Scenarios and Yet More Rules: Post-Kickstarter week 28
Hello beautiful residents of Gloomhaven!
Is it Friday already? My dog and I just sit at home all day, every day, so sometimes we lose track. Well, let's be honest - my dog never knows what day it is.
But anyway, I'm pretty sure it's Friday, so it's time to update you on the week's progress!
First of all, thanks so much for all your comments on the ability cards. There were actually fewer edits than I was expecting, so that's good. And it is certainly not too late to send me more feedback on them. If you happened to miss last week's update, you can find the starting class cards here and the (SPOILERS) advanced class cards here. And this is a really good place to post feedback.
In addition, we are also welcoming more feedback on the rule book. Josh whipped up a new version for us and it awaits your critical gaze here.
As for me, I am still roughly on schedule with my timeline, which makes me happy. I finished the monster stat cards over the weekend and am now knee-deep in the scenario book, which I have made significant progress on over the last few days.
I've laid out about 15 scenarios in the last week and have another 45 to go, so it looks like I'm still on track to get a rough version of it finished in three weeks. I'd like it to go faster, but almost all of the story text for these scenarios needs to be written as well.
We'll see. Maybe I'll be able to finish in two weeks.
All right, so that's all the update I have for you, but I did want to mention two more things real quick.
First of all, Richard Ham of Rahdo Runs Through is doing his yearly Kickstarter to fund the existence of his vital Youtube channel. He is a shining star in the board game community, and, quite frankly, Gloomhaven would not exist without him. His exuberant run-through of my first game was so mind-blowingly positive, it gave me the confidence to pursue this whole board game publishing thing full-time. And thus, Gloomhaven was born.
So go throw him a few bucks if you find his videos at all helpful.
And secondly, I just wanted to give a shout-out to my boys at the Brawling Brothers Board Gaming Podcast on their one-year anniversary. They now have a full year's worth of ridiculous, highly entertaining podcast episodes to listen to, so congrats on that!
Okay, now I'm done for real. I hope all you U.S. backers remembered to file your taxes!
Until next time!
