Some replies to current questions:
1) The web preview is for a book called the "Forgotten Realms Campaign
Guide". I think we need to update our abbreviation - FRCG for the
hardcover WotC book which details the setting, leaving LFRCS (if
that's appropriate) for "Living Forgotten Realms Campaign Standards".
Of course it could be called something different, we'll find out
shortly. The FRCG comes out on the first day of GenCon Indy, I
believe, the first day that the campaign is playable by the public.
2) Chris Tulach (the new SRM, for those who haven't been following the
ebb and flow of WotC employees recently, so the WotC staff member most
closely connected with the administration of LFR) has stated that
adventures will have a three-year lifespan. There was some indication
(sorry, I can't recall the source) that this might be a rolling
three-years, rather than an 'all adventures released in 200x retire at
the end of 200x+3.
3) A list of all so-far-released blurbs and estimated/rough release
windows can be found on www.lfr-oxford.oxif.com along with a
compilation of various other bits of released information on the campaign.
4) There haven't been any pronouncements on how tracking etc works,
but one regional PoC (perhaps Ryan Kappler? My memory fails me) has
suggested that it's going to be closer to log sheets and certs than to
ARs, with the clarification by Keith Hoffman that the system will not
allow/require arguing at the end of a slot over who gets what item.
5) We're expecting that every normal LFR module will be available to
download from the RPGA ordering system for play anywhere in the world
without restrictions beyond normal RPGA rules. Core specials will
probably be available to one convention per region, and no other type
of module has been announced, so it's unclear whether there will be
regional specials and/or interactives.
I think that's a reasonable summary of the state of affairs to date!
Others can add the things I've forgotten.
