Another update: new batch of parts added. Also: GenCon 2015!

Hello again!

We're happy to report that we've released another update to our character builder. Feel free to stop by to take a look. This release features a batch of new parts, and includes handful of frequently requested part additions pulled from facebook comments, Kickstarter comments, tweets, and emails we've received. So, as always, feel free to reach out on our Facebook page or on Twitter with your thoughts and part requests. We're knee deep in development of some of the last big features we unlocked during out Kickstarter campaign, but we always love to hear from more voices so we can prioritize other additions whenever we get a spare moment.

Here is a list of this month's additions:-Two new textured base options: bamboo and textured metal flooring, each available in square, circle, or hex shapes 
-Two new chest pieces: a Swashbuckler's Coat, and a trench coat with a suit on underneath
-Four new headwear items: a witch's hat, a witch hunter's hat, a top hat with goggles, and goggles worn on the forehead
-A skull mask
-A katana worn sheathed on the back
-Studded leather leg wear
-New elf-like ears which stick out to the sides rather than up and back
-And ten new handheld items, including: a kite shield, khopesh, double axe, damaged buckler riddled with arrows, scepter, glaive, open book, round alchemist's flask, morningstar, and katar

In other news, we're happy to report that we had a very thrilling GenCon 2015, where we had the wonderful opportunity to meet tons of fans and show off our new metal material options to tens of thousands of tabletop gaming fans. Thanks to all who made it out to our booth to say hello!
