      I know this is stressful and you have a lot on your plate. Personally, I'd rather you take the time to do it right than to rush it and have regrets. This is as much an artistic endeavor as a business venture and I really hope that the other backers understand that and give you the space you need. Keep at it and I look forward to the final product.

      hi mike. as i stated in a previous update, both of those games are in development and editing. since there's nothing i can do on either for the foreseeable future, i am taking advantage of a gap in my schedule to sell games that are already finished. this new kickstarter has ZERO impact on the schedule of the other games.

    3. Mike Davies on October 19

      So why are you running more new Kickstarter projects when you still have this and City of Masks not delivered?

      No! No of course not... Was just sayin'

      that's oddly specific and unnerving?

      are you challenging for authority of the clan?

    6. Stephen Mouring on August 16, 2017

      @Creator Don't be stressed...

      Stress is not "I did not finish on time."

      Stress is when you are broken down on salt flats with no gas, now food, no water, angry cannibals on the horizon, and your second in command talking loudly about changes in leadership. That is stress.

      @Postworldgames: I contacted you on July 3rd about a refund using the kickstarter message function but have received no reply. Please contact me.

      The tribe is loosing faith! Better blow us away or the mob will get ugly. I'll crack a skull or two if they get too rowdy, but even I'm feeling it. Be quick and make haste, for we crave what you have. Give me! Give me! Give me!

    9. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on May 31, 2017

      yep. i ran my final playtest this passed weekend. and now it's just heads-down work until it's done. i have about 100+ pages of character information to sort out and make pretty. but otherwise, it's just doing the work now. and of course, since i over-booked myself, it's just a bandwidth issue.

      thanks to everyone for your patience.

      Don't take it too personally. Just communicate with us what the delays are, why they occurred, and when we can expect them to be corrected. I think your backers are a fairly forgiving community.

    11. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on April 10, 2017

      someone is reviewing the work-in-progress as we speak
      250 pages are done, but there's gaps and logic flaws in the organization
      i want to get this perfect
      stress is killing me (being this late)

      The Bulldogs are a segmented group, keeping outsiders from the inner workings of their tribe. From the outside, they look like nothing but warriors and savages. Which is part of their mystique. Their social and working classes are kept hidden inside nissan huts, quonset huts, and underground hovels. Most-importantly, they’ve operated without a leader for nearly a year now. Sadly, the community is starting to buckle and grate. Who knows how long they can last before they turn on one another.

      your tribes can hunger longer

      i care not for their pleas

      the only tribe that matters in the wastes is mine

      (that said, sorry about being incommunicado, i'm struggling with what to put in what order)

    18. Stephen Mouring on October 27, 2016

      My tribe hungers... Feed us Pinto, Lord of the Desert less we perish! Gives us news to feast upon! Let us devour the flesh of an update! The hunger burns... and so does the world!

    19. Exodus Phyr on October 16, 2016

      I'm ready to Concur in the name of my tribe! I can't wait to get the books. Looking forward to seeing the system. Hurry Up!!! Do it now!! I'm sharpening my blades, and my hammer is too dry.

    20. Ashley on September 23, 2016

      I'd prefer it to be via pm or email, but I'm on the app and can't find the function to message you. >.<

    21. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on September 23, 2016

      i can easily do that. would you like me to publish your address here?

    22. Ashley on September 23, 2016

      Is there a way to check in to what shipping address is on file for me? I backed a lot of kickstarters around the same time and ended up moving at the last minute kind of in the middle of all of that, so I honestly can't remember which address I gave you.

    23. Jonathan Breese on August 9, 2016

      Keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to playing it.

    24. Stephen Mouring on July 11, 2016

      A progress report! Or your head on a spike! Do not displease me!

      Congratulations Jim and his backers!!

    28. John M. Portley
      on April 8, 2016

      Thank you, Jim. I hope that it is cleared up soon, and that this project then continues smoothly. Great concept—a bit like a Lego™ build-your-own Apocalypse kit. I am very much interested in starting mine.

    29. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on April 8, 2016

      i've let them know, john

    30. John M. Portley
      on April 8, 2016

      My pledge was declined, not by jim pinto, but by the financial beasts at Kickstarter and their contractor. The reason that I am posting is that I, and dozens of others, went through the same problem last week with another Kickstarter. The problem resided with the contractor or the interchange between KS and that company. Just in case someone else here is having similar problems, checked their cards' balances, submitted a new card, and was still declined. If it does not clear up by Monday, then, if jim pinto is still interested in the money, he should complain to the powers-that-be. In fact, pointing out the problem to KS now so that they can get their act together sooner, rather than later, might be the best choice before the weekend. Anyone else having problems?

    31. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on April 8, 2016

      finally. he gets it. now. if he could just train the rest of the fucking tribe to think that way.

    32. Michael Ramsey

      I increased my ****ing pledge level, since this is the only thing I should be spending my money on.

