Random stuff from the Godsfall crew

Cover2

Hey, people! Here is where are as of tonight:

With the help of Kraken Print, we have figured out how to print both the books and the World Maps and are locking down a timetable to get them printed, delivered, packaged and shipped. We are also working with BackerKit to setup a final fulfillment store that will allow Kickstarter backers to do the following:

  • Confirm their address for physical shipments and their email for digital shipments.
  • Upgrade their original pledges (if they choose) at the original Kickstarter prices.
  • Once all of our Kickstarter backers are accounted for, we will open up the BackerKit store for pre-orders as we prepare the Worldbook hardcovers for shipment (Kickstarter backers get their orders filled and shipped first).
  • We are very near completion of the .pdf and are going over final edits now. Here is a preview of the long awaited Divinites section of the Worldbook (pdf download), an explanation of how those divinities work in a D&D game, and the abilities of the God of Fire.

The second I am sure the Worldbook is fully edited and wrapped I will be releasing the .pdf to everyone. I know this has taken much longer than I anticipated and I truly appreciate the patience you all have shown. It has been quite a learning experience for me, and being diagnosed with sudden onset rheumatoid arthritis smack in the middle of production has not helped matters.

I can promise you it’ll be worth the wait and that I am taking the time to ensure this book is as perfect as I can possibly make it. Thank you for your support.

Hello, people!

We have made a lot of progress this month on the Godsfall Worldbook, including wrapping the final front and back cover layout!

We have also nearly wrapped our massive Divinites chapter and are adding final artwork and edits now. Here are a few examples pages:

We are currently working with our printer (Kraken Print) on finalizing print details and schedule so we can figure out exactly when the print copies and world maps will ship. We are also working with BackerKit to setup an online store to allow Kickstarter backers to upgrade their pledges if they choose, and allow everyone to easily update their contact information and track their pledge shipments.

You can also download an image-only version of the Worldbook Cover as a desktop background:

As soon as everything is working will be posting it to godsfall.com/worldbook. Stay tuned!

Hello people!

As we finalize, print and ship the Godsfall Worldbook, I’ll be posting often to keep everyone in the loop of exactly where we are in the process of fulfilling our Kickstarter pledges and getting your books and maps to you so we can all adventure in the world of Khalgun!

  • Layout: The Races, History, People and Magic Items chapters are wrapped and in final review. My editors are tackling the massive Divinities section now to weed out any final bugs or errors, and as soon as they are done we have the layout ready for the text. Once we are sure we have this right, the .PDF will immediately go out to all backers.
  • Printer: My brother and I are meeting with our printer (Kraken Print) June 2nd so we can schedule printing and shiping the hardcover editions and maps. As soon as we have that locked down, I’ll post the timetable here.
  • Into the Ironwood: We have the first draft of our first Godsfall adventure written and playtested, and once the Worldbook is wrapped and on its way I will record and edit the audio tracks and lay out all the bonus maps and artwork every backer will be getting for FREE!

Final design and layout of the book is in progress. In addition to the book preview, we also have a gallery of original Worldbook art on display and will post continue updates as we take preorders and prepare the Worldbook, maps and character sheets for print.

In additional to the original races, Divinities, maps, artwork, magic items, creatures and optional rules of the Worldbook, Kickstarter backers and preorders will be receiving a free .pdf of the first official Godsfall supplement: Into the Ironwood.

In this adventure, you’ll follow Aramil and a band of highly-skilled Elven Guardians as they search for the reason behind the rash of intrusions by Yeti descending from the Spine of the World. The adventure includes original maps, character sheets and art detailing the woods and mountains of Brenus’s Northern Peninsula.

Additionally, we’ll be recording every paragraph of descriptive text as full audio clips with the same production and sound effects as the podcast.

 Character Sheet

The young Wild-Elf Rina Falaval was an apprentice of her cousin Aramil, himself graced with the Divinity of Speed. He knew of her abilities (they manifested before his own) and was ordered by the Elder Hagint to keep knowledge of them closely guarded.

While tailing one of their own (their cousin Sebouh) who had fled the tribe and the forest along with several stolen jars of magical tracking dust, Rina and Aramil were teleported to the Union, summoned by its powerful magics.

She had not been chosen for this journey and appeared only because she made contact with Aramil, unknowingly forging a bridge between their Divinities. In the instant he was summoned the connection flared stronger, and she was pulled along as well.

Thus when Aramil was returned to the Ironwood, Rina found herself left behind with new friends and trapped within the towering walls of Barros’s great Union.

 Character Sheet

Pera was the middle child of three siblings: his older brother Daryl, older sister Irene and younger sister, Phoenix. His older brother was slaughtered while the two of them were piloting the family’s grain barge along the wide, lackadaisical river that connected his hometown of Hogsfeet with the trading capital of Grainhill.

They were attacked by Cyril Avantis and several armed men and women. Pera was knocked unconscious and recalls little of the encounter; his last memory was of his brother being run through by Cyril. He awoke sometime later locked in a small room in a warehouse owned by Baron Leflure.

He was there for less than two days when Dorro Knott crossed his path. Unaware that Pera was also a young Godling (and ignorant of his own latent abilities), the Halfling rogue freed him but had little interest in forming a friendship. While they escaped they were set upon by Leflure and his men, and felt the painful grip of Cyril’s Divinity of Order.

In that moment, Pera was saved by a Dwarf named Torrvic Wildtongue who blundered upon the scene, and Dorro who was suddenly made aware of his ability to teleport. The three of them ended up miles away from their back alley, drenched in the bay of Port Bliss.

 Character Sheet

Torrvic led a simple life as an armor smith in a small village nestled close to the eastern side of the Voiceless Peaks. One night he was surrounded by a swarm of bats who whispered to him, telling him that he was chosen to be the one to “cast out the darkness.” When the swarm left he found a onyx claw on a thin silver chain, placed around his neck in the chaos.

It was also the first time he saw the White Wolf.

It was a massive, ivory creature that howled from peak to cliff, guiding Torrvic South and then North across the Valley of the Feats until reaching Port Bliss. There Torrvic met others with powers like his and joined in their quest while earning the enmity of Baron Henry Lafleur and Cyril Avantis.

Lord Haldir Loran is a High-Elf from the mountain enclave of Rylend and was training as a young mage when the Godswar broke out. Even before the planet was shattered, he heard dark whispers emanating from somewhere beyond the known realm.

In the aftermath his schoolmates and teachers were aghast to find that magic had left them as the Weave itself had been torn asunder in the great war. Haldir was shocked that he alone was able to call upon his arcane powers, and that they had only grown in strength since the sundering.

Learning the truth behind his abilities and meeting his benefactor for the first time, Haldir was gifted several items that mask his thoughts, actions and alignment, along with the golden lion trinkets that serve as friends and loyal defenders.

Fully in tune with his new abilities and sent forth by a royal decree (and a trio of Elven Fogcutters), Haldir seeks to influence the politics of Ani and, if needed, usurp its new Queen.
