This has nothing to do with the internal matter I discussed with Joel.

This seems to be the question you are referring to and to this question your answer was apt.

You don't think that business practices involving finance are an internal matter?

This seems like you're asking about internal organization of Pinnacle, which they have repeatedly stated they will not discuss.

Again, this seems like you're asking about Pinnacle's internal organization, which, again, this is something that Pinnacle has repeatedly stated they will not discuss.

Just sayin...

Representatives of the company made claims that D:N would not effect HOE. Because they have made these claims it does not breach any ethics to ask for elaboration. I have been asked not to broach the subject of why HOE has been delayed and this criticism of my post I acknowledged was apt.

Honestly, I figured the answer to this was pretty obvious and can be answered with one word... Kickstarter.

Deadlands Noir's cost is already covered by the Kickstarter. That's kind of how Kickstarter works.

Another way KS works is to determine if there is interest in a project before committing to production of it. That was in fact one of our main goals. They key point there being "before committing to production."

So Deadlands Noir is only in the most beginning stages of full production; heck, you can count the number of days since it was begun on the Kickstarter page. That means only now is John working on the first draft, much less being at a final manuscript or even prepared to order art, maps, whatever, for the book.

HOE is well past that. But no, I won't say where it is because that just leads to presumptions, assumptions, and misunderstandings all around with the possibility of feeding into those internal issues that will not be discussed.

So finally, DLN will not affect HOE's release date in any way, through cost or production.

Wondering what the general stages of production are is fine and dandy. Honestly, I'm pretty sure I've answered that a few times around the forums. If you've got any search-fu, you can probably pull that up far faster than I can retype it, but let me know if you can't find it.

And for those of you who were wondering, the best way to deliver pies is at a convention. For the near future, Clint and I will be at Forge Con, ConCarolinas, and FandomFest. Catch Shane and Mike and Steve at Origins.

While I can't speak for everyone, I do consider a pie in the face assault and will press charges. Just sayin'. Wink

What about a pie to the crotch? Still assault? Or is that just plain funny?

Kudos for originality. I'd honestly never considered that, and I've been knifed, staple-gunned, and marginally set on fire by my own family! (Wait, that sounds bad when I say it like that.)

If it could produce a stain or a bruise (even it's just from scaring me enough to wet myself or spasm), I'd consider it assault. Whether any DA would agree with me is another matter entirely.

My. We've wandered pretty darn far afield, haven't we? Surprised

No, I'm pretty sure all of those situations have come up in one or another of the Hell On Earth games I've been in. Sounds like we're still basically on topic.

Got it. Color coordinate a soft pie (like cream or meringue) with your outfit and hit you in the tummy where it won't leave a mark.

I am so glad I will be at the same cons as Joel to see this!

Clint thanks. That was just what I was looking for. To be honest I don't know how Kickstarter works as I don't frequent the site. I was under the impression, through hear say only, that the Kickstarter money was only pledged and not yet in the company's pocket.

jpk I tried a couple of searches using "stages of production" and "process of production" but found very little help. Any chance I could get a good search criteria as a jumping off point?

Unless I suddenly inherit a boatload of money, I won't be traveling any time soon. So get Joel to Denver for TactiCon Twisted Evil

EDIT: And this time, you'll get to meet me cause I'll be the guy hitting Joel with a pie #1eek13

The way it works is the people pledge and set up the payment (through an Amazon PayPal type thing). When the funding date arives, if the first goal has been met, the investors are all charged and the principal gets the money. If the original goal isn't met, they are not charged.

"Could" is the operative word. Even color-coordinated pies contains stain-causing fats, and I have tender, tender flesh. And there's always the best-forgotten "scare me enough to wet myself" risk. I startle poorly (and sometimes aggressively, so the risk is yours, really).

Actually, some friends of mine and I have summed up the guide to general good behavior with "No stain, no wet spots." When you realize that bruises are, in very real ways, both a stain and a wet spot (just internally), you'd be surprised how good a guide for living that becomes.

You know, this is a lot more discussion of this topic than I ever really expected to have...

My search-fu is actually abysmal. I'll drum up a new general overview (or find one of the prior ones) and get it out here somewhere, but it might not be really quickly.

Oh my word.

Pie should never be used in such a manner, pie is good, pie is tasty and pie is sacred and the tool of a feeder. Forsooth, you should take care to formulate the perfect pie to satisfy the wants of the intended consumer of such so that they are sated, content and... malleable.

nFNN, I call you defiler of the Pie, heritic of the crust and despoiler of the filling. So say I, Sluggie, Pie Master, Grandmaster of the Pot Belly and Licker of the Gravyboat.

You may want to google gravyboat at home (not work) sometime.

I do agree about pie. Pie is proof that there is a god and she wants us to be happy. (Or is that bacon?)

It's "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." (Benjamin Franklin I believe). Related is that coffee is proof that God understands us and wants us to be productive. This may also mean that non-alcoholic beer and decaffinated coffee are tools of the Devil. Twisted Evil
