As we head into the last week of the KS I thought I would post an update and let everyone know what is going on, where I am with things, what is coming up, etc..
I have been completely surprised at having reached our 5k goal and from what I have been hearing and with the way some projects surge in the last days, we may be unlocking some more of the stretch goals. I set these goals up and limited them in scope and there number as I wanted to be able to complete the project in the time promised. I also didn't want to get bogged down in a ridiculous amount of stretch goals and have to rush and cut corners. With that said, I have been steadily working on the goals already reached...
All of the additional artwork has been completed. I had intended to add only a few new drawings to Tales of Awesome but as I got in and started playing with things, I got all inspired. In all I have added around 8 new pieces of artwork to the Tales of Awesome and some new work to Creatures Vol. I as well.
Dragons are completely finished, tested, proofed, and ready to roll. They should prove worthy adversaries for most any party.
I had intended on adding 10 new Heroes and Villains, which would have doubled what I already had. As of now there are 24 Heroes and Villains total. Each has his/her own image and description. Most of these characters are historical figures and tie directly into the FAL history and story.
I have also gone through Tales of Awesome and added descriptions for most of the important places on the Map of FAL. I had not intended to do this previously but I felt like it was necessary. Now there are a ton of short descriptions for locals. Oh, and I also added 8 new pieces of art to go along with the descriptions (these are a separate art count from the Xtra Sketches and Artwork in the 2k stretch).
So next up is Religions and Cults. There will be around ten entries in this area and they will describe various humanoid religions and cults. For example, the Agnuns and their Temple of Marsheeria, where the ancient Robo Bear is housed - the cult that has grown up around their electronic soothsayer... Anyway.
I would love to see the final three stretch goals unlocked as I am feeling good about where the project is and what it is growing into.
So, with about a week left, I want to thank everyone again. You have all made this thing come to life and it is has excited me greatly. Let's give one last push. Tell your friends. Post on forums and Facebook and Twitter and let's unlock these last goals.
