To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, we are releasing a series of Doctor Sourcebooks for the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space roleplaying game.
Each book will take an in-depth look at an incarnation of the Doctor, featuring his companions, enemies, allies, gadgets and more. We will present each of his 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 will be full of images from that Doctor’s incarnation, and will be a wonderful fan resource for the show’s history. We’re even keeping the first two in black and white to stay true to the feel of the show!
We’re offering a time-limited subscription deal to give fans of the game a way to get themselves a great deal on these books, have them sent as soon as they are available, and to support us in the creation of this series. The first six books are at various degrees of readiness, which is a big up-front investment for us, so your support would be very much appreciated!
There are two deals available:
Deal 1 – the full set
All 11 titles: The First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Tenth Doctor Sourcebooks, plus the Eleventh Doctor Sourcebook One.
Both physical copies and PDFs
All Doctor Who short PDF-only products released in 2013 (at least three)
The MSRP for these books will be $385/£264 plus shipping – the subscription deal is $315/£216 plus shipping, a saving of $70/£48 – two free books!
Deal 2 – the early years
Six titles: The First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Doctor Sourcebooks
Both physical copies and PDFs
The MSRP for these books will be $210/£144 plus shipping – the subscription deal is $175/£120 plus shipping, a saving of $35/£24 – one free book!
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 First Doctor Book is due to be delivered in April, with the PDF being available in February. The Second Doctor Book is almost complete; the majority of the writing is finished on the Third and Fourth Doctor books and the Fifth and Sixth are underway. We aim to release a book every other month as a minimum, and hope to bring them out quicker than that. 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 and the PDFs as soon as they are available.
Cancellation and refunds
If, for whatever reason, you need to cancel your subscription, we will refund your subscription fee in proportion to the number of books you have already received – for example, if you need to cancel after the 3rd book of deal one, you will receive a refund of 8/11 of the total paid.
