After visiting the timfire website, I realized that it was going to be a while longer before I finally got my hands on a copy of The Mountain Witch:

(9/23/05) UPDATE ON THE PRINT VERSION: Fortunately, I was able to get the necessary corrections made to the file (thanks Joshua)! Yay! The books have been ordered, so it will be another 2, maybe 3 weeks. Sorry again for the delay!

I’m starting to think that it’s my Dark Fate never to actually own this game for myself, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed for everything going smoothly from this point on for both Tim and The Mountain Witch. While I’m waiting I could probably contact Brendan at IPR and get the half of my order that is Burning Wheel (Revised) shipped to me now, but instead I think I’ll just keep things as simple as possible and be patient until the second printing of MW is done.
