So I’ve been doing the re-read re-read re-read of Roan World at War and running it through Grammarly. That website, is actually pretty amazing for what it offers!
I’ve been doing rewrites of some of the rules to be in the active tense as well as making more sense over all!
Surveys have come in from backers, so now I get to begin processing those, sending out the initial rewards of the rpg game, and more importantly, working with artists so that I can begin showing off the work going into the book!
So I’ve only a few more days of waiting to go before kickstarter funds Roan: World at War. This will mean I can go forward with some of the early bonuses for folks, and begin getting required information such as character art, and discussing what and where their characters will appear within said art (for the larger scenic pieces).
Its been a busy week, one that has had my concentration drained thanks to work, but I continue to work on progressing Roan: World at War which surpassed its kickstarter funding goal, thanks to so many wonderful people!
Currently I am waiting the 2 week period for the processing of payment before I officially begin reaching out to folks with the survey as I want to be sure that all clients have no issues come up!
Be ready for plenty of news though on Roan, and the story of the war itself as I begin to really push on the writing balances, and additions!
A grand Huzzah folks, we’ve hit the 10K for Roan: World at War!
This fully helps to ensure the development of the game, and don’t you worry about the additional things like the Naval Expansion/Airship Expansion, those will surely come, it’ll just take longer, but they will come, and I do hope that many of you enjoy it!
I also want to thank many of you for always being supportive of the game, and expect a special game to be run at BABSCON 2020, with the entrance fee being setup as donations for support to special needs!
Happy Friday folks, and I do hope you all are doing well!
The kickstarter still sits shy of 10K and after trying to reach out to specific parties, I am now worried about one who has continued to not responded about the 5K they have put in, hopefully it does not become a case of that backer suddenly disappearing at the end.
On other news, I have been invited as a guest for Babscon! CHEERS!
I will also be running Roan: World at War for some lucky people who put in for the Babscon charity, so continue to keep an eye on Babscon to learn more!
Help spread the Roan: World at War Kickstarter and lets hope for a successful game!
Currently we are at 9,189$ thanks to so many people, and one particular backer who put in 5,000$ whom I reached out to to make sure that they didn’t accidentally add an extra 0. Still waiting to hear from them!
This means folks will be receiving 4 additional countries as well as an e-book of the Roan comic. All of this as long as nobody has their account bounce (which can happen) but I am looking forward to bringing these to you all!
Roan has had a lot of support, and the future of Roan is a big thank you to that world from me, in the form of a video game that I look forward to working with folks I’ve met.
From there its working with the crew to enter into the video game market properly, but don’t worry, long as fans of Roan are around, content will be made!
Continue to watch the kickstarter, and please put in your support to help out!
Keep your eyes here as I await new art from RavenPuff of the delightful Lazy Company!
So next week, September 14 2019, Roan: World at War will kickstart the next book in the aim at bringing you all a Platoon scale of warfare.
The book will begin as an e-book with optional order for a hardback via the website DriveThruRPG. The reason behind this is that it will cut down on the shipping costs, and make it more accessible to gamers worldwide who want a hardback version of the game.
World at War aim is to provide Platoon combat with each Platoon represented by a single character marker. Your troops will be provided skill lists, unit lists, special unit lists, equipment, and vehicles.
The combat rules aim at providing intense military combat in the form of phases. Platoons can move their full distance during their movement phase, then attack during their combat phases which there are 3 of. Phases are important as they are a measurement of time when calling in distant support such as artillery, or air support.
Currently the build provides two armies, that being the Roan Military and the Ratvarian Military. This is due to the amount of options that have to be balanced. Stretch goals will include adding additional countries as expansion books which will be provided to backers of the book.
Other standalone expansions that will be in the works are rules for ship/airship creation for air and naval combat.
High tier backers will be able to have their character(s) presented in the book, higher tier backers will receive a would cut figure of their commander plus stand as a representation of their platoon upon their game mat.
I’ve been hard at work with this game for a few years now, but I look forward to you all enjoying the system and using it along side the original Roan RPG book.
The aim is to provide a stand alone system that can be used in combination with the main Roan book. Platoons under the World at War rules, surrounded a weapons lab. Special forces under the Roan RPG rules, enter the facility to steal/destroy weapons of the opposing force.
More information will be provided so keep an eye here, as well as on the Roan Kickstarter site once it goes up!
