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.

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?

And will some of the characters be potential NPCs?

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).

Chris Avellone should have taken some time out of his schedule about 20 years ago and become a major sperm doner, volunteered to be cloned, or had his brain mapped out and copy/pasted into an ai...because even at his most uninspired...well, you get the idea.
