Pledge Manager Open & Production Update

7 likes

Hi folks!

Strap yourselves in for a rather comprehensive update!

First and foremost, the pledge manager is now open. Please check your spam filters and junk for the relevant email inviting you to partake in the pledge manager. It is extremely important that you finalize your details. Both Craig and myself are on hand to help resolve any issues, so please do get in touch if there are any. Again, though, please do take the time to track down the email and complete your response, or get in touch if there are issues. The pledge manager will remain open for another 3 weeks to allow plenty of time for everyone to complete their account.

With that out of the way, it's time to talk progress:

Hopefully by now, anyone who has downloaded the Devil's Run Quickstart from DriveThruRPG will have received a note concerning an updated pdf. The Quickstart has now been updated with two additional pregens, both with stats for 2d20 and Savage Worlds. The two new pregens introduce interesting dynamics that are being explored further in the corebook: animal companions and upgrades. Pach Man and his trusy companion, Blue, were introduced in the previous update, but now you also have Tera, a lady for whom the term fixer applies in numerous ways. Tera has already been introduced as part of the miniature for Nerubian's CabCroozer, but now she has official artwork and stats for both the RPG and board game. (She's included with the Misfits cards in their faction pack.)

Besides the two pregens, the Quickstart has also been updated to include the relevant Savage Worlds Edges and dynamics that are being worked on. You will have an opportunity to view each faction's Savage Worlds representation once they're all complete, but please do provide any feedback in the meantime!

If you haven't downloaded the Quickstart via DriveThruRPG but instead opted for the direct download via Dropbox, the Quickstart itself can now be downloaded from this link. Inside the folder, you will also find three screensavers, all repeated in two distinct formats (for a total of 6 images).

The actual project itself continues apace. In terms of production, all 3d renders excepting the Kickstarter exclusive El Nora are in, with the majority of those vehicles also printed and moulded. All we await are those all-important pledge manager confirmations before production proceeds apace! Card text for the Misfits has been approved, which is a rather large chunk of the cards required for the vehicles on offer. I'll be able to share some snapshots once they're laid out an proofed. Crossover rules are also underway, which is very exciting as this is the element that will allow you to move seamlessly between the RPG and board game if you choose.

For the coreboook itself, Benn and myself are working apace on the 2d20 character generation, skills/talents, and character economy (cash) chapters. Besides that, I'm also rounding out the Savage Worlds rules relevant to each faction. Our independent writers are on task on their own projects, which is currently condensing the large amounts of background material written for the factions - currently 13 with the RPG factions - to bitesize chunks for the corebook. We have a good head start on the content and as chapters pass through editing into layout, I'll begin offering them up for perusal/feedback.

In other exciting news, we also have two projects underway to further expand the Devil's Run RPG line beyond Kickstarter delivery! I know there were a few questions concerning support for the project beyond delivery, so I'm very pleased to confirm that there are a number of works in the pipeline! More on these later as they take formally take shape.

That's it for now. Once again, please do remember to complete the pledge manager and/or get in touch if there are any problems.

      I been a lazy git and real life stuff happening, when does the pledge manager close I will try and get it done this week

      @John you should have a 'tracked' option to the US now for up to 2kg. Let me know if you have any probs!

    4. Marc Langworthy, Red Scar 2-time creator on

      @John sorry for the late reply. I've spoken to Games Quest, who can offer tracked to the US, though it bumps the price up a little. Just waiting to chat to Craig to see what we can offer on the PM side of things. However it happens, I'll make sure you're covered. Just as a heads up, tracked up to 2kg will be £20, up to 3kg will be £22. Will keep you posted (no pun intended)

      Have you added a "tracked shipment" option to the pledge manager yet?

      Ok, color me stupid. I was looking for a new invite as well. I also completed this back on 8JUN.

      @Gordon sorry for the confusion, it was meant to be more a reminder for anyone who hasn’t completed it or might have missed the initial email

      I was confused about this myself, then found that I had responded to the Pledge Manager two weeks ago. This update makes it sound like it just came out, when it's actually been out for a while.

    9. Craig Andrews Collaborator on

      @Ron - Send me an email at craig@shattered-glass.co.uk and I'll have a look and get your invite resent.

      @Rich - The Pledge Manager URL is in the invite email, send me an email over to craig@shattered-glass.co.uk and I'll resend it out to you.

    10. Marc Langworthy, Red Scar 2-time creator on

      @Ron the emails should have gone out already. I’ll check with Craig and ask him to resend

      @Rich the invite will be via email, I’ll also ask Craig to check and resend if necessary

      Did the invite already go out or is this a "keep an eye out" message? Asking because no email received yet (and yes checked spam/junk).
