Buystarter: Under the Waterless Sea

So as I've mentioned I'd been working on a Polynesian adventure for Neoclassical Geek Revival, dual statted for use with most OSR games. Ideally I would like to get it some nice well polished layout and art, similar to “A Thousand Dead Babies”, “The Gnomes of Levnec”, and “Scourge of the Tikbalang”. I briefly considered a crowdfunding campaign, but those bring with them a whole raft of problems, obligations, and expectations that I didn't want to deal with. Instead I am going to test a program I am going to satirically call “Buystarter”.

I am going to put my incredibly rough looking but fully playable adventure up for sale for a reasonably low price. This low price will last for one month, then I am going to raise the price as if the work had professional art and layout. If will then set about using those funds to hire someone for layout, cartography, and art in that order. Once the work has been completed, I will update the adventure for everyone who has purchased it.

No matter what you have a fully playable adventure for a low price. If you spread the word and get others to buy in, you get a slick looking adventure for a low price. It will be interesting to see how this pans out as a concept.

So what is currently upcoming?

I have been quite terrible in regular content posting, but as it is May two four weekend I figured I'd post a brief primer on what I've been up to:

Upcoming Soon (probably under 6 weeks unless fires occur)
   The 2014 edition of Neoclassical Geek Revival
   Thulian Echoes is nearing its release with LotFP
Written but still in the art and layout-y phases (probably under 3 months)
    An upcoming polynesian adventure/setting
    An adventure about a terrifying faerie queen
    The second of the "fat" books for NGR (after rampaging monsters),  this one is about wizards

 In the "still being fleshed out" skeletal stage where I can use the content but it needs polishing etc (probably within a year)

    An adventure starting location book
    Hall of the Mountain Kings - its dwarves and an underground adventure
    Blackthorne - My dark ages British setting
    Lost and Left to Die:  A third fat book of seed tables for the wilderness

If you've any specific interest about any particular bit let me know
