Attention Legionaries, 

I hope you're all doing great. 

In terms of news, it's pretty straight forward as things are moving along :)

Production Status

We encountered some challenges during the test prints. However we managed to clear this within a week or so. 

As you can see, their printer had problems applying the correct shadows on the elements.

The illustrator credits and the card number wasn't represented on the cards.

I believe we've ironed out these problems, and I'm currently just waiting for Whatz Games to come back from their Chinese New Year's vacation, so the production can continue. 

The challenges mentioned in last update, plus these errors, might have costed us 1-2 weeks, and with the Chinese New Year extending the wait a bit, we'll end up on a 3-4 weeks delay. 

I'm confident fulfillment can be initiated in March, as no other issue have come up, and everything else looks promising :)

Barbarian Uprising

I encountered a minor problem with some of the local printed prototypes, as the cards had some rough corners. I had the worst of them reprinted by the printer, who was very helpful and did it all for free.

Not all the cards made the cut ;) These were of course all replaced by the printer.

I've received the final addresses from our Prototype Backers, so the last patch of 6-7 Barbarian Uprising Prototypes should be shipped out within next week :) 

The new prototypes look neat :)

This Month

My to-do for this month (February) looks like this:

  • Ship the final batch of Barbarian Uprising Prototypes.
  • Follow up on mass production/fulfillment. 
  • Update the PnP files once the game is mass produced. 

Next update will be in beginning/middle of March.

PS: Remember that I'm still running competitions on Facebook for more prototypes :)
