This week's progress on the Dime Adventures Kickstarter has continued to be stong, despite unexpected work on the April Patreon release slowing us down a bit.
Most notably, this week we completed the initial layout of the core rulebook! This means that, aside from the few remaining backer characters, we know the page numbers and spacing of all the content that will be in the book! From here, however, we still have a good deal of work to do before the core rulebook is ready for release. We need to integrate the new artwork as it comes in, replace all the "see page XXX" placeholders with their final page numbers, generate the index and write a bit of filler material to make the page count work.
Getting to this stage also means that it is doubly important for us to work with our Character and Boss backers, in order to finalize their backer characters as soon as possible. This way to we can make sure that we have the space reserved for the characters in the layout. As it currently stands, we plan to split backer characters between the core rulebook, Ready-Made Heroes and the World's Fair adventure.
Finally, we continue to expect work on the April Patreon release to impact progress on the Kickstarter, both next week and the week after. This is not ideal, but it is necessary to meet our obligations to all of our fans and customers. We do not expect it to impact the release date of the core rulebook, which is still on track.
Here is a bulleted list of everything we've accomplished in the past week.
