A Victory for Ijad, Solar Union, and the Free Colonies!
Thank you backers!
I've got a lot of work ahead of me. Your enthusiasm has thrown me for a loop — instead of writing, drawing, and designing, I've been dealing with printers, Bricklinkers, fulfillers, and manufacturers. But now everything is worked out.
Still, I've got a draft of the rules from Vincent that needs formatting badly before even I can understand it, I've got illustrators to give feedback, I've got text to finish.
As these things come to completion, I'll send things along to you. I want you to be able to start playing as soon as possible, so I'll get you rules just as soon as I can. They'll be followed by setting material, illustrations, building instructions (still haven't done the Hi-Leg!), and other little pieces.
When they're all synthesized into a single piece, I'll send you the PDF of the complete text. I'm concluding that it might be best if you guys come back to me with feedback before I go to press, so we'll have some back-and-forth over the next few months.
Thank you for doing this. Thank you for being enthusiastic for the things we make and being willing to support us. I can't wait to see what you make.
