Core Rulebook Preview...Round 2!
Thank you for your comments, questions and proofing notes on the first preview we released last week. We knew you all would catch a few mistakes, but you all put in over 700 notes for us to process. A few of them were doubles—we quickly learned there was an error in the ToC—but so many were original notes about how we could make the book better. THANK YOU!
In fact...you gave us such great feedback, we decided to delay printing the book by a week. We talked with our printer on Monday and they were fine with us delivering the book next week, giving us time to address the notes you gave us. Again, thank you!
Now that we’ve made all those changes, we’d like to give you one more chance to look for errors, typos, and problems in the text. We’ve been working on this book for more than ten months (long before the Kickstarter started), and we’re so proud of how everything came together. But we know that one more pass from you all can make it even stronger.
In a few minutes, you’ll get an email from Backerkit with a link to download the 7th Sea Core Rulebook Preview v2. The file has 304 pages of awesome, including the new “in-character” map we’re including in Chapter 2 and a preview of the map that’s going to go on the endpaper in the front of the book. I can't wait to see what you all think of it.
If you don’t get an email, don’t fret. We’ve already uploaded the file to Backerkit and it should be available to you on your Backerkit digital downloads page at this link:
Feedback on Preview #2
We’re excited to get backer feedback on this new preview. As before… please don’t email or post in the comments with your feedback. With over 11,000 backers, that would overwhelm our ability to deal with emails and comments. Instead give us feedback via this link by June 5th at 12:00pm Eastern:
Here are a few known errors that you don’t need to report (because we already know about them):
- Page XX references haven’t been updated
- The map on page 21 is not final (corrections and sizing needed)
- The PDF Table of Contents has not been finalized
We did, however, add an index to this draft, along with the missing art from the short story and a huge update to the language sections (especially in Eisen and Montaigne). We’ve also adjusted the Action Sequence Example to correct an error and spotlight the mechanics for guns a bit more.
Oh, and about a thousand other changes. Those too. :)
