      Any info on file downloads? The dropbox links I have no longer work.

      Any news on "Into Innsmouth" Playset? The update from three months ago said you were working on "finishing touches."

    3. Scott Acker on July 3, 2015

      Thanks Craig B-)

      Hey Sean, what's going on?

    5. Joshua Haney on February 14, 2015

      Is there a timeline on when we might expect to see the "Into Innsmouth" Playset?
      Thanks Much.

    6. Identityflux on February 12, 2015

      Just to ask - any reason the name I gave on the survey to be added to the list of backer credits wasn't included in the final product? ;(

    7. Craig Judd on January 13, 2015

      @Scott Acker, I was just going over my KS deliverables today. Tremulus is doing really well on slowly but surely releasing all the stretch goal material.

      According to my list, there's only one more Playset to come: Into Innsmouth. I haven't been able to find any info yet about when to expect it, but entire playset packages take a lot of work!

      All the files should be on Dropbox; you should be able to find a link in your Kickstarter Messages from Sean.

    8. Scott Acker on December 19, 2014

      Did all the extras finally get completed? If so, is there an easy place to download them?

    9. Sean Preston Creator on July 24, 2014

      Thanks, Miles!

      We're celebrating the love with our Spread the Madness sale spotlighted in today's update!

      So... tremulus got ENnies nominations for: "Best Rules", "Best Setting", "Best Writing", "Best Game" and "Product of the Year"... What an amazing achievement for an "indie" game! Congrats, Sean!!!

      When can we expect the next dose of tremulus?

      Just wanted to say I printed the same pages from the same file from another computer on the network with no trouble, so I know it's something isolated to the one computer and likely nothing to do with the file itself in particular.

      Anyone else having trouble printing from the museum playset pdf? I'm trying to print out the playbooks and each time I try to print the front of the curator's playbook printing just jerks to a halt and I have to clear my print queue. I've had trouble printing other things lately, but this might just be tangentially related to those problems and I want to rule out the pdf itself.

    14. Joshua Haney on January 9, 2014

      Thanks Sean, I appreciate it!

    15. Sean Preston Creator on January 9, 2014


      The Museum launches today. I'm working on the post right now.



    16. Joshua Haney on January 8, 2014

      Just curious as to when we might expect the next set of playbooks? Thanks much!

    17. Sean Preston Creator on November 27, 2013

      No. More madness is coming!

    18. Scott Acker on November 26, 2013

      Have we received all the playbooks?

    19. Acritarche on November 6, 2013

      Received my dices yesterday. Thanks Sean!

      Hello fellow investigators!

      Need some time to relax and recover from physical and mental drain?
      Have a look at this:…

      Lovecraftian Horror with a twist.
      Play as graceful cats: Hunt some mice, battle other animals (foul worshippers of ancient evils) and save the hand that feeds you (if you want to).


    21. Acritarche on October 21, 2013

      Thank you, Sean. I understand. Shit happens sometimes.

    22. Sean Preston Creator on October 17, 2013

      Everything has been sent. Evidently, our distributor neglected to completely fulfill your order, Acritaarche. We're getting you taken care of. Our apologies!

    23. Acritarche on October 17, 2013

      Congrats for the release of tremulus in shops. I looked at Leisuregames and see that they have dices.
      This came as a surprise to me since I didn't got them when I got my book home. Is this an error or haven't you send them to backers yet?

    24. Sean Preston Creator on October 1, 2013

      Yup. I can confirm that it's all laid out and is getting one final pass before release. Thanks for the nice words, and all the stretch goals are coming along well. More info in a proper update concurrent with The Cemetery release.

    25. KFC on October 1, 2013

      Just popped in to say the Cemetary playset coming soon according to RB FB.

    26. Alessandro S. on September 16, 2013

      How are the Journey/Expedition/Frozen Wasteland playbooks doing? I've got some Arctic mods I'd like to run with tremulus and they'd be ideal. Thx.

