      I feel really sorry for the 4 guys who pledged $100. I'm not sure you'll live long enough to see the *second* product of this game line.

      Hey guys, Sorry for the delay of updates and such. We have been doing a bit of project shuffling on our end. But we have it sorted out and are still moving forward.

      On the issue of the website not working; we actually let our subscription to the service that was providing the website lapse. And we are looking into more cost effective and user friendly option. Sorry for the scare!

      We will be posting up an update here soon. Again sorry for the delay.

      Hmmm, the web site attached to this project (gamesmithsllc.com) has been 'suspended'. Not a good sign in my way of thinking.

      Hello? Anyone here?

    8. Mike Brodu on November 3, 2013

      So, how's it looking for a Dec 2013 release?

    9. Scott Gladstein on October 1, 2013

      Any updates on this?

      Awesome! We will be posting up an update here pretty quickly. So stay tuned!

    11. Craig Johnston on June 12, 2013

      Watching Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger right now has me really glad I backed this and super keen to get my hands on it. :D

    12. Mike Brodu on February 27, 2013

      Any chance to see the vote for the additional creatures soon?

    13. Mike Brodu on January 14, 2013

      Congratulations!
      Now, a whole year to wait... I hope you'll keep us regularly updated on progress.

    14. Dominique Dzioba on January 13, 2013

      Glad to fund you guys, you have got to try for the N. R. G. system again. I really REALLY wanted to see that thing published.

      Almost hit that next stretch too! A big thanks to go out to all of our backers!

      Yeah we would love to have those maps as well! We love maps!

      @Michael: We know how it goes. But we are still glad to have you on board! thanks for your support!

    17. Danny on January 9, 2013

      I really want us to get to 3k so I can get that map add-on as well!

      sadly had to bring my pledge level back down due to paydays, but still glad to give what i can and glad this one made and hope we get to see Saga of Dragon Star come back and be able to back that again as well!

    19. Mike Brodu on January 7, 2013

      It's not looking like the numbers are going to explode in the next few days. But I'd like the option to get the color map poster. Do you think it'd be doable as an add-on?

    20. Mike Brodu on December 29, 2012

      Well, no free hardcover for everyone.

    21. Missing avatar

      Game Smiths LLC (deleted) Creator on December 24, 2012

      That's a good point! We have to hit the target and *remain* at that level or higher. Thanks for pointing that out!

    22. Mike Brodu on December 24, 2012

      Plus, it invites bad behavior, like someone pledging $4K before the deadline just to get the free hardcover, then later change his pledge down to a much lower pledge. I don't think you thought this offer through.

    23. Mike Brodu on December 24, 2012

      That latest update offer sounds like a risk-free sensational empty promise. Raising $3300+ in 3 days, given the pace of this KS? That's like almost tripling the total amount raised so far, in a period of time when people are out celebrating and not checking internet as often as usual... That's just plain unrealistic. The announcement of a new stretch goal for a hardcover at 10K would have felt a lot better without this.

      Game Smiths LLC (deleted) Creator on December 23, 2012

      @Mike: If we can hit a high-enough mark, we might be able to offer our backers only a special, limited-edition hardcover. Possibly... We'll see how things look & how much time is left after we get through our current goals.

      @Gary: Pretty exciting to have you onboard--thanks for your support!

    25. Mike Brodu on December 23, 2012

      Softcover print copy is fine, but I was really hoping for a hardcover option as a stretch goal.

      I love Ray Harryhausen and I love Savage Worlds. How could I not support this? I'm in for a copy of the book!

      Hi Jeren! You bet--there are still additional stretch goals that will be revealed once we get through the current ones! Thanks for asking!

      Zenlike on December 23, 2012

      It was mentioned that a Pathfinder version of this was a possibility. Any new information on that? I'm not seeing anything listed in the stretch goals.

    29. Mike Brodu on December 22, 2012

      Thanks for the quick reply! :)
      Another question: delivery date for the PDF is december next year. Is it going to be the same date for the print version, or later? Thanks!

