Congrats on the Ennie Nomination
Got mine and the GM character pack. Can't wait to run this at GenCon!
@Jargogle Thanks for that.
I've been trying to create a player's guide (of sorts) as the group I'll be running for in the fall has never played any iteration of the game. The main thing I'm trying to do is update the Quick Creation lists to include the material from the other pdf's (I'd rather not make new players look through multiple books for character options; it just slows things down too much). Unfortunately, the last version of Acrobat Pro I had was 9 (8 years old now) so I have to do everything through Word which is slow going.
@ Jargogle: thanks for sharing that, and for coming up with your own weapons!
Created these a while back (they were ready back in late April), but here are some detailed cheat sheets for NC2e. They cover the full game and so are more extensive than those in the Quickstart. Hope folks enjoy them.: http://www.mediafire.com/download/dpqi7cboo2k3cam/Ninja_Crusade_2e_Cheat_Sheets.pdf
Got my copy in sunny New Zealand today. Gorgeous!
Just received my physical copy, and it is /gorgeous/.
Over 2 weeks since, "The books should be out by the end of the week" and two and a half months since:
"@Duncan - Been saying April for a while, but it won't be on the 1st. :) More likely the end of the month, but I expect to have them in house in the next couple weeks and will certainly keep everyone up to date with how that all does."
I'll take that as a no.
So, have the books shipped? Has anyone received one?
Thanks for the update Eloy! Congratulations on the new addition to your family!
Thanks Eloy! All the best!
Did the books arrive on the 20th as expected or are we waiting another month?
@Andre - Always listen to your sensei. :-)
Hey Eloy -- I was just curious how things are going with the shipping (esp. international, as I'm Canadian). I know you're probably right in the middle of doing it now and the last thing you need is people bugging you about it... I'm just a little anxious for the manual to arrive so I can begin my ninja training, is all. My sensei told me that if I didn't stop banging on the temple gate and asking "is it here yet?" every morning, then he'd rip out my spleen and feed it to an Oni... I think he's bluffing, but I don't want to take any chances. Can you help me?
Last update was all about shipping and applies to all backers. If there's any delay for international backers I'll let you know, but it doesn't look like it so far.
Any word on when the international shipping will be going out?
@Duncan - Been saying April for a while, but it won't be on the 1st. :) More likely the end of the month, but I expect to have them in house in the next couple weeks and will certainly keep everyone up to date with how that all does.
Should we expect the print books this month?
Wow, quick response and great product !! Thanks !!
I've been enjoying reading the book but it's slow going as I'm not exactly young anymore and it strains my eyes to read continuous pages on a screen. I like the new system and can't wait for the other first ed. stuff to get a new treatment.
April for print books. So not long now!
How far away are we from the printed books?
Just downloaded my pdf copy today. Thank you all for letting me be part of the project. I can't wait to play my first game.
With the release of blade and soul yesterday I find myself even more excited to be getting this. My group is all trying out the game and getting into that proper mindset for what I'm planning on unleashing on them once the book is in my hands.
While I'm waiting I'm designing a short adventure using Wuxing Ninja Crusade to entertain them for the next several weekends and really build up the suspense. I took some of the sorcery rules from API 2nd ed and added them to one of my enemy ninja's to create a fairly nifty sorcerer they are gonna hate.
It's a shame I wont be able to bring over elements from API as easily to this new system but hopefully it will be easy enough to modify so I can have my cyber ninja's wreaking havoc again.
@Eloy. As many backers don't read the Comments, it may be worth doing a mini-update letting them know a draft is impending.
Should be coming in the next week or so. Very close!
Any update on the draft?
Well I'm glad all is going well!
That's fantastic news. :-)
Very soon, actually. Finishing up layout and whatnot.
Really looking forward to this game. Any chance the backers might be able to see a draft version soon?
Happy Holidays to everyone, for sure!
Merry Christmas all! I hope you are having a wonderful day!
@Duncan - Yes, most likely. Just gotten get through the corebook and those will likely be the first things converted, since they are pretty easy. :-)
I remember that there were some web enhancements for the game. The names elude me but one include quill-like powers; it was only a few page longs. Will any of that material be updated to the 2nd edition?
This system was designed to bring in the ninja action but it could work for AMP too with some work I bet. I think the toughest thing to port over would be the powers since each has its own use. But you tell me when you have it in hand and try it out. :)
Eloy how hard will it be to adapt Amp to use the Charka System?
Thanks to all the backers!
Awesome, thanks for the great work.
@ EdwardD: soon, yes. Looking at probably mid December.
I lucked out and came across this project in the final hours, will there be a draft version that we can look soon?
Kinda sad. We were only $256 from the next stretch goal. :(
Grats on the funding!
Any chances that the other first ed books could be offered as add-ons?
The GM Pack Tier gets you One of those. ;)
It's the FINAL HOURS for The Ninja Crusade 2nd Edition Kickstarter! I'm around to talk to or answer questions about the game until it officially ends at 2pm! https://hangouts.google.com/call/perd3mb6qrt4vkbm3ep6w5terua
In the last bit here I noticed there are two character packs in the addons. Is that what comes with the GM's tier or would I need to add those?
