Tactical Rock Incoming

Heelllloooo Dead Tree Fans!

sorry we are late, but Like we said on our Twitter and Facebook, we had a company meeting which ran really late and decided to postpone to today.


This week lots and lots of things ended up happening. Two more books are finished being written and set to undergo the editing phase in the next couple weeks. We finished lots and lots of vector line art as well (still have tons to go), finished colour tuning more of the posters for Ciderfest as well as got all our ducks in a row and for our vendors table at Ciderfest. Lots and Lots of merch!


All in all that is really the long and short of this past week. See you next weekend!

And be sure to check out our Facebook, Twitter and Patreon, word on the street is that we might be doing something cool with them.


Vectors Vectors Vectors!

This week had us getting back into the usual Grind. Livestreaming everyday and vectoring away all the items.

We’ve also been doing lots of writing, getting our Bestiary, Martial Arts guide and Game master’s guide prepped and ready to start formatting.

Other than that things have been pretty quiet. we’ve just been focusing on getting as much as we can done to display at Ponyville Ciderfest. So  all aboard the hype train!


Hey Dead Tree Fans! Sorry we haven’t been doing a whole lot of livestreaming this week. L9OBL pulled a 30hr livestream-athon on some about 5 pots of coffee and completely burned himself out, so he’s been colour tuning all out Poster Prints  in anticipation for Ponyville Ciderfest as a way to unwind. Our other artists have been hard at work doing Vector art but they don’t really livestream that much.

So yeah, that’s pretty much what happened, lots of different art and stuff. Also, we are aware we haven’t updated the WIP and sneak peak folders this month, We just haven’t gotten around to it yet being a little over worked, don’t worry it’ll get updated soon.


Also don’t forget to leave a comment, visit our Facebook, Twitter and Patreaon! It would mean a lot to us.

A Brand new Clock

that’s right DTS Fans, I have a new clock! so hopefully I will stop posting late blog posts!

Though this one will be a little short, This week, we’ve been Vectoring our items for the books, and hanging out at Bronycon, Yours truly spent the weekend locked in his office with a bowl of dogfood however… Other than that, not much has happened that really hasn’t been mentioned. So with that I’m going to get back to figuring out how to escape this office.


Till Next Week!

Locked in the Office, Send Help!

So most of DTS Is at BronyCon this weekend, and the Bastards locked me in my office. I was going to post about this earlier today, but they cut the router to my computer, I had to hack the Stream’s feed to get this Measly S.O.S. out on our website!

They left me with a pot of coffee and a bowl of dog food and I’m ALMOST out of coffee. so send coffee, and come hang out on picarto: HERE if you’re not at BronyCon.


If you are infact at bronycon, look for a giant Viking of a Man slinging crits in the back alley. tell him I need more coffee!

There’s also Our editor in chief, and Lead Game Dev as well so keep in eye out for a Pilot in a Stetson and a man with Hair taller then he is short!


But mostly send coffee!

Mondays? I hate Mondays!

Yeah yeah yeah, I’m Late again, I know. Unfortunately I spent the weekend learning the ins and outs of Adobe Illustrator. Why? Well because we have moved on to the second portion of our “12 step art guide to successfully taking over the universe!” I mean of doing all the art in our books.

That’s right Deadites… Dead Tree Fans… DTFs?… I Digress! That’s right! we’ve moved away from those horrid sketches you saw us… sketching on our Picarto and now we are vectoring all the line art for them. What does that mean? well simply it means we’ve come up with design ideas for the thousands of items that will be in our books and you get to watch us curse and swear as we hate our lives vectoring everything out. yay

Other than that, not too much happened last week, just art really.


See you next week (hopefully on time)

And Then I said, Linear Timelines, are you Crazy!?

Yeah I know we’re late with this week’s update. I have a long weekend off from my day job and it kinda messed with my perception of time. So here we are on MY Sunday.

For the most part, a whole lot of art got completed. I’ve been spending the last months or so sketching ideas for the thousands of items; weapons, armour, mods, crafting etc. and we are almost done. yay! In fact the entire list Should be completed by the next blog post. After that we will be turning these sketches into full coloured vectors to be put into the Books. The best part is that you can watch me and the other artists sketch up these ideas. And in a week, vector those sketches on our Picarto stream HERE

Can’t say too much else has happened. Just more art, writing and editing really.

Also, while we won’t have anything official, a couple of our members are going to bronycon to hang out and hand out business cards. So keep an eye out for a group of shady characters slinging epic adventures in the back alley…. I mean Games room.
