Dinocalypse Now: Hell Comes to Hollywood!

Hey all,

Making good on another one of our promises, today we've released the Spirit of the Century/Dinocalypse Now tie-in adventure Hell Comes to Hollywood. It's a free download and you can grab it at DriveThruRPG (using the same login you created for DriveThruFiction):

Personally I'm very proud of this adventure. For one it's bigger than I originally expected -- clocking in at nearly 40 pages in Spirit of the Century's 6x9 page format. But Brian Engard, the author, and the rest of the team, really dug into the question not only of how to do a good tie-in, but also how to structure a good adventure scenario that suits the Spirit of the Century paradigm. 

Then add onto all that the stellar art that fellow backer Jayna Pavlin provided to the project as another component of her backing. If nothing else, you should check this adventure out to see what she did. 

EDIT: I neglected to mention when I first posted this that Dinocalypse Now is up on Amazon (and other places) -- if you've read the book and can spare a few moments to post a review, it'd be a big boost for us. Thanks!

In other news, yesterday I received (and approved) both the hardcover and softcover proofs of Dinocalypse Now.  Here's a peek...

      One thing that makes this Kickstarter so great is that I actually get fun stuff shortly after it ends. Thanks Fred.

      I had not considered doing that. If we did, it'd definitely be through DriveThru's POD program.

      Is there an option to get the adventure in print, like a POD at Drivetrhu?

      It's not a high priority for us to spend the extra money on getting someone to do a proper conversion of it. That said the layout is pretty basic; I'd expect a page by page "fan conversion" to work fairly well. I could be wrong.

      will "Hell Comes to Hollywood" be available in ePub format? It seems to be only available in pdf format and I do not trust my pdf to ePub converting skillz because I always get a feeling that something must have gone subtly awry (even when nothing bad had happened) , and that feeling could ruin my reeding experience sometimes

      Nah, we're gonna turn it into banana bread!

      Better eat that banana quick, before it goes bad!
