As previously mentioned, the excellent composer James Durham has been working on a score for my podcast. I just wanted to report that the draft I just heard is astounding. It is my hope that within the next month or so, I will be able to at minimum provide a clip of the piece for you to feast upon.
In other news, I am nearing the end of my first run of playtesting of the game system. A great many things emerged from the process; a mechanic which makes conflict most dynamic, how to handle shipboard combat and a host of other tweaks. I have finished this revision pass for chapter one (character creation) and the first half of chapter two (mechanics). Once this particular editing is done, I will be sending it off to a few external playtesters to see how it runs in the wild. I will keep you posted.
