We can all wait
I want it to be playtested, rule checked, spell checked and double checked! :)
And passed to Miranda, when all she has is just this project :)
I just want the game to be as perfect as possible.
So a few months delay, no problem.
Stickers / book plates signed by Sean in Gencon would be a great idea. On the other hand... I can easily bring my own sticker/piece of paper and get his signature, then place it in my box.
Thanks for keeping us up to date.
@Ravenpenny: We aren't ready to commit to a specific plan, but we are definitely paying attention and want to do something special for backers who were getting signed material.
Rich Spainhour: That's a pretty cool idea, I'll let Phil know. Not something I could say for sure, but definitely an option. -HS
13th Age RPG got around the printing schedule preventing author signatures problem by printing bookplates. I received my hardback, then I received a high-quality full-color 4" x 4" sticker signed by the main authors & artists, which I then affixed to the endpages of the book.
Maybe send Sean to GenCon with a bunch of stickers he can sign and hand out, so people can affix them themselves, once their box sets arrive?
I won't lie, I'm a bit bummed we won't be able to get Sean to sign copies. I bought an extra copy for that express reason. Is there a way you can just ship it to him and have him sign it and then ship it to us? Or is that too much?
Is that a rock mite on the left? If so it's pretty amazing to have a Dennis Loubet Cardboard Hero of something I originally made up for my own games. Very cool.
You guys are doing great work and delays/schedule conflicts happen. Thanks for making this game a reality!
