Hey every one of your great fans, well another week is on its way to being done and we are in the final leg of waiting for Kickstarter to release its funds. As of right now it looks like everyone has been charged their backing and we are just now in a hold until Kickstarter finalizes everything.

While we wait, Jennifer P. and I have been hard at work on new adventures. She has just turned in the second Side Track adventure book, with six more wonderful adventures. In the meantime I have just completed an adventure book as well, The Sea Witch. This is a series of linked adventures that will allow your four characters to progress up to around 5th level. Six linked adventures, all fun and exciting, so be ready for the dangers that wait.

One of the bottle necks to getting adventure books out is the cover art. Poor Beatrice is working as hard as she can. I have her chained to her drawing desk as we speak, and once and a while I wave a cookie in front of her for motivation. Still she can only get so much art done. Too help out I have hired another artist to work on covers. Vlad is a great talent and I am sure he will turn in some great cover art.

We also need some new writers, but so far I have been having a heck of a time getting anyone on board. If you know of anyone that likes to write, enjoys 5e D&D and wants to try their hand at some adventure building, have them drop me a line, we are hiring. That goes for you great fans as well, Avalon is always happy to get fans to write stuff, and get paid for doing it. Some of our best games came from fans just like you.

So it seems that most of you want the upcoming adventure books in waves. The next question then is, do you want all the books in a series at one time within a wave, or spread them out between two or more waves?

An example is the Child of Destiny series of adventure books. This is a seven book series. Would you rather have all of a series at one time within a wave of adventure books? Or have us split them up, say three in one wave and then four in another wave, over even smaller, say two in each wave. Most adventure books series run two or three books, but the Child of Destiny series is a bit longer at seven books. What do you think? 

OK, we should be sending out your email with the link to your game very soon. If you have an email you would rather use then the one supplied by Kickstarter, it would be best to let me know this week. Just drop me an email at…

That's it for now, have a great week; don’t hold your breath too long, the game is almost here.

      I'd also prefer each adventure group of books to be available together, though I appreciate this may make things more difficult - with a probable greater waiting time - for any longer series', like the Child of Destiny one. Wouldn't want to stop you thinking of such longer story-arc sets though.

      In same wave is better for me

      Definitely release all books in a series together.
      I know this isn't your intention but doing it the other way feels manipulative to me.

      I think the entire series should released together. It just sounds and feels neater that way.

      All books in a line should be released together

      I vote for releasing all books in the same story in a single wave. We live in the age of binge watching, and I don't see why binge playing would be any different. I want to experience the story whenever I have time until it's done, without having to wait for the next part to come out and play something else while I wait.

      Personally I would prefer for all the linked stories to be in the same wave. I'm looking forward to digging into this system.
