I think we all would like an official confirmation about release date. Although there are other interesting questions too. For example I have read that Warlock and Priestess sets will be sold as two separate products. In that case will they have cards only from their Magic Schools or will they have additional flavor for Wizard and Beastmaster as well?

1) Warlock and Priestess academy edition - Guys from Arcane Duels are giving out Spoilers about cards in this two expansions. My guess is late March if they will folow same path as with Forget in Fire

2) Promo Spell tome - We dont have any oficial info about it, i am not sure if there is a name for it right now but i would expect 2Q of this year. Before summer maybe?

3) Siren Vs. Paladin - definetly this year  8)

The Priestess and Warlock are two seperate sets. We'll be sharing a ton of cards from those sets leading up to their release. Now, no I don't have an "Official" date for them, mainly because I'm design. However, I believe we're shooting for April for the Priestess, with the Warlock to follow in May or June. Now, this is the plan right now. Something could change, but I don't expect those to change too much.

The Promo Spell Tome, ideally it should be out a little ahead of the Academy expansions. But that could change. Regardless it will be out before PVS.

No, I don't have a date on PVS. I know what I'm shooting for, but as I mentioned I'm design. Production, shipping, and logistics are outside of my expertise. So, I don't have a good estimate for that right now. All of that said, I've poured myself into PVS and we've really been focused on that set. I know how important it is to our players, and it's important to me personally. I want you to all have a set that is really phenomenal.

I hope this helps with any questions you might have. If you have other questions please feel free to ask.

Thanks for the info. Looking forward to those products. ☺

Will we get any spoilers, which promos will be included in the promo spell tome? Any information on the total number of cards both for this tome and the two academy expansions?

I'm sure we'll have some previews for the tome. The tome should be about 108 cards and each of the two academy expansions is 72 cards.

I was wondering, will 1 expansion be around half the price?

More sets gived more transportation costs, but it could be in a very small box, like the one fantasy flight or pokemon uses.

If so, you wouldnt be able to add many tokens or spellbooks but I wouldnt mind that at all. I've got more spellbooks then I'll ever use already.

Yes the price is lower, but I'm not sure what it is right now. That's a little outside the design sphere. We're trying to be conservative on marker sheets with these expansions. We certainly don't want to overload Academy players with new things and tokens.

Promo spell tome? This might be a bit off topic, but what all is that going to include? Will it have promos that were released in the various expansions? Or is it going to be all currently unreleased promos?

The promo spell tome is going to have promo cards that have not yet been printed, and possibly a few new cards.

I'm sure everyone's going to want that expansion after such a long wait! It's been what, two years since it was first announced?

I wonder what new cards we'll be getting?
