Hey, people - this is Aram. I have some updates I want to go through in detail, but first I would like to summarize:
- Rise of the Demigods is (obviously) late
- Rise of the Demigods is still fully in production
- Rise of the Demigods will be completed as described in the Kickstarter
I apologize for the lack of communication. Since the Kickstarter launched, I had suffered a mental breakdown that ended up with me being hospitalized for six days. Since then, I have learned I am both bipolar and on the autistic spectrum. At 43, both pieces of information were new and surprising.
Once I got out my goal was simply to throw myself back into writing and production. I had always felt best when I was working, and I assumed that would be the best prescription for my fear and sadness.
It wasn’t. I have made good progress with the Rise of the Demigods book, but I was not where I needed to be. After six months of new drugs and therapy, I feel like I finally am.
Here are my set goals to finish the book:
- Wrap the PDF: My main focus is to edit, proof, and finalize the PDF. I will release it immediately upon completion.
- Send the PDF to the printer: As soon as the PDF is done I will send the book to the printer. Once they have it, I’ll have an estimate as to when it will enter production and ship.
- Wrap the audio: Once the book has been sent to the printer I’ll focus on recording and editing all of the intro text for the book’s adventure section. I will release a second .PDF where the files are shrunk for tablets and phones.
I will post updates throughout this process, as well as page and rules previews for creating demigods within the Godsfall world.
I am sorry that I was not able to meet the deadline and for my lack of communication. I am very excited for you all to see what I have been working on, and I hope you all will love playing in the Godsfall world.
Thank you all for your support. I cherish it, and I will work hard to make sure you all love Rise of the Demigods.
