How do I even begin to write this thank you letter? This project succeeded beyond my expectations. Which is also an ill-omen for my end of year work plans, as I now have to write two more games and about 20 more characters. I hate all of you. Okay.... (Read More)

Less than one day remaining

There's less than 24 hours remaining in this kickstarter. And we're about to hit 15k. Which is just insane, if you ask me. I was just looking to make back a few dollars on the artwork and now I have to do all this extra work. I suspect some of you... (Read More)

new stretch goals and a new character

November 13th - via:
I have an idea and name for this fellow here, but I'd be curious to hear some thoughts from everyone as to what possible character class this is. Also, you should check out the three new stretch goals, now that we've crossed the 10k threshold. Wow.... (Read More)

If you're looking for the update you don't want to miss, this is it. The omnibus is not being printed through ingram, or onebookshelf, or dtrpg. I am looking for custom printers and I've found at least one that does that job effectively, but I'm... (Read More)

I don't really really have any news, other than Juan Ochoa is dragging his butt on game 6 art. It's like he doesn't even care about you guys. But I care. I really do. Which is why I'm writing a short update about nothing and letting you back to your... (Read More)

For those of you who don't follow my rants on facebook, I had some plumbing problems (again) at the house. I've been living here 2.23 years and have dealt with the plumbing here 1400 times already. Tuesday at 4am a pipe ruptured under the house and I... (Read More)

Not discounting my overuse of ellipses, that's a creepy piece of art. Juan just finished it a few hours ago. It's going into game 6, which has a working title of wastelands. It takes place after the other 5 games, with the world in ash and black... (Read More)

We are approaching 100 backers and nearly $7000. This project is accelerating much faster than I anticipated. In fact, it's on task to do better than the previous praxis kickstarter — which makes me happy and nervous all at once. (i have... (Read More)

This project is doing surprisingly well so far. And I wanted to take a few minutes to address the project and those of you who are already in. First. Thank you. I say that all the time when I do a kickstarter. But I mean it. I don't gush or get... (Read More)

I leave my desk for a few hours and this happens?We're already at $3000 and stretch goals 1 and 2? If this keeps up, I'll have to invent more characters or something. I blame all of you. I'm especially looking at you, Craig.  (Read More)
