From what I can gather there is a new team doing the work up. The text basically stays the same with few updates but the artwork is updated. The primary reason is the 2nd printing is nearly gone.
I meant the cover. The regular version's cover is changing. Does anyone know if the leather version will be different?
I was just commenting on the kickstarter itself. But Bill Webb wrote in reply to a comment:
"Leather book comes with a regular copy, but no, it is silver foil stamped."
I think that means it will have a reproduction of the new art cover.
Here's a post on the Kickstarter which I wrote for BlackGate.com.
Shipping (and stretch goals) isn't up yet. My current Complete Rules is 144 pages. I can't imagine this reprinting, even with two additional adventures, is going to be too much longer. This thing shouldn't be half the size of Bard's Gate.
If you want an approximation of shipping, I'd go to frog gods website and put the current edition in your cart, and make like you're going to check out. It will provide a shipping estimate. If you get just the hardcover (no add ons) the shipping price should be pretty close to that. I am guessing in the 20-25 range for Canada.
