User Submitted Designs

It has been one month since the conclusion of our Kickstarter, and let me tell you: we are just as excited as the day we started, if not moreso. We're hustlin' and working hard on our end, but we wanted to make sure we continued to update you guys about what we're up to. We'll be trying to put out updates at least once a month, letting you know any and all exciting news and developments. For today, I'd like to take a minute to talk about a pledge tier reward that some of our most generous backers will be receiving: the opportunity to submit their own designs to our character builder.

There are so many parts of this project that are exciting for us. One of the things we are most thrilled about is that something we are building is going to be showing up on tabletops all across the world. It is like we've been invited to sit in on thousands of people's games, campaigns, and skirmishes. That is an amazing privilege, and we can't thank our backers enough for giving us that opportunity. Letting some of our backers share in that experience by submitting designs for their own part, weapons, armor, and poses seemed like a great way to say thank you.

We're still in the process of collecting these designs and descriptions, and we know several folks are hard at work on their submissions now. These pledge tiers include the Baron tier which lets the backer submit a custom pose, the Arch-duke tier which lets them submit a custom weapon or item, and the Emperor tier which lets them design an entire custom armor set from head to toe. We're looking forward to sharing these designs with backers, and then eventually with the world when we add them to our final character builder. We know user-submitted parts is something a lot of folks asked about during our campaigns, and we're thrilled that Kickstarter let us give that opportunity to select backers at launch.
