Post-Gen Con greetings! While we've previously talked about potential upcoming projects, this post is meant to cover a new subject (for us): reprints! We're close to exhausting the initial print run of The Shipwreck Arcana, which means we're figuring out the logistics of a 2nd Edition print run campaign.
