Hi hkd­har­mon!

At this stage we are wait­ing for the last few pieces of art­work to come in, and soon after that the lay­out folks will be get­ting busy. So we are well into the process.

Regards,

Phil

Here’s a copy of the lat­est update that was sent to all Back­ers ear­lier today:

Greet­ings all,

With the release of the text-​only PDF we received 20-​odd posts in our forum Errata thread that have now been incor­po­rated into the base­line text. So when the next ver­sions are released, and the text-​only PDF is re-​released, the con­tent will be cleaner (and, dare we hope, per­haps even com­pletely free of typos and gram­mat­i­cal grem­lins).

We have expe­ri­enced delays with the illus­tra­tions which have in turn flowed on to affect our antic­i­pated deliv­ery times. As of today, we are wait­ing on the last two illus­tra­tions. In total Blade will con­tain just over sev­enty illus­tra­tions — thanks to your sup­port.

Here is a small exam­ple of the cre­ative work sup­plied by our illus­tra­tors:



The next two weeks will be con­sumed by lay­out, and then we’ll move to deliv­ery.

Many thanks for your patience dur­ing the deliv­ery phase of our Kick­starter.

Regards,

– The Blade Team

If you have never com­mis­sioned art­work you have no idea how plea­sure­able it is to con­ceive of a char­ac­ter or scene and then see your idea inter­preted and made real by a tal­ented illus­tra­tor. Pure bliss. :)

Hi hkd­har­mon!

Yep, things are going well! As usual with these things, we creep along. All the art­work has of course be turned in by the artists and the lay­out team is now work­ing on the page spreads. They tell me that we should have some­thing nice to look at around the end of the month. This will of course neces­si­tate a round or two of adjust­ments. Then, once we are all happy the file will be uploaded to Dri­vethruRPG and a proof copy ordered for inspec­tion. Once that is done and approved then we can send out all the coupons to the Kick­starter back­ers and release the print books for sale.

Cheers!

Phil