      Game Smiths LLC (deleted) Creator on December 22, 2012

      As Chronicle City is now our printing partner, our physical copies will be black & white, though our PDFs can still be in color. Not sure about Sinbad PDF yet, though a stretch for that might be a possibility. Another possibility for a stretch is a full-color fold-up map of the Sinbad campaign!

    31. Mike Brodu on December 21, 2012

      Based on the interior illos we've seen so far, I assume the book will be black and white inside? But the map was in color. Could you please confirm whether the interior pages are in color or black/white? Thanks!

      And if it's B&W, do you think a stretch goal could be made to turn the book into full color?

      Also @Epic: And don't think we've forgotten about your offer to help edit some of this stuff--we have noted your skills and will definitely be in touch with you later about giving us a hand!

      And Amanda, if you have some links or reference materials for any of these beasts, please share them with us! They sound very fascinating. Not to spoil anything, but we'll have some stretch goals posted up soon, and a couple of the early ones will be to extend the number of critters in our bestiary. So if you can get us some references, and we hit those goals, we can get Nick to start some illustrations! :)

      Thanks again, all! Please keep the questions coming!

      Game Smiths LLC (deleted) Creator on December 21, 2012

      @Amanda: We will definitely look into these creatures. Great stuff! There is a lot of material to pull from in the various regions in our setting. So I am sure some will make it in!

      @Epic: Awesome! And best of luck with your entry!

    34. Amanda "Hyena" Johnson on December 20, 2012

      So are there going to be any Zu/Anzu/Imdugud in the bestiary?
      Or other Sumerian/Babylonian/Mesopotamian creatures?
      Like the Lamassu, Labbu (Lion-serpent), Bašmu (Horned winged venomous two-legged snake), Kulullû (Fish-men), Kusarikku (Bull-men), Scorpion men, Uridimmu (Human headed Lion men) and others?

      I've always pictured the Imdugud as a cross of two-legs and head of a wild cat like a caracal with body, wings and tail from a bird of prey. In myth, it's known for snatching/stealing shiny stuff or scrolls. So it can be something to fight or for a PC to own as a pet.

      I blogged about it tonight as well. (Was finishing my RPG Superstar item last night.)

      Back on topic! Thanks to everyone who has backed us up! It looks like this project will come together!

      @Haphazard & Danny: Hats off to you! thanks for spreading the good word! Every set of eyes that we get onto this page(and pledges)helps!

      We still have a ways to go until this thing wraps, so keep your eyes on it! We will be unleashing the stretch goals here sharpish!

    39. Danny on December 18, 2012

      I and the Goblin Beat crew are with you! We can't get enough Savage Worlds and hope to see the physical book become a reality!

      @game smiths - you are far too kind. i really just lucked in to a kick ass job. it's all of the artisan dice backers that really deserve the credit. without their nearly fanatical support i wouldn't be able to make a living hand crafting dice. oh and you can put me down for a book, either print on demand or otherwise.

    41. R.S.Tilton (EpicRPGBlog) on December 18, 2012

      EpicRPGBlog is onboard. I always loved the Harryhausen movies growing up...

      Also, a bit off topic... But has anyone here seen that BBC show, Merlin? I rather like it. Even though it takes place a couple centuries before this setting, it's good inspiration for anyone who wants to explore the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms! And the way mythology is represented in the show is a bit how we have this campaign imagined.

      Other sources for inspiration:

      1. Aladdin (the Disney films, as well as the TV series)
      2. 13th Warrior
      3. The Harryhausen Sinbad trilogy (naturally)
      4. Clash of the Titans (the original; took place way, way, way before this era, but it's no less inspiring for a sword-and-sorcery setting such as this)

      Does anyone else have any good recommendations...? We'd love to hear them!

      @Charlie: First of all, let me say that your your KS project for your dice was inspiring (and the look of those dice--amazing!). And second, yes--we hope to be able to add the physical books on as stretch goals, provided we can afford to do so. But if we don't get to a level where that becomes possible, at the very least we'll be able to later provide the books as print-on-demand at very reasonable prices, since those will require no up-front fees. And thanks for backing us!

    44. Charlie Brumfield on December 17, 2012

      In for a C note. If yall over fund is there a chance of getting an actual book as well?
