It's done! The Pathfinder, 5E, and P2E versions are published, as is the Digital Map Pack.
You should receive a notification from DriveThruRPG shortly with your free copies of the adventure in all three rules editions, plus the 4K/VTT map pack.
If you're entitled to a copy and have not yet received it, please message me, email me at infiniumGameStudios [at] gmail.com, or comment below, and I'll investigate ASAP.
I'll be submitting the content files soon, but with the holidays and COVID, DTRPG's printing services are backed up. I'd anticipate receiving the hardcopy proof, approving, and publishing (as well as fulfilling your long-awaited hardcopy discount codes) in January 2021.
Thanks for your patience in getting to this point. Onward!

Hi folks! Hope you're enjoying whatever combination of winter holidays apply to you.
Just a quick note that we are ON TARGET for completing and delivering MBF this week.
I've finished the Pathfinder edition (158 pages), and am polishing and publishing soon.
5E edition is in process and should be finished sometime this week.
I'll post another update when everything is completed, published, and fulfilled.
State of the Realm: Q4 2020

Hiya! Hope you're enjoying the burgeoning winter (or whatever season it happens to be where you are).
Please find the Q4 2020 Infinium Game Studio State of the Realm update here.
As I established in the Q2 2020 Realm update earlier in the year, I have honest, updated targets for each and every product in the pipeline. That policy will continue.
We've long established that my ability to estimate is not ideal, but I do enjoy sharing with you my best guess and trying to be as transparent as possible about what's going on, when, and what I'm doing about it.
2020 certainly has been an enormous year. Aquilae: Bestiary of the Realm for 5E, for Pathfinder Second Edition, for OSR, and for DCC have all been completed and published. And I even expanded all editions of the Bestiary by an additional 60 monsters, bringing the total to 1,660 monsters, over 33,000 complete statblocks spread over more than 20,000 pages of published content.
As part of that, I established my first-ever formal agreement with another third-party publisher, and got approval to publish the Bestiary for DCC using the Dungeon Crawl Classics logo and official support.
The FlexAI Guidebook was completed and published. The FTEG Solo Adventuring Quickstart, and its accompanying Quickstart Bestiaries for PFRPG, 5E, and P2E, were published.
And more recently, just last week, the Content Conversion Guide was completed and published, along with its companion Excel Conversion Mapping Inventory tool.
All in all, four Silver bestsellers and two Copper bestsellers in the IGS library at this point on DriveThruRPG, including #1 Hottest Small Press, #1 Most Popular Under $5, and #6 Bestselling Overall honors (all for the Content Conversion Guide).
Updated Project Targets
In keeping with the new approach established earlier this year, the State of the Realm update features honest, best-guess assessments of where outstanding work will be completed and fulfilled. I want to remain as transparent as possible, even if that frustrates some people, because as a backer of over 500 indie RPG projects myself, I'd rather have a best-guess that changes, than a vague "I'm working on it" promise.
I want to stress, and thank you for, the overwhelming amount of optimistic, understanding, sympathetic, and generally positive feedback I've received. Most of you seem to be super thrilled; many of you are eager to hear more, and I do respect that some of you are frustrated.
I have always delivered, and I will continue to deliver, as rapidly, and as completely, as I am capable of. I thank you for your patience, now in this bizarre 2020 situation more than ever, and for the nearly 10,000 of you who have received at least one IGS product already, I'm always eager to hear your feedback!
Thank you as always for your patience, support, and constructive feedback. 2020 has been a heck of a year for us all, and yet, IGS has continued to produce a TON of products spanning thousands and thousands of pages and over a dozen books.
We're looking forward to much, much more yet in what has already been a record-breaking year of productivity for our teeny-tiny indie geekfest company. None of this would be remotely possible without you, your support, and your own passion.
So: Thank you!
