*HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT*

LARRY DIXON AND MERCEDES LACKEY ARE JOINING US ON THIS AMAZING JOURNEY!!!! See Update #41.

* HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT*

---------------------

Missed the Kickstarter? Fear not, loyal griffon, you can head here to get in on the action, and it still counts towards all the stretch goals! This will only be available for a limited time, so take wing today!
---------------------

With your help, the Campaign Setting for Ponyfinder was a rousing success. It has detailed the world of Everglow, where ponies have created a kingdom for themselves for hundreds of years. But what of the griffons? Lurking high in the mountains, trading primarily with the pegasi, these apex predators are very little known to the rest of the world.

This book pulls back that curtain, showing the history of Everglow from the perspective of the griffons, from the start all the way through to the end of the empire. Learn of the different kinds of griffons, from pride aspected lions to the clever raven headed ones and even the pious prey species that lay themselves humble before the might of their Sun King god.

The book will also go into detail in how griffons approach adventuring, their opinions and attitudes regarding the various classes, and unique racial archetypes to add that special griffon flare to their adventuring lifestyle.

Join us in the skies today by supporting us. Let your imagination, and the griffons, take flight in this 32+ page expansion book exploring the biology, social structure, and proud lives of these majestic hunters of the clouds.

A basic breakdown of where we want the funds to go:

But wait, why isn't writing on that list? That's easy. The writer, the same person writing this list, David Silver, is fine not being paid in advance. He'll collect on what the book earns after the Kickstarter, as well as any extra earned by the Kickstarter itself once the book is completely finished and printed.

Art takes up a large portion of our budgeting, because pictures help inspire the imagination, and we love our artists. We want to bring this world to life before you, and that requires good artists that can afford to pay full attention to the project.

Risks and challenges

You put your faith into us with the Ponyfinder Campaign Setting, and we bore it through to the end. The plan hasn't changed(though we'll be giving ourselves more time). We'll be working with you all to make a great book and make sure it gets to your inbox or mail box as appropriate.
