Has their been an announcement when the Kick goes live?
 

No, sir. When I am satisfied with the level of completed work versus uncompleted work, I will have a better idea of the exact launch date. Right now I am still estimating early March. Writing is done, editing is underway, and art / maps have been rolling in. I'm very happy with the progress, but I want more before officially declaring a launch date.

Best,
Jeff T.

I wish more Kickstarter creators were this responsible. The 2e Kickstarter exceeded my expectations and I'm eager to see what you have in the works.

Well, if you're anything like me, or if you were in my shoes, you might be thinking that the last Kickstarter was imperfect. You see, I forecasted July, so I announced August, but I didn't start fulfillment until mid-October. With a 600-page book, there were so many variables to manage, that even with my super-organized plan, stuff happened. I understand and appreciate that most folks feel that when a Kickstarter is 6-8 weeks overdue, it is actually early. But when it's my own project, I have greater expectations, and tardiness (my own, to be clear) drives me nuts.

That's why you are the Adamantine/Mithril/Oricalcum/Dwarf Star Alloy Standard of RPG Kickstarter people.

Best there is.

I originally read this as "Adamant" - owners of the infamous six-years-late Far West Kickstarter - and I almost had a stroke. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/stoned.png

Anyway, your praise of Jeff is more than merited. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Re: HYPERBOREA: Beasts and Cannibals

Yes, Ghul's Kickstarters are an insta-buy and one that I have no worries that it will be fulfilled.


What? Me worry?

Re: HYPERBOREA: Beasts and Cannibals

Whenever I see the announcement of a new Kickstarter by Sine Nomine Publishing or North Wind Adventures, I know it's gonna go well ;)

Re: HYPERBOREA: Beasts and Cannibals

Totally stoked for this kickstarter. I will definitely support. Really like the cover for the Anthropophagi one. Can't wait!

That never occurred to me---there are light years of difference in quality between Jeff and Gareth Skarka---professionally, personally, and on every other measurable standard of "decent human being."

I should have known francisca wouldn't insult Jeff that way. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Wow that was quick... just submitted that illo this weekend!

Del, that picture is amazing. So freaking good.

Gosh, thanks Handy. Glad you liked it... there are a few more in the pipe that should make this module pop!

And... I agree with all the previous sentiments... There is hardly a publisher out there that treats his Artists as well as Jeff, and his kickstarters are top notch! Not to mention the totally kick ass community beyond the north wind.
