It's our great pleasure to announce the release of the PDF for Tales and Tomes from the Forbidden Library! Please check your inboxes and make sure you've received your copies from BackerKit! 

We are currently setting up with the printer and ironing out the deluxe enhancements to the book (cover, bookmark, etc...). We expect to send the final print files the first week of February. From then it will probably be 5 or 6 weeks until we see the physical books, and get them on their way to you. In the meantime, we have some stretch goal material to work on, so you should be seeing more Forbidden Library-related items throughout the coming months.

Thank you so much for your patience, and we hope you enjoy this book as much as we did creating it!

Thanks for your patience! We're so excited to be this close to delivering an amazing book!

Thanks for the prompt, Elley!

Every submission is in, and all the art is done. The book layout is set.

The last couple of items are editing (which is underway, thanks to Rich and the great Shawn Merwin), and the maps, which won't take long to do. There will be some final, very minor tweaking to the layout after edits, and then the pdf will be sent to all of you, and we'll be asking you to point out any mistakes you catch that we might have missed. And then it's off tot he printer!

Thank you so much for your patience!

Editing by Shawn Merwin! We're almost there!

We are extremely excited to announce that Shawn Merwin is in the process of editing the manuscript for Tales & Tomes from the Forbidden Library! Shawn is an acclaimed D&D writer and editor, and a contributor to the library's collection of books. He also edited the Esper Genesis Threats Database.

Initial edits have been done by the Alligator Alley Entertainment team (really, Rich), and Shawn is going to bring the project home. Once editing is complete and Rich has the maps finished, we'll send the final draft pdf to you (and try to find any errors we missed), and then it's off to the printer! 

Thank you so much for your patience and support as we make this book a reality.

We're excited to say we're into the next step for Tales & Tomes from the Forbidden Library! With the art pieces complete, editing is getting underway. Preliminary layout is already done, and once the cartography is in we'll have a book in very short order! Thank you again for your patience as this project moves toward the final product.
