Trotting Along

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

Not as much has happened this week as some of you may have hoped. Our game master’s guide is still undergoing it’s post format edit and review. Other than that we have been working on Item art for our system compendium, which, you can usually watch on our Picarto. Additionally, Travelling Pony Museum and Fiaura the Tank girl have been selling our Wasteland Survival Guide and Diary of  a Mary Sue at Trotcon over the weekend. From our understanding they have been selling quite quickly.


That’s the short and long of everything that’s happened this week. See you all next week!

Weeks, Days? What’s The Difference?

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

Firstly, we are well aware that this Deve Blog is a little over due. For full clarity we don’t have any decent excuses, we were busy and forgot.

So to cover everything that has happened since our last Dev Blog, Our Game master’s guide is done formatting and currently going through its post-format editing. at which point it will get another quick review from the formatting team, then get sent of to get it’s index and Glossary made. We’re hoping to have our Game Master’s guide sent to the printer, and Patreon/Indiegogo customers before the beginning of August.

Hoofticuffs: our martial arts guide is currently undergoing formatting, with the intent to be done in August. The Compendium is still having it’s art completed and is on schedule for a release in December as Art is the only thing remaining.

Additionally, DTS is revving up to attend Gen Con from August 2 to August 5 2018. we will be running a game Called Project Dead Tree on Friday August 3rd at 1:00 PM, at Omni : McClellan Hall : 1–5. So if you’re going to GenCon come find us!

That’s been pretty much everything that’s happened these past couple weeks. Don’t forget to like, subscribe, annoy us on Discord, Comment, Buy our merch and all that other self promotion stuff we hardly ever talk about! See you all next week!


Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

This week’s Dev Blog post comes late with a good excuse! Our internet was down for the entire day! It’s back now, so don’t worry, we have re-learned how to act civilized and are no-longer having cage matches with sporks over the sacred god of fire.

As for what we accomplished last week, a fair amount.  The Game Master’s guide has made significant progress and should be on the editor’s desk for it’s post format edit by the end of this month. Major things that still need to be done are some stylization edits, which shouldn’t take to long.

In addition, we would like to inform you that there won’t be a Dev Blog next week, as we are all attending Biscayne’s Wedding, as we promised to cater his and his fiancée’s wedding with a mountain of tacos for their tireless work editing these books for us. (Come work for DTS, we pay you in Tacos!)

Until Next Time Dead Tree Fans! Be sure to come find us on discord and leave a comment and all that Jazz!

Stable Updates

Greetings Dead Tree Fans! This week brings a variety of updates! The most notable being that our Game Master’s Guide has a new Cover Design! With the “Great Mishaps of 2017” We had a need to rewrite a chunk of our books, including our Game Master’s guide. With that re-write came a new narrative thematic, and though we kept the same title as before, we decided that the old cover was no longer a proper fit for our new narrative. While the design itself isn’t 100% finalized and may see some tweaks between now and the final release of the book, those with the appropriate Patreon tiers will be able to see the current version in the Sneak peak folders.

The Game Master’s guide has the majority of it’s formatting done, and should be on schedule for a release in the next month or two.

Additionally, our Compendium has undergone it’s final major edits and format adjustments and is currently having its Index and Glossary being written up. After that, all that will be left is art.

That’s currently everything that has happened this week in the excitingly boring lives of DTS. Until Next week Dead Tree Fans!


Title Tatle

Good evening Dead Tree Fans!

As our broken record of an announcement machine will tell you, things have been quite busy this past week. The biggest thing that’s happened is that our compendium is undergoing its post-formatting editing and our Game Master’s guide is about half-way through the formatting process. Both of those should be done and on to the next step in about a week or two.

That’s it for this week, just a bunch of boring formatting and editing… oh and art as usual.

Until Next Week Dead Tree Fans!

Locked in a Safe

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

Appologies on the delays, we have been a little buried in our work as we finished formatting our system compendium.

Now this doesnt mean that the system compendium is done, or close to being released. What it means is that all the formatting for the text and the layout of all the pages is complete. The next step is to have the editing team comb over the book a multitude of times looking for errors and mistakes. Once that is done the formatting team will pass over everything again and make sure that everything is good to go.

The last bit of work is all the art. As most of you are aware, we had a software malfunction back in september that resulted in the loss of all of our work, essentially setting us back to square one on formatting and art. As such we are still working on all of the art. This is expected to take a fair amount of time and as such the Locked Safe which is our system compendium, is not set to release until the end of 2018.

However with the major part of the formatting done, we will now be working on our Game Master’s Guide and our Martial Arts Guide which both should be released to our Patreon/Indiegogo customers sometime around august.

