White Sand Omnibus Now Available For Purchase


It has been... a few months since we were supposed to get the White Sand omnibus, but at long last, it's here! The digital edition, at least - as of today, you can purchase the ebook from Dynamite here. The full price clocks in at 40 USD; here's what that money will give you:

  • All three volumes of the original White Sand, with adjustments to lineart and colouring (rest in peace, boombox my beloved), as well as a few new scenes inserted into the original chapters
  • A brand-new prologue following Khriss
  • Ars Arcanum pages scattered throughout the entire omnibus, discussing not only sand mastery, but also astronomy, culture, and even (a little bit of) Darkside magic

You might fairly be wondering what happened to the physical editions of the book, and the answer is, they are coming soon-ish. In an Indiegogo update from December 15th, Dynamite has revealed that they've received the first shipment of the softcovers from the printer, and will begin sending them immediately. The hardcovers, meanwhile, are still awaiting their printing; as such, it is impossible to tell when they will arrive.

Finally, a quick note about our spoiler policy here on the Shard, both the forums and Discord. White Sand is not a new book, and a scattershot way in which the various editions are distributed makes it difficult to establish when to start and end a spoiler period. As such, we are not establishing any spoiler period for the omnibus - you may discuss it untagged in all spaces where the plain old White Sand can be discussed.  As for the Ars Arcanum, we are fine with people posting pages or fragments of pages when it is pertinent to the discussion at hand - however, we will not allow posting the entire AA in bulk or single pages without context.

Wait, weren't us backers of the campaign supposed to get a digital version of this too? I haven't seen anything in my email, but I may have missed it in the deluge of unimportant updates they've been spewing out.

Anyone know if you buy this you can get it on kindle? The e book version that is?

One of the formats you get out of your purchase is .epub; you can get an .epub file onto kindle in a bunch of different ways, it is a format Amazon can understand.

From what I'm hearing, Dynamite apparently decided not to give digital versions of the book to people who purchased the physical. I have heard that some folks who backed for the ebook version have had trouble claiming it from the website, but honestly, I'm as confused as you are.

LOL, I actually pre-ordered the digital version on their website (after seeing that ebooks weren't included in the physical tiers of the Indiegogo campaign), but they didn't even send any notifications that it was ready to download.

Thanks for the information!

No, the digital was sold separately from the physical. Unfortunately...

Downloaded and finished recently. I enjoyed that a lot. It's not without its faults (some if the dialogue is rather expositiony and comes across a bit false), but overall a decent story and magic system with a nice amount of action and mystery.
