A Very Dungeon World New Year
Happy holidays everyone!
Just before Christmas we received all 2,000 Dungeon World softcovers—literally a ton of Dungeon World! Here's a photo to give you and idea of the scale and look of the book.
Before you get too excited, we're still waiting on the printed copies of the backer supplements, but those should arrive any day now.
Once the backer supplements arrive we'll start sending softcover orders.
The hardcovers are actually running ahead of schedule! The printer is expecting to send us sample copies on Friday. They'll take a few days to arrive. Then we'll sign off on everything and send final payment. Once that's finished they'll send us the rest of the hardcovers. When the hardcovers arrive we'll have a massive packing party and start sending out DW in earnest.
So what does all this mean? Backers within the US and Canada can expect to see their copies by the end of January! International shipping is a bit harder to predict, but international orders will hit the mail at the same time.
The Barbarian Playtest
While we wait for the books to arrive we've been busy with the barbarian. After a lot of experimentation (some of which you saw in our Google+ posts) we've put together something that we really like, and hopefully you will too!
The class still isn't complete. We need to add a few more advanced moves, and we haven't played it as much as we'd like. So, if you play the barbarian, share your thoughts on the forums or the Dungeon World Tavern.
