Incremental Playtest Rollout
I'm going to convert the early finished playtest chapters into PDFs and start rolling them out to the playtesters. I still need to finish up the Equipment chapter and Magic Items chapter, but you've waited long enough and I want to get more eyes on the materials that are ready for playtesting. Other than a brief outing on the evening of the 4th, this is a writing/working weekend for me to get a lot done on those last two chapters.
I'll be rolling out the completed documents over the next week, probably starting with the Classes document (which includes all five classes) and Spells document (which'll be a lot of stuff to read) this weekend. They won't be pretty in terms of layout—probably no art, and no actual layout, because I want them in your hands instead of waiting even longer. The final book will be pretty, the playtest documents will be functional.
FYI, current rough word counts for the playtest documents:
Combat Basics 4,500
Advanced Combat 7,500
If you backed at a level that gets you playtest materials*, please make sure your email address with Kickstarter is accurate so the notifications for the playtest document downloads actually reach you. And add drivethrustuff.com to your spam filter's "allowed" section so the notification email doesn't get marked as spam.
Thanks for your patience.
