Quick update on all the Adventures Campaign stuff:
Seclusium and Adventure #10 (the 64 page bonus) are out the door and delivered.
Broodmother has the base layout done and is now in the art phase. It will be a 96 page book.
Horror Among Thieves is now called Forgive Us and will include 2 bonus mini-adventures in the book. Kelvin Green says: "Horror Among Thieves is now called Forgive Us. The text of the main adventure and one of the bonus adventures is done; the second bonus adventure will be getting a polish this weekend. There are three bits of art to do and I hope to have at least two of those done this weekend too. Then it's complete, aside from layout." Since writing that a few days ago, he reports that the text of the second adventure is done.
Rob Conley has turned in 10000 words of his English Civil War Sandbox adventure, so that's progressing as well.
Brockie has turned in a 10k word version of Towers Two, but has been filling it out slowly so as to make it a fleshed-out adventure and not barebones.
So everything is progressing, but unfortunately, slower than we'd like. I realize we're closing in on a year since they were supposed to be delivered, but I'm actually more confident now, at this moment, that they'll all happen and be damn cool and worth the wait, than at any time since they first funded. All I can do is apologize about the tardiness.
Update from Brockie:
"Hey you guys, here is a link to a full list of shows on our fall tour. Anyone who contributed to Towers Two (and is still waiting for me to finish it), and is planning on coming to see GWAR this fall, PLEASE hit me up at email@example.com and I will hook you up with a couple of free tickets. It's the least I can do for being over a half a year late on this thing. If you don't see your town on the list don't despair, we will be adding plenty more shows over the course of the next year.http://www.metalblade.com/us/news/gwar-announces-gigantic-fall-tour/ "
(publisher's note: I assume, as in the past, the offer does not apply to the festival dates marked with *)
Seclusium is in!
Those of you who pledged at the Collector's Pack or Faithful levels should have a PDF coupon code for that book. Check the email you used to sign up here, check the spam folder, if you still don't see it let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Broodmother, Horror Among Thieves, and Towers Two are still in various stages of production... sorry again for these delays.
(sorry for machine-gunning the updates, but Brockie wishes to clarify that the ticket offer does not include festivals)
Update from Brockie, Part II:
But I have a final offering to you patient fellows and felines who paid good cash just to suffer in my death mazes (or get the meet and greet…I did finally get all of you right?)…I am hereby formally awarding everybody who contributed to this project a FREE pair of tickets to the next GWAR show in your area, and seeing as our new album is out this fall, and a huge tour starts after that, and then we’re gonna go around the world, there is a good chance you will be able to catch GWAR. Hell, we’ll even give James some tickets, if we ever get to Finland. Now this is not another “meet and greet”, just some tix to the sickest band in history, as a way of saying thanks for being so patient. Awww! He really does care about his fans…and I do! But more than anything I care about getting this dungeon done. Whats fucked me up were little projects like writing an entire new GWAR album and going to Russia for three weeks to research a novel/spoken word project…but now those projects are over with and I can focus on this one. For a little while anyway, the clock is ticking!
All you have to do to claim your ticket is email me directly at email@example.com when you see GWAR is coming to town. Send along a copy of your receipt or something that lets me know you aren’t trying to fool old Dave! I will be happy to hook you up, and who knows, maybe enjoy a cold beverage as you tell me how awesome “Towers Two” ended up being.
Enough palaver. Back to the salt mines…and the hideous secrets of The Towers Two.
(Publisher’s note: this free GWAR concert ticket offer is from Brockie and while we’ll confirm with him who is and is not a backer of this project, LotFP is otherwise not a party to this offer.)
