Buying the Martial Arts Companion as pdf?
« on: December 07, 2017, 04:12:22 PM »
Does anyone knows where I could buy the pdf version of the Martial Arts Companion? I had tried both, RPGnow and DriveThru? But both seem to not posses it. Could anyone help?

As far as I'm aware, the current ICE does not own the rights to the RMSS Martial Arts Companion, and thus it is not legally available in pdf anywhere.

I think it's listed near the bottom of the "lost books" list in the News thread.

The author shows as no longer missing ... so it could be that they were unable to come to an agreement to republish.

I can verify I did put the author back in touch with ICE, but have no idea what happened from there.

Do you know, if anyone from the staff could say if there any hope for a re-release or pdf version of MACom?

I see six copies on Ebay currently, that may be your best bet if you want it in the short term. I have no idea whether it will be rereleased in PDF.

Found a book on a flea market here in Berlin for 5€ last week! So I posses a hardcopy, but still hope there will be a release as official pdf someday. Maybe updated for RMU!?
And EBay? Sorry, don't  trust them anymore! To many bad experience for me So I currently only buy from DriverThru or RpgNow or from publishers!

I posted this in the lost books thread by mistake.

Here is the most recent update I could find by searching the authors name.
