Soon. Sorry for the delay. We want to get it printed at the same time as the reprint of the Player's Guide which is just finishing up with layout now. Once we get both proofs done and approved then its just a matter of how long it takes to get them through the printer. I'd like to say by the end of March but we'll see. The Print on Demand version is going through another round of proofing but that may be ready sooner.

I just want to personally apologize that this is taking so long. I am working behind the scenes as fast as I can to get these books out there and in the hands of fans. A lot of the process is submit files, wait for results, get the results review, and resubmit. After we get these first couple of books done though I expect the process will go much smoother as we learn the things that are holding us up and what to look for.

Need a clarification:

In the Game Masters Guide it is stated that "Duchess Oelestre has held the post as Director of the Imperial Eye since 4980 and has reformed the organization and quietly purging those disloyal to the Emperor." This appears to be in contradiction with the date that Alexis was appointed Regent (4983) which would put her as an appointment upheld by Alexis but initially given the position by Samitra Li Halan.

This "solution," upholding, would appear to contrast a section in Spies and Revolutionaries pertaining to the Imperial Eye.

FS canon sometimes contradict itself, and in those cases I usually sided with older books before newer ones, specific information before general info, and neutral voiced text before in-game text. Sometimes we end up with interesting side-effects like this. The timeline regarding Alexius' rise to power (and the Emperor Wars in general, actually) is a bit inconsistent in older books. Right now I cannot remember exactly why we went with 4983 as the year Alexius became Regent (other sources puts it in 4980, I believe), but there was a reason for that. Now, what is clear is that the office of Regent cannot have held that much power in choosing his/her 'ministers' etc., for there are some surprising people holding positions under Alexius (including Countess Carmetha Decados who was in charge of the Known World's most powerful armed forces), while other 'ministers', like Oelestre, seems to have remained in office despite a change in Regent. The truth is, we simply do not know how the Regency worked, except that the Regent was elected by the holders of voting scepters.

Oh, I just remembered. We I chose 4983 as the year Alexius came to power because he was supposedly Regent of the Known Worlds up until he crowned himself Emperor. However, the Regency is a 10-year post, which would disqualify him from holding the position between 4990-4993. Also, I think the new date brings an interesting context for Alexius' self-appointment to Phoenix Emperor - it had to happen no later than 4993, or else he would lose the Regency seat and whatever powers that comes with it (including the Imp.Eye), making it that much harder to claim the Phoenix Throne. So, we went with the 4983 date instead of the 4980 one, which changes things a bit in regards to Oelestre, although I don't think it is that much of a problem? (In light of Carmetha, who was appointed by Regent Samitra Li Halan, surviving Alexius' ascendency to Regent).

Indeed! I wonder why? Will you send DriveThru a note, Colonel Bogie?
