The books and the custom cards have arrived. They will be signed and shipped out shortly! Thank you so much for your help in making this game a reality. I would love for you to email your thoughts about the game at firstname.lastname@example.org, OR EVEN BETTER, tell me about the Reclamation Journeys that you go on with your friends. I will be demonstrating the game at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus that runs from May 30th to June 3rd. If you plan to attend, please please please make a point to stop by and say hello! (I don't have a sales booth, but I do have several adventures lined up in the registration guide).
This is by no means the end of the line. Should Reclamation "take off" so to speak, I have several supplemental guides in mind, and of course I still have a bonus mini-adventure to provide you all (still in the works). I will let you know when that is complete through Kickstarter. As always, keep up with us on our blog/site and like Reclamation RPG on facebook!
I am proud to announce that Reclamation is complete and ready for distribution! Check out our Lulu spotlight page on Architect Games to see the paperback, hardback, and digital license versions of Reclamation on sale:
A watermarked PDF version of Reclamation is also available at DriveThruRPG:
Paperback and hardback copies will be made available on DriveThruRPG shortly.
I am also excited to say that I have ordered the paperback and hardback copies of Reclamation for all of my qualifying kickstarters! I promise to get these shipped out to you ASAP. Also, if any kickstarter is having trouble accessing the PDF version that I supplied by way of Dropbox, please let me know and I will help you get your electronic copy of the game!
This certainly has been a wild ride, and while I have enjoyed every step of the process, I am thankful to at last take a deep sigh of breath and utter the words, "I'm done!" for the first time in almost seven years! Again, I could not have brought this game to life without your support; thank you a million times over!
I have been working incredibly hard these last few weeks to tie up all the loose ends so that I can get Reclamation out for print. I am just waiting on a few more pictures and then I will be ready to go! It has certainly been a wild ride with countless ups and downs. As I've expressed before, I am so humbled by all of your support, and I hold myself accountable to produce a final product that I will be proud of and one that you will enjoy! My goal is to post another update to Kickstarter in the next week where I can announce that the game is off to print!
However, before that happens, I wanted to at least give you a sneak peak of some of the stuff I have been working on. Here is a sample of the Custom Reclamation game cards. There are a couple modifications that I am still going to make to them. For the face cards, I am going to include a plus and minus value to make it absolutely clear what the card depicts. For example, the black king will say +16 and the red king will say -16. Anyway, I am excited about these cards, mostly because of the incredible artwork. Hope you agree!
