Shipping underway! Make sure your survey is in!

If you haven't filled out your survey yet, you should do so as soon as possible so we can get your books shipped out!

As of this morning, 96 of the approximately 150 pre-ordered books have been shipped (mostly domestic orders), and Art will be meeting up with me on Saturday to help me mop up any orders I don't get to tonight and tomorrow, so worst case, your books will be in the mail Monday morning, but likely sooner.

I can't express enough how much I appreciate you patience with us. This process has been full of surprises (not all good), but we've learned a ton and are confident that we're delivering a solid product we can be proud of.

Keep adventuring!

Here's your high-res .pdf, the book is ready to print!

Late October Update!

Greetings, everyone! 

The book is currently very near print, and the files are undergoing a final examination by a professional proofreader. You guys spent good money on this project, and we want to make sure you get something both fun and meticulously made.

We're currently hoping to have the files finalized and uploaded for you in high definition, and those same files off to our printer by the early next week, and those books in the mail as soon as possible after that. 

Thanks for your patience, and if you want to stay up to date on our progress on the book day-to-day, the best thing is to follow me on Twitter at, where I post links to our book layout livestreams. 

Keep adventuring!

We made it! Thanks! Have a backers-only video!
