NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS / Re: Tri Tac Spotlight is out!
« Last post by ORtrail on June 10, 2020, 02:45:50 PM »
I sent the revised Roman adventure back to John yesterday, and the images for both adventures earlier today.  I'm usually good at adding to an adventure given more time to write, but I'm fairly happy with how they turned out.

Also, I meant to offer to create some area maps using the Other World Mapper software, if any are needed for the newsletter.  Creating things like towns or dungeons are possible, but the bigger area maps are easier and I'm still learning how to use the program. 

For example, for a First Contact Team RPG scenario, I did a quick map of a moon location.





Here is a map I created for a Fringeworthy alternate, where things have taken a different path for the Plymouth, MA colony.

For smaller game companies, boxed sets would only work if you use a Kickstarter.  Everything paid for in advance.  Though a pandemic could come along and cause issues, but what are the odds? 

There is the issue of a bad print run (where it's not the printer at fault) and that could be very bad, as you have to push the 'bad books' onto the backers or eat the cost of reprinting a corrected version.  That happened to some Kickstarter last year, but I don't recall the details.  Nothing I backed or I'd remember it very well. 

You'd need a place to store the boxed sets while you mail them out to backers.  Some place not prone to floods, or water leaks, or fires.

So, boxed sets, a really cool product with some risk to it versus the POD option.  Someone needs to offer a boxed set POD!   :D

Box sets would not be something we can get printed in a print on demand format, it would require us to have a batch of books printed at a normal print house as well as have boxes printed, then put together by us and shipped by us. If Tri Tac had actual employees that might be a plan, but at this time no one gets paid to work for Tri Tac Games and there is no big office or warehouse to process physical sales.

Sorry ORTrail, I had a kerfuffle with the mail server, but I got both of your docs and I'm editing them right now! Thanks again for your submission!

I always go for the hardcover, if possible.  HH has a crazy long title on that spine. 

You could always try and bring back boxed sets.  Okay, not realistic, but I still miss those from my early RPG collecting days.

If it was the softcover they don't allow titles on the spines in the pod process, if it was the Hardback it was because it was the first hardback i had done PoD for and couldn't get the title approved in the process and chose to go without the title in order to get the book to pass the print approval. Sadly it's not like a print house that sets everything up for you and ignores limitation on the spine. I got the title on the Hardcover Hardwired Hinterland but was disappointed with the size the font ended up being to fit into the tiny space they allowed for print on spines.

I was thinking the thread title could also apply to the maps made for various alternate worlds.  At first glance you recognize the locations, but as you look closer the differences start to appear.  For example (I'm still learning to use the Other World Mapping software I bought a few months back) here is a real world location I recreated for an alternate; Plymouth, Massachusetts.

It was only a matter of time; I picked up a POD copy of the Fringeworthy D20 rules.  I one quirk I noticed, which it shares with my POD Everywhen RPG hardcover is that the title is NOT on the spine.  Not a big deal, since it will go into the Tri Tac section of the bookshelf.

I emailed the second adventure out yesterday evening, just an FYI in case it ended up in a spam folder or something.
