Thanks again for your incredible support. We're currently less than 15% away from being full funded. That's phenomenal!
I've got two things I'd like to share with you all today. The first is this... our current working Table of Contents! I thought it'd be a good way to provide a broad overview of the scope of our game and mechanics, and to give some idea of all the lore and world data we'll be digging into. We'll start walking you through some of these specific sections in more detail next week, starting with the Character Creation. So be sure to stay tuned for that!
Believe it or not, everything you see on that Table of Contents is is already written -- and in the case of the game components, playtested. (We've been pretty busy over the last year and a half!) But there is still work to do -- editing, illustrating and laying it all out in InDesign. It's looking like, without additions, it will work out to being around 250 to 300 pages in book form... a hefty piece of work!
The second thing I wanted to share today are our first stretch goals. So many of you have asked about these, I figured it was time to lift the veil!
At 20k, all our backers will get a pair of free desktop wallpapers. We'll also add squids to the game -- one of the most frequently seen but never explored Underground races in the comic. A new section of Chapter 1 will detail the twisted history of the Calamari Dynasty -- an original Committee member organization that was replaced by Squilt's Salmon Corporation and revived as a rival faction. You'll also be able to play as a member of either group.
And at 25k, we'll add shape-shifters to the game! A new section will be added to Chapter 1 exploring the history of their faction, and their species will become playable. This would be a big addition that requires the introduction of a new disguise mechanic, as well as new species- and faction-specific jobs... but after discussing it amongst ourselves, we have a pretty good idea of how we'd like to do it, and would love to be given the chance!
All right! That's a wrap for this week. Talk to you again soon, team!
