I must have missed this. New Patron book? Tell me more.

Art and layout for multiple Patrons are happening (the writing is all done). The link above takes you to a 'preview' version of one of the Patrons — that particular Patron (The Man In The Green Velvet Coat) was actually originally worked up in 2013 for a game, and has literary origins as inspiration.

I'll have a timeline (and other sorts of previews) for folks as things progress further...

Thanks. I'm definitely interested in some cool new patrons.

Any new news on this patron book? I was looking at the unpretty version this morning and it reminded me how much I am looking forward to the pretty version.

Ye gods! The learning curve!

That, and the interruptions. Doing it all myself means it'll be what I want it to be in the end, but it also means that I have to be able to do all the things...

My plan is to have an improved version of the preview this fall (by October Somethingth?), and the complete book... well... I dare not say.

But the improved version will give everyone even more to play around with (and to look at), while the complete book is in production.

Oh, don't worry, when things are ready, I'll say something...

I have pushed back the revamp slightly, wanting it to occur closer to when the 4th Printing of the rules comes along.
