Latest Updates from Our Project:

Update! And Happy Holidays!
1 day ago – Thu, Nov 23, 2017 at 01:50:17 PM

Hello!

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!

Hi folks!

Thanks for your patience as we continue to work on these outstanding projects. 

  • 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 as well as the dice. 

The GM Screen is being edited and then will go into layout immediately upon the book being finished. 

Functionally, 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!

Sample Coins

Hello!

Work continues a pace for completing Aquelarre. The translations for the corebook, GM Screen, and Adventures are all done, and the rules reside in the hands of our layout artist who is currently laying out the core rulebook. 

We'll have some previews of that soon.

In the meantime, we've finished the coins for the Kickstarter through Campaign Coins. They took a bit of finagling to get right, but we're exceptionally pleased with the result.

 We know things have been slow to move. There's a lot of outstanding Kickstarter projects that we've had to undertake in the wake of what happened. We've managed to close a few and finish them off, which makes moving on the projects that are outstanding easier.

It's a slow process (there's over a dozen outstanding projects that we've suddenly had to learn the ins and outs of), and we're trying very hard to do them all the justice Stewart would have wanted. 

Things are moving forward though and this project has not been forgotten. We will make sure the next update is not as long in coming.

Hello!

Thank you for your patience and grace as we sort these things out. 

  • The core Aquelarre manuscript is finished, and we're preparing to send it to layout.
  • The Aquelarre Art cards are being finalized, then printed. 
  • The coin is being minted! 
  • The GM Screen is done and ready for layout!

Things are moving along. We're looking forward to getting this in your hands. As soon as I have a timeline update on layout, I'll be sure to provide that.

Thank you for your patience as we move forward with this.

Aquelarre Update

Update

Steve Wieck and I sat down at GenCon and discussed Aquelarre. The book is being sent to layout. Our usual layout artist has a queue, so we're discussing the option of a replacement to get this moving. We have to review resumes and timing to make sure we make the right choice.

The coins are being finalized with Campaign Coins and once we have the proofs we'll be ordering that.

Dice are in progress!

We appreciate your patience as we sort out the remaining pieces. This game will be fulfilled, and we're working to make progress.
