We're coming up on the first week since the funding period for the Shadows Over Sol Kickstarter ended, and in this week we've been hard at work putting all the pieces in place for a smooth and timely production process. We've also taken stock of our expenses and done our initial estimates.
Below you will see a graph that breaks down our estimated expenses. Note that these are subject to change as reality rears its ugly head, but thankfully we've planned a degree of padding for just such a case.
The different sections of the graph can be read like a clock, starting at the top and proceeding clockwise around the pie chart. For example, you can see that the art and layout budget for the core book consumes roughly a quarter of our costs. The various unlocked supplements consume roughly another third. Kickstarter itself (as always) takes a slice of the pie. Our "Oh Crap! Fund" is a pool of money that we've earmarked for any unforseen expenses that crop up during the production process. There are always a few of these, and we've found that it's best to plan for this ahead of time.
That's it for now! Expect our weekly summary of Shadows Over Sol progress to be posted in the TabBlog tomorrow!
