Writing for the Costume Fairy Adventures core book is done. There’s just one thing left in the editing queue (the glossary ran half a page over its allotted count - our editor is applying the chainsaw as you read this), and we’re going full-tilt on laying out the final appendices. If all goes well, we should have the core book (less a chunk of the illustrations) ready for our backers to review by this coming Friday.
Meanwhile, we have over 90 cards for the Core Costume Deck (out of 108) either finalised or undergoing final review. We’re very optimistic that we’ll have the deck ready to preview at the same time as the core book.
Here’s where we stand:
Written: 100% Edited: 99% Laid Out: 96% Illustrated: 65%
Core Costume Deck
Written: 85% Laid Out: 75% Illustrated: 100%
Just a couple of final previews today: a particularly important spread from the GM’s chapter, and to whet your appetites, the probably-final table of contents. As always, click for high res!
It’s been an eventful week for Costume Fairy Adventures, folks. We would love to put that “written” number at 100%, but that would be a lie. We still have half-a-dozen critical paragraphs - not sections, mind you, but individual paragraphs - that have been identified as in need of reworking, so we’re focusing on getting those sorted out. Beyond that, the Plugins proofreading is in the bag, the appendices have begun to come back from editing, and we’ve had a first run at laying out the preface and introductory material.
For today’s sneak peek, we have another spread from the GM’s chapter. The illustration on this spread features one of the iconic player groups who appear in examples throughout the book; you’ve seen them in previous previews, but now you get to see them in action! (As always, click for high-res.)
