Dames of Asstoria Campaign End

Thank you everyone who backed and supported Dames of Asstoria these last 60 days! With your help we successfully raised 12,530$!  Unlocking a fourth stretch goal. We will most likely go a little radio silent over the next week or so as we organize and crunch numbers, after which we will release a financial break down for our expenditures, and where you can expect to see money going. 

Everyone with playtest rewards and with Fallout Equestria digital copies can find the links emailed to them. Most of everyone should have already received their links in their email, those who backed Dames in the last 5 or so hours will be getting them sent out in the next 20 minutes. If you don’t see any emails please check your spam folder. If you still can not find the emails please contact us at info.deadtree@gmail.com with your contribution number and we’ll be happy to get everything sorted. For those with playtester rewards we look forward to seeing you in the playtester server where we post the playtest rules and host games. Currently we have version 0.912 released which is focusing on character creation and we hope to soon release the character advancement system for everyone to play around with.

Those with the Chimera and Lore relavant characters will be getting instructions related to those rewards emailed to them within the next week. 

We are also planning on offering upgrades and add ons, though we are using our storefront to manage our pledges, as well as deliver rewards. This will give us a few benefits including a much better shipping price, lower than what we have on our campaign page, as well as giving everyone a chance to update shipping and automated tracking. It will take us roughly a month or two to make sure everyone is properly imported and everything is functioning as intended, but we’ll let everyone know as soon as we are set up. For those wondering why we are not using a pledge manager like Backer kit. Simply it comes down to value proposition. We absolutely adore Backer Kit and fully planned on using them if we had more backer than we were comfortable with managing. Currently the number of backers is not beyond our capabilities or comfort level so we have opted to do our backer management in house, as it makes more sense for us at this stage.

Lastly we have a dev blog over at  http://projectdeadtree.com/site/ which we tend to use for most of our updates and information dump. When things are busy and we are mad at work on a game we tend to update it weekly, and slow down between projects. most of our news on Dames of Asstoria will be updated their, however big importantant announcements will still also be updated through Indiegogo. In addition to Dames of Asstoria we are working on releasing a free NPC book for Fallout Equestria, as well as an Adventure module. No hard release date on either at this moment but we are hoping to have both done by Christmas. 

That’s everything for now. Thank you once again for all your support! We look forward to all of the adventures that await in the land of Asstoria. Do you have what it takes to become a Dame? Find out soon!

Too Lazy for a witty Title

Hey Dead Tree Fans

Short update, mostly to show we havent been nerfed by the rona.

Mostly working hard at getting the adventure module done. The Maps for said Module are like 98% done and will start exporting like this week.

We havent forgotten about the NPC book, we’ve just been putting it aside so we don’t have to look at character sheets anymore. It’ll come, even if we forgo the book format. It’s…. a LOT of NPCs. like 200 I want to guess? maybe more. so uhh yeah. Burn out on that front, give us time.

We have a patreon poll if you’re a part of the Patreon. Vote and tell us what kind of Discord server emojis you guys want. https://www.patreon.com/posts/36969205

Uhhhh we’re also working on another Race expansion to be released with the Adventure module.

And finally working our asses off on Dames stuff. Lots of cool things comming in the next few months on that front so be hype.

That’s everything for now… see you guys next time L9 remembers to do this between his death march work. Until Next time.

Feeling Disturbed

Because we’re down with the sickness

What? Pandemic jokes in this time of crisis? How uncooth! Why couldn’t Dead Tree have quarantined their sick sense of humour in this time of crisis? -Also Dead Tree

Greetings Dead Tree Fans, we are here with so more updates for you about the on goings and outgoings. First and foremost we here are all pretty much ok. A couple of us have fallen sick but so far nothing requiring a hospital. We already work remotely so things haven’t slowed down much, and as such we are happy to announce that the Magic Expansion is going to be released this week. No final day *just yet* as we are doing final checks and rereads but it WILL be out by the weekend.

Outside of that we are also working on an adventure module for Fallout Equestria. This will most likely be the only other Fallout Equestria related release we make before we fully switch and commit to Dames of Asstoria. This isn’t 100%, there may be other content we release while we work on the adventure module but no promises.

That’s it for now Dead Tree Fans. Stay safe, wash your hands as it gives you a +20 to your disease resistance and keep an eye out for that awesome Magical goodness. Also I suggest investing in polearms as they will allow you to stab those who cough on you from proper social distancing… distances.

 

Day 69 of Quarantine

The furniture don’t suspect that I’m not one of them. All is going according to plan.

Greetings Dead Tree Fans! Hope you are all doing well and washing your hands! Things have been, like the broken record says, hectic. Most of us had been working and being busy with our day jobs, but with the latest…. happening of 2020 we’ve thankfully had enough of some… CDC mandated time off to churn through the Advanced Magic Expansion. So that WILL be releasing quite soon.

We also have moved forward with the physical CDs, however due to the current COVID-19 Epidemic, those are currently on hold at the manufacturer. No current ETA on when they will arrive.

We have also received the updated proof for the Book set box which you can see here.

The manufacturer for them is no longer shut down due to Covid-19 so we will most likely be ordering a batch of them in. But there is still no telling when they will arrive or if mail service will still be operational when they get here.

Minifigures *were* done but L9OBL’s dog opened the room they were in and walked all over them so we still need to take stock of which ones need to be reprinted.

Other physical items like the box set box are currently being reconsidered. But no solid word on that yet. Though if we are remembering correctly, that box is really the only physical item left.

