Editing, So much Editing.

This is a thing, apparently.

Before we get too far into this, you deserve a little snapshot of my day.  I wake up at somewhere around 5:30AM.  I head to the airport around 6:30 to be ready to go fly around 8 (I have an hour commute). I’m in and out of airplanes until around 7PM.  After that, L9OBL and I sit down and edit books until 10 or 11.  Then it’s to bed to turn around and do it again.

Before you think I’m complaining, I want you to know what my editing actually is like.  I make the poor sap sit down and read his book to me while I blare 80s pop music and tell them how much their writing sucks.  Then things get fixed, and magical goodness presents itself from the ashes of the author’s hopes and dreams.

In other words, we haven’t been writing new blog posts because L9OBL has been crying in a corner to the sound of “You Can Call Me Al” by Paul Simon whilst I laugh at him maniacally.

Stay tuned for more updates as the second of the six book series enters the final stages before formatting for print!


*Whistles RWBY Soundtrack*

Can’t really say there’s too much to update you folks on this week.

Another book has finished the writing stage and is undergoing editing, after that, it’s off to formatting in  Adobe InDesign.

A bunch of finished art got completed as well.

I binge watched RWBY like 6 times. I think that puts my count at 23 or 24 times i’ve seen the series.

and we had a meeting over the weekend discussing exciting things like release dates, upcoming conventions, and art. As well as boring things like expenses, and paperwork.

That’s about it for now.

See you all next week!

Dead Tree Blog: Unprofessional Edition

yeah, yeah, I know. I’m late. This weekend and the predeceasing week have been pretty busy.

Another book is nearing the formatting stage,

we did a pre-release on our Master List System. It’s currently a tiny fraction of the full list and it’s been a pain picking and choosing what to release.  However you can find all the lists, the changes to Kkat and Sunrise’s original rules as well as our Master List Online character sheet under the ‘Projects’ Tab in the Menu.

A Slew of site updates have come as well so you may or may not spot those.

Some art has been released in our gallery.

and, as there was much debate between the DTS members, we decided to leave it to you, our Fans. Do you guys want the falling ash/snow effect on our website? Submit your response via the straw poll I made up: Here

With that I’m off to art some more. Ciao!

On the sixth, er fifth, day of blog posts, dead tree gave to me…

Updates and what we’re doing in the future!!

Oh, and before I begin, May the Fourth be with you all.

While, it’s been said to death but we do have a Patreon. There are some pretty sweet awards for what we have. And hopefully some of you could come out to hang with us at BABScon in California. The weather was a lot nicer than I’d expect. Not overly hot or blindingly sunny.

In addition, we are not content to simply bring you the best in apocalyptic pony combat and role-playing. We have several expansions and editions planed for both the near and future future. While I won’t spend too much time talking about them, (as it’s not here and I’d rather not try to make you believe the empty air I have in front of me) we have several racial expansions planned as well as more charts, maps, minis, etc. Stay tuned to your radio viewers, as we unfold more to come in the near future.

Oh, and we’ll be traveling the con-circuit later this year. Some of us will be wandering around Bronycon, and while we won’t have anything official, there maaaay be a small set up of FoE in the games room. More as that develops. Also, for anyone in the Wisconsin area, keep your eyes to cons around you. Never know where you might find a Dead Tree,

Later folks.

On the Forth Day of Blog Post, Dead Tree Gave to me…

Four Coming event’s

Coming back from Babscon has been an eye opening experience, not just for my self but for all of Dead Tree. We are fully committed to see this through even if it kills all my team mates!
Since returning home we have started the prep work for upcoming cons we are planning to go to.
Speaking of Cons we are planning to Attend Bronycon this coming July, through hell or high water. (Which is harder since half of our staff can’t swim.) Ciderfest is also on our radar so keep your eyes peeled you just might catch us.

In other news PVCF is getting our 3D models made up for printing and if all goes well these coming months by Ciderfest we will be getting our first offical prototype books Yay!
Well, we will keep fighting the good fight to bring you more news in the future, now matter how bad it hurts.

Ya, it sounds better when 3 Dog does it. Remember to show us your support on Patreon and stay safe out there.

Three Awesome Panels!

Well, ok, not really. It’s one Awesome Panel from Dead Tree, and Mediocre Panels from our friends at P.A.B.S. xP JK

So for those who were not At BABScon or were not Present for our Panel here’s the long and short of what you missed:

Fallout: Equestria PnP:

We’ve been working on a comprehensive “Master List” system, for the last Three/Four Years.

Based off of the original Kkat/Sunrise system, we’ve updated the rules slightly, are re-writing the Core book to be a little easier to understand and added Loads of Perks, Traits, Weapons, Armour, Items, etc.

There are 6 Core Rule Books:

The Wasteland Survival Guide;Our core rule book and the only book you need to Play. This book will be sold at cost and any profits we might make off of it will go to charity, as it isn’t our IP.

Diary Of A Mary Sue: A Character Creation Guide, designed to help both new and seasoned players of the FoE PnP System, and Table Top RPGs in general, to create a character.

