Latest Updates from Our Project:

Maps and Things
21 days ago – Mon, May 11, 2020 at 11:15:13 PM

We have a world map of Nuada and we have a map of Uldris (the starting nation), so our next map project has been to get all eight of the Uldrisian provinces drawn up.

First up is Nafa, the northernmost province!

Province of Nafa - by Summer (@justasummerjob)

Only the hardiest of people choose to live in the wildlands of Nafa. Hunters, exiles, nomadic Travelers, and pugnacious wanderers fight for survival each day in this lush, untamed landscape. The short, warm summers are quickly swept away by frigid northern winds,  leaving only fae of ice and mist and ironwood to haunt the snowy rainforests.

Other Happenings:

  • Our friends at TenTen Studio are working on a new concept piece for the game.
  • Jarold Sng is going to post up a video about how he created a previous piece he'd done for us. We've never shared this concept art with anyone before (it's one of the mysterious factions present in our game) so let us know your reactions to it! We'll post an update when it goes up on his YouTube channel.
  • We are also going to release an Example of Play soon!

If you have questions about the game — worldbuilding, character creation, magic, etc. —  let us know in the comments! They could be future update topics to explore 😊
 

An Update or Three
about 2 months ago – Fri, Apr 03, 2020 at 11:58:33 PM

As you all know, the last few months have been a little crazy. We are still working hard on getting the game finalized. Unfortunately, we are going to have to push the original release date from August to the fall. We will be extending the window to pre-order Backerkit add-ons (likely to the end of May).

Some progress updates:

  • Founder-tier characters and their guild sigils are all complete (they look ah-mazing!)
  • We're halfway done with the provincial maps for Uldris. Many thanks to Summer (@justasummerjob) for her hard work so far.
  • We can't remember if we addressed this previously, but to reiterate we will be releasing the digital versions of The Nuadan Chronicles when the books go to print!

Convention News

We had originally planned to be at MomoCon and Gen Con. With the pandemic going on and our finances being what they are at the moment, we have decided not to attend either convention. It's a bit of a bummer since we always look forward to meeting people and forging connections. 😓 When the situation improves, we might plan meetups for backers that live near Atlanta to pick up their items. More on that later. 

Stay Safe

Both of us are doing fine and being vigilant to protect ourselves from COVID-19. We want everyone to stay safe out there and wash your hands. Don't forget to wash your dice too. 😆 Practice social distancing, and do not venture out unless necessary. With luck, we look forward to everyone exploring the world of Nuada later this year.

Quietly Working Away
4 months ago – Wed, Feb 05, 2020 at 06:45:25 PM

We finally settled on the dice color and design with Q-Workshop and plan to order 150 sets from them soon. The Nuadan Dice are our most popular item, so get your set while they're available! 🎲

On the art front, we're finishing up several projects, including the provincial maps of Uldris, the city of Saegon, and a really awesome airship battle featuring a technomancer versus pirates. 🎨

92% of backers have filled out their BackerKit survey — we're only missing a few dozen people. Check your email if you haven't filled it out yet. Filling out the survey confirms your Kickstarter pledge and allows you to get Add-On items. 📝

In the blogosphere, we were pleasantly surprised by +1 RPG Blog for featuring us. Always happy to make new friends in the ttrpg community 😊

January Update: BackerKit and Balancing
5 months ago – Wed, Jan 15, 2020 at 01:23:37 AM

Hey hey! Wow, it's been a while. Hope everyone's holidays were good. Jason and I have been working hard on editing and balancing the game. We're moving into the final phase soon!

Here's what you need to know right now:

  • If you haven't yet gone to BackerKit, we've sent out a new email. Follow the link to confirm your Kickstarter order (and any extra add-ons you would like). The vast majority of you have responded but there are a few stragglers (check your spam in case you don't see the email in your inbox).
  • BackerKit and the pre-order store will remain open until early April. We'll provide a more final date when we get close to printing and shipping.
  • Speaking of shipping, we're pretty sure which printer we're going with, but we're still shopping around to make sure we are getting the best deal for you all.
  • Many of you have ordered your dice and GM screens and those are currently in the works! For the dice we are finalizing color (it's been surprisingly difficult to get the right shade of blue that we want) and we're working with a designer for the interior of the GM screen (can't wait to show you all the final design).

Thank you all so much for your patience. It's going to be an intense 2020, and we look forward to getting our game out to you. We appreciate the massive support in bringing our creation to life.

We'll post another update in a few weeks. 

Hopefully, by then everyone has confirmed via BackerKit and we can send out one of the stretch goals we promised: a digital download of Seuma the Chronicler! Here's a sneak preview...
