Reality Check: 3 October 2020

We’re back! Building Series upates! Hippogryph Codex news! DoubleZero teasers! This is the Reality Check, the Dancing Lights Press weekly newsletter for 3 October 2020.

We are fully back in action this week! I want to thank everyone for the support and well-wishes while I was sick. I’m feeling like myself again, and am psyched to have a  regular production schedule again. Let’s just jump into what’s going on here in the kitchen!

Building Series

Adventure Generator Volumes 1 & 2 are finally out, so I can cross those off my list! If you haven’t picked them up yet, go download them now! You can save 20% by purchasing them as part of the Building Series bundle! The next title in the line will be Building Monsters, which centers on creating backgrounds for creatures an villains akin to the way player characters are handled in Building Characters. That will be the last in the Building Series for a while, as I focus on Hippogryph, DoubleZero, and getting some behind-the-scenes things in order.

DoubleZero System

The cat is out of the bag that I’m working on a DoubleZero Guide Manual and a setting called Mansions & Misfits. I don’t want to tease any more about those until I’m caught up with other projects. As I change things around behind the scenes, I will hopefully be able to announce release dates at the same time I provide more details on those titles. There is a whole range of support planned for 2021. Stay tuned.

Hippogryph System

Throwing the looming caveat of “unless I get dreadfully sick again”, the Hippogryph Codex will finally be released this month. It is awesome. It is everything that I have hyped it up to be, and then some. Before the release I will be providing some more previews and talking up its best features. There’s a ton of support planned for 2021, including a Guide Book and some settings. Again, I’m not going to give any release dates until I’m certain the ground underneath me is 100 stable.

Recent News and Updates

Reality Check: 3 October 2020

This weekly update is called the Reality Check because it’s designed to hold me accountable. I want to clearly communicate what’s going on with Dancing Lights Press products in development. My goal is to set realistic expectations for new releases, and give you a glimpse inside the process of lo-fi publishing.
I want to thank you for your continued support. If you’ve loved something I’ve published, please consider taking a moment to give it a five-star rating and a favorable review at DriveThruRPG. It’s a small thing that has a lot of impact.
