I’ve been in touch with the high level world-building backers, and I have gotten good response. We have a new rough draft of the setting, and a top-secret forum where some of the backers are really fleshing out their territories with gameable stuff.
The next playtest at my home table will be the last two weeks of April and the first two weeks of May. (That’s when my guest game master is available.) So, that gives me a more stringent time frame to get some things wrapped up to be ready for playtesting. I anticipate sometime in that time frame I’ll put out a pack for others who want to do playtesting and report their experience back to have a chance to participate. Or, just for backers in general to get a sneak peek at the state of the project.
