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:

Major Project Status Updates!

Postby zemming » Tue Apr 01, 2014 5:27 am

Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to post a status update on the project so everyone knows about the progress we've made so far.

To begin with, we are done with the major formatting for both Book One and Two. We still need to add the section break images and memory orb images in Book Two and make sure everything looks good, but we are currently redesigning the section break image (again), so I'm holding off inserting them until we finalize the design. We also still have to layout the table of contents, the title page, the copyright page, basically all the stuff that isn't the actual story. But to reiterate, the major formatting is done, the rest of it will take time, but we're making good progress.

As far as signups, we do not have a concrete date on when those will open. We're still working with a couple companies to work out the logistics of everything. Although we could open up signups today, I don't think it's fair to you guys to do that until we have all our ducks in a row.



And just one more thing since you guys are all awesome, I'm going to go ahead and release the PDF of Book One. But, we need your help. We need you to look for any odd formatting goofs. We worked hard making sure we didn't miss anything, but it never hurts to have an extra set of eyes looking it over. Just sound off in the forums what chapters you looked over and just go through and make sure there are no inconsistencies. If you spot something, just note the page and line number and let us know what we missed. We aren't looking to change our formatting decisions at this point, we just want to make sure everything is consistant and looks good.

As usual, if you have any questions, just post them in the forum, or join us on the irc channel.


Edit: file remove, and IRC link changed to the actual IRC webchat.

Masterful use of comic sans. It really complements the mood of the story. :pinkiesmile:

Thank you sora. After people questioned the use of Garamond, we decided comic sans was a better choice for a primary font.

We also went with Papyrus Condensed for the terminal and radio messages. Condensed instead of regular Papyrus just to save space.


We feel everyone will be much more satisfied with the books this way.

And then, when I am too broken to go on, I will float my dying body right down the throat of the darkness and make it choke on me.”
