Can’t believe today is exactly 2 weeks from the day we hit the web with this grand idea! With 300 pages written, we are figuring we are looking at upwards of 500 pages if our Kickstarter is successful. Two weeks ago we were a small team of 2, 14 days later we are proud to say we are working with six artists who’ve helped with graphics design, weapon design, character design, and gameworld scenery. As the resident copy editor (a consultant with Ignite, LLC) I’ve now edited story pages, Kickstarter pages, WordPress pages, and created contracts for various work. Ignite, LLC has been excited to get the opportunity to try something different, entering the world of role-playing is both challenging and fun! I’ve editing journal articles, books, brochures, handouts, fliers and other marketing materials, staff meeting minutes, blogs, websites, short stories, poems, and loads of college papers but never a role-playing game. Getting a break from the graduate level research papers has been a welcomed distraction for me!
The mastermind behind all of this has been busy recording and editing the Kickstarter video. Our hope is that after one (okay maybe two) more rounds of edits to the Kickstarter content we’ll be ready to submit the project for review. We can’t wait to reveal this project in more detail and get your feedback, stay tuned!

Well we have been busy. We are getting constant updates and story blurbs for the various forwards in the book.
An excellent logo and graphics artist Chris J. Randolph from Spectre-7 Graphics has completed the logo art, Kickstarter breaks, and other various bits of work for us. It has been a true pleasure to work with him. The feedback on the logo and other work he has done has been nothing short of amazing.
We are looking at moving forward with the Kickstarter and should even more updates later this week. We are trying to make sure we show that we have accountability and a full fledged project here before moving forward so that those who join the Kickstarter know that they are getting into something that will return a polished product to them.
Val Commons is a very talented sketch and concept artist who will be providing scenery art. http://storytellingshrine.blogspot.com/
Boco is an amazing artist from Belgium. http://www.artofboco.com/
Recently sent out the rules to be play-tested again, hammered on, beat up, and critiqued. Reviews ranged from perfect, to phenomenal. So excited! Really never expected that kind of feedback.
Also sent the first drafts to the resident copy editor, who slammed through the Kickstarter and basically rewrote it. Now I changed it around on her again. Amazing that her feedback was so positive!
We are fleshing out material to get our Kickstarter up and running! Thanks to those who gave us the inspiration to begin this. It is nice to know that people out there have the confidence in the game and its system to suggest we start a Kickstarter.
