Apocalypse the Risen Campaign Setting Progress Check:
A grand hello from the Rusted Portal Games team. We know you are eager to keep up with the progress for Apocalypse the Risen Campaign Setting so let’s get right to it!
Editing: Fantastic editor Jennifer Povey has completed 10 chapters, the final files coming out looking crisp and clean. That leaves 3 chapters to go. 90% of the writing is complete for two of those chapters—Bestiary and Magic Items—with the last 10% simply final transitions and stories between rule section. The Bestiary is finalized at 22 creatures which are summarized below. We are really happy to be able to bring a great diversity of enemies to your table! And finally, the Multiverse chapter is awaiting a major contributed writing piece and finalizing the complexity of planar rules.
Shunned Demons: Angler (Wrath), Corrode (Envy), Dredge (Lust), Eyrachnid (Pride), Fire Urchin (Sloth), Shyft (Gluttony)
- You will have to wait for the Dread Tentacle (Greed) in Campaign Expansion I
Mutated Animals: Skunk Hound
Mutated Plants: Siren Pine, Corpse Flower
Ghosts: Apparition, Emote (x4), Poltergeist, Shade
Risen: Depraved, Devourer, Famished, Hungry, Ravenous
- And Risen Templates (Bloated, Decayed, Infected, Mutated x3)
Oh the humanity!
Layout: Award winning layout artist Simeon Cogswell has already started preliminary layout and page design. You will recognize elements in the layout stylings from the well-received Maverick spread we presented during the Kickstarter. Additionally, our stellar iconics artist Raven Mimura has offered his handmade metal work for use as design elements. Border and artisanal nail seen mounted with Enforcer iconic Argo. Keep an eye out for Raven's upcoming personal projects. The pieces are awesome!
Speaking of iconics, I’m so happy to introduce Mother, our Shepherd iconic. She’s seen here banishing a demon, from that demon's perspective. What a badass!
Printing: We believe we are still on track for the April start of printing schedule announced in December. Between comments and updates we will let you know of any major changes.
All said, we are churning out content as quickly as possible. Especially exciting for us has been the realization that we have so much more content for Apocalypse the Risen than could possibly be included in the first book. There we be a lot of supporting materials into the future, much of which is well designed and tested. We are really stoked and hope to spark that same excitement in our awesome backers.
Now, back to writing…
