|Ild, the dark prodigy|
Art from: Whispers of Persephone
Artist: Christian Martinez
I'm pleased to report that the second round of play tests have begun, with one of the game masters reporting that the entire party was entirely freaked out by one of the NPC's included within the book, Ild the Dark Prodigy (see creepy picture of Ild above). Certainly there is a hope that people will find a way to bring a bit of horror to their games with the material I've included in this book. Providing ample opportunity to players and game masters alike to flex their role playing muscles as they play characters so at odds with the heroic concept. Some times it is fun to be the bad guy!

Presently, Whispers of Persephone is in its final play test phase. I want to say "Thank You" to Daniel, one of the play testing game masters, who printed these two pages from Whispers of Persephone and discovered that the book is going to look pretty neat. Speaking of Daniel, he was kind enough to provide a little bit of information about his players' response to their encounters with a particular NPC:
I've finished formatting the digital version of Whispers and am now formatting the print copy file. I'm hoping to have that complete tonight, and to be ordering proof copies by the end of the week.
My goal is to have print copies in hand by the launch of the KickStarter campaign.

Whispers of Persephone is coming to KickStarter in order to obtain funding for art. I'm working to raise $3500 to fund more interior art. Reaching the funding goal will allow me to include more illustrations from Christian Martinez, to make this book look its absolute best.
The KickStarter will be launching on September 22nd, 2018 and I will be streaming live on launch day. That live stream event is planned and will incorporate a number of guests, who will be joining me to talk about Whispers of Persephone and to introduce themselves to the KickStarter community. We're going to make a show of it, to provide some entertainment, and bring some real value to the launch day activities. I'll be announcing the line up once we confirm their time slots!
