As for Trinity Continuum: Aberrant itself – we’re headed into the last week for its Kickstarter, and as our experienced KS backers know: that’s when things get hot!

So far, it has been great seeing people’s passion for the original get rekindled by our Trinity Continuum edition. That’s one of the most satisfying moments our team can get – so thanks to all of you who’ve posted about loving what we’re doing!

It really does mean a lot to all of us to recreate a classic game line while still hitting those touch-points that made the first edition a classic.

Kind of along the same line, since we announced that we won’t be having a booth at GenCon 2019 we’ve received more than a few worried messages from folks who, we guess, haven’t read this blog since the beginning of the year.

That’s when I first started talking about how this year is one where the initiatives we’ve been undertaking will start to take off. It’s a year where the company’s ongoing and continual evolution will start to be more overt, with us not necessarily doing things the way we have been since 2012, or even further back when a bunch of us were part of White Wolf.

Not having a booth at GenCon 2019 is part of that evolution. Does it still make sense for us to exert soooo much effort, to bring so many people, to spend so much money, versus taking those amounts of effort, personnel, and cash, and dividing them up through the entire year at different venues?

Especially with our good sales partners at Indie Press Revolution and Studio2 having booths where folks can buy our stuff. With us still having panels where we can chat with attendees face to face. And with our online media allowing us to talk with more and more people every week.

We won’t know until we do it, so we’re doing it. We’ll let you know how it turns out!

The convention starts, for us, next Wednesday, so I’ll be posting this blog next Monday with a few more Gen Con thoughts and info, and then the week after we’ll have a guest blogger in to cover for me.

So. If, after all that, you still haven’t heard:

WE’RE NOT HAVING A BOOTH AT GEN CON 2019 AND WE’RE HAPPY ABOUT IT!

Here again, the map of the exhibit hall showing where our books can be obtained should you feel the urge:

Finally, there are two giant sales going on of our various projects: PDFs at the Christmas in July Sale on DTRPG, and the Dog Days of Summer Sale at Indie Press Revolution where our lots of our Deluxe editions are 50% off!

BLURBS!

    Say, Rich? I think you mean EDT and CDT, not EST and CST. We’re still on Daylight time here.

    It’s not a problem for most people in the US, but it’ll probably confuse international people who have to look up what the time zones convert to… And maybe people in Arizona.

      People in Arizona have adapted to the fact that the rest of the country doesn’t understand EDT vs EST during daylight savings time.

    Player’s Guide to the Contagion Chronicle is in First Drafts. I am SO happy right now!

    So which is going to get a Kickstarter first, Hunter or Deviant?

    Fantastic news indeed! I’ll have to find a moment to check out those actual plays. I particularly like how multiple gamelines will be showcased. That’s an elegant way to get a chance to know a new line before investing. I have a ton of respect for OP doing things like that, like giving us access to the full manuscripts during the kickstarters.

    Wow, when WoD: Ghost Hunters finally move! I look away for a moment and then it starts progressing. Thank you, really looking forward to that supplement.

    Do the Scion Kickstarters get the Scion jumpstart for free or do we have to pay?

    • richt
      July 27, 2019 at 2:38 pm

      Depends on what the KS page says. As far as I can see, a PoD version is not part of that Stretch Goal, but the PDFs to backers links were sent out already.
