Narosia: Sea of Tears Update

Jan 23 2015 12:50 PM | in Store Item News

Just a little update on Narosia from us folks over at Legendsmiths. We have gotten ourselves back on track and have revised timelines for the publication of Narosia: Sea of Tears. Since the start of the project many things have changed in the industry that caused us to question some of our approach and our overall goals with the project.

Last September we completed the content for the game. Since that time we have been fighting to get back on everyone's schedules to complete the publication and it has been a struggle. That is the danger of slipping on your production schedule — it can absolutely snowball, and it did. However, we have smashed that snowball and put everything back together and now we are back on track.

Our current estimate is PDF layout by end of January, back and forth with the printer end of February, and then off to print. Does that mean March for print product? Probably, at the earliest, but we will make the PDF available as soon as the proofs for print are finalized. Backers will have access to the pre-proof PDF as soon as we get it from layout.

Jan 19 2015 08:06 PM | in Store Item News

Sorry for the delay between news updates everyone! It's been more of a case of too much going on, rather than not very much.

Fantasy Hero Complete is currently at the printer, awaiting final approval. We are reviewing the final electronic components of the project now, and will be making the final versions of those available to backers very soon. (We've already made the roughs available.) Thank you all for your support once again.

Tangent #4: Ragnarok PDF

Dec 23 2014 01:48 AM | in Store Item News

A new system neutral product from D3 Productions.

For decades, the Ragnarok group has sought to destabilize the current government and large corporations. They have felt the increase in power by these groups to be a direct threat to the survival of humanity and have been fighting in the shadows to bring these organizations down.

Labeled as terrorists by the people they fight against, they have slowly gathered support in their struggle. Due to being vastly outnumbered and financially insignificant, they have only had luck with small scale operations such as destruction of remote facilities (fuel sources, research buildings, etc.)

Within the last couple of years, the organization has seen a drastic increase in violent activity. This is due to two things: the recent promotion of a much less tolerant council chair, and the recruitment of many brilliant scientists and programmers. Among the recent recruits is an incredibly violent programmer who goes by the name of NeoSet.

NeoSet has no concern for life and is determined to bring the entire economic and political system crashing to its knees. He is fully aware that such an aggressive action risks exposing the Ragnarok group and any failure would not be tolerated by the new chair. Therefore, NeoSet has found a small time expendable criminal to release his AI upon the world:

Can you stop him in time?
