It took longer than expected, but the Defenders of Midgard PDF has been sent out to all Fellforged-level backers, and it is now also available to the public.
If you are a backer at the Fellforged tier or above, you should have gotten your link to the PDF from DriveThru or RPGNow today. If you are a backer at another tier, it's not out of reach, and you can pick it up for just $4.99 at DriveThru or RPGNow.
This completes the two major releases of the Kickstarter, and it leaves the relatively smaller pieces outstanding for 2013: the Bonus Bestiary and the miniadventure (with map!), plus some special print items for the highest tiers. We'll pick up the work on those after the New Year.
As always, comments welcome, and thank you for your support!
After some back-and-forth with the printer, it seems that the Bestiary can be printed in color without totally breaking the bank. The only downside is that this will push the release of the backer copies to late October.
I hope that's acceptable to all the backers. I think the color art is worth the wait.
