Just as a general update, I am currently working on several projects (yes, all at once; I tend to jump back and forth). As with Eidolon, the second editions will contain a ton of new material (including many new adventures in some) and artwork.

Currently working on:
Jaiman (2nd edition) -- nearing completion. This was last published in 1989!
Emer IV (New)
Haalkitaine (2nd edition)

And then, back to these, already in progress:
NE Jaiman/Wuliris & Lyak  (New)
Emer I (2nd edition)
Emer II (2nd edition)

Then on to a new continent!

Anyone know how to log in to the ICE blog to leave comments? My Forum login/PW don't work and there doesn't seem to be a place in the blog section to actually set up a login/PW.   ???

Artefacts & Lost Tech!  :D

Oh yes... that! I have all the old material in updated WORD files, but it's been on kind of the back burner. A lot of Taranian tech will come out in NE Jaiman, and I've covered a lot of Jinteni tech in Emer III (and in IV). Not sure where to go with Artefacts.  :-\

I don't actually think you can post comments.

I think a lot of it (guessing) is probably material that isn't in Emer III, IV or NE Jaiman (I don't recall seeing Jinteni tech, nor Taranian much, before). I would assume that a lot is what is in the out of print SWMA1 and Emer boxed sets. So there is no way of new people easily getting it.

See screencap. Look at the bottom. Clinking that link takes you to a Wordpress page asking for your login or email and a PW.

Ah, it could be registration to post comments is closed. I certainly don't recall ever seeing any. The blog's admin would probably have to add people who want to comment.

Well, then they should remove the comment option; it's kind of annoying to suggest that you can log in but not offer a way to do it. I wanted to offer some support comments about the hard work done by the GenCon volunteers.

I contacted Nicholas; maybe I should email Colin directly.

Yes, having it look as if you can comment - I have wanted to in the past - yet not be able to can be annoying. I imagine - from personal experience with WP blogs - that this is probably an anti-spam measure, but it would be better if the option was removed.

I think Colin is the one who manages the blog.

Sorry I'm so late to the party on this. I am indeed the one that manages the blog.

Comments were turned off because I was spending 5 minutes a day deleting spam and the number of genuine comments was incredibly small/non-existent.

I hadn't noticed that it still said that you could comment if you signed in. I'll look into how to get rid of that.

Thanks for flagging it and sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for the info Colin. I had just wanted to thank all the people involved with GenCon this year for all their hard work. I hope to make it there next year!
