Seas of Vodari - PDF Release & Updates
6 months ago – Thu, Feb 20, 2020 at 10:50:31 PM

Hey Backers!

The PDF is complete and weighs in at 268 pages. We're excited to finally be sending out the book and we're proud of what the team created. We also wanted to thank all of you who submitted feedback after reading the QuickStart versions of the book.

What's Next

  • We're going to start distributing v1 of the PDF to everyone tonight.
  • Once the PDF has been sent out, we'll send a feedback survey for you to complete if you notice a typo or a stat that looks off. We did our best to catch everything during our intense editing phase, but if you notice any errors - please help us out so we can make a change before it goes to the printer in early March.
  • Our printer located in Canada and our print turnaround time is 4 to 5 weeks. If we receive the books back from the printer on schedule, we'll ship the book in April.
  • We're going to start working on finishing up the add-ons and digital assets such as maps packs, digital tokens and character art, pregens, character sheets, ship character sheets, and anything else that was promised during the Kickstarter campaign.
  • An outline and various pieces of content are now complete for Under the Seas of Vodari. We're going to start working heavy on this PDF soon. Here is a short preview block about Under the Seas of Vodari (PDF)...

"For GMs and players who are interested in even more fun and adventure under the seas, Under the Seas of Vodari will be released in 2020. The book will provide undersea player options, equipment, locations, and an adventure. You’ll have everything you need to run a single session or an entire campaign set under the surface of the Vodari’s vast ocean."

Seas of Vodari - Book Update
6 months ago – Fri, Feb 07, 2020 at 02:58:09 PM

Hey Backers,

A few have you have reached out about dates, and I have been waiting to pull the trigger on this message until editing was complete. So here's an update on the book with dates!

Editing is Complete!

Editing for all 10 chapters is complete. We'll be completing some final proof-reading and minor fixes before sending the final chapter to layout on Monday.

Layout Completion Date

We anticipate the layout for the entire Seas of Vodari book will be completed on February 16th, 2020. Layout for 9 out of the 10 chapters of the book is already complete with final art, maps, etc.  

Seas of Vodari PDF 

Once layout is completed, we'll do a final read-through and send out the PDF to all of you the week of February 17th, 2020. We'll be locking addresses and pre-orders next week and then sending our print counts to our printer. So if you want to upgrade your order to include a hardcover version of the book or add anything else to your order, send a message via Kickstarter or email info@seasofvodari.com for anything order related.

Seas of Vodari Hardcover 

We want to let everyone have a chance to look at the PDF and submit any typos/errors before we send the PDF to the printer. The estimated turnaround time for printing is about 4 weeks, so we expect to be shipping the hardcover book, poster-size map, and any other physical add-ons in early April 2020. We will continue to provide updates on this date as we get closer to April.

Under the Seas of Vodari

We completed an outline for this PDF that was unlocked during the Kickstarter and have started working on this title. Once the Seas of Vodari PDF has shipped, expect regular updates and previews. 

That's it for now. Looking forward to sending this book to everyone soon!

Seas of Vodari - Book Update
7 months ago – Thu, Jan 23, 2020 at 02:14:16 AM

Hey Backers,

We're heads down finishing up the last bits of the book. I thought I'd surface to send a quick update.

  • Editing of Chapter 2 (A World to Explore) continues and the final editing of our final chapter is about halfway through. We're heading into the home stretch!
  • Tweaks and fine-tuning continues for the layout for the 9 other chapters, as we wait for the editing of the final chapter to be completed. While we were working on the layout for a few sections we found some areas that could use art, so we put in another art order. You can a preview of one of the most recent illustrations below. 
  • As mentioned in the last update, once the editing of Chapter 2 is complete, I'll be able to provide a date when the PDF will ship to backers and pre-orders.
For the magic chapter, we added an image of Zasali the half-elf tidal sorcerer casting a spell.
