Sorry about not updating this news blurb this past week, I actually got really sick. :( Then I had to travel, and THEN I had to cover the store after getting one of our employees sick. :(( Back to Billywork - lots of UI and quality-of-life fixes that the PC's worked out. List forthcoming. -11

Working on things, Cons + Con Plague
Hey everybody, 11 here. The past 3 weeks have been a repeated whirlwind of going to / coming from cons, and then Con Plague, keeping me away from any significant BvS work. PC has a bunch of nice fixes I want to put in, and I'll get them in as soon as I can focus on code long enough to get it right without hurling. -_- Apologies for the lack of updates so far in July - between packing the truck for conventions, conventioning, and then unpacking, reordering, and packing, I have had zero time. HOWEVER, Con season is over - I shake off this cold and I'm good to go. Stay tuned!

State of the Game - June
Hey, all, 11 here, with hopefully a standard Festival thing, a monthly State of the Game report, to keep people up on what's going on in BvS!
This month has been lots of work on the Number One subgame, which has been really popular amongst everyone. We feel the powers are balanced enough to move on for now, and so have been working on "outlets" for the players with lots of T3 tickets to use them. There's going to be "side" tourneys that award prizes, as opposed to higher Ticket values. They are being finalized after this weekend, after the prizes themselves have been put through testing.
One of the big things being discussed in the PC is Resource Points, and how to better get them to players. There's lots of good ideas kicking around, most involving Contracts, and we hope to get to that sometime in June.
The Fortune Teller has been changed - I felt bad not answering everyone's questions, and people who haven't been answered may feel slighted, regardless of how random which question to answer was. The unfiltered Q&A in BC is where I'm putting that focus for now, and felt that a small monthly bonus post-Festival was the best thing to do to award people for steady play.
Lastly, the final Plot section of the Loop Arc is still being worked on - I'm working on a mechanic for the Aboveground stuggle, it shouldn't be that difficult to put together, and really adds to the narrative. If it gets too out of hand, though, I'm going to scrap it and go with simple Missions + Quests, since I really want to release this ASAP.
Okay, everyone, that covers the news! Thanks for playing! -11
