I picked up the proofs for The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies today! It was pretty exciting to see production-quality physical copies of the module: Three sets of the interior pages, plus a half dozen covers in a variety of different coatings.
I finalized the pesky cover stock & coating details that were plaguing me last week, which is great. Unfortunately, the proofs revealed couple things that need to be fixed before the final copies are printed. (I should say, "fortunately," because that's what proofs are for: Finding the unforeseen layout or production issues before you print a ton of product. So the proofs did their job.)
Because of the holiday, I won't be able to get new proofs (to verify the fixes) until the end of next week at the earliest, which means the final printing can't begin in earnest until the week of February 23rd, and that assumes I won't need a third cycle of proofs.
So The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies is still on track for a February release, but only just barely.
In other news, I'm investigating what it will take to produce content for another roleplaying game that is neither a flavor of D&D, nor a clone or simulacrum...
