Poor Brendan’s Update & Bug Hunt

February 16, 2021

The printing company that works with DriveThruRPG for their production is phasing out their saddle stitching. So, many smaller print books that used this as an option are going to have to be converted to a perfect-bound format. (So, in less print jargon, any books that were stapled together, like a comic book, are going to instead have to be bound like a paperback book.)

Some titles are able to be converted automatically (or at least automatically enough that the printer is going to do those. Others, though, are going to require a new cover design, and will have to go through new proofing in order to be available again.

For the Antherwyck Games titles, this affects Poor Brendan’s Almanac, our DragonQuest rules supplement. So, there are a couple points to be made. First, Poor Brendan’s may be unavailable for a short while (though the PDF will still be there, of course; this only affects print hardcopies). But, if we have to revise the print version, we ought to clean up any typos and errors in the current version while we are at it, and maybe make some other updates to the book at the same time. So, if you’ve noticed a typo (or something worse) in the book, let us know, and we’ll get it corrected in the new edition, and we’ll add you to the contributors list in that version, as well.

And, for those of you with just the PDF version, when the new updates are put through, you should be automatically contacted to get the revised copy of your PDF, as well.
