Hi folks! Can you believe this Kickstarter is over two years old?
We thought we'd take a few minutes today to give you an update on the remaining stretch goals that everyone at $10+ will be getting in digital form once they're done. There's just a few of them left, and since each one was starting from scratch there's been a lot of time & effort involved in moving them along. We're seeing progress across the board.
We'll also talk a bit about the other Fate stuff going on in Hat-landia. Let's get to it!
Stretches...! Makin' Progress, The Stretch-meister!
Shadow of the Century is entering alpha play-testing this May. We're taking playtester applications right now on our website — learn more here: http://www.evilhat.com/home/shadow-of-the-century/
Do: Fate of the Flying Temple: The final round of editing is happening now. We expect to send it to layout (by Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple creator Daniel Solis) by the end of May.
Young Centurions: Our alpha playtest feedback is in. The team has reviewed it and has their action-list of things to address. We're hoping to be able to move this one along to layout and art acquisition sometime in the next few months.
Dresden Files Accelerated: We began development in 2014 as promised, with it steadily ramping up from there. Our second playtest should come right on the heels of Shadow of the Century's. The first playtest revealed that our ideas were sound but our implementation was way off. This next round has a much more "playbook" style approach that we think will get the ideas across better. Our beta playtest will tell us if we're right!
Meanwhile, Elsewhere in Evil Hat's Fate-o-sphere...
These things aren't part of your rewards package, but they are related to the game line this Kickstarter made possible, so we wanted to share.
Our Patreon campaign has been steadily churning out great, varied settings & mechanics in our Fate Worlds of Adventure line. We've knocked 8 of them out so far and have another 14 on the way. You can grab our already-released ones as pay-what-you-want items on DriveThruRPG as well as a select few in paperback at retailers or the Evil Hat webstore. Patrons of our Patreon campaign get early access to the drafts, and more depending on their level of commitment.
The Fate-Core-powered Atomic Robo RPG is up for an Origins Award this year as Best RPG. Available now & everywhere! To celebrate the nomination we've knocked 10% off of its price on the Evil Hat webstore. We've also got a Majestic 12 supplement in the works as we speak. Our goal is to have editing and art done and ready for layout by the end of May.
War of Ashes: Fate of Agaptus is in proofing and indexing now. We're aiming to get this sent to the printer by the end of May. Brace yourself for the rise of nasty, lethal, grimmsical cuteness!
Other projects wait in the wings, but aren't yet ready to see the light of day. If you haven't already, make sure to sign up for our mailing list on the front page of evilhat.com to stay in touch with the latest from the Hat.
Thanks again for your support!
