Hello Martians, it's Sam again giving you a rundown of the progress of both our production and development!

Printing Progress

Our printer is busy at work with the books, narrator's screen, and slipcases and I'm really excited to share some of those with you! Virginia, our publishing assistant who holds the John Carter of Mars project close to her heart and did such a valiant job of getting the final proofing and corrections done, thoroughly went through the samples. The quality is excellent, and we're looking forward to having the final books in a couple of weeks' time!

PDF Delivery

Final PDF delivery is on Monday! We're just getting the bookmarks, printer friendly versions, and form fillable character sheets finalized, and releasing on Monday means we can sort out any teething problems from Tuesday onward! Early internal previews of the printer friendly version is looking fantastic, I'm really pleased with it and hope you are too.

Supplements in Development

Hi, Virginia here, I'm overseeing the development of the Dotar Sojat, Prince of Helium, and Jeddak of Jeddak supplements and wanted to give you guys an update. Dotar Sojat is going into final drafts, I just have to review a couple of chapters and we're ready for writers to make revisions. Prince of Helium has most of the first drafts in, so I'm reviewing that at the moment. With Jeddak of Jeddaks I'm waiting on first drafts, and I'll review them after the Prince of Helium manuscript! We're on course for a summer 2019 release, with retail to follow on from that!

That's it from us, we'll see you Monday for PDF day!

      Hullo, folks,

      Like @Netobvious seems to be, I'm kind of disappointed that the GM...oops, sorry Narrator's Screen is Portrait rather than Landscape, the way the rest of the game books seem to be coming out.

      I'm curious why this was done.

      @Netobvious,

      But what Attributes would you be using for the incomparable one to fire the radium pistol at the brutes? :)

      (Something I've noticed, and I'm not sure it's my imagination or not, and I'm not about to do the math of it all, is that player characters have higher statistics than those of our Barsoomian heroes and idols. Correct me if I'm wrong...)

      Hullo, Sam, Virginia,

      Very fitting that your name is Virginia. Our favourite military man from Virginia would approve. :)

      Either Portrait or Landscape designs have their advantages and disadvantages. The Portrait, in particular, blocks the GMs face mostly from view by Players, which may cause the impression of a disembodied voice instead of a fellow Player on the other side.

      Having tried both styles (Savage Worlds and Pathfinder), I generally prefer portrait for a GM screen. Same information uses a lower table space, while providing better protection for encounter notes, etc.

      Interesting that the book(s) are landscape and the narrator's screen is portrait.

      And thank you, Modiphus, for the printer friendly version. You will have accolades heaped upon you for days

      Dejah Thoris has a Passion of 9 and an Empathy of 8, wow! She can definitely talk her way out of any predicament, except if captured by brutes, who are immune to passion and lack empathy.

      In a passionate fervor, Dejah fires her radium pistol splitting her foe's head between the eyes.

      Virginia of John Carter? ;-)

      Very very cool that her name is Virginia; John Carter would most definitely approve. Keep up the good work, folks!
