Yes, it is a bit early. But chances are, Warlord: Crimson Coast is going to be available as a pre-release at the RPC Role-Play Convention 2009, running April 3rd-5th in Cologne. The design team has been busy trying to give us a bit of a cushion, so we don’t have to rush things to the printers as we had to in the past.
So I decided to open up the pre-orders. From now till April 3rd you have the chance to pre-order and get a copy of Sir Robert of Andover and a copy of Takaxras for each set (one set = one of each #10-#12) you pay till April 3rd.
Sir Robert will already be tournament legal March 30th, a date for Takaxras has not been set.
“Huh?” you may ask. Yes, Robert is legal before the set appears at your door step. Consider it an extra incentive: For all orders paid till March 15th we’ll send out the promo cards in advance. It’s that easy.
And yes, there will be other ways to get Sir Robert later on (no, he’s not going to be part of an OP kit), but this is the only way to get him right away.
