Revamped edition of Beyond the Wall in the works

Beyond the Wall and Other Stories is near the top of my favorite OSR games.  However, as in a lot of cases, there hasn't been much in the way of further products in the line. Well, here's some news from the forums from the author

We have been slow lately for two reasons:

1) We have been working on a very, very large new product for Beyond the Wall. This has, obviously, necessitated more time than our earlier, free addons.
2) I am a teacher, and the beginning of the school year is very hectic for me.

The good news is that my day job has slowed down finally, and I have been ridiculously productive this week. I was going to make a facebook announcement later this week, but since you're asking, I think it is fine to break some news here.

You should expect two things to happen before the end of the year. The first is a revamped core. You will be looking at loads of new material, like a bestiary almost doubled in size with story hooks for the monsters, additional spells, a new scenario pack, and loads of new art. This is not a new edition; everything is 100% compatible with the original version. This is just extra material and typo corrections throughout. If you already own the game, your pdfs will be updated for free.

The second, and probably more exciting, is our first large supplement. I regret to say that this will require purchase, but it will be full book length. The supplement will deal with creating campaigns using Beyond the Wall's unique methods, creating magic items, new character options, etc.

After this is all out, you should expect some more freebies at a (hopefully) more frequent pace.
