Holy smokes, Rob. Yeah, good call concerning FGG. I'll be avoiding that company like the plague from now on.

Fix one bug, check it off, 99 more bugs suddenly appear. LOL

Thank you, BJ!

Itís as simple as that.

Rob, when I first met you at Gen Con several years ago I was so impressed that you took the time to look at what I was working on and explain the use of containers and how it would help me out. A couple of years ago you again took some time at Gen Con to discuss a project I was working on. Now you have championed an employee who was harassed by someone at another company and chose not to continue doing business with that company. You could decide not to do the CM and I would still admire you and think you were a great hero.

I too will add them to my "never buy from" list.

Rob, go at the pace your body needs for you to fully recover. You are no good to us if you relapse or worse... We may grumble sometimes, some many times, but we want you to get healthy and will wait. When the CM is finally launched we will have a HUGE party! :D

I more just curious then concerned. I figured it would be easy to do and go a long way to the moral of the people that did back the KS and the Beta testers too. Plus maybe something you wouldn't have to do personally Rob?

Not sure how I missed this post during my previous pass. Sorry!

We actually commissioned artwork for the various badges years ago. I'm not sure where that artwork currently resides, but it should be somewhere.

The original plan was to update the forums and add the badges in conjunction with that. We've not updated the forums in any meaningful way since then, and the past heavy use of forums in general is slowly dispersing across a range of platforms. That said, it's also not a task that I would have to do!

I don't know if we'd have to first upgrade the forums or if there's a different plan that BJ has in mind. But I'll bring this up with BJ to assess exactly how much work would be involved and by whom.

Yay! It's the little things in life...

I'd actually wondered about this a few times over the years :D

Thanks Rob. I hadn't known that the incident involved LWD. My sincere apologies for inadvertently reopening it by pushing against what seemed to me an unreasonable excuse. It is I that was unreasonable in doing so.

In an ideal world, you're absolutely correct. The gotcha is that, when the entire development team is only a handful in size, that's much easier said than done. And when there are this many projects being worked on, that's not easy to accomplish while still making the forward progress that we want - and that users are clamoring for. When we grew the team by two additional people earlier this year, knowledge overlap was definitely a priority and is something that we're progressing on. But there's a TON of stuff to get caught up on, so it's going to be a lengthy process to get there.

Good to hear that its being worked on, I know as well as anyone that its not always easy for these things to get done, so I truly appreciate that its not an overnight process.

Thank you sir! This would be so cool to see. :) It might even casue some more people to post more hehe :D

Just want to chime in and say "Thanks" Rob for the updates. As an "OG" Beta user for Realms Works, I happen to be returning to GMing after a hiatus for a couple of years while our group played other things. Now we're kicking off a Modiphius 2D20 Infinity RPG game and I thought it'd be good to get an update on where Realm Works is.

I sort of feel like I'm getting used to the tool all over again, and I had problems customizing the previous versions for Shadowrun (as opposed to D&D / Pathfinder) so I was definitely not a pro at it.

That said, I see a lot of nice improvements with Realm Works and I'm happy that progress is being made on the tool. I'm looking forward to the Content Market launching... I'm hoping maybe I can share my Infinity content or maybe write some Shadowrun content for it, who knows.

I'm very sorry to hear you've been having health problems. Thanks for the communication and status updates. It's very nice to see these updates, coming back to using the tool after a long dormancy.

Special thanks to Josh Plunkett for his Realms Works YouTube tutorials to refresh my memory on how to use the tool after all this time!

Welcome back to the beta fold. It has been a fun ride throughout all of the beta. I am so glad I got to be part of it too. I look forward to hearing from you more about your campaign and the use of RW too. Enjoy and welcome back to it :)

Rob PLEASE listen to your body. If you are tired at this stage PLEASE rest and recover. Pushing yourself could actually make things worse in the long run.

I am pretty sure most of us would rather have you around for the long haul than jump in too quickly and relapse. :D :)
