Let me tell you what that guy Jerry is up to…

Hello Humans!

 Here is an GODSEND Agenda production update to keep everyone in the loop.

Not much to share except we are on track, and everything is looking good. My only fear so far are the supply chain shortages everyone is experiencing. But more about that when we get to that phase of the project. I’m focusing on getting the book done and ready to go.

Below is a timeline of where we are

THE MANUSCRIPTS

  • Cultural Consulting: The book is in the hands of our capable consultant
  • Phase Two Edits: Once the manuscripts are back and sorted, they go back into editing for another pass.
  • Layouts: Once the book is edited and done with the second pass of edits, the book goes into layouts
  • Peer review: When the book is ready, I hand it over to all of you for one final pass looking for gaffs, errors, and blatant mistakes.

THE ART

Almost all the artwork is complete, but I know that I may need a few pieces here and there once the layout starts.

  • Introduction: Artwork 100% done
  • Chapter One Character Creation: Art is 100% done
  • Chapter Three Powers: Artwork 90% done
  • Chapter Four Equipment, Gadgets, and Artifacts: Artwork 90% done
  • Chapter Five System: Artwork 75% done
  • Chapter Six Game Mastery: Artwork 50% done
  • Chapter Seven Agendas: Artwork not started
  • Chapter Eight Adversaries: Artwork 30% done

Overall, the book is on track, and it looks fantastic. I’m please with how the book is turning out. It reads like no other superheroic roleplaying game. The look and feel of this game exceed any expectation of what I envisioned, and I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all.

Below are a few pieces from the book

THANK YOU! GODSEND Agenda Kickstarter is a success!

Hello Humans!

First off; YOU DID IT!

I want to thank you all for bringing this book to life in the way I envisioned. Thank you.

You helped fund a Kickstarter and make it a success without all the bells and whistles. Almost $10k over the goal, and I never had to promise dice bags, t-shirts, or logo emblazoned fez hats. It happened because of your confidence, grace, and generosity in the project. Like a great gestalt gamer, you rose with your powers combined and made GODSEND Agenda a reality.

You all deserve a huge hug and kiss for your combined assistance. Again, thank you.

What’s Next?

The book is done, but…

It’s time to get on my grind, get the manuscripts consulted in various ways, commission all the artwork, edit and layout.

International Fulfillment

I’m talking to a company about international fulfillment so those not in ‘Merica won’t have to sell kidneys to get their books (fingers crossed).

Pantheon, Epochs, and beyond

Finish off all the tidbits left to be done with the writing—lots of moving parts that must be reconciled in the game. If I wanted the easy way out, I would give you the finished portions that already exist, but I want to set the bar high for a superheroic game of action-adventure activism: no half steps or cut corners. GODSEND Agenda will be the RPG Full Monty- prepare to have your eyes bleed from copious amounts of cosmic awesome!

Pledge Manager

There will be a pledge manager for everyone to upgrade once things are locked in and ready to go.

Putting on the PJs and going night-night

Take a break and recharge. The behind the scenes of a KS is filled with a deluge of emails requesting or offering things. Some are sincere, most are trash, but all need a reply.

Again, Thank You for the generous help, and I hope I meet your expectation when the final product is finally delivered.

GODSEND Agenda: How will you make a difference?

Work is almost done, and the Kickstarter is in the planning stages.

Prepare to change the world

Below is a work in progress character sheet for GODSEND Agenda. The game runs on 2D10 and is quite simple to play. However, the most important part of the game is what you do with them, even more so than your powers.

The big question GODSEND Agenda asks is; How will you change the world?

GODSEND Agenda: Pantheons

A pantheon is a team of super humans who have banded together for a common goal or Agenda. There are several benefits to forming a group:

  • Teamwork toward a common goal is easier to do when you have like-minded beings working in that direction.
  • There is protection in numbers from one’s enemies.
  • The team has a much larger pool of resources. Teams often intermingle their resources for the greater whole, enabling them to buy weapons, research and scientific equipment, and team gadgets. Characters can pool their Experience Points to buy large ticket items such as expensive bases of operation or a group vehicle or communication devices. To do so, they set aside Experience Points used for group endeavors.
  • A team of Heroes has a much higher profile than an individual, and they are thus able to channel more Ka.

Each Pantheon has unique Boons and Banes. As a group, the Players build their Pantheon and then give it a name.

Pantheons have traits that define them much like characters, and these traits help define the team.
