      Quick question: are there going to be any updates posted here for those of us who don't use Twitter? If nothing else, will we at least know when it goes to the printer and when they start getting shipped out? I'm excited about this game, but wish I knew a little more about the progress and time frame.

      Fantastic! Can't wait!

      James Bragle,
      I've been posting smaller updates to twitter to avoid blowing up everyone's e-mail boxes. You can find me there as @joehills. Last night's draft is available at: and the book is on track to be printed and shipping by mid-late October.

    4. Creator James B on September 5, 2012

      Are there any updates? We're coming up on a month since this project funded, and other than, "Thanks for the money!" there hasn't been much in the way of updates. Is there another website that updates are being posted at?

      Thanks! I'm looking forward to playing this!

      when and where can i get the high res pdf. i bought a book, but am tired of waiting for it.

    6. Creator Art Frederick on August 8, 2012

      The game uses the same dice as DnD. d4 d6 d8 d10 d12 d% and d20. Other than that and printer paper to print out a character sheet I don't think you have to have anything else.

    7. Creator Austin Boeddeker on August 6, 2012

      crap i just realized something. i own no dice, by the way what dice do we need, in fact what do we need to play the game outside of owning the book?

    8. Creator Art Frederick on August 5, 2012

      @rorikdude12 Shortly after the kickstarter completes and they give us the contact information for donators.

    9. Creator rorikdude12 on August 5, 2012

      So when do we get the first printing pdfs?

    10. Creator Austin Boeddeker on August 3, 2012

      @Will Jones
      We do have an online shop, and we will likely have a few extra posters after the kickstarter to sell out of the shop.

    15. Creator Gabriel Crowley on August 1, 2012

      Just pledged! Your getting so close. Good Luck!

    16. Creator Will Jones on August 1, 2012

      Anyone know if they're going to set up an online store once funding's over, because I really want that poster.

      Watched Guude's video and didn't even realize this was going on till then. Hope the goal is reached.

    20. Creator Aaron Isaacs on July 31, 2012

      Keep it up! I'm sure you'll make it!

    21. Creator Joe Hills on July 29, 2012

      @rorikdude12, Sure it will! We just got back from showing the game to a bunch of cool youtube friends at PlayOnCon, and I expect we'll see a bump from that! We're already half way, and we have two more weeks!

    22. Creator rorikdude12 on July 28, 2012

      I'm sad this won't reach funding...

    23. Creator Aaron Isaacs on July 18, 2012

      I am so excited to start playing this with my friends!

    24. Creator Art Frederick on July 18, 2012

      We're almost to the 1.5k mark, and I want to make you some "thank you" art. Any suggestions on what I should draw?

    25. Creator Gabriel Edge on July 17, 2012

      I just grabbed the low-res from the website (before I pledged) and was enjoying the book greatly. This should be a lot of fun to play.

    26. Creator Alejandro on July 14, 2012

      Hi! Good luck with the project! I've seen the PDF and it looks fantastic! :D I hope people comment more here.
