In the end Obsidian chooses the finer details such as a name for the item, its history, etc etc.

But I made it clear that is had to be linked to our pirate group.

Sweet! :)

Got my submission in as well, please let me know that you've received it Fluffle.

 

If you don't get 50+ entries can those of us having fun with it get another 80 chars to either add to our first entry or do another one? I'd like that.

 

Cheers,

What I will do is this: The deadline will be postponed to next Monday 11:59 PM (GMT +2).

 

I sent a reminder mail to everyone (sorry, yes to EVERYONE, because that's easier for me than to single out those who haven't sent a submission yet, please don't mind the spam if you have already submitted ;) ) and I also officially opened this to backer who donated less than 10$.

 

On the other hand, I would really dislike to allow more than one entry to a single backer, or more than 80 characters.

 

The 80 characters and the 50 entries are upper bounds. Remember this offer was voluntary by Obsidian. It was a nice gesture. It is not included in any tier of the FIG campaign.

So doing this will cost them additional resources. Not to mentioned that it also costs time and effort for me ;)

 

So if we stay below those upper bounds I see that as a polite way of causing less work to Obsidian than necessary :p

 

I hope you understand :)

I have sent out yet another email (Geez, sorry for the spam to those to who the content does not apply ;) )

 

If you send a submission you WILL get a confirmation email. If you have NOT received a confirmation email yet, then contact me per PM on this forum or send your submission to my web.de address.

 

In your case, Lord_Mord, no I actually have NOT received your submission.

Hey Fluffle! I mentioned this on my email to you, but my entry was 91 characters with spaces included (76 without). By your confirmation it seemed to be okay, but just for clarification, should I try to reduce it some more if possible?

Good question. I actually assumed we had to include any and all spaces in our character count. Could you please illuminate this point further, Fluffle?

Purely speculating but I imagine Obsidian will edit any submission to either fit the 80 character limit or just to look better~ fit better (so we don't get any non-lore friendly/immersion breaking entries). Two words can mean the same thing, but there might be a shorter word that explains the same thing or even phrases something better. That sort of editing I imagine.

No problem with that. Since English is not my mother tongue I expect them to improve my submission anyway. ;)

Also, one can assume that the ledger is used and filled by the same pirate. Some kind of former scribe or so. So all entries should have the same "style", vibe or color of language (however you call it). At least that's what I think is plausible.
So maybe some entries will get altered just because of that.

Makes sense, but could also be entries made by different members logging their... acquisitions? Sort of, well, work orders. Each member, when thet arrive at the ship, walks past the ledger to fill out their latest progress or so.

Hi everyone,

 

just informing you that I have been sick. I'm on my way to recovery but still feeling a bit weak (I was having an ear infection, very painful btw =_=) .

That's why I have not yet sent in your submissions, but I will do so this coming weekend.

 

 

So it's closed and there is no way to make a donation?

 

Yes the donation campaign for the Black Isle Bastards is over, thank you for your interest :)

 

I do not know if the backer portal is still open, if it is you could still make a donation to Obsidian. But as I said, this campaign here, is closed.

Thank you guys, I'm already feeling better :)

 

And I have just handed in your recognition entries, there are 27 of them.

 

It's Obsidian's turn now. I have given them all the input we gathered here, our ideas of the Black Isle Bastards, our ideas of the item and the recognition entries.

 

I would like to reiterate again, that Obsidian is free to change the recognition entries as they see fit. They can request also different entries or simply reject entries altogether without replacement. Above all else, the integrity of the game is most important. Our entries should not disturb that. They should not break the 4th wall.

So I asked Obsidian to check them thoroughly.

 

About the Black Isle Bastards and the item, as I said I did present our ideas, but at the same time I told Obsidian that we believe that they know best how to tell the stories of their games. Therefore, of course, there are also free to deviate from our ideas for the Black Isle Bastards and the item.

 

I'm curious and excited about what they are going to do with our Black Isle Bastards :)

 

I'll keep you updated should there be any news :)

I, too, am curious, excited, and also have this curious sense of elation. I feel as if, in some small way, I helped to make this game.

That's a wonderful feeling. I can't wait to see how this works out. :-D
