Very strong maybe. The only way I'd not buy it if it was just way too much money. Say 50% more than comparable books.

I'd buy several. And give them to friends.

Avlis HAS to go hardcover at some point. It's better than a lot of campaigns that have.

My question is, what Era would this be encouraging campaigns to be held in?

I'd buy one.

Woudl this more or less be a more fleshed out/compilation of the world info stuff?

I haven't played PnP since I started Avlis, okay, a few times but not as much as before. I'd buy this book, judging by my wallet and lack of a job, for 30-35 dollars. (If I had a job and wasnt in college i'd spend more)

I might not ever read it, but I'd buy it to support the team. And of course for the gloat value. Really it's mostly for the prestige it would bring.

Definitly.

And if and when Avlis does ever get switched off finally I would have a go at the PnP version of it.

Blasphemer!! The Avlis is eternal, much in the way any movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio feels.

I would also buy one if it were in the $30 and under range.

I have no PnP experience, nor any plans to take it up really, but I would still likely buy it to use as a convenient summation of world information, made portable to read on planes, toilets, the bathtub and other places my internet connection doesn't (or shouldn't) go.
