Hey all! Zorro: The Roleplaying Game is now available in digital format via DriveThruRPG. Did you know? A link, if you’re lazy like me: Zorro.
While the final bits of the Zorro project are in the publisher’s hands, I’ve turned my primary focus to Arium (my RPG passion project) over the past couple of months. Well, primary focus after time spent dealing with unforeseen work and life circumstance. And scavenging for toilet paper. You get the point.
Some good news: the Arium team is marching toward completion, and while that is in progress, we’ll be hosting a weekly actual play on the Adept Icarus YouTube channel. Swing on by if you’d like an idea of what we’ve been up to!
Crowdfunding is new in the grand scheme of things, and completely new to many of my family/friends. I’m going to do my best to explain it, and why spreading the word to anyone you know who likes roleplaying games (RPGs) can be a huge help in our Zorro campaign.
Zorro: The Roleplaying Game is crowdfunded on Kickstarter (we get the money we need to make the game from people who want to see it made) AND funded (we have the minimum amount of money we need to publish the book). This is great! People love both Zorro and RPGs!
However, we have quite a few additional things we’d like to add to our game book if we had a little more money for economies of scale (printing books is considerably cheaper the more copies you make and we are making a gorgeous full-color hardbound 200-page book).
These crowdfunding campaigns fail or succeed based on the interest of a few people who want to see them made. Right now we have about 500 people backing for an eBook or hardcover copy. Every additional person who backs puts us that much closer to our stretch goals.
So, what would help? Spreading the word to anyone you know who likes RPGs. Being patient with my continuing crowdfunding posts for a few more days until we are done with the Zorro Kickstarter campaign.
For those playing the home game, here is a nice link you can share!
