Update #16

Make an offering to Poseidon

2 comments

As of this morning we have placed the order for the last of the backer rewards. Maps were sent out a few weeks ago. Print books were ordered over the past week. And I just now purchased a gentleman his skipper's cap.

They are now in the hands of whatever gods oversee interstate and international parcel shipping. It probably wouldn't hurt to sacrifice a goat to Poseidon. I suppose I'll eat some Jamaican food tonight, just in case.

Folks in North America and Europe _should_ receive their items in the next two weeks, and almost definitely before Christmas. For a few people far afield - Australia, South America, and such - it unfortunately might take until January. At this point, if you have any concerns, complaints, or compliments, please email them to ryanznock@gmail.com, because we won't be checking this Kickstarter for updates.

If you like the book, please visit EN World and check out the adventure paths and other products from E.N. Publishing. I would like to once again thank everyone for their support, involvement, and patience. I hope all of you find many opportunities to use these rules in your games, and that you and your friends will have great memories of high seas adventures.

Update #14

Materials update

We're close to having everything ready to send out. We're waiting on a proof of the color version of the book to make sure it prints properly, and I'm waiting for my post office to replenish its supply of mailing tubes so I can send out the rest of the posters. I wiped 'em out, apparently.

I suspect everything will be mailed out by the end of the next week: books, maps, and a hat.


Update #13 - For backers only

Digital copy of the book available

Update #12

A video trailer for Admiral o' the High Seas

Comment

We've whipped together a basic trailer for this book.  To be honest, the book is much prettier than the trailer!

You'll find the trailer on YouTube at the link below:

Ryan Nock, author of Admiral o' the High Seas and director of the ZEITGEIST adventure path, will run an adventure at Gen Con Indianapolis in August 2012 for all the contributors at this level. You are responsible for making your own way to Gen Con. We'll run up to three sessions for different groups, but we'd appreciate scheduling flexibility.

    The Admiral's Feast. A full-color copy of the book, a jaunty hat, two large poster maps of ships, a poster map of the ZEITGEIST world map, an invitation to game at Gen Con, we'll name a flagship after you, and we'll send it to you as a 3/16-inch thick foam-backed poster map. Sturdy and perfect to move around on a sprawling battlemap. Hell, they'll probably even float, if you're going to game in the pool.
