It's got a color cover with art by Jenn Rodgers, it's 32 pages, saddle-stitched, and awesome. It's gonna be the size and shape of a comic book--Jenn Rodgers's inspiration, that. Oh, and it'll be 10 bucks.

The Ashcan Front site talks about 90% done games, or games that aren't meeting their designer's goals. I don't think that's the case, here. I'm ashcanning because I want to test the text, see what's missing, unclear, or should be expanded upon. Also the game hasn't been played by many people apart from me, and I'd like the rules to be tested in the wild a bit before I go to a full book.

Also, I'm trying to decide whether or not to do pre-orders.
