Well, they want an October

Well, they want an October release. So lets grant that they'll be on time. Probably need two months of prep time, and printing time for october. So that means they need to be 100 percent done sometime in August. Now in August is also GenCon. Which will probably be Posthuman Studio big/moderate push for presales, and running demos.

Statically, I believe the best time to do a rpg kickstarter, is sometime in may and june. You dont want to run it in july, as folks are pretending to save money for gencon in august.

And lets say Posthuman Studio, will actually want to incorporate any feedback from the Open Playtest that'll happen during the kickstarter.

So this means that the Kickstarter and Play test cant be in July, as the kickstarter and presumably the open playtest will last 21 days. Leaving them some 10-ish day of managing the close of the kickstarter, and incorporate the changes before they will have get ready to leave for GenCon. Maybe two weeks is generious so maybe they'll get get 17 days before getting ready for Gencon. 17ish days doesnt seem like a lot of time.

So if they run it in June, that'll give them about about five weeks to manage the end of kickstarter and incorporate any changes. That seems more doable, if done at a running pace.

So my money is in May, That'll give them about 9 weeks to manage the kickstarter and incorporate any changes. Attend GenCon and get the printing started for October.

"Posthuman Studios." Please.

"Posthuman Studios." Please. :)

And we wouldn't be running a playtest if we didn't intend to take into account feedback -- it's a playtest, not a preview!

I'm sure some feedback will be taken into account, but with your release in October, I cant help but imagine that the book is like 85 percent done. So unless the playtest incites revolt in how terrible it is. I am curious how mallable it is, or what kind of feedback you can take in.

You'd be surprised how much a game can change in a few months. Writing mechanics can be difficult, but it's also not impossible to rush. Back in my heyday I was doing like 1800 words a day on mechanics and design alone, plus change on additional fluff.

Awesome

I'm going to be DMing a group soon, so perfect timing. I always regretted not being part of the Transhuman open playtest, even with my real name being one of the backers in the back of the book, so here's to making up for that one.

I see that you pledged before giving us the link. Don't worry, I'm not going to judge... that harshly. ;)

I Failed to become immortal. Does that make me a poor transhuman?

The character likeness pledge vanished while I was asleep :(
Timezone differences suck.

Oh well, now I've got to work out if I want 1 or 4 copies of the corebook...

Maybe not as long as you think, although I hope you won't mind if he's a parrot. Sorry, you did write, "neo-avian" in the original post.

I've been at a professional

I've been at a professional conference all week and had to host a party *while the kickstarter launched*. Still bitter I missed the Immortalization window, but managed to tell a client, "Hold on. I have to back a kickstarter" and get in on the next best level. ;-)

Fun twist: He turned out to be an Expanse fan and will be backing it as well, heh.
