Black Powder Red Earth – Limited Number Of Signed BPRE Sets

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015


Echelon is offering a limited number of signed BPRE sets for $84 shipped in the US (overseas shipping is an option, but it’ll also be rough on the books). Josh Taylor, the series illustrator, signed 10 complete sets of the BPRE books (volumes 1-7). Each order ships with a free sticker set and another random goodie from the “sold out” bin, which is the the out of print BPRE patch stash that Echelon still maintains. With book 8 due in a few weeks, this collection makes for a timely gift.

If you’re interested, send an email to info@echelon-software.com to purchase and they’ll send you a PP invoice and ship USPS priority.
