With our recent cancellation of the Iron Edda Setting Expansion Project Kickstarter, I'm thinking through how to focus on Sagas, and how to package it.

What's your reaction to the idea of a version of War of Metal and Bone with the Fate rules included in the book?

That makes a lot of sense; sad to see it happen, but it sounds like you made the right decision at this time, and that's a very cool and professional way to approach it. So often I worry people push forward with kickstarters so as not to let their backers down, even if they realize they are in over their head before it ends.

I wish you the best with both projects when you get back to them.

I've got a (mostly) professional survey I'm running. If you'd take the time to fill it out, that'd be cool.

Settings, Worlds, Rules  - 
 
Hello, all.

Over at Exploding Rogue Studios, we're working to decide how to handle our next Iron Edda product. Your feedback would be hugely helpful.

We Kickstarted Iron Edda: War of Metal and Bone in January of 2014. The book was written to require Fate Core and Accelerated to play. The next product we're thinking of is called Iron Edda: Sagas, and we've got two different approaches (har) in mind for it:

1: Treat it as a setting guide, with new material for the world, some new mechanics and more info on how to use them. This would require War of Metal and Bone (as well as Core and FAE) to use.

2: Make it into a standalone game, including all of the rules needed from Core and FAE, as well as the extra setting content and mechanics.

War of Metal and Bone has been well received for small press. 293 copies for Kickstarter backers, 11 copies sold via IPR at Origins, and more copies requested by IPR for GenCon.

If it matters, we could set up Sagas to be hardcover, full-color, or softcover, full-color. It depends on the demand. I read through Fred's previous thread about Atomic Robo, and it gave me a lot to think about. 

If you have thoughts about the viability of either option I presented, or if you have other opinions, they're very welcome.

+Tracy Barnett It might not be a bad idea to link to the Fate SRD from the .pdf, if that's legally viable. I think it really depends on what your market looks like; the Fate rules are pretty easy to get a hold of, and if the people who'll be buying your book already have them on hand, it might be extraneous.

On the other hand, I know that the Hero System people found all-in-one books to be way more popular for them. I don't really know what people want off the top of my head.

But! If you want to put together a survey to send to backers, I'd be happy to help out or just do that for you; My masters' thesis is done, and I've got the time to do it now.

Iron Edda was wicked sweet, and more is definitely something I wanna see.

The Iron Edda Setting Expansion Project is live on Kickstarter! Your support will make two new Iron Edda books possible.

Iron Edda: Sagas is a comprehensive setting guide for War of Metal and Bone, and will detail the rest of the world of Iron Edda. It will also have an expanded take on the Fate rules found in War of Metal and Bone.

Iron Edda: Dragon & Sparrow is the sequel to Sveidsdottir. The story of Sigrid continues, but through the eyes of two women she left behind: Marsa and Rin. As well, backers and vote on which Warrior Clan they want to see rise to power in the novel.

We're running until Aug 1, and ending the KS at our Exploding Rogue panel at GenCon. Check it out!

The Iron Edda Setting Expansion Project: coming to Kickstarter June 30, 2015.

Sagas is an expanded setting book with new Fate rules, and detailed descriptions of Midgard and the lands around it.

Dragon & Sparrow is the sequel to Sveidsdottir, and tells the stories of both Marsa and Rin, two women left as shadows of themselves after the events of Sveidsdottir.
