      Last update in July following review of first proof print copy, but no news since. Could we please have an update regarding the status of the print copies?

      Hi, any news on the status for printed copies or when we should expect the survey to come out for addresses?

      @Matthew - We're getting the file files sorted and then we'll be ordering a proof through DTRPG. As soon as we've got a good copy, we'll get everything out to the backers.

      Update coming later this week. Life outside of running this project has been... hectic, to say the least. No bad news on the horizon, though, which is always good to be able to say.

      @Rowdy - Quite a bit! We've go art and layout working right now and are in the process of putting together a revamped productions schedule. We should have a new update soon.

      Many thanks for the holiday update. Way too many Kickstarters fail to update even monthly. Looking forward to a great game!

      @Ernest - Sadly, the projected date for completion, even on the reward tiers, is January 2016. I'll be posting a more comprehensive update tomorrow, but I'm afraid a holiday delivery is a long shot.

      I hate to be a bother, but was hoping to get my copy by the end of November for my lady's b-day. Is that reasonable, or should I start shopping? How about Christmas?

      Yes, an update would be much appreciated. It's been three months since the project funded, and we've heard not so much as a peep. Please?

      @Steve - As of now, the interior is planned to be purely Black & White. We're looking into the cost of spot color, and if we can afford it in this budget, we'll go that route.

      Also, a playbook sample is coming soon. Just going through final edits on it now. =)

      Hi Tracy- when you say its black and white interior, does that mean we'll lose the splashes of red in the sample art? Or is it effectively tri-colour- black and white and red? Thx.

    38. Rowdy Scarlett on March 4, 2015

      Less than $400 to go in 5 days. We need to hit some stretch goals!

      @Steve - Added some FAQs to the page to address your questions. Also, the final length of the book will be about 22,000 words, which with art, will make for a book of about 116 or so pages at 6x9.

    42. Ben Morgan on February 24, 2015

      ...And backed. I had an absolute blast (too soon?) playing this at Dreamation. Elsa, thank you very very much for fixing my primary problem with Apocalypse World mechanics by introducing opposed die rolls for PvP actions. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

      Some further questions for Elsa & Tracy- you mention 17,000 words are completed, which is roughly 40-60 pages long. How long and in what format do you expect the final book to be?

      2 more questions then: What playbooks are you thinking of?

      And the print copy- will that be soft cover or hard cover? Colour or Black & White?

      Apologies- missed that. I'm a big fan of various Apocalypse World engine games, so might be worth making a bigger deal out of it (that engine seems to be the new hawtness in gaming).

      I've mentioned this project over at the RPG Kickstarter News FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/430556803645272/

      @Steve: Powered by the Apocalypse in the description is a reference to the system. It's based on Apocalypse World by Vincent Baker. Variants of the same system are used for Dungeon World and Monsterhearts.

      Thank you for the preview and video- I've got a good idea of the setting and issues. But what is the system going to be like? That doesnt seem to have been mentioned anywhere?
