I think I'll pass on this one but instead I just donated to the Border Patrol Foundation (BFP) which supports the families of fallen officers. I appreciate you prompting me to do so.

I nearly passed this by until I saw the review and comments from xenophobes throwing hissy fits over your pledge to donate to the ACLU and RAICES. Thank you for this.

As for the guy parroting the dumb catchphrase, "Get woke go broke," I remember a lot of MRA types saying that very thing about the Captain Marvel movie. Look how that turned out.

I bought your book BECAUSE of the charity donation statement in your description. That being said, I've been halfheartedly working on a setting in need of a system and yours looks super-interesting so I'm looking forward to diving into it.

I've started working on a setting initially using D&D assumptions to help me work through some of the initial worldbuilding.

Thinking about using Forthright for the next round of development.

The coupling to D&D is very loose, so won't be difficult to eliminate altogether.

What's the latest on the Forthright Toolkit for those of us not following on Facebook?

Thanks for asking! Right now the Toolkit is a whopping 33,000 words and is in the process of final tweaking. I'm anticipating the text will be finished in Q4 and we're aiming for Q1 2020 for publication. We may go Digital first and POD later in order to make that timing.

Much of the summer was spend "proofing" our Boosts to make sure they were properly balanced (there are currently over 400 Boosts listed in the Toolkit). We've also merged all the Splatbooks we were expecting to write (Psionics, Magic, Vehicles, Horror) into the Toolkit to make sure it's been worth the wait.

Speaking as a proud papa, the Toolkit is practically FORTHRIGHT 2nd Edition. It's going to be super-sweet and I can't wait to publish it!

Nice, especially pleased to hear about Psionics, Magic and Vehicles in the mix for this since I'm working on a science-fantasy setting.

Moar powerz is always gud, too! ;)

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
