After putting it off far too long, the forum has now been updated to the latest version. The old forum was actually too old to update easily, and relied on a mod that I only recently found for the newer version.

Please let me know if you find anything not working properly.

Oh, and one more thing, forum registration is open again :twilightsmile:

I've heard that the russian team are doing a PH print in the very near future, and they're getting some chapter art done. Maybe they could liase with them and use the same art?

I believe the expense they were referring to is the added expense it would take to include art in the actual printing, as that takes up more space and would mean more pages, therefore extra printing costs. Getting artwork elsewhere doesn't change or alleviate this.

If the art is the size of what it was in the most recent FoE printing - ie, essentially a header - then it'll add maybe an extra 10 pages or so to the pagecount. If it's artwork that takes up an entire page (unlikely), then it adds an extra 80 pages on. At other self-publishing sites (using lulu for an example here, aware that the team doesn't use that method for printing) that's an extra 80p, or roughly $1. Considering that the overall pagecount is going to be at around 3000-4000, and that the price-per-page is probably reduced due to bulk buying, in all likelyhood, per book, the extra cost should be less than a dollar. Considering price estimates by random people on this site (always a reliable source :p) are $150-300 for the book, adding less than a dollar isn't going to make much of a difference to that. I suspect that most people wouldn't mind the slight price increase in exchange for chapter art.

But hey, I'll buy it anyway, chapter art or no, so it doesn't matter too much to me.

While chapter art or even full page artwork would be welcome, if it holds up printing by even a day its just not welcome! And we need a printing much sooner than later for PH. Its been complete for what, 2 years now?

I'm in the camp of doing it right the first time. Do not skimp on something just to get it faster. I don't know about you, but I'm only buying it once. And I'm willing to wait as long as it takes to get a quality print.

Read tru the posts in this section. There's been no official announcement by the team that there will be one but there's plenty of us who want one. Frankly im pretty sure I'm not the only one that would pay 200 bucks for a 5-10 volume printing -seeing as it's almost if not more than twice the size of FOE-

I doubt I'd be willing to pay $200 USD but I'd probably pay $100-$150. As much as I love PH I'm not made of money haha
