I just wanted to let you all know that the final proof came in and looks really good. This means that Deadball will be for sale on DTRPG this week. I've asked them to clear it, which takes between 1-5 business days, but which has only taken 24 hours in the past. Update to come!

If you purchased the PDF, what you've got is a digital copy of the print product. It's exactly the same in every way, so you don't need to worry about missing out on anything except the feel of the book in your hand. I'm going to create a discount code to let people who bought the PDF buy the print book at a lower rate, in case they want both.

I will order the print edition as well. I don't care about the code reduction. I prefer to give you all the required money so you will develop more and more this game!! whistle

Yes! About the negative traits generator. The short answer is that I've tinkered with it, and have never found a version of it that I really love, which is why I've never shared one. Two ideas for a way it could work (which I'm sharing publicly in case others have ideas):

--One huge table (d100, maybe) that includes negative traits, bonus traits, and combinations thereof, as well as a lot of space (about 80%, for my money) for players with no traits at all.
--One table that you roll on to tell you how many traits a character has, and a second table that you roll on to determine what they are, if he has any.

If anybody wants to knock together a version of one of those, I'd love to see it! As I said, I haven't ever been able to put a version together that was simple enough while still being useful.

That would be very interesting!
