1:00 Intro moment
6:00 Branching out in various things not Battletech or Shadowrun, Hands up to see who plays what?
7:00 Tabletop stuff and how CGL is pushing to make table top gaming a focus.
Branching out to become more than just CGL 'The Shadowrun & Battletech guys' and more of "The Game Company".
10:20 Shadowrun, the motto being "No matter what you play, you're playing Shadowrun somehow". Run through of the various new products that they have like deck building games, map cards, and such
16:40 The Next Big Thing(s) for Shadowrun
18:30 Battletech, what's it about? "Stompy robots. Done" -Randall...well I guess we're done here!
18:40 Randall so happy that IO is done and CO is out the door. He then goes on about the products at GenCon.
21:40 Talking about the remakes of the old 'Mechs
23:00 Rare moment of praise heaped on Loren as Randall talks about getting Legends novels available. 3 Authors not yet signed, but they're working on that! 134 out of 142 books available for publishing.
25:00 Dice available...wait gone (except Q Workshops), trying to find out how to feed the beast that is the fan's hunger for them. CGL isn't the only one dealing with such problem. 2nd Succession War is in the pipeline. Field Manual Davion, end of this year or early next. Cover is fricking awesome. Yes based on the description of "...beating Death Commandos" it DOES sound like Hanse in that sweet looking Battlemaster.
27:21 Plastic Minis WHEN?! CGL looking into it, pricing situations, things in process, don't want to be screwed over like in the past.
28:34 New Fiction books available at the Con, so they talk about them.
34:00 New fiction in the works
35:50 Future novellas?
37:00 Deck building, Vikings, the plastic minis that are out in other games, these are signals to the level of quality they are shooting for in other minis. Pico in the works, like The Duke, token placement game. Galaxy Quest the board game.
39:30 On the verge of talking about some neat future game, but the ink isn't dry on that contract so nothing yet.
40:40 Battlecorps, website redesign, Randall passing that answer to Loren because "I take the emails, you take this question".
"We need to scrap it, salt the earth, forget it ever existed" -Loren, further talk about what they hope they'll do soon for this.
43:00 when will it be done? Shadowrun time...okay bad joke from this video (Loren keeps using Shadowrun instead of the name of something else due to brain fart), really they are hoping by end of this year.
44:10 Leviathan boxes, when? Poor Randall... It comes back to the miniatures and how the foreign printers screwed them. Thus going back to the earlier timestamps as to why they're being careful about plastic minis and where they get them from.
46:01 Germans and Italians are possibly ready, Randall wants to relaunch it, but once again mini troubles. Next two to three years they hope.
47:20 Look at the deck builder game for what they are doing to plastics. They feel confident and competent, there's going to be a SR roleplaying minis pack in a Shadowrun+1 amount of time. Valiant minis are the proof of concept as to what they're doing for minis.
48:20 IlClan WHEN!? Next year seems like.
49:00 Couldn't hear him, something about a SR game called Hostile Takeover? Apparently some big hubbub was interested in helping them, so this was put aside for a moment in order to get a good deal going with that person.
50:30 SR would make a hell of a board game, so if we're doing deck building with SR how will this affect Battletech?
Well CGI hopes to take Shadowrun AND Battletech outside of just roleplaying and table top, giving the fans more ways to play within the universes. Looking at card game(s), Succession Wars boxed set, other games that aren't minis based but allow us to enjoy Battletech. "These are big giant worlds, there's a lot of room to play in them. No reason to keep them so narrowly defined."
53:20 Battletech Epub releases, where are we at? XTRO has pretty much run their course.
54:20 stuff falls by the wayside temporarily due to GenCon sprint time, which is around three months before GenCon starts.
Though the stock of Epubs is coming out, some neat ideas were talked about around this time stamp
57:40 Randall scares programmers with rulebooks when people think they can step up and make Designer programs.
58:20 Same goes for Hero Labs for AToW
1:00:08 Can someone hack into Pokemon Go and put 'Mechs in? JOKING!
