Oh yes, and with 2 1/2 weeks to go, only a few hundred £ needed!

Kickstarter is a useful little money spinner once you know what to do with it and you have a fanbase.

Certainly with this one i won't end up with a penny if we exactly hit our target. However, our art costs will be met and the book will be published. You do have to do it right though!

Well great then! I'll buy a kickstarter copy and I'll cancel my Paizo pre-order with pleasure. My Paizo move was just on the excitation of the upcoming product, not knowing that a kickstarter was coming. Paizo is doing a great job but if this help you more by participating in the kickstarter, I'm in.

MountainPeak11, I got an email today on the status of the book. Below is the message.


Project Update #5: TEST COPIES!!!!

Despite a very long wait (Xmas and new year!) i now have the test copies!

The covers are not quite right, so the files will need to be tweaked, but they look fantastic. Once the covers are sorted i will order the full print run and so should be despatching books towards the end of next week!

Haha yes, I literally got this email about five minutes after I posted. They must've read my mind!

Blacksand should be now, and i assume you mean BtP, which will be available in a couple of months or so.
