QUOTE: John Wick Presents (published 2016-04-05, Tuesday)
1st Edition PDFs, Backerkit, Freelance Work, and Foreign Licensing
We’ve got a lot of housekeeping to attend to today. While John and the rest of the writing staff slave away on the main text and images for the Core Rulebook, the production team has been busy with PDFs, Backerkit and more...
7th Sea: 1st Edition PDFs
Over the weekend, we sent out over 10,000 PDFs to all the backers who have already completed the early Kickstarter survey. We’re going to be doing a Backerkit survey later to ask about add-ons (see below), but this first survey was to get DrivethruRPG emails for this first wave of 1st Edition PDFs.
We’re happy to say that many of those PDFs have already been downloaded from DTRPG! Of course, the massive amount of traffic caused DTRPG to struggle to keep up with you all, but we’ve gotten good reports of folks being able to download their PDFs. Yay!
As a note of clarification, we’re still waiting on DTRPG to assign the remaining nine books (Swashbuckling Adventures) to our account. We’ll send those out to you all as soon as we get them set up with us instead of AEG.
If you have not gotten your PDFs yet, please fill out this form:

We’ll be sending PDFs out to those backers who haven’t gotten them throughout the week. Thanks again for your patience!
While our first survey was just about PDFs, our next survey through Backerkit will be the real deal: you’ll get to specify your add-ons, select your sourcebooks, and more. We hoped to get the Backerkit survey out today, but it looks like we need a bit more time to make sure everything is ready. Look for that survey in your inbox by midweek!
In addition to managing existing pledges, we’ll also be taking preorders through Backerkit. If someone you know missed the campaign, they’ll be able to get on board through the preorder page. And remember that all of the additional funds we raise in Backerkit will go toward us reaching that last stretch goal at $1.35M!
Stay tuned for the Backerkit survey this week, and we'll let you know when the preorder page is up and running!
Writing, Art, and Foreign Licensing Applications
In addition to Backerkit, we’re also releasing three new surveys today for folks interested in getting involved with the project:
7th Sea: Call for Writers - Want to write for 7th Sea? Now’s your chance! (http://goo.gl/forms/tTxUJFVz2k)
7th Sea: Call for Artists - Want to contribute art to 7th Sea? We’d love to talk to you! (http://goo.gl/forms/eJdUaCgawh)
7th Sea: Foreign Licensing Bid - Want to publish 7th Sea in a foreign language? Let us know! (http://goo.gl/forms/7t5OWBqGjC)
The two calls for contributors will be open until April 15th; the foreign licensing bid process will be open to April 22nd. Please let us know if you’re having any problems fill out the appropriate form.
We’re looking forward to picking out some awesome writers and artists for upcoming books, and we’re really excited to talk to any publishers looking to bring 7th Sea to a foreign language market. Fill out the right form and we’ll be in touch!
As always, we really appreciate everyone’s kindness and patience as we get things out the door. You all are amazing fans, and we’re pumped to make 7th Sea: Second Edition a reality! Thanks!
