Month One Update
It's been a month since I released Sapience, so this is just a quick update to keep you all appraised about the game, and the upcoming mini-supplement.
Update on the mini-supplement
The mini-supplement is complete, and is currently with my new editor, Dana. Once that comes back it'll go to layout and then will be released to backers and the general public. The bulk of the book is the promised starter adventure The Mystery at Phoenix Station, but there's also a new starship, a small section about space stations, some more discussion about the themes of Sapience, and a printable GM Screen. Accompanying the book will be new digital files with floorplans for two space stations, the new starship class, and of course the deck plans for Phoenix Station, for use with the starter adventure.
I don't have an ETA yet, as I'm unsure how long editing and layout will take, but: soon! :-)
Do Androids dream of electric dice?

You use the online roller or download the installable version through the Sapience Webpage, and/or you can join our Discord server or invite the bot to your own Discord servers.

There have been a couple more reviews in the three weeks since my last update.

So I absolutely adore this game.
It has a space opera feeling grit to it that really gives you that 70s/80s sci-fi vibe that a lot of people want in their games. There is a level of grit in the game that makes it a little more realistic in some really positive ways. I actually had the digital copy first and ended up getting a second physical because I enjoyed it so much. Sapience does an excellent job of making you feel like you are part of something bigger and that your shipmates really do have this found family feeling.
This game is an interesting read. Its clearly explained how the uplifted animals fit and compliment this 80's like sci fi rump. [...] All together, for 15 dollars it's a great buy.
The game has five 5* and one 4* ratings so far. I really appreciate your kind support of this project and I hope you love the book. It would mean a lot to me if you could review the book on Drivethrurpg, as this helps make the game visible to others. If you have 5 seconds, just click on the link below and give it a star rating; if you have 30 seconds, add a few nice words. If you haven't reviewed yet, your help would really mean a lot to me.
As always, please feel free to contact me through any of the below channels, and when/if you get a game of Sapience going, I would love to hear about it!
