We Haven’t Slept Yet

So technically it’s still Friday for us.

Greetings Dead Tree Fans! How are all of you this fine Friday evening. Oh you thought we were joking? Well we weren’t. Technically if you counted all the all nighters we have been spending it’s still Wednesday for us, but we figured it was a stretch so we’re counting from the last day we woke up on, which was Friday. How have we pulled a 72 hour work fest? Coffee, lots and lots of coffee. Pretty much all we’ve drank, oh and chocolate covered coffee bean, those too. That and most of us are used to stupid work schedules so this kinda sleep dep is common for us. That’s right Dead Tree Fans! Delivering an epic product to you is more important than our health! Which come 10 years from now when we’re old and full of chronic health problems realize how horrid of an idea that was, but Screw future us, future us are a bunch of punks who don’t know nuthin. Bunch of weak old farts. Though that’s not what we are here to talk about, all of you fine folks are here to learn about what we accomplished in the last week. Whelp, a lot actually. Formatting has taken leaps and bounds, we have been working tirelessly to recoup all the art that got corrupted and lost at the end of August, and we have been doing prep work for Nightmare Nights Dallas, which we officially have a panel at, as well as a Table in their table top games room! We will update you on times and locations when we get them, but yeah, be excited! We are headed to Dallas, as much as L9OBL is resenting the idea. Silly Canuck claims he will melt.  Not much else to talk about so we will leave it at that and decide if we need sleep after our next cup of coffee.

How Can It Be Tuesday?

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

We’ve been hard at work wrapping things up and dealing with a system crash that wiped out close to a third of our item vectors. We will let you know if this affects our intended release date, but currently we don’t know and are still hoping to keep on schedule despite the set back.

other than that we have been busy buried in formatting and other prep work. So much so that we even lost track of what day of the week it was.  busy with formatting, editing, double checking and trying to recoup lost art.

That was just about everything that happened last week. Until next week Dead Tree Fans!

Paperwork Shmaperwork

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

This week, not a whole lot of super exciting fun stuff was done. Mostly paperwork and other boring stuff. We also started livestreaming again. We didn’t do it today, and there won’t be any  tomorrow as we are setting up a rather massive update for our Patreon Subscribers. We are very aware that our Patreon duties have slipped while we have been putting our all into our release, and for that we sorta apologize. We apologize for letting our responsibilities slip, not for putting our all into our release. If you have issues with us working to bring you the best gaming experience we can, we don’t care.

Other than rolling our d20s to fight against the horde of paperwork we must do, we also gained much ground against the format monster of book building. Which makes us happy as it brings us closer to our release.

That was about it for our weekly battles this week, don’t forget to follow us on:

Post Con Depression

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

We would like to welcome all of our new Fans and Followers and then bring you our post BronyCon update!

Long story short; it was a lot of fun and we had a killer presentation.

BronyCon was rather relaxed for us compared to most other conventions as we only had a panel to do and were not signed up for anything else.  We did run some games in the Table Top Games room, but we were not the scheduled Fallout Equestria Game. It was actually a friend of a friend of ours, and we didn’t want to ruin his fun or hard work, so we were respectively less active in the table top room. Table Top Games are supposed to be fun for everyone after all.

Our panel was a rousing success in our opinion. It turns out that the lighting for the projector screens was rather bad and we found out afterwards that our slideshow was rather impossible to see. But other than that the presentation went quite well and we got to meet a bunch of our wonderful fanbase, and even introduce a lot of people to the wonderful world of Table Top. Which is always a blast for us.

Other than that, we just enjoyed the convention, hung out with friends and met plenty of new friends!

 

In the last two weeks preceding BronyCon we have been hard at work prepping things for our December release. Formatting, art, double checks and triple checks. extra writing, catching the things that slipped through the cracks. The usual stuff that will most likely go on for the next couple months.

Until next week Dead Tree Fans! Don’t forget to leave a comment, check out our Patreon, and to follow us on Twitter and Facebook!

