After putting it off far too long, the forum has now been updated to the latest version. The old forum was actually too old to update easily, and relied on a mod that I only recently found for the newer version.

Please let me know if you find anything not working properly.

Oh, and one more thing, forum registration is open again :twilightsmile:

Fallout Equestria Dust Jackets

Postby L9OBL » Wed Aug 15, 2012 12:43 pm

Well as most of you know there's a this guy really untalented fuckwad working on finishing screwing up the Dust Jackets for the book, most people know the status of the Dust Jackets already but heres the Rundown:

Jackets are 90% complete I just have one flap on each of them to fill in with the appropriate quote from Kkat and all the appropriate accreditations. That's all been sorted out on the facebook page so I'm dropping the quotes here for my convienance :

1 "By writing in first person, I immediately pull the reader into Littlepip’s head. I’ve tried to make her a sympathetic character, one whose flaws and worries make her somepony the audience can empathize with, maybe even relate to"

2 "The story starts out intentionally slow and seemingly rudderless -- an attempt to capture the sandbox feel of the Wasteland -- but those first chapters are where I sow a great number of plot seeds and Chekhov’s Guns. "

3 ‎"In the case of Calamity and Velvet Remedy, I wanted to design Littlepip’s first two companions to be evocative of the show. While they needed to be unique, well-rounded characters who were crafted with their plot arcs in mind, I also wanted them to echo back to the show in a way that helped the readers really feel they were reading My Little Pony characters and not just people who happened to be ponies."

4 ‎"I originally anticipated the story might reach thirty-six chapters, with each chapter being maybe fifteen pages long. But then, I’ve always been egregiously incapable of properly estimating the length of any story I work on."

5 " I may have finished writing my story, but Fallout: Equestria took on a life of its own long ago. There are so many artists, writers, composers and more who are continuing to add fresh, wonderful work to the expanding world of this story that it's no longer my own and it hasn't been for a long time. And really, that is a beautiful and amazing thing."

Thanks to Patryk Bucholc for hunting these down.

As usual I will livestream me working on them at: http://www.livestream.com/l9obl Though I have lots of packing I need to do so that won't happen until after I get back from my martial arts class, Which should be around 22:00 Eastern time, maybe earlier. (so try in about 6 - 6.5 hours from this post's umm post lol) either way I'll post on the facebook page.

I think that's it for now, if I've forgotten anything feel free to tell me in as rude a manner you deem appropriate and I will address the issue appropriately :pinkiecrazy:

And once these are finished, how do you go about getting them printed?

I'll submit the finished dust jackets in a multitude of formats, .jpg, .png, .PDF etc and you just take them down to your local kinkos or staples or ETC. if there are no printshops by you there are some online ones (Like kinkos online) that will print and ship them to you. Just be sure to give them the appropriate file format (some places prefer .pdf, others .png and etc) I'll make a full post with instructions when it's all done.