    29. Sean Preston Creator on September 3, 2013

      @Pavel: You should've received it sometime back. We'll check into it.

      @Michael: Thanks for the nice words! I hesitate to put an exact release schedule on stretch goals just yet. We're working on it with much fervor.

      @John: Glad you dig it! Thanks for all your support!

      @Russell: I appreciate your sentiments. I truly do! Thanks so much.

      I got my package a couple of weeks before my birthday in July. Love the hardcover and soft cover versions. Due to my hardcover being numbered 12 (think it's actually 012), I've nicknamed it "Dark Insight". Also, love the materials used for the rubbery cover. What is it? I'm itching to know. Love everything about the book, except some relatively minor quibbles related to misprints. I wish I could stand to read PDF rulebooks, but for some reason my eyes get particularly bleary with long rulebooks on a monitor. Oh well, I can compile a list of issues to address in errata and future printings. In fact, I'd be glad to! I know you guys have a lot on your plates, and when you're busy and possibly somewhat tired, it's easy to overlook details. Just one last thing: could you consider posting an approximate release schedule for the rest of the stretch goals?

    32. John Drinkwater on August 10, 2013

      Hardcover book arrived this week ... love it, thank you !

      I just got my hardcover version of the book. I am an international backer (from Australia) and I want to thank Sean for his amazing work. The book looks incredible and it was a joy to be able to hold it and the dice - which also look amazing.

      Thanks guys :D.

    34. Matt Canale on July 31, 2013

      Oh hey! Got the corrected version today. Looks good. Thanks!

    35. Stephen Crawford on July 29, 2013

      My softcover looks beautiful! I got one of the special-edition upside-down versions first, and I just got my normal one in the mail. I plan to use the upside-down one for extra disorientation-ness when called for.

    36. Sean Preston Creator on July 27, 2013

      Carl: Shoot a message to us via KS, and we can check on the order status for you. Thanks!

    37. Carl Hickman on July 27, 2013

      Anyone still expecting their hardcover copy to come in the mail yet? I only ask because I haven't received mine yet and I would like to know if it is just me.

      I received my softcover today, no printing issues. The book looks great! The first thing my wife said upon seeing it was "that looks really cool!" Thanks, guys!

      Thank you, I received my hardcover.

      Unfortunately, my book is damaged.
      The upper corner of my book back is "bumped".
      The envelope was not stable enough for international shipping to Germany. You need pictures?

      Please let me know, what do next?

      Beside the damage the book makes a really good first impression.

      For those with issues with their books, please read Update 36.

      So any recourse for those of us with upside-down books?

      Jacob Trewe on July 19, 2013

      I did not get an upside-down cover and am thrilled with the quality of the product. (USA) Thanks!

    45. Sean Preston Creator on July 19, 2013

      Hello All! If you got an upside down book cover, I'm sorry. We're presently going around with the printer about this, and I'm certain it will be sorted out soon. Please send a message if you have an upside down cover, rather than posting it in the comments, as messages are easier for us to track. (If you've already sent a message (not a comment), thank you.) We appreciate your cooperation and are sorry for the inconvenience!

    46. Robert Jackson on July 19, 2013

      Softback Book just arrived, looks excellent. I'll have to give it a read! Thanks!

    47. Michael Welker on July 18, 2013

      My copy was upside down too. Not happy about it... I wonder if the printer will generate extras at no charge.

    48. Overspawn on July 18, 2013

      Just got my hardcover copy, looks even better than i thought it would, i finally have an rpg book that feels and looks like a book, can't wait to run a game.
      Little disappointed that i wasnt listed in backer credits but these things happen when you have 2k+ people to list.

    49. KFC on July 18, 2013

      Books have just arrived in Poland in perfect condition. Muchos gracias!

    50. Gulix on July 18, 2013

      It has arrived in France. My reading of the summer
