So you may have seen it teased across Twitter and the image on the Kickstarter. Well now it's time to talk about it a little more!

Pretty much since Day one, folx have asked about Offset printing. With it being an artbook, many fans wanted a higher quality book. Something that you usually tend to get with the traditional route, and something I totally agree with. However, the initial budget and plan was around using Drive Thru RPG to keep risks and costs low.

So with the Kickstarter doing well, we can finally heed your call. At 600 backers we will have the numbers to do offset printing from...

Same cost to all backers but with improved quality! On top of that, I worked up something EXTRA smexy at the 100k tier. I'll throw more details out there after we've passed the 35k for some DRAGONS!

      No problem, I personally love to hear feedback. And I'm looking forward to the better quality myself!

      No offense taken. But this wasn't a random decision, we did the math and made the calls to make sure it works!

      Thanks for listening, and already almost there! This book and that art deserves smythe sewn bindings. Cannot wait to see this in person :)

      I don't want to be disrespectful, but I need to ask: are you sure about this? I guess better-quality printing is always welcome, but I wouldn't like you to take on more than you think you can handle. You have a very small team after all, and I'd value quality content much more than how the book looks.

      It's just I've seen small teams being buried by taking on too much commitments in their Kickstarters, to very poor results, that's all. I apologise in advance if I sound offensive, I only have the best intentions here.
