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!

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!
