Handouts! (and a quick update about the trim issue)


Basic Moves and Playbooks in PDF

While I was kicking around this morning, I decided to hack together a couple of easy-to-print PDFs of the basic moves and playbooks.

You can download them here!

I'm not making that link super-public yet, but I wanted you all to have something to print out to run the game.

Update for Color Softcover Backers

How Are the Softcover Copies Getting Fixed? How Will You Know If My Copy Needs to be Replaced?

I don't honestly know just yet the answers to those questions, but I can promise that if your copy has the trim problem, it will be replaced. So far, I've only heard from backers whose copies have trim problems, which makes me think the entire print run was bad.

Please be patient while I get this sorted out. You'll either get a survey or email from me to find out if your copy was bad, or I may just replace them all. 

I am fairly confident that I won't have any news until after GenCon, August 22nd at the earliest.

Copies Arriving! (But Where Are the Page Numbers?!?)


I'm so excited to hear and see that copies are arriving!

In the wild!
In the wild!

And so disappointed to hear that some of the books aren't perfect!

Trim Issues - again!
Trim Issues - again!

If you're looking at your book and the bottom outside corner of the pages either doesn't have a page number, or doesn't have a complete page number, please hold tight! I've already contacted DriveThruRPG about the issue, but I don't expect them to be able to resolve anything until after GenCon (after August 22).

Rest assured: If your book has this problem, it will be replaced. This is an unacceptable error, and one that I made sure wouldn't happen by having a solid proof copy in hand before ordering.

Update on DriveThru PDFs


A very astute backer emailed me this morning to point out that he hadn't received a copy of his PDF in DriveThru-- it turns out I made a mistake and didn't send them out to the "signed copy" backers. That should be fixed now. My apologies; yesterday was a very long (but exciting) day at the day job, and I was just excited to get those PDFs out to you all.

Also, it's hard for me to be sure, but I think the PDF is coming to you as a discount code from DriveThruRPG, rather than being added directly to your library. This, of course, makes total sense, since your Kickstarter email and your DriveThru email might be different. However, it does mean you'll need to click the link in that email, which will add the PDF to your shopping cart at DriveThru at the low-low price of $0.

All right, that's it for the moment. I'll keep you all updated as things keep moving along!

PDFs Are Out on DriveThru!


Your PDFs are available on DriveThruRPG! 

If you backed for any level starting at $9 and up, or if you pre-ordered, you should have received an email about it. If you did not, please do the following:

  • Login to your DriveThruRPG account and check your library-- it might already be there.
  • If it's not there, contact me via Kickstarter to let me know. If you pre-ordered, contact support on Backerkit for help.

That makes two places where you can download your PDF copy of the book: Backerkit's digital rewards, and DriveThruRPG. 

The third and final place will be set up in about a week-- it'll be a link to Dropbox and Google Drive sent to you by email. 

I'm trying to get everything wrapped up before next week's GenCon fun but the trim issues on the hardcover and now the black and white copies have stymied that a little bit. There will be copies of the softcover book for sale at GenCon in the IGDN booth (Booth #2347).

I understand some of those color softcovers are already shipping. I would love to see them as they arrive!
