So the clock is ticking down on the campaign and on Friday Morning it will all be over.
Cover artist Jon Hodgson is hard at work on the front cover and has posted these two detail images of the work in progress.
That’s right this time Friday morning it will all be over!
Stretch Goal 4 funded at the end of last week, so that’s The Monkey Companion in the bag. That’s a total of four books that the campaign has funded now. I’ve added six new stretch goals to the campaign and funding has picked up. Who knows where we will end our own Journey to the West ?
So if you are thinking about backing now is the time to jump aboard and if you are a backer thinking about upping their pledge please do now to help the campaign end up in a crazy unimaginable place 🙂
More art is coming in from the artists. Lots of stuff to show you today 🙂
Art production for the main rulebook is fully under way and the artists are blowing me away with their contributions 🙂
Here’s Jon Hodgson’s cover in progress
And here it is again on its own as a static image…
Next Dan Barker has finished off his full page illustration for the adventure “If you see Buddha on the Road”
We’re now officially half way through the Kickstarter and in a very healthy position indeed.
Main Rulebook funded on day one, followed by Stretch Goals 1 +2 which provide extra content for that book + a separate quick start rule booklet which will be be free in pdf form and low cost in print. Stretch goal 3, The Ministry of Thunder funded yesterday, and this will be a 5 scenario book. I’m quite chuffed about this because I’ve wanted to do this for years and now have the funds to get it done properly.
We’re now funding the Monkey Companion (which I’ll blog about in detail tomorrow).which is basically a book of short articles and adventures. One of these feature hopping vampires from Chinese Kung Fu movies, and Peter Frain has done a cracking job on illustrating one of them.
Earlier this morning we hit the Stretch Goal 3 The Ministry of Thunder! Now onwards and upwards towards the Monkey Companion!
Also some good news if you are backing at the Silver Monkey level (or are considering it). I’ve upped the reward package to include eight art prints; the piece you sponsor or suggest (which you’ll also get as a print quality electronic image for your own personal use) + 3 pieces by Peter Frain (The Monkey Triptych which includes the banner image on this site) + Dan Barker’s interpretation of the Four Pilgrims.
Talking of Dan, he’s still working away at his illustration for the scenario “If you See Buddha on the Road”
Here’s the latest work in progress showing the scale of the piece (its missing Monkey and co.)
