Argonauts book?

The last I heard about the Argonauts book was in a post from Adam Jury from February of last year (so, about a year and a half ago) stating it was in the writing/editing process.

I've been away from everything Eclipse-Phase-related for over a year now, and having just returned to the forum, I can find no trace of the book. Did it ever get released (possibly under a different name, or incorporated in some other book)? Did it get cancelled altogether? Is it still in the works?

I just finished it. Took me a while--taking over the project from the 3 preceding writers was a bit messy. Anyhoo, we already have the art, and it's now in layout... so not long now! :)

I wondered if it might be getting close, based on that tweet about scientific gear earlier. I'll be happy to see it.

Glad to hear it! And WOW - three other writers couldn't do it? Mind if I ask what happened there? I'm not being critical, just curious about the process.

Loving it so far, and while I don't even normally like the Argonauts (I'm more of a c-rep gal) it's a lot of fun!

One minor catch: page ten has "The dominance of the proactionist ideology" in a spot where I think it's meant to be the precautionist ideology, as they're immediately compared to Firewall Conservatives.

I read the whole thing in one

I read the whole thing in one go. Here is what I've noticed.

On p. 5

Quote:
The conference leading to a declaration of person-
hood and self-ownership for AGIs happened around
AF 33.

Shouldn't that be BF 33?

On p. 6

Quote:
For these reasons, AF19 saw the addition to the
Magna Cortica of the Third Tenets

Shouldn't it be BF 19?

On p. 12

Quote:
OPENNANO AND FREENANO

Wait! Transhumaninty had developed self replicating nano-swarms? Before the Fall? I thought only the TITANs made self replicating swarms. Interesting fact but it contradicts what I knew before.

On p. 13

Quote:
Tang is a rockstar polymath, a latter day Paul
Erdős

That special 'o' character at the end comes up as a square with an x through it. Happens multiple times in that paragraph.

The Voice, page 23 seems to have the wrong page reference, I think it's meant to be Panopticon not Sunward.

Getting the corrected print

Getting the corrected print files to DriveThruRPG's print server and then going through the prepress queue and then ordering/shipping/approving proofs can take 10-14 days. So, not a lot of time to spare to get this released in print in February. :)

Awesome! This was just what I needed, especially as one of my players in my last game was playing an argonaut. She'll be very happy to have this, and I think it's just what I needed to restart that game. :)