That’s it for now hope you are all doing well, and that you’re practising good hygiene. Remember to wash your hands, clean your phone, avoid touching your face and instead of stabbing people who get too close and/or cough on you we suggest you instead cut them with a pole axe, or halberd, as it will help you maintain proper social distancing.

CDeez Updates

Hah Gotem!

Greetings Dead Tree Fans! Been a while. Unfortunately we’ve been super busy IRL and haven’t been able to update the dev blog as well as we would like. So let’s dive right into things.

Firstly the CD and digital packs. We have been hard at work getting all the little extras done to finalize the CD and the digital packs. While the core books have been done, little things like the world map, character sheets, and other goodies were still being made. Welp those are all done now and we’ve updated everyone with a Digital pack. We are doing a final final once over and check for the CDs as those can’t really be updated and then once that is done we will get the CDs made. We are hoping proofing doesn’t take too long and that everything can be all said and done by the end of March.

For those with physical Map boards, physical minis and the other goodies coming with the Patreon/Box sets, Minis are all vapour bathed and done. Map boards and GM Blinds are printed. We just need to design and finish the boxes that everything will go in. That is being put on hold until we are finished with the Slip cases for the Book Sets. The proof came in however it was rather unsatisfactory in colour and a little too small so we are needing to get a new, adjusted proof printed and examined. If the new proof meets our standards then we are hoping to have slip cases mailed out early/mid March.

The Advanced Magic expansion is also being worked on, albeit slowly. There is currently no ETA on its release as we are still working on the manuscript.

Lastly we are also working steadfastly on Dames of Asstoria and Zen is putting together a focus group to help us narrow down the most optimal Character creation method in order to give players the level of flexibility a monster girl game deserves while keeping it intuitive and easy. If that is something you’d be interested in please join our discord for more information!

That’s everything for now. Until next week… or month…. or…Until next update Dead Tree Fans! Be sure to leave a comment, check out our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Discord as well as our Patreon, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for our livestreamed game shenanigans!  And as usual, be careful, it’s a wasteland out there!

Ho Ho Holy Shit

It’s a dev blog update! I thought these went extinct?!

Sorry to disappoint you Dead Tree Fans, but real life is just hectic. But now on to the news!

So the big things that have happened over the month of December are:

Kirins have been balanced and formatted. Currently we are working on drawing all the art for them, while the editing team gives the expansion one more once over.

Additionally we are holding s vote to decide on the next thing we work on after Kirins are released. A mechanics expansion, a new race, or an adventure path.

Vote HERE

Secondly we will be doing a boxing week sale! Everything store wide in our online store will be 10% off from December 26th until December 31st.

Other than that we have been working on the box art for the CDs as well as working on vapour bathing the minifigs and finishing up colour tuning and inspecting proofs for the boxes for the book sets.

That’s everything for now. Until next week Dead Tree Fans! Be sure to leave a comment, check out our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Discord as well as our Patreon, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for our livestreamed game shenanigans!  And as usual, be careful, it’s a wasteland out there!

Mapping the conquest

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

Lots of exciting things have happened since our last blog post! The biggest is that we moved our E-Commerce away from squarespace and overhauled it! No more waiting for L9OBL to email you access to your entire digital pack! Now it arrives directly in your inbox! Plus you can now use credit cards, apple pay, and things that AREN’T Pay Pal.

You can find new shiny upgraded online store at:

https://shop.projectdeadtree.com/

We are also in the middle of a store wide sale! By using the discount codes below you can get up to 25% off select Items from now until November 30th. Use:

SINGLEWEAPONSTYLE
For 25% off of non-bundled physical Books and the GM Blind.

STABLE10101
For 20% off of any digital items including Digital Packs and expansions.

Or

MINISTRYOFIMAGE
For 15% off of any book bundle.

 

Other fun things which happened are:

Our 3rd wave of racial expansion voting has concluded! Kirins have declared victory and will be the next expansion released! So keep an eye out for those fire-y mutes!

Minifigs have finished printing, and have been cleaned. They will be vapour bathed in the coming weeks.

The Proof for the Map board has also arrived! It will undergo some colour tuning and then we will order stock for those purchased. No ETA on those, as turn around time from the printer is slow and if we get super picky with the colour it might take a while.

We are also working on adding the digital file of the map to Digital packs, but that will happen after we’ve organised it into a standard resolution for printing. Most likely 11×17.

There have also been requests for us to add a printable version of the back of the GM blind to the digital pack and that will most likely happen when we get around to it, as we need to re format the info into an 8.5×11 format.

Lastly we have plans to update our Quick Start Guide and offer it for free on our store page so that it is more easily accessible.

That’s everything for now. Until next week Dead Tree Fans! Be sure to leave a comment, check out our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Discord as well as our Patreon, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for our livestreamed game shenanigans!  And as usual, be careful, it’s a wasteland out there!

Stop The Bats

They’re big, They’re sexy, and sit down when they pee. They turned your game into a total disaster!

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

We are happy to announce the official release date for the Bat pony expansion will be Spoopy day 2019! That’s right Oct 31st 2019, at like midnight. So those of you who haven’t decided on a costume for that Halloween party will have like 18 whole hours to get a bat pony made. The remaining majority of you who, like us at DTS, are too awkward for halloween parties, will have something to look forward to for your halloween game.

Other than that we have been working on minifigs and the map board and whatnot.

That’s everything for now. See you at Ciderfest. Until next week Dead Tree Fans! Be sure to leave a comment, check out our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Discord as well as our Patreon, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for our livestreamed game shenanigans! Now grab your dice and EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, only you can prevent the recent string of Mango thefts from coming to your
door.
