In case you can't watch the video, here's a brief summary (actually, just read it. I expanded upon some things)...
Yeah, things could be going better. That's ok. I'm still plugging away, and so are a few of my fanatical supporters who want to see Venger Satanis and Cha'alt succeed!
I don't make safe, normal, pedestrian, commercial D&D (or any RPG content). Nor am I trying to out-shock anyone with super edgy, controversial on-purpose stuff. If you think a little T&A on the cover is over-the-top, then I can't help you. My writing occasionally comes across as weird or uncomfortable because I'm just being me. Sure, I keep the audience in mind, but at the end of the day, I'm creating content for myself.
Check out Prince of Nothing's blog post. It's insightful. Plus, there was a really nice comment at the end that I want to quote, "Venger Satanis does crazy stuff and when people complain, he doesn't apologize... he fights."
That will stick with me, no matter what. That is what's important. Even if Cha'alt is stillborn, I have a feeling it'll live on... Maybe it'll be one of those time-capsule near-misses of history like Jodorowsky's Dune. Almost got made; unfortunately, the stars just weren't right. But man, that would have been fucking awesome!
Obviously, I don't have a huge fan-base. The only crowd I cater to is the one that loves raw, fun, authentic gaming. Nevertheless, it would be cool to have help getting the word out about Cha'alt - only 19 days before the KS is over! We have a loooong ways to go.
p.s. Almost finished with maps 2 and 3. Will blog about that tomorrow.
