      Hopefully this one still has people working on it. Some kind of comment would be nice to hear.

    2. Creator aziesel on January 15

      Art Critic here, still waiting on Art Critic level perks. IIRC the artist involved didn't flake, but feel free to correct me on that.

    3. Creator Tucker on January 7

      Coming up on eight months with nary a peep. Shame to have this KS abandoned by *two* creators. It's one of the books I was really looking forward to seeing.

    4. Creator Aaron Roudabush on October 27

      Any updates at all?

    5. Creator Michael Ostrokol on October 22

      Any news?

    6. Creator Steven Warble on October 14

      Almost at the two year mark. This could have been a neat addition to the 13th age family. Sad, but not angry.

    7. Creator Steven Warble on September 24, 2014

      Getting scary and looking like this may never complete. Sad.

      Any news?

    9. Creator Fun Tyrant on January 18, 2014

      Sorry about that Tucker, looks like the holidays got the best of us. I've just posted an update with a quick look at our mechanics work.

    10. Creator Tucker on January 15, 2014

      Hi! Now that the holidays are over, how's the book going?

    11. Creator neongrey on September 23, 2013

      The text of the book is finished and Darren has been on top of his work for Nightfall; there are plans for another company to step in and help out. The mechanics writer taking the money and running was a huge setback the current owner wasn't prepared to deal with, and as soon as everything's ironed out there will be a public statement outlining exactly what this means for backers and the project.

    12. Creator Paul Davis on September 20, 2013

      The website has been abandoned (in fact you can get it if you really want).

      I'd pretty much regard this KS as abandoned. No replies from owner, dropped website, writer is in limbo. Wish the owner was professional enough to let us know either way.

      If anyone knows the writer, perhaps they could send the document (unfinished as it is) to one of us for distribution (I'll gladly do it) - may even polish it off a little if needed. (see my profile to connect with me)

    13. Creator neongrey on September 3, 2013

      Well, last I heard from the writer is that his part's done (finished, complete) until needed edits get handed back-- wish I knew why there wasn't any update to that effect since it's pretty big news for the ks, especially one in such a state as this. I know edits do take a while but it'd be nice to hear something. Dunno where it's at mechanically but as far as I know that's moving along too.

    14. Creator aziesel on August 19, 2013

      I've been trying to contact Fun Tyrant through Kickstarter for a couple weeks now. Has anyone been able to receive a response from them? Any info is appreciated, thanks.

    15. Creator Rob_K on May 31, 2013

      With 13th Age core book at the printer, what is the status on Nightfall?

    16. Creator Marc Hertogh on May 9, 2013

      Any word on the progress?

    17. Creator ack on January 17, 2013

      So, has the latest news of 13th Age's release slipping to April affected us? when can we expect to hear something from you? Hope all is well.

    18. Creator Bill "Wystan" C. on January 15, 2013

      So, Any Updates?

    19. Creator Martin Dickson on October 26, 2012

      Grats your jocular majesty! :)

    20. Creator Jon T. McCarty II on October 26, 2012

      Broke that $7,000 mark! Congrats :D

    21. Creator Fun Tyrant on October 26, 2012

      We are still hoping to have it ready for Halloween!

    22. Creator Jon T. McCarty II on October 25, 2012

      Is there still some hope that the introductory adventure will be ready before Halloween? I was getting ready to promote the project on some social networks and wanted to mention the adventure but didn't want to mislead people if that was no longer looking like a realistic target for said adventure.

    23. Creator Martin Dickson on October 23, 2012

      The Tepenator?
      Or Impalertron 9000? :)

      Seriously though, I will have to find a use for a mecha-maniacal vampire. Oh, now there's a thought; a small army of pint-sized mechanical blood extraction drones that could be sent out to collect on behalf of a mechanically minded vampire lord.

      I'm thinking that even if I don't end up using the Nightfall material exactly as presented it's going to offer a lot of cool inspiration for a plethora of dark and twisted ideas.

    24. Creator Bill "Wystan" C. on October 23, 2012

      Actually TurboDracula was 99% of the reason that I almost cancelled my backing.

    25. Creator Bill "Wystan" C. on October 23, 2012

      I agree that Turbodracula is not the best choice as it is too real world tied. I would select a name that suggests the same link without the ties that Dracula has to reality.

      Emperor Tepes
      The Impaler
      Master of the Night

    26. Creator Fun Tyrant on October 20, 2012

      Hi Marc.

      TURBODRACULA is an iconic name for our realmlord, but in the spirit of 13th Age's awesome sidebars about making the game your own, there will of course be other options.

    27. Creator Marc Hertogh on October 19, 2012

      Are you guys married to the name Turbodracula? It just sounds silly to me and makes me think rocky horror, not horror.

    28. Creator Fun Tyrant on October 6, 2012


      We temporarily removed 13th Age from the description as a result of discussions with Pelgrane. They're still working out the details of how third-party support works, and have been really great throughout this process. I appreciate the feedback!

    29. Creator Earthorn on October 6, 2012

      Nightfall looks great, can't wait to have it in hand! The setting seems very interesting, and the races even more so.

      I did notice you removed "13th Age" from your description (searching those words on Kickstarter being how I found your project). I may have still stumbled across it on forums, browsing games Kickstarters or searching roleplaying ones, but found the change curious.

    30. Creator Fun Tyrant on October 5, 2012

      Michael, we are not entirely sure what the occultist will be doing, as the occultist is a forthcoming class in 13 true ways, with close ties to the Diabolist.

      We are working hard on our Warlock class for our Nightfall, which probably has more in common with Willow than with Giles. Dark Pacts, Addictive Magic, Physical Tolls for spells. It should fit in nicely.

    31. Creator Michael W. Mattei on October 5, 2012

      So what archetype does the occultist fill. Does it support an adventurer scholar type? Because a Gothic horror setting seems to be a great place for Giles type character.

    32. Creator Iain MacKenzie on October 3, 2012

      You're welcome! I'd already pledged $98, what's another dollar? :)

    33. Creator Fun Tyrant on October 3, 2012

      Thanks, Iain! Woooooo we're past the first marker!

    34. Creator Iain MacKenzie on October 3, 2012

      And we've made it.

    35. Creator Martin Dickson on October 3, 2012

      So close...

      TURBODRACULA Love Hotel

    37. Creator Fun Tyrant on September 27, 2012

      From what we have been told about the Occultist there shouldn't be too much overlap. Sam Phillips does in fact have a portfolio, you can check it out here.

    38. Creator Iain MacKenzie on September 27, 2012

      Mmmm, Warlocks and Vampires and Werewolves? Awesome! I worry a bit that your Warlock might overlap with the 13th Age Occultist that got into the 13 True Ways expansion book, will there be communication with the authors of 13th Age in that regard at all?

      I'm also quite curious to know if Sam Phillips has a website or portfolio as I'm quite tempted to go for the Art Critic pledge but would like to see more of what the art style is like! :)

    39. Creator RSIxidor on September 27, 2012

      Warlock? SOLD!

    40. Creator Fun Tyrant on September 27, 2012

      Right now we have:

      - A dark race of ancient amphibians who retreated to the sea when the sun first rose.
      - An alien species of insectoids who resemble moths, with an equally alien sense of morality.
      - Unnaturally-incarnated metal golems who wander without purpose, some finding life, others wishing for death.

      Classes include the classic werewolf and vampire (which you can multiclass into to gain their powers!), a warlock who has made a pact with one of the dark forces, and several variants and expansions on the existing 13th Age fantasy archetypes.

    41. Creator RSIxidor on September 27, 2012

      So ... what classes and races?
