Default Combate Épico em Masmorras - Epic Dungeon Grappling comes to Brazil

Combate Épico em Masmorras

The experiment to translate FDG (and if successful, the rest of my Dungeon Fantasy RPG material) into Brazilian Portuguese is starting to move into launch position.

The project has been accepted by Kickstarter, and translation of the KS material into Brazilian is underway.

Expected launch date is Friday July 1, some time in the evening. It will run for 18 days. Buy-in is only $3.

Epic dungeon grappling makes it sound like there'll be a cameo from the Gracies ... I'm assuming not though...

That would be pretty cool, 'tis true.

One of the interesting aspects of this project is that the -ing gerund is not entirely a thing in Brazilian Portuguese, so the core word "grappling" becomes rough. One might think agarrar (grapple or grab) would just get the -ing ending -ando (which is similar to Spanish), but apparently while Google or DeepL will say "yah, sure, you betcha" that doesn't sound right.

In any case, this project has been an interesting exercise in "no, don't use that phrase, use this one" with my translator. Especially since seemingly every second word has eyebrow-raising innuendo implications in Brazil.

We shall see! I'm both excited and nervous about this one. I really want to reach that community - they're vibrant and starved for official or semi-official material. But it's also a hard place to do business for many reasons, so it may not pan out. It also might fund (the $500 goal really isn't much, but it IS something like 250 backers required), but not do nearly well enough to say "do this again."

The campaign went live last night!

We are 40% funded, but as I noted in the campaign description the key metric is really (Brazilian) backer count, as life for everyone gets better with scale.

Runs through July 18…and if you can share the link to any RPG communities with strong Brazilian presence, it’s important.

Excellent progress on production of Combate Epico em Masmorras this last weekend. Am in a good place to guarantee that files will be sent out as soon as Kickstarter moves funding into my account.

We still have two full weeks to go, and we're about 2/3 funded. This bodes well for the backers currently on the project to get the book rapidly.

Will admit that the response isn't what I'd hoped, but there's still yet time.

In terms of communication, I'm only really aware of the Facebook group; that's a flaw on my marketing knowledge I'm hoping that some of my Brazilian local supporters can fix.

In terms of manufacturing, this project is PDF only, and the complexities of printing, shipping, and distribution in Brazil are large enough that distribution will need to remain electronic for the time being.

In terms of crowdfunding, I'm using Kickstarter and could try Backerkit (which accepts PayPal). I CANNOT use Catarse. That requires the person who is legally responsible for the project to (a) have a Brazilian ID number, and (b) a legal residence and address in Brazil. I don't qualify on either count. I looked into it, though.

I hope that covers the basics!

Today's link to the Daily Illuminator is directed right at my Brazilian friends who might have doubts that the funding campaign is producing official material.

Steve Jackson himself wrote this note; it was translated to Portuguese by the same gentleman doing the translation for **Combate Épico em Masmorras.**

Durante o fantástico e acolhedor espetáculo com Vicinius Watzl e Shelly Poison no RPG Next, cruzamos o objetivo de financiamento!

Assim, durante os próximos dez dias, tudo se resume a divulgar mais a palavra. O livro está completo, exceto por algumas referências de páginas do Conjunto Básico que precisam ser trocadas da paginação inglesa para a brasileira.

Mais uma vez: obrigado por nos levar tão longe!

A great video show, not just in Portuguese: https://youtu.be/OBoDrVIdBfs
