April 6th - State Of The Union

Hey gang,

I wanted to drop you a quick update on where we're at. It's good news, I promise!

With your feedback from our forums at Strike to Stun, Facebook and here on Kickstarter, the book is now complete. All the I's are dotted, T's crossed, edits done, cuts made, clarity added and improvements galore. It's been a phenomenal amount of work - far more than we had anticipated - but we couldn't have gotten there without your help. Thank you so much for being an engaged and interactive community!

So here's where we're at: this weekend, Adam Rose (our lead playtester) and I are going to finish up our table of contents. Once this happens, we'll repackage everything for Milena using InDesign, and have her prepare the Early Access Illustrated v2 PDF file for distribution the following week. We'll update our backers - both on Kickstarter and CrowdOx - with where to download. While that's happening, I will be sending off the PDF to Lulu.com (our printer) to have a few galley proofs made for myself and Tanner (roughly a week to get one made and in-hand). This is to ensure that everything meets our criteria and that the colors are correct for the cover art. I anticipate that it will take us a few days to do a quick read and verify all is in place. Once Tanner gives me the go-ahead, I will then pass off the PDF to our shipment team. We have contracted one of our internal play testers (Mike 'The Boss' Bossaller) and a group of trusted individuals to plug in orders for us. The shipments will go out in phases over a period of 3-4 weeks, starting first with domestic orders in North America, followed by international shipments.

So there you have it! Thanks once more for your patience. It's been a wild ride, and I am super pumped to show you what five years of playtesting can produce: the world's first Kickstarter-funded Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay loveletter/heartbreaker/OSR/retroclone/whatever you want to deem it as.

Oh, I almost forgot - you want to see more artwork? Because this is what you get when you want to see more artwork: MORE ARTWORK!

      The illustrated PDF will be ready in the next 24 hours. Shoring up a few things with CrowdOx right now for distribution.

      Any news on when the PDF will be going out?

    3. Daniel Fox Creator on April 10

      As a clarification, the PDF will go out to everyone while we wait for our galley proofs from the printer. Once we okay the proofs, we will begin shipping. In addition we will be working on a "living index" on our home website, and free supplemental print-outs. Finally, we will also be preparing our files for POD at DriveThruRPG a week or so after we ship.

      Hey gang, everything is now over to layout to prepare the PDF to release. I will have an update here in the next week when it's ready to pass out. Keep your eyes peeled here on Kickstarter and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/grimandperilous/
