Long Time No See: Amaranthology?
Hey all. It's been a while.
I wanted to touch base. I know Amaranthology's not in hands. It was rocky to begin with. I only received about half the expected drafts, but I do have those. So, I want to level, and present a plan for getting these out to you.
I probably can't realistically get physicals out to everyone. The printing and the shipping right now would kick my ass pretty hard. I just can't make it happen feasibly. But as an alternative, I'm thinking of offering it as mobi, epub, whatever other formats you'd like. And I could put it up as an "at cost" print option, so if you want to order physical books, you could get them for the price I could order them from. This would be particularly beneficial if you want a copy outside the United States, since our Print on Demand partner prints in different places all over the world. And print on demand for this would really only be a couple of dollars.
I'm debating on options for filling it up. I can offer a short Amaranthine game content supplement as part of the package, or I can try to get a couple more stories into the collection. Again, budgeting's restrictive, so I have to be careful. If you have thoughts, let me know.
In other news, I'm actually looking to do a second edition of Amaranthine, using different rules. For simplicity's sake, I'm thinking Fate or Fate Accelerated. Might this be a thing you'd be interested in?
There you go. Just trying to get this wrapped, since it's been outstanding for a while.
