Latest Updates from Our Project:

Books are on the boat!
8 days ago – Thu, Mar 26, 2020 at 11:49:25 PM

Great news--The Port of Hong Kong is open, and the books are loaded in a container. I spoke with the fulfillment agent this morning, and any further delay will only be due to US ports--so..big progress.

In other news, we are having a huge sale for all of you who are stuck in quarantine. We have been holed up for two weeks at the warehouse (no one is sick!) and are one of the few companies that can ship dead tree books right now. We know money is tight with everyone, so decided to make everyone a wholesaler while the crisis lasts. The link is below.

 http://web-extract.constantcontact.com/v1/social_annotation_v2?permalink_uri=https%3A%2F%2Fmyemail.constantcontact.com%2FFGG-50--Off-Sale--Book-of-Taverns-WA-Video--Free-Stuff-from-Ben----VTT-Gary-Con-.html%3Fsoid%3D1114798525802%26aid%3Dr8LH2v7BJtU&image_url=https%3A%2F%2Ffiles.constantcontact.com%2Fa6d8b2f8301%2F2496196e-9ff8-4e0f-9e44-d6a6a1848074.jpg&fbclid=IwAR3ujLW7PfbteNaaIRxgJNg3r2uArXIeABaqUtCoW-VEkDGY6z_G7QqIwUo 

Finally, (in the same link, as well as below), since none of us can actually go to a bar or tavern right now, we have an indigogo for two unique tavens running right now. The PDF is only $6, and the 100 pound paper softcover is $17. Its already funded, and we promise to make lots of less expensive stuff to keep all of you from going stir crazy while we are high centered, and resume normal big book production once everything gets stabilized.

Everyone, please stay home if you can. We can get through this together if we just stay apart for a few weeks. 

If there is no better sign that this stuff is apocolypic, they are making me run a online game on Saturday (assume it will take longer to teach me how than to actually run the game).

World Anvil Update
21 days ago – Fri, Mar 13, 2020 at 02:15:00 PM

We plan to launch World Anvil sometime next week, but here is some info about the subscription levels ahead of time, that I am sure you are all wanting to know. 

ART


What will an art pack consist of? What do they look like? How many pieces?

Each art pack, both the color and black & white versions, will consist of art from the entire catalog of Frog God Games and Necromancer Games. The full-resolution images will be available in JPG and PNG formats. Each pack will contain 10 pieces of art (20 total; 10 per format). Each art pack will be in a Zip folder and be in the Downloads section of your FGG account.

What are the formats for the art?
JPG and PNG formats for black and white art. Color will be JPG.

What are the resolutions for the art?
The original resolutions they were done in. This varies by piece and what product it was intended for. They are all print quality.

Is there any difference between the black-and-white and color art? Are they the same artwork with/without color?
Yes, the color and black-and-white pieces of art will be different. No, the same artwork will not appear between the two packs unless the artist did a rendering in both palettes.

Can I use the art from my subscription in products I publish? Or is the art for personal use only?
No, currently you cannot publish the art in your own products without written consent from Frog God Games. However, you are free to use the images for personal use in your games.

If I stop subscribing, can I still use the art from the period of my former subscription in products I publish? How about for personal use only?
Again, publishing the art will have to wait until we receive some legal advice in order to properly answer it. As for personal use, the answer is yes; any art you receive can be used in a personal way for your games.

If I stop subscribing, what happens to the art from the period of my former subscription?

The art packs you receive will be in the download section of your account on the Frog God Games' site listed as the month of the pack, and whether it is color/black & white. You will be able to access it and download it as any other product in that section. You will not, however, receive or have access to anything that comes out after your subscription has ended or you have ended your subscription.

If I stop subscribing for a month, is there any way to get access to the art from the month(s) I didn’t subscribe?

No. If you stop your subscription and renew it later, you will not have access to the art from whatever month or months you may have missed. Only the months where you have an active subscription will garner new art packs. At this time, there are no plans to release or re-release any of the previous art packs once the period for those packs passes.

If I subscribe after several months of art have been released, do I have access to the back catalog of released art?
No. You will have access only to art pack(s) for the current month and for each successive month that you maintain an active subscription. All previous art packs will not be accessible.

What are voting rights and how do I exercise them?
Voting rights are active for those subscription levels that have access to them. Those members will be able to vote on the next adventure to be published in World Anvil; the content for the art packs (color, black & white); and possibly the maps. To exercise these voting rights, you have to be in the Frog God Games’ Discord Server, have one of the subscription level roles in the server, and cast your vote within the period for the particular item (color art, black & white art, World Anvil adventure).

If I don’t subscribe, is there any way to purchase the art?
No, not currently.

Maps

Are subscription maps the ones from the subscription adventure?
No.

Are subscription maps updates of older ones?
If an older, previously published map has been updated, then yes. The older/original map could also be an option as well.

Are subscription maps for areas in the Lost Lands?
Yes, but not exclusively .

If I subscribe after several months of maps have been released, do I have access to the back catalog of released maps?
No. You will have access only to the current month’s map and to each successive month during which you have an active subscription. All maps offered during times when the subscription was not active will not be accessible.

