For those of you who aren’t aware, myself and Lloyd Gyan have been working for some time on creating a Storm and Sail campaign book for the Fate RPG, this spun-off a campaign that I kludged together using the Fate Accelerated rules and a few ideas that I had, you can find the videos for that original campaign here:
As a big fan of swashbuckling adventure stories, a short while after the original mini-campaign has finished I decided to try and actually make it into a complete campaign book that I could publish as a PDF, Lloyd came onboard a short while later to lend assistance and a valuable second set of eyes to go over things.
I’ve been posting bits and pieces about Storm & Sail for a while (mostly over on Google+) but it’s been slow going in parts because we’ve both got RL jobs and other commitments that prevent us devoting 100% of our time to writing Storm & Sail, however, I’m now pleased to announce that we are getting pretty close to completion. By that, I mean we have most of the layout done with placeholders for artwork (yet to be commissioned) and we’ve sent advanced preview copies to a closed group of people to get some final feedback on the PDF.
Here are a few sample pages to whet your appetite:
So how long before it’s released?
Unfortunately it’s not possible for us to give an exact date when the PDF will be released since it depends on a few different factors:
- How long the artwork takes to commission and create.
- How long it takes for us to get feedback from our closed group.
- Any last minute changes or alterations we have to make.
But we’re hoping to release the PDF as soon as possible, and we hope that you’ll join us on the High Seas 🙂