GM Bullshit The Overmare; Our Game Master’s Guide, filled with; lists, charts tables, how to make NPCs and Bosses, Traps, Taint and More! This Book is Designed to be everything a GM needs and More!

Hoofticuffs; Our Martial Arts guide, This book focuses on the Martial Arts Mechanics, and our expansive list of Martial Arts. From popular Styles like Fallen Ceasar and Doom Bunny, to ones we’ve come up with ourselves like Titan Slayer (Weaboo Intensifies! (no not that kind of Titan) )

The Locked Safe; List porn. Every Item, Perk, Trait, Spell and mechanic we’ve devised for this project and more!

The Gilded Cage: This is our Bestiary. It will contain… well all the Beasts, and monsters, and mobs. As well as a section on how to make your own monsters, and the necessary tools to make your own. Including Monster Perks!


Upon release, we will also have 3D printed figurines, A Map board, a GM Blind, A Dice Set (with our own minted D2 coin!), a CD/Thumbdrive with digital copies of; character sheets, all the books as well as links to the most up to date versions of everything. and a Box Set which will include all of these and even comes with free shipping!

We are also going to have Race, Mechanics, and Universe Expansion Packs which we will start working on after the initial release. Expect close to 50 different Races, Necromancy, Vehicles, other lands/kingdoms and more! We also plan to make map packs to sell for those more… enthusiastic fans.

We went over pricing during our Panel as well. Nothing is set in stone but expect about 40$ each for the books, 20$ for the CD, 15$ Each for the Figurines, and 500$ for the Box set, (which includes Shipping and handling to the US).

Further more we talked about future projects after FoE PnP,

Handed out Sparkle Cola Bottle Caps to our attendees

and answered a bunch of questions. Mostly Pertaining to what changes we’ve made to the original rule set.


Saturday we went to an awesome Panel by our good friends at P.A.B.S (Who are the other jokers in that first photo) and suggest you check them out if you like Animation and Fallout Equestria, as they are working on animating a bunch of FoE Stories pertaining to things that have happened before the Fallout Equestria Novel. It’s actually really cool and we’d love for you to check them out!


Sunday we attended a Panel by Overmare Studios, giving a nice little update on their Fallout: Equestria video game. It was also really cool and we suggest you check them out for the very minute amount of people who haven’t heard of them!


Either way it was an absolute blast and we had a heck of a lot more people show up then we were expecting! So thanks again to everyone who showed.

At the risk of sounding like a Vegan cross-fitter who vapes. Check out our Patreon! We have tons of cool rewards including, commissions, Early Access, a special box set and more! So if you like what you saw at BABScon or what you read on our Website, support us on Patreon, every bit helps!

On the Second Day of Blog Posts, Dead Tree Gave To Me…

…an RP full of fresh meat!

I mean a new batch of people interested in playing our system! For those who were there at Babscon and joined us for our game sessions in the tabletop games room, thank you for showing up and for the support. I personally didn’t expect more than 3 people to show up for the entire convention.

For those of you who didn’t make it to Babscon, let me fill you in on what happened. We had booked a table in the tabletop games room for the entire convention, where we all took turns hosting games using our Master List System. On the first day before our panel we had about 3 people show up and play a game hosted by Zen. However right after our panel when Moonhoof was hosting a game we had just about, if not a full table of people rushing to play. From there the attendance numbers kept increasing to the point where, when I hosted my games, there was at least a table and a half of people who joined in and played. Sadly it made gaming a bit hectic to the point where, after my session ended, we decided to host multiple games with smaller groups of people at the same time.

Also a few people who played, had never played the FoE PnP or knew little to nothing about Fallout Equestria as a whole. There was even a guy who wasn’t into ponies who loved playing the game and the system. To think that we here at Dead Tree Studios may have created something that people out side of the community can enjoy with people in the community amazes me to no end.

To sum all of this up we all still can’t believe that this convention and our official debut went far better than expected. It shows how many people are interested and really love this passion project of ours. For me personally it shows that this isn’t all for “nothing”, (as far as going all out when we could have done this for our selves and move on) but for the community we are dedicating this too. Again thank you all for the support and we hope you stick around for more from us.

PS. If dont know already, we have a Patreon page at the request of you guys. Please check us out over there if you looking to contribute to our endeavors, to help keep this project going. CLICK HERE to go to our Patreon page.

On the First Day of Blog Posts, Dead Tree Gave To Me…

…A Patreon Site!

Yes, we have a Patreon now! As many of you may be aware, We attended BABSCon 2016 and had a helluva good time! Part of that time was a panel, during which we asked our attendees if they would be interested in supporting us via Patreon. A Staggering number of people said they would. So, being the slaves to public demand we are, we set one up.

We are setting up some very special perks for our Patreon Subscribers, including art by our staff artists, GMs For Hire, and a special edition version of our Box Set exclusively for those who have more money than sense donate generously.

Keep an eye on this space for updates from the rest of the team; we have a lot of stuff to share with you, and a place for you to throw money at us is almost the least of it!
