(If you’re a fan of my other game line, Little Fears, you can pick up some Campfire Tales for Little Fears Nightmare Edition—The Fall Harvest, Death by Chocolate, and Camp Howling Wolf—while you’re there as well.)
Finally! If you’ve been waiting on Five-Story Drop, I have some good news: I wanted to make sure all the Kickstarter backer copies had shipped before opening this for public sale but now anyone can grab Five-Story Drop in print and/or pdf right here.
My hope is that, by now, almost all of you have received your physical rewards (books and dice). If you pledged $60 or less and have not received your reward, please let me know!
Most of the $100 and $200 backers should have their goods as well though I did just discover that ten international orders didn’t make it out due to being hidden in the spreadsheet. *sigh* But I’m fixing that immediately. I have a stack of packages ready to go out tomorrow morning.
Latest word from Ed Lima is that the soundtrack is coming along well and should be wrapping up soon. I’m very excited to get the rest of the soundtrack out to you folks.
For those who have been wanted to pick up Five-Story Drop, I will have the book added to the online store tomorrow.
Last major bit to wrap up are the backer-influenced scenarios. If you’re one of those backers, expect an email next week to get the ball rolling.
Streets of Bedlam has had multiple bumps in the road since the Kickstarter launch. I fumbled some major aspects and I sincerely apologize to everyone. I will endeavor to wrap up these last few bits in the coming months.
Early next year, expect word on the next book in the series. I have the writer contracted and will be moving forward with that soon. Stay tuned.
Hello! Just a quick update that the revised Five-Story Drop cover proof has been accepted and the books are now cleared for print. I should have them in my hand in about two weeks, I reckon. I’ll let you all know when I do!
The Five-Story Drop proof came in Friday! Here’s an action shot:
The interior looks good but, unfortunately, there’s an issue with the cover. As you can see, the red spinal column overlaps part of the front cover. Not the biggest of big deals but it’s enough of an issue that I’m going to upload a new version of the cover. Since everything else works, I’ll do a digital proof this time which will cut the processing time down severely. As soon as this issue is fixed, I’ll order the books!
Hey everyone, just a quick note that Five-Story Drop has gone through the print pre-processing and I should have a proof in my hands either tomorrow or Thursday. If it’s good then I’ll sign off on it and place the order. I’ll post pics once the proof is in my hands.
The files for Five-Story Drop have been updated on DriveThruRPG. I’ve included two versions of the interior. One is lo-rez (web) thus smaller in file size while the other is hi-rez (print) but bigger in file size.
The plan is to send this off to the printer on Monday, July 8th. PLEASE! If you find any issues, errors, whatever, let me know! Send me an email at JasonLBlair@gmail.com or use the contact form on this website.
Thank you all for your support and patience. To those of you who have waited to the longest: It’s almost over!
Hey everyone, just a quick note to let you know that the updated PDF of Five-Story Drop will be out this Friday. Moving house and then having family in town caused some bumps but the book is on its way. If you have any notes or errors or anything you’d like to see addressed, please let me know!
That means the file will get uploaded to the printer on Monday, July 8th.
Next Steps on Five-Story Drop
Five-Story Drop hit digital shelves last Friday but, as you may well know, it’s not exactly ready for the print commitment. I’ve spent a good portion of this past week moving but will have time next week to give the text and layout some much-needed love, make some additions, and then get it to the printer. I’ll update the PDF with the changes as well.
I’m currently on track to have the hardcopies of Five-Story Drop in-hand in the middle of next month. Once they are, I’ll get all Kickstarter backer orders who have been waiting on this book fulfilled.
Wrapping up Kickstarter
But Five-Story Drop isn’t the only thing dangling from the Kickstarter. I’m in communication with Ed Lima about finalizing Sounds of Bedlam. I hope to have an update on that next week. I also have some other scenarios to do, ones I’ll be working with certain KS backers with. If you’re one of those backers, expect an email sometime next month about getting that ball rolling.
I also owe you all some pre-gen characters and I’ll get those done while Five-Story Drop is printing.
Okay, that’s all for this week. I’ll update you all next Friday with all of this is at.
