Things are moving on quite briskly at my end, so much so that I think a mid-monthly update is in order.
OQ Basics has made it through print proof, so its ready to go.
Crucible of the Dragons is just about to get through print proof. It should be ready to go by the end of this week.
Savage North is at the proofing/updating original layout, while new content is being proofed.
Life and Death is at the stage where I’m finishing off additional content – a new ten page adventure + expanded ready made concepts.
For both the above I’m looking at sending it to print proof next week.
My plan is to send this out in one mail shot when its ready, since it means I only pay for the postage once rather than two to four times as individual books become available.
i.e Demi-Gods get OQ Basics, Cruicible of the Dragon, Savage North and Life and Death as one mail shot
and Heroes get OQ Basics + Savage North in one go.
I’m aiming to get this all done and out by the first week of April.
Please note: NONE of the revised/new books will be available on General Release until I’ve ordered it for backers.

OpenQuest Adventures is still in production. I’ve now settled on a line up of three adventures and a selection of articles which make planning and running OQ adventures easier. Currently the page count is about 70 pages, with it being a 50/50 spilt between articles/adventures, but I can see this rising as I expand/revise the content. Art has been commissioned for a June release date.
OpenQuestRpg.com. One thing I’ve learnt from doing all this is that I’m spread quite thin and need to work smarter in a few areas. One of them is my web presence. So probably in April I’ll be decommissioning OpenQuestRpg.com and redirecting it to D101Games.com . This is where I’ll host the Digital SRD and OpenQuest Developers kit and the Forum. I’m still thinking about whether I’m going to do Member’s area. One of the reasons why backers only got a year’s subscription was that it was a bit of an experiment and I’m not very happy with the amount of content I was able to put up in the area during its lifetime. If I was to do again on D101Games.com it would also have content from all my game lines, which would make it worthwhile. So for now the Member’s area expires March 25th, so copy any content you want from it before then. I will share previews of OQ Adventures material via an alternative route.
