I missed this post from Gianni Vacca back in September: Due to all the changes going on with Chaosium and their Basic Roleplaying/D100-based systems, Alephtar Games has lost licensing rights for Chaosium games, so Celestial Empire is no longer going to be published.
As I said before, Celestial Empire is easily the best game I’ve seen based on Chinese history. Gianni really knows his stuff, and it comes through in the book. So if you see Celestial Empire in a shop, pick it up — it may be your last chance to.
That’s a real shame!
