We're looking at early January right now. We had to sort a lot of things out for the Aventuria Card Game Pledge Manager store, and now this second should go much more quickly. But we want to close that one up before we open the Almanac.

Is that also the plan for the PDF?

For the people who are getting "All the PDFs" from the Core Rules KS, you'll have it as soon as I prep the files on DriveThruRPG. Everyone else will have to wait until the Pledge Manager store closes, because I need them to complete surveys to make sure I have the right email addresses. :)

I hope to prep the files soon - I'm just waiting on the two extra PDFs that go with it. (The Almanac comes with two maps already.) There has been...a bit of a tale to tell about the maps. I'm going to post an update to the Almanac KS this week letting everyone know what's going on with that. Don't worry - I think it's an overall positive result.

Note that the download includes two maps. One of those (the "large" one) is the same as the map we gave backers during the Core Rules Kickstarter. The other is that map with some extra political and page reference information.

Aaaand done :)
Yup, quick glance and it's looking great!
I downloaded two maps. It's nice to have political map. But large map for some reason have very large file size.

This map,
File size: 70 MB
Page size: 432x560 mm

Old map:
File size: 18MB
Page size: 841x1189 mm (A0)

Some mistake or?

Not sure on that one. I was under the impression that the newer version was going to have a larger format or at least the same, but apparently not. Mostly I just post what they give me, unless it's ridiculously large. :)

I can adjust it if necessary. Let me know what you think.

Old one is good for me so no need for adjusting. I just though that you should know :)