Channelling our inner Megumin

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

This week a variety of things happened, most notable is that a joint PR stunt between ourselves and our good friends the Post Apocalyptic Broadcasting Studio, exploded in our faces. You can find our official statements on our respective Facebooks and Twitters, as we aren’t in the business of beating a dead horse. Dead post apocalyptic ponies on the other hoof…..

Other than that, this week was a flurry of events, with BronyCon preparations, paperwork, formatting and final book prep, art, and a few other minor things.

As is usual for our convention appearances, you can expect there to be no Dev Blog updates the BronyCon Weekens (next week) and the weekend after. Only other things to say are that things are progressing smoothly and we are well on track for our December Release.

Also, for those who are not aware, our Pre-Order Store is up and running. You can find the link in the menu. Be sure to check it out, aswell as our Facebook, Twitter, and Patreon! Don’t forget to leave a comment either!

 

Until next time Dead Tree Fans!

Brownie Con!

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

First and formost we are OFFICIALLY announcing that we will be hosting a panel at BRONY CON 2017 in August at the Baltimore Convention Centre. We still have no idea as to when our panel will be, or in what room as Brony Con still hasn’t released a schedule. But we will let you know as soon as we find out…. which will hopefully be soon. This Panel comes with a LOT of updates, information and announcements. So be sure to check us out!

Secondly, we would like to announce that our Pre-Order Store is now live! You can find that HERE: https://deadtree-studios.squarespace.com.  Keep in mind though, this is a pre order store, everything will be shipping out in about December 2017 AFTER we mail out our Indiegogo campaign perks. We will also be charging shipping costs at a later date. We are doing this to ensure the most accurate shipping cost possible and to not overcharge you for shipping. Being a pre-order store, most of the designs and art are subject to change, so don’t be surprised if you see things change as we get closer to December.

Lastly we have everything ELSE which happened this week. Aside from working on the Pre-order store, as well as surveys to help us organize all of our Indiegogo backer information. We have prepped one book for final pass through and is now getting ready to be signed off as “ready for print”. Once our editor and chief has deemed the book printable, we will have it exported to our printer’s final specifications and then backed up 12 times before sending it off to the printer for them to do their checks. Other things which happened this week were: more formatting of books and lists, art has started its final stage and should hopefully be done soon enough, and Brony Con Prep.

Also, on a side note the Pre-order store may take a little bit to get linked into our website as our Webmaster has a couple things on his plate. But the store itself is live and you can find it HERE: https://deadtree-studios.squarespace.com

Until next week Dead Tree Fans!

The Great Trotconian Fire 2017 We will rebuild…

If by rebuild you mean CURB-STOMPING BOTTLECAP CANYON!

Greetings Dead Tree Fans! First off, welcome to all the new fans and friends we met at TrotCon! It was an absolute blast seeing new and old faces alike! All in all we would say the convention was quite good. There were a few hiccups at con start, but nothing unmanageable. We ran some games all convention long in the table top games room….. Correction, we completely invaded the Table top Games room. We had a massive turn out resulting in us running two and three games at a time…. which kind filled up the entire games room. We even had a line up going of people waiting and hoping to play…. so that was actually pretty awesome. While we feel bad about taking over the room in it’s entirety a couple times, we aren’t exactly surprised.

We had a vendor’s table as well, which did rather well in our opinion, despite the vendor’s hall not opening until about 7 pm on the Friday.

Our panel was a rather big success, while attendance was less than usual, TrotCon was a smaller convention than what we usually go to. Our sources also tell us that our turn out was better than a large portion of mane hall events. Which made us happy. So yeah, big success, even with L9OBL being hungover (we laughed at his misery quite extensively).

Our good friend Versal also premiered a song he wrote for us during his set at TrotCon’s concert, called Valley of Dead Trees. Which was pretty awesome! You can find a recording of his set here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ht79I5VWsOo

and the studio version of Valley of Dead Trees here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXBV9tCtyDA

Sunday there was a fire alarm because someone burned popcorn. We originally thought someone was playing Versal’s mix tape. Was a lot of fun, not gonna lie.

