Latest Updates from Our Project:

Transmission Thursday: New Dossiers incoming
5 days ago – Fri, Feb 26, 2021 at 01:25:45 AM

Welcome back, agents

We hope that those of you who celebrate the Lunar New year had a really good time and set off for new beginnings. Despite the strength and diligence of the ox, the miasma remains. Here’s a few updates on where we are on the process.  For one, the core rulebook is still in the hands of our manufacturing partners; now that the Lunar New Year celebrations are over, we can start with massive production.

Before we move on to the other rewards, here's a picture of the slipcase which will house your books.

Azure Owl

Originally, we were going to shut the door at page 30, but we figured the cliff-hanger we had could do with a little oomph, so we’re pushing a few more panels. The artist and Writer have made a few changes to the script, as usually goes. We took the decision to expand the comic because we are very grateful for your support in this campaign and the new one for the 3D printable files!

Darkest Hour

Design for the adventure is moving along. We had the writer pitch a new encounter where we could add one of our monsters from our STL campaign and his encounter allowed us to add two. That’s right. Two new monsters first ever featured in our adventure.

Dossiers

We have fixed a few issues that you pointed out on our Discord. Special thanks to user MFoxSG and WanderingMystic. Soon, we’ll upload an updated version of our dossiers.

We hope you are enjoying this journey as much as we are. We are thrilled to hear more from you in our social media and our Discord!

We have reached a considerably slower part of the process. From this update on, all new updates will come up every two weeks. Thank you all so much for your support.

Stay safe, agents

Transmission Thursday: Dossiers PDF fulfilled
19 days ago – Thu, Feb 11, 2021 at 02:23:35 PM

Welcome back, agents

We have good news today and this update will be, therefore, rather short. Our dossiers are live and ready for the taking. They should be available in your Lair library. We’d like to thank you for your patience with our fulfilment. It has been a great journey and we’re getting close to the finish line.

What was once a set of three 40-page booklets has been condensed into one book with the new information that makes up our lore. This has all gone through cultural consultancy and editing and rebalanced with our Draco System.

The status

  • Our core rulebooks have been sent for production. We voiced out concerns with certain issues we noticed in the pre-print copy and they have been addressed. We’ll keep you posted as they come closer to their fulfillment. Chinese New Year has started so mass production will start by the end of February.
  • We’ve made a few moves regarding the design of the Darkest Hour adventure. Today, our team will go through the changes and pitches for introducing the monster, but it’s looking good. Art pieces have also been assigned.
  • Azure owl is close to completion! We’ll let you know when you can pick it up from our store.

Please be sure to let us know if you have any issues with picking up your Dossiers by sending an email to support@dracostudios.com. Make sure the Dossier (listed as “Eldritch Century Starter”) is available for your reward tier. Minerva field agent, Faction intel agent, Miasma explorer and Retailer are eligible.


For now, enjoy your digital copies. Go into the fog and tell your stories! Share your favorite experiences with us in our social media and in our Discord Server.

Stay safe, agents.

Transmission Thursday: Making moves
26 days ago – Thu, Feb 04, 2021 at 06:12:26 PM

Welcome back, agents

It’s been a week of hard work, but things are moving along. Our Expeditions and Almanac books have been returned to our manufacturing partners to be placed in the slipcase. Once the correct changes and details have been patched through, we should be ready to move on to production.

Darkest Hour

Any ideas on what monster it may be? We’ve discussed and detailed a few ideas we’ve worked out regarding the addition of the monster into our adventure. We had to stop design for a moment while we added the correct number of words and paragraph density, but all in good time.

Azure Owl

We have a work in progress for our cover. Take a look!

Dossiers

We’ve reached what we hope is our final version of our design document for the Dossiers. Once we put together the necessary feedback, we’ll be ready to add it to fulfillment and post it on our store.

Twitch

Remember last week’s session? It’s live in our Youtube channel. We’d really like to thank everyone at the table and in the chat room. We makes games because we like having fun, and the more our community grows, the more fun we can have together.

How would you like for another public session to happen? We’d like to hear from you before we consider numbers and the necessary time.

Transmission Thursday: Catching up
about 1 month ago – Thu, Jan 28, 2021 at 06:20:42 PM

Agents, welcome back

After an incredibly successful Twitch experience with backers from our campaigns, we have more good news for you.

Expeditions & Almanac

Our pre-production copy has gone through the hands of everyone in the team and our feedback has been delivered to our manufacturing partners at Panda. We are really excited about the progress and the product.

Tomorrow we will receive the PPC of the slipcase in which you will receive your two books!

Darkest Hour

We’re implementing a new monster into our full adventure. We’re working on pitches on how best to implement it without changing the story entirely but ensuring the best experience overall. Can you guess the monster? Hint: It was in our STL and stories campaign, but it’s not featured in the bestiary from Almanac.

The Azure Owl

We have the first sketches for the cover of our comic! It’s really exciting to see it all come together.

Dossiers (Starter set)

We had a small software issue while building the Dossiers document. It has all been accounted for and the digital book should be ready for claiming soon (in a couple of weeks, tops).

A short update, but it’s important for us to keep you updated. After all, our community is key to our growth and success. Stories can’t be told if you don’t want to tell them and fun can’t be had if you’re not taken into account.

Remember that soon you’ll be able to see the entire Eldritch Century session we had over on Twitch in our YouTube channel. While that’s uploaded, have you seen our first Minerva transmission? It covers the Empire of the Eclipse and the base things you need to know about them!

Watch the first Faction Report here!

We will be back next Thursday with another transmission and hopefully, great pictures of the slipcase. 

Stay safe, agents!

Asking for a favor: One of Draco Studios family games (in collaboration with Detestable Games), Dodos Riding Dinos, has been nominated within the Top 20 most anticipated games of the year in Boardgamegeek! This is a popularity contest that greatly helps exposure for the winning titles, it would mean the world to us if you could vote for Dodos Riding Dinos! More info here.

Transmission Thursday: Dossiers cover / 13hrs left to get the new 3D models!
about 1 month ago – Sun, Jan 24, 2021 at 02:59:45 AM

Welcome back, agents

This week's Transmission Thursday is arriving a little bit early to remind you about the last 24 hours to support the new Eldritch Century campaign with new 3D printable models and novels, in case you are interested. 

But of course, we also have more news to share:

PDF reward (Expeditions & Almanac core books)

We have updated your PDF copy of the Almanac and Expeditions books. We applied a couple of changes we noticed in production and some notes you brought up in our discord or here in the comment section. All you need to do is download again from your library. There are not big changes but just in case you want to keep the most updated version. Some typos were fixed, some images had their color balance slightly adjusted, and the character sheet had 2 checkboxes marked so we fixed that.

Regarding the physical books: We have committed the changes and sent them to the factory, we expect to receive the new digital proofs in the coming week and to start mass manufacture in early February.

Dossiers (previously called starter set)

We’re at a stage with the Dossiers document where we feel comfortable to move forward with file preparation prior to digital fulfillment. We’ll let you know as soon as it is available.
