There will also be personal touches that you DON'T know

I am soooo bad with secrets! *kicks herself*

Put it this way - there will be some fun little surprises. If I can just keep quiet for 4 weeks!

Oh, I know it would take millions and tons of time to develop a game...it was just getting late and I was getting a bit giddy, that's all.

We are a household of 2 geeks here, but we live near an old naval weapons station and we think that's why only CDMA phones (not GSM like the iPhone) work well out here - probably a dead spot for GSM networks. We just need to move!

By the way, I was really pleased and surprised when I found out the price for the limited edition. I expected it to be more than $56 with the relatively small print run and the bags and now more "secret" personal touches.

lol - don't worry, I've got very giddy thinking about it too! Imagine the virtual worlds - one for each suit - eg the Castle of Fire for the Wands, and one for the Majors, where you could interact with characters based on each archetype. You could have missions based on the Fool's journey and other tarot traditions. I've made pages of ideas and notes, but I know it's probably just fantasy, given the cost of game development these days.

I have it on my mental list of 'things to try to do before I die if someone else hasn't already done it by then' though

There are personal touches but they are still Seeeecret ...

I wanted to keep all the extra goodies a surprise, but Leisa was a bit worried that people wouldn't think it was worthwhile unless they knew some of the extras

I just heard from my Mum that the bag production is going well, and that enough should definitely be to Leisa for all the presales to be sent out on 1st August - assuming the author-cards get to me for signing in Australia and make it back to the US in time, AND that the copyright registration is all legally finalised by then.

I can't risk the deck being made public before the copyright is registered - I think most of you know about the commercial piracy of Golden, so I have to make sure that doesn't happen with Touchstone. Well, we can't stop it happening, but we can make sure it's easier to sue them if it does
