Sorry folks, but I received an email from Ken stating that, although the rules are written, there are no plans to release an 8th edition. Here's what he said:
"The latest post on the Trollish Delver may be a little premature. Although I have talked with Jason Kempton at Fiery Dragon about doing an 8th edition, and although most of the rules for such an edition have been written, that does not mean it will happen. Flying Buffalo really doesn't want to see an 8th edition. My idea for an 8th edition may be transmogrified into something else entirely. Don't go jumping the gun, folks, and be making assumptions that have not been verified. I've talked about the 8th edition before, but it hasn't happened yet. And probably won't."
I did think I was justified in thinking there would be a new edition of the game due to the fact that Ken had mentioned writing it on both Trollhalla and his Twitter, but I clearly misunderstood. So apologies to Ken and you guys for that.
