[19:08] <~Dan> Thanks, ToddDowning! The floor is open to questions!
[19:09] <~Dan> So what is the premise of Airship Daedalus?
[19:10] <+ToddDowning> At its core, it’s a retro pulp adventure. The trappings are a slightly alternate timeline to our own, 1920-1940, magic and horror factoring in with the two-fisted adventure.
[20:03] <+jcombos> Hi everyone. I’m Jeff Combos, the creator of Hollow Earth Expedition, a pulp adventure role-playing game about feeding Nazis to dinosaurs.
[20:04] <+jcombos> It started as a single book, released 10 years ago now(!), but since then we’ve grown the line to include several different flavors of pulp, including the sword and planet genre.
[20:05] <+jcombos> We released a sourcebook about it called Revelations of Mars, and now we’re following it up with a Kickstarter for a book of Martian adventures called Perils of Mars.
[20:06] <+jcombos> Beyond the RPG industry, I’ve also done a lot of crowdfunding design work, and worked in the video game industry too, so I’m happy to answer questions about any and all of that stuff.
[20:07] <+jcombos> So fire away!
