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.
The Deal – the Later Years
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.
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.
The Seventh Doctor Book is due to be delivered in September, 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.
