Greetings, Crusaders! I always want to be honest with you. Below is a re-post of our 1/22/18 Progress Report because not enough has changed for us to change any number or alter any comments we'd have. We're all community members and have jobs, schools, and families, just like most if not all of you. Our plan is to attack the Setting Bible and get it to Nathan by 3 February. Warzone Team Progress Report Action Item 1: Clean up backstory, lore, and establish the ACTUAL setting Bible - Progress 98% in Draft. We're down to maybe a handful of paragraphs and then we'll send it out for Nathan and GW's approval. I'm thinking you'll start seeing teasers and the like in the next week or two: stuff that we've either decided to preserve from the pre-approved original continuity or stuff that affects nothing of significance and therefore won't face particularly harsh approval. Action Item 2: Update Lexicanum to be THE source for all information on Eternal Crusade - Progress 2% in Draft. Early last week, myself and a small handful of contributors applied for Lexicanum (http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Eternal_crusade) access so that we can start making it the place to go for Eternal Crusade information both soft (ie Lore) and hard (ie builds, strats, and tactics as @ProteusVM suggested to me in a previous post) information. There are no fewer than SIX wikis containing EC stuff out there, and I've made copies of them all to aggregate still-valid info into Lexicanum. We chose Lexicanum because it is both a wiki, possesses moderately controlled access to who is allowed to update it, and we don't have to create pages explaining basic facts of the 40k universe - they're already made and can be linked! All it takes is manpower, and if anyone is good with wikis and the like and/or already has Lexicanum access, I'd like to speak with you! Action Item 3: Draft, develop, and submit Warzone Liaisons for approval - Progress 90% in Draft, 0% in Edit/Revision, 0% Ready for BHVR/GW sign-off. With the departure of the Faction Leads to align us with 8th edition Lore, the Liaisons will soon step forward; individuals with specific missions and drives during the Arkhona Campaign. Every faction will start with 4, and as players succeed or fail in their faction's missions each faction may have Liaisons added, removed, injured, replaced, or killed. We also have larger plans for the Liaisons, but our FIRST hurdle is making them characters that could conceivably exist in the 41st millennium with real stories worth telling. Like the Warzones, they have to undergo GW's approval process as well, though not nearly as strict as if we were to try to mortally wound Abaddon. Action Item 4: Develop Community Submission Pipeline for Storylines - Progress 100%. The submission guidelines are written and waiting for completion and approval of the Setting Bible so we can drop it as a packet for prospective writers. Action Item 5: Find ways to inject Lore into current player experience - Progress Ongoing. We started a new file to go in and write the continent and factional UI 'boiler plates' in a style that both feels faction-appropriate and furthers the lore, mentioning things like continent names, giving locations to places that were referenced in the McNeill short stories, etc. Action Item 6: Write Warzone 1 - Progress 0% in Draft, 0% in Edit/Revision, 100% Ready for BHVR/GW sign-off. Warzone 1 has been submitted for bE and GW review and approval! Feel free to ask any questions and I'll answer them as I can.
