This week's Project Eternity Kickstarter update
finally addresses the issue of what's going on with the game's "fulfillment system" backer portal, which is where you'll be able to tell Obsidian what add-ons you want for the extra money you pledged, among other things. Darren Monahan explains:
Q: So, what’s happening with the backer portal?
A: I’m personally busy putting together a whole new Project Eternity website, which includes our backer portal, RSS feeds (popular request!), as well as including information and artwork about the universe of Eternity. What we know about classes, races, the gods, and more, and this site will continue to evolve as more and more is designed and released.
It is a big job though for just little ol’ me, so it’s still going to be a few weeks as I work everything out, but we’ll keep you in the know. Oh, and backer badges come with this system as well.
The backer portal will also be a great resource for those of you in the upper tiers who are submitting item, character, or location designs. Speaking of which...!
Q: When will I be able to start submitting my item, character, or location designs?
A: The guys have been talking quite a bit about this recently and have already started designing out the forms. Our current plan is to have those of you with those tiers be able to input them directly in our backer portal, and you can revise them at any time up to a certain point down the road (which we’ll let you all know – this point is when we would send out your text for translation, and it becomes expensive from this point to make edits.) But until then, start thinking about the concept for the thing you’d like to add! Adam will have an update on that in the coming weeks with more detail. We’d like to make sure there’s enough backstory and content available for you to draw connections from, and our new website will be the place for that.
The update also reports on the continuation of Chris Avellone's Arcanum LP. The format of the LP has changed to shorter, higher resolution videos arranged into "seasons", with the original LP video
reclassified as a "successful pilot". Here's the first part of "Season 0":
Finally, the update also gives a nice shoutout to inXile's Torment Kickstarter, which begins today. Obsidian and inXile, BFF!