Additionally NeedleStitch who runs our social media was at EFNW which we forgot to mention because readons.

That’s everything for now. Until next week Dead Tree Fans!

Wasted Survival Guide

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

This week saw a lot of productivity. The most notable being the finished re-edit of our Wasteland Survival Guide. The majority of the changes being capitalization and punctuation. Though a couple missing racial perks were added in as well. Those who purchased digital or physical copies via our Web store have already received a download for the updated pdf. Those who purchased books at BABSCon are encouraged to email us a picture of them with their book and we will send you a download link for the updated PDF.

Aditionally we also got a fair amount of formatting done on our system compendium. We are hoping to have all the formatting done in a week or two with which the only thing left will be art.

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

Day-Job, Schmay-Job

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

Can’t really say much has happened these last too weeks. Unfortunately the bulk of us have been a little bit busy with our day jobs (thing thing that we use to pay for the crazyness that is DTS) and have been to busy earning a living to work on anything DTS related. Biscayne was flying plains, L9 was on a business trip, Moon was raiding a pillaging in the name of Odin, Zen was… doing Zen stuff (Gawd knows what that is), and Ty was doing freelance stuff.

Thankfully things seem to be settling down again and we are back on to our normal insanity (the fun kind! not the boring “work to pay bills kind”).

Until next week Dead Tree Fans!

Post BABSCon Blues


Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

We are back from windy San Francisco after an absolutely wonderful time at BABSCon!

To give a short re-cap for now, things went rather great. We had two panels, the first being our “Drunk GMing is Magic: Or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb” on Friday night. That panel went about as well as you would expect. Lots of drunk shenanigans and stories, making fun of friends in the audience, and what not. It was a great time everyone seemed to have fun.

Our Second panel was our usual “Dead Tree Studios: Fallout Equestria PnP” Press release panel and that went over quite well as well. We talked about the FoE PnP and the journey it’s been to get it to where it’s at. We talked about things that went wrong, and things that went right. We also talked about our future plans including the 3 Games we are looking forward to working on AFTER we finish Fallout: Equestria PnP.

On top of that we ran games in the TTG room for most of the convention, which was a lot of fun. We saw a lot of faces, both new and old.  Some people brought their own characters, others used pre-gens. Things got rather interesting.

Lastly we had a Table in the Vendor’s hall and sold quite a lot of books. In fact we sold most of everything we brought, which was pretty exiting! Aside from the Printer kicking the bucket and the occasional lack of reception for the card reader, things went extremely smoothly.

All in all we had a LOT of fun and did extremely well.

On the not Con Side of things, book rebuilding is progressing well, albeit a little slow, and we are taking steps to make our social media less dead. And by “taking steps” we mean hired our friend Needle-Stitch to do it for us. By “hired” we mean that we told her we’d stop making fun of EAST Corp if she helped us. Lol

One of the other projects we are working on is that we are currently planning on setting up and Live streaming a Saturday night Gaming session. Currently no solid Time/start date. But hopefully it will begin in the next couple weeks. We’re hoping to showcase some of the unreleased stuff that will be in our system compendium.

Additionally the “Diary of a Mary Sue: A Character Creation Guide” is finally released to the General public! Those with digital copies should have already gotten theirs, those with physical copies will have theirs mailed out this week!

That’s everything for now.  See you all next week Dead Tree fans! Don’t forget to leave a comment below and to check out our discord server! Until next week!

We do it for the low, not the high.

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

This week saw us mostly putting our efforts into convention prep, packing, organizing, making lists, checking them twice, getting hyped for the month of post con depression etc etc. You know, the usual.

Additionally there was some more book building and prepping for print. Excluding the lost art, our Compendium “The Locked Safe” is almost completely re-built.

Last on the list is something that has actually been on our “to post about in the dev blog” list for weeks now, but someone *cough*L9*cough* had kept forgetting. Our sponsor Fiaura the Tank Girl Streams Games of Fallout Equestria every Wednesday and Saturday, and has a Fic she writes about the escapades called Fallout Equestria: Remains. They’re a lot of fun to read and watch and you should very much check her stuff out. And for the last time, no, we don’t need to be rescued from the clutches of Queen Quake, she’s actually quite the fair benevolent god. It also helps that we have a constant supply of excellent coffee.

That’s everything for this week. There may OR may not be a Dev Blog up-date next week, if not we will see you all again AFTER BABSCon. Unless you’re at BABSCon, in which case, come say hi and buy stuff from us! Until next time Dead Tree Fans!
