Greetings my friends! Tonight the layout ninja on this project (Thomas Baumbach) is hard at work putting the finishing touches on things, if all goes well he will have the final print version ready for me to review tomorrow (Friday) evening.
Again, this is NOT the interactive PDF but rather the simple and straightforward print version of the book. Regardless, once we are 100% certain the bugs are all out and not attacking in swarms we'll submit this to the printer, convert to a PDF for you to use, and send out to backers. Expect Pathfinder RPG next week sometime and 5E in a couple weeks (for the non-interactive PDF version).
IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL BACKERS:
I am getting a lot of messages asking to change address, pledge levels, add-ons, etc. PLEASE REMEMBER: These are not handled via messaging me or email, YOU MUST CONTACT BACKERKIT CUSTOMER SUPPORT in order to make ANY CHANGES to your order. I'm only capitalizing/bolding everything because I want to make sure everyone gets their book and the desired system, add-ons, etc. If you have any questions please reach out to BackerKit.
Following my ramblings is the only email address you'll need from here on out. Make sure you let BackerKit know it's regarding the Mini-Dungeon Tome Kickstarter and use the same email associated with your pledge, thank you!

MDT Map Pack - download issue fixed!
21 days ago

Apparently our files were so large BackerKit couldn't host them! :P
We've found a workaround. Log into BackerKit and if you have the MDT Map Pack add-on you can now access a unique download link.
If it seems to be downloading too slowly please wait awhile- I'm guessing if everyone tries to download at once the server will get bogged down. If you're in no rush I suggest waiting a day or two then trying the link.
If you forgot to purchase the add-on it's not too late, you should still be able to get into the presale and add it here:

[Mini-Dungeon Tome] MDT Map Pack being sent to backers now!
22 days ago
– Wed, Mar 28, 2018 at 12:31:15 AM
Hello my friends!
I'm excited to announce that the MDT Map Pack (formerly VTT Map Pack) is currently being uploaded to BackerKit for anyone who purchased this special add-on during the Kickstarter.
Our cartographer Justin Andrew Mason has added some good stuff to this pack including Tokens, GM, Player, VTT 1, and VTT 2 maps for every single dungeon in the book! You'll notice there are two types of VTT maps- one has all the doors and other stuff you might expect players to see in a dungeon- the other has these removed and leaves simply the walls and floors in case you want to use this in a different fashion for your game. We want to make sure each and every one of you is appeased and can utilize these maps at your table regardless of which VTT you use and in what manner you do so.
Hope everyone is having a great night! More updates coming soon on raw PDF files for backers and books hitting print! Wow, it's been a long and hard road but we're getting so close now I can feel it. Thank you for all your patience and support.

[Mini-Dungeon Tome] Status Update on PDF & Print Books
27 days ago
– Thu, Mar 22, 2018 at 11:58:34 PM
Good afternoon my friends!
I'm hopping on to provide a much needed update to the Mini-Dungeon Tome PDF and print schedule. As it stands we will be late on delivery for the print book but on time for PDF.
The Pathfinder RPG version is nearly complete, we're going through a few final edits in layout and working out bestiary glossary items but are getting very close. In order to submit our print files we'll need to complete both versions. Our goal is to get a non-interactive book-layout version of the PDF out to backers for review before sending it off to the printers. Once the printers have the layout there is a 3-month turnaround for production. We'll do the same for 5th Edition roughly 2 weeks after PFRPG versions go out. Finally, as you peruse the non-interactive version and the printer gets to work we'll be crunching out the handy interactive PDF version for PF and 5E which we'll send to backers via DTRPG just as soon as we have them done.
Sample Screenshots of the Mini-Dungeon Tome in layout below!
Here's a rough timeline and keep in mind, this is based on my current best estimates from the editing and layout teams:
April 1, 2018 - non-interactive PF MDT PDFs delivered
April 14, 2018 - non-interactive 5E MDT PDFs delivered
April 25, 2018 - interactive PDFs delivered for both PF & 5E
June/July 2018 - Print hardcovers delivered to backers, both systems
Thank you very much for your patience. Originally we hoped to deliver much earlier but discovered some bugs and also things we could do to improve the book (and thus your experience) which required some reworking. Ultimately our goal is to bring you the BEST Mini-Dungeon Tome possible so we crossed our fingers and hoped you wouldn't mind us being a little late in order to improve your final experience with this book.
I hope you're all having a great week, tomorrow is Friday! (Which means nothing for cooks, musicians, servers, etc. - all of which I've been) but still- please enjoy the day for this day will never come again!
Your friend in the plane of gaming,
-Jonathan G. Nelson
