Next up, are the photos for the Collector's Slipcase Set for the game. (While they call it a Collector's Slipcase, I have to wonder how collectible it will be, depending on the number published, when all is said and done, but that's another matter.) So, here's some photos...
The first picture shows you the Collector's Slipcase standing in portrait format, and you can see the two books inside it at the top of the box, since they are inside in landscape format. The second and third pictures show the front and back covers of the Slipcase, respectively. This is actually the same piece of wrap-around artwork that is featured on the Narrator Screen. The fourth and fifth pictures show the covers for the Core Rulebook and the Phantoms of Mars campaign book, respectively. (My apologies for the poor photography on these two pieces. You can see a better picture of the cover of the Core Rulebook in this post, along with some photos of the interior of the book.)
The Slipcase is very sturdy, made of solid cardboard, and holds the two books inside rather snugly and securely. The content of the Core Rulebook and the artwork contained therein is superb. Since I only received the shipment on Friday, I haven't read the Phantoms of Mars campaign book yet, but having browsed through it I have to say that it looks really good as well. I will say that I'm glad I got the extra copy of the Core Rulebook that spross picked up for my birthday, and so the newer version of the rulesbook is safely put away just in case I need it later. :)
Anyway, another unboxing blog entry when I get around to it. :)
