Greetings Federation Alliance Loyalists. We know you are eager to start the Far Away exploration program. To help prepare you, we have put together this Universal Protocol Designed to Address Timing Expectations (UPDATE).
The Print-and-Play draft has been refreshed. Our team spent the month revising core systems to help guide explorers. We wanted to streamline rules and reinforce mechanics through design. This required retooling our cards. We stripped down the building system to a more understandable and engaging core. We also improved the creature behavior and guidance.
The Print-and-Play has the Tutorial and Discovery missions. We encourage you to try them out and provide feedback. We will be releasing new demo missions out of band from these UPDATES, but will be sure to alert everyone through the usual channels.
Our next goal is to transform the rules from a Word document into an actual, illustrated booklet. We can do this now that the piece design has settled. Expect that next UPDATE. A pictorial learning manual will facilitate blind playtesting, which will solidify the core text and experience. That is a good thing.
Speaking of good things, if you backed at a level giving you custom content and discussed that content with us, that is a good thing. If you have not yet responded to our emails, that is a not-good thing we need to rectify.
That is all for this UPDATE. Study the new materials so when we launch you into to space, you remain alive and competent.
