Again, the new campaign won't launch until your Death Dealing goodies have shipped! That's super important to me!
And yes, I'm in Florida but my part of the Atlantic coast was spared any disruption from the storms. Thanks to everyone who reached out. <3
Thank you again for your amazing support!
Production and delivery update! And a Cleric subclass!

Hello, Rogues! Everything is in production and we're just waiting for shipments from the manufacturers. Almost all the digital goodies have been shipped so if you haven't received something, please reach out to me.
I've received the stickers and mini kits (they look GREAT!) and we're now just waiting on the zines, hardcovers, and decks of cards. I expect shipping to begin by the end of this month and I should be able to hand-deliver some rewards in-person at the Baltimore Comic-Con in September.
Here's some updated art to share...
Starting with mockups of the final Zine and Hardcover covers. An early version showed a red, fiery sky but that didn't really fit the world of shadowy rogues. These night-time, dusky colors look great and the Spot UV varnish on the zines should look amazing. Subtle and shadowy is the way to go...
And here are the inside-covers of the zine. The inside back cover shows some of the tarot-themed designs from an early iteration of the Death Dealing deck...
And what's next? The Meta Domain cleric...
Let me start by saying that the next campaign won't begin until your Death Dealing loot has shipped! That's super important to me. While we're waiting for the books and cards to arrive from the printers, Kickstarter has approved the "Coming Soon" page for my next 5E project which you can find at this handy URL... prayershandbook.com
I'll share all sort of details about that new subclass as the launch gets closer. I'm super excited for it!
I expect the next update from me will include the Death Dealing character sheets!
Thank you again for yoru amazing support!

Here are tokens to use with your Virtual Table Tops. I've uploaded them to a free page on Patreon for everyone to download...
If you ordered a PDF copy of Intoximancy, e-mails with instructions went out yesterday and today. I see quite a few copies have already been downloaded!
Over the next few days, links for the downloadable 3D-STLs will go out as well!
Last call for ENNIE Award voting
Tomorrow is the last day to vote in the ENNIE Awards where my Intoximancy has been nominated for Best Supplement. If you haven't yet voted, there's still time to be counted! https://vote.ennie-awards.com/vote/2023/
Thank you againf or the kind responses to the Death Dealing PDF! I love all the feedback and kind words!
I hope you're having a great weekend!
Additional digital loot (STLs and PDFs) and production update! And the Shuffling Mound STL

Yesterday was great! So many of you have already downloaded Death Dealing and the response so far has been amazing! Thank you for the kind words! Some of thatpraise will end up on the back cover of the print books! :)
Something I should have said in yesterday's post: if you ordered additional digital goodies like STLs or the Intoximancy PDF, those will be delivered separately over the next few days!
Here's the plan going forward...
The digital goodies will ship over the next week (this reduces the strain on my web-server and helps me keep the rewards organized). This includes the Intoximancy PDF, The Middle Age graphic novel PDFs, the VTT tokens, and the fillable character sheets.
The print books (both hardcover and zine versions) and DeathDealingcarddecks will be going into production in the next week which means they will start shipping in about 4 weeks. (This also means if you catch any issues in the PDF over the next few days - like a typo or a missing Saving Throw DC - let me know and I might be able to get those fixes in!) I will share the final covers and back-covers here when they are off to the printers.
The Death Dealing Rogue minis have been cast and are already in production.
I'll keep you all updated every step of the way. I knew unlocking all those stretch goals would push the schedule back but I hope all that extra production time can be felt in the final books and goodies!
And now, more art...
I've finished sculpting a downloadable STL of the Shuffling Mound and it's currently free this month to my Patreon supporters at patreon.com/steveconley and it will be available in my web shop starting next month.
I'm also sculpting The House which currently is gigantic. I don't know how anyone will be able to print it! It's nearly 10 inches tall, nearly as wide, and sits on a 6-inch base.
It needs a lot of technical editing to make it printable but as soon as it's ready, I'll let everyone know.
