While the team is hard at work editing and laying out our gamebook, I thought I'd update you all on the production of all our other rewards!
First of all, we received our Sam and Fuzzy dice prototypes... which turned out even better than I'd hoped! Needless to say, we approved them immediately, and should have the full supply of 'em soon.
Meanwhile, our postcards and buttons are all done, and currently making their way through the postal system to our warehouse. We used the same manufacturers that made the Sam and Fuzzy Omnibus' postcards and buttons, so those of you who nabbed those already know to expect only the finest in... postcardery. (And buttonitude.)
Last but not least, for those of you who are curious what an entire RPG gamebook's worth of original illustrations look like when placed into a single haphazard stack, the answer is:
It looks like a lot, but that's what happens when you draw a spot illustration of every single species, job, power, hobby, skill, piece of equipment, enemy, wild animal, Committee member, and NPC... not to mention a bunch of larger illustrations for our faction guide and sample adventures! Plus, I wanted to make sure I had enough particularly cool character/enemy originals to cover all our "Opulent" tier backers... after all, I don't think anyone was really crossing their fingers for a drawing of a med pack, crowbar, or spork.
And, well... that's almost everything! The only additional rewards left to make are the Collector's Edition (and up) tier bookplates and the Portrait tier custom original commissions. I'll be getting started on those as soon as we've finished the book layout.
Until next time, gang!
