Other than the three backers whose names were omitted from the first printing (whose copies will be sent next week), all of the backers at the “National Icon” level (and above) should be receiving their softcover copy of Bulletproof Blues soon. When it arrives, please share your opinion on your social media venue of choice. If you have the time and inclination, try to provide some details on what you like and why, and what you do not like and why. That will help others, who may or may not share your tastes, decide whether the game might interest them. Think of it as paying the Noah Tax:
Whenever you post about a thing that you’ve purchased or are going to purchase and you think the rest of us would be interested in purchasing it, too, let us know why. Tell us what you liked about it so that we can see if it’s the sort of thing that we might like, too. I’m not calling for full-scale reviews, but rather short bits that tell us more about your experience with a thing than anything else, since that’s what really matters. I think if we all do this, we’ll all be much better-informed consumers of RPG products and that can’t do anything but help the industry as far as I can see.

The proof for the print version of Bulletproof Blues Second Edition arrived today, and it looks great! We will be sending out the print books to people who backed us at the National Icon ($45) level and above over the next couple of days. Once we have sent the book to all of our Kickstarter backers, we will make the printed book available for purchase on DriveThruRPG.
More silliness from Cafe Press: a coffee mug with the Golden Age logo of GORGON.
I was playing around today with creating custom coffee mugs through Cafe Press. From top to bottom, these are the GORGON, Kalos Comics, and Aegis logos. They’d be expensive, as coffee mugs go — $18 each, plus shipping. Is there any demand for these? I would sell them at my cost.
We have finished formatting all of the open content from Bulletproof Blues Second Edition (i.e., all of the text and artwork). It is online at RPG Library Open Game Content:
The print version of the book has cleared premedia at the printer’s, and we have ordered a proof, which should arrive late next week. Knock on wood, the proof will not have any errors and the cover art will line up correctly, and the printed books will start shipping next week.
We have released the new Sean Izaakse character art from Bulletproof Blues Second Edition on DriveThruRPG in two new character packs, and we have updated the original Character Packs featuring art from Dan Houser. Check them out!
Kickstarter backers will be sent coupons for these items over the next few days.

We have completed the print and PDF layouts for Bulletproof Second Edition! We will have to wait on the proof for the print version before we can start getting those printed and mailed out to our Kickstarter backers, but we will start sending out the links for the PDF version over the next couple of days. Thanks so much for your patience!
We have already uploaded the revised and expanded Character Sheet Helper, and you can download that right now:
