Hey folks!

Layout continues apace. As soon as we have a PDF for you, we'll get it to you. 

In other news, proofs of the Aquelarre dice came!

Check those out!
Check those out!

 These are done and in transit to the fulfillment center in the US!

Layout Previews

Hey folks!

Layout continues on Aquelarre! Here are some previews. We're making good progress, and as soon as this is done, we'll create the Brevarium and get the PDFs out!

Here are some in progress pictures.

We hope everyone had a good holiday season. Layout continues apace on Aquelarre, and we've received a rough estimate of the end of the month/early February for final PDFs. 

Obviously, this can change, but we're confident that we'll see it very soon! Dice are at the printers, the cards and the GM Screen are prepped to go to print at the same time as the books! We're almost there.


King Arthur Pendragon 5.2 is now in the US! 

We're working with our fulfillment partners to get preorders and those who paid for early shipping out as fast as possible.  

But we realize it's been a long wait. Later today, an at-cost code for ordering a POD of King Arthur Pendragon 5.2 will be sent to you via BackerKit if you ordered a copy of KAP 5.2 as part of this Kickstarter

This code will allow you to get an early copy IF YOU WANT, while you wait for your standard copy to arrive. I will stress again: This is NOT replacing the copy you paid for, but is instead an attempt to provide you something to have while you wait for the final edition.  

We will be sending out codes for standard hardcover and premium hardcover (if you're familiar with DriveThruRPG.) The at-cost at the premium is a little pricey, but we wanted to provide both otpions. 

This is an entirely optional purchase.

Thank you for your patience and support. We're doing our best to get this all done!

So, we've got good news. 

1.) KAP 5.2 is in the US, and pre-orders for that are being fulfilled. I've requested information on how we're handling it related to Aquelarre, but I have not gotten a final answer yet. 

2.) Prince Valiant and our Storypath cards are at the printer, Wurm has arrived in the US, and Gladiator, Innocents, and Moods of the Mad King are all Kickstarter projects that we've managed to close. 

I realize this might seem like unrelated news, but as our team undertook over a dozen outstanding projects (and we're all working other jobs), we've had to approach this in a "domino effect" fashion, knocking down one project after another. 

Our layout artist had Prince Valiant's Episodes book holding her up from Aquelarre, but now that is done! Her task list is now solely any outstanding Aquelarre components, and we're confident we'll have this game at the printer soon (and the PDF in your hands even sooner!)

I've reached out for a timeline from our layout artist so I can communicate that to you. I'm hopefully next week we'll have a locked in timeline and we can start hitting those benchmarks for you so you can have them.

Update! And Happy Holidays!

Some of our team is off celebrating American Thanksgiving, and I wanted to pop in and give you all an update. 

First off, thank you.

You've been patient and supportive as we got our feet under us and tried to move forward on these projects. We could not ask for better backers and supporters. 

  • The core Aquelarre book is in layout. 
  • Once that is done, we'll build the requisite chapters into the Brevarium.
  • We've also identified and prepared the art cards for print.
  • Dice are being manufactured. 
  • The GM Screen is edited and handed off for layout after the book.

 As we said before, once the corebook is laid out, we'll release the PDF, we will give it a few weeks to gather backer feedback (if you find errors, edits, etc. that we missed.) 

While this is happening we'll handle the GM screen layout, and then we'll go to print with everything at once!

Some of you have asked if we're printing the new 4-panel screen that was released. I'm working to get a firm answer on that as I was just handed the files after translation and editing. Once I know I'll post here in the comments.

Thanks everyone!
