Howdy y'all, its time for another update! I hope the past week has been a good one. Colin and I have been hard at work getting the play-test packet ready. Everything is moving along as scheduled, so we will have you playing soon. The next update we'll give you a solid date for delivery.
For those of you interested in play-testing that haven't yet signed up, head on over to the website and Become a Play-tester! We sure would be glad to have you.
What have we been working on since the last update? We've been developing a weather system for you to test out in your games. Our intent is to offer a way to generate random, yet as close to realistic conditions as we can. This will include effects which will alter cover, impact survival in the wilderness, effect movement, etc... That being said we also want to ensure that none of this becomes too cumbersome, so we'll be eager to hear how you feel about what we've come up with.
We are also fleshing out an item list, along with properties, prices and rarities for you to use within your game. We want to make sure that your general stores are fully stocked when your players come looking for supplies to take on their adventures.
Colin is working on a map system that we'll be revealing more about in future updates. We will eventually provide you with a few states in which to set your adventures, along with various information about those locations like flora, fauna, famous law or outlaws in the area, etc.. This will also include information about how to use our weather system to more accurately replicate the weather of the area you are currently traveling in.

Please head on over and let's start the discussion! Any questions you may have we will be happy to answer for you. We want to keep an open dialogue with as many of you as possible through this whole process. We want to deliver a game that you love as much as we do.
Remember if you have any questions feel free to contact us.
I would like to leave you with a few examples of the art work we have coming. These are some rough colors from an artist we've been working with, Ksenia Kozhevnikova. She has more than exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to share the finished pieces with you.
