Update in short: Creating DreadBall digital book is released, Alessio Cavatore is running a new Kickstarter, Season 2 Upgrades and Season 3 Rulebook are shipping and we're still rather busy, so please message us if you have a question :)

Rather excitedly, the Creating DreadBall digital book is done and dusted and has now been emailed out to backers at Striker! and up. It's only just gone, so if it's not landed in your inbox yet, give it ten minutes, check back and it should be there.

Featuring articles on design, art, and playtesting right through to a compilation of our concept art, this great little download should tide you over until we get the Backer MVPs rules back from Jake, who is currently working on the 2014 League Pack (which we intend to do something special with for our Kickstarter Backers).

New Kickstarter: Tarot of LOKA

One of longstanding partners is running a new Kickstarter that we wanted to share with you.

Alessio Cavatore and River Horse currently have the Tarot of LOKA running on Kickstarter. Alessio asked us to share this with you, and we kindly obliged as we thought it might be of interest. It’s nothing to do with us, we’re concentrating on getting everyone’s orders out, but as it features nice art by Ralph Horsley and interesting game mechanics, we thought you might be interested.

Now shipping

You’ll be pleased to know that we started shipping out the Season 2 Upgrades and Season 3 Rulebook on Thursday last week, meaning you should start receiving them shortly.

And finally…

Please note that next week we will be incredibly busy shipping our Deadzone Kickstarter and that means all hands on decks.

During this busy holiday shipping period we are unable to efficiently cover the comments, so please please – if you have an urgent message, contact us via the Kickstarter private messages and we will do our best to get back in touch, though response times will be a little longer than normal as we work our way through the shipping.

Thank you for your patience and your support.

      I''m still missing some parts that I paid for extras in the last shipping, and I asked them 2 months ago via EMAIL, and they said it have been ship mid-november. Where are my stuff?

      The summary page at the end of Season 3 is gone. It used to be there in the old Season 3 book.

      Is this omission intentional? It was always handy during games and I just want to make sure that I am referring to an outdated document.

      Heh heh. I was JUST about to print that out before reading it, when I saw the posts in here. Wait to print to hard copy...roger that.

      Hey guys! Sorry about this, our graphic designer's fixing it all up, and we'll get an updated version up on WGV. You should get an email once that's done :)

      I was just coming to post about the Cheerleader headers on pages 8, 9, 27, and 41. I think they're mistakes that should be removed entirely as they overlap writing and pictures.

      Also, The numbering is off. The 2nd page of the PDF is labeled "3" at the bottom, so either my PDF is missing a page or the numbers should all be reduced by one.

      Triple-post. :-/ (sorry) page 41 also has the Cheerleader header when it should read "Z'zor Team".

      Creator Talarius on December 2

      Correction: Corp & Orx greens. Super-pixelated. Pages 8 & 9 have a "Cheerleaders" header for no reason whatsoever, as those pages don't refer to Cheerleaders. Page 27 also has this header, which should have "Corporation Team" instead. If you upload a corrected version, let us all know.

      Thanks for the book, I look forward to reading it later tonight. Unfortunately there is something wrong with the photo on page 6. Very pixelated shot of the Corp greens? It is for me at least. Glad to hear that the Backer MVP rules are in the pipeline. :-)
