Title: BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules
Post by: Vile on January 14, 2017, 10:48:57 PM
I expect the Kickstarter to fund the internal art for the BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules will launch in early February (after I get back from my Chinese New Year holiday).

I thought I'd ask here, as I respect your opinion: What do you think of this Kickstarter video, created with the help of boardmember Alex Karaczun of Mischief Inc.? Would it get you to pledge your life savings?  ;D

I'm glad you have Alex helping out! He knows how to run a good kickstarter. I don't know if I've ever had a kickstarter fulfilled as fast as his. The Dark Naga one was super quick too. I liked the video. It won't get me to pledge my life savings ;) but I'll definitely be backing. I thing y'all picked out some great art pieces, and the music was fitting. Great work! Looking forward to the kickstarter!

Yes, I certainly will. It will take me a few days to finalise it.

We're live! And we funded Russ Nicholson already! But we need to hit those other stretch goals to fill up all that white space in the book, so please consider pledging - or, if you're not that interested in awesome art in my book, maybe tell a friend or two. :)

Nice, I've backed. How many pages will the rules be? just curious if it is big enough to seem worth it to up to the hardback?

115 pages counting foreword, table of contents, and that sort of stuff. Of course it's worth it! Just look at what's in there!

Art by Bradley K. McDevitt - I prepaid for this because I want you to up your pledge.  :P

Chris Holmes himself gave this to me, and he proofread the manuscript, and he told me all about gaming with his dad, and he wrote the aforementioned foreword. I feel it would be an insult to the man not to pledge your life's savings to this project.

 ;D

If it'll make you feel better, Chris Holmes has agreed to also illustrate an octocat for the book. What's an octocat, you ask? Well, obviously it's a large feline with six legs and two tentacles sprouting from its shoulders. What else would it be?  8)

We've almost passed the last stretch goal for interior art. Up next are 6 illustrated character sheets by James V. West.
