Update: Some Art, Layout, SURVEYS!

Hey all,

First thing's first: We're down to less than 10% of people missing for surveys, which is great, but we need those surveys! Especially for custom level (Cougar, Snake, etc.) backers and Bison backers! I've sent out reminders for these. Please do them as soon as you can - doing fulfillment piecemeal is a sketchy process and I'd like to have this go smoother.

Second thing, I wanted to share some of the lovely art with you!

We're still super happy with the work that Cecilia Ferri did for us with the beasts, and John has made some amazing art for the humans! Speaking of John, he's working on layout right now for the main text! We want to start doing the custom backer level fulfillment as soon as the PDF is ready (so our backers can have a copy of the book to look at for building towns and to play their new Archetypes or Roles!), which we hope will be the end of this month still. 

We're working on the stretch goals - all but one stretch goal is in my hands, and we're doing edits and stuff as necessary to make sure the rules work and that the content is all clear and flavorful! The stretch goal designers have done a great job, and while we've had some delays for various life stuff for literally everyone, we're working through it! 

I've made a big point to prioritize the health and wellbeing of my creators first, and to prioritize my own, too. This sounds counter-intuitive in our capitalistic world and on a funded project, but let me tell you, asking sick people to work on projects is not the right thing to do. Everyone who has taken advantage of a rest period, extended deadline, or day off from me has come back to me with stronger work and more enthusiasm! We set the stretch goal due dates way far out to allow for this, and I think its paying off.

John, as some may know, has also been dealing with some health struggles (rare for him). He's finally found out what's going on and will have some minor outpatient surgery sometime soon, but it shouldn't impact the project - the treatment he's been given in advance of the surgery has already increased his productivity dramatically, so I think we're doing alright. 

Thank you all for your continued support! Even if it's just backing and filling out a survey, you helped make Turn happen! We'll move into printing once the PDF is in good shape, and I'll keep you updated as it goes. Again, thank you so much - we appreciate your patience, your enthusiasm, and your support more than we can measure!

Best,

Brie

      Hi everybody! You should be able to access your surveys here on the BackerKit link: https://turn.backerkit.com/

      @Sabina @Lauren @David - I've sent them out multiple times through BackerKit, so this may be the best way to do it, in case there was an error in your email or something!

      @Shervyn @Nicklas - Thank you so much! I really appreciate that! People's wellbeing is very important to me. :)

      Hello, fellow backers. The survey was done through BackerKit, so if you go to https://turn.backerkit.com/ and enter your backer email address, that should let you fill it out!

      I can’t tell you just how amazing I think your human approach to this project is. Thank you for doing this. I support projects on KS because I want to help take away the financial stress associated with creation. I don’t do it because I want to add stress to the equation. I want you and other creators to be well, give space for others to be well. Thank you for living that.

      I also can't find a link to a survey in my e-mail, not even among spam (I know, accidents happen). Can you maybe send out survey invites one more time?

      Prioritize health is 100% the right thing to do. It might be late but the work will be better for it as well as life will be less terrible.
