BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Kickstarter
« on: March 11, 2017, 07:26:05 AM »
At long last! Everything is almost ready for the launch of the Kickstarter that will fund the interior art for the BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules. Still waiting for a couple of quotations to come in from artists, then I need to do the maths, and push the "go" button - probably in early April. You can have a look at the preview here:

Thanks, Dizzy. :)

I can't wait myself, it's been a long road (though fun for the most part).

Yeah, I clicked to get notice when it goes live. I'll be tossing some money in.

"Maester" pledge levels for the hardback are almost gone - these are ultra-cheap and won't be repeated. Still some "Journeymanne" levels left for the softcover. Once these are gone there are other options, but they will be at higher pledge levels to stop me from going too far into the red. :)

There is a thread about the BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules Art Kickstarter on The Big Purple now - if anyone wants to help push op the funding for more material, posting there is a good way to raise the visibility of the KS: https://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?801514-Blueholme-and-Holmes-Basic-D-amp-D

No, this just means I make more. The good news for everyone who is throwing shekels (sterlings, guineas, whatever) during the KS is that all that extra stuff comes free. :)

We have almost funded the Referee Repository, next up are the Explorer Encounters!

haha. Don't worry, mate. I'm in no major rush ;)

you know, PDFs are good and all, but in my simple oldskool mind, a PDF just can't beat a proper dead version of a book.

I know I'll get the stuff when it is 100% ready, can't wait for the PDF-link to arrive, and I'm so looking forward to it. Mayhaps I can even get some people to play with around a real table and not "just" on roll20 :D

I hope you found my GB£0.01 useful ;)

Well, one advantage of having such a crazy number of artists working on the book is that they'll be finished pretty soon. You won't have to wait very long for your PDF. I have a sort-of timetable here for those not following the campaign: https://dreamscapedesign.net/2017/05/03/the-journeymanne-cometh/

I really hope some people will actually run it through its paces in PDF form, though, because you can't beat actual play for errata-checking. I just know that as soon as I send out the PoD books, some bright spark will sot an entire page that's upside-down, or a saving throw that should be 13 instead of 14 ...  :-\

Vile, congrats on the successful kickstarter! Can't wait to start looking over the .pdfs once they're released.
