Hello to all of our amazing backers! Below is a list of the things we're discussing in this big update so you can skim the headlines if you wish. Thank you for taking time to read any or all of it AND of course thank you for helping us make all of these awesome things that have come into being over the past 18 months!
- Class Decks Status
- Harold the Halfling's Herbology Handbook: Fantastic Flora (New Deep Dungeon Games Project)
- Tome Of Magical Mystery Flip Through (Live on Twitch.tv)
- Quality of Life Updates (Products Other Than Class Decks)
Status of Project
Please keep in mind with this update that everything we're doing has to be done 12 times!
So at this point the Class Decks have a long way to go still, we have hundreds of pieces of art done but we're just past the half way point, the artist is AMAZING and way ahead of schedule! The main templates that are laying out how we'll be putting the information on cards, how we'll be showing the same information on Print & Play formats AND how everything will appear in the book (along with new content for the book to tie things together with some story for your world) is all being worked on one piece at a time and almost finished. Our layout and editing guru has been hard at work prepping everything so that real writing can begin to happen and we'll continue to go back and forth as the writing does progress.
Tuck box designs are done and super cool, card designs as far as how layout is going to look has been approved AND we're currently about to start doing some official writing (everything so far has been idea's, rough drafts, etc. for all 600 items) so we're still on schedule BUT don't expect any actual downloadable files (like a finished PDF) to be done any time soon. Our original release data was sometime around December and we're sticking with that, we think we'll be able to put the PDF in everyone's hands around that time and we don't want to put out the PDF until we're sure it's about done.
We have debated back and forth a few times about sending out PDF's of class decks as they are done but at this point we're not going to guarantee that we're making that decision at this time. Right now we're split into 4 different pieces and 2 are full time on the class decks right now while the other 2 of us are wrapping up older projects or working on new projects, we have to keep moving forward and trying to keep making things to have the business profitable just like anybody else even though this huge project is on us :) We love having the ability to create all of these awesome things and we've hired on the help to make it possible but we're still a very small team creating these awesome things and I'm still working a full time job!
Harold The Halfling's Herbology Handbook: Fantasic Flora (New DDG Project)
Harold the Halfling's Herbology Handbook: Fantastic Flora is the newest project by Deep Dungeon Games and it opened up on Kickstarter and was funded in 4 hours! Harold's Handbook is an all-new RPG supplement with 70+ different types of in-game flora ready for any fantasy-based tabletop game. This compendium, cleverly narrated by Harold himself, focuses on the types of flora your adventurers will commonly encounter: trees, fungi, crops, fruits, vegetables, and more, detailing their origins, environments, and uses. The stretch goals on this project are amazing and could quadruple the size of the book and its contents, it's well worth checking out to add some extra life to your world :) The more stretch goals we hit the more things we'll be making INCLUDING 200+ new potions, baked goods, fruits and vegetables if we keep pushing the project further towards those stretch goals!
