NerdBurger Online, Progress, and Pre-Orders

Hey there, Macs and Janes,  

GenCon has come and gone. Several backers swung by the IGDN booth on Thursday to check out the book in progress. I ran some CAPERS and some Die Laughing. Schmoozed, networked, and found some lines into possible expansion of NerdBurger Games’ online presence.  

To that end… 

NerdBurger Online Presence 

I’m looking for fans of NerdBurger Games who are interested in helping me increase NerdBurger Games’ online presence. Two things in particular: 

Actual Play Streaming/Podcasting 

I’m looking for someone who either has an established Twitch channel for indie RPG actual play or is interested in starting one up for NerdBurger Games. The world of actual play streams/videos is a boon to any game that can establish such a thing. If I try to do this myself, it eats up free time, time I would lose from designing more for existing games and designing new games. 

If this is something you’d like to help me with, email me at NerdBurgerGames@gmail.com and let’s start a dialogue. I can provide you with a ton of support and all the art/character sheet assets you’d need. See “Disclaimer,” below. 

Roll20 Playset 

I’m looking for someone interested in helping NerdBurger Games (CAPERS in particular) get into Roll20. Roll20 is a great place for playing online RPGs with features built in for character sheets, dice rolling, card flipping, shared tabletop, maps, minis, etc. Creating such assets is time consuming and not something I’m conversant in. And again, it would take time away from me actually working on game design. 

If this is something you’d like to help me with, email me at NerdBurgerGames@gmail.com and let’s start a dialogue. I can provide you with a ton of support and all the art/character sheet assets you’d need. See “Disclaimer,” below. 

Disclaimer 

Actual Play Streaming and Roll20 are time-consuming and require expertise I don’t have. NerdBurger Games is just me. I contract out for help in things. I can’t promise anything specific in terms of compensation here, but I won’t leave you out in the cold if you want to help with any of this stuff. Compensation can come in a variety of forms. Some monetary compensation. Free product (existing and future games).Early previews of game work in progress, even before playtesters get involved. Other things. A combination of these things. Let’s talk. Maybe we can come to an agreement. 

The Playing Cards 

The playing card deck is more or less finalized. I’m getting a proof deck made now. Here’s a look at a couple of queens of Prohibition. Giada is Al Capone’s mentor in Chicago. Rita is Nucky Johnson’s right-hand woman in Atlantic City. 

Paper Minis 

Here’s a look at more progress with the paper minis. 

Maps 

Here’s a look at more progress with the maps. This is a small, hidden distillery. It pairs with a hidden warehouse map that will connect to the bottom edge so you can use either one individually or both together. (There are things missing…as I said, work in progress.) 

Moxie Cards 

And here’s a version of the Moxie cards we’re toying around with. 

Adventures 

The backer rewards for CAPERS includes four adventures in PDF. They’re all written, formatted, and ready to go. I’m tinkering with the cover pages. Here’s the first rendition of the cover for Rivals, a first level adventure for gangster characters. Rivals is the adventure that appeared in the CAPERS Preview Edition. 

Backerkit Reminder 

As we get closer to publication, here’s a reminder. If you know anyone who missed out on the Kickstarter and wants to snag a pre-order, tell them togo HERE. The pre-order is the same as the $15 Bootlegger Kickstarter backer level. Everything in PDF plus discount links to buy books, cards, maps, and minis in physical form. 

That’s it for now. If you have questions, fire an email to NerdBurgerGames@gmail.com and make sure to check out the Google+ community and my Twitter.
