Hello Braves, some updates today!
3.0 Database and Character Builder
This weekend was the rollout of the preliminary version of the 3.0 database and character builder. If you are a pre-existing player, you should have received an email invite. Check your email inboxes and spam folders if you haven’t already.
If you haven't received one, it's likely that the email address on your 2.0 account was incorrect and we can change it for you. Just email email@example.com with the correct email and your player number and we will get it updated.
If you encounter other bugs, glitches, or errors in the new builder, email that as well (preferably with screenshots) and we'll send it to the developers to address.
Professional Focus Achievements
Moving forward, we are removing restrictions on how many Professional Focus Achievements you can start with after the time skip. Once you enter play, usual restrictions regarding wait times to request new PFA's apply, as per the outlined in the rulebook. We want this to be as easy and fun for you as possible. If you have questions, email us.
Bringing Characters Back from the Dead
If you are intending to bring a character back and haven’t already emailed us, please do so. We will have additional story information for players choosing to resurrect closer to our first game, and we want to make sure you’re in the loop.
Backstory Submissions/Time Skip Faction approval
We have a form for submitting Backstories. If you are playing a strain that is recommended to have a setting-specific backstory as outlined on our Strain Page, then this is where you would send us what you’re thinking so we can make sure you have what information you need.
Additionally, if you are writing into your story that your character did something related to one of our setting factions (was involved, did work for, etc) then you should likewise get that approved and we have a form for entering into a contract prior to game-start here that you can fill out! Example of a filled out form here.
Pre-Reg for September
It is our plan to have tickets for our September game go live at 10:00am on Monday, August 26th. Mark your calendars and set your alarms. Check-in for our September event will likely happen later in the month to give people time to settle on what builds/characters they are playing - this is just for straight ticket sales.
Pre-reg will close at Midnight on Friday, September 20th so we can prep your sheets. You will be able to still register on site, but expect it to be a bit slower as we will also be processing 2.0 item transfers at that time.
Which brings us to…
2.0 > 3.0 Item Conversion
If you couldn't make it to the Texas meetups, don't worry! We will be able to do transfers on site in September before you enter play. You can help make that process go faster by pre-counting your cards and putting them on these printable sheets:
2.0 Turn-in sheet
3.0 Item Request sheet
If you're doing a talisman, please look over the blueprint catalog available to download with the 3.0 rulebook on DriveThruRPG and have an idea of what you are interested in converting your item to. This will help cut down on time waiting in Ops while you decide what you want. If you have questions about what is allowed, please email us.
If you are doing large amounts of transfers, especially prints, please send us an email in advance so we can prep those ahead of time and save you time in line. firstname.lastname@example.org is the contact.
The Survivor's Talisman official write-up has been added to the trade-in store. For those of you who haven't transferred your items yet, this allows you to more directly preserve one 2.0 item that was meaningful to your character into a 3.0 equivalent. Details are here.
Doing these things will help cut down on the lines in Ops at check-in, so we appreciate your assistance.
