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!

Week in week out

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

This week saw more of the usual, as well as some small changes to the website. The most notable is that we removed the pre-alpha lists from our website. We did this for two reasons, the biggest being that out pre alpha lists are old, outdated and broken and no linger suitable for use. Especially with the released version. The second reason is that we did officially release the game and you can now buy the WSG on the online store and get it shipped to your house.

Edit: Additionally we left the alpha rules pdf up so you can reference it if need be. It will eventually be replaced with a quick start guide.

Thats it for now. Were going to keep things rather short because of how busy we are. If you have questions, come find is on discord or leave a comment.

Until next week Dead Tree fans!

Something Witty

Greetings Dead Tree Fans.

These past two weeks have had us pretty busy so ill cut to the chase. Mainly we have been working our butts off on putting the next books together. No set release dates though. We have also been hard at work prepping for our two BABSCon panels and getting our ducks in a row for our vendor’s table.

Additionallysome of you nay have found out that we took down the pre-alpha lists. The reason being that not only are they out of date they are also not very well balanced. If you would like access to the final lists we ask that you purchase either the digital copy or printed copy of the WSG. The pre-alpha rules however will remain on the website, but will eventually be replaced by a quick start guide.

That’s all fir 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!


Fuzzy wuzzy was a bear

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

To get down to the point this week has been kind of a blur.

We have worked on art, book prep and writing, and have been getting our ducks in a row for BABScon. Couldn’t really tell you more than that, i could have sworn that it was still thursday.

Until next week Dead Tree Fans! Be sure to leave a comment, check out our facebook, twitter and discord as well as our patreon.  And as usual, be careful, it’s a wasteland out there!


Casting Bars

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

We bring you a slightly late dev blog, as we were busy with… things (ok we were crying about the up coming valentines day we will be spending in crippling loneliness…again).

Biggest things that happened was all the work we got done. a couple changes to our website and web-store are in the works aswell, so keep an eye out for that.

We entered a co-sponsorship deal with Fiaura The Tank Girl, more on that to come though.

Also we got asked to be interviewed on Barcast! Happening this friday at 7pm -5gmt  /  6pm -6gmt  /  5pm -7gmt   /  4pm -8gmt…

Being interviewed are our lead writer Moonhoof and lead game dev Zen, be sure to check out their twitch HERE and go to their Fimfiction thread HERE to write down all of the questions you want answered. Like “Why is Moon’s beard so majestic” and “How the hell do you guys put up with that L9 guy”.

Also, art and book formatting got done too, but thats less important.

Untill next week Dead Tree Fans!


New Blog, Who Dis?

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

Don’t worry, we were joking about having Princess Mary Sue write all our Dev Blogs for us (it’s pretty torturous to write like that tbh). However we weren’t joking about our book the “Diary of a Mary Sue” is in-fact done. We’ve sent it to the printer and are waiting to get the proof back for final inspection.

We also want to re-affirm that we are indeed going to BABSCon 2018 and will have 2 Panels; our usual Panel about the FoE PnP, as well as a second panel called “Drunk GMing is Magic Or: How to stop worrying and love the bomb”. We will also have a Vendor’s table at BABSCon, where we will be selling merch, as well as copies of our books. Additionally we will be running a table top table and demoing the game all weekend, but in honesty that’s not much of a surprise. There are also some other cool things that we will be doing at BABSCon, but we can’t tell you about them yet.

This week, aside from sending our Final PDF to the printer, we also worked on our system compendium “The Locked Safe”. Doing art and prepping and formatting the Book.

That’s everything this week, don’t forget to leave a comment and to check out our Discord Server, Patreon, Twitter, and Facebook too! See you all next week!

The Mary Sue Take Over

Blog post 15

Greetings Dead Tree Fans my Loyal Subjects!

It is I, your favorite monarch, Princess Mary Sue.

