I'd like to see the next Journal. It helps keep the ASL level in my blood at a near normal setting (useful between core modules being received
and HASL modules being received. Action Packs fulfill the same function).

I am not sure the reason that Journal 13 has not seen the light of day is a lack of submissions, etc. It might as well be the lack of resources - proofing/edition/layout/whatever.
I thought it was problems with the map, board 77, and the scenarios that use it that have caused the delay. The board and scenarios had to be revised and play tested again to MMP's exacting standards.

Perhaps Perry Cocke or Chas Argent could post an answer on this thread. An official response will be better received
than many unofficial guesses.

I doubt that's the case - board 77 has already been printed. Where did you pick up that information, btw?

How long did the second map bundle sit idle before publication after reaching it's pre-order goal? Over a year, waiting for revisions to board 77 to be completed? Once the revisions were finalized, the map pack was printed. That was released earlier this year or late last year, I do not recall. Just supposition on my part based on circumstances.

IIRC, board 77 was done before the second map bundle was done/put-on-preorder. I don't think there were any revisions to the map.

My proofing file of board 77 is from 2016.

The supplemental map bundle took 3+ years to reach its pre-order #. I know, because nearly 4 years to the day I submitted my
pre-order for it, I received my supplemental map bundle this past spring.

I am almost 100 % you are incorrect. Bishop, if that's who you are talking about, has not been on this forum for quite a bit.
So you follow his web browsing habits?
Most posts have about 1k views....since only about 30 people post....they have a bad memory when reading.

No, I talk to him outside of this forum.

At this moment, he is no longer on this forum and has not been for quite some time. I am sure that 'The Management' could tell you the day he left if they chose to.

Dude, please stop acting like a d**k.

FWIW, even though Jim is banned, he can still browse the forums.
