Big update to the line talked about today. A bit of background that some big arguments exploded on Facebook recently from a few people about the current state of the rules and errata and how Modiphius appears to be ignoring the game.
Gavin has posted an update on things. It's long and if you like the game worth the read but I'll quote out the main bits: https://www.modiphius.net/blogs/news/the-elder-scrolls-call-to-arms-summer-update
Firstly, we are pausing development and releases for two months from the end of July.
We will use this time to update and consolidate, with the community's assistance, the errata and FAQ’s into one list. We will then apply this list to the existing rulebook to update and correct it. We are not proposing to make wholesale structural changes to the book at this time (but see below) but will ensure that the errors are fixed, contradictions resolved, ambiguities removed and page references are updated. We will include the expanded quick reference sheets that are available in the PDF so if you want it, everything will be in one place.
The updated rulebook will be made available for free in PDF and sent to all customers. For retailers it will be available via the Bits & Mortar scheme to give to their customers.
The game has had some really bad errata count (and they're still looking for playtesters to help in this) so an updated PDF will be very welcome as this was the main ask of most people. I was in the living wiki camp as I'm certain several of the loudest complainers will be back to complaining once a new errata on this updated PDF is issues (as it's impossible to have the perfect rulebook and arguments were made that it has to be for the game to be playable).
We will then print this updated rulebook and will offer copies FREE via the Modiphius web store to all customers who purchased the game, you will only have to pay postage. Modiphius will work with distributors and retailers to get the books out to stores. Stickers will be added to existing stock of Core sets advising how to get the updated rulebooks. Unfortunately we are not in a position to swap out the rulebooks in the Core sets already produced but we hope the availability of the updated PDF’s and the free rulebooks will offset this.
This is rather a big surprise that they're eating the cost of a new rulebook in print.
With regard to the card packs, we recognize that changing suppliers has not given the best results. These changes have, unfortunately, been beyond our control, and whilst there has been some variation in the card quality, we feel the card packs are still fit for purpose. However, we are looking at returning to our original printers if possible, who had suffered a fire. There are implications on timing that changing back to our original printers in China may have. It may mean we have to delay the Chapter 3 card pack until after miniatures have launched.
Some cards from the chapter 2 pack had a miss alignment on colors (just barely) and so they look fuzzy. Kind of surprised they're not going the FWW route and doing local die cut punch out cards due to the cost and trouble they've had with all the Elderscrolls cards.
* There won't be PDFs of the cards from card packs. Selling this is how they're paying the bills
* we got the names of several chapters to show that the game is in fact being worked on (names and release subject to change)
** Chapter 4: Rise of Dragons (dragon, Draguer and similar stuff)
** Chapter 5: Forgotten and Forsaken
** Chapter 6: Dragonborn
** Chapter 7: Twilight God
* Chapter 8 is looking to be non-skyrim stuff in 2024.
