Monday Meeting 2017/04/03

[#][F] Eric Minton - 4/4/2017
I figure I should present a brief rundown of the reasons why the upcoming books have gone back to first draft status, so that no one needs to engage in guesswork.

1) We do not have complete drafts of any of the books. Vance and I have been writing first draft material to fill in the gaps in Arms of the Chosen. We are in the process of soliciting manuscripts for the material missing from the other two books.

2) We are not sure how much of the existing material has gone through redlines, but at least some of it is still in first draft.

3) Even material that went through second drafts under the previous developers needs a second look. This is not a knock on their skills or professionalism! It is, however, incumbent on myself and Robert to assess everything ourselves, without making any assumptions as to how effectively anyone else may have edited the work. Hopefully the manuscripts will be clean and will require a minimum of redlining! But we still need to redline them.

Not to sound pushy, just curious if the 3 month suggestion for the Arms advance pdf is still on the table?
Yeah, the timeline announced remains unchanged.

It's your baby, isn't it?
Yeah, I conceived the idea for the scenario, pitched it to Holden during the leadup to the KS, and wrote the thing, with the exception of the antagonist stats which were handled by either Holden or Vance because "Bespoke spirit stat blocks including summary custom Charms, as is the 3e way of doing things" is not one of my strengths.

I'm ready to throw money at my monitor for it.
Thank you for the vote of confidence.
