Greetings Dead Tree Fans!
It’s that wonderful time again. No not timely Dev Blog update time…. well yes, but as wonderful as a timely Dev Blog update is, that is NOT what we are referring to. We, of course are referring to Book Completion time! Yaaaaayyyyy.
As we discussed in our BABSCon Panel, Our goal was to have the Locked Safe completed and sent to Indiegogo/Patreon Peeps by the end of April, and on April 30th we did just that!
At 678 pages and two *Inches* thick. our system compendium is a mighty display of arboreous genocide. With which you can use the contents of to wage your *OWN* Genocide in the Equestrian Wasteland.
The Locked Safe features over 1000 Perks and Traits combined, 800+ Items, 200+ spells, as well as Crafting, Shamanism, chemistry, Alchemy, Mods, and Cybernetics! All compiled into one epic book of unforgiving wasteland madness!
The Locked Safe is currently undergoing final review, as well as being inputted on by our patrons and Indiegogo customers, but is otherwise done and will be submitted to the printer in the following days.
In regards to the Public release, our release date is June 1st 2019. So the beginning of next month.
For non-locked safe news, here is everything *else* which has happened over the last week.
We have been doing a lot of our post convention paperwork (taxes and whatnot), as well as just taking a little breathing time for ourselves here and there. L9OBL has also done some colour tuning on the Hoofticuffs and the Overmare’s guide to adjust them for future printing. You can find the updated files in the download links emailed to you. We have also done a lot of the preparatory work for our FINAL core book. The Guilded Cage: Fallout Equestria PnP Bestiary. Choosing the layout, background, fonts etc. There is still some minor work to be done on Stating monsters, and we have hired the incredibly Skilled GiantMosquito, from Dr. Adorable’s Ask-Along Blog to do all of the art! Though overall we are aiming to have the Guilded Cage: Fallout Equestria PnP Bestiary, publicly released for BronyCon 2019!
Lastly, we have heard your woes for the past year or so about the Diary of a Mary Sue, and while we *did* initially decide to change out the cursive font *after* all six books are done. L9OBL has been messing around with the book alongside our Patrons on our Discord to re-format the book into a more legible font. *Something something* “Insert comment about Millenials here” *Something something* “Dumb bunch of cursive killing 30 year olds” *Something Something* “I can’t seem to understand that millennials aren’t children” *Something something*
So keep an eye out for when that ends up dropping. No guarantees on an expected date, but it *should* be no later than August. At which point our old cursive version will no longer be available (once supplies run out).
That was everything that’s happened this past week. 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!
