From the $30 and up tiers:

"Access to Four episode Video Dev Blog."

Right now, in the Ranger Center, the first blog's been posted, but just the one.

It's under the rewards tab at the bottom of the page.
The biggest failure in the recent past is this assumption that the audience is not smart.Too much effort is being spent making it dummy proof..all the clues are being held right in front of their nose.The exploration and journey is the reward

Doing some passes on the Stackpole/Long novella, I and others sent in our notes not too long ago so it's going through revisions now, will go through more read-through to take out any typos and errors etc

Chris just went kinda overboard on his former-novella now-novel. I don't have an updates status on that. Or the VLogs, other than a "they're still coming" for all. I'll see about checking in.

Could we have a hint about the nature of these novella/novel? Like are they connected more to Wasteland 1 or 2, do they take place in California (like All Bad Things) or in Arizona/Nevada?

Hey guys,

Any update on this? Is this still being developed or has it been canned?

Chris talked about it today:
Oh, Chris, can i ask one question?
Did you ever complete Arcanum Let's Play? I searched Youtube, but found only 10 videos.
I sure gladly view the full playthrough!
No, the three big things on "task beasts of forever that must be slain" were (1) finish Fairfax's Codex interview (which turned into this), (2) revise and publish the WL2 novel/novellas, and (3) finish the Arcanum Let's Play (which I'd start over from scratch).

Of the three, I thought I could finish the first one easily, but we see how that turned out... and that only took 2 years (not your fault Fairfax, all me).
