must first receive.”
