Production Update #2
I was just reminded by a backer that you guys are due an update, so let’s get to it! I’ll probably be sending out the backer surveys next week, as this week I am trying to focus on convention preparations. The goblins are heading to Carnage, in Killington Vermont this weekend. So lucky fans will get to play the exclusive Jamaica scenario from this Kickstarter, Chicken Merry Hawk Deh Near. We’ll also have our Golden Goblin Fireside Invitational game, where we’ll be running another Caribbean themed scenario, A Man to Purgatory, A Woman To Hell.
Tales of the Caribbean
One scenarios is through initial editorial review and onto formal editing.
One scenario is back from rewrites and onto formal editing.
Three scenarios are in re-writes, with deadlines soon approaching. We expect all of these back before the end of the month. So far all of the authors in re-writes have been really excited by the editorial direction. They are dead seat on rising to the challenge of turning good scenarios into great scenario.
Three scenarios are being written, and deadlines have been issued. All final illustrations for Chicken Merry Hawk Deh Near are in house.
Art assignments have been issued for Toil in the Fields and we already have approved sketches. We should have inked final illustrations art for this scenario in house very soon.
Dread Shadows in Paradise
The first handful of stories have been submitted to the editors for formal review. It is likely that this book will be released far ahead either gaming book, although physical copies won't be be shipped until Tales of the Caribbean is being mailed out.
We have negotiated cover art for this book, and we are very pleased to welcome Canadian artist Ian MacLean into the goblin horde! The most amazing thing was that Ian and I played Call of Cthulhu together at Necronomicon, and his illustration is horrible close to something that happened during that scenario. He originally posted a black and white version of this on Shoggoth.net, which immediately ending my search for a cover for Dread Shadows in Paradise almost before it began. While we won’t do formal cover design until we have a final author line up, we can share his haunting piece.
Okay, so once again that's about it now. Be on the lookout for backer surveys, and another update in a couple of weeks.
Thanks everyone, as always, for your support!
