Nibiru Update #3 - The Torus

Posted by Federico Sohns (Creator)
Wow! Monday came in and we are scratching the £7000 mark!  

The week is now rolling in, and since we started spreading the word we got in touch with podcasters and industry peeps to get more exposure. We'll be sending an email over to those who downloaded our QSG from DTRPG soon, as well as sending an email to some members of the London community, whom were crucial through the early stages of playtest.  

We've also started talks with regards to distribution :) needless to say, things look promising, specially since we're receiving a good number of offers for translation. People are quite amazed at the game's premise, the setting, the art and our mechanics, which in turn makes us very proud! We now need one more big push to get us to the goal! I'd like to invite everyone to join in forces by spreading the word, sharing the campaign in social media, and just talking about it. We've built the Pilgrimage page not just to make it easier to do so, but also to reward your efforts. You can access it here: 

Now, into the more fun stuff... 

 I wanted to share a series of pictures of something we are working on. As you may well know, Nibiru has a series of life support systems built in—and most certainly, one of the most important ones is that of air circulation. This is where the Torus comes in. 

 The Torus is a massive ring; the largest locale in the whole of the Skyless World. It's a gigantic tube that encircles the Core, serving as the main artery for oxygen supply across the station. Its surface is blanketed by turbines and pumps that filter and propel the air so that it can be redistributed to each vault's life support module.

Humans (crafty bastards that they are) have been using this massive, dark tunnel to travel for a while. They do so in barges, which travel in a single direction (that of the air flow) around the Core. These are generally used for commerce between the communities of the Torus Corridor, (which is referenced and mapped in one of our physical maps!) composed of settlements and villages that are directly connected to the Torus. 

We are currently working on a series of concepts for barges, and I wanted to share them with you so that you do not leave today without some eye candy, so... here we go!

Preliminary designs:

 Final Concepts

 Preliminary Sail Study (turning sails will be brought closer to the hull, adjustments will be made to stabilizer sails)

  See you around, Vagabonds!
