On Roleplaying cont.

Continuing from yesterday, I was looking at the Onyx Path Publishing site today, on their current projects status. They have status bars for everything they currently have going, and apparently things have 9 stages. So I looked at stuff there to see where it stood - the stuff that I'm interested in that wasn't mentioned int he pamphlet I downloaded yesterday, that is.

Please note that all this info is copied from their website onto my blog. Keep in mind also that I am only listing what I am interested in.

The times listed on this page indicate intent, and are not a guarantee. As time progresses, circumstances may interfere with our intent. Details subject to change. Keep checking back here for the most up-to-date information.
Progress bars list nine (9) production stages: first draft, redlines, second draft, development, editing, post-editing development, layout and art direction, CCP approvals, and release. PDFs are released first, then any changes are collected and made before final print proofs are ordered.

ON THE HORIZON…

VTM – V20 Ready-Made Characters.
  1 of 9
WTA – Kinfolk: A book on Kinfolk presents the Apocalypse War from the point of view of characters who aren’t the Sacred Warriors. They’re just normal folks with a monster lurking in the foliage of the family tree, who may or may not know what’s really going on—the Imperial Guard to the Garou’s Space Marines. The whole field has a lot of really meaty horror to get into, from the paranoid conspiracy angle—Waco from the Branch Davidians’ side—to one family with a shotgun against Banes, fomori, and everything else. Developer: Stew Wilson
