Hooray for another Soldak game.

The title had me puzzled for a bit until I read where it came from. Sounds nasty. :)

Here are a couple of minor punctuation nitpicks on the Overview.
Paragraph 3, line 4. "dark elves pride and lust" should be "dark elves' pride and lust".
Paragraph 4, line 3. "unstoppable-infecting" should be "unstoppable---infecting".

Any estimate for beta testing yet?

A Linux version is planned.

Any estimate for beta testing yet?

Not really, maybe around March?

Paragraph 4, line 3. "unstoppable-infecting" should be "unstoppable---infecting".

Why 3 dashes btw?

Why 3 dashes btw?

It's called an em-dash. It's used to separate clauses. — is the html command, but three dashes work too.

A single dash is a hyphen, used to link words. When I see "unstoppable-infecting" I expect it to be followed by a noun, like unstoppable-infecting monster.

Thanks for the explanation Roswitha. I've fixed both issues.

Thanks for the newsletter! When Soldak speaks, I always know it's gonna be something worth hearing, and this time is no different. And I have really grown to love genre mashups over the past few years; I can't wait to see what Soldak has up its sleeve (but I guess I'll have to)!

By the way, when — can't be utilized--such as in many forum software packages--I just go with two dashes. I've been doing that for probably over a decade and have never been called out for it, so I guess it looks okay. :)