I have taken over this week’s Dev Blog Royal Dlog to inform you that instead of releasing their next book. DTS has instead agreed to  publish my Diary! Exciting right? Now all of you loyal subjects will get to see all my fabulous tips and tricks for making a character (and if you’re tentative about it, you might even make one as awesome and cool as me!), i’m looking forward to your impressive characters!

My Diary should be made available to the my Patreon and Indiegogo subjects sometime this month, and the rest of my loyal subjects sometime near the end of February/beginning of March.

On that note, DTS has asked me to relay some information for them, and because I’m just that fantastically nice and amazing and beautiful, I have decided to do so. I know, I’m just SO generous! Right?!

So here it goes, the super drab, boring DTS news that they asked me to tell you about (seriously I should be sainted for this generosity).

So first on the list of boring news is that Dead Tree Studios will be at BABSCon (Wait, what? Why wasn’t I invited!!!??? Golden Gates and I are Besties! I totes wanna be there too! (oh and I can’t forget Queen Quake, she’s such a doll <3). They apparently have two Super horribly boring Panels this year. Their usual “Fallout Equestria PnP” Panel  where they talk about their boring game, and then they have some “Drunk GMing is Magic” Panel where they are going to talk about being drunk while playing table top games… because table top games are so boring you need to be drunk to enjoy them.

The second is that they suck, and are terrible and boring, for not inviting me to BABSCon….. Bunch of butt heads!

Also they hope you had a fantastic holiday season.

Lastly they would like to announce that they’ve been working super hard on the remaining books (as if!) and have completed a lot of art and finalized the remaining manuscripts so they can prep for print.  The two books they are focusing on the most currently are their Game Master’s guide and their System Compendium. They don’t know which one will be released first, or when they will be released.

That concludes your very first Royal Dlog (so  much better than Dev Blog right?) I hope to see all you loyal subjects next week and am SUPER excited to read all your comments and compliments! So be sure to send those in!

It Crismas Merr Crismas

Good evening Dead Tree Fans! We hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season, whatever you celebrate.

Today we bring you some most fantastic news. The WSG is finished and we have started the process to print it. Indiegogo and Patreon supporters had the PDF emailed to them yesterday and final checklists are being…. checked.

To be honest it sounds super surreal, even to us. But officially The WSG has been released. Indiegogo/Patreon Supporters can expect to get their physical copies in January. Pre-Order customers can expect to get their copies around February/March.

Our next book we plan on releasing is our character creation Guide titled: Diary of a Mary Sue: A Character Creation Guide. The plan is to send it off to the printer sometime in January.

With that all set, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy new years. Along with a joyful holiday. Until next time Dead Tree Fans, which probably wont be until the 8th of January or so.

Midnight Hour

Blog post 13

Greetings Dead Tree Fans!

That is Correct! The final hours (well days) are upon us! Our Core Rule Book The Wasteland Survival Guide Is in its very last stretches. The only things left for us to do is: The last bits of item art and replacing the placeholders in the books, final read through and edits (the major edit was completed now the non-editing team gets to put their grubby hands all over it looking for mistakes), and getting the final blessing of Kkat, MadModd, Ulushia, Shadysteps,Usea and Doubleclick.

That’s it that’s all. Crazy random happenstances aside, we hope to have the book sent off to the printer VERY SOON!

As a reminder those who ordered books through our Patreon or Indiegogo will get Digital Copies emailed to them after we have sent the File off to the printer. Those who ordered via our pre-order store will have the books released to them a couple months after they have been released to the Patreon/Indiegogo customers.

Additionally, the Diary of a Mary Sue is fast approaching its title fight with our Editor-In-Chief. Who will win? The world’s cringiest writing, or a pissed off pilot with a red pen? Tickets on sale NOW!

No set release date yet but our hopes are to have our character creation guide released to the general public (non-Patreon/Indiegogo customers) before BABScon. No promises though.

With that we shall return to our dungeons, excited and giddy with the approaching release date. Be sure to leave a comment, check out our twitter, subscribe to our facebook and to take a cursory glance at our Patreon! 

Until next time Dead Tree Fans!
