Wayward Kickstarter - Far West - BACKER UPDATE - Finished Manuscript within a Month or so - So Gareth Says!

 Well, Gareth has made promises before, so let me just add the following:

Sure, it's a "Backers Only Update", but after more than a decade of excuses and delays, I'm not sure how many backers actually care at the moment. Here's today's update, sans Dropbox link (I'll look over the linked material later):

Greetings, Backers --

I have some excellent news for you all.  I've spoken to my partner, Eric Trautmann, who informs me that the layout of FAR WEST will be completed within the next month or so!  We are so close to delivering the PDF!

Your incredible patience has made this all possible, and I cannot begin to thank you enough.

It occurred to me as I was preparing to send you this news that I hadn't yet sent you the complete manuscript, from beginning to end.  You'd seen bits and pieces of it, but not the whole thing.  So, without further ado, I present the following to you -- PDFs of the entire manuscript, from the Front Matter to the Open Game License that closes the rulebook.

No link for you - if a backer, look for today's update

Another piece of news for you:  As you know, our Far West society forums on the website were the victim of an attack, which corrupted several critical files, and ended up with us losing the entire forum.  Well, I have now replaced that forum with a dedicated Discord server -- and, as a thank you for your support and unbelievable patience with us, every backer of this Kickstarter is being given a lifetime membership to the Far West Society, and access to the Discord, where you can ask questions, make suggestions, and generally converse with your fellow members.  The invite is here:

No link for you. If you are a backer, look for today's update.

Society members receive special offers on Far West products, including exclusive merchandise not offered for sale to the public. The Society receives access to a private members-only Discord server, where they have direct access to the Far West Core Development Team, as well as early access to information and material before it is released via the main site.

Most importantly, however, the Far West Society has the ability to add material to the official Far West canon, and to directly influence the outcome of events within the setting. Society members can propose new characters, locations, organizations, events and more, and those proposals are discussed and collaborated upon by their fellow members. The proposals are honed to razor-sharpness by the community, and incorporated by the Core Development Team into the official setting!

We look forward to talking with you all on the official Discord!

That's all for now.  Talk to you again soon, when we sent you the final PDF of the game!

  1. So wait, did he actually send a rough pdf of the whole manuscript? Does it really exist? If so, this is a momentous occasion!

    I mean, if there is a manuscript, I would imagine it's because that Eric guy wrote it (as opposed to just "laying it out"). But I guess it's all the same to the ripped-off backers at this point.
