Rolling Forward

We've finally gotten things rolling on printing. The trick - HP CP 1215 color laser. Great color reproduction at a reasonable cost per page. And it handles the card stock. Of course it has been discontinued, so get it while supplies last I guess.

The cards look phenomenal, but I don't relish all the cutting ahead of me. I'm sure this is cosmic payback for the first edition of GE.

For those of you who need to know, all things related to Galactic Empire (now more formally titled Jean-Paul Lapointe's Galactic Empire), often referred to as G.E., are IP (Intellectual Property) One. This includes but may not be limited to The Portable Galactic Empire, full size Galactic Empire, Rules of Engagement and the unnamed action role playing game.

There will be at least one expansion for P.G.E. before anything else. Then we will probably introduce I.P. Two, because I'll be bored of working on GE stuff for a while.

The Limited (internally known as Convention) Edition will be a small run of about 45 copies, entirely hand made and lovingly packed into wood boxes. They will be available first at KeyCon, in Winnipeg at our table in the dealers room. After that show closes, should we have any copies left, we'll make them available for direct sale.

Ya, pretty cool.

Production Issues

As always Mr. Murphy decided to stop by this week and mess with my stuff. He's good at that. This week he decided that the last thing we needed to do was actually be able to print on the fancy card stock we want to print on. Well, for less than an arm and a leg. I've outmaneuvered him for now, so I think we're back on track for the Limited Convention Edition. I'm also hoping he'll get tied up bothering David.

In other news I hope to make pre-release pdfs available to look at through the inter web. I need to work out the details of hosting files and such. More updates to follow.

Back to Work

All right, Poodites, back to work.

Something for you all to look at: Castle Games Inc.

Hopefully that does not redirect you to a cyber squater. We are about 2 to 3 weeks available from having actual copies of actual games in hand and ready for sale. Send us an email if you're interested.

Our goal is to get a logo and a message board some time before the apocalypse. Right now I'm toying with something that looks like a rook and a king in castle position.
