Wow! What a long strange trip it’s been.
Last week saw the finalisation of the Pre-Release edition of the first book of First Law: Override, this was then sent off to our printer company who set about straight away turning our product from refined PDF into paper format.
Well yesterday this beauty arrived at my home so I took a few home pictures of it to get the ball rolling:
First and foremost is the books themselves. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect. I knew that the paper was going to be 100gsm with a silk finish and at 93 sides, that would give us roughly 47 pages of paper. I was actually surprised by it’s thickness, and already was becoming enthralled with the level of detail captured in the printing process.
Moving swiftly on, I opened the pages to this, the first page of First Law: Override complete with contact info and credits. Once again, the quality of the printing was better than I could have ever imagined.
And the pages of lore begin complete with pictures and details of time lines, locations, races. Everything needed in a few pages to understand the history of the game.
So also figured it was right to showcase some of the art we licenced out, and here we have one of the more contrast filled pieces. Once again as you can see, the printing has been perfect, where the art here just pops right out of the page!
For those unfamiliar, we are due to be making appearances at DaffCon on the 8th and 9th of April, after which I will be looking to put this copy in it’s complete form on something like Wargame Vault for ease of download. The Pre-Release edition will remain free to download, but if we are able to wrangle up interest in crowd funding, then we will be looking to produce an actual released copy which you’ll be able to obtain in a limited print run.
Hope you like this little preview at the book and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at DaffCon.
