Shadows Over Sol: Week Three
on Oct. 22, 2015, 1:31 p.m.
We've hit the point where three weeks have passed since Shadows Over Sol's funding period ended. Work on the game continues to go well. Thus far we've been kept busy with art, editing and writing commissions, as well helping our higher-tier backers create their characters.

The Week’s Progress
Here is what we’ve accomplished in the past week:
- We created and sent out the October monthly update for the Kickstarter.
- We sent out the backer credit survey. If you would like your name to appear in the credits differently than it appears on your Kickstarter account, please fill out this survey letting us know how you would like your name to appear.
- Shiny New Toys moved from editing into art direction. Fatal Frontier will soon do the same.
- Several chapters of the core book have gone through initial layout.
- We've received back a number of art pieces, and have sent out more commissions.
- We took care of some internal accounting matters related to the Kickstarter.
- Two of our higher tier backers have completed their characters, and we're currently with a backer on the third character. We're still waiting to hear back from the rest of the Character/Executive backers. If you are one of these backers, please contact us ASAP. The deadline for commissioning your character art is fast approaching.
In the next week we will almost certainly move Fatal Frontier into art direction. If we're lucky, we may also be able move the core book from art direction and into layout. Finally, we hope to get at least all the basic character concepts finalized for all of our Character/Executive backers.
