50thanniversary

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, we’ve been releasing a series of Doctor Sourcebooks for the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space roleplaying game, releasing a new book every couple of months.

Each book takes an in-depth look at an incarnation of the Doctor, featuring his companions, enemies, allies, gadgets and more. Each presents each of the Doctor’s adventures, giving an overview of the action and themes, exploring how you can use them in your games. We’ll also give you suggestions for further adventures based on the events depicted. As well as being packed with information for use in your games, the books are full of images from that Doctor’s incarnation, and are a wonderful fan resource for the show’s history.

The books are US letter-size (standard RPG size, 8.5”x11”), hardcover, full colour and each is between 160 and 256 pages long. We have commissioned a montage of the eleven Doctors, which will run across the spines of the Sourcebooks when they are on the shelf. The montage is also designed to sit on the shelf next to the Limited Edition Rulebook too!

So far we’ve released the First, Second and Third Doctor Sourcebooks in print, with The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook en route as we speak. The Fifth Doctor Sourcebook is at the printers, and The Sixth Doctor Sourcebook has just been released in PDF format.

The Subscription Deal Returns

When we first announced the series, we offered a time-limited subscription deal for fans to be sent each of the books as they were released. We were blown away by both the uptake of this deal, and by those of you who missed out asking if we’ll do another subscription.

As we’re over half way through the series, we thought the time was right to launch a new subscription deal to give fans of the game who missed out first time round a way to get themselves a great deal on the second half of the series, have them sent as soon as they are available, and to support us in the creation of this series. Note that this is a time-limited offer (no pun intended!).

The Deal – the Later Years

Seventh-Doctor-cover-sml

This includes:

  • Five titles: The Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctor Sourcebooks (the first three books in the deal are 160 pages long, the last two 240 pages).
  • Both physical copies and PDFs.

The MSRP for these books will be $185/£126 plus shipping – the subscription deal is $165/£110 plus shipping, a saving of $20/£16.

Shipping

The shipping rate depends on where the books are delivered to – 10% of the total order for UK/USA, 20% for Canada/Europe and 35% for everywhere else.

Timescale

The Seventh Doctor Book is due to be delivered in October, with the PDF being available in August. The Eighth Doctor Book is almost complete, with the Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctor Books well underway too. As originally announced, we aim to carry on releasing a book every other month. Of course, unanticipated delays can crop up, and in this case we will communicate with you on progress. In any case, subscribers will receive both the books as soon as they are available, and also get exclusive access to the PDFs before they go on sale anywhere else.

Cancellation and Refunds

If, for whatever reason, you need to cancel your subscription, we will refund your subscription fee minus the full cost and shipping of the books you’ve had already.

We’re looking ahead to the release of the second edition of Doctor Who: The Card Game later in the summer with a series of previews. For today’s preview, we thought we’d show you a page from the new rules booklet, showing the game in play.

DoctorWhoCardGameExampleofPlay1200

As you can see from the page preview, each player plays different Location cards in front of him. He can then play Defender cards to protect his own Locations, or play Enemy cards to attack his opponent's Locations. Where both Defenders and Enemies are present, a conflict ensues. At the end of the game, whoever controls a Location gets Victory Points – the winner of the game is the player with the most Victory Points!

Monsters

There are a number of new Enemy cards shown on the example of play, we thought we’d show you them up close – a new illustration of the Master, as well as the Toclaphane, the Vashta Nerada and everyone’s favourite Clockwork Robots.  Card art by Scott Purdy and Jon Hodgson.

One of our aims with Doctor Who: The Card Game Second Edition was to broaden its scope, bringing in characters and locations from other incarnations of the Doctor. In today’s card preview, we thought we’d show you some of the characters who accompanied the Tenth Doctor on his adventures, and who can now feature in your games too.
DoctorWhoCardGamePreview5_1200

As you can see, we’ve not only got a card for the Tenth Doctor, but also each of his companions: Rose Tyler, Martha Jones and Donna Noble.

We also had to include the Tenth Doctor’s last companion, Wilf, who plays a rather important role as a support card, increasing the number of cards you can save from turn to turn.

16May/14Off

One of the questions we’ve been asked the most since announcing the second edition of Doctor Who: The Card Game is whether the cards from the new edition can be combined with the old edition, so we thought we’d answer that in today’s post!

Cardbacks

As you can see from the cards above, we’ve taken the opportunity with the new edition to update the card backs with new designs incorporating the current Doctor Who logo. What this means, of course, is that the card backs don’t match the card backs from the first edition.

But don’t let this stop you from shuffling the two editions together, either to make one über-deck, or by cherry picking your favourite cards from both sets. The way the game and the cards are played remains the same, so cards from both editions can be played side by side, and knowing whether a card comes from first or second edition doesn’t provide anyone with an advantage in game.

This allows you to create some great combinations in the game, to capture the feel of even more of your favourite episodes. Another of our favourite episodes is Victory of the Daleks, from series 5, which you can recreate using the London, 1941 and Daleks card from the original set, alongside the Daleks and  Ironsides cards from the new set!
