Hey everyone! We wanted to just take a moment to let you all know that the the scenario book has been added to DriveThruRPG and added to the Jiangshi Bundle. You all should have already received your download links for the original material, and also should have received a notification about a couple of updates to the core book. We added some content, but we're done tweaking it. HERE is the link to the scenario book! Our next steps will be to get all the material to the printer. In the meantime please have a safe and fun New Year celebration. 

Online Play Resources

Because of one of the questions since the release of the PNP files, Banana Chan decided to put this resource together for those of you who would like to get online games of Jianghsi: Blood in the Banquet Hall going. She put this together in a couple of hours simply because she wants you all to be able to dive in and experience this game as easily as possible. I don't know if you're aware, but she's awesome.

Just remember, you will still need to provide your own dice, or at least have access to a dice rolling program.

HERE IS THE GOOGLE SLIDES RESOURCE!!!

Have fun!!!

Thank you all so much for your support and patience through all this! We wanted to send you all a quick note to let you know the Print and Play files have all been sent out! We're really excited to see you all playing this out in the wild and hearing your feedback! Please don't hesitate to leave reviews on the DriveThruRPG listing too!

PLEASE NOTE the scenario book is in layout, and will be sent out separately to all of you backers within the next few weeks. 

We're waiting on the layout of that one component and then we'll be ready to send the physical products to print. Don't worry. We'll keep you all updated every step of the way.

Ooops!

FYI, when we sent the PNP files earlier today, we sent the incorrect game board. The file has been updated.

Production, Print and Play (PNP), and Surveys
about 1 month ago – Thu, Dec 03, 2020 at 08:54:30 PM

Hey everyone! Now that we're in December, we wanted to give you all a good update regarding production, layout, and Print And Play files for all of you. 

Production

You all have been absolute champions through this process. You all have continued to spread the word about this awesome game, and have been inspirations to us through this last half of 2020, when things have gotten really crazy all around the world. That said, we wouldn't be in this position without your help and without the hard work and dedication of our production team.

As of our last update, we let you know that almost all of the print components were laid out and we shared a preview of the box. Well, as of now, we've managed to put some final polish on all those components, started chewing on some images for the custom dice sets, added some great art to the core book, and (and this is the exciting part) received ALL of the scenarios, even those we thought we were going to have to wait on. Those should all be through preliminary layout over the next few days!

All of these components will be going to the factory once we wrap them up and can get them all through preliminary proofing there. What does this mean for you all? Well, as the factory takes the components we send them, they'll be able to update us at multiple points through the proofing and production process, and we'll definitely be keeping you all in the loop with some pictures of the components and we'll even be trying to get you all some behind the scenes videos on the proofing approvals. 

Print and Play

Now, you may also be noting that these aren't at the factory yet, so we won't be able to have physical copies in your hands by the end of the year, though that's still looking good for sometime in Q1. However, you will have the Print and Play version of the game sent to you sometime this month! We're going to make sure this is all sent out to you all and in your hands before any digital versions are made available to the general public, because again, without you all we wouldn't even be in the position. 

We'll continue to update you each and every step of the way, and can't wait to hear from you when you start to dive into the game. 

Surveys

Most of you have managed to complete your BackerKit surveys and get them back to us. We'll be keeping the BackerKit open a few more weeks, probably until the end of the year. HOWEVER we strongly encourage you to complete this as soon as possible. We have about 100 backers who have yet to complete theirs, and we want to make sure you are able to get your rewards as part of the bulk freight shipments, and without incurring any additional shipping fees.  If you have not completed your survey, or have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us by sending us a message here through the Kickstarter, or through the BackerKit. We'll get back to you as soon as possible. We're here to help and have already helped dozens of you get through that process. 

Questlings

Finally, we want to share that Banana Chan is also working on another really awesome project which is in its last week. Questlings is an RPG-inspired children's book series and RPG game system about finding your Inner Hero. This project for a children's book and RPG is going to be such a wonderful family game. We hope you are able to get in and support it. You can check it out RIGHT HERE!
