While there is a big Choice Moment in process, I decided to power on with the pages. At least page 6 and 7 can be completed without finalizing the polling on the crew, as things heat up in the cargo bay.
I hope you enjoy the new page and will consider joining us on Patreon to support this project and all of our game development efforts! We couldn't do it without our Patreons.
The current Choice Moment is to help define the two crew members to appeared on page 5. We are working together to form up the name, appearance, job, traits, personality quirks, backstory for these characters.
As this is a pretty open question, the top character ideas are listed below in order of number of votes so far. We need one male and one female, so far it will be Raven LeClaire and Apone "Zippo" Mitchel. If you're a Patreon with the $2 voting rights, we hope you will weigh in on which character ideas you like the best AND toss in your own ideas!
In the end, I will synthesize two new crew members from the top input, so it is important to chime in if you see someone else post something you like too.
The conversation is split up between the forum post and this Patreon page, so please post to either location.
Let's keep making something awesome together! :D
Female - Raven Leclaire (x3 VOTES)
