Risks and challenges

The game system has been designed, though we're still hammering out some of the finer details. The game is currently being playtested and many sections of the book have already been written. Additionally, a large portion of the art has been finished.

The main risk involves remaining freelancers not turning in their assignments in a timely fashion due to personal issues and other such factors. Fortunately, we have a considerable pool of talent to draw from, so should a freelancer go AWOL, we could replace them rapidly. At the very worst, such problems will give the release a slight delay as we wait for the new freelancers to finish the assignments.

Printing issues could cause some delay on the hardcopy end of the product as well, though it's rather unlikely.
