Latest Updates from Our Project:
An overdue, but thorough, progress report

It has been a long time since our last update, but be assured, it is because we are hard at work. We know many of you are eagerly waiting for playtest material and to finally see some content. We are working on putting together the first Playtest Package, as well as the places for you to submit your comments, feedback and questions. There will be a form and a discord server where all comments and suggestions will be welcome. But most of you already knew that. So we're giving you a little something today, the full index of Sinclair's Almanac, with progress report for each design started this far.
Now this content is still susceptible to change (names being a likely example), but most of these designs have already been pitched, approved, and sent to the first edit pass.
Meet our Nemeses

We are finally able to reveal our 5 Nemeses, as requested by many.
Liliana Bandit Warlord and her Companion Baastri
On the warpath against the nobility that she decries as corrupt and greedy, Liliana and her mercenary army are a grave threat to the established gentry. Once, she was dismissed as a mere bandit threat, something for local authorities to concern themselves with. Now, her empire greedily devours countries and counties, tearing down the wealth and power of landed lords and uplifting the common folk. Will you join with Liliana—whether in service to republican idealism or simply to line your own pockets—and help her overthrow the nobility? Or will you defy her illegitimate rule, halt her conquests in the name of the true rulers, and bring her to lordly justice?
Hoonordel, the Mad Geneticist
The world has ever been a dangerous place, haunted by unsettling monsters. But some things are beyond mortal or even immortal ken, foul things that have no place in nature's design. And yet, these aberrations now multiply throughout the region, spreading, infecting, consuming. They must come from somewhere beyond the world itself. Unless... they were made, somehow. But who would commit such atrocities, create such monsters? Who could?
Dore'ni, The Eternal Night
For as long as mortals have preyed upon each other, there have been vampires. In these enlightened times, we expect organised vampire societies; lords of the night in cocktail attire, sipping delicately at wasted veins, or packs of blood-sucking beasts hunting the dark alleys like the dark woods of earlier eras. But there was a time when vampires were yet unknown, a tale told in terror and whispered in woe. A predator of the night, utterly lethal and cruelly thirsting. In these enlightened times, though, who truly believes in such horrors?
Sebastian Polik, Thief of Magic
The act of ownership, the mere concept, casts the shadow called theft. The hard-earned money of one is the easy-lifted coin of another. Sebastian Polik... is not that type of thief. There is nothing easy about his work, and his heists are boundless in their complexity, their ambition, and their flair. There is no lock he cannot pick, no safe he cannot crack, no guardian menacing enough or fortress impregnable enough to deter him from his latest obsession. Will you try to capture he who has never been captured... or outfox the slyest fox that ever foxed, and claim his prize for your own?
Mikael, the Aeon of Providence
The gods' ultimate creation... or their greatest mistake? Among those scholars who have cause to suspect its existence, some would say the former, many the latter; and no small number would say it is both. But none would dare to deny its terrifying power. This weapon of destruction, forgotten even by the gods whose wrath it was wrought to embody, bides its time in its sealed vault. Waiting to be set loose upon the fallen world. Waiting to fulfill its Apollyonic purpose.
Thank You For Your Patience!

Nonat here. Apologies for not posting any updates for the past two months. The long-and-short of it is that there hasn't been much exciting to update on. Our team is fully staffed and hard at work conceptualizing and writing content for both the Codex and Almanac. We've already made leaps and bounds on some of the chapters of the books, but nothing has reached "Playtest" phase quite yet.
We have multiple NPCs, Archetypes, and more currently in the "Peer Review" phase. Once that's done, it'll be released to Playtest. Starting in September, we'll be releasing a Playtest Package each month. This might be archetypes, NPCs, Variant Rules, or even classes. These Playtests will be vital in the perfection of our content, and we can't wait for you to get your hands on it!
Otherwise, everything is currently moving according to schedule. Release dates have not changed so we're still looking at somewhere in the realm of January-February. The release date will get more accurate as we get more done. Thank you all so much for your support and patience! Expect more updates coming soon, especially as we begin finishing some of our designs and moving them into the Playtest Phase!
Until Next Time, No Nat 1's!
Generic Updates #2

We have spent the last few weeks getting everything ready and making sure we can welcome our amazing writers and artists into a smooth working environment. Here are the latest news from the Library:
The Work Begins !!
Monday the 20th is the day we officially enter production mode. Administrative duties are taken care of, the work environment is ready, our dream team has been recruited, and it's time to get creating.
We have hit the two week post campaign mark and the Backerkit survey is ready to be sent. In a few days, you can expect to receive an email with the link as soon as it is live, and you will be able to select all of your options regarding game system and VTT system.
5e Conversion Director
We are proud to announce our 5e Conversion will be lead by David N. Ross. David has had extensive experience converting content from one system to another, including but not limited to the Abomination Vault Adventure Path (5e) for Paizo and the Sandy Petersen Cthulhu Mythos book.
Our other latest addition to the team is Isabelle Thorne as chief editor. Isy has a stellar track record both as an editor and as a game designer, and will undoubtedly help bring the Library's content to the next level, unlock the true potential of our junior writers and provide solid support to our veteran designers.

The 130k Ancestry Revealed - The Bovians
4 months ago
– Sun, Jun 05, 2022 at 05:27:07 AM
Right on the cusp of the 48 hour mark, the campaign hit the 130k stretch goals, unlocking our new ancestry : the Bovians.
The Bovians are significant to us because they represent the design philosophy of Sinclair's Library. Rather than simply make a Minotaur Ancestry, taking existing X and inserting it into Y, we brainstormed to push the idea further. Add more to it, put a spin on it, go beyond the easy ways of applying mechanics to existing concepts.
We hope you will appreciate the Bovians as much as we enjoy making it, and we are eager to share with you their complex history.
