I was just writing a short post in a nearby thread about folks who actually have the nerve/madness to run their players through the epic campaign The Slumbering Tsar Saga that Frog God Games put out a few years back, and in the process of teasing some of our upcoming stuff my short post became quite bloated. I then realized I was repeating some stuff I had put piecemeal in a few other posts here and there and thought it might be more efficient just to get it all in one place rather than answer the same questions in 9 different threads. So for those of you who have seen this for the umpteenth time, my apologies; I will commence shutting up after this/these post(s). (except to answer questions of course) ;-)
For the rest who may be interested, here is a large part of the proposed schedule of releases by Frog God Games. It is by no means complete and focuses mainly on the Kickstarters I see us doing (which we do for our larger, more-expensive-to-produce products). We try to do around 4 KS a year and then release smaller projects that we can fund with less risk in between or in concordance with those flagship releases. So without further ado:
Shipment of Sword of Air and Quests of Doom Kickstarters from 2014 are our first priority.
I know Sword of Air has gone to the printers and released in pdf form for backers. The pdf for nonbackers will become available when we get the print copies back and shipped. That is also when we'll put the hard copy version of SoA up for sale for nonbackers as well. This is my understanding of the distribution schedule to get give the backers priority, but Bill can come and correct me if necessary.
Quests of Doom is either at the printers (or nearly so). I know the adventures are all done and haven't heard any panicked discussion from the rest of the FGG crew which is usually a good sign it is either printing or at least going through layout where the capable hands of Chuck Wright can bring all chaos to order. Anyway, I think this one will become available shortly after SoA and will probably be handled in a similar way as far as distribution goes. A great deal of thanks to the patience of all the backers. Between scheduling issues related to the release of 5e rules by WotC and sanity issues related to trying to corral and bring together all of the loose threads of Bill Webb's magnum opus, getting these two projects into print has been a trial and much more time consuming than we originally calculated. But we want to get them right the first time rather than send out a substandard product, so we truly appreciate the loyal backers who have patiently awaited these. You guys are the best.
However, as a result of the slowness in delivery of those two KS, we have made getting them shipped before going onto new projects a priority. As a result none of the other KS scheduled for 2015 will happen until at least one (if not both) of those have shipped to the backers. That said, assuming those begin shipping in Q1 we will do our next KS in Q1. It will be a bit less ambitious and more wallet friendly than SoA to let everyone and their holiday expenses take a bit of a breather. And that KS will be...(more to follow in next post)
