Latest Updates from Our Project:

Transmission thursday: Reports on their way
7 days ago – Fri, Jun 11, 2021 at 10:30:23 PM

Agents, welcome back.

As you may have surmised from the title, we have excellent news. Your Expeditions and Almanac reports are on their way to our fulfilment centers. After months of trials, communication, fixing issues and manufacture, our books are ready to get to you.

You may have received an email or notification in your inbox regarding your mailing address. 24 hours from now final addresses will be locked to start sending our books to you.  Make sure you double check your information.



Dossiers

If you pledged for the Dossiers (formerly named "Starter Set"), we have new for you. We are putting together a print on demand for you! No additional charges are necessary, but it will take a bit of time before it arrives to you. As we speak, we are trying to get the file approved by Drivethru RPG so we can send it to our fulfillment centers. 

This is mostly to leverage the production of 2 corebooks instead of 1 but we will get you your physical Dossiers.

As always, we'll keep you posted as this evolves.

Remember that you can find a digital copy of these products in our store.

Remember that you can find us on most social media and that you can join our Discord server and keep in touch with the team in real time.


Join us now in our Facebook livestream where Pam will share more details of this news and show an exciting preproduction copy of another RPG book we received this week for Great Wyrms of Drakha.

Transmission Thursday: Advance mass production copy received!
about 1 month ago – Fri, May 07, 2021 at 03:44:40 AM

Welcome back agents,

It has been a while, hasn’t it? We hope things are going well, and that you and yours are keeping safe. We bring news about your PHYSICAL books and all other rewards.

Our news today for the books are exciting, quick and simple: manufacturing is still going strong and it should be ready by the end of next week. We already have the mass production copy with us! 

The corrections we asked for in the Pre-Production copies for the slipcase and top ribbons as well as correcting some images and typos, are now fixed in the mass production copies. You can take a quick look at our weekly livestream where Pam showed the Mass production copies!

Freight shipping is starting soon so you will receive a notification soon about locking addresses. But you can still update your shipping address here. 


Darkest hour PDF almost finished

Editorial design is almost done. We are just waiting for the last piece of art so that we can add it to the file, check any final tweaks and throw it online.

Azure Owl - Graphic Novel last pages being colored

Remember how we doubled up the pages you’d get for this comic?  Well, the last batch is on inks right now. The team is pulling feedback together, but we should move to color soon. The final pages look amazing so far, we really think you will enjoy it.

An eldritch Kiwi in Kiwi Chow Down 

You may have already seen the news, but our board games department at Detestable games have launched a new campaign live right now for our newest family game Kiwi Chow Down. The name says it all, but let’s go for it anyway: kiwi eating kiwifruit and pushing each other. 

Click here to check it out!

As enthusiasts of eldritch themes and cosmic horror,  we created a kiwi with an eldritch inspiration (just as we sneaked Cluckthulhu on War for Chicken Island) check it out.

We are sharing this because we know many of you are into board games or 3D printing, and this project has both. You can check the campaign here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/detestablegames/kiwi-chow-down?ref=c5se3d

--------

That's all for now but we are veeeeery close to fulfilling all rewards. Remember that if you can locate your PDF files for Expeditions & Almanac (the core books), Dossiers (previously named the starter set), or your STL files, you can always reach out to support@dracostudios.com and Pam will gladly help you out! 

The other rewards (Azure Owl graphic novel, Darkest Hour adventure in PDF, and the physical books) are almost here! Thanks so much for your trust and support!

Transmission Thursday: 5e character creation rules
3 months ago – Thu, Apr 01, 2021 at 02:35:08 PM

Greetings, agents.

 It has been a while since we last spoke.  Our core rulebook is still in the cogs of manufacture, and we expect to receive the advance mass production copy by April 18th. Mass production will finish in May 10th.  We started reviewing the Shipping Plan with the factory.


5e Character Creation supplement being ready!

You can find it in your very own LAIR library. Within the 92 pages it details, as its name suggests, a different way to create your characters that is more akin to the fifth edition of the world's most famous role playing game. If you want to stick to the classics, now you can.

If you have trouble accessing your Lair library feel free to reach out to kickstarter@dracostudios.com


Darkest Hour

Layout is finished and we are finishing the new illustrations for the PDF adventure. Here's a sneak peek.

We expect to fulfill this unlocked stretch goal by the end of April.

Work in progress by Anton Ninov

The comic is now a 60-page graphic novel!

Not only you get double the amount of the planned core book content (2 books instead of 1), but we have decided to expand the 30-page comic to a full 60-page graphic novel! We are finishing color for the last 15 pages and we also expect to fulfill this by the end of April.

The Azure Owl Graphic Novel illustrated and colored by Rodrigo Gil.

We have been thinking of a tie-in for the graphic novel and the PDF adventure (The Darkest Hour), so in the future you could see illustrated what's actually been played in the Darkest Hour; let us know if you would be interested in something like this for a future release.

Final hours to get the new Dragonbond 3D-printable files

This is just a friendly-reminder for our backers who take part in the makers community. The new Kickstarter campaign for Dragonbond (our fantasy universe) is finishing in 3 hours.  You can still join and get a ton of models for 3D printing that could fit nicely in your fantasy RPG campaigns or try our beta rules for a whole wargaming experience with the Dragonbond models.

We will be back soon with more news and PDF's on your library.

Transmission Thursday: More loyalty rewards for you
3 months ago – Fri, Mar 19, 2021 at 09:55:20 AM

Welcome back, agents

It's been a couple of weeks since we las got in touch, so lets play catch up. Our corebook is still in the production process, but we have good news. Our manufacturing partners sent the carton markings that will be used to ship the books overseas, so we know that things are moving along nicely. 

The Darkest Hour

We're still working on a few art pieces to fit into the adventure. We're putting finishing touches on the cover art for the unlocked stretch goal digital adventure. What do you think?

The Azure Owl

Since we're on the subject of covers, we decided to go a different way from what we had on this. The artist who made the comic showed us a few sketches and we loved it. What do you think?

This is still a work in progress but looking great already.

Transmission Thursday: New Dossiers incoming
4 months 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! 

Pencils by Rodrigo Gil

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
