First of all, let us start by thanking you for your vigilance and all the comments regarding the translation examples from the previous update. Those files were before the final proofreading, where all the potential mistakes or typos would have been corrected, but nevertheless, we gathered all your comments and forwarded them to our partners responsible for the translations. It is really great to see your commitment and we want to assure you that together with our partners (translators and proofreaders), we are doing our best to provide you the best quality translations!
2nd Wave translation update
Unfortunately, we have some bad news regarding the translation process. Few of the translators we are working with have been affected by Covid pandemic. Unluckily some of them have been infected and while fortunately there were no serious consequences, it meant some unplanned absent time (which we obviously fully support. Health is the biggest priority).
We estimate that currently, we have an additional two-week translation lag. In update #60 we informed you that we will be sending the files for drafts at end of April / beginning of May. At this moment, we estimate that we will be ready to send them during the third week of May. We know everyone is tired of this pandemic and we don't want to use it as an excuse, but we also will put health as a priority. We want to apologize for the extra delay and assure you that we will be doing everything we can to stay as close as possible to the already assumed timeline.
Now we would like to share some better news with you. Krzysztof, the Tainted Grail story creator, prepared a new version of the FAQ, which you can download HERE (click). It includes new clarifications and corrections based on the feedback we received after releasing the previous version.
Most importantly - it now includes all the second wave content!
Additionally, it clarifies some text issues pointed out by the translators during the translation process for language versions. At this point we would also like to remind you that all the most up-to-date Tainted Grail files (including updated save sheets) can be found on our website: http://awakenrealms.com/
We hope that it covers most of the known issues and frequently asked questions. Of course, it is still possible that something can remain unclear or unexplained. In such a case, you can always contact us at feedback@awakenrealms. We will gather all the new feedback and release an updated FAQ if necessary.
Miniature painting tutorials
As you may know, our roots go back to the painting studio, so certainly we have a soft spot in our hearts for painted minis :) Not so long ago, we shared with you some examples of great painting done by the members of our FB group, and today we want to show you a fine example of the whole painting process. Recently our colleagues from The Esoteric Order of Gamers published a four-episode series called “How to Paint Tainted Grail” and now it’s our pleasure to present you the first episode of this series! https://www.youtube.com/watch?
For those who would like to see the rest of the episodes, they are available on the YouTube channel of The Esoteric Order of Gamers.
We also recommend another video showcasing on how to paint the Fore-Dweller made by Mike from Watch It Paint!
Both of the videos are really, really awesome and we are so happy to have so talented people sharing their knowledge as the part of this community! If you will take this path and work on some painted miniatures - make sure to post your results! ;)
That’s all we have for today. Thank you for your attention and see you soon!
