Here in New Orleans we have been under a Stay at Home order since March 17 and the city is shut down. In Louisiana, we have total cases of Covid-19 that put us with New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and California as far as the highest numbers in the country.

A mere 4 weeks ago, we were tentatively looking for a May-June 2020 release date in time for the big summer conventions. Needless to say, the Covid-19 pandemic has upended everyone's schedules, as well as changed our daily lives. At this time, we are hesitant to promise anything other than a 2020 release date. Rest assured, by pre-ordering you have guaranteed this purchase price and being the recipients of some of the first TSATF40's to be mailed. We can also assure you of some special "perks" we have planned.

We want to especially thank you for your support and trust in The Sword and The Flame for these many years, and during the Covid-19 pandemic. Dad was continually amazed and pleased with the success of these rules that he created simply because he couldn't find any existing Colonial rules that he wanted to play. We think it's quite a fitting legacy.

Everyone please stay safe,

Sergeants 3

We all appreciate the update--and not least the "complications" that seem to be turning the project into "TSATF 41!"

Better late than never; better RIGHT than RUSHED!

Christy, Lori--Stay Healthy!

Thank you for the update. Stay healthy. Everything else is secondary.

I have never even thought twice about my preorder because you guys have always been nothing but professional and honest. When it comes it comes. Until then, I have another few versions of TSaTF that I'll continue to use.

Be safe and healthy.

That's fine. It comes when it comes.

Take care!

Lori & Christy as others have said, take care of yourselves the release can wait and so can we.

I will second Patrick at TVAG:

"Better late than never; better RIGHT than RUSHED!"

Lori and Christy, your health is a heck of a lot more important than a deadline. Be safe. TSATF40 will appear when it appears and we will all be happy as clams at high tide.

When it is published it will be right

The rules can wait. Just hunker down & stay safe for now.

What they all said before me! The update is very much appreciated. When TSATF/40 comes I will be of good cheer & celebrate. Till then I won't sweat my pre-order. What really matters is that you guys stay safe and healthy!
