Have a question?
Update went out today guys. I'm afraid this early in the development process you'll need to expect it to be a bit quiet- there really isn't going to be much interesting to tell you.
As far as new fluff or fiction is concerned, all my free time is taken up with developing the rulebook. I'm currently writing 5 hours a day on top of my paid job, and so I don't want to take time away from that to update the website. When the rulebook is written, or at least further along, I'll be blogging again, but for the moment I need to concentrate on the main goal.
Anyway, about an update a month is the best i've been able to do so far, and I think that's a reasonable amount of communication for the early part of the campaign, where inevitably there won't be a great deal to tell. I'm looking forward to actual prototypes and artwork coming in, so I can make a few shorter, but more exciting updates! Soon!
I've been thinking the same thing. Pretty quiet on TDE front.
After such an amazing campaign, and the growth of a great community, it's a shame things have gone so quiet here, on Facebook, and on the Drowned Earth webpage. Any chance of an update? New fluff or fiction?
hoping to get an update soon or better yet get the pledge manager open
Hi. Any news?
Hey Andrew. The beta versions are already in the downloads section of the website: www.thedrownedearth.com
How do you get access to rules and cards etc as a backer?
No indeed- I replied to Fall privately explaining that. Won't be too much longer now.
@fall, I'm not sure the pledge manager is even online at the moment
Sorry but I did not receive a link or
e-mail for my pledge
Just adjusted my printer and made me some standees.
Terrain is almost finished and next week i will get my mate and me a good time rolling some dice for feats and nails ;)
Speaking of dinos ... are most people content to just get a pair of each? Or does anyone thing we need multiple sets?
I will probably bet he only one in my gaming group to get minis, so I need enough for everyone (not just what I might field). Thoughts?
One day without Drowned Earth... damn...
=D Sweet! Dinosaurs!!
Great value on the Master Builder pledge ... 31 miniatures for £200 works out at £6.45 each, not including the rulebook, templates, dice and tokens. And some of these minis are giant gorillas or £18-22 cavalry models. Great campaign too ... the competitions and videos added a lot of interest. Now if I can just learn to paint faster by next April!
Congratulation James and good luck with the follow up, I hope it will go as smooth as possible
Amazing campaign, I can't wait to play now!
1000 comments with this one... Have to do it ^^
well done 914% funded
Whoop! Well done mate
Great work James.
I have a feeling a huge Update will come today. ^^
Upped mine to master builder level, now just have to sell unused stuff to cover the difference but it will be well worth it when this arrives :)
Break out the bubbly
Congratulations James! ... and to the rest of you guys, too :D
Just went in last few minutes to increase pledge to include all of the dinosaurs as add ons and instead changed to the all in pledge. Well it was too good value not to ;-)
Congrats on an awesome campaign James!
Cant wait for it toarrive!
With 75 seconds to go ... I backed at Master Builder. Just far too enticing to wait. Who needs to eat? Food is over-rated!
Excited for the next steps for this game. Will be introducing the game to the local gaming community for sure!
So glad to see this did as well as it has! Really looking forward to seeing how the game develops. Congratulations, James! :)
Yep, I totally agree with that- the end of the campaign marks the beginning of the game's life! Very excited about the future. I must concentrate on what's important at this moment in time- production and delivery, but I am full of ideas for the future, both of the game and community!
@Jocke, true that !
I'm definitely planning to go to Crisis this year, Antwerpen isnt that far away :D
@Amber: Not over... right now it begins for real, we all have kickstarted this project which now could begin rolling. Also, we, as a community should stay in touch, hope to see some of you at Crisis in Antwerpen this year.
Oh, hey domeheads... great and fun campaign :)
Genuine excitement for this one! It's been a great campaign, loved throwing out location and character ideas... last few minutes guys! Up your pledge to the All In, it'll be worth it!
@Jocke, well said :) I couldn't agree more!
Also I can't believe it's almost over
@ Jocke - well said. This has been a great campaign for a fantastic game set in an amazing world that has built a fantastic community. Huge thanks to James for his creativity, hard work, and dedication to the project and its supporters.
Less than half an hour left.
Great campaign James.
Cheers and sleep well ;)
Thanks for all the kind words guys- it's been my absolute pleasure! Exhausting, but huge fun.
And yep, Domeheads unlocked just in time. Whoohoo! :D
@ Jocke, couldn't have said it better. Thanks James
I love everything about this campaign ... but have no budget for this right now. And no jungle terrain of any kind. Zero, zilch, nada. And I really should just sigh and walk away.
I have wrestled over backing this all-in (Master Builder which is such a HUGE bargain) or not at all, there is no middle ground. And maybe a little more time will help. So I just backed at the lowest possible level, and hope this gives me access to a pledge manager, where I can decide to go all-in at a later date.
But if not ... congrats James on a super campaign. You have crafted a brand new world I really want to game in, and that is not an easy thing to do. I can only hope by the time your Pledge Manager is available (if you use one) I have figured out a way to afford this!
Totally like this setting, the minis and your communication with us!
Hats off to you.
Well said Jocke
