While our layout and editing teams, plushie seamstress, and dice maker are all hard at work to complete things so we can ship them out, our friend at Black Pine Publishing has been hard at work on a project they're releasing through us - Paragon! - and it just launched earlier today.

It's the final countdown...

We appreciate your patience; I know this project has drawn on a lot longer than anticipated. But we are in the final stretch. The dice are nearly completed. The plushies are in production by our new seamstress as of last week. There's been some staff illness and tech troubles but we're back on track now. ASPS is in layout and *should* be complete before month's end! Keepsakes has a second editor going over the document beginning next week, so should be in layout in early April.

I hope you've all had a chance to look over the ASPS text only file we sent via Backerkit after the last update. The finished book will of course look prettier but the game is all there if you're impatient to dive in! And here's a peek at the character sheet! We'll have a form-fillable version available on our website in the next week or so.

We have a new project coming up here on Kickstarter in a few weeks; feel free to follow along if you're interested in a racial supplement for use with D&D 5e: The Paragon Project 

Development on Paragon has utilised a different team, so ASPS and Keepsakes work have not been impacted by Paragon's production. About half the writing is already complete, and art well underway, so fulfilment for Paragon will be much swifter than we've had on this one too. (Apologies again for the extended time this has taken us!)

If you want to see ASPS in action, tune in to our Twitch channel Thursdays at 8pm EST where our CEO plays GM for a campaign of Fox Magic while testing new features and races that will be available in 2nd edition, currently in development. The 1st edition of Fox Magic is available on Indie Press Revolution, Drive-Thru RPG, and our company website.

ASPS is through editing! While it heads to layout to make it all pretty with art and proper page numbering, credits, and etc - all you ASPS backers have been sent a text only copy so you can dig in while you wait for the completed book! Been a long time coming, I know, but now you have at least a version of the game in hand to start with while we work to get you the finished product. <3 So check your emails!

Keepsakes backers, don't despair. The editor had some technology setbacks but is working hard to complete it soon, and we just brought on new seamstresses so the plushies will be completed soon and we'll be able to share pics of them then.

Happy New Year!

We hope your holiday season was a pleasant one, no matter what you celebrate!

ASPS is almost ready for layout. Our editor just graduated last month, which slowed things down briefly while they handled those arrangements and celebratory events. Things are back to full speed, with finishing touches being given to the sample settings to finalise them. Here's a peek at one of the maps:

We should definitely have a text only version we can release to you by month's end, as long as nothing else untoward arises while layout gets to work on adding the art and making it all look pretty. 

Keepsakes is a bit behind where we'd hoped to be. Our editor on that has had some life things that took precedence, and a recent computer issue that lost a chunk of the edits so they're now going back through the files to redo that. Hopefully we'll be back on track with that soon! 

Happy American Turkey Day
