Book of regency
The Book of Regency was written for the Birthright setting, and so close to
produciton, the ink was wet. (I guess ink is always wet before production,
don't get technical ok? :) Then the line was closed. All products complete,
or in production were cancelled. The work on them stopped.
Birthright fans took a hard shot to the chest that day. Nearly got us too!
We have since rallied back and proven that we don't need new product to
support and enjoy this setting. We just would like it.
When the line was in production, somewhere near it's end, the product:
Players Secrets of Muden was released on the internet as a download. Many of
us have downloaded it.
The Book of Regency is all but finished. I have had people on the TSR side
of this tell me so. It's in a complete enough form to be released but was
never put to the final edit.
Birthright fans were frothing at the mouth for this one. We still are. From
what was hinted in the product, some necessary clarifications were going to
be released in it.
Give us this book.
If you won't sell it, will you at least put it up on your website and make
it available for download?
This would be great for the fans of Birthright. It would be great for the
people who developed it to finally hear the accolades we are waiting to pile
upon them for designing it. It would be great for PR.
It would also show you how many of us are out there. It would be a great way
to see how much active support the product has. Just in case you are looking
at games and trying to think about which world might get a shot at a return
after 3E is released. Maybe, just maybe, you'd see enough of a response to
deem that Birthright might need to rise up and see production again.
I know Rich Baker wants it. I know Ed Stark wants it. They are great
designers. They poured themselves into the product and did a WONDERFUL job
with it. Carrie Bebris would love it too. I understand that she is now
freelance, but you could contract her to pick up where she left off. She
loves the world like a fan, and has the talent to develop it all at the same
I respect these three people to a great degree for their design skills. I'd
buy them a drink at the bar if I met them. Just one. ;)
Please give them a shot at shining. Please give us a shot of support.
Let the Book of Regency become a download. See how many of us would have
actually PAID for it in the first place. Then think... what would happen if
Birthright had a new hardcover that updated it's rules early in 2001? What
if it had a short story based arc of products that tested the fan base even
further. The arc could complete itself by June of 2001. You would have a
clear idea of the potential for support, and you'd see a number of
Birthright fanatics come out of the woodworks to cheer you on. We can give
articles to Dragon and Dungeon. WE can support it at conventions. We can
help you sell the line.
I know it's early in the game, but I am not waiting for the first kick. I'm
training. Gimme the product line eh? It's damn good.
Thanks for your time,
Craig T. Dalrymple
p.s. I am sending a copy of this to the Birthright Mailing list. Contacting
you on this was someones idea and I want them to know that I support it.
Also, the others will see this and perhaps be inspired to send you a few
lines as well. I hope I am right, brace your inbox...