Last big bit of news for TrotCon was that We participated in the Battle for Bottlecap Canyon on Sunday, repping our raider pride of course, and with the help of the other raiders present, beat those wimpy steel rangers and silly stable dwellers into the DIRT! We ended the game with 2/3 of the total bottle cap count, some knick knacks and a skull. It was great. So thank you to all the raiders who helped make this victory possible, and thank you to our opponents for being so fun to curb stomp.

Cocky-ness aside, seriously, it was a lot of fun. Thank you all for playing with us!

 

With that aside we move on to what happened in this last week. Which is a LOT.  Firstly we all got home safely, unpacked, and have gotten back into the normal swing of things. We also got accepted for a panel at BronyCon 2017 in August! So we will see you all at BronyCon next month. But we will discuss that more in detail next Sunday. Books are moving along well and are being formatted quicker than expected. HOWEVER, and this is really the biggest thing, BackerKit, has Informed us that they do not believe that they can give us and our project the backing and quality experience they pride themselves on, due to our backer count being so low. As such, BackerKit has decided to refund our money and withdraw. We are actually very appreciative that BackerKit would rather refund us, instead of risk doing a less than stellar job, and are in no ways angry about this decision. However, this means that we will not be able to use BackerKit’s Pre-Order store for those who had wanted to have add-ons, or had missed the Indigogo campaign. Just before writing this up we made an announcement on our Indiegogo campaign informing our backers about what this entails. Mainly, this means a 3 month delay in our release, as we work out details for those who paid extra, with the hopes of purchasing add-ons with credit, as well as setting up our own store on our website for those that missed out, as we have had a lot of requests for using a pre-order store. You will be able to find more details on our Indiegogo press release HERE: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fallout-equestria-pnp-dead-tree-edition#/updates

While we aren’t very happy about the delay, we are still VERY excited to bring you all this fantastic project when it releases. We will let everyone know when things happen revolving around our Indiegogo, our webstore, and any other cool important happening as usual, through our Dev Blog.

With that we invite all of our new Dead Tree Fans to check out our:

we also encourage you all to leave a comment at the bottom, or on our Facebook, if the conventions prove anything, it’s that we love interacting with all of our fans!

With that said, until next week Dead Tree Fans!

Roll 20 Con 2017 Closing Statements

Boring title, we know.

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

Today bring a close to our Roll 20 Con activities for the year 2017 (don’t worry, we’ll be back next year).

Boy was it fun! We had lots of players filter in and out this year. More than last year for sure! On top of that, the usual weekly stuff happened. Boring things like formatting, art clean up, double checks etc. All the little things needed to get done for our book release, as well as prep work for Trotcon in a couple weeks! We are going to cut it there for now as there is LOTS to do! Until next week Dead Tree Fans!

ROLL 20 CON

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

We have a slew of announcements this week! The first is that we will be hosting a 24hr game for Roll 20 con! Which is happening Saturday June 24th at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT.  The rules for the game are the same as last year’s Roll 20 Con game

We will be using our alpha system rule. Characters are to be level 5 and you get 1300 caps to purchase whatever equipment you want. If you can afford it, you can have it.

You can sign up for the game, as well as find more in depth info on the game HERE: https://app.roll20.net/lfg/listing/47414/fallout-equestria-experience-remains

other than that, the big things that happened were the usual. We worked our asses off, formatting and doing art.

Also! Our Indiegogo campaign finished this week. We raised 3800$, which in all honesty we consider a fantastic success. We know it is no where near our initial goal but that goal was for our preferred printer. The money we did raise though will still allow us to get everything professionally printed with our backup printer. So we want to thank you all for your support! We absolutely ca NOT wait to share it all with you!

That’s everything for this week! See you around Dead Tree Fans!
