Backerkit Closing Soon - Get your Survey Responses In (And other updates)
20 days ago – Sun, Oct 01, 2017 at 11:31:58 PM

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.

Because I've been up late editing 'Carving up the Tarrasque' I decided to push your regularly scheduled update to tomorrow. In the meantime though, here's some awesome art from Jeffrey Chen.

G'night you lovely backers. I'll whisper more Salt in Wounds secrets to you tomorrow...

As part of our participation in the upcoming Aethercon 6 online gaming convention, I'll be chatting as part of a roundtable with Lead Artist Jeffrey Chen and Designer & Project Manager Neal Powell. I figure this might be the sort of thing that's relevant to your interests.

See you at 4pm Pacific (or, if you can't make it then, I believe the link will still work for the recorded version thereafter).