If I stop subscribing, what happens to the maps from the period of my former subscription?
The map(s) from your period of active subscription are yours and will be accessible like any other products in your Downloads section of your account.

If I stop subscribing, is there any way to get access to the maps from the months I didn’t subscribe?
No.

If I don’t subscribe, is there any way to purchase the maps?
No, not currently.


Adventures


Will Thom Wilson be writing all of the subscription adventures?

For the foreseeable future, yes, but we hope to include more writers in the future.

Are subscription adventures set in the Lost Lands?
Yes. Currently the first six adventures are set in the World of the Lost Lands.

Are subscription adventures in World Anvil?
Not currently but they are scheduled to be included in the future.

What are voting rights and how do I exercise them?
Voting rights are active for those subscription levels that have access to them. Those members will be able to vote on the next adventure to be published in World Anvil; the content for the art packs (color, black & white); and possibly the maps. To exercise these voting rights, you have to be in the Frog God Games’ Discord Server, have one of the subscription level roles in the server, and cast your vote within the period for the particular item (color art, black & white art, World Anvil adventure).

If I subscribe after several months of adventures have been released, do I have access to the back catalog of released adventures?
No. You have access to the current adventure from the month during which you subscribe and to any future adventure for each month that your subscription remains active.

If I stop subscribing, what happens to the adventures from the period of my former subscription?
The adventures that you receive during your active subscription, are yours. They will stay in the Downloads section of your account page on the FGG site and can be downloaded at any time after purchase of a subscription or renewal of a subscription.

If I stop subscribing for a month, is there any way to get access to the adventures from the month I didn’t subscribe?
In general, no. They may eventually be available in World Anvil, but since adventures added will in the future usually be subject to a vote, it is impossible to predict when each adventure will be added.

If I don’t subscribe, is there any way to purchase the adventures?
No.

Access


What if my Frog God Games email address is different from the one I used on World Anvil?
We will change your Frog God Games address to your World Anvil email address.

Do subscriptions auto-renew if I don’t take any action?
Yes, but there is an option on the My Subscriptions page to turn off auto-renewal. NOTE! If you turn off auto-renewal of your subscription, it will expire and you will have to reactivate the subscription to gain the benefits again.

Can I buy access for a friend as a gift?
Yes.

How can I see how much access time I have remaining on my subscription?
The My Subscription page will show you the date of your subscription and the current date when it ends.

Can I buy a subscription for multiple months?
No.

Can I buy a subscription for multiple years?
No.

When does my “month” or “year” start?
The subscription starts on the day you purchase it. You can go to the My Subscription page for details on the exact start day of the subscription and also when it expires.

Can I turn off auto-renewal of subscriptions without canceling any days left in my current subscription?
Yes. If you turn off auto-renewal of your subscription, it still ends in the same time period, one month or one year from the date of purchase.

What happens if I accidentally buy too many months of subscription?
You will be charged for each subscription you purchase, but multiple purchases do not extend the period of the original subscription nor grant you more than what you already get from purchasing the same level subscription.

Can I upgrade my subscription to a higher tier?
An Upgrade button can be found on the My Subscription page to allow you to upgrade to another subscription level. You can also cancel your current subscription and purchase a new higher subscription. NOTE! If you purchase a new subscription in the same month, you will not receive new material beyond what is already provided for that month. You will not receive a different art pack, map, or adventure through purchasing another subscription level.

Can I downgrade my subscription to a lower tier?
A Downgrade button can be found on the My Subscription page to allow you to downgrade to another subscription level. You can also cancel your current subscription and purchase a new lower subscription. NOTE! If you lower your subscription, you lose access to any new material from your previous subscription.

Store


Can I use my store credits any time?
Yes. The store credits from a Level 3 subscription can be used at any time even after you subscription has ended.

Can I use my store credits with coupons?
Yes. Your store credits can combine with coupons for any purchase to which they are applicable.

Can I use my store discounts any time?
Yes. While you have an active subscription, your store discounts (PDF, physical) will be applicable. You can see how much of a discount and to which products they apply in the Memberships page of your account under Products.

Can I use my store credits and/or discounts on Kickstarters or Indiegogos?
No.

Tier 3: What products are over 12 months old?
You can see all products that have the 5% discount off the hardcover or softcover costs in the subpage Products in your Account page under Memberships.

Status Report -- March 12
22 days ago – Thu, Mar 12, 2020 at 10:27:34 PM

Although the status of the Lost Lands books seems like it may not be one of the more important issues at the moment, we've gotten some questions so wanted to update everyone on where things stand.

The printer tells us that all of the regular-cover books have been printed and bound, and the books with the limited edition cover have been printed and will be bound shortly. Once all of the books are completed, they will be delivered to the port of Hong Kong for shipping.

Normally, we would be able to provide an estimate of timing after that, but with the continuing effect of COVID-19, we really aren't sure how long the rest of the process will take. This is particularly the case given that the destination of the books is the port of Seattle, where the shipments may face additional delays through customs. The good news is that it's just a matter of time at this point; the bad news is, we just don't know how much time.

In the meantime, PDF stretch goals, such as the system supplements, are being completed, and will be distributed electronically as soon as they are ready to go.

We will continue to post updates as developments occur. While we wait, let's all be safe out there.
