Did you feel that shift? As civilization ended and began a new age in the Weird Wastelands, we have entered the post-Kickstarter era on this book! Thank you all SO MUCH for your support on this project! You have blown us away with your enthusiasm, and we can’t wait to finish developing it and share it with you.

The Kickstarter may be over, but our work is just getting started! We wanted to share what the next steps on the project are from here on out.

Backerkit

Backerkit will be live on or before JULY 25th and you will be able to increase your pledge or add on anything you like! Late pledges will also be open at that time.

Writing and Art

Writing for this project is already underway by Jim, Pruitt, and Emma! We are working with Celeste Conowitch and the rest of the 2CGaming team for mentoring and editing as we continue to develop the project. Art needs are currently being scoped, and, thanks to your support of our final stretch goal, we are going to be able to do a LOT to bring incredible post-apocalyptic visuals to our pages! We will give you regular updates on our progress, with updates coming out every four to five weeks at minimum.

Our next Kickstarter update will be in mid to late August.

Thank you again! As always, if you have any questions about the project or about anything we do at Web DM, don’t hesitate to contact us via comments, Kickstarter messages, or social media/YouTube.

May the dice ever roll in your favor,

– Web DM and 2CGaming

Art Update Stretch Goal UNLOCKED!!
about 1 year ago – Sat, Jul 10, 2021 at 04:11:43 AM

Holy WOW, we’ve hit our final stretch goal! Thank you all SO MUCH for your help in making this project the very, very best it can be! With this goal unlocked, we’re increasing our art budget and artist compensation by 20%! This book is going to be BEAUTIFUL, and it’s all thanks to you. OMG.

Thank you all so much for getting us here. This project has soared past all our hopes and dreams, and we are so thrilled that y’all share our enthusiasm for it.

Hope to see all of you at our closeout end-of-Kickstarter party on Sunday from 6–8pm Eastern time on our YouTube channel! Come hang out, ask questions, and share the last few moments before we enter the strange new post-Kickstarter world.

Thank you again,

BIG Announcements - Party Invitation, Deluxe Cover Artist, and FINAL Stretch Goal!
about 1 year ago – Sat, Jul 10, 2021 at 02:50:12 AM

Hello there, weirdos!

How’s it going? It’s been a minute, and that’s because we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to finalize some details for y’all!

First up, we would like to invite all of you to join us for a LIVE end-of-Kickstarter party on YouTube on Sunday, July 11, from 6–8pm Eastern time.We’ll be hanging out with some special guests, taking your questions, and experiencing the last few minutes of what is honestly the most significant project Web DM has ever undertaken. We’ll be live on our main YouTube channel. Please join us—we’re here because of you! Follow the event here: https://youtu.be/GfTjoltbrd8


Second, we have a HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT we’ve been anxiously anticipating and are finally ready to share!

As stated on the Kickstarter page, our deluxe edition books will have an alternate cover. That alternate cover will be painted by one of our very favorite fantasy artists of all time, WAYNE REYNOLDS! Mr. Reynolds has created art for so many tabletop RPGs, including D&D, Pendragon, Pathfinder, and Judge Dredd, and other games and media such as Magic: The Gathering and Judge Dredd comic books. His art, especially the art for Dark Sun, was a major part of our formative gaming years, and he has always been one of our very favorite artists. We are absolutely thrilled to be working with him and look forward to sharing his creation with backers as soon as we can!

Wayne Reynolds, Artist

And finally, we have our FINAL STRETCH GOAL to announce!

Thank you all for your suggestions! It’s encouraging to us that so many of your requests are for things we’re already planning on including in the book—there are gonna be a LOT of tables, mechanical support for weather, guidelines on how to “weird up” supplemental monsters, unique materials and properties, crafting and salvage info, mutation tables (we’re calling it “warp” in this book), and info on other post-apocalyptic biomes. These are all things you requested and all things that are happening, stretch goal or no!

We wanted our final stretch goal to improve the project for every single backer, and we wanted to be able to involve more creators in the community and take advantage of the opportunity to spread the love. So that’s why we’ve decided on this for our final goal:

We’ve got a few days left, and we’re confident we can hit this goal, especially if we have your help! Please share our project with your gaming communities, friends, and family. This is our first project, and as it ends, we want to reach as many people as we can and let them know about our vision for what 5e can be.

Thank you for all your help! We’ll be updating again soon!
