Life is a bit up and down at the moment. We’ve moved house into a rented property, getting reconnected to the digital age (t’internet and telly) pretty painlessly within the first five days. Meanwhile D101 HQ looked like the D-Day landings, which the demolition team in full flow, with a huge hole in the ground where our Garage used to be that stretches into the Garden. Saying that I’m smug that we moved out is an understatement. However its had a huge impact in slowing the impetus of D101. Notice the words ‘slowing’ not ‘stopped’ 🙂 Even though time is even more tight than before I’m still getting D101 stuff worked on, usually at crazy o’clock at night!
Milestones this month
River of Heaven first draft complete and cover completed! Congrats to Jon
Empires Rising – half way through layout, on for a Oct release (Furnace woohoo!)
The Company – Final check in progress, early Oct release.
Crypts and Things -Final stages of production entered 🙂
Monkey and OpenQuest are now available in print over at DriveThruRpg.com – Much better quality than Lulu ever produced, and better shipping costs and times. Moving d101’s catalogue over will continue over the next couple of months, but all new books will be via DriveThruRpg.com.
Book of Glorious Joy is done and dusted, release any second now 🙂
My overaim is to have all the D101 developers in a big group shoot with big grins clutching their books at Dragonmeet, where you will be able to buy these new books.
This batch of releases is quite significant for D101. It should effectively double or even treble the steady baseline of sales that we get from our current crop of games. Which means the dream of me going full time with this (there’s a D101 office in the new extension 😉 ) takes one huge step forward.
