Eric has indicated that the rules won't be posted as it's an 80 page book; the Primer is your rules teaser for the moment.

They can put the first 10 or 20 pages of the rules on the internet, so that the possible buyers or the buyers can see a first glimp of how the game works and how the rulebook works.

Well.... besides the blog & primer..
If U know nothing of the C&C system, Can he download the M44 rules here @ the site?
Its got the basic move/combat/terrain/cards/scenaros/etc. stylings of C&C gaming.

Whoa there! I own and play all C&C games so I know what to expect. DoW usually posts their rulebooks before the release of a game so I was just asking. I like reading them before the game's release, that's all. No need to be a drama queen about it.

DOW has stated that they won't publish the rulebook on the site. All we can expect is the primer and the tidbits we have (and will have) on the blog. I wish they were here too even though I own all the C&C games. I play PBEM frequently and its nice to have a PDF of the rules on my computer for quick reference. (Especially when I am at work and sneak a game in and don't have the rule books with me!)

I, too, would like the rulebook as a PDF. While I don't play from work (that's a terminable offense), I do read rulebooks when I have down time with nothing to grade.

I'd also like an off-line scenario editor.

I wonder if the decision to not post the rulebook is based more on a hosting decision than a time/effort decision. The rulebook document is probably stored in some sort of text file (MS Word, etc.) and those are easy to convert to PDF, but 80 pages makes for a large PDF and not only would they need to find hard drive space on their server, but if they post it and it gets downloaded several hundred times, I wonder if that would cause their ISP to get irritated.
Just speculation, not that I know anything about DOW's Internet Setup or capabilities.
