admission: am not the least be interested in the novella.
our pov is colored by the fact that we care not at all 'bout the novella or tim cain's recipes or enforcement o' chrisA promise to play through arcanum. nevertheless am gonna make an observation... take it for what it is worth.
we got no idea what chrisA submitted for editing, but there is little motivation for obsidian to delay the release o' such a thing. no doubt some posters will posit ridiculous theories, but such conspiracy theories is more appropriate for other boards... or perhaps rt. that being said, obsidian, for obvious reasons, has not risen to numerous chrisA baiting attempts via interviews n' such since his departure from the developer in question. taking the high road can be tough and usually it involves keeping your gob shut. regardless, until obsidian has been given an option to say something encouraging or positive, we expect continued silence. eventually, if a satisfactory product is not forthcoming, obsidian will need address their failure to meet a kickstarter promise, but for now, silence don't surprise us.
HA! Good Fun!
