Latest Updates from Our Project:

MDT Map Pack - download issue fixed!
8 months ago – Thu, Mar 29, 2018 at 02:01:54 AM

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:

Happy Gaming!

[Mini-Dungeon Tome] MDT Map Pack being sent to backers now!
8 months 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
8 months 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,

Estimated Print Delivery Date
10 months ago – Thu, Feb 01, 2018 at 12:56:32 AM

Hello my friends! I hope this message finds each and every one of you well this fine evening.

The past few weeks we've been crunching things in order to get files to the printer but due to various family emergencies (mentioned in previous updates) we have fallen behind schedule. Our print delivery date for the Mini-Dungeon Tome was estimated for April 2018 but now it's looking more likely to be a late May 2018 release. However, we do hope to have PDFs out to everyone by February/March.

I will keep you posted and appreciate your patience as we play catch up after team members spent quality time with their loved ones after great loss. 

Happy Gaming my friends! Remember to appreciate those special people in your life and tell them how you feel while you still have the chance.

Art, Maps, Conversion work done / Editing 70% complete!
10 months ago – Thu, Jan 18, 2018 at 11:17:26 PM

The conversion work, new artwork, and redone maps for the Mini-Dungeon Tome are now complete! 

Editing is well underway and the original Mini-Dungeons have been completely revised for a smoother gaming experience. We're now moving into editing the stretch goal MDs as well as some of the special additions you unlocked in this Kickstarter. As editing is completed for each section of the book our layout artist Thomas Baumbach jumps right in to add the incoming Mini-Dungeons. With this method things should move along quite nicely and we're still on schedule for a hardcover delivery in April 2018, the PDF will come much sooner- perhaps early February!

I'm so excited to share the final book with you and look forward to using this book with my own personal gaming group. It's a truly useful tome which is looking beautiful in layout thus far.

I'll share some screenshots as we get closer to publishing the PDF!

Thank you all for your belief in us, we can't wait until you have the final book in hand.

Happy Gaming!
