Short project update

Posted by Nicole Lindroos of Green Ronin (Collaborator)

 Hi all, collaborator Nicole here.

Seattle has been under record-breaking ice and snow the last couple of weeks but we're finally (literally) digging out. This is just a brief update to reassure you all that the team has been continuing to move the project along. 

Over the last couple of weeks we've received the proofreader's corrections and implemented all of those. The book layout is final and has been sent to the authors for their last round of approval. How long that takes is in the hands of the authors but they've been great to work with and responsive to all our requests to this point so we expect no issues.

One part of the package that was sent to approvals is this fine map which we're happy to show off. (Keep in mind this has not yet been formally approved so there could be changes requested, though as I said, we expect this to be substantially if not exactly what the final will be.)

In anticipation of releasing the book, developer Steve Kenson used Green Ronin's weekly Ronin Roundtable articles to talk about various aspects of the game and the development. 

 Character Creation 

 Power Armor 

 Space Combat 

 Starting Points 

 Doors and Corners 

With that, I'm out for now. The team will have more for you as soon as there's more to share.

      The map looks great. I’m so looking forward to getting the PDF. I hope the combined personages of James S. A. Corey give their stamp of approval quickly.

      I SO understand!! I Just passed that stage last week with my own book and it's off to the indexer. Good luck and here is too few edits!
      Also, if the PDF is going to be ready soon with this news, it might be a good time to start the ball rolling with emails and the like.

      Some great news, can’t wait to get a look at the finished books. Thanks for the update, and stay safe in the extreme weather.
