‘City Builder’ Platinum Edition Update #40

Michael O. Varhola

Skirmisher Publishing’s team members have been working very hard since completing our Kickstarter for a Platinum Edition of City Builder: A Guide to Designing Communities and striving both to create the new places and art unlocked by stretch goals and get the overall book ready for release. 

* Author Michael O. Varhola has now completed eight of the new places he is writing for the book, the Amphitheater, Cartography Workshop, Farm, Hermitage, Observatory, Pilgrimage Trail, Trade Fair, and Watering Point; game developer Clint Staples has finished five, the Animal Training Ground, Caravanserai, Laundry, Mortuary, and Tournament Ground; and writer Jim Clunie has completed the Mint. These places are ready to be incorporated into the layouts for the Platinum Edition of City Builder and 14 of the 15 new places for the book are now done and the last one is currently in development. 

* Our editors are also currently proofing our next two incremental releases, one of the Platinum Edition of the book as it stands now, with its original 70 places, and the other “Volume 8: Alchemy Workshops, Libraries & Other Scholarly Places,” which will include the Observatory, one of the 15 new places we unlocked as stretch goals. We will be making both of those available to backers very soon. 

That’s it for now! We sincerely hope you are pleased with the progress we have been making on this project and the fulfillment plan we have designed to steadily move rewards into the hands of its backers. We would also welcome positive feedback on how you have been enjoying or using the material we have been striving to steadily make available to you.
