I had originally planned to do a big update yesterday but I got roped in to helping someone move and 9 hours later we were done. Never trust someone if they tell you they only need you for a couple of hours to help move. And run like hell if you get there and they are still packing.
But enough about that. Here is the update I originally planned to send tonight so I am at least going to stick with that.
As part of the "early bird" bonus for this project, I have been adding special additions to people who have backed by a certain date. We've gone past one of those dates with the next just a few days away. Our third and final one comes from comments and questions I have been getting over the last couple of weeks about different sets people would like to see.
In the next day or two I will be sending out a survey in which you will be able to provide ideas and suggestions of what you would like to see in a core set. You'll also have a chance to provide me with some links to images that may help the process out.
Following that I will send out a survey with the ideas (some ideas may be very close together so in those cases I will be combining them together) which will be voted on by all backers. The top two vote getters will be made into core sets available for purchase only by people that have backed the project before July 3.
These sets do not have to be purchased by the close of the campaign. They can be purchased at a later date but will never be available to anyone but that group of backers. Yes, I'm aware that this seems like a lot of work for a very small population but I figured it would be a fun exercise and once we have finalized the sets I would leave it up to you, the backers, if this is something that should be kept exclusive or shared with everyone.
The Long update is coming next (I know what you're thinking - this was "short?") - the next one will have less content but more pictures so it will be longer in terms of real estate.
