For those of you who are fans of The Multiverse podcast, Adam “Ferrel” Trzonkowski is probably becoming a household name. You may also have heard of him from his website and blog: Epic Slant. If not there, than maybe his break into the world of authordom with his freshman release The Guild Leader’s Companion. It seems as time goes on, Adam’s name is popping up in more and more places.
Whether you’re familiar with his work or not, it wouldn’t be hard to argue that he is doing a great service to the gaming community, especially for MMOs. In The Guild Leader’s Companion, Adam set out to make a how-to guide of sorts for running an Guild or Clan in your game(s) of choice a success. He has been doing so himself for over 15 years, and is definitely an authority on the subject.
Along with leading a very active guild, came the leading of raids in games such as Everquest, Everquest 2, World of Warcraft, and most recently, Rift. And this is where the inspiration comes from for his Sophomore outing: The Raider’s Companion.
For anyone who has joined the ranks of a raiding guild in any MMO, you understand just how much work goes into the process. It can take weeks of planning and strategizing –and wiping over, and over, and over again– to have a successful raid night. Well, Ferrel is hoping to ease the pains with his new book. In it, he will give the ins and outs to everything involved in the raiding process, offering helpful tips and tricks to veterans and newbies alike.
This brings us to the main point here: Adam is funding this entire undertaking through Kickstarter and he needs your help! In order to cover all costs of this book (labor, publishing, artwork, marketing), he is looking to raise $4,000 by Wednesday of this week. The project is already at $3,465 as of this publishing, meaning that there is only $535 to go until the project is fully funded.
Together, we can make Adam’s dream a reality.
