I'm happy to report that layout on the Archives of the Sky book is nearly finished! A couple previews to whet your appetite. Click through for larger versions.
As you can see, it's all coming together really nicely and I can't wait to hold this thing in my hands! We redid the layout a bit from our first draft to give things more spacing and breathing room, and I think it really paid off. The book is now coming in at exactly 100 pages and that is very likely to be its final length.
We're still working to round up the right mixture of art for the book, so that's the last piece remaining before we can do a test print. Hopefully we should have that phase wrapped up in the next couple weeks.
A couple of you have asked about the release date, which was originally by the end of the month. Thing have moved a bit more slowly than anticipated, so I'm afraid this has now pushed back a bit. I'm expected to do a test print by the last week of October, and leaving a month for iterations and changes, expect the book and PDF to ship in early December. Apologies for the delay!
If you'll be at the Big Bad Con convention in Walnut Creek, CA this weekend, say hi! I'm running Archives and a very freeform storygame called Okult by Wilhelm Person, about a group of childhood friends reuniting as adults to take on the evil in their hometown... sound familiar? It's very character-focused and should be a lot of fun.
I'm chomping at the bit to give you guys a sneak peak at artwork. Stay tuned for more on that front, and talk soon! I'll leave you with a cool image not from the book, but from space photo processor Ukstillalive. Keep wandering!
