We're wrapping up editing and cartography, AC, then we'll be heading off to layout.  Should be out around the first week of November if the printer's not too busy.

Yes, but none immediately good, unfortunately:  my work schedule's had me travelling a lot, and we've had some personal issues to deal with (we had another miscarriage, our third for the year).  So, dealing with all of that has put me behind schedule on Tower of Blood editing.

It's not likely that ToB will be available by the end of the month, but it is possible.  I hope to wrap up the editing this weekend, but may not be able to do so since I'm travelling for work again on Saturday to DC.  The maps are mostly done and should be wrapped up soon.  The layout guy's anxiously awaiting the final text, since he's got the time to jump right into layout as soon as I'm finished with the text.  

ToB is most likely to be available by early December rather than by Thanksgiving, but Thanksgiving's not 100% impossible, it's just not very likely.  I'm sorry for the delays, but I've had more important things to be juggling in the past few weeks.

Hang in there, Allan.  I know it's not easy going through what you've been dealing with.

Sorry to hear that Allan. That's always a hard one to get over. We'll keep you in our prayers for the next time.


Futures Bright,

Paul

Al - hang in there dude - nobody is THAT bothered about the release as long as it gets here man! some things in life are far more important and everything else dwarfs in comparison.

hope things all work out and you have plenty of support from friends here and elsewhere - don't forget that!

anyone else who moans, just let me know and they will get a slap  :P

Al

The module can certainly wait.  

Take care, Allan and family.

There are things more important so don't feel bad putting gaming related stuff on the back burner. Sorry to hear about it and hoping for better news in the future.

Man, too bad about Bottle City.  Have you guys considered asking for donations to cover the prodution costs?  I'd be willing to shell out quite a bit to see that thing published.  I don't like the pdf/CD idea at all.

I'll talk to Rob about it more.  He's losing interest in the sponsorship model, I think, but if you guys are still good with that concept, I'll see what we can work out.

I don't know what the price point production breaks are but I would prefer a printed copy as well.  It might be worth while to offer it up at whatever cost and see how many takers you get and just print that many and do CDs for the rest.
