Two updates in one week, has the world gone mad? Well, perhaps. Or maybe I have. I floated an idea around with the community about splitting my next book into two. I wasn’t sure of the response, but in my heart, I felt like it was the right decision for the characters and story. Thankfully, the overwhelming response has been positive.
Okay, I’ve been teasing this for some time now – but at last I am very proud (and ridiculously excited) to officially announce that DestinyQuest: The Roleplaying Game will be coming to Kickstarter early next year!
First off, sorry that news has been scarce this year. It’s been an odd year, all things considered – as I think we can all attest to. I’ve also had many work projects that have eaten into my time, so I’ve not had a chance to sit down and start penning DestinyQuest V yet. But rest assured that I keep a notepad handy, and I am always scribbling down ideas in readiness.
I think it’s fair to start off with an apology. An apology for this year. That might sound odd as I finally released Book IV of the DestinyQuest saga – The Raiders of Dune Sea – in my opinion the crowning glory of my game writing so far. But I am sure, as fans and kickstarter backers are aware, it was a tough process – with me unfortunately falling foul of a disreputable publisher, who – despite my best efforts (and money) to rectify and fulfil promises – still decided it was okay to burn me in the end.
Thanks to the amazing support of fans during the Kickstarter campaign, a number of stretch goals were unlocked, including two special backing tracks to accompany the Raiders of Dune Sea. These two stunning soundscapes have been composed by DQ fans, Ben van Gastel and Antal Nusselder – who together form My Endless Y (www.myendlessy.com).
