Book of Quests is into its final proofing stage. I'm hoping the files will be ready to send to the printer by the middle of the month, meaning that we can open for pre-orders. Book of Quests is 224 pages, fully indexed, and it will retail for $19 print version, $8 in PDF. You'll be able to buy both direct from us here.
Monster Island is still in production and will be a slightly bigger book, at about 256 pages ($24 print and $14 PDF). The print version will include a large, fold-out map of the island. There will be a bundle deal for buying both together and although they won't ship at the same time, we will ensure that we offer a one-for-both shipping charge so that you're not paying shipping twice.
The Annual Boden Summit
Every year, a few of us trek up to the arctic circle to spend a week at Pete's place, gaming, drinking, eating and generally struggling to survive Pete's fiendish attempts to kill us in his sauna. Its also Design Mechanism's chance for both its partners to meet up and discuss stuff. Pete and I will therefore be looking closely at the Kickstarter plans, the release schedule for the next 12 months, our own writing schedules, and a variety of other business-related areas. Its likely that this will produce a flurry of activity, so I hope to have a lot more March News.
Shores of Korantia
Jonathan Drake's epic sequel to 'Age of Treason' continues apace and Pete and I love what he's doing. This will be an excellent work.
Design Mechanism and Moon Design will be sharing a booth at Gencon 2013. Just the two of us, and in a decent location in the trade hall. We'll also have a couple of Very Special Guests, too - more on this as Gencon plans amass. But we look forward to seeing you in August. We'll have lots of things for sale...!
Pete and I will in Bacharach for EternalCon. This is one of our favourite venues and we look forward to catching up with the Bacharach Tribe, talking RQ, running games, and watching the utter silliness that is Hardcore German Trollball.
I've started the serious writing on this book, something I've been itching to do for years. I'll keep people abreast of the progress through these News posts, but don't expect a blog; I'm not much of a blogger...
More in March.
