Backers and other interested parties, 

Behold the Book! 

Version 19; we're currently past 22
Version 19; we're currently past 22

It's basically done, and it's great. We're very happy with it. But it's not yet ready - we're still catching little mishaps and apply tiny corrections. We expect to send the Crystal Heart PDF to all backers early July, and we'll of course notify you when that happens. 

 
The Comic is Back

I mean, it's great that there's an actual roleplaying game and everything, but we still have a story to tell here, you know? (And the funny part is, what we've just revealed will not be in the game - not yet, anyway. It'll have to wait for the Original Syn supplement, in which we reveal all of the webcomic's secrets.) 

Where Are We Now? May Edition

As the layout work on the book continues, we turn our attention to the other stuff. Here's some of that stuff:

The Action and Adventure Decks are almost ready for printing! All of the face cards in the Action Deck are Heroic Agents created by backers (and us). The one we see here is Nui, a courageous Islander sea captain who hunts treasure, by Brian. She carries two Crystals, but that's allowed, she took the Edge for it. Stealing an autoplane is less allowed, but she did that too. 

Action and Adventure cards!
Action and Adventure cards!

The character sheet is now ready, featuring a landscape design with place for a Crystal sheet to the right, so that the Edges align with the benefit, and Hindrances align with disposition.  

By this time next month  we hope to have the PDF version of the book basically done, gain infinite wisdom and bring world peace, although we'll be cool with any two of these. Have fun!

Well what to do you know, apparently all of this writing does end eventually!

Currently standing at 114K words (we'll have to cut some out, and put in the extra PDFs), the Crystal Heart setting book is already at the last stages of editing and first stages of layout. 

In fact, we have something to show you: 

Not yet finalised, of course.
Not yet finalised, of course.

While this is happening, we're already mid-way on the Adventure Deck -  we showed some back and front options on our Discord - and work will soon begin on the extra PDFs, Living in Syn (new Syn stuff and optional rules) and Full of Heart (new Crystals and their manifestations). We'll also focus on the paper minis, they're the next big art-thing. 

But first we must overcome the manifestation of the Seder Crystal; let me tell you, that thing can ground you for days.

Have a lovely spring/autumn everyone!
