Art Preview 3 - Plus Updates
11 days ago – Fri, Dec 01, 2017 at 11:08:47 PM

Hey all you awesome backers;

I'm really looking forward to December; dayjob work is winding down (so my hours are less) and the plant is shut down so I have a week of solid vacation to focus on creative projects (not counting holidays which I won't be working). By the end of the month, there will be a final draft of the Campaign Setting Guide, the Backerkit will be closed, and I'll have a full production schedule for all supplements in 2018.

Here's a preview of the Player's Guide cover, a work in progress by Jeffrey Chen (he's illustrating the battle scene when the Tarrasque was initially bound).

Here’s what I worked On: 

  • Bought a bunch of art 
  • Wrote a bunch 
  • Edited a Bunch 
  • Collected some Binder-Lord submissions 

In the coming days, you’ll have an invite to a Salt in Wounds online convention game (assuming it’s not filled by Binder-Lords), map and more art previews, and (hopefully) Carving up the Tarrasque. Wheeeeee. Now back to work.

Hey All You Backers!  

Realized recently that I totally skipped Sep 15 Update… my bad.  

Anyway, I’m working on Carving up the Tarrasque which will be done soon, I collected all the iconic art, approved first look at Salt in Wounds Map, Collected a couple more Binder-Lord submissions, ran some playtests, comissioned and bought some more art, wrote some Salt in Wounds fiction, and spent more time on the campaign setting guide, and a whole lot more besides. I would expand, but I’d prefer to use the time working on Salt in Wounds books proper.  

I’m behind on responding to email and KS messages, emails and artist comminques (I will get to all of them though). I plan on releasing all the art so far in preview form, so expect a backer only update about that. Backerkit will be closing in October, so if you know anyone who wanted to preorder now is their final chance to get all the books at the lowest price they’ll be. More updates as they come, which will be sooner rather than later.
