Got Book -- Now How About A PDF?

Recommended Posts

I got my Book today! Woot. Comparing it to the CAV: SO preview PDF I see that the book went through some MAJOR rethinking.

 

//Graphic design is much better by the way. //

 

So now, what about a PDF version? Thoughts? Plans? Will come free for KS backers?

I'm still waiting for my book. Tracking site still says they've been notified. Been acweek. UPS is generally better than this. :-(

Mine came in today.

 

The tracking info never updated because after UPS MI got it they created a new tracking number. I figured that out this morning while examining the details on the tracking page for the original tracking number. I saw a number called the "Parcel ID" and tried using that as the tracking number and WOILA! "Your package is out for Delivery"!

Ordered mine yesterday along with some extra toys that may cause a spin order. Since I placed it on a friday I don't expect a tracking number until tuesday.

Infantry and a butcher to round out my malvernis forces. They said they were in stock, (meaning alreadycast?) I'm not worried though, just excited to get the book in hand.

Full week for my order to go out the door. But I put in three CAV that more than likely caused a spin order. Hopefully, they're getting caught back up.

I placed my order on Tuesday, but as far as USPS tells me, it's gotten no farther than "Shipping label created". ::(: Oh well, it's not like I'm going to have time to really read through it for a couple weeks anyway!

So, I ordered mine on the 14th. Apparently, it was shipped through a UPS service that partners with USPS for delivery. In my case, it does not seem to be working particularly well.

 

According to the tracking information, it was initially routed to the wrong local post office, but the tracking info noted the error and indicated that they were re-routing it to the correct locale. It made to my neighborhood post office yesterday morning and was "out for delivery" as of 7:30 a.m. . But it was never delivered, and at 11:40 last night, tracking showed it had been received at another post office 100 miles from me -- which appears to be the distribution center for the local one that it mistakenly sent to in the first place!! Arrgghh!

Yeah, not sure what I think of the partnering setup. Reaper rocks. UPS MI not so much.

      I created a single scenario mission for low level rangers based on the "The Dungeon" books from Loke Battlemats. Since here are some rosd players and backers of that kickstarter I thought I'd share it. No clue how large the overlap is. Anyhow, C&C welcome, reports of how it went also.
       
      I played it with two players (GF and I). We had a close, but successful, mission with level 0 and level 1 rangers. I would say tough adventure, and mid level ranger around level 5 might also be fine.

      I took this idea directly from DMGInfo and put a couple small twists to it based on what my home game players might like. Plus, I think they make pretty cool props for a dungeon that might be a library or wizard tower or whatever. It's an experiment, so the execution is a little sloppy on some of them, but I learned a lot so if I ever decide to do a new set (which I likely will) I can take what I learned to make a much better finished product. 
       
      I started with craft sticks(popsicle sticks) cut into 1cm x 7mm pieces and used a cereal box for the book covers. On some of them, I cut up bits of the cereal box to add dimension. Superglue to keep it all together. 

       

       

       

       
      In hindsight the cereal box I used was pretty cheap and wanted to warp and split into layers. Next time I may use a thin chipboard, or card stock.
       
       
       

       
      Here they are all primed up, ready for paint. 
       

       

      Some of the designs are just decorative, while others are leather straps and buckles that bind the whole book, metallic corners to help "protect" the covers' corners, etc.

       
      I apologize for the dreadful lighting on these. I used the same acrylic paints I use on my minis. Next time I'll use craft paint because craft paints are thicker and go on thicker, which you definitely want. Spent a lot of time waiting for layers to dry. 
       
      I used metallics for the raised bits on the finished ones above and I am pretty happy with the first set. 
       
      The second set will have some more ambitious designs such as reptile scale book covers and:

       

      an eye sculpted out of green stuff! The more I use it, the more I love it. It allows me to add all sorts of little details to things as well as fill gaps.
       
       
      I'll post the finished shots once I get the last of them painted up. 
       
      I hope you enjoyed this and are inspired to craft your own props for your dungeons/games. Happy Crafting!

      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      Saw about this via Black Magic Craft.
      31 Euro shipping for rest of the world will probably rule me out. I'm not sure I can find value in 85 euro all in for books and templates. That's a lot of supplies (I dont have room for).
