  • Re: The ALGERNON Files Lives ... and it Kickstarts!

    I talked to Jason and Dave and they tell me the links for all the POR files have been sent out.

    Also, I was told to include Jason's email here so that people could email him directly if there are problems.

    Jason "at" Blackwyrm.com

      Thanks for the email address - I've emailed as the only files I got were from issue 1 - 21 por files (Abraxas to Arsenal of Democracy characters). Has ANYONE received the files from issue 2 or is it just a technical error why I haven't received my second set?

        I just realized that I never received that second set either, so I emailed him.

          The wording *is* a bit confusing. But I believe just the first book Sean. The second book appears to be a different tier. Jason, Blackwyrm

          Looks like I've got everything for my tier. I was at the Sidekick level FWIW.

            No dice on Hero Lab files for Vol. 2.

              Received over night the remaining Hero Lab files for issue 2 so I'm happy.

              Hopefully everyone else who purchased both sets of the herolab files with both PDF/Print copies (yes the kickstarter was confusing) will now receive the link (in my case several times now in fact) to download.

              Am curious whether these files will ever be released separately through Drivethru - somehow I doubt it given that without the PDF's/Print copies they don't make sense (no character backstory included in the files) and as they were sold in the kickstarter as an extra cost add-on they will not be distributed as a free update to those who purchased the books separately so I am extremely grateful I bought in to the kickstarter at the level I did.

              Aaron is there any update to when you plan to relaunch the Files?

                No news at the moment. Still working on layout and logistic issues.

                    Aaron, while we're waiting on you guys to finalize plans, any chance we'll get to see a few more pieces of TAF related fiction?

                      The fiction I'm working on right now will wind up in the volumes it's related to -- however, I might have the opportunity to show some more art. I'll have to look into that.

                        Sounds good, as I think releases bits of art, here and there, will keep up interest.

                          Just chiming in to say thank you to Aaron for the new version of the Algernon Files. It's really good how modular it is - how it's so easy to slot the player characters into place (something which published settings often struggle with). The last authors I thought did it this well was Big Finger Games - their villain write-ups often included an idea for a hero linked to the villain in some way.

                            Aaron, wondering if you'd figured out if you're going to be able to post any additional art until we're able to get something more concrete?

                              Apologies for the longish absence. A confluence of life-complicating events (major re-shuffling in my division and department both, two deaths in my wife's family within 12 days of each other, and finally getting matched in the ongoing adoption process my wife and I have been undertaking since October) all hit within about a three-week period and crippled my schedule between them. Between overtime at the dayjob, helping the wife execute two separate wills including getting my deceased father-in-law's house ready to go on market, and, oh, getting our own house and lives ready to slot four new little lives into the domestic environment hasn't left me with much breathing space over the last two-and-a-half months.

                              Regardless...

                              The kickstarter I hope to have up in a few weeks at the latest. I just have to finish beating down some niggley little edges. That being said, instead of me just randomly picking some new art, what I'm going to do is list out the entries for the upcoming book and let you guys vote. You guys choose four entries and I'll post the art for those entries. Additionally, if I can ever get it to work right, I'll also post a pdf file of one of the new format entries so you can see what the new layout looks like.

                              The entries are below. Italics mark teams/groups and an asterisk denotes that the art for an entry has already been seen thanks either to my own website or the two volumes Blackwyrm put out. I'm looking for votes on four entries only. Thanks.

                              Yeah, the final product is looking like somewhere north of 275 pages. I likes me the details and such.

                                First off, thanks for update, and while of sorry to hear of your family's loss, I'm glad to hear things are finally working out for you on the adoption front. I'm also looking forward to checking out the Kickstarter once it's up and running. As far as votes go, I'm voting for the Cold Front, as I've been hearing about them for years, and would love to see what they actually look like.
