We’re rolling right along with 15 days left in the campaign and we should hit the 175% funded mark by the end of the day! Huge thanks to all of the backers so far for your support. Here’s a quick look at some campaign stats so far:

  •  1,221 backers (783 from the United States, 153 from Canada, 124 from the United Kingdom, 79 from Australia, 82 from other countries)
  •  1,363 books pledged for
  •  16,468 video plays

With half the campaign left to go, there’s still plenty of time to pledge if you’d like to be one of the first to get your hands on HeroBook GM!

Hello to ECCC attendees!

We had an awesome time exhibiting at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle this past weekend! Thanks to everyone who dropped by our booth to check our HeroBook. It was super cool to meet so many backers from the first project who were excited to back again. Thank you for your hospitality – I have a good feeling that we’ll be back next year! 

Content Preview: Place Name Generator

With the project over 100% funded, I’ve been getting to work writing the content that will appear in HeroBook GM, and I’m excited to share a preview of one of the many tables and generators that you’ll find inside the book. Rather than create a basic table of place names that would be exhausted fairly quickly, I’m instead using multiple d100 tables that are designed to be used in conjunction with each other, giving you thousands of different potential combinations. In the case of this place name generator, you’ll be able to generate several different permutations of standard and exotic names, as well as location types. To get new example results, just refresh the page.

Preview the place name generator here and try it yourself!

If you get a chance to check it out, feel free to share your thoughts, as all of this content is subject to change based on backer feedback.
