Getting the rulebook in December would be pretty cool... But from the quickstart rules they posted, as of less than a month ago they still had a lot of proofreading and editing work to do in order to have a solid, proper English translation of the rules (I really hope that pdf was quickly put together for gencon rather than a sample of the finished product). And I assume the fluff section needs just as much work.
I can imagine. I know that a good goal would be end of December for the starters and rulebook when talking with them at Gen Con. You know how that goes though. It's a good goal, but sometimes things happen.
I'm still anticipating something soon, as they Cipher group is probably working hard to get Helldorado into our hands. I'd bet it's their number one priority besides casting models for Anima and Darkson, etc.
