I have some great news to report. The Kickstarter campaign to fund Sword of the Ronin has been successfully funded. Thank you to all the friends, colleagues, podcast listeners, and readers who have backed the project thus far. That’s the good news.
Now, the better news. There’s still two weeks to go! Stretch goals are now in place to raise this project to a higher level. I have brought artist Drew Baker onto the project now to produce additional artwork. If you’re familiar with the Legend of the Five Rings universe (a personal favorite of mine since 1996), you’ve likely seen Drew’s work. It is gorgeous. If the funding goes far enough, there might even be interior illustrations.
If you’ve haven’t gotten on board, there’s still time.
Furthermore, I’m grateful for any help spreading the word to anyone else who might like to get on board. People who love history, folklore, fantasy novels, samurai films, Akira Kurosawa, Japanese culture, or just plain ol’ adventure stories, perhaps even other people who enjoy supporting independent artists.
Thank you again for you support. This journey is just getting started and it’s going to be exciting.
