ADOM Lite RPG is shipping today (yeah!)

Hi everyone!

It was a long day and a longer night. Quite long actually for a normal working week (which in December usually is somewhere between 50 to 60 hours due to the way IT service business seems to work in our region). But it is done. In one monumental act of energy my wife Melanie, my good friend Claudia and me managed to pack all ADOM Lite RPGs (for all the folks who up to know validated their shipping addresses). There are a few more that need to be done at some point (because they are moving right now, have not yet validated their addresses or whatever) but the vast majority of all RPGs is going to be send out in about two hours. Read on for the dirty details...

The Eagle Has Landed

16 boxes full of ADOM Lite RPG copies arrived today:

Boy, that looks like quite a bit of work :-) And here they are:

I'm still waiting for some special packaging material (after my lessons learned with the postcards at the weekend). I had recruited the help of friends of family in getting the stuff packaged so that we will start on Wednesday packing stuff (and probably shipping by Thursday). I still am optimistic and hope that we manage to get all RPGs packed in one fell swoop but we will see. Usually things take a lot longer than I imagine in the beginning. I will keep you updated :-)

It feels awesome to finally get this done (although I just noticed that I completely forgot about the ADOM Lite RPG character sheet I still wanted to design - I so far have always been using hand-crawled notes and still need to get that thing up; maybe it will be a little late - but as it is an extra I hope that you will forgive me for that ;-) )

Reverse ADOM postcard quest (almost) finished (for now)!

Yeah, it's done. After a very, very long day I am happy to report that I have personalized 150 postcards promised during the "Resurrect ADOM development" crowdfunding campaign with an individualized drawing on each of them :-) In the middle I was not sure if I would have enough ideas but now there are 150 iconic scenes from ADOM, hand-drawn by me :-)

Here's how orderly my table was in the beginning:

I won't show the finished cards here but maybe people would like to post pictures when they receive their cards. If you feel like it please post them either in the forums or in our Facebook group. The cards will be posted to the mail tomorrow morning (right now it's 10:45pm over here).

I'm curious to hear what you think when you receive them. Collected they would make for a cute exhibition I think :-) And now I'm off for today in order to cool my hurting hand ;-)

Next up: Packing about 480 ADOM Lite RPG issues to have them sent out before Christmas (they should arrive by tomorrow at my location over here - after the experience with the postcards today I will start packing them by Tuesday or Wednesday because I this afternoon ordered some special materials which should greatly simplify packing). I also already have called for support - so hopefully this will go quickly (as I don't need to come up with individualized drawings anymore ;-) ). I'll keep you all updated!
