Progress Update

Posted by Fearlight Games (Creator)

Hello everyone,

We're sorry that we don't have anything fancy to show you, but we do have good news.

The core rulebook for Baker Street is done!   

So, why aren't we off to the printer and getting ready to ship? We want to, but we aren't finished with the Baker Street Casebook #1. Remember how we wanted to include all of those stretch goal cases in the core book? They are adding a lot of pages. With all of the stretch goal cases included, we're pushing it to more than 250 pages.   

What we plan to do at the end of the fulfillment of the Kickstarter is to split the core book and the casebook into separate published books. Those will become the publicly available copies of Baker Street and the Baker Street Casebook #1. PDF versions of these will be available through DriveThruRPG. Everyone here that gets PDF copies will get this version. Basically, we aren't going to produce a huge PDF of the combined books.  

Now, back to the Baker Street Casebook #1. Good progress has been made, but we have four more stretch goal cases to go through before we can put the finishing touches on everything and get it out to you.  

We thought that we would at least leave a list here so that everyone knows what we are working on and has an idea of how close we are. We'll be sure to update the list as things change.  

  • Baker Street Kickstarter Hardcover - 75%  
  • Baker Street Kickstarter Softcover - 75%  
  • Baker Street Softcover / PDF - Complete  
  • Baker Street Casebook #1 / PDF - 80%  
  • Baker Street: Sherlock by Gaslight / PDF - 50%  
  • Clue Card Pads - Complete  
  • Resolve Tokens - Printing  
  • Mastermind Screens - Printing  
  • Sherlock Dice - Complete  

Thanks for your support!

Just for fun, we were wondering who has been playing Baker Street with their gaming groups? We'd love to see some pics and hear more feedback. We spent a Saturday at a new local convention running some Baker Street and Artemis and had a blast. Be sure to like Fearlight Games on Facebook and follow along there as well!

      Any update - qwhat progress has been made in the last two weeks?
      75% complete is meaningless without some context on how long the remainder wil take....

      Oh, and if the PDF of the core book is done can we get that now so we can start playing, or at least familiarise ourselves with the mechanics!?

      Glad to hear it's almost done!

      What's the chances of this being a Yule gift?? :)
