The May Check-in
Alright, last month has been a busy one full of printing and layout, so lets get this started!
To start off, we’ve migrating our emails to @metalweavegames.com , makes us a little more official and its not that expensive of a migration ($5/mo via google, and we were able to move everything from email@example.com)
Simply put, we have new emails but if you use our old one, they get automatically forwarded to the right ones. :)
The platform has expanded and is looking better than ever. In addition, over the past weeks I’ve added quite a few more publishers and products for people to engage with. All we’re looking for now is you to join in and help build our own community.
Whats Roleplay Cafe? its a new social media platform that we built. Think Facebook meets DRPG, but with more attention to creating spaces for creators of all kinds.
Note: SSL certification is in the works. In addition we expect the beginnings of the storefront (the buy button actually allowing you to buy product on the platform) to start kicking in around next 1-2 months.
Join the Community
Finally!! All files are with the printer and things are moving. This has honestly been the biggest print job we’ve done to date and it encapsulates three different Kickstarter projects, from Embers of the Forgotten Kingdom, Atlas Animalia, the Atlas Beast Deck, and the Baby Bestiary Reprint (1, 2 and the collectors edition). Just a ton of things that have kept me really busy on the little details.
If you’re looking to get your hands on any of the products getting printed (with exception to the beast deck, still need to make a commercial price for it) we have a Backerkit pre-order store open for you to get in with the backer shipments.
Embers PDF Release
Its almost been two years since we launched our the Embers Kickstarter and wow its been a long journey.
I’m glad to say the book is finally done and work on the statbooks is in order.
If you’re looking for something that will make your players think Dark Souls, I highly recommend checking it out.
French Baby Bestiary
The time has come and our friends at Black Book Editions is crowdfunding the French translation of the Baby Bestiary.
Both volumes will be compressed into a single book (using the volume 1 cover) and have a slipcase using the volume 2 cover.
Thanks to our Baby Bestiary Reprint Kickstarter we finally have the contacts to make some amazing owlbear minis, and the result so far has been amazing. You can get these as part of the production pre-order link above.
If you’re wondering what the mystery beast is (you didn’t hear it from me, but it’s a phase kitten)
Atlas Creature Deck Design
I’m really proud how the design for this came out and just put it here to show off how cool it is. Thank you Sarah Dahlinger for the amazing work to make these awesome pins.
So, first off we still have to ship you your books. Secondly is getting the stat books done and out, we are working on these for both Atlas and Embers.
In terms of future projects we surveyed you guys last moth to see what you’d be interested in, and it appears the Culture Guide came out in front.
That said, I havent started any work on it as I may have landed an awesome video game IP license to convert into a tabletop setting (end of June/early July I hope to have a concrete announcement, but you never know with these kinds of things.)
So for the moment I’m focusing on getting all our current obligations out, while waiting to see what my near future holds.
In the realm of the Baby Bestiary, I think our next project will be a children’s book (we actually have 2 slated out),