    33. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on April 7, 2016

      shoreline? i'm going to be in lynwood tomorrow demoing a board game. please don't come to it. just know that i'm there, not thinking of you.

    34. Dave Kester on April 7, 2016

      @jim, you are lucky because I live in Shoreline, otherwise you'd be enjoying the scenery from your first class seat on a Greyhound(tm).

    35. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on April 7, 2016

      are you local? because i only fly first class.

      i am going to run the worst session of anything for you and your friends.

    36. Dave Kester on April 7, 2016


      Its done. I now get everything I want and i guess for at least one gaming session you'll be mine.

    37. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on April 6, 2016

      yeah. that's how you get real power. "made an RPG."

      wow. everyone will respect you then.

    38. Dave Kester on April 6, 2016

      don't try to shirk you responsibilities on me. I want to be "re-elected" as much as you want to. You threatening me with finishing the book might not get you the results you want. But honestly if you need some help I have a box of crayons and google search skills.... I can find content and make great pictures. Plus then I can put "made an RPG" on my resume.

    39. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on April 6, 2016

      nobody cares, dave.

      you want to be re-elected so bad? you got it. you can finish this book!

    40. Dave Kester on April 6, 2016

      BTW: the instructions for making comments on KS says, "Be respectful and considerate." i will uphold this policy except for communications to Jim. Because you know ...

    41. Dave Kester on April 6, 2016

      So here goes. Since Jim is apparently unconcerned about anything other the collection of rag dolls he has been accumulating and now spends all of his time counting and recounting them I'll step up. This will likely get me shot or worse "re-elected" i know i'm taking a risk.

      Some ideas for 13k stretch goals:
      1. Art and I'm not talking about that guy with no arms and legs you hung on the wall. I'm talking about skilled graphics and stuff. Spend some fucking money already instead of stealing art from unknown artists on DeviantArt.
      2. Some list of shit that might happen. Like a list of bad things that can come down on your tribe, or whatever you call your pack.
      3. Descriptions of sites or people. Like some shitty places I can drop in for the players to visit. Something like old Sears buildings up here in Shoreline.
      4. Setting stuff. Descriptions to make the setting feel more real. Again another collection of descriptions that as GM can use to communicate the feel of the game.

      Ok that's all the ideas I want to share. The rest are my f***ing secrets.

      I tried to choose the 50$ level, but as for shipping, I can only choose USA, but I'm from France ...

    43. Diana Sharpe
      on April 4, 2016

      John, there is a photo of the dice and a price. What more do you want for that?

      I will admit I am a bit confused about the decks, though. Only one is currently in the stretch goals, so that is all there will be? It isn't even the probably most important one.

    44. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on April 4, 2016

      john. i didn't want to make 700 pledge levels for decks, cards, etc.

      just write a private message to me. i'll get you a paypal account address and i can mail you dice.

      or cards

      or whatever the **** it is you think you've got coming.

    45. John M. Portley
      on April 4, 2016

      Sooooo…we just go to the Add-on section on the campaign page, where the cost for the decks and dice are easily found…? No, wait. No such thing. That information hasn't been there for the week that I have been looking. Isn't there today. A section that mentions dice and multiple decks, but no cost associated…and the dice are not described. Someone is distracted, at the least.

      To those who back "The Carcass" than withdraw, you would not last during the fall of man. You have inspired a whole new NPC in my games, the jerkface.

      "Jerkface" any person who's total contribution has dipped below the threshold for survival, such that the entire clan views them with contempt. If they cannot backout unobserved, any member of the clan can butcher the spineless bastard as a free scene. :-)

    47. Exodus Phyr on March 31, 2016

      Dammit sheeple, give Jim the money so he can do what he does. We can build a glorious thing here, heave or get cut loose as the dead weight you are. How are you standing without a spine?

    48. Postworldgames Jim Pinto 18-time creator on March 31, 2016

      i don't show emotion easily, dave. and i won't make an exception for you. i don't care what you do with your $50. but news of it not going to your children makes me feel warm inside.

      and if you're really inside the 100 mile radius, consider backing the $5000 level. it won't hurt. i promise. i mean. so long as it's okay with your "wife."

    49. Dave Kester on March 31, 2016

      So Jim! I can call you Jim right? Good. I was looking to spend some money so i can avoid giving it to my kids! After looking over the lackluster list of s*** you are calling "rewards!" I decided to just go ahead and commit to Warlord level. This "hardcover upgrade" better be worth $50 because I'm sure saying that having my name listed in another part of the book from the cheapskates is completely worthless. Anyway, whatever you are doing for the 10k stretch goal, just be sure it doesn't suck. Also, your offer to come run a game is interesting idea for wasting money. but it took me forever to figure out if i was magically inside the 100 mile radius. Then when I found it I realized why. Federal Way? I'd hide that fact too. If i get excited i may upgrade to that "reward!" if i can convince my wife to let you anywhere near the house.
