Patreon Summary #2: August 2017

The second month of my VTT Maps Patreon has concluded, and four maps were released for each Saturday in the month. There was neither growth or loss in the number of contributing patrons this month.

While I would love to see more patrons hop on board and help to unlock some of the great goal rewards, I'm more than happy to settle for keeping all  my awesome patrons on board for another month. I truly appreciate the support!

The maps release via Patreon this month were:

Big Book of Maps: August 2017 Summary

Yesterday I sent out the Month End Summary for Aguust 2017 for The Big Book of Maps for Tabletop Roleplaying Games project. 

While we pushed way ahead of schedule again this month (breaching the 5-months ahead of schedule mark), we didn't quite get as much released as I had hoped due to an unexpected increase (30-or-so) in the number of publisher-commissioned maps for the day job; as well as a the release of a couple of other books I wrote. But as it stands, we're pushing on nearer to wrapping up the creation phase of this project way ahead of schedule.

As of this afternoon, the project stats are as follows:
  • 150 Maps Released
  • 320 Map icons Released
  • 156 days Ahead of Release Schedule
  • The Entire Project is 76.92% complete
Check out the full update here!

In other news, I have already started the book layout process including theme, structure, and creating the index / table of contents which will function as a sort of easy reference including map thumbnail, map title, page number(s), and map # (for reference to VTT maps files).

The organization of the book will include two versions of each map on either side of a page. The "Player Map" will be displayed first, followed on the inverse with the "GM Map" (which includes room numbers and hidden/secret areas). The books will not include the VTT (plain) versions of the maps. It just didn't make sense to me for them to be included outside of the digital format backers are already being provided.I don't have an exact page count yet, but this does mean that the book will clock in at well over 450 pages.

The VTT maps will be released as individual products on DriveThruRPG when the book is released to the public. These will be priced at $2 each. Backers at the $20 and higher will be provided an optional link to a free bundle including that includes them all just in case you want to manage your VTT files via your DTRPG library.
