July EX3 Update

Hello Deluxe EX3 Backers!

RichT here:

Last month, I told you about waiting for the printer proofs for the Deluxe EX3. I got them, fine-tuned them with the printer, and signed off on them. Here's what they looked like (I tried to get an angle on the stack of interior position proofs to demonstrate the heft of those things):

Right now, the interior of the Deluxe EX3 is being printed.

In fact, here are some pics our printer was nice enough to take of the first two sections to come off the press:

 

The Ex3 Screen is with the printer. I'm working with the map printer as well for the canvas map. Charm Cards and Chibi Bookmarks are being prepared. The Music Suites continue to be composed.

FYI: It is our intention that all of the physical rewards will also be available as PDF/electronic rewards, and any that can also be available as physical products beyond the Kickstarter, whether Print on Demand or overrrun copies from the KS print jobs, will be as well as soon as we can after we get backers their rewards.

Meanwhile... This is the status of other EX3 related projects:

First Draft (The first phase of a project that is about the work being done by writers, not dev prep)

•Exalted 3rd Novel by Matt Forbeck (Exalted 3rd Edition)

Redlines

•EX3 Quickstart (Exalted 3rd Edition)

Second Draft

•Arms of the Chosen (Exalted 3rd Edition)

•The Realm (Exalted 3rd Edition)

•Dragon-Blooded (Exalted 3rd Edition)

And we just need confirmation from the Devs that all the errata, including an additional Backer Charm that expands on one of those already in the book, is completely fnished for the Backer Charm book and we will finalize the PDF and create the PoD version and put them up for general sale. Once again, thanks to all of you who sent us notes on this!

Onyx Path'll be at Gen Con next week and we hope to see any of you attending the convention. Come by the booth and say Hi! (John and Holden will not be able to attend this year due to an ongoing family medical situation).

Thanks for your support, as always!

Hello Deluxe EX3 Backers!

RichT here:

Right now, we are waiting for printer proofs of both Deluxe versions of EX3 from the traditional printer. The Ex3 Screen is with the printer as well. I'm sending the map file to that printer as well for the canvas map. And the Charm Cards and Chibi Bookmarks are being prepared. The Music Suites continue to be composed. Meanwhile...

EX3 May Update

Hello Deluxe EX3 Backers!

RichT here:

Right now, we are prepping the Deluxe versions of EX3 for the traditional printer. The Ex3 Screen as well as the Backer Charm book that was a Reward and an Add-on are with the new White Wolf Publishing for their approval.

As soon as we get the OK from them for the Backer Charm book PDF, we'll get that out to those who backed that Reward Tier, and then I'll go through each pledge level individually and send links to the many folks who added that PDF on to their pledges. It's a multi-day process, so bear with me. :)

The Canvas Maps are ready to go to their printer, and the Charm Cards and Chibi Bookmarks are being prepared. The Music Suites continue to be composed.

Hello Deluxe EX3 backers-

RichT here:

PDF/PoD Versions of EX3

Right now, I am waiting for the PoD proofs for Exalted 3rd Edition to arrive from the PoD printer. Should those be printed to our satisfaction, and I OK the proofs, we'll put the updated PDF and the PoD book version up for sale on DriveThruRPG.com for the general public, maybe as soon as next week.

Your Backer PDFs will be automatically updated to the updated PDF, and will be in your DTRPG LIbrary area.

Because this has taken so very long, we want to say thanks to you for all of your great support.

So before the PDF/PoD versions go on sale on DTRPG, we will send every backer a link for a discounted version of the PoD, cut to as close to the cost for us to print it as we can get it.

This PoD version is NOT the Deluxe version you pledged for. We are offering the EX3 PoD at cost for those backers who want it, not as anything you have to do. Your Deluxe EX3 that you pledged for is being prepped for the traditional printing that is part of this KS.

Deluxe EX3

We use the PoD as our last proof that the files are as we want them, as traditional printing files and PoD files are pretty much prepped the same way. If the PoD proofs are good, we will then get the traditional printing files ready and out to our printer.

At the same time, those other projects from the Kickstarter that ship with the Deluxe EX3 (both Deluxe versions) like the EX3 Screen and the canvas poster map, also will go to their printers.

Other EX3 Projects

Here are where other EX3 projects are in their production:

Redlines

•EX3 Quickstart (Exalted 3rd Edition)

I've also been talking with our composer for the Ex3 Music Suites and he is starting work on the Sidereals theme, and we should have very good news about the Novia novel in April.

Thanks!
