It took most of my spare time for the last two-and-a-half years, in-between home repair, job hunting, and a new baby, but now I’m proud to announce that Corporia is finally finished and available for sale as a digital PDF on DriveThruRPG.com! (If you were a Kickstarter backer at the $15 or higher level, you received a private Kickstarter message earlier this week giving you a special link for a free download.)
The press files have been uploaded to the printer, and barring any problems I should get the limited edition hardcovers shipped to me sometime in April, ready to mail to Kickstarter backers in May as expected. I’ve also sent the remaining (print) stretch goal to presss – the quick reference card/bookmark for Knight-level and higher backers! Don’t picture a playing card, though! It’s actually a full-color, two-sided 4″ by 8″ rack card on 80-lb card stock, so you don’t have to squint while reading it!
I do still have several digital reach and stretch goals to complete over the next few days, weeks, and months. The character dossier, for instance, is scheduled for March release and is nearly complete now. None of the other goals had defined release dates, so I’ll knock those out as soon as I can.
Of course, what kind of writer would I be if I weren’t filling up every spare moment of time I could find? A sane one, probably. But since I’m not, you’ll also be able to see my work in the upcoming Baker Street RPG, currently with 71 hours remaining on Kickstarter! Once they reach $30,000 (and I’ve no doubt they will, since they’re at over $26,000 now), I’ll come on board to write an extra adventure for the book. I’m been a devoted Sherlock Holmes fan since I was an grimy unwashed moppet dashing over the cobbled streets of old London town (or thereabouts), so I’m very excited to be a part of this project. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you can do so at the link above.
I’ve also updated the Brabblemark Press website! If you’ve visited the site before, you’ll also see that I’ve redesigned it! Not that there was anything wrong with the previous version – a friend of mine and I spent a bit of time designing it in advance of the Kickstarter launch, and it looked great, but with my time so constrained I needed a new template that would be easy for my novice web skills to update without having to learn any new programs or deal with FTP and such. So that’s good news for me, and everyone else who’d like to see the site updated on a regular basis! The latest update adds some media links to older podcast interviews, if you have some time on your hands in the car and want to know more about Corporia that I haven’t covered elsewhere.
So keep your sword swinging, and I’ll see you next time!
