Oops! I forgot to do a Sept update.

Let's start with a progress update, shall we? 

Where things stand:

Progress chart for September
Progress chart for September

That's right. I've turned the files over to the interior designer, who will work the files into a readable format. I'm also in the process of turning over the files that the cover designer will need.

And that's the last progress chart, folks. I won't be making any more. After this is completed, it's a matter of getting the books printed and shipped to you. For the ebooks, I just have to add the art to the Scrivener file and compile them. No worries. 

What about stretch goals goodies?

Let's go through them briefly:

The novel A Key, An Egg, An Unfortunate Remark is with the copy editor. I've also reviewed cover design sketches. from the cover designer

The desktop wallpaper has been turned over to someone with the Photoshop skills to do a decent job of them. I tried to do it myself in GIMP, but I just don't have the moves.

Currently, I'm back at work on the Fate Game supplements while I wait for materials to be returned to me. 

What about Stretch Goal YOU?

Good question! Are you someone who offered material for Stretch Goal You that you haven't completed? Drop a comment below to let us know the status. Will you do it this month? Do you need to beg off because it's just not feasible? Whatever you need to do is cool, but let us know. 

What about the cover for book three?

Yeah, let's have a little look, shall we?

 Amazing, isn't it?

This time next month, I hope to be telling you that the books are being printed and to share the amazing map art from Priscilla Spencer. 

Until then, thanks for your patience.

      Napoleonic historical RPG setting for 20P is in draft, not entirely sure how long it'll end up being but I'll aim for a short version and expand if people like what they see.

      I'm writing it systemless but with a nod to Voidcallers, so people can use the material for whatever system they wish.

      ETA: Aiming for a presentable version by the end of November [Just started new job and part-time study!]

      Update as requested: I said I would write a Twenty Palaces story. It has been backburnered due me being a jerk, and also to work and an inordinate number of weddings. I hope to get to it in October.

      Fred, I didn't expect you to give away the Voidcallers material for free. I thought you were going to make a product that your company would sell. In fact, I would encourage that. Just being willing to work on it is worth a stretch goal on its own.

      Sean, totally understand. Thanks.

      Heikki, thanks for linking to that again. I'm sure a lot of people missed it last time.

      Thanks, you guys.

      20 Palaces during the Great War short story started, FATE part will have to wait on Evil Hat getting their rules done (as you have time!). Been distracted with other things but will try to get back to it soon.

      Update as requested: Evil Hat got me way busy and I haven't had time to circle back around to my thoughts on 20P in Fate. Apologies for that. It's not forgotten but with paid priorities at the forefront it is a deep backburner project right now.
