A couple Important things to briefly go over today, starting with the Create a Faction Contest. The winner has been selected, and due to inclement weather and holidays killing several in-house playtest sessions, the announcement took longer to happen. There were several factions that were tested and looked at on the table, and the Encryption Project was selected as the winner for the Create a Faction Contest. This puts them on the tables at our first Event that we will be at demoing the game, the Nova Open.
So yes, the Genesys Project will make a more formal announcement later on... but already the tables and rooms are reserved. We will be there playtesting the game live with all of you that can make it there to Washington D.C. August 31st-September 3rd 2017. We will be playing the game, creating new factions, and talking about the game.
So yes, the Encryption Project will be one of the factions on the tables, but so will others. It is very likely that we will be taking other factions as well, most likely created from the Create a Faction Contest, or the upcoming next Life Domain.... The Fey. We will be talking more and more about this in the near future.
